It’s funny that I took these photos a few weeks ago, because it seems like the weeks are breezing by! I say this every year, but the closer it gets to the holidays the more stressed I feel. Until Christmas Eve hits, I am usually extremely busy (which I am) so it’s hard to be excited, when there’s so much going on around me. I am already making lists for all my loved ones, and I am starting to shop for the little ones too! Buying presents for kids is my favorite part of Christmas, and I can’t wait to put smiles on their faces this year.
This year, I get to fully celebrate the holidays with my family, and my new family. Not that we weren’t a family before, but now it’s pretty official. I forget sometimes that we’re getting married in less than six months (OMG), and when the reality hits me, I immediately think of all the things I haven’t done yet. Wedding things are going well so far, the planning is harder to coordinate than I thought, but I am trying to enjoy this time in our lives, because as everyone says, this should be the most “exciting” time!
Staying warm and comfortable allows me to run from place to place, and I am so in love with the different facets of this outfit. From the colors, to the patterns, to the layering. I love it all! I like mixing neutrals, and this fall/winter has made me realize how much I love those basic colors in my wardrobe. I also just got a new coat, which I am SO excited about. Believe it or not I was rocking the same coat I got junior year of COLLEGE.I know- I’m old. I tend to get attached to things, and it still fits like a glove, so I never let it go. The buttons just recently started to fall off, so I think it’s time to say goodbye.
Hope you guys enjoyed some rambling- and I hope you’re having a great December so far!
