Green for Christmas

I love red and sparkles so much, sometimes I forget about wearing green during the holidays.  So when I saw this choker top at Express, I knew it would be perfect back to my favorite black faux fur vest and studded booties.  And not only does this look work perfectly for the holidays, it will work well beyond the month of December too.

Can you guys believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve?  I can hardly wrap my head around it.  Thank you so much for stopping by and for all of your support this year.  I appreciate you all so much.  Wishing you and your loved ones a cozy, safe, and wonderful Christmas celebration.

And Happy Friday!

Merry Merry

Merry Christmas Eve, sweet friends.  I just wanted to take a minute away from the hustle and bustle of all of the craziness and wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas.

I have also been thinking a lot this Christmas season, that while it truly is the most wonderful time of the year for many, for equally as many, it can truly be one of the toughest times of the year.  So I would challenge you all that as you are out and about running last-minute errands today, to follow through on those little acts of kindness that tug at our heart-strings but are so easy ignore the busier we are.

If you think something nice about a stranger you see, tell them.  Open or hold a door for someone.  Don’t be impatient with the sales clerk checking you out.  Smile and say “hello” or “Merry Christmas”  to people you pass.  Buy a drink for someone at Starbucks.  Help a little old lady with her groceries.  Tell your family and friends how much you love and appreciate them. No matter how big or how small, YOU have the ability to really make a difference for someone who is hurting this holiday season and be a light for all to see the true meaning of Christmas.  I love you all so much and am so grateful for all of your support this year.  Thank YOU so much for following along with me on this journey.

Red and Green

Okay, okay.  So as cliché as it might be this time of year, I do love a good old red and green combo.  Particularly when it is slightly more subtle than a traditional Christmas red and green.  So with that said, for today’s outfit, I substituted Kelly green with olive, which slightly tones down the combo.  And while it still feels festive, it isn’t over the top.  Can we also talk about this jacket for a minute?  Not only is it super soft and comfy, but it’s also under $30!  Amazing!

Holiday Glam

This gold skirt was one of my very favorite purchases last year, and it’s still one of my favorite things in my closet this year too.  It really is the perfect choice for a Christmas or NYE party, and you can style it so many different ways throughout the year too!  So if you’re still on the hunt for something fun and festive to wear this week or next, I’ve linked several similar options below.
