NYE Outfits
IMG_0990.JPG

Skirt, Top, Shoes

You guys know that I love a great excuse to get dolled up and fancy. I am either in sweatpants or a dress basically. My sister and I always joke because when she asks what I’m going to wear to something she goes so are you going homeless vibe or wearing a dress? I would like to add that I also wear athleisure a good amount haha. On NYE I like to take the opportunity to get fully dressed up. I’m not a big sparkle or glitz girl (except for when it comes to diamonds, I mean come on haha). Even if you don’t have fancy NYE plans, I think that dressing up in a festive outfit is a way to make it feel different than any other night. Well that and champagne but we all know I can’t drink so I have to wear extra glitter in my outfit to compensate.

This year, I will be in Florida for NYE. My parents always celebrated NYE with their best friends and when we were kids we used to celebrate with them. They recently moved to Florida so after my dad’s passing they kindly invited us down there to celebrate it with them. We are one big extended family (kids included) and so it will be good to all be together for it. It’s another holiday in the list of them all that is crappy this year so I am glad that we will be together as a group/fam. We are going to stay at their condo and all hang out. What are your plans for NYE? Are you going big or laying low?

Christmas Day Outfits

Christmas Day is right around the corner. It’s one of those days where I’m looking to wear something that is equal parts cute, comfortable, and festive. We spend a lot of time lounging on the couch so I like to be comfortable. I also like to get on the ground and play with my niece and nephew (I mean, they obviously need to play with all their new toys and I want in on the excitement) so I like something that allows me to do that. However, you know I don’t pass up on opportunity to dress for a theme or holiday. These items are the perfect balance of dressy and comfortable. There are a lot of great sweaters here too, which are great for the winter months ahead as well. Just click on an image below to shop!

Jumpsuit, Shoes, Necklace

Who else has some holiday parties coming up? I have Jay’s work party, which is really a pretty lit party filled with 20-somethings who have that NYC-startup thinking going on. It’s such a fun time of year to dress up and really go all out. This time of year, along with vacation, are my favorite things to dress for. I love a good excuse to get fancy! A lot of these items are also perfect for winter weddings. I have one next week and I think that so many of these dresses would be perfect for it and the welcome dinner. I hope this helps get you in the festive spirit!

Holiday Cards with Basic Invite

Can you believe that it’s already the time of year to order your holiday cards? I made mine on Basic Invite this year and thought that the process was really seamless. I feel like whenever you try to create something with photos and text, it becomes a disaster but I found the process to be really easy. I also liked that they had plenty of ‘alternative’ options besides the traditional red and gold choices. I like to choose cards that are still ‘on brand’ with my style and I appreciated that I was able to do that. We’re not an ultra traditional couple so I was glad that we were able to create a card that didn’t feel super classic or traditional. They have almost an unlimited variety of color options, so that was super helpful! We are a mixed religion household so keeping it ‘neutral’ is important to us. That being said, Basic Invite has plenty of traditional options as well. They also have cards with beautiful foil details, which I LOVE. They also have cool and retro holiday cards as well as awesome holiday party invitations! Check out the best Christmas cards!

In the interest of keeping it real, I had a hard time when I saw my cards. I created our holiday cards the week before my dad died and when I came back to my apartment for the first time following his death, I had these waiting in the mail for me. It felt absurd to read the words ‘Joyful’ splashed across the top of my cards. It is the opposite of how I have been feeling ever since and I have felt weird about sending them out to friends and family with all that’s been going on. However, I decided to try and look at them as a reminder to choose joy whenever and wherever we can. There are so many reasons to let Joy escape our lives but we can’t let it fully do that. Even while living under the crazy weight of this grief, I know that I still need to find reasons to smile and laugh, even if they are just a tiny drop in the bucket of tears. I know that this holiday season will be extremely hard. I know that there will be a million reasons why I find it to be extremely painful. I also know that I need to open my eyes as wide as I can so that I can seek out any bits of joy that may be scattered around in the midst of the sorrow. When I can’t find it, I know that I will need to create it…even if its just in subtle ways like having a cozy night by the tree with my husband watching a movie. So, this card that I created may not currently speak my truth since I am not ‘Joyful’ but I will hang it up with the reminder to create any tiny shreds of joy that I can and I hope that you will find plenty of reasons to be joyful during the holiday season.

If you are looking to create awesome holiday cards or holiday party invitations, make sure to check out Basic Invite. You won’t be disappointed with the selection! They even offer an address capturing service to make the whole process easier on you. They are running a ton of promotions this holiday season so make sure to check the website for their current promotion. At this moment, they are offering 15% off everything with the code 15FF51. Happy Holidays, friends!

Easter Decor

My husband is the Christian one in the relationship but he isn't religious so we don't go to church or anything like that for Easter. Still, we like to use it as an opportunity to get together with family so we go to his mom's house every year and celebrate! I also like every opportunity to get festive so I always make festive treats and will decorate a little bit. If you also like to get festive, I linked some cute decor and serving pieces below!
