Noel, Noel


Ah! I can't believe Christmas is tomorrow! Every year, I'm bummed out by how quickly the days before Christmas go. The 22nd-24th FLY by it seems like--full of errands (I didn't avoid the last-minute shopping this year), work for those not on an academic calendar, and other general busy-ness. In a perfect world, time would slow down on the days before Christmas. I like soaking up the energy and spending a few days with lots of present under the tree, food on the table, and time spent together (with a lack of being out and about).

On this Christmas Eve, I decided to wear a couple of new additions to my closet: an adorable, subtly striped top I found at Anthropologie and a pretty gold choker from J.Crew. I almost paired my new sparkly earrings from J.Crew (a gift from my boyfriend) with the choker, but I decided to keep the focus on the choker and save the earrings for New Year's Eve. The socks were a gift from Chris last year and I forgot to bring them with me, so this year I made sure to pack them and wear them! When I'm outside, they're covered by boots, but since I kept this outfit photo shoot indoors, I decided to showcase the socks. Aren't they cute?! They're perfect for a cat lady like me!

I hope you all have a very merry Christmas! :) xo
