It’s the most wonderful time of the year! No, but really, I can’t believe that it’s already Christmas! Where did this year go? This year has been a tough one for many reasons but I am learning the more that I try to control the situation, the harder it gets for myself. If there is one thing I’ve learned to take with me in 2018, it would be to “Let Go” and boy, am I ready for 2018! I have so many amazing things to look forward to!!
I got together with a few of my good friends AND favorite local bloggers here in Charlotte, NC, Lauren Schwaiger, Erika Taylor and Anna De Leon. We partnered with Gap in Southpark Mall and Kendra Scott to give you a holiday look book. If your heading to a family party or drinks with the girls and wanting to go “casual”, you may find one of our looks helpful! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do! We wanted our outfits to be similar while adding our own style to each look. I do tend to wear a variety of sweaters during the holidays and I love the color Red so that was an easy choice. I also wanted an outfit that I could dress up or down.
1 – Favorite Holiday Tradition? We are all about Christmas Eve in my family. My whole life, my parents have always gone all out for Christmas Eve…beautiful sit down dinner, all the homemade Christmas cookies you can imagine, as I’ve gotten older Midnight Mass has moved to earlier in the day, we open all our gifts on Christmas Eve and the evening goes on for hours on end (with wine, lots of wine) and I wouldn’t change it for the world. #FamilyIsEverything
2 – Favorite Christmas Movie(s)? I can’t pick just one!! Home Alone, The Holiday, The Grinch (with Jim Carrey) Pretty sure I’ve watched each of these a million times!
3 – Favorite Christmas Song(s)? I adore Christmas Songs and start listening to them way too early in the season! Lol If I had to choose just 3, these would be my absolute favorites: Last Christmas by George Michael. Happy Xmas by John Lennon. They Prayer by Celine Dion & Andrea Bocelli.
1 – Favorite Holiday Tradition? Our holidays vary slightly with each year but we always make some Dominican foods that are traditional during the holidays. I’ve enjoyed the Elf on the Shelf for the past few years but my favorite part is watching the kids open their presents on Christmas morning.
2 – Favorite Christmas Movie(s)? National Lampoons Christmas Vacation Hands down. I’ve watched it every year since it came out.
3 – Favorite Christmas Song(s)? I love most Christmas songs but Latin Christmas songs make my holidays feel more like Christmas to me.
