Holiday Outfit Ideas

It’s hard to believe that Christmas is next week! This month sure has been a busy one, and I’m trying to soak in every minute of this holiday season now that my sister’s wedding is over (and oh what fun it was!). I wanted to share a couple of holiday outfit ideas in case you’re still searching for the perfect outfits to wear next week. When deciding what to wear on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, I love to select pieces that are festive and I always wear a fun pair of earrings. We don’t do anything where I need to get very dressed up, so I usually opt for something that’s comfortable too. Here’s what I’ll be wearing next week:

Gift Guide: For the Jewelry Lover

Gift Guide: For the Jewelry Lover

I recently stopped by Diamonds Direct in Raleigh, NC to do a little Christmas shopping! They have so many pieces that would make great gifts this holiday season, so I thought it would be fun to share some gift ideas for the jewelry lover that you have on your list this year. Here are some pieces that I found:

For Him:

I actually gave my husband a pair of cuff links as a gift to wear on our wedding day, so they are a great option for your fiancé if you are a bride-to-be. Every man needs a good pair of cuff links though for a special occasion, and it’s a great gift because it isn’t necessarily something that they would buy for themselves.

 

For Your Grandma:

I was so impressed with the selection of pearls at Diamonds Direct! Pearls are such a classic piece of jewelry that goes with everything, which is why I think they would be a great gift if you need a something to buy for your Grandmother this holiday season. I do love the fun twist on these pieces though, especially the ring!

For Your Sister:

My sister is definitely one of the easiest people to buy for each year, and I love shopping for her. She’s a big fan of jewelry like I am, but the only requirements are the pieces can’t be too big or too heavy. I immediately thought of her when I saw these flower earrings because of the size, and how fun they are!

For Your Best Friend:

Gift Guide: For the Jewelry LoverThese earrings would go with just about everything which I love, but they also have a fun twist to them too with all of the little diamonds and different shapes! They are a great option if you still need to purchase something for your best friend.

For Your Mom:

My Mom loves jewelry that is timeless, but she loves a little sparkle too! I really love these hoop earrings for her, and I could see her wearing them on repeat.

You can check out more gift ideas from Diamonds Direct here. Also, for the remainder of the month, Diamonds Direct is offering 0% APR for 3 Years on all approved purchases! Financing cannot be combined with other discounts or on previous purchases and is only offered until 12/31.

Happy Birthday, Charlotte!

And just like that, our little girl is one! This time one year ago I went in for pre-op testing for my scheduled c-section on December 14 (Charlotte was breech), and found out that I would be having her on December 13 instead. I remember feeling absolutely terrified, but I was so excited to meet our daughter and to become a Mama. After waiting around for countless hours, they wheeled me back into the delivery room and I immediately burst into tears. There were so many people in that delivery room and I was absolutely terrified to have surgery for the first time in my life. Not to mention, my husband wasn’t allowed in there at first. Once he came into the room though I immediately felt a sense of calm over me and felt so much better having him by my side. Just a short while after that we heard this loud cry, looked at each other, and knew that our lives had forever changed.

This past year has been full of sleepless nights, lots of tears, and also a lot of love and laughter. Now we are parents to a one year old! I’m thankful that these days we are getting a lot more sleep and life with her has become a little easier (for now I’m sure). Charlotte is crawling all over the place and has also taken a few steps which is exciting. She also has quite the sassy personality and loves to talk up a storm all day long. I can’t wait to see what the next year brings. Happy Birthday 1st Birthday, Charlotte!

Holiday Plaid Top

This is the outfit that I wore on the second day of our trip to Winston-Salem (you can read more about our trip and enter the giveaway here)! I picked up this top at Old Navy recently and thought that it would be the perfect holiday plaid for visiting Winston-Salem during the holiday season. I paired it with these gray booties from Soft Comfort that I recently received and I absolutely love them! They are so comfortable, and they were great for a day of walking around and exploring the city. I’ve been wearing them a lot recently because I’m definitely all about comfort these days.
