I know a lot of people hate the cold, but to be honest, snow days put me in the best mood. I love the snow, I love the way it coats everything in white and quiet, the way it makes winter magical, and entices cozy afternoons reading by the fire and lots of warm bowls of soup. I love to ice skate, and ski, and especially sled with my kids. I must be a true winter baby because I love winter and a good snow day.
Since winter is just beginning and we have months of glorious white ahead, today, I thought I would share my snow day favorites with you all.
I love getting dolled up for the holidays and I love pieces that can be worn multiple ways. So, today I thought I would share two different ways to style one of my favorite holiday dressy pieces, the sequin skirt. The thing I love about this pieces is that it’s totally fabulous but also kind of versatile. There are so many fun ways to style it, from ultra dressy to even more casual.
Is it just me or are stocking stuffers some of the most fun things to give? I swear, wrapping up the little gifts and stuffing them in the stockings has to be one of my favorite parts of the whole Christmas experience… Can you tell I’m really in the Christmas spirit now?? I’ve rounded up my favorite stocking stuffers for her and him below. (These also make great “friend” gifts.;-)
I don’t know if it’s all the house projects and work/family obligations, but I’ve let my stress get the better of me the last few weeks, and I haven’t really been in the “Christmas spirit.” Last night we had family home evening (you can read about it here) and Craig played some beautiful Christmas videos for us. It’s amazing what music can do for you. It shifted my whole paradigm, reminded me what this season is all about and suddenly I’m in the Christmas spirit.
If you need a Christmas spirit boost too, the videos we watched are here and here.
