O Christmas Tree

Hey guys! Hope you had a great weekend! We tracked down our Christmas tree on Saturday and despite everyone’s best efforts, I wasn’t giving in until we found that perfect tree. When I say perfect, I never really know what that means until I see it. Sometimes it’s quirky other times it’s gigantic, but this year it turned out to be picture perfect. We were ready to give up when someone tracked us down and told us that we could enter a ‘do not cut’ area that they were just opening. Talk about our Christmas angel! And would you believe that that area was full of the most perfect trees all in a row and we were the first to enter! Just a little slice of heaven on earth for two tired parents and three cranky kiddos. We may have taken home half a field of mud, but it was all worth it.

I layered up for our tree hunt wearing this pretty flannel (that’s currently $25 and comes in a bunch of colors) and this cozy sweater that’s on sale at Madewell, as are the updated version of my jeans. I get asked often about my Madewell jeans and I love every pair I have. They hold up wash after wash and are very much worth the splurge, especially when they’re on sale as they are now. They run true to size and my favorites are their high-rise fit. Another perk is that they offer free shipping and returns when you’re an Insider (which is free to sign up for!).
