Well, Christmas is two weeks away. I’m not mentioning this as an attempt to add stress to your day, but more of an effort to help you refocus and enjoy what you can out of the coming weeks. It’s so easy to get distracted and fall into all the busy-ness of right now. This year I set a limit on how much I was buying the kids and had that list checked off pretty early. I do most shopping online and that saves so much time from my day and I often get better deals that way too. I still have a handful of others on my list, but I’m trying not to let that part of the season overwhelm me. We’ve been attending concerts, church events and other various Christmas happenings because they will all be here and gone before we know it. We also started reading this Advent book as a family each evening. It’s not picture perfect each night, but I love how it brings us all together and helps us to keep our focus on the real reason for celebrating.
I wore this outfit yesterday to church and then to a Christmas Concert that my mother directs. The cardigan is so cute and cozy and I love it’s slightly cropped length. It’s going to be put to work in my wardrobe for sure! It would also look great dressed up over a top like this and pants such as these. But you know me and my casual everyday. And speaking of casual everyday, I bought these boots a few weeks ago for that very purpose. I didn’t expect for them to be much of a stand-out bootie, but you wouldn’t believe the amount of people that stop and ask me about them. I not only love the wedge that adds great height without sacrificing comfort, but also the fact that they are insulated and waterproof. Basically your perfect winter boot when you’re still looking for a bit of style. They were a splurge but I knew I’d be getting my wear out of them, so if there’s still room on your Christmas list you may consider adding them!
