Holidays This Year

For the past two years, my family has gone to DC for the holidays, and actually spent Christmas there. It started out as a way to be safe during COVID but still make the holiday feel special without all the usual parties and gatherings, but we ended up having a really nice time. Getting to visit the National Christmas Tree by the White House on Christmas Eve is a pretty cool experience, and it's usually at least slightly warmer there than it is here. It was a nice way to do something a little different for holidays, even if we ended up just spending a lot of time in the hotel.

And now that my holidays are a lot more low key than they were when I was a kid, sometimes I'll just... stay in my Christmas pajamas for a few hours on Christmas and have a nice, slow start to the day. I definitely opt for comfort when I'm looking for my pair each year! I rounded up some of this year's favorites.

Holiday Outfits

Dressing for the holidays is one of my favorite things to do - it's the excuse I never need to pull out all my velvet, sequins, and metallics! Not that I don't wear these things year-round, honestly, but there's something extra fun about wearing them to holiday parties and get togethers. So today I'm sharing some inspiration for holiday outfit dressing!
