Christmas Moodboard

December 19, 2014

Is it really almost Christmas? The days have flown by so fast since Thanksgiving that I haven't had a chance to get into full on Christmas mode. So far I have the tree is up and decorated and made some cookies that I'll share the recipe for next week. I thought I'd gather some images to create a moodboard that'll send some merry holiday cheer towards your way. There's nothing like playing some soothing Christmas music in the background while you do some holiday activites like baking, decorating the house with lights and other decor and getting cozy in your favorite fair isle or ugly xmas sweater.

Are you ready for the holidays?

Minimal Masculine

I can't help but admire the look of minimal dressing. The sophistication comes from classic silhouettes and chic basics. This editorial features amazing menswear inspired pieces like chunky knits, boyfriend fit coats and loose trousers. Who says you can't look feminine while dressing like a boy? Because this is simply perfection.

Hope you're all enjoying the weekend!

Gray On Gray

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving. After the difficult summer, I was thankful that my mom is still here to celebrate the holiday season. I took on a lot of responsibility in the kitchen this year for the feast. Besides baking a variety of desserts, I did some prep work the day before and cooked almost everything except the turkey, which my mom did (I helped though). It was exhausting, but satisfying in the end. I think I'm ready play hostess, someday.

Anyway, can you believe it's December already? The only sight of snow so far was right before Thanksgiving and now it's either sometimes sunny or just gray and gloomy.  I embraced the gray on gray days by of course wearing the color gray.  I wore an oversized boyfriend flannel over my favorite smock dress from ASOS and a pair of leather Vans I picked up from a Black Friday sale. The vibe is a little 90s, which I never mind.

Have a nice day!

Into the Woods

I took a trip to a nature reservation a few days ago. The terrain had many trails leading from one another, some rougher than others. It's a good thing that I wore some low heeled ankles boots, but it probably didn't help anyway since I was wearing a dress among the hikers and those walking their dogs. Despite that, I fell in love with the place. I like taking a trip out of the way and head into the woods and be with nature. I even saw a lone swan in the huge lake which made me think of The Notebook and also made my day.

Have a lovely day! It's snowing outside and I have lots of baking to do for Thanksgiving tomorrow.

Would Rather Stay Warm

When it's cold out, I can't be bothered with looking my best and stylish outfits all of the time. I would rather stay warm than freeze. The streak of bitter cold temperatures on the east coast most recently made me choose comfort over anything else. There will more days like this in the future I'm sure. 

Hope you had a nice weekend!
