I seriously can’t believe Christmas is THIS WEEKEND! Where has the time gone?! It’s been quite a few years since I’ve celebrated Christmas in Illinois (we’ve been going to Florida every year for a while now!), but I’ll be spending the weekend in my hometown this year. When we’re in town, we typically do Christmas Eve with my mom’s side and Christmas Day with my dad’s… And some crossover in between since everyone lives so close! My aunt that lives in DC will be flying in to Chicago on Friday (I haven’t seen her in two years!!) and then we’ll be making the 3.5 hour drive south to spend the long weekend. I don’t know which day I’ll be wearing this outfit, but I set it aside in my closet to pack. I love how it’s festive and slightly dressy, but super relaxed and comfortable… Just how the holidays should be!
This is the same dress that I styled on the blog earlier this week… Did you catch that post? Instead of layering a turtleneck underneath, I slipped this chenille sweater over the top and added a pearl necklace and strappy black heels… Done! Zero fuss, incredibly comfy, but still pulled together. I wish my family had one of those PJ traditions, but this is basically the same thing. 😂
Melissa and I swung by South Loop Loft a few weeks ago to shoot a few projects and I just can’t get enough of that place. (Remember these photos from last year?) The showroom/shop is open on Saturdays from 11-5 if you live in the Chicagoland area… 308 N Leavitt! There are so many amazing decor and furniture finds if you’re in the market, but it’s great for inspiration, too. Beth is so talented! And, you know, Instagrams for days… 📸
