i cannot believe it’s almost 2019 and it’s crazy to think how this year just flew by! looking back on 2018, i was thankful to be a part of some amazing trips, opportunities, and overall experiences that helped make this year one of the best yet! i wanted to take this opportunity to highlight some of my favorite moments (and posts) from each month this year and of course, we start at the beginning!
as i briefly mentioned here, the days leading up to christmas, i was surprised with the news that the camp we were staying at in africa did not have wifi (like i was initially told). but i’m clearly not still bitter about it….nooooooo haha!
this was the one post i was extra excited to post this year because it is my annual lotte palace hotel christmas tree shoot! this is by far my (and every other blogger in new york’s) favorite christmas tree in the city. one reason why i love this the most is that the crowds are manageable and you are able to go right up to the tree - no barricades! oh, and of course i always have fake wrapped christmas gifts…duh!
so in any case, merry christmas! i hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday with your families!
well first, oopsies! i know it’s the 26th and you’re all wondering, “why the heck is she posting this holiday content now!?” that’s a great question readers, haha! for the last week i have been on an adventure in africa and because i was told there would be wifi, i did not plan out my pre-christmas posts. unfortunately, upon arrival to my safari, i was in for a rude wake-up call when there was not only no wifi, but not even cell service!
one of my favorite things about the holidays are the opportunities to dress up! even if you’re overdressed for the dinner party, people just get it during this time of year! while i won’t officially be wearing this dress until an event back in michigan in january, this dress initially caught my eye for the annual met holiday party. i ended up re-wearing this dress from over the summer with a turtleneck underneath just because i wasn’t able to get the dress hemmed in time (but i obviously wanted to keep it long for these photos because #drama).
a while back, andrea, amanda, and i decided that we needed to escape the new york city cold and head down to warmer weather for a much needed girls trip! we were so honored to be partnering with the wyndham grand clearwater to make our winter retreat possible and to say we were blown away would be an understatement!
11 days until christmas and holy crap i can’t wait!
honestly, that’s all i really wanted to say and show this outfit because i’m obsessed with this dress! haha it’s seriously so comfy (no pockets though but yolo) and i’ve already worn it to a few holiday occasions this month! oh yeah, and it has a slight stretch so go crazy and eat all the foods haha
with the beginning of the holidays, this means that fall is officially at an end. it has been fun, fall, and i will truly miss you deeply. thankfully i did save one more outfit that i shot here in nyc when the fall foliage was at its peek! this skirt has already made the rounds a few times in my real life wardrobe and loved pairing it with this oversized cozy sweater to show here on the blog! now let the christmas festivities begin and i can’t wait to show you all the holiday outfits for this year!
