Asos coat, sold out (similar, similar); Old Navy top; ℅ eshakti skirt; Legacy fleece tights (found cheap on ebay, size up!); Hunter boots.
It’s currently snowing a blizzard outside, so in addition to the foot of snow I’m standing in above (look Dad! I’m wearing boots this time!), there’s even more on the ground. It’s a white Christmas around here and I love it. I adore being snowed in, all cozy and warm with no obligations and multiple cups of coffee by my side. I currently have no plans for getting dressed and I’m thrilled I did get dressed last week so I have something to show here (I assume you’re not interested in pajama chic?) I’ve been wearing my super soft Target leopard leggings and a big, white v-neck tee 24/7 the past two days and I have no intention of changing that soon.
On another note, I’m starting to have a leopard obsession, which started with this coat and may infiltrate every other aspect of my life. The leggings came next, and these slip on shoes from Steve Madden are a new love (for Spring, definitely.) I think leopard looks cool with just about anything, including graphic stripes and, may I suggest, plaid? Life is too short to not dress like a crazy cat lady in my opinion, and sometimes being a bit different is more fun than blending in with the crowd.
Lastly(!!), we are on the final countdown to Christmas and my kids are literally bursting from the seams. They count down the days on a calendar that we have and now that it is two days away they are beyond excited. To see their faces, scrubbed clean and watching holiday specials by the lights of a sparkling tree is just…awesome. They are at the perfect age where they believe with all their hearts that Santa is coming and they have been good and that all the wonder of the world is awaiting them on Christmas Day. And it is! I am as giddy as they are, sitting beside their little pajama clad bodies on the couch, watching their glee and awe and my excitement level goes up with theirs. Seeing their excitement, their happiness, their expectations rise is what makes this season so wonderful, and despite all the craziness of buying and wrapping and sending and baking I can’t wait to wake up and see their eyes when they see that Santa really did come and miracles come true.
It really is the most wonderful time of the year.
