Christmas is truly such an amazing holiday. Although my views may seem archaic and outdated, I truly do focus on Jesus’s birth being the, “reason for the season.” I know that technically He wasn’t born on this day, and that December 25th was originally a pagan holiday, but that doesn’t change what it means to me. Even those that aren’t religious can appreciate the kindness of the season.
Although it can get stressful, and we can loose sight of what it is all about, the heart of Christmas is giving, and giving is such a beautiful thing. This was the first year I was able to pick out and purchase gifts for my loved one’s on my own, and it was honestly ten times better than receiving gifts. I love my family and friends, and having a day set aside to be able to show the that is so very wonderful. Now that my Christmas soliloquy is out of the way, let’s get to my outfit!
This New York and Co. Dress (which happened to be a Christmas present!) is absolutely beautiful! It was very Christmasy, but I believe that it would be beautiful for a romantic Valentin’s Day outing, or a, “Galentin’e Day,” soiree! A chunky pearl necklace and my Jack Rogers flats finished off the outfit perfectly.
I hope that you had a magical holiday season, and that you will try to keep the spirit of Christmas all year long!
