I have been mentally preparing myself for the cold to finally hit us. We had a bit of snow the week before Christmas which had me a little excited but it melted fast and it was another warm Christmas for us, here in New Jersey. I wasn’t exactly complaining but I am itching to wear my big, bulky sweaters already.
This year it felt that December came so fast, I can’t believe there’s only just a few more days before 2017 arrives. I am so glad that Christmas is over with but I must say I’ll miss it very much. This year I spent the holidays with my boyfriend which was very nice. Christmas eve, my big, Italian family gets together for an ugly sweater party while we eat our seven-fish dinner and open presents from Santa. They have this tradition going that if its your first Christmas spent with us you have to be the one to dress up and play Santa Clause. Nick rose to the occasion and I was a very impressed Mrs. Clause. The night was such a blast. I always look forward to it! Christmas day was spent with Nick’s family which was a beautiful day, his little cousin’s are the cutest! I was extremely grateful to spend time with everyone. I love getting to see them.
Now that the Holiday’s are over I am having a nice week just relaxing. I feel like its been so long since I have had no obligations and it feels so great! I am a little on the antsy side so I have been looking for things to organize throughout the house. It always feels refreshing to start clean and neat for the new year. I recently re-organized my closet after watching hours upon hours of youtube videos for some great ideas and it has been a game changer! I reach for things that were hidden prior and I have an easier time picking out all my different layers for each outfit.
I am obsessed with plaid (I am currently wrapped in a plaid blanket while writing this post lol) and the weather was beautiful out so I reached for a plaid button-down and paired it with my J.Crew field jacket. I wore the outfit with jeans (what else is new lol) and these cute winter boots I found this season at Target!
I feel like target has become my new favorite place. Their stuff for winter has been so cute and the quality is amazing! They just got a target in a neighboring town to mine and I’m like a regular customer already lol. I never understood what a target obsession was before they opened one by my house! Let me just say, the obsession is real.
I really hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with their family and friends! I would love to hear all about it so feel free to leave some comments down below about what you did over the weekend.
