The day after Thanksgiving I start dressing for Christmas everyday. Christmas has to be one of my favorite times of year and not just because it is the day after my birthday. With my house being on the towns annual house tour, Christmas has exploded all over my house. There are boxes of ornaments, fake trees in piles and pine needles everywhere! It is chaos, but I love to see the sight of Christmas in my house. With my work schedule lately we haven’t had time to get a Christmas tree as a family, but I woke up earlier on Sunday, grabbed breakfast and went to Holly Brook Nursery to pick out a tree before work. I am very picky about my trees every year, and now that we raised the ceilings in our living room by three feet… we were getting a bigger tree! My mom and I were looking at trees that were perfect from every angle… my dad was being the engineer trying to figure out how we would get the tree into our house. Some were too big… others too small.
But, we finally found the perfect tree! Measuring tape and sass were involved in the picking of our tree. I could have spent hours walking around the tree forest, but I had to get to work!
I woke up at 6am to curl my hair because I am crazy and on the weekends I try to dress up for work. Working retail during the holidays means that we dress for Christmas every day. I have been wearing all of my red, flannels and cute skirts that I would wear to a holiday party. I have also been wearing a red lip every day after I got a free Bite Beauty lipstick form Influenster and Sephora in November. It is a matte red lip crayon and when I put it on in the morning, it lasts the entire day! The color is Red Velvet.
If you have a holiday party you have to go to, I definitely suggest the plaid classic button down shirt in perfect fit. I wear it at least once a week to work and sell a lot of them at the store. It is the perfect classic, preppy look. Scroll to the bottom for the outfit details! We did a quick little photo shoot while the guys were putting the tree on our car. I love that my mom is now the person who suggests I take photos for the blog. She has been so supportive of my little hobby lately and I am so appreciative of it!
