I thought by now I would have had time to put together some holiday gift guides and shared more posts about what to bake for the holidays, but I haven't and I don't feel too bad about it.
Lately, I have been blogging less, but I feel like I have been really treasuring moments with other people this holiday season. I have always known I don't need to document every moment, but I'd be lying I said I didn't have anything left to share. I have so many outfits waiting to be sorted on my laptop and I now have shorter hair, which you can't tell in this photo with my hair in a bun.
I think for the New Year my goal is to stay motivated and to keep writing, even if it is a little bit every day. I started blogging as a hobby, a way to be creative when I returned home from a day at the office. My day job pays my bills, and while there isn't always a creative outlet there for me every day, I enjoy the company of the people I work. It might not be my dream job, but I definitely feel like I am part of a dream team.
For today's look, I decided to pull out my holiday red coat. It's a nice pop of color to a black and white outfit. The skirt is no longer available from Forever 21, and I sold it on Poshmark, but I've linked some similar ones below. This coat made an appearance on the blog when I dressed up as Carmen San Diego, but it isn't limited to just being a costume. It's also sold out, but I've also linked similar belted red coats below that are on sale now!
I hope you have a great holiday weekend with your family!
