look book: tis the season

December 15, 2011


I’m really loving layering button-ups under sweaters and making them more girly {less tomboyish} with a pretty necklace. It’s a little more me. It’s also fun to mix and match with different prints, like plaids and florals. One thing that I think helps is if they’re in the same color family, in this case color family blue. It makes it work a little more seamlessly and you avoid those stares of “what the heck is she wearing?!” although I’m sure I’ve received those before..

One thing that I love about this time of year is making time for family and friends. My close group of girlfriends {Lizzie, Hanna and Pauline} and I have a yearly tradition of going to an Italian restaurant in Pasadena for dinner each December. It’s always something to look forward to and every year we sit around the table and talk for hours. It’s weird to think about where we were in previous years and where we’ll be in the future. {Like last year we were talking about the upcoming wedding!} One thing I’m grateful for is that we’ll always be friends and always keep this fun tradition. 
Do any of you have holiday traditions that you keep with your friends or family?
