Holiday Card Photos 2018


December is finally here and I cannot believe how fast it arrived ! We’ve been decking just about every corner of our new little space for the holiday season and it’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! It’s fun decorating a new space and we wanted it to feel extra cozy. So I’ll be sharing the finishing touches on here soon. 

Over the weekend Kevin and I had our wonderful friend stop by to help us with our idea for our holiday card. We’ve been sending one out every year since we moved to NYC and look forward to receiving all the mail this month from family & friends. I usually designate a little spot to hang the cards now that most are photos cards ! This year we knew we wanted to not just incorporate a holiday theme but also as a life update. At first I was going to do this right away, but then held off.  

Kevin thinks we’re probably the last people on earth mailing holiday or new year cards, but I disagree! I look forward to coming up with what we’ll do each year. This year was a little more close to home, but in the past we’ve found some great spots around the city for our photos. This is ours from last year as we celebrated our first married Christmas!


This year the front of our card will be more traditional and the back is playful as our “we moved” announcement.

We created our photos through Shutterfly and I’ve been pleased with them in years passed and their shipping is free and arrives fast. They always have a great special going on and if you need a promo code, use this one for 50% off or a free 8x8” photo book! CODE: X4DU-A7Y8-R28G-KMCJGX. Minted is also another great spot for cards!

I’ve shared mine and Kevin’s outfit details in the widget below.

Hope everyone’s December is off to a great start!  


Sweater Weather for Fall Festivities

Last weekend I traveled upstate for an event and while there my family and me headed to Becker Farms for our traditional apple picking and wine tasting. I can't believe it has been a year since I posted my first blog post, taking photos back at this same farm. It's been an exciting journey so far, starting as a hobby for some self care, and now becoming a new passion.

 This day had the most perfect sunny, yet crisp fall air. As an easy look I layered my plaid scarf over my sweater. It was fun to listen to the live music and take in all the fall sites before getting back to the hustle and bustle of the city. I've linked a few of my favorite fall scarves and oversized sweaters at the bottom of this post.

Hope everyone is taking in all of the cider and apple everything this season!



Outfit Details:

This is an easy and comfortable look for fall and can pair well with a variety of footwear such as booties or an over the knee style. There's so many plaid options for scarves and warm chunky knits this season that can be styled together. Some of my favorites are mis matching stripes with plaids or bold colors.

I love this olive green color and I found it at a great price point at Target! Their sweaters are also on sale.  Buy one get the 2nd at half price! This is my first sweater of this kind from there, so I'll have to see how it washes and wears over time. I've linked my outfit details and similar options.
