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!  


Ocean Blue & White Denim

Finally Sharing More About Charleston, a trip earlier this spring...

After a relaxed day at the beach it was time to get ready for date night back in the heart of Charleston. On this trip I booked us to stay outside of Charleston on the ocean at the Isle of Palms. We stayed at the The Wild Dunes Resort, which I highly recommend! Its a large resort with a full service hotel, condos, and town houses on the property with lots of amenities to complete your stay. We opted to stay in a condo with private beach and pool access which allowed us the convenience of all amenities you would have in the home. After escaping the loud and busy city it was so calming to stay some place quiet. More to come on this great spot with a travel post in the near future, I promise!

For one of our dates nights we adventured off the resort back into downtown Charleston for some delicious seafood. We loved having the laid back feel of the resort then being able to adventure and wander in gorgeous Charleston. This particular look was easy and simple, I don't like spending tons of time getting ready when on vacation. White denim are a great transition to evening in the summer and I've had these Paige skinnies for a while and are worn on repeat.
