Candy Cane Knuckle Ring – Atop a Cupcake
Merry Christmas Everyone! There is nothing better than spending the holidays with your family and this year, Ashley and I are celebrating Christmas with our family in beautiful South Carolina. It is our first Christmas on the beach, and I must say, it is quite an experience, especially this season. Mother Nature has become quite good at being unpredictable. One day we will be at the beach in nothing but a t-shirt and the next day we will be bundled up in a scarf begging for warmth! Nevertheless, it has been amazing.
Our Christmas began with a delicious omelet breakfast prepared by my mom, and if you know my mom, you will know that she never cooks. So this was definitely a treat! Then, the moment we have all been waiting for….the presents! It is just the three of us, my mom, Ashley, and me. We each took turns opening the gifts Santa left for us under the tree; then last, but certainly not least, we dug in to our stockings! Before we knew it, there was nothing left but a pile of wrapping paper and naturally, I had to play in it! Once the Christmas mayhem was over, Ashley and I decided to start a new tradition of watching the timeless classic, White Christmas on Christmas day. So after a few hours of relaxing, it was time to head over to my aunts house and have a huge family Christmas dinner full of food, love, and yes…more presents!
Dinner with the family tends to be casual, and as much as I love to play dress up and be glamorous, I decided to keep todays look comfy and easy-going, but still stylish. Today was definitely a cold day here at the beach, and if there is one thing I love when the weather is cold, it is a heavy wool pea coat! This charcoal gray pea coat paired perfectly with my plum, over-the-shoulder, long-sleeve top; and for some extra warmth, a black knit around the world scarf (as Ashley likes to call it) was the only choice! No look is complete without a little frosting, or better known as, bling. Since it is Christmas, I am rocking a candy cane knuckle ring, talk about glamorous and festive! A watch is the undeniable accessory for all styles, whether you are going full glam or just keeping it casual, and one of my personal favorites is the rose gold large face watch. Normally, I would wear a black heeled booty to add some glam to this easy-going outfit, but my little cousins got a trampoline for Christmas, and I knew they would be relentless in making fun of my shoe choice, so Ashley was kind of enough to let me borrow her silver studded biker boots.
I hope you all had a merry Christmas filled with love, joy, and happiness. Till next time! xoxo
