Christmas Break Recap!

Get ready!! This is a long post, but I need to catch you up on my wonderful Christmas break so far! First of all, how was everyone's Christmas?? Mine was awesome! Filled with laughs and quality family time.

Every major holiday, my friends and I try to get together because everyone is home for the holidays. We went to dinner together on Monday. We were there for about 4 hours (this always happens when we haven't been together in awhile). We lost track of time by nonstop talking and I think the boys were excited to be together too. :)

What I wore:
Bling collar button down from Kohl's similar to this for $20.
Ralph Lauren Plaid Blazer from Macy's(Black Friday) similar to this for $24.48
Green Skinny Belt from Kohl's similar to this for $9.74
Skinny Jeans from Forever 21 similar to these for $27.80
Brown Boots from Target for $39.99

My lovely best friends!

The next day, was Christmas Eve!!! One of my favorite days! Wally and I go to his Christmas Eve church service and then we go to mine. It's a tradition now. I ALWAYS love picking out what I'm going to wear for Christmas Eve church. Then, my family and I do a "Christmas Light Scavenger Hunt" after church. This was our 2nd year doing it.

What I wore:
Red and White dress from SheInside for $31.97
Black Fleece Lined Tights from TJ Maxx similar to these for $9.00
Whoever invented fleece lined tights is a genius!! They are so soft (not itchy) and they are so warm!! Perfection!
Black wedge boots from JustFab similar to these for $39.99.

Loved the pearl ruffled collar!

A few days after Christmas, Wally and I went to lunch with our best friends from college. They live in Long Island now, so we miss them dearly! It was so so great to see them! The night after we saw them, they got ENGAGED!!! I'm so very happy for them!!!
