A bit of holiday cheer

Dec 19, 2013

It only feels right wearing red this close to the holidays. We may have not done a tree this year but I'm still trying to keep the Xmas cheer alive. I just gave my workspace a little holiday makeover, decorated our home with fir branches + garland and added some over-sized pine cones to our coffee table. We'll be spending the 24th with Martin's parents and then visiting with a few of our friends on the 25th. For the next two weeks, Martin will also be off work. The best present a girl could ask for! I can't wait to go for snowy walks, bake Christmas cookies and take lots of photos, of course. And... Martin's so kindly offered to help with setting up the store while he's off too. You know, carrying heavy boxes, building inventory shelves and other manly things! ;)

I imagine the blog will be a little quieter over the holidays as well, but then again, who am I kidding. With all the Xmas fun & festivities going on next week, I'll probably be itching to blog. Well, happy (almost) Christmas, guys. Wishing you & your families the loveliest of times!! xo

  3. Happy (almost) Christmas, V! This is such a perfect pre-holiday look - I mean, if you can't wear red at this time of year, then when can you? And your scarf and booties work so well with it; I definitely need to take some inspiration from you when it comes to dressing down my dress collection :) Enjoy your two weeks off with Martin - I'm so envious, I know you two will have the best time together!

  8. Yes, Santa is almost here, Veronika...and you certainly looked dressed for the occasion!! This scarf is such a pretty "boho" accent to your red dress and your jacket; and little western-inspired booties look good with absolutely everything, don't they?!

  12. oh V, the rich red is set off so well by your addition of edgy leather. such a great nipped-in curve to that dresses shape too, ultra flattering on you lovie!! irresistibly cheery for the season and i adore your darling patterned scarf to finish the whole look off.

    BIG yah about M being off work now for the holidays. i'm sure you both will soak in every ounce of goodness during this time! brainstorming at your desk is probably extra swell with your makeover of delights. it doesn't take much to put me in the holiday spirit and seeing your dear tree on the mantle pretty much put me in the mood straight away :) thank you for having me over, twas the most wonderful visit, just what i needed to brighten the day! xo
