Can you believe that St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner? Yesterday while I was making my bed, I randomly thought, “I miss Christmas.” I’m still over here suffering from lingering feelings of post-Christmas sadness, and St. Patrick’s Day is about to come up and smack us in the face with a giant green four leaf clover (figuratively of course, depending on how wild your St. Patrick’s Days get). The point is that time flies. So in an effort to get my schedule into gear, I put together an outfit that would be so cute for the holiday!

This top is from Red Dress Boutique, and I really love it! To be honest, I love anything off the shoulder. I also love anything gingham. So I was sold pretty much instantly. I would also love this top with some white jeans too! Also if you are looking for a good place to get fun clothes at a decent price, Red Dress Boutique is one of my go-to places!

This year I will be spending St. Patrick’s Day with my dad in Memphis, TN! We are headed to Arkansas over my spring break to visit my grandparents for a few days, but on the way there we are staying the night in Memphis and spending some time there! My dad used to live there before he met my mom, and they actually ended up getting engaged there, so he is excited to show me around. What are your plans for the holiday??

Hello, everyone! I hope you all have had a great week so far. I am in the middle of finishing up a work week in Charleston before I head home in a few days to see my family and enjoy my holiday break! I am SO ready to be home. I get pretty homesick when I’m not with them this time of year, so I tend to be pretty wired and antsy to get home by the time the day finally comes. I’m just ready to eat good food, drink some Moscato, and soak up the best time of year with my favorite people in the whole entire world (and my pups).

This is one of my favorite looks that I’ve done on my blog so far. It’s at least in my list of my top ten favorites. I love how Christmas-y the pictures ended up looking, and how nicely my coat tied the whole outfit together (minus the lint and stray hairs you can see resting on it. Dang, my camera is almost too good). It’s not hard to get too Real Housewives of New Jersey when wearing leopard pants, but I think I did a decent job of allowing that not to happen lol.

I hope you all are having a fantastic week so far and enjoying time with your loved ones!!! I am truly so grateful for all of you that take the time to read my blog, and I wish you all nothing but the happiest of holidays!! Now time to go mask my homesickness and loneliness by tearing into the bowl of Christmas candy I have sitting on my coffee table. Post-Christmas health cleanse…I actually think I’m ready for you.

Happy December!!! Only 21 more days until Christmas! I am so ready to be home for the holidays. It’s all I can really focus on right now (looks like I’m in good shape for finals, huh? haha). I’ll study for my finals after I finish looking at Christmas cookie recipes on Pinterest. “Just ten more minutes,” has been my motto the past few days.

I wore this outfit when I was home for Thanksgiving and my family and I went to get a Christmas tree! I love love love this cape! It is so festive and really good quality. It sold out so many times online, so it was long gone by the time I was able to wear it. But I found some similar ones that are really cute, so those are all linked for you guys!

I hope you all had a great weekend, and are enjoying this holiday season with your loved ones! I’m gonna go narrow down my Christmas cookie recipes. As soon as I get to Charlotte for the holidays, I plan on having a baking extravaganza…all in the name of staying warm for the winter 😉
