Hi loves! After a busy week, I’m finally caught up on sleep, in dreamy Colorado and ready to hit the slopes! I am obsessed with the look I’m sharing with you today. You HAVE to snag THIS plaid cape to sport this winter! It’s SO cozy and only $60! I gravitate toward all black looks a lot during the frigid cold months and this cape is the perfect way to add some color in a beautifully chic way! The black turtleneck dress I’m wearing under the cape is an old favorite of mine and I found THIS amazing find that is really similar and UNDER $40! Score!! [If you need / want something a little chunkier, HERE is an option that is a little more expensive that I found]
Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner?! I was thinking earlier today about it’s now less than a week away and I’ve barely shared any gift guides with y’all. I know they can be so helpful, so I am sorry about that! I really hoped to do more of them but, we can’t do it all, can we? I don’t know about you, but I totally get caught up in this idea that I need to do A, B, C, and D, as well as J, K, L, M … AS WELL AS … X, Y, and Z. And thennnn.. I tend put a bunch of pressure on myself to make sure it’s all executed perfectly in the shortest amount of time. Because I’m superwoman, right? Ha, no. I’m Beyonce. Kidding.
But, does that happen to anyone else? It mostly, and especially, happens during the holiday season, when things are unbelievably busy / crazy / insane / like, where’s my head right now? is it attached? … It’s completely unrealistic and ridiculous. I end up physically exhausted and mentally beat up on the inside. I’ve been praying a lot about this lately, and I feel like God has been quickly coming in with this reminder … we can’t do it all, but what we are able to do and accomplish, in the end, is still amazing, worthy of being seen and shared, and completely e n o u g h. So, if you’re in the same boat as me during this time of year, or even more frequently … let’s rest in that and be happy with what does get done and stop putting so much pressure on ourselves! After all, it is the holidays! LET’S ENJOY IT … for what it is, a celebration of the sweetest gift, the birth of Jesus, and the perfect time to be present and making memories with the sweetest of people in our lives. 🙂
[Whoa, I just typed all that in less than a minute and I’m committing to sharing it, so hopefully I’m not the only dreamer perfectionist out there! Ha]
Happy Sunday, friends! xo. Haley
