Hi there, lovelies! I hope you were all able to get your Christmas shopping done before shipping costs went sky high! I finished mine up yesterday. I seriously wonder if I’ll ever be one of those girls that is done with Christmas shopping and wrapping a week or two before the actual holiday so there’s nothing to really worry about other than cooking and entertaining. I wish SO BADLY that was me, but …. this year, it definitely isn’t! Ha! And that’s okay! I wrapped some gifts last night and packed for my long drive up to a cozy cabin in the mountains to spend Christmas with my family. We love venturing somewhere cold this time of year and it is a little warmer than I thought it’d be but, regardless, I’m excited to throw on cozy sweaters and leggings and just R E L A X. I want to finish reading my book and watch all my favorite Christmas movies …. and eat a bunch of delicious food!! It’s going to be so good!

I wore this outfit yesterday as I was running all of my last minute errands before the holiday. I’m sharing it because it is essentially – more or less – the type of outfit I wear when I need to just GSD or am going to be traveling all day. I have been waiting to wear theseย faux leather leggingsย since I snagged them during the Shopbop Black Friday Sale! They have lived up to every expectation! I’m obsessed! They have a fleece lining so they are super warm and really comfortable, as well! There were quite a few people who stopped me to ask where they were from. I think the moto detail really gives the look a little unexpected pop! This Nike sweatshirt is pretty long but not long enough to wear over leggings so I threw on this black and white stripe top, a great basic for only $12! I’m wearing an XS in the sweatshirt. Oh! And, I ordered this beanieย in the beige color you see on the product page and I got this blue one in the mail, which isn’t a color option, so I’m not sure what the deal was with that. If you want the one I’m wearing, I think it’d be safe to order it from that link, too. Just a head’s up because the product page definitely looks different than what they sent me!

Hey, I just wanted to send a little love to anyone reading who have had a really tough year or are hurting over family stuff this year. Listen, that’s valid. And it is really hard to deal with all the things you’re going through but, I promise you, you can make it through and the best is yet to come. Have faith!

If you’re traveling today, please be careful! Hope you get to where you’re going safely and smoothly. My fingers are crossed for clear roads up to the mountains …. not sure if that’s going to be the case but one can hope!

Have a great day, y’all! xo.

    LOVE everything about this outfit! I’m wearing something similar but I want to get my hands on that Nike sweatshirt!

    We are traveling today too- safe travels to you and Fish!
    Our Mini Labradoodlr Fitz is about as thrilled about our 5 hour drive from. We Orleans to Houston as your Fish looked in your IG story ????

    But it wouldn’t be Christmas without our sweet fur babies!

    I was wondering how Fish did traveling to and from London. I saw a video of y’all being reunited when you made it back to the states (I think on IG? I could be wrong) – he looked so happy to see you!
    We may be doing some traveling with Fitz coming up so I was hoping for some tips form someone who has done it.

    Have a Merry Christmas!!
    Best,
    Rachel

      Thank you so much, Rachel! Same to you! ๐Ÿ™‚

      In regard to traveling with your pup, I’ve found that domestic travel is very different than international travel. I have a plethora of knowledge about traveling to the UK with a dog but not many other countries. I know Hawaii and Australia are the toughest to travel to with an animal. They are islands that are completely free of the rabies virus so they are VERY strict. They require lots of paperwork and mandate quarantine of your animal for a set amount of time before they will release them to you. England used to do the same but not anymore. Anyway, I guess I say all that to then ask … where are you planning on traveling to? If it’s England, I’d be happy to help if you send me an email. Let me know! xo.
