How are you today? Are you ready for the holidays?
I was talking with a friend earlier and mentioned that for the first time in a while I actually was really into the holiday spirit! I am fully embracing the decorations, the music, the buying of gifts and wrapping of gifts instead of letting myself get bogged down or stressed out.
One way I really helped myself out was by starting my Christmas shopping relatively early. I always say that every year and I always end up dragging my feet until it is down to the wire, then I feel stressed trying to get gifts and wrap them and end up not enjoying as much -and I love to give gifts! So, this year, I really stuck to my goal of getting my shopping done early and it has been so much more pleasant!
On to today's post! I drove past this beautiful tree the other
day while running a few errands and instantly the vision began to form in my mind!
I knew I wanted to create a romantic, Christmas look and since this dress is the epitome of romantic it just made sense!
The only problem?
It has been bitterly cold the last few days!
I damn near froze shooting this! But it was worth it! I got so many great shots with the tree, and under this walkway with columns, which is an aesthetic I love!
This dress is such a dream! I got it at Apricot Lane Boutique for 50% and snatched it up the moment I found my size! The cut outs in the front and the open back are such beautiful and subtly sexy designs!
Because I'm larger in the chest, I often have a harder time with open back styled dresses or shirts, which is a shame because I love them! Especially for summer! Finding a way to support my breasts -because going braless is just not an option for me- is very tricky! But this dress allows me to wear a normal, well-fitting bra without it showing!
Have a great weekend!
