Season’s Greetings!

As if you haven’t heard Season’s Greetings enough.

Oh. M. Gee. I’ve spent the past couple of days in a state of pure bliss complete with one spa day, my boyfriend’s arrival to Houston and no emails.

The more I grow older, the more I realize the holidays are less about presents and more about the mental break you receive. My mom asked me, “what do you want this year for Christmas?” of which I replied, “to spend time with family and relax.” Between running this blog and maintaining “some sort” of social life, it’s been quite the year. But I’ll touch on this subject later next week when we talk about dun, dun, dun… New Year’s resolutions (which I’m actually not a big fan of but nevertheless, participate in every year.)

K, let’s talk fashion now.

Hello hello!

We are T-MINUS one week until Christmas! Say what?!

Today’s my last day in Palm Beach before I dash off to Texas. I’ve spent the past week shooting SO many fun outfits for you guys. I cannot wait to share them! I did this so I could take a proper break and spend time with family. I do this every year – it’s my way of unplugging. (Even bloggers need to unplug every now and then!)

I’ll still be posting but not shooting! You would be amazed at how much time it takes between styling, steaming, hair and makeup and location scouting. It’s a lot! AND the best part of the holidays? NO EMAILS. Can I get an, “AMEN!” Bloggers are bombarded with emails on a daily basis but during the holidays, it’s quiet so I CAN’T wait!

Want know what’s on the agenda this Christmas break? One spa day. Lots of holiday movies in PJs with my family and boyfriend (yes, he’s coming!). Some shopping (for myself, duh). And reading.

But I digress – let’s talk about today’s look!

When it’s as warm as it’s been here in Florida – upwards to 90 degrees (can you believe it?!) – it’s a small victory to look anything but a hot-mess-express by the end of the day. Seriously. The only way to combat the heat to is to wear a cute dress, shorts, a romper or to sit directly in front of an air conditioning unit with a cold face mask on (yes, in case you’re wondering, I do this often while sipping my morning coffee.)

A couple years ago, a friend of mine from Paris taught me the phrase, “je ne sais quoi” in French. I repeated it. He giggled (because my accent was terrible) and said I was cute for trying. “What does it mean,” I asked. “I don’t know what,” he said with a coy smile.

Confused, I did a quick Google search on my phone and found (according to the good ole’ internet) that it meant, “a pleasant quality that is hard to describe.” Vague, right? I asked him again. He said, “it meant something special. A woman with je ne sais quoi stands out. Not because of what she’s wearing or how pretty she is but because of her personality. Her presence. Her wit. Her confidence. Her style and sophistication.”
