A California Christmas


Dress* Ross, Tights and Booties* Forever 21

Sterling Silver Bow Earrings* InPink, Sunnies* H&M

Now I’m playing catch up and I have lots of outfits to share with you guys from my trip home over the holidays!  Christmas in California was definitely a warm one!  I was quite happy to have a change of scenery and to soak up the sun rays.  And of course, it was wonderful to see my family and spend time playing games and just generally goofing around with them.  Since my sister knows all about the blog, it was easy to get her to take outfit pictures for me the whole time I was home (thanks a bunch sis! :D)  For family pictures, my mom asked us to all wear purple on Christmas day, so I borrowed this pretty sweater dress from my sister.  As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a sucker for a sweater dress because it’s easy to throw one on and look chic!  If I didn’t know that my sister reads this, I might have stolen borrowed this one from her! ;)

    A colour-coordinated family portrait is such a fun idea! It’s nice that your mom picked the colour purple instead of the usual green and red. You all look good in it!
