red christmas dress

Ahhh, it’s good to be back in NYC (and to be back on the blog)! I took a red-eye from LAX on Saturday night and got back to the city on Sunday morning. It was so nice to be home and see my family for Christmas, but I’m also happy to be back here in my cozy little bedroom.

Another nice thing about being on break is that I had plenty of time to take photos in daylight. Stay tuned, as this is the first of several outfit posts from CA! I brought a couple of fancier dresses with me and this LRD (little red dress) was one of them. After adding a statement necklace and a red lip, I was all gussied up and ready to go.

I borrowed these fun heart-shaped sunnies from my sister. I’d forgotten my own sunglasses at home, but luckily she had a spare pair for me in her car. And speaking of cars, here’s a fun little selfie that I took with my siblings that same day. I love these guys.

      Thank you Jenmarie! It’d been a while since I’d taken a picture with my siblings :) I can’t believe how grown up they’ve become!
