Comfy, Casual, Cozy and Coffee. That pretty much describes my post-Christmas 3-day weekend! My December seemed to fly by, but it was still jam packed with fashion events, family gatherings, a Disney vacation, sorority alumnae fun, and Christmas parties galore. Oh my gosh, I am getting tired just remembering it all. As much as I love the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, I also love the kick back and relax part at the end. It was a cold and rainy weekend here in Houston, and I took advantage of the drizzly weather to relax and regroup from the busy month.
When the temperatures drop, I love a cozy turtleneck! It is also an excuse to be a bit lazy and pull my hair back into a very messy bun. The length of this turtleneck fits perfect over my favorite pair of black skinny jeans. I like that it is not to long so I can pair it with over the knee boots. Since I am a petite 5’3, I like there to be a good size gap between the end of my sweater and the top of my boots. I love over-sized sweaters, but I don’t want them to swallow me whole! My sweater, jeans, and boots are all currently on sale!! It’s time to start taking advantage of some of those end of the year deals! It also means it is time to start putting away my Christmas decorations… maybe I’ll give them one more day.

As you have probably figured out from my posts this week, I did a little traveling last week. Typically when I travel, I prefer to fly out immediately after work. It is something about waking up in my destination that I love. So what I wore to work that day must also be comfortable enough for me to fly in. I have previously raved about how this swing dress is incredibly comfortable! It also is a good casual work dress, so it is perfect for my work/airport transition. I love how loose and flowy it is. I can put my knees up and wrap my whole body in it if I am cold on the flight or want to sit in a new postion. Also, it has pockets, SOLD!
My other must have for flying is comfortable shoes that easily slip on and off for the security checkpoint and sometimes while on long flights. I am so in love with these Naughty Monkey booties! As soon as I saw them on Instagram, I knew I had to have them. They are super cute and really comfortable! I do not think I have ever recieved more compliments on a pair of shoes from such a variety of people than these booties. I was stopped by men and women of all ages who just wanted to say they liked my shoes. They have a semi-low chunky heel, so it was easy to walk across the airport lugging my carry-on bag. Bonus, after wearing them from 8am-12am, they were still comfortable. I can’t wait to pair these booties with shorts this spring and skinny jeans this winter!
Yesterday, I shared some of my favorite Christmas decorations from my recent trip to Walt Disney World. I had to save the Christmas Trees for their own post because they are just too amazing! Enjoy!!
