Merry Christmas Eve everyone! I can’t believe Christmas is here tomorrow! This is my favorite holiday! I am heading home to Miami today and I cannot wait to be home with my family! I haven’t been down to Miami since last Christmas and this is the longest I have ever been away from home! I am shaking with excitement!!! I am looking forward to our traditional Christmas breakfast! As long as I can remember, before anyone opens any gifts, we always get together around the table and have a family breakfast. Christmas is just not the same for me if I am not there with everyone at the table. Also, I look forward every year to my dad’s Christmas ham! I just think no ones make it better than my dad. I even call ahead and make sure he is making it and of course he teases me and tells me he is not sure, and that I will just have to wait and see! Along with that, I can’t wait for all the home cooking, the curries, the roti, my mouth is just watering thinking about it. I know I am definitely bringing back any leftovers with me to New York!
Along with celebrating Christmas, a good friend celebrated their birthday last Friday and we got together for a night out. I wore one of my Black Friday deals, a long grey sweater from BCBG. It is actually very light which means that this will easily be worn all the way into spring. I jazzed it up a bit with my faux leather sleeved blazer from Zara, faux leather panel pants from Mandee, and booties from JustFab. I like how the leather accents pulled this look together and gave it a sexy feel. I was looking for a pair of leather panel pants last year and found a number of high priced pairs but was so excited when I came across these for only $29 at Mandee! Since they aren’t full leather pants, they are perfect to wear to the office on a casual Friday with a blazer and be able to go out straight from work. Always great to find pieces I can take from day to night!
Thanks for reading and Have a Merry Christmas!
