Holiday Polka Dots

Happy Thanksgiving week! I hope this post finds you cuddled up with a warm beverage surrounded by family and friends {or a cocktail, depending on how your family gets down} 
I have a ton to be thankful for and I try to remind myself to count those blessings all year round. But, of course, when life gets in the way it's nice to have holidays like this to give us time to reflect and remind us. 

This year I will be reunited with my parents {after 3 long months}, my grandparents, cousins, aunts, and uncles, sister, and my boyfriend who will be taking the flight with me to enjoy, what the weather calls for, a snowy Thanksgiving! Will be nice to see a few days of snow opposed to our constant 70 degree weather {which by no means am I complaining about, ya'll!} 

If you follow my instagram, @xochristinemarie, then you saw a picture from this past weekend of a Christmas Pinterest Party with some girlfriends. We made appetizers, desserts, and took a Michael's trip to get supplies for our Christmas DIYs. While sipping some wine and watching a chick flick we got to crafting and had a great night! Yes, yes I know, it's not even Thanksgiving yet -- this way we can enjoy our newly made Christmas decor all season long! 

With all our Christmas crafting I thought, hey, it's never too early to give some Holiday outfit inspirations and I couldn't think of a better way then to introduce my new favorite holiday item. I love gold and polka dots all year round, but something about their combo screams 'festive' in my eyes. Adding my favorite Kendra Scott accent ring and it's just enough to say "Bring on the eggnog!"
