After a long week at work, I crave a weekend curled up at home in my coziest clothes, wrapped up under the blankets with a good book. This weekend feels like the calm before the storm. With lots of work things coming up and holiday parties and festivities it will be a busy December!
That’s one of the reasons I took advantage of this weekend to just wear one of my comfiest Christmas sweaters. I love it not only because of the darling reindeer print, but also because it’s festive without being too loud and obnoxious. (Though don’t get me wrong, I love myself a good loud and obnoxious Christmas sweater, but there’s a time and place for everything!). This sweater is perfect for when you just want something a little bit festive and don’t want to look like you just hopped off the sleigh from the North Pole!
I found a few other low key reindeer sweaters that are festive without being too crazy!
Speaking of festive, I’ve been decorating my apartment these last few days and even set up a little Christmas tree. I’m going to make the absolute most of this Christmas season so I didn’t want to wait any time after I got back from Thanksgiving to start decorating! Looking around at my decorations, I realized that so many of them came from Target. Last year I got a ton of ornaments and little decorations plus a wonderful gingerbread candle during a massive holiday decor Target run. One of my finds was this tiny little tree. It’s the perfect way to add a little rustic touch to your decor without worrying about any pine needles! (I am literally still finding pine needles from my tree last year…. lesson learned!)
I cannot wait until I have an actual house, so not only will I have more room for all my holiday decorations and a really gigantic Christmas tree, but I’ll also have the chance to put up lights outside. I always love driving around the neighborhood and seeing everyone’s different Christmas lights. Until then I’ll just have settle for stringing up some lights in my apartment and calling it a day!
Here are some of my favorite holiday decor items that I’ve seen so far. I’ve got to keep reminding myself that I only have a little apartment and can’t just overwhelm it with decorations… but really can you ever have too many Christmas decorations??? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
