Happy Fri-YAY friends!! Today I’m feeling extra excited because: 1 – it’s Friday (obviii) and 2 – in case you missed my announcement last night on instagram, today I’m launching my second annual 15 Days of Giveaways!! You can read all about last year’s fun series here (and there’s another blog post coming tomorrow where you can get the latest giveaway update!) Stay tuned to my instagram today to find out what the first giveaway will be!
Since the weekend is practically here, I thought it would be the perfect time to share this playful striped pants outfit featuring the cutest button up shirt that will make you wanna “cha cha cha” right into the weekend. Click on the read more button below to get the full scoop.
Because I’m as cheesey as it gets, as I was looking up quotes/puns that had to do with “cha cha cha” (hence the button up, y’all) for this post, I found a quote that I absolutely LOVE:
“Optimist: someone who believes taking a step backward after taking a step forward is not a disaster, it’s a cha-cha.”
I’m definitely more of an optimist in life, but even I can get stressed out when it comes to the holiday season. Even before I started blogging, I was working in social media marketing for fashion brands, so Q4, AKA September-December, has always been an extremely busy time of year. Add the holiday shopping, holidays and countless gatherings, and it equals a jam-packed calendar. No matter how busy or stressed you may be, it’s so important to allow yourself time to relax and enjoy making memories with your family. This is something I definitely learned from last year, where every day of December sat at my desktop until well after Cole got home, and I swore I’d never repeat. So I’m mostly writing this to remind myself since today marks the first day of December, but in case you need a little encouragement to slow down and treat yo-self, there it is. 😉
And speaking of my busy holiday schedule, I’ve gotta run to get ready for this morning’s photoshoot. I’ll let this playful outfit speak for itself. To shop, just click on the links at the top of this post or use the icons both at the bottom and top of the post. Wishing you all the happiest weekend!!
