Happy Eve of Christmas Eve and happy Friday!! I am so dang excited for this weekend, for a number of reasons. 1) It’s almost Christmas 2) I’m going to watch Elf and drink wine with a girlfriend tonight 3) I get to see a lot of my friends and family 4) MORRIS IS HOME! – for those of you who don’t know who Morris is, he is our adorable yellow lab that we fostered for a year. He is now in training to be a Service Dog Guide, for people with physical disabilities, and this is very likely the last time he will be with us so we are soaking in every minute 5) Today is my last day working at Dog Guides (this one is bitter-sweet), I might have cried 6) I have all my sparkly holiday outfits laid out and I am looking forward to wearing all of them.

There are so many fun things going on over the next week and I am so thrilled that I have some time between leaving this role and beginning my new job next year. I am one of those people who loves to plan out my outfits for every occasion, and this bright red sweater from J.Crew Factory is perfect for this season. I am in love with this pairing of a bright punch of colour with some (semi) subtle sparkle. Although I was hesitant about the sequin legging trend at first, I totally get why it is so popular. Looking dressed up while feeling like you’re at home in your lululemons is a win in my books! I hope you all have an awesome Christmas! See you next week 🙂
