Christmas is literally on Wednesday, which means the end of the year is upon us, but we’ll talk about that another day! As we near the end of the year, I am going to be reflecting on certain things and just giving you guys a recap of this year. I am honestly looking forward to 2020 and what it holds for me. However, today, I am here to talk about this shirt that made me look like the cutest Christmas present ever. Also, about Christmas and what it means to me, but mostly the top.
As a child, Christmas was only a reason for getting more Barbie dolls and clothes. The kids in my family would wake up our parents and run downstairs to see who got what and what we would be playing with or wearing for the next few weeks. We would always have family visiting from all over, and there would be music and laughs in the house. My family, who can throw down in any kitchen, always made a fantastic meal, which made us gather in the best way. As I got older, Christmas became less of that, and I had a hard time understanding this. As an only child, I lived for moments where I could interact with most of my family. I still have those feelings, but now they are more fine-tuned. I want to gather with my family, not for presents are the notion of receiving something, but mostly to feel the togetherness that I crave with them. I absolutely adore my family, and every single person makes us who we are! I know that if you have children, especially young children, it is essential to make their Christmas special. But, never forget that the toys or objects that you give them are merely just that. In a few months, that toy will be under the bed covered in dust, but one thing will always remain: memories.
Now to this top! I found this top a few months ago on ASOS, I was just doing my daily browse. I rarely buy anything full price, but this was too cute to pass up. I literally look like a perfectly wrapped present (thank you, Janrose, for the bow). The material of the top is perfect for any holiday celebration and will honestly show a stop. I know you guys are going to come for me because I made an entire post about Thanksgiving outfits and did not wear any of them. But I MIGHT actually wear this top to Christmas dinner. I paired it with leather-looking pants and faux suede boots.
Side note: For dinner, I’ll probably wear jeans, to dress the top down a tad bit. I would also try tucking into a cute pleated skirt I’m feeling fancy. It all depends on the look you’re going for. Items like these become wardrobe staples and can be very versatile if tried.
