Christmas Eve Dress

A few days before Christmas Eve, I was out searching for the last couple gifts when I happened upon an amazing sale at The Gap. Yes, I'm a last minute shopper...but it's only because I get too excited about the gifts I buy and want to tell the ones receiving them right away. Basically, I don't like to keep the secret, so I delay my shopping!

Anyway, Gap drew me in with their cute window displays, and I happily found out soon after that EVERYTHING in the store was 50% off until noon. So even though I was supposed to be buying for other people, I bought myself a bunch of new clothes--including the gorgeous dress I'm wearing in these pictures.

I also snagged two pairs of City Flats (in black and camel), which I have been wanting ever since I heard about them. These cute little shoes are great for girls living in big cities, with working commutes that involve a lot of walking, because the flats are designed to fold into a bag. The idea is to stylishly and comfortably conquer the commute wearing them and save the trendy pumps for the office.

The sale seriously came just in time for Christmas Eve. Every year, there is a lovely candlelight service at my church, and, this year, I wanted to dress in something extra pretty for the celebration of Jesus' birth!

After church, I went with my family to my grandparents' home for a light dinner and gift exchange. I was so glad to see the fireplace lit when we arrived. My oh my, it's cold outside right now! It's so smart of me to be wearing sleeveless dresses, right? 

In other news, my hair is getting SO long, and I'm really starting to notice it in pictures lately. Even though I need a trim, I'm definitely a fan of the length!

Overall, it's been a really wonderful past few days. Christmas day was filled with family time, Christmas movies, delicious food, and lovely gifts. I really am so blessed to have a family that loves and supports me no matter what. Couldn't ask for better!

  1. You were looking real stylish! I had no idea how much thought went into putting that together, haha. I hope you keep blogging after the big move. Proud of you, and I'm gonna miss you!

  2. I really like that dress too! I especially like the white zigzags! Everybody buys stuff for themselves on Christmas, and some just won't admit it! I got a nice blouse for myself too, but it was really cheap, so I didn't feel bad about it. :) Also, I wear summer dresses all year long---just pile on the layers!

    Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! The holidays aren't over! Can't wait for New Year's Eve!

  3. Ohhhh em gee :) so cute, I die.
