A Rustic Glam Christmas in a Blushing Holiday Outfit

Monday, December 26, 2016

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend with family + friends, your pets, or solo. This year we stayed in Houston, in lieu of traveling to California to see my side of the family. I was completely on board with that, as it just comes with the territory of moving far away from home. Christmas was indeed a lovely time here, filled with the simple joys of each other's company and relaxing while watching the kids play with their gifts from Santa Claus. 

Everyday prior to this, I was a busy elf running around searching for the perfect gifts for all our loved ones.  So after church, my hubby and I plopped onto the couch with the feeling of "we did it!" It's so funny how chaotic it can be for parents during the holidays.  It's quite a production creating a special Christmas, memorable for the kiddos. But it's all worth it when you see the huge smiles on their faces! Truly priceless! 

Today, I wanted to show the decor that spread Christmas cheer throughout the house. Most of the decor I've collected over the years, but I like to add new items each Christmas. This year's theme had a rustic glam vibe to it, so there are lots of wood elements with pops of sparkle and velvet. Scroll down to see more, along with a holiday outfit to top it all off .....

The beautiful patina of this vintage bowl, adds loads of charm and character to this table display. I also added these Mercury Glass and Capiz Shell ornaments for a vintage touch.

I love incorporating decor in unexpected ways, such as filling up flower pots and copper mugs with ornaments and jingle bells. 

Ornaments of all kinds, glittered berries and velvet + yarn bows.

The places I enjoy shopping at for holiday decor is: Hobby Lobby, Target, Anthropologie, Nordstrom, and Marshall's.

Rose Gold and Metallic Gold also shined throughout, from the wrapping paper to the washi tape and gift tags.

My favorite DIY this season! I took a 5 foot sequined leaf garland that I purchased from Marshall's for $14.99, and cut it in half to create 2 wreaths to display in the living room. They were topped off with velvet blush ribbons to finish the look. Absolutely beautiful!

This blush coat from Anthropologie was a gift from my husband last year for my birthday. I adore it so much and love wearing it during the holidays and on special occasions. The bell cut flair from the waist down is so unique and flirty! I could twirl in this coat all day!

 J. Crew "Martina" metallic gold wedges that I wore for my wedding a few years back.

A monochrome blush outfit would be gorgeous for New Year's and for Valentine's Day in a couple short months. As for the decor and our Christmas Tree, we plan to leave it all up until after the new year. It's even a good time to do a little Christmas decor shopping, since many stores are offering huge sales on all their existing holiday decor. * wink, wink

I hope you have a very Happy New Year and chat with y'all very soon! 

Warmly ~
