What I'm Wearing: Christmas with Draper James

Guys, can you believe that it's the week of Christmas?! How in the world did it creep up on us so quickly! I swear, each year it shows up faster than the year before and I'm always left scrambling! This year, I was actually fairly prepared for Christmas, thanks to my friends The Blue Root and Draper James. It's a Draper James Christmas y'all! Today I'm showing you how to throw the best Christmas ever!

Put a Bow On It!

If there's one thing that I struggle with each year is wrapping gifts. Thanks to the wonderful wrapping skills of my friend, Melissa of The Blue Root, my origami style wrapping is in the past! Her gorgeous wrapping skills will blow anyone a way. Plus, they're just so pretty that I wouldn't want to open the boxes to see what's inside! 

One of my favorite ways to decorate a Christmas gift isn't with bows, it's with fun accents like ribbon, natural trimmings like holly and leaves, and fun ornaments! Ornaments are such a fun and unique way to decorate gifts for your family and friends. You can even customize each gift by decorating with their favorite items. 

Dress it Up!

It's our tradition to open presents Christmas morning in our pajamas but on the 24th, that's when the real dressing up is! We make our annual journey to P's grandma's house in Maryland where the entire side of his mother's family joins together to celebrate Christmas. Everyone always dresses up and it's one of my favorite days of the year! We sing Christmas songs, exchange presents, and eat until we are stuffed! This year, you'll wow all your relatives by throwing on this adorable blouse from Draper James

This outfit is absolutely perfect for any family gathering over Christmas! It's simple, easy, and looks amazing on anyone. I love how throwing on a cute top and heels can elevate any pair of jeans. 

Have Fun!

This time of year is all about relaxing, enjoying time with family and friends, and not worrying about things! Take this time to truly turn off and worry a little less. I know we'll be making an extra effort to turn off from social media and enjoy our time with family and friends. That's what's truly going to make your Christmas the best one ever.
