STYLE STORY: HOLIDAY PARTY


Happy December friends!!

I love this time of year! I believe one of the best parts of the Holidays is the spirit of giving ignited in our hearts. This year, I was hoping you would join me in donating to Kate's Christmas Drive. Kate is a sweet 10 year old girl who was diagnosed with brain cancer 5 years ago. Her story is one that encourages me each day and is filled with bravery, bold prayers and faith. Sweet Kate is still fighting cancer, but her concern for other kids with cancer shows that she has one big heart for one little girl. Through her Christmas Drive, she hopes to help other kids fighting brain cancer by giving their families boxes filled with relevant gift cards. For more details on how you can help click here.

It is officially time to cue my nonstop Christmas music playlist and the Holiday party frenzy! Don't you love having an excuse to purchase a new dress? I certainly do! And thanks to Piperlime's amazing sale section (who doesn't love a good sale?), I found the perfect dress! The dress was delivered in the midst of a freezing Chicago snow fall, so I was hoping to capture this look with a blanket of snow on the ground. But alas, the snow melted and rain clouds rolled in with 45 degree weather.

Huge thanks to my friend Trisikh who toughed the rain and shot these gorgeous photos for me! Plus, he taught me to look on the bright side of shooting in the rain, you get gorgeous reflections with the water & he captured it so well! Here's to Chicago's strange weather...

Friends, may we live this season fully. As Kate has taught me, each day is precious and should be faced with JOY regardless of our circumstances. And a part of living fully is living a life filled with love and grace. Grace is stylish, grace is bold, "grace is love that cares and stoops and rescues." (John Stott)
