Is it just me or is it a little hard to get into the holiday spirit this year? I don’t know if it’s the weather or the work chaos (and let’s be honest, personal chaos) that has been surrounding me lately, but it just doesn’t feel like Christmas. I’ve been working on getting gifts for everyone, but it seems like December just totally snuck up on me. We’re 10 days away from Christmas! How did that happen?!
Since I haven’t been in the mood for Christmas music yet, I’m trying to get myself into the holiday spirit via my wardrobe. I threw on a casual white tee with jeans and grabbed my faux leather jacket before heading out the door, but then I took a step back and decided to amp up my look to make it slightly festive. I got the red plaid scarf in the mail the other day and I really love the cozy print. The red color is definitely Christmasy, so I went with it.
It was extra chilly on this day, so I needed the scarf more than I knew. It’s actually been kind of warm again lately, even creeping into the 60s earlier this week. I’ll admit, I do love warm weather, but sometimes you just need that chill in the air to make it really feel like the holidays. The scarf worked a little, but I’m not totally there yet. Celebrating Christmas in Florida probably won’t help, but hey as long as I’m with family, I’m happy! That’s what Christmas is really about after all, right?!
Are you in the holiday spirit yet?
