Christmas is over; so what now? Did you guys get everything you wanted? Seems like the older we get the less festive we become, sometimes I feel like I missed Christmas altogether. Don’t you wish we can go back in time when Christmas gave you a rush of joy and excitement as a kid? I didn’t have the urge to go home and be with my family this year. I just wanted to spend it in my bed wearing my PJ’s, streaming Christmas movies on my laptop while stuffing my face with yogurt covered pretzels. However, I did get out and go to a couple of Christmas parties but I was extremely anxious the entire time to get back home in my warm bed.
I use to be very festive; decorating my apartment, putting up a tree and sending out Christmas cards. Now I just buy gifts for my nieces and nephew, mail them off and tada… Christmas! This year I wanted to do something different by celebrating Kwanzaa in addition to Christmas, the last time I actually observed the week-long celebration was in the fourth grade. Kwanzaa: A Celebration of Family, Community, and Culture may just be the boost of ‘thinspiration’ I need to keep this year’s momentum propelling right into the new year.
Let’s get into my look for a moment… I bought this Calvin Klein suit in April for Easter but went with another look. Though, its a very light weight spring/summer suit I decided to winterize it. I threw on this Converse bomber and my new Topman boots I bought for myself as a personal Christmas gift and of course no winter look is complete without a big winter scarf and beanie.
