New Town + New Traditions!

I don’t think it totally hit me until the Christmas season that we are kind of past the point of being solely focused on unpacking boxes and can move on to a bit more of the “fun stuff” and enjoy a bit of the holiday season. Of course, Christmas is usually so tied with nostalgia that it’s much more cozy to settle back into old Christmas traditions than make new ones. But what if you are in a totally new town? Well, then you certainly don’t have the usual tradition options you may have had before! This year I’ve been doing a few of the old favorite like watching White Christmas and playing my favorite holiday songs, but we also have gone to a few Nashville Christmas events to branch out and find a few new holiday favorites too. They have a beautiful botanical garden here and they light up the grounds with Christmas lights so you can walk through at night while sipping boozy hot chocolate—we had so much fun and it’s totally something that I would love to do every year! I also made a new holiday drink (an egg nog martini) and some mulled wine that I think can be seasonal favorites for a few years to come.

Of course with all the holiday gatherings, it’s always my mission to have a holiday look that I really love, and this year I’ve been dying over this gold sequin romper from LuLu’s. No matter what holiday occasion you still need a look for (Christmas office party or swanky New Year’s Eve bash), you’ll find something to love at LuLu’s. And, just by sharing your party perfect look on Instagram, you could be one of the 5 lucky winners to receive a $1,000 LuLu’s shopping spree! See below for more details!

I can’t wait to wear this look for New Years Eve in a few weeks! It’s a bit of an obsession but I always do a full sequin outfit if possible for NYE because, well, why not!! It’s the night to go big or go home, right? I also wore the jumper for our Christmas card photo so it’s immortalized forever in print as well.  Hope you get to wear something fun that you love this season—whether it’s full of sequins or not is up to you!!
