I hope everyone had a beautiful holiday surrounded by people that they love. Today's a bittersweet day as I'm going through Christmas pictures from last week. One week from today I'm headed to London, England for my last semester of college. I'm going to be gone for about 4 months and the thought of being away from my family and Derek for that long is eating away at me but at the same time I'm so excited to see Europe and to experience a new culture and place. 

Every year for Christmas my present to myself (ha) is a new dress to wear on Christmas day. This year I went with a metallic-striped skater Little Mistress dress from Asos. I love any opportunity to dress up but this year my favorite thing about Christmas was just relaxing with my loved ones after the crazy semester that I had at school. What was your favorite part about the holidays? 

One last thing, if you follow me on Instagram you will probably notice my updates with a few actual Polaroid camera pictures. Derek got me one for Christmas! I'm so in love with it, it's been so hard not to use all of the film at once. Also, the beautiful Kate Spade bag featured in my outfit pictures was a generous gift from my mom, she knows me so well. 

Tomorrow I'll be sharing my favorite outfits from the new year. It's almost 2015 everyone!
