I. Love. The. Holidays. And you know the most perfect thing that happened on this day? It snowed!!!!! We get so many loads of rainfall each year, but snow is not a regular occurrence here in most of the Pacific Northwest, so we get pretty excited about the first snowfall. I will skip over the part where the next day it pelted us with freezing rain and focus on the magical wintery wonderland we had Thursday.
Sienna was insanely hilarious y’all, this being the first snow that she can remember. She was running around yelling “snow!” for 30 minutes straight when she went outside. She could not believe it! My heart definitely grew three sizes while watching the sheer joy on her little face.
Needless to say, I did not move out of these comfy clothes all day. My new favorite thing is a long cardigan. Pair with soft knit leggings, sherpa lined slippers and (possibly spiked) egg nog and you have a recipe for a perfect snow day right there.
This was the coziest of cozy days for us, watching Elf and decorating the house. It was such a nice reprieve from the busyness that is this time of year. All three of us stayed home, decked the halls and enjoyed some seriously gorgeous cookies from my friend Anna of Sweetheart St. John’s. Portland locals, hurry and get your orders in for her insanely delicious and absolutely beautiful treats. They make a stunning hostess gift (or gift for yourself.)
Cardigan – BLANKNYC Textationship Knit Hooded Cardigan – The coziest…and nicely substantial. Because of the sturdy knit, the pockets easily hold the weight of my phone instead of dragging the whole cardi down. It’s got a slightly fuzzy texture to the whole thing, but not overly so. The hood and collar make it even cozier. I cannot say enough good about this. Wearing a Small, for reference.
Leggings – Free People Soft Legging – These are nice and soft, as the name may suggest, and super long for scrunching. They have a cute tiny ruffle at the bottom, too. They are a knitted fabric, more like a sweater legging, but thinner. I really like them and wore them all day Thursday and there was no stretching out or sagging. Wearing Small, for reference.
Tank – (old Urban) But this one from Billabong is super similar.
Slippers – Ugg Classic Minis – These are my absolute favorite for winter. I like the shorter, more flattering height, but they’re still super warm. I actually brought these to my friend’s house the other day when I was visiting. Many houses here are no-shoes-inside, so I came prepared.

I will definitely be rocking this setup on Christmas morning, possibly with the addition of my sparkly Santa hat. And Sienna will be in her adorable Santa PJ’s again, rocking…this look most likely.
Peace and joy, y’all. Peace and joy.
