Christmas Eve + Gratitude

Jacket // Top // Jeans // Shoes // Lipstick 

I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas Eve! Is anyone else sad that the holiday season is coming to an end? I've always loved this time of year and the anticipation of it. One of the things that I always look forward to the most is exchanging gifts with my friends a few days beforehand and sending/receiving holiday cards from my friends that live far away. This year I've feeling extra fortunate with all the changes in my life right now. As cliche as it sounds, it's really not about the gifts but the time that you spend with your loved ones 

Truthfully, my house has always been quite around Christmas since almost all my family lives in Istanbul and we only get to see them every other year or sometimes every couple of years. I've always envied people with big families that live close by and they can easily visit for the holidays. But this year, I wasn't filled with comparison but with gratitude. Let go of the idea of a "picture-perfect" holiday season and embrace how good things are. Even if you're celebrating with only a few family members, friends or even by yourself (I know many people are but don't want to admit it but it's okay!). There's always something to be grateful for.

As for the outfit, I fell in love with this cranberry red blazer that's perfect for the holidays but also to wear to the office afterwards. I paired it with this lace came that I got from Zara during their Black Friday sale (I also picked it up in white!) and I highly recommend a few lace tops like this that you can wear underneath v-neck sweaters, blazers and cardigans. Of course, I had to pull the entire look together with a Chanel ribbon that makes the look so much more feminine. What are you wearing for Christmas Eve? Something more casual or dressy?

Happy holidays,
