Christmas 2016

Oh my goodness it's been a while since I've posted on here! If you're following my Instagram account @lesoleilchic, you'll notice that I occasionally post outfit pictures on there even though I haven't been posting on the blog. I am happy to say, though, that I've officially completed my first year of grad school! It's kept me very busy all year long and I finally have a somewhat extended break (5 weeks!) until the next semester begins in mid-January. It all passed by so fast. So much has happened in the past year, but I'm thankful to be where I am and I'm looking forward to what 2017 has in store.

This year for Christmas I am wearing the Renee Green Alpine dress from Lindy Bop with my Red Varah Heels from BAIT Footwear. Thankfully I got these pictures a week ago because it's been raining hard here these past few days! Which is pretty much the extent of our winter in Southern California. I just love the festive print of this dress, and how cute is the matching cropped jacket that it came with? I've really been loving the prints on Lindy Bop dresses lately.

Christmas is my favorite holiday of the year, a season of joy, love, and time with family. But besides the festive lights, decorations, gift-giving, and warm cozy feelings, Christmas stands for so much more; we celebrate Jesus' birth! How amazing is it that God loved us so much that He became man, came to this broken world as Jesus Christ, and died to save us from sin? I can't imagine a greater love than that!

I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas!
