I must admit that I am rather a silent observer when it comes to the holiday season. Growing up, I celebrated both Chanukah and Christmas to honor the traditions of both my father and mother. And while I still celebrate both holidays with my family, I haven't had a Christmas tree since I was 11, and my menorah has sat neglected in my kitchen cabinet since college. Hoping to start a few traditions of our own, Matthew and I decided to embrace the good cheer this year. We went Christmas tree shopping earlier in the month, and we decorated our Douglas Fir with gold and red ornaments. My menorah is also set up in my living room, already lit to celebrate the first two nights of Chanukah.
Infusing a little holiday spirit in my wardrobe, I wore this lovely plaid dress with velvet detailing. As Winter approaches, my vintage furs make their way from storage into my closet. This vintage mink stole is a favorite of mine, perfect for the brisk weather or a holiday celebration.
