Merry early Christmas y'all! I'm just about done getting my gifts for everyone, which gives me a little time to wrap them before Christmas, which is a few days more than normally. Christmas Eve is one of my absolute favorite parts of the year. The candle light service at my family's church always gives me chills. I know it's easy for me to get caught up in exams, shopping, and baking, and forget the true meaning of Christmas. (cliche, I know). As fab as all the gifts under the tree will be {like that J.Crew vest I asked for, Mom;)}, none of it compares to the gift of Jesus. I love how we can universally celebrate the birthday of our Savior and I can't wait to celebrate it with Him one day! 

No birthday celebration would be complete without the perfect outfit, am I right?? I love getting dressed up for the Christmas Eve service. It's the perfect occasion to go a little over the top, plus it's during the winter which already is one of the best seasons for fashion in my opinion. 

Can we just take a minute for this coat? It's so over the top, but I'm obsessed with it! I originally saw it on


next to a Balenciaga bag so I just assumed it would be one of those "one day" pieces. Last year, Amber from

Barefoot Blonde

posted it from


for a crazy good price! Unfortunately, it was sold out, but I emailed, called and searched all over until I found an exact replica at Romwe. I figured I wouldn't be able to link it because it was last season, but thankfully I found another replica at a different website for even less than what I paid (link above). Get it while you can! I think the white faux fur looks amazing next to the red suede. Together, it makes the perfect Christmas Eve outfit!

Happy Birthday Jesus!!

Tweed is one of my favorite parts of winter fashion. It's so effortless but makes me feel like I'm strolling the streets of Paris. I personally feel that a tweed dress is not complete without pearls!

With Christmas Eve coming up, this would make a great outfit for any church service or other holiday party you may be attending. This was my Christmas Eve service dress last year, but I'm still completely in love with it. 

Check back Monday for my Christmas Eve service outfit for this year!
