I love the Salt Lake Temple. It is one of the prettiest sights in the entire world to me. Especially at Christmas time when the lights cover the trees and everything glows. It is truly magical, and there are few other things that makes it feel so much like Christmas.
On Sunday I went on a date to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir Christmas Concert. When we walked outside after the concert was over, big snowflakes were gliding through the air as if welcoming in Christmas. It was wonderful.

Merry Christmas my friends
I am going through a little obsession with H&M right now. There are so many options there that look AMAZING with Spring Bright leggings. My favorite thing about H&M, though, is that I can go spend $10 on an adorable new sweater when I need something new to wear on a date. For some reason a new sweater makes me feel so much more confident and excited for a date. In this case I was about to go on a second date with the cutest guy I’ve ever met and needed something to feel adorable in. I made a quick H&M run and got a steal of a deal on a white cable knit sweater which was only $10. How much more perfect is that? It is one of my favorite wardrobe pieces. I wear it way too much, but I don’t even care. It is so comfortable. It is the perfect date sweater too, because it is thick enough to justify not wearing a coat, warm enough in case the boy you are with isn’t a gentleman, and cozy enough to make a gentleman think about offering you his coat. And what’s better than that?
Can I just say… I LOVE this coat (and no, I did not make it). I “favorited” it and so now I see it every time I get on Etsy. I adore the neck, the buttons, and the petal hem. It would look FABULOUS with these Evergreen Christmas Leggings from Spring Bright.

Today I made a skirt which I named “A Christmas Romance.” You can view it here…
I had a fun time designing and sewing this skirt, and am excited that it is now available for purchase!!! It is so elegantly beautiful. It will be my go-to piece this holiday season.
Last night I watched my very favorite movie ever, White Christmas. I adore the style of the movie. All of Vera Ellens clothes in that movie I would wear in a heartbeat, if only we still wore dresses and looked so classy from day to day. Oh how times have changed. I think, though, that the skirt I designed today could definitely have been seen on Vera Ellen with just a bit longer of a hem-line. I love watching pieces of past fashion statements come back in style.
I can’t believe there STILL isn’t snow on the grounds. This fall has lasted so long, and I love it. It looks so beautiful. As much as I am looking forward to the white snow covered trees and sledding, I am happy with this weather for as long as possible. Today I wore the Woodland Skirt from Spring Bright that I designed. I adore the fabric of this skirt. Fabric is everything. It can make or break a design, that’s for sure. In this case I took an extremely simple design of a skirt and the fabric made it fabulous. The golds and greys and blues in the skirt really make it stunning. ❤
The petal skirt meets with two pleats at the front. There are no additional seams to the skirt keeping the lines of the fabric flawless. It is simply one cut of fabric. There is a waist band with a pocket in the inside back of the band, which I love.
Also, a shout-out to My Kind of Wonderful Photography for taking these stunning photos.
Spring Bright does custom sizing for no extra charge. Simply put in your measurements in the notes at checkout and get a skirt specifically made just to fit you.
Yesterday and today I got paid to decorate for Christmas (I love my job!!!). Presenting my favorite tree:
This was in an office located in a sky rise at City Creek Mall. I love the silver and golds on this tree. The light colors really pop against the green of the tree. It makes a sparkling statement.
On another note, I was watching Santa Clause 2 with my roommate last night and have decided I need to marry Santa Clause. I really do think he is my “soul mate”, if soul mates actually did exist… I told my roommate this and she said old men don’t appeal to her…
I’m totally in the Christmas mood.
It’s the Holiday Season…
So I just spent the whole day decorating for Christmas of course! I am now here snuggled on my chase lounge in my Spring Bright sweater leggings in a tree-lit room. I love how sparkly the tree is at night, when the lights are reflecting on the ornaments and it all glistens. It is such a peaceful sight. All I’m missing is some hot chocolate… I’ll be back.;)
This year my roommates and I decorated our tree with red, white, gold and silver. I will take daylight pictures some other time, but for now these sparkly and slightly blurry pictures can give you a glimpse of the beauty I’m looking at right now. Today I came home to a town home that smelled like pine. LOVE. Real tree= worth it.
