This LBD is the newest edition to our holiday collection and we are in love with the satiny floral weave and feminine ruffles!  Pair it with the Allison faux fur jacket and OMG!!– pure holiday magic.

all the STARS!

The stars, the ruffles, the tie back – the starry night dress is perfection!  Pair it with tights and knee boots during the day, then slip on some strappy heels to par-tay the night away!  It also pairs super adorably with the Allison faux fur jacket 😉

the lace midi

Clearly we are both HUGE fans of this lace midi dress!  It’s such a classic silhouette and oh that lace!!  I’m sure you’ll see us both out and about in this darling!

running

Aj found out that despite qualifying for Boston this year, she didn’t make the cut to actually run the race.  Boo.  Undeterred she put on her galaxy leggings, laced up her sneaks, and hit the trail.

tree farm!!

Ash and Pavi headed back to Rancho Siempre Verde tree farm again this year, and little baby Denton took it all in for the first time.  Love his big smiles 🙂

holiday cards!

This is the first year we’re sending out holiday cards, and lots of the credit goes to Minted and their amazing Photo-Op deal.

Minted launched a deal in SF, LA, and NY, where for $100 they send a photog to your house (or wherever you want) for a 30 minute mini-photoshoot. You get digital copies of all of the photos, and Minted will suggest some holiday card designs to pair with a few pics . If you have ever paid for a photoshoot, you know this is an AMAZING deal and such a HUGE time saver!

For our card I ended up tweaking the Minted suggestions a bit, but overall I’m happy with the service.  I mean — $100 and the photographer comes to us?!?!  THANK YOU!

To style the shoot I of course called up my sis for outfit help.  Aj’s had loads of practice with family photos.  She even wrote a great post on tips and tricks for family pictures.

I chose neutral outfits (i.e. they don’t scream HAPPY HOLIDAYS!) so that I could maybe frame some to hang around the house year round. Denton’s hair was the only surprise.  It was completely out of control, but we felt it added character 😉

tree farm!!

The Friday after Thanksgiving we set out for Rancho Siempre Verde to find the perfect Christmas tree.

We loved the RSV tree farm so much last time, we couldn’t wait to go this year!  The first day they opened, we were there.

 

At RSV you can saw down your own tree, or choose one that’s already been cut and trimmed.

Thank goodness I had multiple outfits on hand (#beprepared) because it was HOT.  I ended up in the JL premium V tee — favorite t-shirt ever.

Of course I was all ready for cooler temps with this year’s reindeer sweater (so freakin’ cute! LOVE!!), but seriously it was so crazy warm out!

We opted for a pre-cut tree this year… and IMO, still just as fun 😉

And the wreath-making!! I almost forgot!  I made a wreath while Pavi and Denton roasted sausages and marshmallows on the bonfire.

 

[Next time I’ll pick a backdrop that’s not a pile of dead bonfire brush. oops.]

 

I highly recommend Rancho Siempre Verde tree farm if you’re in the Bay Area.  The people are wonderful, there are fun tree swings, a bonfire for marshmallow and sausage roasting (bring a cooler and have a picnic!), beautiful trees, and the drive up the PCH is pure eye candy.

For a full day trip itinerary see last year’s post here for inspiration!

 

I’m already looking forward to taking Denton again next year 🙂
