A Very Vintage Christmas (Button Button)

Some of you may recognize Button Button and recall that I commissioned her to make my amazing ice cream sundae themed playsuit for Viva East back in July. Well, when she recently shared her haul of round vintage holiday tablecloths and offered them up for custom skirts, I leaped at the chance.

I really loved this one with its scattering of poinsettias and its red border print. I knew it'd make a lovely skirt and a great addition to my holiday attire. While I have been trying to spend less money on clothes lately, I love supporting small businesses - especially ones run by fantastic women!

Holiday Glitz & Glamour with Zapaka

Cody and I have had New Orleans on our list of adventures for as long as I could remember. We initially planned it for Christmastime this year and then put the vacation on hold when we found out we were pregnant in August. When we lost the baby in October, I suggested we re-plan the trip to give us something to look forward to.

So we did it! We booked our trip for early December and I started building out our long weekend itinerary. I love making itineraries. I loved having something FUN to plan and think about to take my mind off my suddenly dark reality. As I did so, there was only one thing I wished I had to bring with me - something new and festive to photograph for the blog!'
