Barefoot in December

Happy December everyone! I am so so excited for this holiday season. I can't wait for finals to be over next week, so I can get home and relax. I have been studying so much for my finals and all I want right now is to wear cozy pajamas, sit in front of the Christmas tree, and drink some hot chocholate while watching a good Christmas movie. I love picking out comfy and cozy loungewear for the cold winter season. And I also love bundling up under a bunch of soft and fuzzy blankets. My new favorite brand for comfy and cozy loungewear and blankets is Barefoot Dreams. One of the reasons I love Barefoot Dreams so much is because they have such an amazing story. When you put a sweater on by this brand, you immediately feel calmer. The materials are made of of the silkiest satins, coziest knits, and softest flannels. I didn't know about the brand until I went home over Thanksgiving break and walked into a store called Saltwater Cottage, that carries Barefoot Dreams. I had the opportunity to do a fun collaboration with Saltwater Cottage. They have everything you need for the holiday season, and for life in general. They have so many great things for the home, cute accessories, loungewear, and so much more. I love everything that this store stands for. When you walk into the store, you immediately feel calm. The layout of the store is so serene. If you haven't been to Saltwater Cottage before, make sure to check them out if you get the chance. Saltwater Cottage is located on St. Simons Island, Georgia by the pier. I promise you won't be disappointed and you won't leave there empty handed.

This Barefoot Dreams sweater is one of the softest and comfiest sweaters I have ever put on. My favorite part about the sweater has to be the ombre. Ombre makes anything pop. I am also a sucker for anything ombre because it just looks so cool! And might I mention, this sweater also comes in a bunch of different colors... and it's under $100. Whoop whoop! Not only is this sweater perfect to feel comfy and cozy in while sitting at your house, but it is also the perfect sweater to layer over a cute outfit. I paired this sweater with a thermal sweater from Free People, some basic black leggings, black heeled booties, and - the item that pulls the whole outfit together - a spoon necklace.

I am extremely picky about statement jewelry, so to find a statement necklace that I am in love with is rare. This spoon necklace was the perfect statement necklace for me because it is unique and doesn't look like any other necklaces. It is simple, yet so detailed. They are three spoons put together to create one beautiful piece. I also am a sucker for chokers, and this is the perfect choker to make a statement. It ties my whole outfit together. This line of jewelry is made by an artist out of St. Augustine, but it is sold at Saltwater Cottage. There are many unique pieces in this artist's collection, all made out of sterling silver. So if you are looking for the perfect gift for that special someone, or if you just want to spoil yourself a little, you can buy this jewelry from Saltwater Cottage.

I have talked about these sweaters before, but this thermal sweater is from Free People. I have this sweater in a few different colors. They are also perfect for layering and are so so comfy. They are great to sleep in, on those cold winter nights.

I have also talked about these shoes before. They are from Forever 21 and they are amazing. I have them in black and chestnut. Heeled booties can spice up any outfit if you wear them the right way. Also, they are black. And as y'all know, I am obsessed with anything black, white or gray. Those are my go-to colors. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post! I also hope all of you have an amazing Christmas break and winter season. Make sure to cozy up by the fire, watch some classic Christmas movies, and most importantly spend time with your family and friends making memories and laughing. I hope your Christmas break is peaceful and restful. Make sure to check out Barefoot Dreams and read their story. Also check out Saltwater Cottage for some great finds and sweet times. Merry Christmas!!
