Happy holidays, guys! One of my favorite things to do this time of year is cook and bake. From tamales to pies and cookies, I love spending time in the kitchen making food for family and friends. Over the last few years, I developed a fascination for gingerbread houses. It's weird because I am not a fan of the taste of gingerbread, but I love the smell and all of the amazing ways it is used. The BF and I decorated our first gingerbread house together about five years ago. This year we visited the Children Services Network's Gingerbread Wonderland at Sierra Vista Mall in Clovis to decorate a fresh, locally made gingerbread house by Chef Caroline.
Last week maurices graciously sent me a gift box to celebrate the holidays in style. After seeing all of the cute goodies inside of it, I knew they would create a fun look for gingerbread house decorating. I love a good sweater dress, and this one is no exception. The chevron stripe sweater dress is soooo cozy, like cozy to the point where I did not want to take it off. The soft knitted fabric makes it incredibly comfy and stretchy. Bonus: it comes with a slip lining. That was a pleasant surprise because I did not have to layer a tank underneath it (something I do with almost everything I wear this time of year). For additional all-day comfort, I paired the dress with black leggings and chocolate brown boots.
Below are a few photos from our decorating session (shout out to my love and his sister for making the awesome Christmas tree) and a promo code for 20% off your next purchase at maurices.com
