Christmas, both girls’ birthdays, and school applications– needless to say, we are staying close to home. One of the reasons we went to London in November was I knew this holiday would be a bit crazy.
So, I found a horse both girls can ride, we are exploring the nooks and crannies of the city we don’t already frequent, catching up on movies, and reading the great new books that were under the tree. On New Year’s Eve we will be celebrating with just close friends and family which takes the pressure off finding something new and fabulous to wear.
But I do want to “freshen up” an old standby and I’m inspired by this story from the July issue of British Vogue. My black lace Valentino sheath cinched with a wide satin ribbon would do the trick.
