Menorah Inspiration

2

The Festival of Lights is well underway, and we love the beautiful symbolism behind the 8-day event. Another component we love? The decorations the come with the holiday, specifically the menorah. While the traditional menorah is beautiful, we also love these updated versions that will fit in with any decor you have! From rustic to goofy, there’s one for every theme.

Burlap Holiday Inspiration

6

Have yourself a very rustic Christmas by adding one element that is sure to add charm to your tree. Burlap is all you need to give your home that shabby-chic feeling that’s so popular around the holiday season. It gives your space a comfort and warmth, as well as a slightly undone aesthetic that makes anyone feel at home. Add a touch of burlap to your seasonal decor in the way of wreaths, garlands, ornaments or even small burlap trees! ae80188238a403264bb73e9c41bcbf46

Nordic Print Fashion Inspiration

5

As the weather gets colder, we take a fashion cue from Northern Europeans who are used to the blistering winter chill. We cuddle up in cozy sweaters and leggings in comforting Nordic prints. This festive print is characterized by wintery patterns of reindeer and snowflakes often seen on knits. We love combining a Nordic print sweater with a flannel underneath, a pair of jeans, and comfy boots. Or you can style Nordic leggings with a slouchy sweater! It’s the perfect print for a casual night spent with friends and family.
