The holiday season is right around the corner, and I’m feeling so excited to have this semester over and done with! I’ve been incredibly busy, so it’s going to feel great to relax for five weeks with my family.
Anyway, today’s article is my winter mood board, and as you can see, I’m drawing a lot of inspiration from neutrals, whites, and feminine touches.
It may sound surprising to many people, but winter is actually one of my favorite seasons. It probably has to do with me being an introvert; I love to spend time indoors snuggled up with a blanket and a good movie. I also love Christmastime, because it means I get to spend time with my family and friends who I may not get to see often (for example, Eli). I decided to incorporate lots of scenic images of wintertime into this moodboard because it really sums up the energy I’m trying to emote this winter: placid, calm, and graceful.
Additionally, I included a few shots of sweaters and beanies that I found on google, because I’m really into neutral colors (like I said) and warm, fuzzy fabrics. A good chunk of my closet right now consists of pastel acrylic sweaters, beanies with pompoms, and warm, neutral-toned winter scarves. I like to wear clothes that can be easily layered and customized, because you never know what to predict weather-wise in New England! I also feel like neutrals match my current makeup style very well, which is mostly warm-toned smokey eyes and red lips. I’m hoping to get the “Proof is in the Pudding” palette by Beauty Bakerie in my winter Fab Fit Fun box, because I think that also ties into my current aesthetic well!
Lastly, I wanted to include a couple images of my favorite indoors activities: drinking tea and burning candles! No matter where I am and what I’m doing, I always have at least 4 candles burning throughout my apartment back home. There’s something about the comfortable glow combined with that Christmas-y smell (I burn winter candles year-round) that puts me in a great mood. Right now, my favorite candle is “Crisp Fall Night” by Yankee Candle, and I also love pine-scented tea light candles as well. As for tea, I’m proud to say that I am finally coming around to enjoying tea. I didn’t find it appealing for a while, but now I’m absolutely obsessed with Trader Joe’s Winter Wake Up tea, with a little milk and sugar added.
Anyway, I feel like this moodboard really sums up how my December is going: filled with warm beverages, sweet-smelling candles, and lots of knitting. I’m looking forward to spending the holidays with my family, and of course, I’m really excited about writing more content for blogmas! My next post is going to be one of my favorite things to write- a holiday gift guide! So keep your eyes out for that. 🙂
