Autumn Garden

Autumn Garden

How’s everybody’s holiday? I hope you all had a lovely Christmas wherever you are and whatever you did. Our Christmas was spend with family and friends. Most of the morning was spent cooking Christmas dinner. We fancied being a little extravagant and so had some Asian style spaghetti to supplement the Roasted pork as well as the required beef spring rolls, stuffing, vegetable soap and apple and pecan pies. It was delicious and the left-overs were delicious again yesterday and with a few additions, will be again today I imagine! We’ve watched quite a bit of television. Lots of Christmas movies on Netflix. 

In today’s look, I’m featuring this beautiful Autumn garden dress from Karina. For reference, I’m 5’2″, 105lbs. I got the XS. This dress fits like a dream if you follow the size information. The color is true to the photograph. This dress is super comfortable! I love the stretchy material. This dress is a perfect for fall or winter! I love the details. It doesn’t need to expose lots of flesh, its just so classy! Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful week!

    I spent Christmas day coking as well and Christmas for me always is just family. We ate Christmas food for days as well, no cooking extras and just watching Christmas movies till very late. What you have cooked sounds super delicious, would love to try it. This dress looks so gorgeous on you.
