They've Arrived...

Dear Holiday Party Season,

I suppose, we are friends. I mean, we have a bit of a love/hate relationship but overall, I enjoy you. I love planning my looks and cultivating my style. I hate deciphering your dress codes and needing to find ways to save myself from awkward conversations.

That being said, this year, I will try to let go some and enjoy you. My style has become simpler so ideally you should be simpler. My body is a bit curvier than year's past so that throws me a learning curve (get it?). I get tired by 11 but I really think I have this. 

So, my dear sweet cheerful friend, I embrace you this year with all your contrived conversations, "festive causal professional" dress code,  and the blister producing heels. Cheers to us finally making peace.

Thanks for the free champagne,

Rachael
