Discovering New to Me Brands

Sanctuary Northern Sweater

One of the best parts about shopping at boutiques and other local stores is finding new brands. During a shopping excursion with my mom, I found this Sanctuary sweater at one of our favorite stores in the city. I think I was guilty of wearing it multiple days in one week.Sanctuary Northern SweaterSanctuary Northern Sweater Sanctuary Northern Sweater Sanctuary Northern SweaterLOFT Riding Boots Lululemon Wunder Under Pants Danielle Nicole Lexi Satchel Sanctuary Northern SweaterDanielle Nicole Lexi Satchel

If you haven’t shopped Sanctuary yet, I highly recommend this sweater. It’s so comfy. I can’t wait to try other items from there! I’d love to know if there are any other brands that you’ve recently discovered that I should check out.

On another note, we’ve finally made it Christmas week! Sometimes I almost love the build up or the days leading up to Christmas better than the actual day. I’m always bummed once it’s over. Nonetheless, I’m still very excited to do some of my favorite traditions, like go to mass on Christmas Eve and have brunch on Christmas morning. I’m also excited to partake in some new holiday activities. This is the first year that I’m working in an office (#adulting), and we’re doing an office Secret Santa. I’m using it as a reason to break out the ugly Christmas sweater again!
