December is the best month of the year. Hands down. I love everything about it—everyone's relaxed, it's OK to drink wine every day of the week, and there are more than enough excuses to get all dolled up. Fun. I even love the Christmas beetles!
What's even better, is you can shop for yourself and excuse it as your present-to-self. It's been a big year. You deserve it. For the last month of the year (and on the first day of summer), I'm treating myself with pieces I'll wear during the end of year break. The perfect affordable beach bag, the coolest party dress I've ever seen, and the earrings I didn't know I'd been searching for my whole life.
My SO is into fashion, but he's into me saving my money even more, so you can imagine my delight when we walked past Bassike in Balmain the other day and he stopped and said I needed this shirt. Any excuse will do!
