The Holidays + The New Year

I hope everyone had a great holiday, especially with both Christmas and the New Year landing over the weekend, giving us all over here a much needed break on two consecutive Mondays. :)

Here's what I wore to my company's holiday party this year, which is the velvet Tobi dress as mentioned here over three (!) years ago that I never got a chance to wore. (Wow I look so much younger pre-mommy). As is with all things in fashion, velvet has become trendy again. It's a very pretty purple in person but looks super dark, almost black, in photos. As you can see, my hair is fading but I don't want to do any more damage to it and plan to let it grow out or if I hate how it's coming along, I may try balyage as commenter Annie suggested to blend it in more with my natural color by way of an ombre.

Dress: Tobi Soft Whispers Velour Dress. Tights: H&M Opaque tights. Booties: Christian Louboutin Bootylili Ankle Boot. Boots: Sam Edelman (old but similar here). Coat: Parajumpers Selma Fur Trim Parka in XXS (on sale now!). 
I opted to wear knee high boots to keep warm along with my new Parajumpers Selma Fur Trim Down Parka for the commute to work but I DO have to say that I have just realized now that it really isn't warm enough for the 30 degree weather here and I will unfortunately have to purchase some more Canada Goose ones to compare because I'm sick of feeling cold.

To celebrate Christmas, I went to my sister's for a family dinner and then a 1AM Christmas concert by Leo Ku at the Mohegan Sun!

Me and baby A! She is clearly more of a hat person than I am <3
It was super interesting to note that it has been many years since I've gone and this time, I actually felt less tired than I did over five years ago, which is probably thanks to having a baby who keeps me up every night now.

It's probably about 2:30AM in this pic. A and I went with another couple and it was fun but super tiring. 
I didn't go out to celebrate the new year and instead opted to stay at home with just A and baby A, which is probably what we will be doing for the foreseeable future. I did, however, have a good time at home spent playing video games, catching up on home organization, and snuggling with baby A.
