Holiday cards are stressful. At least for me. Getting everyone dressed and ready, dealing with a toddler who didn’t want to wear her bow, shoes, or any of the beautiful accessories I picked out from Janie + Jack, and then trying to get a 4 month old and 2 year old to smile on cue. Oh, and Dallas had a heatwave so it was 98 degrees. Let’s just say, I needed a good cry sesh and a glass of wine afterwards. However, as my mom said, these are the moments you will look back on and smile. I know she is right but my lord, why do they need to be so difficult?
The one thing I was beyond grateful that I did was to buy the girls matching dresses weeks in advance. I turned to one of my favorite shops, Janie + Jack. Knowing that their outfits were decided on and would look so cute gave me such peace of mind leading up to the photoshoot. When I was looking for their outfits I wanted them to be similar, beautiful, and wearable. Wearable you might ask? Well, there are a lot of holiday parties coming up and I wanted something that Eleanor could look really cute in, be able to enjoy running around and playing with her friends, and me not being stressed out the entire time she was about to ruin a $$$ outfit. I wanted the outfit to look $$$, but not be $$$.
This is where my love of Janie + Jack comes in. I have purchased their items non-stop since finding out I was pregnant with Eleanor in 2017. They are one of my go-to shops. Their items are of amazing quality and look really expensive without breaking the bank account. I want items that last, especially now that I have a second girl and without a doubt, their items last. I have so many pieces that have already been passed down to Eloise and they look brand new. I can’t sing their praises enough!
This year, their holiday line knocked it out of the park. Tartans, velvet, matching masks (hello 2020), hats, plaids, they really seemed to capture everything you want in your holiday outfits. Being a longtime fan, I truly can’t recommend taking a look at what they have on their website right now! It is Parisian chic! Which y’all know I love
