Hooray for Fridays and double-hooray for a short week!

Style & Pepper has been officially “closed” since before Christmas, and I have to say that the restoration and joy I’ve gotten from taking an extended period of time off has been a serious blessing… So important to reflect and plan for exciting things to come, and the holidays have been the perfect time for that this year.

Speaking of holidays… They’re not over at Casa de Pepper!  We’re keeping the celebratory season going by hosting 75+ people in our tiny apartment for our annual Epiphany Party tomorrow*, and the past 48 hours have been nothing but cooking and prepping for a day that I’ve looked forward to for the entire past year.  It’s one of the ways that G and I like to keep our space feeling like a place to love, and has become such a fun and festive tradition to honor the end of the advent season.

The outfit in today’s post is from Christmas Eve when we were in Arizona, and while the current view out my window is obstructed by a thick coating of snow, I’m letting the desert-weather memories warm my numb little toes.

See below for the rest of the look, and I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

*Epiphany is technically on the 6th of January each year (the 12th day of Christmas!), but we like to hold our party on a Saturday, so tomorrow it is! :)

    So pretty- I love the glitzy/casual contrast of the luxe material on the skirt and the casual turtleneck. And that clutch wants to be my new best friend, I can tell :) Hope life is treating you well!
