Holiday Card Exchange

I love buying greeting cards. I like sending them and receiving them as well, but probably not as much as I enjoy shopping for them. Which is probably how I ended up ordering cards from both Minted and Paperless Post this year, on top of the two other boxes I scooped up during clearance sales at the end of last year.

Needless to say, I've got a lot of cards to mail out, but not very many people on my list, which is why I always invite you to join my holiday card exchange! Just drop me a quick email ( with your mailing address and I will reply with mine - that's it! I usually try to get my cards out by the second week of December, but I will keep sending throughout the month.

  3. Love that sweater! The way the knit changes on the arm is great :)
    I'm so bad with holiday cards, I rarely send them...haha. So cheap/lazy

  4. I'm dying over your fur scarf - that looks so cozy. And I totally need to get cracking on my card!

  11. So in love with this look! That scarf is perfection.

  12. Love love this look, such a great scarf. Looking stunning :) Mel

  13. Wow you look like a girl who is cold but also who's really classy.
    I particularly like the sweater and need something similar…
    I use to love eating and sending Christmas cards too !
    Now I no longer had a postal address and the mail here is, lets say practically non existing.

  14. I love stationary, but I'm far too lazy to go to the post office - which is why I have a stack of unused boxes of cards in my house. So silly. On a completely unrelated but still topical note, this outfit is perfect. If we lived nearer each other, I'd be borrowing everything, especially your clutch and sweater :)

  15. Great outfit! I especially love the purse!

  16. I love that you do the card exchange--it is so fun! I love the sweater!

  17. Loving that scarf, your sweater and boots Lydia. So pretty together.

  18. love these photos! you look so glamorous! love that awesome neckpiece!

  19. Love this black & white look on you, but that glorious!!!!

  20. very nice outfit..i like your bag and sunglasses

  21. I really need a scarf like this! So cute!

  22. Perfect bag and scarf <3

  23. You look so glam!! Your hair is so va-va-voom and that sweater is so cozy! But that clutch - I need it!! and I love your holiday card swap!!


  24. Love this neutral look and your clutch is adorable.


  25. Those coated jeans are perfection on you! I've been trying to justify a fur cowl and even though I can't think of one, after seeing it on you I am just going to go ahead and put it on my list!

  26. That scarf and those booties make this such a glam, but still cozy, look. I love the idea of a card exchange, but I'm always so behind on my cards!!

  27. Love your folder over clutch! It's a great color!

  28. I love sending & receiving Christmas cards as well. We are way too digital now, and have lost the art of writing letters. Great outfit!


  29. Aww the card exchange is such a great idea! :) Makes shopping for Christmas cards even more fun as well knowing you'll be sending them off to so many people! :)

    I like to turn all of the Christmas cards we receive into a little Christmas decoration by stringing them up around the house - it's such a lovely thing to do! :)

    I'd join the exchange if I was in the US! :)
