HAPPY HOLIDAYS! I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas and/or Boxing Day! When I think about this particular holiday, I always imagine snow that would allow me to build snowmen or make snow angels, the aroma of a real pine tree sitting in the living room, kids caroling door to door with multiple layers of clothing, the thrill of making gingerbread houses/men, singing along to Christmas music on the radio, going insane trying to find gifts for everyone, kissing underneath the mistletoe and good ole St. Nick himself! Too bad most of that is just a figment of my imagination... I had to turn on the air conditioning on Christmas Day! Anyways, I wanted to visit this alluring hotel for some time and I finally made it there! The intricate details of the architecture, the infamous rotunda and ghosts (*eep!*) all add to it's unexplainable charm. When Jonathan and I arrived at the hotel, we went on a grand adventure in search for stairwells or hallways that would grant us access to certain locations. When we finally figured out how to navigate the area, there was not a single location that was dull - this place is absolutely breathtaking! Every corner you turn is another opportunity for pictures and another opportunity to gaze at the magnificent work of art. As for my outfit, I decided to wear this equally amazing lace dress from OASAP. I believe lace exemplifies lust and caution with a hint of mystery. The natural creme color of this dress exudes a sense of innocence which makes a perfect contradiction! To purchase this dress, visit: OASAP. The backdrop worked in coherence with this dress and I will definitely visit the Mission Inn again!
