Home for the Holidays

Whew! The first semester of my college career is finally over. I am incredibly thankful for UNC and wouldn't change my experience in Chapel Hill for a second, BUT I've been on break for one week thus far and honestly, there is nothing better than 12 straight hours of guilt-free sleep. No stress. No all-nighters. No clouds of unfinished work looming over me. I've been totally and completely liberated. While I'm still scouring the web for internships this summer, the grind is a bit different.

I'll admit that coming home was a bittersweet experience. At first, I was apprehensive about leaving campus, but the change of scenery has really allowed me to revel in the simpler aspects of life and reflect on the ways I have grown in the past year. Most importantly, I cannot express to y'all how much I have missed home-cooked Nigerian food!! Thanksgiving Break was the first time in 4 months that I had eaten fufu - and I nearly cried out of sheer happiness. Now, Christmas dinner is right around the corner and what you wear is just as important as what you eat. I enlisted the help of my photographer/friend Zainab and compiled this look to provide you guys with a little holiday inspo. Enjoy!


Although the exact skirt is sold out, I was able to find a similar one pictured above. What are you looking forward to this holiday season? Family, friends, and food? Gifts? Movies? Sweaters? Feel free to let me know your answers (and thoughts on this outfit) in the comments below! As always, be sure to keep up with me on social media: 

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!
