On the 3rd Day, EXPRESS gives to you…
three $100 EXPRESS Gift Cards!

Y’all know I’m a sucker for a good monochromatic look {as seen here, here, and hey – here too}. I’ve actually been holding on to this grey midi for a bit, until I found the right top + shoes to compliment it perfectly. This is a great subtle look for the holidays. It may not be so in-your-face red + green, but the addition of lace + a touch of metallic, definitely gives it some validity for being ‘holiday-esk’. P.S. I now own this Express midi skirt in four colors, so I definitely recommend purchasing if you’re petite like me {remember I’m only 5’2} and are on the hunt for a true midi. No alterations needed!

Speaking of, how crazy is it that Christmas is literally 10 DAYS away!? Eeeeek, I’m so giddy + nervous all at the same time. I still have so much shopping + wrapping to do, but cannot wait to see the whole fam together since my parents are coming to FL for Christmas! It’s their first time back during the holidays in like seven years, so all the FL fam is pretty pumped.

If you’re like me and still have some last minute shopping to get done, here are a few ideas to check out – all under $50! Whoop whoop! Express has also put together a great gift line up for him + her you should definitely check out + enter below to win one of three $100 gift cards, part of #LICPChristmas! Good luck!
