Puffer Coat: Ralph Lauren (sale) | Leggings: Hue | Beanie: Soft Faux Fur Pom | Socks: Wool (similar)

How adorable is this faux fur trim quilted puffer coat. As soon as I laid my eyes on this Ralph Lauren puffer coat, I knew it was the one. I think I fell more in love with the color and the fact that it was Ralph Lauren which can be a timeless piece for many travel winter days to come. This Texas gal did not come prepared to Boston so we made a pit stop to Macys to get some layers on. I haven’t really been a puffer coat fan but lately, I have had my eye on some darling ones like this one in green too. & let me tell you, this Ralph Lauren coat saved my life walking all over Boston and accomplishing the Freedom Trail. Without this puffer coat, I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed Boston as much as I did. I went with such a timeless Khaki color instead of the plain black. The price tag is what really caught my eye if I am going to be honest. Coats can get really expensive, especially when it is during coat season. I saw puffers from all sorts of price ranges but what I really payed attention to was the detail on the coat. I did not want a shiny puffer and one that had a faux hat was a bonus. The price was half off and I couldn’t resist.

I wore this puffer during ice skating at Frog Pond at the beginning of the Freedom Trail. This was one of the activities I had to do in Boston, and I am so glad we did! It was such a blast. Tuesday’s post is dedicated for a recap of Boston and all the activities on our itinerary. Anyway, thanks for stopping by Buttercups! Hope you have a fabulous Monday.

You can find these fun pjs at Target! We thought we would just wear the tops for our Christmas photos. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! Remembering the real reason we celebrate Christmas this year is my saviors birth. Who later died and rose again for me and you. What a great gift to celebrate today.

Merry Christmas Eve Buttercups! I hope you enjoy these last minute Raad Christmas family photos we put together. I always love love love when my family gets in front of the camera and it’s just not me. Christmas sweaters were a must for this years holidays. I need to print some of these out and add to my 2015 Christmas card collection. It was such a great Christmas card season this year getting Dede Raad Photography photos all over those cards! What a blessing this year!

So I would like to wish from my family to yours, a very special Christmas. I am so excited to pass out gifts today. It is truly my favorite part. My moms huge HUGE Arab side of the family always has a nice party and I look forward to it every year. Santa (usually a family member) always makes an appearance so keep an eye out for Instagram.

Merry Christmas Eve! Check back tomorrow for more one more set of Christmas family photos.

This tan poncho is perfect for adding layers to your wardrobe. I also found this tan poncho here that is so darling and does not have the slit. If you have been checking in on this website, you know I have been craving over winter lights. Since it is still around 100 degrees in Houston, winter style can be a challenge but not with this poncho. Adding layers is so much fun and makes it looks like you really notched up your style. I added some white flats and a tan color bag and here is my look of the day.

Thanks for stopping by Buttercups. I hope you all are having a stress free  Christmas Eve Eve. We just got back from our trip and I can’t wait to share our Boston highlights in a later post. Today we will be hanging out with family and tonight will be hosting our annual Family Fun Day. Every year Ted and I plan an outing with both sides of the younger cousins. I will be taking off Christmas Day, just a heads up.
