Happy Christmas Eve

Dart Dj Holiday Party // smitten studioOnly one more sleep until Christmas! This year Rupe and I weren’t able to have a Christmas party at our house because of all the renovations, but oh how we made up for it by attending a whole lot of them. Of course Smilebooth was present at most of the soirees, which is always a hoot. At this one, my fellow girls in gold and black and I turned it into a dance booth to properly document our accidental coordinating outfits. Clearly Santa Rupe wouldn’t be left out.

Happy Christmas Eve!

Smitten Christmas Party

Well, having Smilebooth in our home was a big part of the fun that night. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the night and make sure you look after the jump to see me doing my best santa impersonation.
