friday's fancies #44 - cookie exchange!

happy friday chickadees! i am sooo excited for the weekend (what's new?!) but this one is going to be even more fun because it involves friends, bloggers, holiday movies and COOKIES. i am hosting another cookie exchange and i decided this time i would introduce my best friends to my blogger friends! i am excited for them all to meet and to spend saturday afternoon watching christmas movies and eating cookies. i made my favorite- nerds and i can't wait to see what the girls bring over. we'll be packing up one big box to send overseas to a solider (one of my brother's friends who is stationed in Afghanistan). i'll be sure to share lots of photos + recipes next week (AND a few wishlists from some of my favorite bloggers).

movies + cookies call for another comfy, cozy outfit (yep- i live in clothes like this in the winter months). this one is inspired by cameron diaz's winter wardrobe in the holiday (every time i watch that movie i want to stock up on white sweaters!)::


[sweater $648, tee $34.50, cords $89.50, slippers $115, house of harlow necklace $70, throw $69]


what's your favorite christmas cookie + movie?!


xo,
jillian

  22. I feel cozy just looking at that amazing outfit! I've never seen the Holiday but I do bet that she looks pretty great in it. My fave xmas cookie is crinkle cookies (the chocolate ones rolled in powdered sugar - they remind me of my grandma). So sweet (literally!) of you guys to send cookies to the soldier. I love it! Happy weekend!

    I'm watching Elf right now, which is too cute for words. My all-time favorite holiday cookies are frosted soft sugar cookies--they're addictive!

  29. My grandma's gingerbread cookies are the perfect combo of spice & sweet. They're delicious.
