The Sunday 7: Advent Calander Season + What’s in My Cart

Gearing up for the holidays with all things merry and bright.

14 November 2021 -

It’s my favorite time of year…. 

with Thanksgiving right around the corner and Christmas close behind it, we’re getting ready for the holidays with gift guides, advent calendars, and a few exciting features on McGee & Co. This week, we’ve done some more Netflix filming, site visits, and of course, all the design reviews and concept planning meetings. Here are a few things I’m excited about: 

No. 1: We’re remodeling an airstream!  

This is definitely a project first for us, but we’re renovating an airstream for the Netflix show, and this week we got to see it for the first time! 

No. 2. Fall filming

Went up Tibble Fork Canyon to film for Netflix and remembered I don’t love the cold, but this location is stunning and I cannot wait to see this project come together. Here are a few of the things I was wearing – so glad I brought layers.

No. 3. New McGee & Co. artist feature

I love when we get to collaborate with artists at McGee & Co., and in our latest collection, we were lucky to share works from Amy Lauren and Kaleen Cameron. I truly believe that art is an investment in your home, and it completes a space like nothing else. My favorite thing about our McGee & Co. pieces is the attention to detail in everything from the high-quality printing to the framing, it makes such a big difference. 

No. 4: Thanksgiving perfect dresses 

When it comes to the perfect Thanksgiving outfit, you can’t go wrong with a flowy dress that looks pretty but still feels comfortable after eating all of the things. Here are some I’m eyeing for this year:  

No. 5: Swooning over these luxe advent calendars

I love a luxe advent calendar when December hits. There’s just nothing better than opening a little surprise every day, and who said the kids should have all the fun? It’s a great way to try new skincare and beauty lines, indulge in pretty jewelry, or fragrance! Plus, they make great gifts for someone you really want to spoil on your list (even if it’s yourself!)

No. 6: My latest favorite cookie recipe  

We shared a cookie recipe in the catalogue that will definitely be in heavy rotation now that we’re entering the entertaining season. I loved seeing the mentions of those who tried it on Instagram! Speaking of bakers, my friend Courtney had a launch party last week for her new cookbook, and I can’t wait to try every recipe.

No. 7: Our annual pie & soup night 

One of our favorite holiday traditions is our annual pie & soup night. This week, our team shot some photos of it for the first time, and I can’t wait to share more soon! Here’s what I wore. Happy Week! XO-Shea
