This is what I wore yesterday, for Christmas dinner at TGI Friday’s (yeah no family dinner this year, burgers are festive right? lol). My holiday season has been wonderful so far. My husband and I are doing something I little different this year. We are celebrating the twelve days of Christmas instead of just the one day. I like this way much better, we having been trying to come up with our own little holiday tradition and I think this is it! Long winter celebrations go way back in human history, one day just never seemed right to me.
What about you guys? What are your favorite holidays and how do YOU celebrate? Any quirky personal traditions??
Sorry guys and dolls, I know I’ve been very MIA here. Between moving, being sick, and some other things going on in my life right now, I’ve been a little uninspired, fatigued, and crazy busy. Things will settle down very soon and I will start posting much more regularly 🙂
Also, I’ve started another blog (but will not neglect this one, promise!) MyLifeMyPhotos365.wordpress.com where I am honing my photography skills and taking photos everyday for 365 days. What a challenge!
Until then I wish you all extremely Happy Holidays and my hope is that this new year will be your best year yet! Darlings, this is only the beginning! There are always better things to come.
With all that said I’ll leave you with my new favorite 8track.com mix: Listen to French Songs Like a Boss
First off, let me say that I am really really diggin the Lauren Conrand line at Kohls lately. It’s all I’ve been buying it seems. BUT (here it comes!) their sizing SUCKS. Big Ones. I ordered this dress along with another one, same brand, same size, I believe even the same collection and this one fits. The other is about 3 sizes too big. *headdesk* really?? Oh well, gonna return it. Too bad it was cute.
It didn’t hit me til later in the day that this dress reminds me of the dress Julia Roberts made famous in Pretty Woman. Oh well, I’m not up on my chick flicks. Loving the black and brown trend too.
Earrings- Simply Vera Wang/Kohls
Can you tell I shop a lot at Kohls?
Most awesome fleece-lined help me survive a northern winter tights- TJ Maxx
This is me right before the Black Friday shopping begins, which apparently this year, is at midnight. Thanks a lot Macys! I can’t complain though, I’d rather stay up til midnight than get up at 3AM any day!! And a bonus this year is I’ll only be doing my own shopping! I’ve been going to Black Friday openings as long as I can remember but I’ve always ended up standing in line in the cold for hours (!) for someone else’s, mostly relatives’, game consoles, tvs, games, whatever. This year, however, I’ll only be shopping for myself and I’m going to enjoy every minute of it. Especially since these stores are now within walking distance (yes!!) so I don’t have to make my usual 45 minute drive.
I love this striped cardigan I scored at TJ Maxx last season, very French I think. The jeans are actually crops but with the boots make a good wardrobe-extending cheat 🙂
The scarf is from Send the Trend, a monthly subscription type accessory place that I tried through Groupon. I wasn’t thoroughly impressed overall but the merchandise is cute and very trendy.
Also, I threw an ArM PaRty but these are the only pieces of jewelry that showed up.
So did you do the whole Black Friday thing? What did you get? Is it a tradition at your house? Spill!!
