Merry Christmas

Happy Thursday to you all.
I did a little hair chopping the other day!
I took 5 inches off.
  I am still not sure if I like it or not. 
 I kind of feel naked!
Can you say short, messy hair?? 
 Hopefully, I will be able to maintain the look
 without the help of my stylist.
As far as my outfit...
I love leopard and red together. 
 I think brown is an excellent compliment color for the whole look.
I threw in black booties for some contrast.

This will be my last post until January.
A family emergency has come up and I need to focus on that right now.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas and look forward to reuniting with you in January!

Windowpane

Happy Monday.
11 more days until Christmas.
Are you ready yet?
I'll admit that I am doing pretty well
 as far as preparing for Christmas. 
 I am not stressed or hurried as of yet either. 
 I think I will count my blessings for that!
 I am wearing a favorite pattern of mine today. 
 Windowpane. 
 It is so versatile
 and lends itself to be dressed up or just go casual.
I paired it pink and marsala 
(as they are calling this color for 2015). 
 I really like these rich colors together. 
 The ruffled scarf dresses up the outfit just a bit
 and the brown boots
 give great contrast to the dark colors.

Are you a fan of the windowpane pattern?

Awkward and Awesome Friday

Merry Christmas Ya'll.
I hope your December has been nothing but awesome so far!
Awkward:
  • Mistaking wax paper for parchment paper and not realizing it until your oven starts smoking.
  • Putting on a sweater for the first time this winter and noticing that moths must have had it for their lunch since the last time you wore it.
  • Coming down with a nasty cold that you never saw coming.
  • When someone makes a comment that sounds complimentary, but after thinking about it, you realize it wasn't a compliment at all.
  • Getting Braces!!
 
 Awesome:
  • Getting Braces.
  • Christmas parties!
  • My friends arranging for a cleaning lady to come to my house for a day!!!
  • Holiday cooking.
  • Having an 80's movie marathon with your 20something's and getting to explain all about back in the day....
 
Well, I don't think you get more festive than this outfit! 
 Sequins, jewels, gold,
 what more could a girly girl ask for? 
 Now that I have a mouth full of metal,
 I have to work on a new smile for the blog.
  Be patient with my funny faces while I try to work this out.

I would love to hear about your awkward or awesome moments this week.

Golden


It's Wednesday!
It's Dec. 10th.
Are you in the Christmas Spirit yet?
I am feeling very Christmassy in this gold sweater!  
It just exudes holiday cheer, don't you think?
I added little touches of turquoise for some fun.
Throw in some pink on top of it all
 and
 you have a festive mix of colors.  

Are you pulling out your festive clothes yet?
What are you waiting for???

Black Watch

Happy Monday!
I hope everyone had a nice weekend.
I was down with a nasty cold, but am on the mend.
As you know plaid is having a moment right now. 
 One of my favorite versions is black watch plaid.
I kept the top portion of this outfit pretty plain. 
 I wanted my pants to be the focus.
I added the emerald green necklace to
 pick up the green in the pants. 
 Threw on some black booties and was out the door.

Do you have a favorite "color" plaid?
