Hello World!

First let me say that ya'll made me feel so much better about not having taken down my Christmas decorations yet!!!
Maybe I am not a big 'ole slacker after all.

I'm just a late bloomer!
My great friend gave me this fabulous fur vest for Christmas.
I have been dying to wear it and couldn't leave it hanging up in the closet one minute longer!
I paired it with some after Christmas sale finds.
Not too shabby if I do say so myself, nothing a slacker would wear!!
I am still deep into my obsession with the color blue,
so this sweater fits right into my world.
I decided to belt the sweater, but on second thought,
I might not do that again.
What do you think??
Have you been wearing your new Christmas clothes and after Christmas finds?
Or do you wait until just the right moment to bring something out to wear?

I love the blue, always catches my eye too! The booties are also sooo cute. Don't feel like a slacker, we did take all of the extra stuff down, but I can't part with my (albeit artificial) Christmas tree yet. Maybe this weekend?

I absolutely LUV this. I even saved the first picture onto my computer for inspiration. And because I'm yer new creeper. Just kidding. Maybe.

I like it with the belt, actually. It adds that little summin summin extra.

P.S. Yes'm! We have lake beaches not ocean beaches. I live right on Lake Superior...which is huuuuuuuuge, so it seems like an ocean to me!

from one slacker to another, I got the tree down today! yippee. Love that fur vest. I tried to buy a fur coat and my kids literally drug me out of the store saying I'd be the laughing stock at my company party. I thought I'd be really hip and NYC-like, but they said "um, no". haha. you look great in blue for sure!

Depending on what it is...I usually will wear casual stuff right away but evening items I'll have a tendency to hold on to it! Your friend has great taste I love that vest :D

Oh yes this look is fab! I love the faux fur vest (great gift!) and those trousers are great! I must admit to ripping down my Christmas decorations on the 26th- maybe too eager!

Adorable Brett! The fur vest is such a fun way to accessorize this sweater and those great plaid pants. I love your booties, are they recently from Marshalls?

I want those pants! I love this whole look. I think the belted sweater is great.

I wear things as soon as I buy them. I can't wait to wear them. No waiting for me.

xo,
