It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

posted on: Tuesday, December 6, 2011

This is the outfit I wore to the Twas The Night shopping event last week. Normally when I go to events I use it as an excuse to shop for a new outfit, usually a new dress, but I'm on a tight budget right now so I had to think of another plan. I recently wore this dress to the Jalu sale a month or so ago, but really wanted to wear it again, so I decided to pile on some layers overtop to disguise it as a skirt! 

I seriously can't even believe it's December already! JP and I started decorating our house and Christmas tree over the weekend. I love pulling out all of my ornaments each year and finding the perfect spot on the tree for them. My mom's tradition has always been to put a new ornament in our stocking each year, so by the time I moved out on my own I had enough unique ornaments to adorn my own tree! Each ornament sparks a special Christmas memories for me. I could stare at them for hours and reminisce. 

Have you noticed my new clutch? I received it from the Lovely Hina of Nuage 9 and just adore it! It's handwoven with white, gold and black pieces of leather. Nuage 9 not only has amazing clutches, but also has a new collection of wool hats! If you would like to win a wool hat, enter my giveaway here
