Christmas has always been one of my favorite holidays. Of course, everyone loves getting gifts, but it has always been the decorations that I loved. I used to put up a Christmas tree in EVERY room, including the bathrooms. Most would be store-bought trees, but I usually had at least one real tree. My daughter even counted all the “trees” that I had in the living room one year. There was around 20 or more trees of some type. Lol! As the years have gone by, my decorating for Christmas has gotten smaller. All of the children have moved out of our house, and I just don’t have the motivation to go all out. Getting all the stuff out of the storage building, deciding what to use, putting up the chosen items, and putting the rest back in storage, is a real pain. Then, of course you have to take it all back down, and put everything back in storage.I always leave my decorations up till New Years day. But, one year it started raining right after Christmas, and rained non stop for several weeks. The ground was so muddy to the storage building, that we left everything up waiting for the ground to dry out. By the end of January, my husband said he liked everything decorated, and to just leave it up. I think is was March before everything finally came down. HahahaBefore we get into this outfit, I just want to say, OMG!!! Jo-Lynne Shane, my blogging inspiration, just pinned this outfit of mine on Pinterest. Someone pinch me, just not real hard. Haha Okay, I bought this cute little dress/tunic at Ross’s this past weekend. I was not even looking for anything for myself, but who can pass up something this cute? The red tassel made it a little difficult in trying to find a necklace to wear, however, I like the long tassel necklace that I got at Cato’s. I think the two tassels just play off of each other. Here is a similar dress.I have on my Renegade bracelet from Stella & Dot, along with a crocheted cuff bracelet. Blessed is written on the cuff, and it also has leather trim.I have on a pair of dark brown tights and a pair of chunky heel boots. The boots are a pair I bought at TJ Maxx years ago. The inside of these boots are completely fur-lined, even on the bottom. Mine says Made in Italy, but here is a pair from Talbots.I brought out my red Dooney & Bourke purse for this outfit. I liked how well it looked with the red in the dress and tassel. I wish I could find a purse I think is similar for you gurls, cause I really like this purse. Maybe one day I’ll find one.A couple of you sent me photos, so that I can do a post featuring the “gurls”. If you haven’t sent a photo yet, email me one to: firstname.lastname@example.org I’ll try to do the post in January, so that gives you a few days to have a picture taken.As a child my sister and I had an album that we played over and over at Christmas. Our favorite song was, The Day Before The Night Before Christmas.
Don’t judge me, I was young. Lol!
