It has been a crazy week and today is only Tuesday! All the last minute gifts to buy, finishing the wrapping (or in my case starting the wrapping) planning the Christmas meal, and figuring out when everyone can all go to Livingston to celebrate has been exhausting. It is like the old adage, “trying to wrangle cats.” Unfortunately, Joe and I are the cats that are the hardest to wrangle. Lol!We will have Christmas here in Virginia, then go to Tennessee and have Christmas there. Then we have to go back to Virginia to do the end of the year for the lumber company. It takes a lot of juggling to find a time when all of us can get together. It doesn’t matter that it is not on Christmas Day, I am just thrilled to see everyone. There have been some years when we didn’t get to go to Tennessee until sometime in January.
I love a fur vest!!! I don’t really like wearing coats unless I am going to be outside a lot. If I am just walking from the house to the car and from the car inside to work, then I don’t usually put on a coat. But, there are times when I like just a little bit of warmth and that is where the vest comes in. This vest is multi-colored and not solid like this one I wore the other day. I was looking back to when I first wore this vest on the blog (here) and I am amazed at the difference. I don’t know if is just me but, holy cow! You need to check out that post and tell me if I am crazy, but I think I look much younger. (not looking for compliments) I’m not sure why, if it is the color I am wearing, if it is the hairstyle, if it is getting better at taking pictures, or if it the Rodan and Fields. Either way, I’ll take it. Lol!
Can you see the short necklace is the Annie. This is the perfect necklace for layering. In the past, I would not have added a shorter necklace but I love adding more. Who knows, next year at this time I may be wearing 3 or 4 necklaces. Lol!
This pink necklace is pretty cool. It was a Plunder Posse for October and is no longer available. The necklace and a matching pair of earrings were only $25.00. Truthfully I am not always a fan of the Posse jewelry, but I did like this one. This month’s Posse, though, not so much. In fact, I will probably give it away. But that is the wonderful thing about the Posse, it makes a great gift. Just because it is my style, doesn’t mean it is not your style. I have become a big fan of the magnetic bracelets. Two of these, the Gage (green) and the Kylie (red) are two Christmas special bracelets. When they are sold out they may not be available again. The Ezra (black) is one that was a Halloween special. I wore mine all the time but I sold it at the craft fair in November. I was bummed because I couldn’t buy it back and I had been checking the resale groups to try and find it. Yesterday, I saw that they had made it available again until it sells out, I immediately went and bought TWO!!!Boot cut jeans were the choice for today. I knew I wanted to wear my burgundy/wine Issac Mizrahi wedge booties and I thought the boot cut jeans would look the best.
How do you like this sweater tunic? I LOVE the color! It is a really heavy knit sweater by Louis Dell Olio. I am not a huge fan of turtleneck sweaters because I have a round face. But the color won me over and I liked the overall effect. I am probably the only one who pays attention to the neckline, well besides you gurls now that I brought it to your attention. HahaThese boot cut jeans are the Maurice brand. I have been wearing so many skinny jeans that I thought I would try wearing my boot cut jeans. How do you feel about boot cut jeans?
I am now off to go to work. After that, it is off to the grocery store> We made out our menu for the Christmas dinner at work and I got elected to make Sweet Potato Crunch, Deviled Eggs, 7 Layer Salad, and Red Velvet Cake. I need to go buy the ingredients and I DREAD going to the store even though it is right next door to work. Lol! I literally only have to walk a few feet and I am there. Haha!
Anytime you would like to share my posts on Facebook or Twitter, I would appreciate that. It helps get my blog out to more people, and I am sure you just want to spread the entertaining sayings I have. Lol!
