I woke up in the best mood Monday morning. It was one of those, “I am so happy to be alive” kind of moods. These moods are so special, and I felt like bursting out singing. As soon as I opened my eyes, I was engulfed in happiness. Generally, I am a pretty happy person most of the time, but today was just special. When you have a day like this, you know that nothing can spoil your mood. And then…And then, my sweet loving, handsome husband walked into work. I can see you rolling your eyes already and thinking, “what did he do now?” I was getting ready to leave and go home for the day when he walked over and put his hand on my stomach and grabbed at it. I looked up, and the look on my face must have said everything that I was thinking. “Isn’t that the cutest little tummy you have ever seen?” I could feel him trying to back peddle and get out of this somehow, but that wasn’t happening. LOL! It was a good thing that I was in a fantastic mood because I decided to let him live to see another day. Haha! And then I gave him a list of errands that needed to be run, including picking us up something for dinner. He did all of the errands without one complaint. Shucks, I’ll let him grab my belly again if he acts like that. Lol!!! This was the outfit that I was wearing today when the tummy incident happened. Yesterday, I styled a dressier look for a Holiday party, and today I wanted to show you how to dress for a casual Holiday party. These outfits would be great for Christmas or New Years because I am not adding “Santa” or “Rudolph” to my outfit. The tee-shirt that I have on is from Old Navy, and it has metallic threads running all through it. It gives off a wide variety of colors, almost like a peacock effect, and it looks festive. This top is very comfortable, and the metallic threading does not make it stiff or scratchy. This is a slim fit, and I am wearing a medium and still have plenty of room contrary to what Joe might have said. Haha! Go HERE to see the top and, it is on sale! I can’t believe how long I have had this necklace and never worn it. I never liked the thick cording that the dangles hung on, and I normally wear a longer necklace. Today, I finally I decided to wear it with this outfit and wouldn’t you know it, I love it. Lol! But, the problem is that it has already retired and is not available any longer. At least the Eileen square marble earrings and the Phoebe hot pink ring are still available. Lol! Be sure to shop for Christmas presents and pick a party with my name in it. Here is where you go to the website. The over the knee boot look is huge this year. I have ordered a couple in, but most of them made me look like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman, so I sent them back. This black suede pair by Franco Sarto is just the perfect height for me. I want a pair that is barely over the knee instead of the thigh high ones that are plentiful. It is almost impossible to guess how tall these boots are online so a trip to the store might be in your future if you like the look.
If you have fat calves like mine, then it would probably be wise to go and try them on anyway. Mine would probably be taller if I could get them pulled up all the way. Lol! The rest of my outfit consists of a pair of skinny jeans and a velvet blazer. Velvet is a huge trend this year and here a post where I wore this blazer last week. I have a question for you gurls. I started this blog with the hopes that I would be able to help women with their fashion struggles. Since you have been following my blog, is shopping getting easier for you? Has anyone noticed that you are dressing differently, and I hope for the better? I am not asking to get compliments on the blog; I just wondered if my mission in helping women was being fulfilled.
