I decided to not be my typical self for Christmas this year: I didn’t find a way to incorporate green and red into an outfit. I KNOW- who am I?! Instead, I decided to focus on the red and mix in a dress that I got for my birthday back in August from Francesca’s Collections. It has elephants on it. In my favorite color. Mustard elephants. What else is there, guys? (Answer: kitties and bunnies – I really need to get my hands on those prints as well!) I’m pretty crazy about dresses like these because they’re so easily worn in all seasons just by adding a few layers, a pair of tights, and boots! My Father In Law asked, “Are those …elephants?” and I said, “Yes, they’re Christmas elephants!” ..because I’m so very clever and quick on my feet. ;] Obviously.
I’ve been working on my year in review post for 2011 all evening. For some reason these types of posts just take a ridiculous amount of time no matter how simple I try to make it on myself. I’ve been combing through posts and photos, tilting my head to the side, and asking, “What else happened in January??? Hmmmmm…” Nothing like this is ever simply put together for me, EVER. I’m such an over-thinker. I promise it will go up between tomorrow and over the weekend. I didn’t want to leave you all hanging though, so I hope a new outfit post will do until then. =) Also? Shoot me an email about sponsorship for January if you’re interested!! I have new and updated rates, but I haven’t found a moment to update the info here on the blog just yet. Well, I’ve fallen asleep a few times while trying to write this so I think it’s time for bed! =) Have a wonderful Friday!
PS: What’d you wear for your Christmas festivities? I’d love to see!
