Good afternoon ladies!! It’s getting close to Christmas and it’s RUSH time! I don’t know about you guys, but we are still buying Christmas presents. This has got to be the slackest we have ever been about being prepared at Christmas. Honestly, it feels like it’s November and I still have a month to shop. When in reality, I have 3 days! Eeekkkk!!
Did I tell you girls about our tree and ornaments getting messed up this year? Oh what a mess we had, I won’t go into detail about how the tree was demolished along with some pretty unique and sentimental ornaments. Ornaments that my kids made when they were small, oh my gosh…it just upsets me to even write this out! Enough of that, as it stands right now, we have NO tree..none!
I couldn’t see going out and buying a new tree now when I can get one cheap after Christmas or even now on eBay. By the way, on eBay, I found some GORGEOUS Flok Christmas trees in the $140 – $400 range and they were beautiful (price depends on if you want unlit or prelit). So we are putting Christmas presents underneath the “garland” at this point. Boy, life never stops huh??!!
On a brighter note, I got to spend a little time with my favorite little girl this week and have her some this weekend. Brooklyn was in full ” I’m happy and I want to play on Snapchat” mode..so we took a couple of pics to share. She cracks me up so much, I just love the innocence, curiosity, and straight out honesty from a child. Not to mention how she explains things…haha! If you are a grandparent then you know what
To the Fashion…..
I went by The Loft this week and found a cute bell sleeve sweater and had to share this find! I LOVE this sweater, it’s very soft and comfortable, wears great- had no issues at all. It comes in two more colors, a fuschia pink and kind of a muted orange. They were all really cute, but I decided on the beige to wear with my leopard print booties. The jeans are high waisted jeggings from American Eagle Outfitters. These are some of my all-time favorite jeans. They have the distressed look, but no skin shows! These boots are not getting the light they deserve in this pic! I snagged these up a few weeks back from Sole Society and have fallen in love with them!
Old Navy Finds….
Barry and I had stopped off a week or so ago at Old Navy and did some shopping and I picked up this cute V-Neck Striped Sweater and White Mid-Rise Rockstar Skinny Jean from Old Navy. Decided to wear these gorgeous gold leaf earrings and Pierre Dumas Rimini Booties in Taupe. The heel on this bootie is about 1 3/4 inches. I wear these boots a lot and they are some of the most “wearable” boots I’ve had in a long time. I’m up and down stairs all day, so if I can wear a pair of boots all day and my feet not hurt.
Weekend Semi-Casual Style
I have the same American Eagle High Waisted Jeggings on with the Leopard Boots from Sole Society, but this time I paired it with my Lisa Rinna Twist Fron Top. This slightly sheer blouse twists in the front and it hangs low in the back. Comes with a tank and it rates a 4.3 out of 5 stars on QVC. I have two of these and I get complimented every time I wear it.
What I like about this blouse is it forgives! It’s flouncy enough to hide anything we want hidden. Plus, it’s a very chic and elegant piece that can be dressed up or go more casual, depending on where you are going.
I’m going to go spend some time with little Brooklyn. so you ladies have a great day! Before I hop off, some may ask me later about how I curl my hair. So I’m putting the link in right here on the tut0rial, How to get Loose Beach Waves With a Curling Wand. I think you will find getting those loose waves is really easy once you get used to wrapping it.
As always, you girls have a great day and weekend!! Stay safe and Be Blessed!!
