The velvet dress was sewn up for the Fabric Mart blog, and it is very timely for the festive season, so if you are a sewer, or like velvet, definitely check it out. I feel a bit like a female Oscar statue wearing it. (In other words, I love it!)
Onto some festive sparkle!
Day: Thursday, December 25, 2015.
Where: Christmas Dinner.
Outfit Details: Sweater, Boden; Skirt, J. Crew; Shoes, J. Crew; Necklace, Madewell (they still make it, find it here).
Anecdote of the Day: Does salt make any of you all swell up the way it does me? Maybe it's because I try really hard not to eat too many items that have it in overabundance, but when I do eat it in copious amounts, I feel it. I hate all those cooking show comments that say "there's not enough salt, wah wah wah." I'm always like, "dude, really, do you want to be pickled from the inside out?"
Day: Monday, December 7, 2015.
Where: Meetings and writing lesson plans. Boring.
Outfit Details: Sweater, Boden; Pants, Boden (Jessica Jogger here, out of stock right now, but pops back); Shoes, Boden; Necklace, Boden; Sunglasses, Ray-Ban (here, they are the Meteor style).
Anecdote of the Day: I take so long to write lesson plans. Secret--I never had to write lesson plans formally before this. I just had them written down so that the administrators could see them if they walked in the room. I did finally write them down for a long-term sub when I was set to have CW, but that was during a frenzy of nesting, so I hardly remember it being a pain (and I did the full year for him, too, lol). I think I may write too much, but my assistant principal seems to like it.
Day: Wednesday, December 23, 2015.
Where: Picking up the turkey from Whole Foods.
Outfit Details: Top, J. Crew; Cardigan, Ann Taylor; Skirt, Boden (Oona Skirt here, but this color has long since sold out, but the Tamara Top features the same fabric); Shoes, J. Crew.
Anecdote of the Day: The turkey has to be ordered in advance, it costs way too much money, but man, it's a good bird. I went in and heard people crowing that Whole Foods had sold out of the turkeys, so I felt good that I had ordered in advance, regardless of how silly my family thinks I am for doing so. :-)
Day: Wednesday, December 2, 2015.
Where: I don't remember! Maybe Winesday since it was a Wednesday? I know it was raining, lol.
Outfit Details: Top, J. Crew (here in stripe); Pants, J. Crew (no longer available in poly, but they have them in wool here); Coat, Boden (Zoe Coat here, review here); Scarf, J. Crew; Shoes, J. Crew.
Anecdote of the Day: Got nothing. It was raining. I was warm. :-)
Have a great day, everyone. Glad I have some time to get some ootds here. Now off to go visit some of my favorite blogs! :-)
