Wearing: Orange + Taupe

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Banana Republic skirt and cable sweater
Anthro Shine Through shirt 
J.Crew patent belt
AE watch
LOFT shades
Everything about this season seems compressed.
Hurry...get the Christmas presents picked out...quickly...and wait in line to pay.
Rush...wrap the presents...and fast...run to the store to buy more tape.
Quick...hurry home to bake the cookies and send the cards...and rush off to the post office.

On yet another quick run to the store, I bought husbie a new bottle of body wash on which the label touted SMELLS LIKE WILDERNESS, OUTDOORS and FREEDOM...
and I thought, They really need a body wash that says, SMELLS LIKE FOLDED LAUNDRY, FRESH COOKIES and WRAPPED PRESENTS...now that would sell!
The preparations can be so intense, which is why I'm really looking forward to Christmas day when it totally acceptable and even expected that a girl will do nothing but eat and spend time with all her favorite people.
So, how 'bout you?  Are done with all your Christmas preparations?  


  1. I am in love with that orange sweater :) I can't believe how sunny it still is where you live. I must come over to that place soon! I am so tired of the cold and rain here, haha ^^ x

  2. I love that sweater and the shades! Adorable! And i love your blog. Super cute and cool. Im excited to follow along and see all your creations. I'd be honored if you'd follow me back! I'm a fashion blogger in training. Im only 15, but i've got style! Haha. Thanks!

  3. Lovely as always. I've been looking for shoes like that for a while. Where are yours from?

  4. orange,yes,new trendy color! you are beautiful!

  5. We'll love to see this look on Shupalook.com ;)

  6. I totally agree with you about feeling rushed about doing everything before xmas. You look so classy and pretty in the orange sweater. Those shoes are gorgeous .

  7. Love the bright orange! It makes everything seem warm and sunny. You could always get the Philosophy body wash that smells like cookies? maybe that will help! :)


  8. Do you ever feel like the Shine-Through Button Up makes every sweater better? :) Love your outfit - and no, I'm not done with Christmas prep. This week is crunch-time for me.

  9. Great color on you! I'm not done with Christmas preparations, but I keep thinking I am. So not helpful!

  10. Ok. So I just followed you back through your comment and spent the last hour browsing through all your things. You are amazing! And I feel awesome having someone "famous" comment on my blog. Can I put in my byline - even designers read my blog? :) Anyway - when I'm a little skinnier - ok. a lot skinnier - I'm going to start ordering your amazing dresses. They look awesome. Just not quite right for my figure at this exact moment.

    Love your things, Kristen @ www.alittlesomethingforme.com
