It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

This week we put up our Christmas tree. My husband and I have been having a Christmas tree battle since we met...almost ten years ago. He likes real trees...and I like fake. I hate the smell of real trees (yuck!), hate the mess (needles and sap!), and hate flimsy branches. This year I talked him in to a fake tree! First off we don't have a lot of room for a tree, so we needed something skinny...and secondly, most of our ornaments are so heavy. In the past I remember two different years our trees literally fell over because they couldn't handle our ornaments! 

Behold our tree! Cute right?

Are you all ready for the holidays? Today I officially finished all of my holiday shopping. I'm so very proud of myself. The last few years I only finished up the week of Christmas...and I wasn't going to let that happen again. I can't take the stress of it all. If any of you need any shopping tips or would like to see more gift guides please let me know! I feel like I have to shop for the most difficult people I'm pretty good at finding the right kind of gift.

It isn't Christmas without my Grandma's ugly singing angel on top of my tree.

dress: Everly purchased at Pema NY/sweater: gift/tights: c/o Silkies/booties: Silence + Noise

So those of you that know me (or read my blog regularly) know that I'm 100% addicted to legwear. I probably have about 40 pairs of tights...and it's not nearly enough. My friends at Silkies reached out to me and sent over a few pairs this week. The tights that I'm wearing in these photos is probably one of my favorites that they sent me. If you haven't checked out their site yet, stop on by. They have so many great's almost a good way!

Happy holidays everyone!!!

On a day like today you won't fit me sitting around in sweats...or even jeans...I'm actually wearing a look that is very close to the look I have posted above. To me there is nothing more comfortable (and chic!) than a dress, tights, and tall boots.

100 Years of Beauty in 1 Minute

I had to share this with all of you, because it is beyond awesome! Every decade seems to have its own signature look...and Cut proved this by putting together a video showing a model getting her hair and makeup done to represent each decade.

Which of these looks is your favorite? I have to say, I'm all about 1960!

Take Two...

scarf: gift/shirt: H&M/skirt: Brooklyn Industries/tights: H&M/booties: Silence + Noise available at Urban Outfitters

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving, and hopefully you're enjoying the day off and relaxing...I know I am. I was all set to do a little photoshoot outside today, but then plans changed. As soon as we went outside it was way colder than I thought it was going to be, and insanely windy. If you thought I was going to take my winter coat off for a little outfit shoot, you have got to be kidding me! So photos inside our apartment will have to do (and I seriously hate doing indoor you can see from my face in that first photo). 

Oh well...

I really wanted to show off this adorable skirt I picked up at Brooklyn Industries about a month or so ago. Isn't it just darling? Not only are the straps removable, but it also has pockets! Instant love. 

I realized that I need to get more scarves in my collection (and start wearing the ones I have more often). If you are in need of some scarf inspiration I suggest checking out this YouTube video by Wendy's Look Book. Here she shows you 25 ways to wear a scarf in 4.5 minutes. It's an old video...but one of my favorites! Simply brilliant.

I hope you all have a fantastic Friday!!!

Okay, I have a confession...I'm 100% addicted to E!'s "House of DVF". In my mind Diane von Furstenberg can do no wrong, but the girls who are on the show trying to earn the title of DVF's Brand Ambassador can't seem to do much right. Constant challenges, lots of drama, and Diane's words of wisdom. I just can't get enough.

Have you all been watching? Who do you think is going to win over DVF and get this dream job? Currently, I think I'm rooting for Brittany. But my favorites seem to change week to week.

What I want to know is why didn't Diane reach out to me for the job? *Sigh*
