No Repeats, Day 13
After celebrating nearly non-stop for the past 10 days, I think we're just about finished with Christmas celebrations here. As much as I love the holidays, and as bummed as I always get in January when my social calendar goes back to being more sporadically filled in, I'm ready for a little break from all the celebrations. When I woke up this morning, our living room looked like Christmas had thrown up all over it. There was wrapping paper, ribbon, tissue paper and boxes strewn all over the place, not to mention the remnants of Jude's new toys (we buy him things that are easy to destroy for presents, since it's one of his favorite things to do). All of that said, I had a great holiday weekend. How about you?
Tonight, Fella and I had dinner downtown with his parents and some family friends at one of my favorite restaurants, the Grand Lux Cafe. I always feel like a scrub wearing jeans downtown, so I went with a casual dress with leggings instead. It was snowing today and the sidewalks are pretty slushy, so I had to wear my snow boots, but I think it worked since the outfit was fairly casual. I'm really getting to like the dress, leggings and boots combo. How have I not owned leggings until recently? Also note new additions to my jewelry collection. The necklace was a present from Fella, and the watch a gift from his parents.
Like the shirt I posted on Friday, this dress is kind of a closet orphan. I bought this dress for a dinner party in 2008, and haven't worn it since. It's pretty cute, very comfy and a great color, but I'm at a loss for ways to style it. Thoughts, Stylenation?
