my outfit: it works.
This was my Christmas Eve day outfit. Yes, I'm behind on posting outfits. We went to my brother in laws for the day where I wanted something stylish but comfy. It was cousin-heaven with my kids and my nieces ripping open gifts and running around like wild animals. And my sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws and husband and I always laugh a lot and drink a lot. It was a super fun day.
You can't really tell, but this is a new VELVET blazer that I snagged at Gap recently for like $20 (it's still a little pricey online, but check your local store). Sometimes there sales are unreal. And this was one of those times. I wish you could get a better feel for the velvet in these photos, but alas, it just looks like a black blazer.
Oh and that gorgeous teal handbag peeking out there!?!? My husband gifted it to me for Christmas. It's a gorgeous chain-handled Kate Spade - one that I had been eyeing in Vegas and then found lurking under the Christmas tree. That boy. He's good. He also got me a really cool set of watercolor paints... I'm no artiste but I have had fun experimenting with them. It's one of my goals to embrace my creativity for 2012. Remember?
