Every time a bell rings

 My Christmas Eve Dress….

Here is how I turned my short hair into an updo….

Dress - Top Shop
Heels - Newport News
Headband - vintage
Earrings - H&M

Well, I worked all day non stop to prepare a table of appetizers that were fresh out of pinterest posts…

My daughter and her friend did a cheer and gymnastics show for us...

And Ready for Santa….
Notice how we leave fruit and a festive drink instead of cookies and milk…
We like to offer something different for Santa...

Rock Steady

 My outfit going out with girlfriends on Tuesday night….

Inspired by this look from Shoedazzle:

So I had a mustard top I was going to wear but I must have decided to give it away as I couldn't find it in my closet. So decided to go with this metallic top and add the mustard via the purse instead….

Blazer - part of a Tahari Suit
Top - J Crew
Pants - Rock Republic
Purse - Charming Charlie
Necklace - Shoedazzle
Heels - Aldo

The whole family woke up not feeling great. I was able to drop off the kids at my parents house mid day and hit the grocery store for the Xmas gathering then started cooking as soon as I got home. My friend came over a bit earlier and we went and got our nails done before going out…

A season to shine

The inspiration for this outfit was from a look at Urban Outfitters:
I changed up the colors of the top as my leather top is burgundy….

So here is the story with this outfit…
I initially wore this and took these photos last Thursday as my husband and I had planned to go on a date night. But as his work has been crazy lately he got a call and had to stay at work and we cancelled our date…
I wore the outfit again this Monday night when we finally got to go on our date….

 But last week this was the day I had gotten my new hair cut….

Top - Nordstrom's
Coat - Bebe
Purse - Anthropologie
Necklace - Bauble Bar
Pants - Forever 21
Heels - Rock Republic (Kohl's)

HOPE YOU ENJOYED CHRISTMAS, if you celebrate….
