Looking for leftovers

Today was a very lazy day, lots of pie is still left over, so I'll be fixing that soon.
I'm not so ambitious to head out and fight crowds for sales, I know there will be plenty of good deals before the Christmas season is through.

I did stop into one shop today, a small local business called Taken for Granite, that always decorates for the holidays in the most spectacular way. I probably could have spent an hour just photographing everything there which caught my eye!

Yesterday I got dressed in my typical over the top holiday fashion (if not on a holiday, then when?!) And wore my cute black and gold striped dress I got this summer.

Since all I wanted was to be warm and cozy today, I did my best to keep things casual and not spend any time creating an outfit as I normally do.

Casual shopping

Took a few photos at Taken for Granite, the outside decorations are just as pretty as inside!

  5. Lyddie!! CUTE Holiday dress/outfit. I'm with you - I dress up, no elastic waists and such. There are so few days to really do it up. I went for it fur and all. It was so fun - until the Chef's uncle had a little too much jager and strolled out in his wife's silver fox fur coat from 10 yrs ago. Woops!! I never laughed so hard!! The wife on the other hand...not so much. HA!

  13. Lyddie I like you first outfit but the second one, when your look is more relaxed suits you perfect, maybe it's the sweater, the collar looks perfect and the color so nice for your skin tone, you look absolutely beautiful.
