Seven hundred out of focus lights

I'm counting down to Christmas with my 12 favorite things; today is day seven and I think that Christmas lights are a pretty awesome thing to photograph, when they are completely out of focus. So today my favorite thing is Christmas light Bokeh!

Today was a day of a Christmas light debacle; half the lights on the tree went out, so we went to CVS to get a fresh box. Plugged those in, they lit and I started putting them on the tree. Then half went dead. Back to CVS. It's a good thing we've been so lazy we haven't gotten the ornaments up yet.

For the No Repeats Challenge today I wanted to tackle a skirt which has been a big repeat offender in the past. I love pairing this striped skirt with my turquoise sweater.
So today I piled on tons of different colors. But I think I like it better with the turquoise sweater!!

Got a lot of colors there.

  3. Oooh it looks so pretty!! And I love all the shots of the lights :D

  4. This looks is great! I love the skirt and the scarf!

  5. Okay we can blame CVS...that's exactly where I got my lights and it has been lighting hell!! Lyddie today I almost flew into the tree and tipped it over while standing on the step stool. Is it January 2nd yet?

    ps-can i ask your assistance on a new used camera?


  6. I LOVE the scarf and the earring.
    This looks Christmasy : )

    Busy like a bee,

  7. Wow, those light pictures are pretty! I had to replace all of my lights this year, and actually did run to CVS for the replacements (since it's a 2 minute walk rather than a 15 minute drive!). Thank goodness for CVS.

    I like all the color in this outfit! Especially the bright pink belt (what a steal for a buck!).

  8. There is something really magical about Christmas lights. These out of focus photos are gorgeous.
