Ten lovely branches

I'm counting down to christmas with my twelve favorite things; today is all about that bit of evergreen we display in our living rooms. I simply adore the scent of a fresh cut tree, and once it's covered in lights, what is more majestic?

Sometimes I look into my close and think there isn't a thing in there to wear. I pull out a few things and am just not liking anything. The last time that happened, I pulled out the leopard pencil skirt and it was a success. So I decided to try it again and behold; Success!!

Don't change my spots

This is the Banana Republic sweater I thrifted last week, and I think it was $2.50 well spent. The condition is perfect and it fills a pale pink void in my closet. There was a time I adored pastels. Then I hated them and got rid of them all. Now I might be warming up to them again.

Don't change my spots

For the No Repeats Challenge, the item I haven't worn in a long time are the shoes. Last seen in January. That's pretty bad. Though, they aren't exceptionally comfortable, so I've been avoiding them for a reason.

Trim the tree

I was putting the lights on the tree when I suddenly thought about how great some fisheye shots would be, so I ran to switch up my lens and I love the results!

YAY TREES!! I love trees *stares happily at our tree* :)
And I love your outfit, the skirt is awesome :D

Anne said...

Wow, those trees are beautiful! I'd love to have a real tree, but I'm not sure how that would work in my apartment.

I like today's outfit - the top looks very springy, but the print of the skirt and dark tights and shoes make it good for winter. It's too bad the shoes aren't more comfy - they're so cute!

oh your puppy is so cute, and you look great, that skirt is very nice and fits you like a glove, I'm not a fan of pastels as but like you I still long for something pale pink to make it into my closet.

Melanie said...

That skirt is FABULOUS. I really need more animal prints in my life. Cool fish-eye pictures, too :)

I am so with you on filling the pale pink closet void. That sweater is divine - what a find!!

Now about the tree...uh Lyddie I am going in after I leave a few comments and I may not post tomorrow b/c I need to get that thing working once and for all. You may hear me screaming all the way from SoCal.

Too bad you didn't live next door because a fish eye of me trying not to strangle myself with the lights that turn off and on could actually be mildly hilarious.

You have amazing camera skills!!


Mandy said...

I'm not a huge Christmas person, but I do love Christmas trees! I just dug out my Yankee candle Fir Pine or whatever scent because I was craving that smell :)

I love leopard print and purple together! The sweater is pale pink, you say? It appears more ivory to me, but then again, this is on a computer, not IRL.
I love the fish-eye photos!! :)

Nadine2point0 said...

BEautiful tree photos - and I can't believe that sweater - what a steal! Our best thrift store closed here a year ago :(

Ohhhh these photos are stunning! I love this time of year :) And your outfit is great. I like the combo of girly pink with the more edgy animal print.

Kristin said...

I just love relaxing in the living room with all the lights off, watching the lights twinkle on our tree! Gorg skirt btw!

Alex Elizabeth said...

Love it love it love it! The colors are perfection! I wish pale pink looked that good on me!

Terri said...

Oh, I love the fisheye of your pup!

Diana Mieczan said...

Your method for finding and outfit is awesome, I should give it a try. We just got our tree and it has lights but, no ornaments... maybe tonight :)

Ali said...

Fisheye pictures, so neat! And Chloe, so cute. :D :D <3 I love your little christmas tree! He/she is adorable.

I need to do this no repeats challenge of yours.. but it gets hard to do when I only have a certain number of skirts and dresses that are school appropriate. xD I dress like such a whore. D: D: kidding. Only sometimes.

So I really love your purple pink scarf. :D It is quite adorable with your leopard skirt.

Kimberly said...

I love everything about this post - the trees and your outfit! Gorgeous!

And that picture of your dog with the tree in the background is so pretty!

Andie said...

great fish eye shots, Lydia! I have thought about getting a fish eye lens, but I don't think I'd use it that much! :)

You look fantastic as always! :)
