Triple Stripes

Not quite sure what it is about a holiday weekend, but they always just seem to fly by, even though I barely do much more than spend time with family, eat too much (turkey, lasagna, apple pie, pumpkin cheese cake, boxes of russel stovers), and watch a lot of movies (Super 8, Elf, some Hallmark Channel Originals, haha).

The weekend was blessed with some unseasonably warm weather as well - for the most part I didn't wear tights, but I did throw them on if I was going out after the sunset. I just have to say that I am loving mid fifties - sixties in late November! Fingers crossed we have a mild winter, for a change.

It's always fun to see the rapid transformation after Thanksgiving into every and all things Christmas, especially with all the Black Friday hype and insanity. I didn't go out, and I only made one purchase, Lightroom, which was on sale for $100. So now I can finally do something with all those RAW photo files hogging my hard drive space.

Did you brave the crowds to score some discounted goods this weekend?

Great classic stripes!

I saw LR on sale, but I haven't made the jump to RAW so didn't see the need. Can't wait to see your new edited photos!

I didn't go out on Black Friday either. I wasn't really all for pushing and shoving. And I hate crowded places so I decided to pass. LOVE your outfit! I really like that black and white cardigan.

Come and enter!

I loved Super 8 - something about it just gave me the same warm fuzzies that ET gave me when I was a kid.

Love the stripes combo!

Veronica said...

Frannie Pantz said...

Yay for your clutch! It reminds me of a candy cane and is very holiday-esque! Love the holidays! I vow to never go out shopping on BF but that's just me. Glad you had a lot of fun and good food!

Yay, love all those stripes together! I did brave the Black Friday crowds, but not until the afternoon, and that was to get some brown riding boots that I've been wanting for ages.

Stripes sensation!! Love it!
And jealous of your weather... not because it's nicer than what I'm experience but that it's much much nicer than what I would be experiencing at home...

Ki said...

Awesome :D my favourite stripy thing is the clutch!

Anne said...

I like all the stripes together!

Black Friday is so not for me, though I am indulging in some cyber Monday deals as we speak.

Love all the stripes! I went out for a bit of Black Friday shopping but just in the New Haven downtown area so no crazy crowds...

the more stripes the merrier! Your food extravaganza sounds sweet. Its stuffing your face what the holidays are really about :)

Alex Elizabeth said...

This is definitely the best way to wear stripes. Especially with sequins :)

I see all those holiday wares behind you... it's already the end of year and I really actually don't know what happened.

Vanessa said...

Oooh! Keep us updated on how you like Lightroom. All the shooters in my camera club rave about it. I'm eager to know if it's easy to use and can be used instead of photoshop (which I don't have either).

SassyUptownChic said...

Cute skirt Lyddie! I have an olive green one similar to yours. Trying to think how to wear it. LOL You look great!!! :D

Bre said...

You look so good and I am also hoping we have a mild winter. I did pretty much the same as you. My sister and I hunkered down and watched old classic movies. We didn't look nearly as chic as you if thats what you wore, lol.
Cheers,
Bre

Triple stripes is fun! In Amsterdam I wore striped belt, shirt and socks together :)

Melina said...

I love the stripes on stripes on stripes look! It actually appears much more tame than it sounds!

Also the Lightroom purchase is FANTASTIC! I don't even know how I got by without it... especially with low light photos. You'll love it!

Really great idea on the triple stripes. I love it. You are always inspiring me to try new things.

BTW, still haven't worn that leopard shirt. I'm going to try to figure it out this week. To be continued...

That clutch is so cute- it reminds me of peppermint! I did not brave the crowds to do my shopping- I stayed behind the safety of my computer and picked up a few Christmas gifts as well as a couple of things for myself =)
