I typically hold out a bit longer before breaking out my denim, but after a few chilly nights, these jeans by Max Jeans felt like the perfect choice.

They are incredibly soft and very stretchy, and since I missed out on the grey denim last year, I was very happy to see these in 'limestone grey', which works now while I'm still embracing summer, and will be an equally good base for more autumnal shades when the time comes.

For sizing, I am wearing the four, though according to the size chart I would be an eight, and yes I did hem these about three inches, as I'm only 5'2" and I did not care for how they looked when cuffed.

Finding stylish, yet comfortable denim can be quite a challenge, but this pair gets my approval.

Into the navy

Nothing new going on here, just my continuing obsession with all things nautical. I could probably wear a nautically inspired look every day, but I'd never be able to come up with enough post titles.

In the rain

I really don't like photos in the rain, however, it was wet photos, or no photos, so I ran out and fired these off as quickly as possible. Don't let the smile fool you!

But now I need to spend the rest of the weekend in Christmas mode - getting the wrapping and baking finished, finding a recipe for a festive punch to serve on Christmas Eve, and of course doing those last minute runs to the store!

If you are someone who was organized enough to have everything done so this weekend your chores include getting a manicure and watching a Christmas movie, I totally envy you.

For the rest of us - lets hope we can get it all done and have a merry Christmas!

Bloggers are enablers.
Whenever we meetup we go shopping, as is our nature. Of course we stick to affordable places like TJMaxx, Target, Marshalls, and secondhand shops like Coco's, but we are a bunch with trouble saying no and a belief that there is no such thing as 'too many'.

Amber escaped before the shopping marathon began, but at Coco's on the Green Meg found a velvet blazer, Christine scored at Kate Spade wallet, Tiffany got a necklace and I was talked into a navy velvet blazer. This will be my third velvet blazer, but the cut is so much more flattering...

Later I goaded Tiffany into adding a new pair of ballett flats to her closet, dispite her protests that she has too many, and I eventually caved to a quilted leather vest, which will at least be a unique member of my vest collection.

X marks the spot

This outfit was inspired by Meg, so it's only fitting that she happened to be my photographer. I love how she paired her tulip skirt with a cozy cardigan, so when this fluffy cardi arrived from Dorothy Perkins, I knew just how I wanted to style it.

Dorothy Perkins is a UK based high-street store which only recently launched a US version of their site. They have an impressive inventory, and a great sale section; which I'm not embarrassed to say I looked at first, and will certainly be looking at again.

I really like the tribal motif on this one, and it did keep me nice and warm on the windy beach.
