Dressed in holiday style

That was a delightful little break. Seeing family, devouring amazing food, and oh yes, shopping. It's no exaggeration that I avoid the mall like the plague this time of year, however TJMaxx, Marshalls, and Home Goods pretty much become my second homes.

While I tried to do a good deal of my gift shopping online, there is something that is missed by not stepping to the brick and mortar stores. I love seeing all the Christmas decor; the lights, glitter, decked out trees and glistening shop windows. Then there is the gift wrap, ribbons, tags, all things I adore and tend to buy in abundance. Usually my desire to have a theme with my gift wrap goes out the window when I bring home half a dozen different papers I simply could not pass up. Cards, I've already mentioned, and just a reminder that I would love for you to exchange holiday cards with me!

  1. I love the holiday vibe of your outfit! Oh you are reminding me to print holiday cards and send them soon!

    i like your shirt

  3. Such a pretty look! And yes, that 4 day break was definitely needed, now its back to the grind, haha

  4. It sounds like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. And I have to agree about visiting brick and mortar stores. While I love getting most of my actual shopping for gifts done online, I need to go to a b&m store at least a few times each season to see all the decorations and pick up the things that I need to see in order to choose, like wrapping paper, ribbons and gift tags. I should probably be doing that this week, come to think of it! I love how festive this outfit is, without being over the top - the red and white plaid always makes me think holiday, but in the best possible way :)

  5. love the plaid and red shoes together. it is festive but also you could pull it off for a perfect fall day!


  6. The box purse is very chic! It adds a great touch to the outfit and of course I'm loving the midi skirt.

  7. Loving your festive outfit with the red and green accents! Thanksgiving was a wonderful break, but now I am looking forward to Christmas break even more!

  8. Love the box purse super cute. You can't go wrong with a plaid top or midi skirt, perfect combo.

  9. I'm all set to do all my shopping in a blaze of glory and frustration next week (having already done all my online orders). I even booked a vacation day so I can hit the stores on a Wednesday morning and hopefully save myself some grief. Because I actually do like Christmas shopping in the the stores - the atmosphere, etc - so I hoping to enjoy myself a bit with it this year!
