Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree

This year's Christmas card...My cousin replied back that he's glad there isn't a song that goes something like "Runnin' Naked Around the Christmas Tree" cause he'd hate to get that card! :o)

Dressed up in Pajamas

Hat: Hubby's
Necklace: DIY
Jacket: Thrifted
T-Shirt: Target
PJ Pants: Gift from Mom
Owl Slippers: Gift from Son

After being awake a big part of the night with the baby, I chose to wear my PJs all day.  However; I didn't want to look frumpy so I wore a soft fitted tshirt and pom-pom necklace.  I took the boys for a walk dressed like this. :o)  I have "dressed up" my pajamas before to spend the evening at my parents, so this was nothing new for me.

Rushing Around in Red Tights

Red Beads: Great Grandmother
Beaded Collar: Vintage
Belt: Thrifted
Red Tights: ?
Boots: Old

I had to get dressed fairly quick, we slept in a little later than we should've.  Probably due to seeing Rise of the Guardians last night.  We went to a later showing so the baby could sleep through the movie and not disturb anyone.  Even when when we go to "kids" movies, I'd rather not have a crying baby (mine or other's) making it hard to hear.  Amazingly, the only thing I forgot in my rush to get dressed was to put on my earrings.  When we run late, I tend to feel like I've walked out the door half naked, and always ask Hubby if I'm decent. :o) 

On another note, I found out that I can only wear my red tights with boots now, as said boots have been chewing on 'em.  I told Hubby that I "need" a second pair of red tights to wear with regular shoes now!  As an added "sign" I saw a fancier pair on Heathering Heights that would be a great option for the second pair!

20 Minutes

Earrings: Made by a Friend
Necklace: DIY
Belt: Refashioned
Black Lace Top: Ross
Grey Lace Top: New York and Co.
Blazer: Thrifted
Pants: Refashioned
Socks: Swiped from Dad years ago
Booties: Thrifted

I put this on to wear to a church function, but 20 minutes after I got there I realized I didn't have a nursing cover with me, so Baby and I went home.  I was about to change clothes to tackle some things around the house, when I decided to snap some pictures.  I ended up just kicking off my shoes and Blazer and stayed in my outfit the rest of the day.


PS: This is what happens when you try to get a "cool" picture slinging your jacket over your shoulder! :o)

Beaded Necklace/Collar: Vintage
Belt: Thrifted
Watch: Gift from Hubby
Leather Bracelets: Colorado
Top: Old
Skirt: JCPenny (clearance)
Tights: Target
Boots: Old

My tired look is due to a teething baby...we woke up a LOT last night.

I have wondered why I never get any comments on here.  This week a friend text me that she tried to comment, but could not.  Then I remembered that my sister had said the same thing about a month ago.  So I changed some of the settings.  I was able to leave a comment and I asked my sister to try.  She could too, so I guess I fixed the problem that I didn't even know I had. :o)

Shopping in Boots

Pinecone Necklace: Auction
Acorn Necklace: Gift from Mom
Sweater: Grandmother's
Yellow Shorts: I dyed them
Brown Sweater Tights?
Boots: Old

I totally enjoyed wearing this outfit, except for the waist of my tights were stretched out so I kept having to haul 'em up!  I will be wearing my other brown tights from now on...these have been retired!  I wanted to get the fall decorations in the shot...not the Christmas ones though. :o(  I have been fussing this year that Thanksgiving gets skipped over by the Christmas decorations.  Good part about that was I bought Thanksgiving napkins for 80% off!!! :o)

Mario, Luigi, and Princess Peach

Mario: Purchased Costume

Luigi: Hat (I made) + Green shirt + overalls

Princess Peach: Crown (I made) + Blue earrings + Blue necklace + Pink shirt + Lots of makeup + Big Hair (also wearing Pink glitter shoes that didn't make it into the photo)

When Son 1 picked the Mario costume, Son 2 and my costumes just fell into place.  I decided I was Princess Peach when she grew up and became a Mom. :o)  Second photo was taken on my phone so that's why the photos don't match at all!

Yesterday's Outfit was Great...but this is not it!

Watch Necklace: Gift from Friend
Red "Jacket": Garage Sale (refashioned)
Top: TJMaxx (old, refashioned)
Pants: Stein Mart (dyed)
Crocs: Gift from Hubby

So yesterday I wore a pretty outfit that turned out to be pretty uncomfortable!  Even though I received complements...I won't be wearing that exact same outfit again.  One of the biggest issues was I wore a jacket that is still a bit tight in the arms (bought pre-baby) and that just doesn't work when I'm carrying around a big little guy!

Enough about that...Today's outfit has a lot of DIY.  My "jacket" was previously a blouse, my blouse was tunic length before I gave it the chop, and my pants were a wedding dress...just kidding they were khaki and I dyed them. :o)

Special thanks to my Assistant and Part-time 6 year old son! :o)  He took the second photo (plus several more that didn't get used, but ARE good enough to keep).

When an Outfit Just Happens

Gold Hoop Earrings: Gift from Hubby
Pearls: Gift from Friend
Black Beads: Had for Ages
Coral Ring: Silver Artist at an Antiques Show
Red Leather Belt: Wall's Outlet
Top: DIY
Skirt: Vintage Dress refashioned into Skirt
Red Blazer: Thrifted
Red Leather Shoes: Marshall's

I usually choose what to wear to church on Saturday night.  I wasn't sure last night so I hung several options out, among which was this skirt.  I had planned to wear it with a top that is in storage, but really it isn't cool enough yet.  I had finished painting the Owl on my tank top yesterday, so it was laying across the ironing board, and as my gaze fell on it this morning I knew it would pair nicely with the skirt.  I first thought of a Black belt, but when I reached for the belt I grabbed the Red one instead.  Since the belt was Red, it made sense to wear the same color shoes.  I stumbled across my Coral ring when I was digging for my pearls.  Right before I headed out the door, I grabbed my Red Blazer.  Outfit complete.

When I was reconstructing the Skirt from a Vintage Dress, I decided not to attach the lining.  I thought I'd have more options if it was left separate, then I could wear the long liner, or a short liner, or tights, or shorts.  For the rest of the day, I removed the Lining Skirt and wore Black shorts underneath.

Cardigan: Academy (clearance)
Brown Cords: refashioned
Mary Janes Pin: Vintage
Crocs: Gift from Hubby (Dillards)
