lumberjack meets NYE

Buffalo shirt. Similar Sequin skirt.  Leopard ClareV. clutch. RayBan Sunglasses. Lace Heels. (c/o Payless.) Similar Denim Jacket.

When I was a kid, I used to come home from school and make myself the same snack every afternoon.  Chili, cranberry sauce, and hot chocolate.

They were all my favorite foods and I pretty much figured, “hey, why not eat them all at the same time?” (Makes sense right?)

I feel like this outfit is the sartorial equivalent of that.  A bunch of my favorite things in one look.  Kind of a lumberjack meets NYE look.

This week has been my busiest of the month by far.  We are leaving earlier than we thought for Christmas vacation, and everything got pushed up by about a week, which means I’ve been running around like a madwoman nonstop since last Saturday.  But really, with Christmas in just over a week and last day to ship deadlines rapidly approaching, what mother/woman/person isn’t in total crunch mode right now?
