Happy Holidays Everyone! How was your Christmas??
Can you believe how fast it came and went. I feel like I blinked and it was over. 

Normally I am not one to talk about presents but I have to gush about one of my gifts from my hubby. 
 I have been wanting one for years. I was so, so excited!!!

Let's take a second to talk about how much technology has changed.... 
Any guesses on how long it takes 1 picture to develop?
40 minutes! 

Apparently "shaking it like a poloraid picture" doesn't help speed the process up either. Five minutes after you snap the photo you start to see the faintest outline of the image, then 30-35 minutes later you see the full picture lol. I LOVE IT. The images look so vintage, like they are straight from the 80's. Coolest present ever!

What was your favorite surprise gift? 
Hope you all had the best time with fam and friends - Loves!

Uhm it is freezing. First time really blogging in the winter and it's time to find an indoor place to take pictures :) Brrrrrr!

It's December 21st and we survived! 
Did any of you guys think the end of the world was really coming? I'll be honest I may have got an extra case or two of water and some extra snacks just in case, but I wasn't admitting I really thought anything was going to happen :) 

Hope you all have a great weekend wrapping up your Christmas shopping. Loves -

LOVE this clutch and the fact that it can actually fit more than one teeny lipstick in it. I'd definitely get the most use out of the black one, so I'd say that's my favorite, but I also am loving the red.

Congrats Tara! Please email me so we can get you your prize :)

Last week we had our ILY Christmas party, a little sushi, and some good laughs. I always look forward to Christmas parties because you get to see people outside the daily grind. I'm so thankful for our employees, they have really become like a part of our family.

Feeling inspired by the icy cold trend of bright blues and shiny hues, metallic pieces are this seasons  hot, easy way to spruce up the classic fall/winter look.

TGIF. for reals.
So looking forward to getting in the holiday spirit this weekend. We got Santa letters to write, snow globes to make, and Christmas Lights to see.
What are your big weekend plans?

Sometimes I try to pretend I'm super organized but when it comes down to it, my car is never clean, my closet floor is piled with clothes, my purse is cluttered with receipts,  and my Christmas list is jumbled on 10 pieces of paper through out our house. So yesterday I sat down and pretended to be that super organized person and created myself a nice little spread sheet for my Christmas shopping. Suddenly all the things that were running through my head were clearly outlined in a pretty pastel color coordinated spreadsheet. Is this what organization feels like??? I like it. I like it a lot.

I have been looking for a forest green blouse for a couple months. I was so excited when I found the perfect hue during J. Crew's Cyber Monday Sale. I have already wore it a couple times since I got it which is pretty rare for me to wear the same top back to back. I just love the color.

Sorry I have been MIA last couple days. I surprised the fam with a last minute weekend trip to Disneyland. In my head I thought I'm going to get all my posts ready before we go buttttt that didn't quite happen.

Last week I was doing my blog reads and saw this skirt on my friend's blog, had one of those I MUST HAVE THIS moments. So I'm totally stealing her find. She dressed this little sequin number up for the perfect, classic holiday look so I wanted to show a fun way to dress it down for day to day wear. (P.s. If you haven't seen her blog // Pink Peonies // go look, you will have a new fave to follow )

If you click on the link to the Hunter Boots and are like, "Christine these are kids boots, what's going on??" Well it's because kids shoes are my new niche in finding a deal:
Adult Hunter Boots: $135
 Youth Hunter Boots: $75
Almost half the price and they look the exact same. I got a youth size 6, which is supposed to be a women's 8. They are still a little big, so I bet if your an 8.5 they would still work great. They also have a lot of color's that aren't offered in adult sizes. So it's kind of like a no brainer.

Hope you all are having a great week!! Happy Wednesday :)

 99% of my shopping trips this month have resulted in me coming home with some sort of oversized top, sweater, or knit. If it's baggy, loose, or comfy, I'm sold. There is just something about winter and  soft, oversized sweaters that brings a sort of nostalgia. It reminds me of Montana where I grew up, not sure why, but like they say, there is no place like home (or sweaters). 

What's your comfort piece of apparel that makes you feel at home?
