This year’s Christmas for Dustin and I is a bit unusual.  We’ve already celebrated it TWICE and it’s only the 21st!  Once with my siblings since my brother and his wife are spending the holiday in Ireland and once this past weekend with his family who are heading to Colorado. Next up, we’ll be hanging with my folks in Atlanta and then meeting up with his family to ski and spend New Years in Beaver Creek.  If you want to get technical, there’s a third celebration since we’ve already done our gift swap- he got his coveted Frye boots and I got a much needed ski jacket so I wear one that actually fits this year!

With Thanksgiving and all that comes with celebrating Christmas, it’s been a busy married life so far but great! (Confession: I won’t be complaining when January rolls around and things slow down!)

For Saturday’s present exchange and supper I wore this comfy look which is pretty much all Madewell. This brand is my new obsession – especially this oversized sweater!


We laughed at this last photo but I kinda like it, POWER SHOULDERS!

Sweater, shirt, pants and necklace: Madewell, sunglasses: TOMS and boots: Sam Edelman

The sweater is new and already a staple.  I wanted to link it for you all but it appears to be sold out! My boots and shades are older so I linked some comparable ones. The jeans are my first pair from Madewell and so far so good- comfy, seems to hold the if they could just keep the color and not fade after a few washes!

First time in many years that I’m not scrambling to get last minute gifts, so, good luck to you if you are!

been wanting to introduce my newly thrifted over-sized GEM of a sweater so here goes:
dress, sweater, boots- thrifted. tights: Target. sunnies: UO, necklace: Lucky Brand. purse: via VAMP vintage sale

most of this outfit is actually second-hand or thrifted. oddly enough the dress gets a 1,000,000 compliments when i wear it out and it was found at Rag-O-Rama originally from Target. i know many girls out there can relate with how awesome that sort of thing is! additional praise is due to Rag-O-Rama for these killer boots! i traded in clothes and picked up these guys who seem to have been perfectly broken in by someone with the exact same feet
(which i find nearly impossible since i have the world’s weirdest feet…!)
-thanks anonymous feet twin!

this week while you’re shopping for last minute Christmas presents and stressing out, i’ll be packing up my entire house to move next week. probably the WORST time of year to move but looking at it this way:
starting a new year in a new place…..
