i love christmas. i love everything about it. shopping for gifts, wrapping presents, decorating, exchanging gifts, getting together with friends and family. i especially love finding that perfect gift for someone and watching them open it. i had to work christmas eve, just as i have for as long as i can remember. i love dressing up for work and this year i was very festive. as soon as i arrived at work, i found out i missed the memo that we were allowed to wear jeans for the day. i would have worn this anyway, but i was definitely a little overdressed. after work, we exchange gifts with my mom's best friend and her daughter (tradition since we were babies) and then it's off to a big family party. i knew this outfit would work right up until the time we got our new christmas pajamas (not christmas themed pjs). this was also a tradition since we were babies.
what i love about this skirt is that it has a very grandma feel, but was able to become modern with a gold cardigan and some strappy wedges. who said you cant wear sandals in the winter? they are perfect with tights or socks and you get way more bang for your buck than if you could only wear them in one season. i think of this outfit as the chic version of the christmas sweater.
