“Where Oh Where Oh Where Is…

Shadow?” Anyone? Oh, please disregard my wandering thoughts. I am completely losing it over here.

Where did the time go? Seriously, I have approximately 5% done that I need to have done right now. But instead of doing those things I am writing a post. Funny how I always choose the more fun thing to do.

And I forgot to remove the darn garland again! For every single picture. On each and every day. You think I could remember one time. I did remember yesterday and today, so there is that advantage. Yep, that word (ho) appears in almost every single outfit photo in this post. Is the universe trying to tell me something? Well… ho, ho, ho! I’m jolly!

I purchased the Anthropologie Petalblush Dress on sale in a size small during the additional 20% off sale dresses promotion. I am very glad I did, but I am almost wishing I would have kept the medium and not the small. The small might be a little…too small.

I paired it with a grey scarf and mustard cable knit tights from H & M.

I wore this on a day I knew was going to be really tough. I figured the bright colors would be cheerful. They were. The day ended up not being as draining as I feared.

And the muppet fringe? Well, I gotta tell you, it actually made me happy. It is nice to have a little extra support even if it is in the form of a dissected puppet. Comforting.

This photo was taken the next day. I look as tired as I felt. It was really a beautiful day in Southern California, though. It was nice to wear short sleeves and bare legs. I wore my mustard Circle The Globe skirt that I bought off of eBay last year. It had previously been too big, but I recently had the waist taken in. Gotta love a good tailor.

The hedgehog shirt (Creature Feature Top ) is one of my favorites. I previously wore it here. The necklace is the Corallina Necklace from Anthropologie now missing a link. And the shoes are Anthropologie’s Ruffled Shooties (I purchased my usual 8 during the Black Friday sale. Probably could have sized down one, but they were all sold out).

I paired my Anthroplogie Ruffled Sweater Vest (previously worn here and here) with my Free People Miles Of Henley Dress in charcoal. I have said it before, but this vest is my favorite purchase of the year. Yes, year. I find myself wearing it at least twice a week. There is another mom at school with one. I hope we do not show up on the same day wearing it.

The earrings are Lucky Brand. The boots are vintage.

How are you holding up this week? I am just completely and utterly overwhelmed. I have no idea how I am going to accomplish everything anything. Any suggestions?

* Oh, and tonight I am going to go see The Nutcracker with my family. I could really use some help. I want to wear a tulle skirt. I was thinking of my Anthropologie Emeline Tulle Skirt from Anthropologie or I have my BCBG tan tulle skirt from last year. With the Emeline I was going to wear the Peony Applique Pullover. With the BCBG I would wear either a tan long sleeved shirt or maybe a lace pullover. The only shoes that I own (I only own about four pairs of heels) that may work are my plain nude pumps or my new ruffled shooties. The other dilemma with that is it is probably going to be freezing. I might need to wear tights. But I don’t think either shoe would look right with them. I did get a pretty pair of dressier boots, but they are currently wrapped under the tree. So, my only boot choices are vintage or black. What should I do? Please help. : )

Thank you!

UPDATE: I was all set to wear my Emeline skirt, but then my daughter came out of her bedroom in the most beautiful tulle dress. And I knew tulle belonged all to her tonight. She looked so pretty.

So, I ran to my closet and I spotted the Bourgeois Dress with the ballerinas on it. In fact, I recreated the whole outfit the model is wearing, except the necklace. I wore my daughter’s foxhead necklace, because I thought it looked a bit ratlike. I love a theme! Thank you for all of your help. I think I will wear the Emeline Skirt on Christmas Eve. Have a lovely weekend!

    • I will update in a sec. I ended up wearing something else. I will probably wear that skirt Christmas Eve.

      Thanks for responding! : )

      Have a great Sunday!

  1. I like the Anthro Tulle skirt too…unwrap the boots under the tree, wear them and tights, have fun, and wrap the boots back up. Santa won’t mind! (Because you are Santa!)

    • Hi Becca. I thought about it. But I just couldn’t unwrap them. I would feel too guilty. I ended up wearing black boots. It was comfy.

      Thanks for giving me your opinion. I really appreciate it!

      Have sweet dreams!

  2. I like the blush colored skirt on the left – I would be highly tempted to do what the previous poster said – unwrap the boots and wear them! Enjoy “The Nutcracker” – sounds fun! Oh, and I LOVE the petalblush sweater dress! I was tempted to exchange my Medium for a Small too (I have recently lost some weight) but I’m SURE after Christmas I’ll be glad I kept the Medium ’cause I’m SURE I will be carrying a “food baby” after all this holiday hoopla! See – the “dissected muppet” IS fun AFTER ALL!

    • Hi Judi. Thank you! I think sticking with the medium is a good idea. It will be comfy. I felt this was a little short throughout the day.

      I ended up wearing black boots. I couldn’t unwrap a present. I had lasted this long without opening them. I will update in ten minutes with what I wore.

      Have a great Saturday!

  3. Hmmmm… this is a tough one since they are both so pretty. I think I am leaning towards the Emeline because I have already seen how beautiful it looks on you and know that you can style it warmly. Pretty AND warm is pretty important. But, I am also very intrigued by the BCBG tulle skirt. I am with everyone – unwrap the boots and wear ’em! Ya know what I would do? I would try on both outfits and whichever one made me smile is the one I would wear. Can’t wait to see which one you choose!

    • Thank you, Cynthia. I do love both skirts. I ended up deciding to wear the Emeline, but did not. I will explain in my updated post. But I will probably wear it Christmas Eve instead. I was happy with what I ended up wearing. This day has been so long and exhausting. I did not have time to work on a long post. So I am throwing in a small one I wrote a bit back.

      Thanks for your advice! I appreciate and need it!

      Have a perfect weekend!

    • Thanks Bronzi. Unfortunately, I did not end up wearing tulle. I will update in a sec. But I will wear it Christmas Eve!

      Have a super Saturday! : )
