I’m Dreaming of a Chartreuse Christmas

Christmas Outfit

Well, at least for my dress. I put together a cute little holiday outfit that I’ve been fantasizing about. I think it’s super cute for the holidays, and each piece would be great to remix into my own wardrobe for lots of further use!

1 I can’t think of anything better to wear than a chartreuse dress like Frozen Margaritas Dress | Modcloth

2 It took all my self control not to buy this sweater, which is on sale right now! Sequin Front Caridan | The Limited

3 I’m pretty sure I’ve had dreams about the Opaque Fairisle Tights | ASOS

4 I love these shoes and they’re the perfect touch Børn ‘Verna’ Flat | Nordstroms

5 A cute flower for my hair, such as this Magnolia Flower Clip | Enchantedly Yous, Etsy

Sequins: The Scrapbook of Frankie Pratt

In the past couple of months, I’ve gotten two free books! One was from a work seminar, about boosting your email marketing efforts, but the other was hand’s down way more exciting–I won The Scrabook of Frankie Pratt, by Caroline Preston, through the Modcloth blog! Yay! It was this post, to be exact.

Anyway, while Monsieur was taking pictures of me in honor of Whiskey Day, he noted a small little package next to my front door.

It’s so beautiful! I’d have to put it in the top five most beautiful books I have on my shelf (competitors include The Fountain and most of my Flight books). I started reading it in the car, and I just love the layout. This book instantly makes me want a typewriter more than I already did. I also have the sudden urge to go to my local antique shop and look for old photos to faux-scrapbook with….

I’m sure I’ll have more of an update when I finish reading the book! I’ll keep you all posted.

**Disclaimer: I don’t think this post needs one, but yes–the book was given to me from Modcloth. It was through a giveaway, though, and I’m under no obligation to write this post. Just felt like it, was all!

Sequins: Online Fashion

Whenever I take the plunge and order clothes online, I’m always so excited at how well it works out. Maybe it’s my negative-Nelly attitude to life, but I always seems to assume the clothes will work out horribly or not fit or something bad will happen. However, while this means I rarely actually buy clothes online, I’ve found it always works out well.

Sweater: Target, Skirt: Kensi, Tights: Sojourner, Shoes & Shirt: Modcloth.com, Belt: Thrifted, Coat: H&M

It didn’t hurt that both Miss Stripes & myself got epic outfit compliments when we ran some of my errands before doing the photos. Yay for smalltown folk being surprised at non-sweatpants outfits! (I kid, I kid. Kinda.)

I also wore my favorite green coat ever, from H&M. The brightness of this coat always makes me feel peppy. It was, however, farrrrr far far too cold for this coat to be a good idea, especially considering the half-length sleeves of my sweater. I froze the entire day.

All in all, though, this shirt was a lot of fun (and I’m not being paid to say it). I will say the shirt lacked a lot of structure, though, which is why the belt was a requirement. I think I might sew some darts under the bust when I get some free time.

The shoes, which I’ve dubbed my old-man shoes, are amazing. They’re comfortable, professional, and look good with about 90% of my wardrobe. They make me super happy!
