Since I've been on the "only buy items on your December wishlist from Anthro" plan it's given me lots of opportunities to examine my closet and pull out items that still have tags on them. Bad me. Today I went with the Muse tank from J Crew. I got this on sale a few months back and was pleasantly surprised by the interesting color that it is. It's called Golden Topaz...not yellow, not orange...Topaz. It's a unique looking color...something I didn't own anything like. I originally wanted to pair it with my purple Set the Course cardi but then I told myself to step outside my purple box and look for something else. I found this:
-Muse Tank-J Crew
-Zebra Print cardigan-Loft (Summer 2010)
-Skinny Jeans-American Eagle
(Pardon the terrible quality of the photo...it was dark out and the lighting in our house is horrible for picture taking when it's dark)
I found a little way to squeeze some purple into my outfit afterall..in the rainboots. It was pouring buckets today so rainboots were my go-to shoe. I liked how the color palette of the outfit turned out overall...not my typical pairing but not bad.
I'm hosting a holiday lunch tomorrow for all the resident wives in my husband's department...you're asking how I got so lucky, right? haha. After the gym this morning I headed out to go shopping for food and decor. I found a very cute table runner at Target and picked up some new Christmas lights to wrap around my greenery on our staircase that I finally got around to putting up today. The good thing about hosting a holiday party is that you're kind of forced to take the time to deck the halls with all the trimmings. It's lots of work, but I love how it looks when you're done...so pretty, especially at night. I'm off to bake some sugar cookies and make a Raspberry Ribbon Pie for tomorrow...sounds so good right?! Hope it is!
