So we're on the last week of school before Christmas break, and let me tell you, I am feeling it. My kids are feeling it. My husband is feeling it. It's almost time for a vacation!!! This will be the first Christmas in four years that we have been able to go anywhere for the holidays due to hubby's residency. Last year we were fortunate enough to be able to get away for a few days after Christmas, but this year we are off to Arizona to spend the week with my husband's whole side of the family for Christmas. All 34 of us together. 16 adults and 18 children. That's right, we're outnumbered now. This could be bad. We leave in 9 days and I can hardly wait. I'm not so excited about the drive (I hate driving anywhere) but I'm excited to get away for a bit and visit with all my cute sis-in-laws, my bro-in-laws, nieces and nephews, and my sweet in-laws. It'll be a crazy week, but fun.
So I've been packing in my head already. It's gonna be pretty cold in Sedona I hear so I'll be putting to good use some of the new sweaters and coats I've acquired in the past little while courtesy of all these insane sales a certain beloved store has had. When, oh when will the madness stop? If you're like me you may be feeling a little shopped out by all these sales. When is enough, enough, you know? I've decided that after I return from my vacation, when the new year begins, it's time to get back to the root of this blog...time to start finding things in my closet and re-working them to create lots of combinations without buying as much. While I'll never give up shopping for good (let's get real...lol), I've decided to once again create a monthly budget and try my hardest to stick to it. My best friend and I are gonna do it together (right?!!!) Anyone else wanna join in?
So I have an outfit to share with you...I snapped it in the dressing room last week when I made my Anthro returns:
What I Wore:
-Thousand Carat Pullover-Anthropologie
-Frilled Echelons Peacoat-Anthropologie
-Ultimate Skinny Jeans-Banana Republic
-Boutique 9 "Darting Wedges"-Endless (also sold at Anthro)
I have worn this coat so much this fall/winter already...it's the best coat! It goes with so much! I love it with the mustard yellow Thousand Carat sweater...such a fun color combination. Whenever I wear yellow and blue I can't help but think of my high school days...those were our school colors and I wore them all the time...the good ole' cheerleading days! =)
Just as a reminder...if you'd like the chance to win a gift card to Anthropologie you should check out Liz's blog because she is giving away two $25 gift cards, one $50 gift card and one $100 gift card! Details and entry info can be found HERE. How nice of her, right?! Good luck!
I'm off to catch up on my DVR before I head to bed...hope you have a great day!
