Friday: Going Dotty

Jacket: Banana Republic Outlet (years old – similar) | Top: c/o Gwynnie Bee | Jeans: c/o Liverpool Jeans Company | Boots: DUO (similar) | Bracelets: Ann Taylor

This is almost what I planned on wearing to work on Monday. Though I felt sick, I tried to rally, got dressed, but was too muddled in the mind and stuffy and achy to make it. Turned around, changed into sweats and crawled into bed. Since then, I received two pairs of jeans from Liverpool Jeans Company in the mail and just HAD to wear a pair. I’ll be honest, I hadn’t heard of Liverpool Jeans Company before they contacted me but now I am a major fan. Jeans that slim and lift, have a very reasonable pricepoint, and have lyrics from Paul McCartney and John Lennon in the lining? Yeah, pretty darn awesome. These are the Sadie Straight jeans and on my curvy frame they are the type of skinny jean I like – slim, fitted but not painted on. Stretchy and comfortable, but they haven’t stretched out over the work day. So far pretty impressed.

So glad the weekend is here! I am 99% ready for Christmas. So maybe I have only mailed out about 10 holiday cards and have a stack mocking me on my desk and Emerson has a stocking (this one, I had it come with a message from Santa and she’s super excited) but only two gifts in it, but those can be done this weekend. Sunday we’re going to my mom’s to make cookies, Monday night my sister is hosting Christmas Eve dinner, and starting this year we are hosting Christmas Day at our house. Looking forward to the house smelling of bacon and coffee, filled with the people I love the most, and Emerson being old enough to really understand and enjoy the holiday! Just thinking about it makes me feel better (flu symptoms subsiding, now just congested/sneezy/coughy/headachy but at least no fever/body aches/brain fog).

Oh and yeah, I totally need to polish these boots.  It will be my Christmas gift to them.

    I love it when you get wear Gwynnie Bee items I have in my “closet” on their website. It give me ideas of how I might wear the items myself.

    Glad you’re feeling better. Happy Holidays!

  • It is a super cute top – love the fabric which is a bit spongy and the sleeves are a great length. Would be super cute with a skirt too!

    How do the Liverpool jeans compare to NYDJ?

  • You know, so far I think they’re comparable. These are sueded cotton-like just like my dark red NYDJ skinnies and I think they slim just as well. Do know I don’t find my red NYDJs to be as… supportive as the regular denim and they are known that way. I have another pair of Liverpools I will wear likely next week, haven’t even tried them on yet and I’ll let you know how I think those are in comparison to NYDJs too. 🙂
