I got back my camera! And with it some very overdue pictures from Christmas!
So Christmas Eve was a bit of a mess. Looking back, I can't recall what happened but I can remember getting dressed in a rush, realizing what I wanted to wear was not clean, not having time to do my hair. Usually, we dress up for Christmas Eve (my sister wore a hostess dress, my mom wore a top with velvet pants, even Emerson wore a dark green velvet dress). Yeppers, I wore jeans. They WERE clean!
My sister hosted, made a delicious meal. We had classic Christmas crackers, plenty of wine, and my mom read The Night Before Christmas to Emerson and she opened presents from her stocking.
No pictures of me. I was wearing my chunky taupe cardi from Ann Taylor, my gray and tan striped surplice tee also from Ann Taylor, and jeans. We do Christmas Day pretty casual – breakfast while opening presents. Above, you see Emerson enjoying her Christmas present – a new kitchen!
Day After Christmas:
Black and white striped scoop tee – Ann Taylor (no longer available)
Black felted wool military-inspired jacket – Ann Taylor (no longer available online but may be in stores on sale rack)
Black trousers – Gap Perfect Trouser Pants
Boots – Fitzwell “Andrea”
Necklaces – One from the Renaissance Festival, the other from Ann Taylor LOFT. Both many years old.
Bracelet – Tarnish via Nordstrom
Nope, I didn't hit the spray tan before these pictures. I honestly have no clue why I am a weird orange color. The day after Christmas we went to visit my husband's family up near Baltimore. We had a wonderful meal and spent time with his awesome relatives.
Emerson rocked another one of her Christmas presents – a faux fur coat from her Aunt Debbie! She loved seeing the snow fall…
