A week until Christmas and it's warm enough in DC for bare legs? I do feel a bit crazy, but it's seriously balmy in the Nation's Capital and I just had to take advantage of it. Back to tights tomorrow!

This weekend is all about the holidays. Tonight we will be taking Emerson to some festival of lights display in the area – she LOVES holiday lights and I think such an event will blow her mind. Sunday we are going to my husband's aunt's house to celebrate the holiday with his side of the family. He and I have been together so long our families are one – my sister and mom will be joining us! The rest of the weekend is up in the air and I like it that way. Do you have any good plans for the weekend?

Not outfit related, but I have been nominated as a “Top Fashionista” for the Washington Post's Top Tweeps contest.  I would be super appreciative if I could get your vote – do know you have to go through every category to vote, but if you don't feel like voting for those you don't know it will give you the option to bypass. Thank you!

    All kinds of color blocking this week – love it! And can never go wrong with a leopard heel 🙂

    Extra points for matching your lipstick to your belt! 🙂

    Loving this color blocked look lady!  Your leopard pumps look fab.

    Thanks! And I find when I buy prints I end up not wearing them as often as I do solids. I am so grateful that colorblocking has come to be en vogue because it fits my personal style so well – bright colors, bold statements in classic silhouettes!

    I love the color blocking – I really have to give it a try. I tend to stick more to having one of the items be in a print than trying the two solid colors together. And I agree with Emily, I love the look on you when you’re bare-legged much better – but I know that the weather sometimes dictates tights whether or not we want to wear them.

    I also wanted to say that your leg are looking fantastic and very slender! I’ve noticed it in other outfits, but these shoes really make your ankles look thin.

    Oh my goodness, I love those colours! Really festive somehow and just gorgeous on you! I wish we had lovely colourful skirts like you guys seem to have. Pretty limited clothing choices in New Zealand and shipping is v. expensive. Oh well, moving to the UK next year so shopping treats abound…

    Love your color-blocking streak! It sounds like you all are going to have a lovely night. We took A to a small replica of Frisco called Safety Town with her friends tonight. It is all decorated with lights, she loves them this year too. Have a great weekend!

    LOVE this outfit. I sometimes have a hard time wearing colors together that are close on the color wheel, but you pull it off with ease.

    I too have yellow raisin, this one is called Blue Turquoise though it doesn’t seem that color is still available (though they have Blue Depths at full price which looks gorgeous).

    What color is your Halogen skirt? I have it in “Yellow Raisin” but I’d like to get this one too! The one I have came in a different color than it looked online.

  11. December 16, 2011 / 9:22 pm

    I liked the fuschia/orange, and I am LOVING this! The fit of the skirt is so superb on you, too, and the trench coat tones it down just so.

    I definitely agree, 3 colours makes it tough – I think colourblocking outside of the summer months is always a challenge!  You definitely pulled it off here though 🙂

  13. December 16, 2011 / 7:21 pm

    I love that you’re pulling out bright colors at a time of year when most people are in gray and black!

    How long have you and your husband been together? I saw a reference to 1994 in your last post — did you start dating in high school?

  14. December 16, 2011 / 5:59 pm

    Yay, thanks so much! I was so excited to be nominated, I didn’t even know the contest was taking place! 🙂

  15. December 16, 2011 / 5:58 pm

    Thanks Emily! I do agree, tights do weight down colorblocking. Though I have a pair of berry-colored tights I have yet to wear them because I feel a bit insane in them, and that brings a 3rd color into the mix (three IS a crowd). I also gravitate towards cool colors like the ones in this look… 🙂

    Last night I was voting for my fave DC-area blogger (Jonah Goldberg) when I was pleasantly surprised to see you in one of the categories. You got my vote!

    ps. also the skirt is a GREAT fit – if you find it in other colours you should definitely get some duplicates!!

    I really like this, for me it’s a lot better than your previous colour-blocking look (the fuschia/orange).  I think it’s the shoes that make the difference (and the opportunity to go bare-legged!) as I think the heavy tights and shoes in the last one dragged it down.

    The blue and green are pretty similar but I like how you added the pink belt to break it up and ensure they don’t clash.

    I am IN LOVE with this outfit. The colors, the leopard print heels, the bag, the jacket….i’m at a loss, but this is an amazing look!!!

    Voted!  🙂
