So I originally got this jacket in 12 and wished they had it in 12P.  Then everything in the store went 40% off.  I went back in to see if I saw anything else I liked and FOUND THIS COAT IN 12P!  This is the petite version – much better with arm length and fit in the shoulders!

I tried my hair curly today.  I washed and conditioned it as usual, added Frederic Fekkai Luscious Curls Creamir?t=whaevewomneei 20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=B000PHVNE0 and scrunched and let air dry 80%.  I then hit it with the dryer (with diffuser) for a bit until fully dry.  This totally made me look like a Glam Rock Groupie, so I hit the frizz with the curling iron.  Don't love, but considering I haven't gone curly in months, I didn't expect perfection.  The hair isn't used to this.

Last day of work in 2010!  I will be posting a bit over my Staycation, but I really hope that most days will be spent indoors snuggling with my husband and Emerson.  I doubt you want to see pictures of me in Old Navy yoga pants, tank tops, and chunky sweater cardigans every day, so I will mainly post what I wear when I head out of the house.

Tomorrow evening it's off to my sister's for a Christmas Eve dinner.  Saturday morning is to my mom's house, Sunday afternoon is my husband's aunt's house.  No other definite plans for the rest of next week – seeing where life takes me.  Maybe it will take me to a couple thrift stores – I am looking for some random mismatched wooden dining chairs.  I have always liked the look of mismatched chairs around the dining table.  We Craigslisted our old dining set when we inherited my father-in-law's set.  Unfortunately all his chairs were awful – falling apart, squeaking, and had rusty metal caps on the bottom of each leg that scratch the floor.  On top of it, they are ugly.  Currently they are in  pieces in our attic and we have gone months without any dining chairs.  I think this will be the holiday present for the home!

For those who celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a lovely holiday.  I will “see” all of you soon!

    If you’re on a jean hunt, try Talbots. I have fallen in love with their jeans. Under $100 and fabulous fit for a girl with a bit of curves!

    that third picture of you is SO good, Allie, I love it! congrats on finding the coat. I actually got out my favorite coat and wore it today, a full length lipstick red shearling that I splurged on years ago from the Victoria’s Secret catalog. Am finally posting pics again at my style blog if you want to check it out.

    I like your hair curly. I have naturally curly/wavy hair too, and with a bit of effort I can get big rocker hair. I tend to wear it straighter though, I have a hard time embracing my curls!

    The bracelet was part of the half-yearly sale so it was like… $15? Something insane like that.

    Check the stores, I found it in several sizes at the one on Conn. Ave in DC! Good luck!

    Um, I saw that jacket and immediately wanted it! May have to check out some stores to see if I can find it in black, because it’s nearly sold out online!

    I’m suffering some serious bracelet envy! ^-^
