Purple Passion

Christmas day we traditionally go to my in-laws for dinner. This J Crew blouse was a Christmas gift. I love how colorful it is and I really like this outfit. However, the shorts (bought on ebay) are really too large. I am taking them to get altered today as I think they will look much better if they are fitted correctly.

The Outfit Deets
Blouse: J Crew Blythe Blouse in Fiesta Purple
Shorts: Leather shorts from Tory Burch via ebay (love the chain link detail)
Boots: Diane Von Furstenberg Claude Suede booties (last year)
Necklace: Amrita Singh via Hautelook

Christmas Eve

Merry Christmas! We’ve had a wonderful holiday so far, church on Christmas eve, dinner at my in-laws and a rowdy game of Apples to Apples. Hubby and I had to wake the kids up this morning at 6:30am! I can’t believe my little one wasn’t up at 5am. Lots of presents and love! Now, we have a little break before heading over to the in-laws again for dinner.

Here’s what I wore for church.

The Outfit Deets
Blouse: J Crew silk Rhea Popover in Black
Pants: The Limited Editor Pants in Red
Shoes: Ann Taylor peep toe pumps
Necklace: Kate Spade Kaledioscope Bib Necklace (a Christmas gift!)

Neutrals

I felt so awesome in this outfit! I saw these leather pants in a magazine and wanted them desperately but they were only on one website, not in my size and way too expensive. But, I kept thinking about them, so I decided to turn to my go-to website–eBay. No luck.

But, I saved the search and all of a sudden (it took almost 3 months!) they appeared as a buy it now, in my size (well one size too big, but I had the waist taken in and they are now perfect!), for less than a quarter of the price at the store. I love the color as it isn’t a chocolate brown but a burnt sienna.

We had a wonderful cocktail get together at a family friend’s house and then hubby and I decided to take advantage of our babysitter and go out for a drink.

The Outfit Deets
Blouse: Zara
Leather Jeans: Elizabeth and James Diedrick Leather Pants
Shoes: J Crew Alecia Nude Heels
Bracelet: Alisa Michelle Feather bracelet
Necklace: Banana Republic
Purse: (seen below as I forgot to photograph it with the outfit) The Limited-last year

Ice Skating

We took the family ice skating in Winter Park last night, although only Sofia and I skated. Um…we weren’t very good, but it was a blast. It’s warm out still (I’m SO sick of this warm weather!!!) but cold (obv.) in the rink, so I layered. 🙂

Scarf: J Crew in Bright Dahlia

Grey, Checks and a Pop of Blue

My daughter had a field trip to see The Little Drummer Boy at a local marionette theater. I was a chaperone. I first put this outfit on with just the short sleeve sweater since it’s been in the high 70s here. But, the morning was cool so I decided to put the check blouse underneath. I like it better with the checked blouse.

Blouse: J Crew (last year)
Sweater: Short Sleeve Grey Sweater BCBG via Nordstrom Rack
Jeans: J Brand Skinnies
Boots: Frye Melissa Tie Boots
Necklace: Kate Spade via TJ Maxx
