Before my vacation

There was no plan to take a vacation from blogging, but the holidays are a time to relax and have fun. Also, blogging + wine usually makes for some kind of consequence (usually a drunken rant). I've gotten a bit behind on this, but here is what I wore on the 23rd (or was it the 22nd?) to go to work. This was a great work outfit, and I'm finding that these tailored shorts are a nice alternative to dress pants with a little more versatility. Adding tights or a fun belt makes them fun but since they are so tailored its still office appropriate. Plus, if you haven't tried shorts with tights, you should just because its so comfortable, like a skirt you can run around and climb fences in (or in my case jump up and down on the bed). As a warning, this post also contains ridiculousness and my fantastically cute Sanrio Chococat watch.
Gap princess tee, H&M wool shorts, AA tights, (black flats not pictured from Target), H&M sweater, Juicy necklace, Sanrio watch from McDonalds via Ebay, Gap bow belt from their HUUUUGEEE sale they've been having
