Holiday hustle

Its less than ten days until Christmas and the holiday hustle has begun. Between parties, shopping for presents, and work there leaves so little time for anything else. I just want to say thanks for all your amazing comments lately, and I really appreciate the time you spend making them and your thoughts. This weekend I will be doing a major replies catch-up, but posts will (hopefully) continue as usual. Setting aside the twenty or so minutes it takes to take and edit photos is getting squeezed shorter and shorter everyday. Its a fun time of year, but very hectic. Lately I've been shopping in my attic for "new" clothes that I can breathe some new life into. This blazer is from about six or seven years ago and I could never bear to part with it. It's been living in a box waiting to be taken out and worn. Also, I tried my best to show you the festive manicure I gave myself with red sparkles, but the pictures don't do it justice. Trust me, its enough glitter to make any 5th grader jealous. That last picture serves no purpose other than to show you an absurd face.
Milani and NYC Colors nailpolishes, Gap blazer, H&M mens tee, vintage Banana Republic belt, CLub Monaco skirt, BP tights, Aerosoles ankle boots, and my necklace is a vintage silver heart charm and my high school class ring which make a pretty jingle sound when I walk.

  16. I absolutely love this blazer!!
    I'm on a year abroad so I could only bring a certain number of clothes with me, but it makes all my old clothes seem so much more desirable!!
    You are clever not to throw things out. I always find myself lusting after things I threw out years before!!
    Great outfit :]]

  25. I normally don't like too much color matching in outfits, but I think yours is just perfect. It has just the right amount of red details. That skirt is great.
