WIW: White Christmas

This year, white feels festive (particularly when combined with purple).  But pictures have been pretty difficult to get.

Here's what I wore Christmas eve to church and dessert (it was still a casual affair):  Cream-out with silver shoes and jewelry and a purple coat.  (Jewelry included both a necklace and earrings, but were added after I took the outdoor pic).

Today (for one side's extended family Christmas) I'm wearing white jeans with an eggplant sweater, gray boots and my caffeine molecule earrings that my husband gave me for Christmas.  Pardon the awkward pose in #3.  I'm too lazy to retake the pic....

All comments welcome!  I felt festive in both outfits :)

WIW: windy busy days

I'm still lurking around here most days - just not taking time to take, crop and upload photos :(

I have a free moment this evening, and I thought I'd drop by and wish you all a Happy Holidays, and share a few of the things I've been wearing, since I actually copied the contents of my camera on to my hard drive today :)

So here's a whole bunch.

#1 cape and printed jeans
#2 pleated skirt with biker jacket
#3-4 lumberjack vest with two pants styles and new Danskos!
#5 citron and gray sweater that is a very happy sweater for me this winter.
#6-7 cozy sweaterdress with coat (coat is purple, but looks black in photo).  I tried to make it more festive with a sparkly scarf and jewelry.
#8 tunic sweater and leggings - felt great when sick.
#9 trying out the turtleneck under a plaid shirt ensemble - I think I need a turtleneck with a tighter cowl.
#10 sparkly sweater and floaty split skirt (in the wind) dressed down with a jean jacket.
#11 shiny silver/taupe vest over black (vest is reversible - I wore the taupe side out)
#12 eggplant, burgundy and grey.  
#13 burgundy with citron - didn't realize that the sweater stuck to my underlayer so badly until I saw this photo.  Wonder if I was like this all day.  This color combo was inspired by merwoman, and really made me happy.
#14 mixed blues and greens (teal cardigan over huntergreen sweater and paisley print blue/greens jeans)

Many of these photos feature my new Dansko books.  They have a cutout, and I'm finding it way too fun to wear wild socks with them.  Sometimes I even coordinate my socks to my outfit.  They are almost as comfy as my Dansko clogs, and I can wear and walk in them for a full 16 hour day, so they are winners!  I'm hoping that the not-so-fuddy-duddy shoes up my style a bit :)

Merry Christmas to you all!
