This Friday is just one Friday closer to Christmas, WOOHOO! I’ve had a long week of lots of work and my back went out on Sunday so I’ve been slowly on the mend. That also means I only wear dresses because pants and belts can irritate my back issue even more – so I’ve been super girly all week. Unfortunately because I’ve been a bit slower than normal, I haven’t had enough time to do outfit photos. This morning I took some snapshots of myself in the pieces in the car and at my desk so I thought I’d share. A woman in the elevator asked me to open my coat and show her my entire outfit because my tights were just too cute.
Outfit
I bought this dress at the Gap the other day, probably the only thing that wasn’t on sale in the entire store. Isn’t that what always happens? I love the graphic black and white, it’s a heavier knit so I knew it would be perfect with tights and boots and it fit me so nicely. I love a knit a-line dress, you can do so much with it and I can dress it up or down. Since it’s a bold black and white I decided that I need a bold tight and I paired this dress with my favorite shade of green tights from We Love Colors. Green is festive, right?
Holiday
The nails were a last minute decision last night. I’ve been doing an at home gel manicure (that I need to write a post about) for the last few months and I love the lasting power but didn’t feel like taking the time to do it last night. So I pulled out a pack of my holiday edition Sally Hansen Salon Effects that I saw the other week in my CVS. I thought since I have a holiday party a little shimmer was mandatory!
Sparkle
And speaking of sparkle, I took this picture of the Abby Hat I showed you earlier this week and I just love the texture and the sparkle. LOVE IT!

 

So that’s what I’m wearing today to be holiday festive, what about you?
