Blouse: Goodwill (Wet Seal) — Long-sleeved tee: Old Navy — Dress: Gift — Tights: Target — Shoes: Thrifted (Born) — Necklace, bracelet, and ring: Gift
Murry Chrsmuss, folks! I see around that a lot of bloggers like to wear all-new clothes on Christmas, which is a fun and cute thing! In my case, the only new thing about this outfit is the necklace, which was a sweet gift from Tia. (I’ll have to get a better close-up picture of it sometime, it’s got an adorable owl on it.)
But this was the first time I wore this blouse after thrifting it a couple of months ago, because a red mesh blouse with floofy sleeves isn’t so everyday. Perfect for a nice festive holiday, though!
Mike and I had a pretty busy Christmas, altogether. We got up and went to do presents at his mom’s house, then to his dad’s house for lunch, then to Tia’s parent’s house to do more presents and screw around, and then back to Mike’s mom’s house for dinner and a goodbye before we jaunted off to Mexico. Woof!
When I say we screwed around, I mean it. Braden took outfit pictures for both me and Tia, and we spent way too long on both parts, but it was fun. (The umbrella is part of Braden’s photography equipment. Props are definitely a plus when someone else is taking your picture and you’re feeling a little self-conscious.)
I think I accidentally attributed these shoes to Naturalizer when I last posted an outfit including them on here, but they’re definitely Born. It was Tia’s dad’s idea that the leaves on the bottom are worth featuring, and they are pretty cute. This is one of the first times I’ve done outfit pictures with an audience; it’s a little weird, but also entertaining. Snarkiness is some of my favorite things about the Shelley family, and I hope they never change.
