The Road Before Us

Sweater: Vintage (in shop here)
Skirt: Swapped with Jessi, of Haircut & General Attitude
Floral Crown: Gift from sister
Tights: Modcloth
Socks: UO
Boots: Marshall's









Well the Christmas countdown has begun (if it hasn't already started) and it's pretty safe to say that since the world is obviously not ending today (I never once believe it was), I need to get on the ball with the baking and wrapping all in preparation for Christmas Eve back in my hometown.  These past few days have been chock full of peppermint tea and fleece blankets but I am now feeling better and ready to take on the holiday tasks that lie before me.  Looks like whipping up a couple batches of my grandmother's Pfefferkuchen are in my future - mmmm, I can smell the gingerbread and chocolate now.


The weather is cold as Vanilla Ice so I'm all about the comfy cozy, my cheeks are rosy kind of oversized sweaters that keep my nose from turning red as Rudolph and my phalanges from falling off.  As for the skirt - nope, it's not mine.  The very lovely Jessi of Haircut and General Attitude sent it my way to swap and I've already found numerous ways to remix it.  I just couldn't help myself as I'm a sucker for anything that resembles mint flavored ice cream.



Here's how she wore it:  




So that's just about all - I need to get started in the baking department, so wish me luck - I feel like a Keebler Elf.  Off, off and away I go!

Love Bunches,

  16. How do you make vintage sweaters like that look SO GOOD? You look cute as a button! I love the lavender and minty color together, it looks sublime :) Have fun getting in the Christmas spirit my dear!

  17. Yay, glad to hear you're feeling better! And i LOVE this outfit. Like loooove it head to toe!! These colors are absolutely perfect together, and I love the white ribbon from your headband trailing in the back.

    I love how Jessi's is a summer look and yours is a winter one. Both are gorgeous. PS your idea of making a calendar from Shutterfly was pretty genius! One other blogger said she had pictures of her boyfriend and his brother goofing off with his siblings and framed it for his parents. I thought that was equally as sweet. So thanks for the ideas!! :)
