Outfits: Sly as a Fox

Welcome to 2015 darlings!

I know, I know, we are already a week into the new year so I am a bit late to the game with the welcomes and all, but I decided to go completely off the grid this holiday season and just savor every little moment of sugar plum goodness with the fam sans time in front of the screen.

Let's chat now.  How were your holidays?  Mine were swell.  Christmas is always my favorite time of year - what can I say?  I'm a sucker for traditions and oodles of family time, so that is just what I got. Christmas Eve always kicks off with a traditional German meal and Christmas morn sees our family around the table gobbling up my mom's famous french toast (this time made with panatone), topped with creme anglaise and fresh berries.  Oh and of course, I couldn't leave out the homemade sticky rolls and mimosas.   Yep, my mouth is watering now too.   Afterwards the Christmas story is read and the presents are opened and the day is just perfect in my book.

Hat: Modcloth (gift from mom)
Purse & Shoes: Vintage
Necklace: Vintage, belonged to grandmother
Tights: Anthropologie

Speaking of presents, it was super nice to arrive home to this little dress in my mailbox that Sheinside, so kindly sent my way.  I'm all into comfort these days as I chase an 18 month old around on a daily basis, so I was pleased as Christmas punch to find out that this was super soft and cozy (and good quality-thicker than it looks) just as I had hoped it to be.  It fit me like a dream too, to boot (though I will add that it's very short, so this gal, who is only 5'2, by the way had to wear shorts underneath to prevent anyone from getting a free show if the wind decided to blow her way).  Other than that, I will fully admit that I picked this little beauty out because I've been wishing to snag up a collared fit and flare type dress after seeing "What If" with Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan - who wears a blue one that is similar.  On a side note - if you like cutesy cute movies, I would totally recommend that one.  Um, yeah I do have a crush on Daniel Radcliffe (it's the blue eyes and British accent), but now I have a gal crush on Zoe Kazan as well, seriously though. 

(If you love this dress to - you can snag it up HERE. It just went on sale!! And for the record, I sized up since sizing runs small, which boded well for me)

So that's just about all.  It's a negative degree nightmare out there right now, so a cup of rose tea and fleece blankets are calling my name.  Wishing you one lovely week my friends.
Love bunches,
