Best of 2010

I'm jumping on the bandwagon and posting my top ten outfits of 2010.

1. I pretty much copied this outfit from Kendi Everyday. Maybe that's why it's so good.

2. I felt like a movie star for this one.

3. In my hair growing out saga, this was one of the first times I managed an updo.

4. Who says teachers can't dress up for prom too. This was also my first non-headless picture posted on my blog.

5. This has everything an outfit needs; a bow, lace and a cardigan.

6. I do wear pants sometimes.

7. Easy breezy summer wear and a really good hair day.

8. I like this one because I finally got things together and wore one of my scarves. I have a huge collection but rarely wear them.

9. A few of my favorite things; my bow belt and a Jackie cardigan.

10. Another day, another Jackie cardigan.

Thanks for sticking with me and happy new year blogging world!

Happy Holidays

Christmas Tree

I hope everyone is having a great holiday week. Here is our very bare living room decked out for Christmas. The living room now features my Christmas present, ghost chairs! All I wanted for Christmas was ghost chairs and my house painted. I got the ghost chairs but the painting hasn't arrived so I'm still slaving away at it. There are no outfit shots for this week because I am either in my painting clothes or my juicy pants. Not very fashionable stuff!

It's a Wet Christmas.

December 21, 2010

Cardigan: J Crew
Tank: Banana Republic
Skirt: Ricki's
Shoes: Naturalizer - They're not the same old black or brown ones. These are new and they're gray!

It's been a crazy few days weather wise in my part of the woods. Sometimes during this time of year, buses come early to take kids home from school because of snow and bad roads. Today the buses came early because it has been raining so much that bridges and roads were flooded out. Is it possible to get a rain day? I might find out tomorrow. . . It's not looking like a white Christmas for us.

Pretty Tree

December 20, 2010

Cardigan: J Crew
Skirt: J Crew
Shoes: Naturalizer

I'm not sure what I'm looking at in this picture. Perhaps the empty spot on the top of the tree. I"m not sure what to put up there for a tree topper. It has to be white and sparkly.

We finally got our real tree this weekend. The fake one is in the basement with colored lights and mismatched ornaments. It has been up since November. This is the "pretty tree". I love the smell of real trees. It's making me start to get excited!!!!

Double Blurg

December 16, 2010

Blouse: Martin and Osa
Skirt: Ricki's
Shoes: Naturalizer

Will Christmas vacation ever come? I'm teaching right up until December 23 (blurg) and someone thought it would be a good idea to send home progress reports on December 20 (double blurg). School is keeping me busy and yet there are also so many home and family things to do as well, like get ready for our first ever turkey dinner (weeeee). The big day is soon approaching and I am so not ready (blurg!!).

Sometimes Wearing Polyester is Just Easier

December 13, 2010

Sweater: Sears
Skirt: Ricki's
Shoes: Naturalizer

I have been sick for the past few days and have been very unfashionable. I"m on the mend but still feeling a bit "off". Today's outfit was all about ease and NOT steaming or ironing. Sometimes polyester is just easier.

A Ricki's Skirt and Coupon Codes

December 2, 2010

Sweater: Banana Republic
Skirt: Ricki's
Shoes: Naturalizer

Another Ricki's item. My first order went so well, I placed another one last weekend. It helped that they emailed me a free shipping code as an apology for my package taking so long to arrive. It took only a week to arrive and really wasn't that long of a wait. But I really appreciate free shipping. My package arrived with more coupon codes and it looks like they are multi-use so here they are for your shopping pleasure.

Free shipping: SHIPD23
Free shipping on purchases over $50 at Bootlegger: BPWEBFREE and Cleo: CPWEBFREE.

All codes are good until December 23. Enjoy Canadian readers.
