In the last week or so, I took two fashion photos that were full of whimsy, and I thought it would be fun to share them, to show that style doesn’t always have to be “serious.”
Who says you can’t wear a brooch with your Christmas jammies? And this basset hound fits right in with the scene! Really, I just wanted an excuse to wear this adorable guy one more time, but I was also very cozy in my new pajamas!
I was so excited about my new Splendette glitter bangles that I tried them on straight out of the box, tags and all! I also had to go with a whimsical pose in front of the Christmas tree for maximum sparkle and glitter!
Time to take a look at this year’s Christmas outfits (which were, admittedly, very similar to last year’s)!
On Christmas Eve, I wore the same black and purple lace dress that I’ve been wearing every Christmas Eve for close to a decade, and of course my best Christmas brooch. I did change it up a bit with some some new Splendette starburst Duchess Bangles, though!
On Christmas Day, I wore my holiday harlequin Genevieve dress from Pinup Girl Clothing, which is the most Christmas-y piece of clothing I own. I added a bow belt from Torrid, which wraps the whole outfit up like a present, plus Splendette Duchess Bangles and the Christmas earrings that arrived the day after Christmas last year, my favorite Christmas brooch (again), and a sparkly Lux de Ville mini hatbox handbag:
Possibly the most notable fact is that I wore heels two days in row for the first time since breaking my ankle last year…and both outfits certainly looked better without the ankle brace I was wearing last Christmas!
Here we are at the penultimate day of Advent already! Bag 36 of Lego Hogwarts Castle included pieces for the roof…tomorrow, it’s just finishing touches, and then the whole thing will be put together!
Tonight’s wine was a Cabernet Sauvignon from Chilé, which I enjoyed.
Since I have worn each of my brooches at least twice this Advent, Bunny let me borrow her newest brooch from Erstwilder’s current Christmas collection today…wasn’t that thoughtful of her, and isn’t it adorable?
Bag 30 of Lego Hogwarts Castle included the pieces to build the Whomping Willow and the Flying Ford Anglia, plus the final minifig…Rowena Ravenclaw:
Tonight’s wine was a Merlot from Chilé. Before I started this Advent calendar, I don’t think I even realized that Chilé was a wine-producing country, but I’ve had a few varieties from there now, so not only have I enjoyed the wine, I’ve also learned something!
A basset hound brooch on a leopard print shirt…too much animal in one outfit? I think not!
