Almost Christmas!

Today for my last day of work before Christmas, I went with a casual red and green theme for The Perpetual Student's Wife's Holiday Look Link Up. Wearing red and green together for the holidays may be dorky and cliché, but whatever. I enjoy theme dressing. Besides, they're olive pants (or basil pesto according to the website), so it could be worse. Um, also, pardon the mess in the background. That's where I was wrapping Christmas presents.

Cardigan: LOFT via swap; Turtleneck: Kohl's; Cords: Old Navy; Boots: Mr. Shoe;
Headband: Zing Accessories; Bracelet and Brooch: c/o Wantable

I still have a few things I need to do before the big day arrives (unfortunately, sending out Christmas cards is not going to happen this year...again), but I am fully in the Christmas spirit.

Christmasy things accomplished:
  • Put up and decorated a Christmas tree!
  • Nearly finished Christmas shopping. Just a few more easy things to pick up.
  • Wrapped presents
  • Listened to all my Christmas CDs, which I'm sure I will continue doing until Christmas is over
  • Watched Love Actually
  • Watched Santa Claus Is Coming to Town and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with Bridget
  • Just today remembered to put our fake mini tree on the front porch. Better late than never. We never did put up lights this year...we're slackers.

Still yet to do:
  • Make Christmas cookies
  • Attempt to fix this dress to wear to church Christmas Eve
  • Mend something for my dad while I have the sewing machine out
  • Buy my brother's gift
  • Clean the house for company

Four more days!


  1. I know we were supposed to be looking at the outfit, and the tree, but I love your chair!

  2. Aww so cute! I like to wear festive colors during certain holidays so I don't think it's cliche ;)

    Happy Holidays!

  3. You look adorable! Love the colors.

  4. Those booties are killer! I love love love how incredibly festive your outfit and your home are. Thanks for linking up, such fun!
