Today’s Outfit: December 24, 2010

Where: Christmas Eve dinner at my parents’ house with my husband, the in-laws and my brother-in-law


Dress: H&M

Tights: Spanx

Booties: Sofft

Necklace: LOFT

Details: I spent most of today holed up in my parents’ basement covered in blankets trying to recover from my cold.  Once I awoke I sprang into helper mode only to find that my sweet hubby had offered to iron the table linens for my mother (that was my job) so that I could sleep longer.  How sweet.  

I have been wanting to wear this dress since I bought it at H&M last week and thought today was the perfect festive occasion.  I paired it with purple, almost royal blue tights and my little black booties.  I had originally thought the brown booties, but once I tried them on I thought they cut me off at the ankles.  I found this out through the use of my mother’s full length mirror!  Seriously, I need one of those.  Mine got lost somewhere on the move to Seattle, but this will be remedied as soon as we get home.  Stat!  

Have a very Merry Christmas (if that’s your holiday) and a festive holiday season otherwise.  I’ve been bugging my husband all day to let me open my Christmas stocking, but alas he won’t give in.  Good thing I only have a few more hours to wait…
