Bracelet: gifted Tiffany and Co.

Earrings: Mainstreet Marketplace

Where: errand running and to the studio.

Why:  With what’s currently in my closet, this is as close as I can get to a monochromatic look, something I’ve been loving lately.  I picked up this shirt on sale a few weeks ago and didn’t realize how perfectly it went with these jeans until I got it home.  I love the pairing — especially with the world’s most perfect boots.  I wear them all the time — they’ve got a slight wedge to give me some height, they’re nice and tall to keep me warm in these Wisconsin winters and they go with just about everything.

I got these earrings shopping with my aunt in her hometown when I was in college for $10.  The triangle shape drew me in and now they’re in my ears probably 75% of the time.  They were the inspiration for my trillion cut engagement ring and they’re getting a little worn — I’d love to find another pair but it’s proving to be a difficult task!  Do you have a great cheap jewelry find?  I’d love to hear about it!

Necklace: gifted

Nails: Essie Repstyle

Where: errand running

Why:  I had been searching for pieces just like this since a Piperlime ad that paired tan and red orange together — I love the pairing!  And amazingly, both pieces are major steals from the after-Christmas sales.  I got this sweater from GAP, on sale with a coupon, for less than $2.  And these pants were the same thing — on sale for $13.50, with a $10 off coupon, $3.50.  Wahoo!

In other news, how cute is this necklace?  I know it’s cheesy given my profession, but I love pretty much any piece of jewelry that involves a camera.  Would you wear jewelry that matches what you do for a living?

Where:  Christmas at my grandparent’s house

Why: My grandparent’s house for Christmas always involves grazing all day — we get there for lunch and stay through to dinner with presents, football and games between the meals, but much of the food is left out all day.  I knew I wanted to wear something comfortable that could expand with me and this sweater is perfect for that — oversized and baggy, and really warm.  While skinny jeans aren’t the most conducive to a day of eating these have a lot of stretch to them and I knew that if need be I could unbutton them(who hasn’t done that from time to time?!) and the loose sweater would keep my secret.  Because we’d be making lots of trips carrying things in and out of the house I wore my flat brown boots — they kept me warm and kept me balanced on the snowy/icy driveway.

Does your family dress up for Christmas celebrations or keep it casual?
