My new company had a Christmas/New Client celebration dinner last night, so it was night #2 in a row of dressing up. YAY for busy, dressed up weekends! As much as I love working at home most days, I definitely miss getting dressed up every day.

I am not normally a black-and-navy combo kind of girl but I'm liking this one. The tweed skirt is navy with black shot through it, so it's a good baby step in the black and navy mixing direction!

We had a super busy weekend. Saturday night we went out for sushi and to see the musical Wicked with friends. I love getting dressed up for nights out and was so happy the weather finally cooperated so that I could wear these shorts!

The shorts-and-tights combo was something I always loved on other people in magazines. I wasn't so sure that I could pull it off. But I think I finally found exactly the right pair of shorts to make it work for me.

As a side note: when did it become acceptable to attend a theater performance in jeans and a sweatshirt? I was completely shocked at how casually a lot of my fellow theater-goers were dressed. Are we really that lazy that we can't even put on a dress or slacks for a night out? Kind of takes away a little of the magic of a theater night when you look like you could be equally comfortable sitting on your couch watching Eastbound and Down.

It's been a cold, wet week here in Indy. Four straight days of snowy, icy weather make me so happy to be working from home again this winter!

I went out Wednesday night to do a little Christmas shopping and have dinner with friends. there was only one requirement for my wardrobe: STAY AS WARM AS POSSIBLE.

Knee socks? Check.

Faux fur lined boots? Check.

Double-knit cardigan? Check.

Mission accomplished.

I'm back home after a wonderful week with my loved ones in SC. I've been a bit spoiled seeing my family twice in November, all last week and again in just 9 days! I will be one sad girl in January when all the fun is over.

We had a busy day out and about yesterday despite the yucky weather. After a full morning, we met my bestie and her husband at a sports bar to watch the Steelers/Bengals game. Lucky for me, the Colts played on Thursday night so I didn't feel too bad supporting Nate's team in my Steelers tee. Although I did manage to cover it up just a tiny bit! HA! Can't be too unfaithful to my boys in Blue.

We had our small group Christmas dinner at a Brazilian restaurant downtown tonight. For weeks now I've been planning to try out my new sparkly tweed Express shorts with tights. Imagine my immense disappointment when I woke up this morning to driving snow that just never quit. Four inches of snow and four inch heels just don't mix. Boo.

So it was on to Plan B. Slightly less dressy but much warmer and less dangerous! Turns out Plan B was a blessing in disguise - the roomy dress came in very handy when I ate my weight in cheddar cheese puff biscuits at dinner!

I was also debuting my new blunt bangs. I went in for a trim this morning and decided there was no time like the present to give them a try. Don't know how long they'll last but at least I can finally say I gave them a go!

Top: Gifted (by Micayla!)

Denim: The Limited

Necklace: Amy Cornwell Designs

I always see button down shirts paired with sweaters in the store and love the look but can rarely stand to actually wear the combination in real life. Every time I try it I end up feeling either: 1. lumpy and bumpy or 2. all twisted up.

But I really wanted to pair this yellow sweater with this flowered top, so I sucked it up and made it work. It took me probably 15 minutes to get the top smoothed out under the sweater enough to not annoy me. That's way too much effort, in my opinion!

Is there a look you see in stores that you wish you were more comfortable wearing? Do you wear long sleeves under sweaters? How do you make it work? I'm open to suggestions!

Happy December! Indy rang in the new month with it's first accumulation of snow. Not a lot but enough to keep me bundled up when I had to run out for a bit. It's days like yesterday that make me glad I work from home again!

My favorite thing about the winter months is that I get to start layering again! I look through my closet and I'm positively giddy with the excitement of winter layering. Oh the possibilities!

What's your favorite thing about winter clothing?
