Dave and I spent Christmas with his family in New Jersey. While I was packing, I checked the weather and was shocked to see 72 degrees with rain in the forecast for Christmas day. What?! Well, I’m not one to turn down warm weather, so I happily packed a bunch of clothes that would be more suited for spring or summer.
I thought it would be a riot if I wore my umbrella print dress, since it is so seasonally inappropriate. I have had this dress since May, and I absolutely adore it! I couldn’t believe that I have not featured it on the blog yet.
I really wanted to go outside in the light and take some proper outfit photos, but it was all nasty and dark. Plus, some relatives showed up and I didn’t really feel like doing it with them there! If I think of it, I’ll take some photos the next time I wear this dress (although it’s back to being cold now, so I doubt I will be able to wear it anytime soon!)
Dave really liked the pic above. He caught me off-guard, mid-turn. (I was prepping for my pose in the next photo). I was also trying to show off my new shoes from ModCloth, AND the pickle ornament on the tree. We always do the Christmas Pickle hunt (more on that here), and I win every year! I should go pro 🙂
I’ll be back tomorrow for a New Year’s Eve post!
