in a holiday mood

Well I'm back from break, but maybe just as tired as when I left.  Does that every happen to you guys, where you come back less relaxed after a vacation?  And the sucky part was that I had all this work hanging over my head throughout break, so I was never completely at ease and relaxed.  All right, enough of the negativity- I had a great time in New York with my suitemate, did lots of good shopping, and had a very yummy Thanksgiving meal.  I'm also excited about all the things that I bought online that will slowly be arriving in my mailbox- I love getting packages!  I'm finally starting to get something accomplished, starting with writing this post and continuing with decorating my suite for the holidays.  I absolutely love Christmas and I'm one of those people who starts listening to Christmas music the day after Thanksgiving! (Click here to listen to one of my all-time faves- although someone just pointed out to me how creepy the lyrics really are!).  Here's an outfit that I wore for a holiday dinner- I really love the simple elegance of this long-sleeved dress.  Also, these boots have an interesting story.  When I saw them online, I was desperately in love with them, but I didn't want to buy them without trying them on because I wasn't sure if they would suit my foot (I don't like shoes that make my feet look any larger than they are- I wear a size 9 or 10).  However, when I looked to see if they were in stock in a store near me, it said that they weren't available in any store within 50 miles of me.  Needless to say, I was really bummed (when I want something, I get really obsessed- it's a very bad habit).  I ended up going to Target that weekend anyway because I need to pick up some stuff and decided to check the shoe section, and get this- they had only one pair of these boots and they were in my size!  I couldn't believe it!  So that's my little tale of how the shopping gods smiled down upon me =)

dress and tights- Forever 21, boots- Target, earrings- old





I want to hear all about your Thanksgiving and Black Friday experiences- do tell! :)
