To Reminisce

Can you remember all the way back to Christmas Day 2010?


Today I was feeling nostalgic so I wore the outfit that I wore on Christmas this year. 
(please don't ruin my moment and point out the 4 day old elephant in the room)


Do you remember the gorgeous snow that made wearing a hat not only stylish but necessary?

Do you remember the slush and ice that made wearing these fabulous boots totally impossible and so they had to stay home and send their much more practical counterparts out instead?


That was such a fun day and this outfit was so cozy and comfortable.  I'm really glad that I got to wear it again today and relive those nearly forgotten memories.

Red Top: Express; Jeans & Sweater: Old Navy
Boots: Candies; Hat: ABC Trading Co.
Earrings: I EARNED them in a
Adorable Pin on my Hat: itsolive

I really did wear these exact clothes (with a minor boot substitution) 4 days ago on Christmas.  But the gray skies and chilly temps made the outfit pics my wonderful hubby took nearly unusable.  So, I decided to try again today when the sun came out.  The good news is that the blizzard kept us from spending time with friends on Christmas (that's not the good part - this next part is) so nobody (but my hubby and the movie theatre employees) saw my outfit.  That's why I didn't feel bad about wearing it again today.  Plus, when it's butt cold outside, I don't get all sweaty and stank up my clothes.  I love that I can wear them a couple of times without offending everyone around me.  Well, my smell doesn't offend people... winter's chill does nothing to stop my sarcastic, often biting sense of humor from offending. Consider yourself warned.

Nice to visit here. Next time I will come back.

My greetings.
Good luck!

Man, if I wore what I wore last year, it'd make me shudder. I think I got style where I had none before this year.
You, on the other hand, seem to possess an innate talent...

You look so cute in that hat! I tend to wear clothes more than once in the winter too, especially when I'm using them to layer, no one seems to notice, and the smell-test works wonders!

Merry Christmas!

Your hat is awesome! I'm kind obsessed with houndstooth. The boots are cute too, I love Candies.

I like your way of thinking
I love that hat and those boots too.
The temps here are soaring and it is hard to believe there was snow on the ground just 2 days ago as well.

Sorry about the snow, you look great though so don't worry. I love this houndstooth print hat, so pretty on you!

Love.That.Hat!! It is perfect for you. It would work for me too. :) The boots are great as well. We seem to share much of the same tastes - I would love to raid your closet!!
Nothing wrong with wearing the same outfit a few days later - especially in winter. I do it all the time!!
