December 15, 2010: Keeping Tradition Alive

Everything that I wore yesterday was new to 260 Days, No Repeats even the shoes! After the holidays I am definitely going to do some sort of theme week; forgotten shoes, new to you, maybe both but, I digress... I love the idea of this outfit but, it wasn't the most comfortable thing in the world. The skirt is a little small but, also a little short. It was very awkward sitting in a meeting full of program directors and assistant directors while checking to make sure that I wasn't flashing too much thigh! Note to self: Don't wear this skirt again until you have shrunk a few inches or lose a few pounds, thanks! Also, don't be fooled by BF's picture taking cues or your face will freeze like that...

The only thing that was comfortable about the outfit was the shoes. I haven't worn them in a while but, only because I had forgotten about them (not an excuse I know) not because they weren't practical, comfortable, and stylish. I even wore them while traipsing around midtown after work to fulfill a Christmas tradition of BF's and mine: getting an ornament from Saks Fifth Avenue and seeing the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. We have gotten a Christopher Radko ornament each year since we moved in together and each of them signifies an event/s from the year. This year it was this one to commemorate our trip to the tree farm which my Mom later informed me was not the first time, I went when I was very young. I'm sure there are pictures somewhere... What are your favorite christmas traditions?
  • Top: ivory sweater, Old Navy with a beige tank top underneath, for the modesty
  • Bottom: purple houndstooth skirt, GAP
  • Shoes & Accessories: brown snake skin kitten heel shoes, Coach; brown tights, Merona for Target; moonstone earrings, V'ta Jewelry; moonstone and peridot (my birthstone) necklace, Pennyweights/gifted; brown Loeffler Randall bag, Target (same bag different color here)


  1. I love this look! The skirt looks super cute, but if you're not comfortable in it, then I guess it doesn't work for you.

    Also, a million thanks for my new header! I'll give you a proper thanks in an email coming soon.

  2. This outfit is gorgeous, yet cozy looking. That sweater and skirt are darling!

  3. Love the shoes! Sorry to hear the skirt made you feel uncomfy. I recently let go of one like that, but quickly found a similar (but longer) replacement for $4.

    My fave Christmas tradition has become my husband's family's Dirty Santa. The game is always fun, fair and everyone ends up with something they enjoy.

  4. I think you look really cute in that skirt, sorry it's a bust!

    Love your ornament tradition, it's soooooo sweet. and the little snowmen are adorable.

    Chic on the Cheap

  5. I think the skirt looks great! I like that you wore same colored tights with your shoes - it makes your legs look long!


Thanks for your feedback! I really look forward to hearing from you...
