Hope everyone has a wonderful holiday. I'm pretty excited. If only I could have one of these dresses to wear for Christmas...

Current favorite Christmas song: "O Tannenbaum" by the Vince Guaraldi Trio (from a Charlie Brown Christmas).
Jazz piano just makes me so happy.

"hot" pocket

It was a balmy 50 degrees today, so I broke out the lace leggings. And tomorrow it's going back down to like 17. No kidding. Just a little pocket of warmth to enjoy today...

Yesterday I did a "closet cleanse," which is to say I organized it and got rid of stuff I'm tired of. It's pretty invigorating, and also great for finding things that you actually want to wear again. (Like the above blue dress). Maybe my newly organized closet will help me with my daily problem of blankly standing in front of my closet thinking, "I have nothing to wear."

...No, it probably won't.

first snow

Yesterday it snowed all day long, but not so much that big fluffy snow, just the wet messy stuff that didn't really accumulate much. Still, it's snow, and you can't beat that little-kid feeling inside when you wake up and look out the window and the world is white. AND, we just put up our christmas tree and i am stupid happy about it. What is it about a pretty tree with lights and stuff on it that makes your home just 10 times more cozy? I wanted to take a picture and post it (because I'm a dork), but the photo can't really capture it, so you'll just have to believe me that it's good. I'm pretty excited about christmas. Obviously.

Wearing an Urban Outfitters vest and earrings, American Eagle shirt, Target Leggings, and secondhand boots.

Also, I got this candle I'm crazy about, and it could quite possibly make your holidays better if you buy it. It's from Target and the scent is called Balsam Cedarwood, and the brand is Snowfall Splendor. It's what winter should smell like.
