I haven't participated in an Everybody, Everywear challenge in a few months, but when I saw that the December prompt was sequins and sparkle, I definitely wanted to play along. Might not be a bad one to check out, if you're looking to add a little shine to the holiday wardrobe...

Speaking of holidays, I started wrapping my Christmas presents last night, and if that's not the most time consuming activity right now, I don't know what is. Luckily, I sugared myself up on some eggnog for the evening, so I was able to power through a good portion of the gift pile.
That said, though, I think everyone is just getting gift cards next year. So much easier, you know?

(Oh, who am I kidding? Gifts for EVERYONE! I love shopping for Christmas presents for my family...there's just something about thinking you've found that one perfect gift, I guess.)

  5. This is such a cute outfit! I love the sparkles and red. Wrapping gifts is actually one of my favourite Christmas tasks lol. I wrapped all of mine and half of my Aunt's giant pile. Maybe like 6 or 7 hours altogether? I'd do more if I had them lol.

  6. I just love that skirt AND that top!! I really need to invest in something sparkly, but I'm just not sure I can pull it off at work. Though, maybe I could? The kids would love it, I'm sure.

  10. Your tank is so cute!

    My family usually does giftcards with a gift or two if we know someone really wants XYZ. We're all a hard bunch to buy for.
