Typically I don't set out to coordinate my daily ensemble with my mantle OR my Christmas decor, but today, it was a happy accident. Yep, the mantle in the kitchen may be the ONLY place we have Christmas decorations this year, because I have no doubt that any tree I attempt to put up would be taken down systematically and immediately by The Trips (the little jerks). Hopefully NEXT year we can do the real deal.
Shirt (originally from F21) and jacket (from Loft) are both courtesy of Goodwill. Speaking of Loft, meet me at camera three.
I have never been a huge fan of Ann Taylor or Loft, despite the fact that I see people wearing their stuff, think it's cute, and when I ask them, am always surprised that it's Loft. Then I go in to find said article, try it on, and it looks like crap. Not because it IS crap, just because I apparently have an un-Loft-like body. Or maybe I'm just so used to seeing it in junior-style F21 stuff. Until today.
