This is the time of year when I almost get in car accidents, rubbernecking to look Christmas lights and peep in people's windows to see their holiday decorations.  Maybe a little creepy, but I think it's just an extension of my adoration for all things bright and shiny.  B and I had an action-packed weekend of holiday parties and gatherings with friends and this coming week is going to be a marathon of much of the same.  I'm kind of  exhausted already, but in a good way.

What do you all have planned for the holidays?

vintage necklace
vintage top
Anthropologie sweater

  5. So chic and simple, yet the chevron-ish detail on the tunic really seals the deal. Yes, I just said "seals the deal," like I'm Seth Rogan or something. Anyway, I love it; it's festive in an unexpected way. Have fun at holiday parties, yay!
