tinsel and eskimo pies

tinsel and eskimo pies

tinsel and eskimo pies

In an eating cookies, drinking mulled wine, and watching stop motion Christmas movies-kind of mood...indefinitely...

tinsel and eskimo pies

How do you like our Christmas tree? I was surprised we actually had enough ornaments to cover a whole tree, but apparently we got quite a haul for Christmas last year. Nothing beats a real tree, but one of my friends, who came to visit recently, brought us this incredible fir-scented candle that I can't get enough of. Highly recommend it for insta-holiday cheer.

When you wear fur, do you find that perfect strangers want to touch the coat?

I encountered a student recently who was wearing a fur collar. I reached out and touched it impulsively, even though I didn't know her. I was mortified by my impulsive action and could only then tell her how much I admired the collar.

ps @ Terri - hahaha funny story!

Michal said...

Gorgeous heels! I love the print on the heel. I really like it paired with a simple and elegant outfit like you did. And your tree is beautiful, simple, elegant and stunning!

emilypanda said...

I've always liked those heels! That coat must really keep you warm right now! The wind in dc is crazy!

Eli said...

how cute! I've got a fake tree, convenient for apartment living sadly cause there is nothing like that real tree. But I got a little white tree up!

LyddieGal said...

Aww, what a cute tree! I can't wait to get mine this weekend.

Your mulled wine sounds quite tasty, it seems you are having the idea evening, spent in the most beautiful fur and sandals.

So adorable!! I love the tree and the heels. I've never had a REAL christmas tree (I'm jewish), but recently resolved to have a pinkish-purplish glittery tinsel secular-holiday-tree. it's a nice compromise :)

Kimberellie said...

and instantly I regret my decision to NOT try on the vintage fur jackets I came across today! But you are lovely. And I am saving for a vacation.

You have a BEAUTIFUL home, btw.

much love: Kimberellie

Hugging you would be like hugging a teddy bear, I highly approve.

I can't wait to get out of student housing so I can have a tree bigger than 12" tall, it's so puny and pathetic looking *sigh*.

I love mulled wine, adore it with a fiery passion, which is odd because I generally dislike wine apart from a red wine I tried last year which didn't make my face curl in on itself and I have no idea what wine it was.

Amy said...

Your tree is gorgeous, E... and so is that coat! Actually, this whole outfit is perfect!

Hope you are having a wonderful holiday season.
