Deck The Halls

I mainly posted this picture just to show you a little more of my Christmas decorations.  It's not like a lot of people come to my house to see them, so y'all are my guests! (Side note, isn't it sad that people don't "visit" anymore? I remember when we were kids always going to a cousin's house. The parents "visited" and the kids played.  No one really does that anymore.) Anyway, putting out Christmas decorations is a JOB, isn't it? And it's a shame to go to all that work and no one really see it! I think we should all  just have an open house party here in blogger world!!

 Green stripe top: Ann Taylor Loft
Blue sweater: Work
Cream pants: Liz Claiborne
Shoes: Born

 I'm trying to make this limited wardrobe a little different everyday.  Whatever I'm outwardly wearing, whether a blouse or a sweater, has to have the logo on it. And I have to keep in the team colors of royal blue, white, black, light blue, light green tops and the pants can only be in the khaki color family, black, blue, dark brown or gray. Shoes have to be brown, gray or black. No peep toe. (And my tat can't show!) I know it doesn't really SOUND that limited, but it is.  So I've been trying to add jewelry, a scarf, a belt and patterned hose/tights to make it more me. One of the guys just couldn't understand why my belt was knotted instead of buckled.  He just shook his head and said, Only a girl would think of doing something like that. LOL  Well, it was just another way of trying to "deck" myself!
