Polkadots and Peacock

Hello little Christmas elves! How are your holiday plans coming along? Who's done with all their gift shopping? Who hasn't even started yet?

*raises hand*

Every year, I swear I'll get started early, and every year I'm one of the idiots fighting traffic and standing in lines and breaking out in a terrible itchy holiday stress rash.        

Ok, maybe I'm the only one with the rash. Don't judge.

Moving right along: Matthew and I just got back from a nice long weekend at the ranch and some much needed R&R. Exactly what the doctor ordered as far as getting rid of last week's yucky cold goes. While there, I even managed to wrangle my husband for a little outfit shoot during a trip into town. I really love this sweet polkadot shirt I just bought at Target, though I'm sad to say I don't see it anywhere online. Here's another really cute one I'm thinking about going for too. Yay for Target!

  6. Good luck with your shopping.. I'm one of those anal ones that gets it done on Black Friday. But then I get bored and continue to shop until I'm absolutely broke- so you're way is probably smarter in the end.

    I love those green pants! And your hair is so long & beautiful!

  7. I love that top, especially the back! Is it just me, or is your hair darker?

    1. I think it just looks darker because of the lighting... it was really overcast out, and I usually do my picture at sunset with backlighting, which makes my hair look more golden! ;P

  14. Yeah, I STILL have to Christmas shop! I got something for my sister and brother, but I have no idea what to get my mom, and my step-mom. So I have only this week left! But I'll get it done.
    Glad you and Matthew had a weekend together. That's kind of funny, because the family I work for went away this weekend, and I had to work overnight. But it was fun, so it wasn't that big a deal. It just goes to show how similar our lives can sometimes be :) hehe.
    But I love your outfit! I like your purse too. And the pants. One time I was considering getting 'color' jeans like that, but then I wasn't sure because it was a little after the 'trend' of it. But they'll still out there, so I can always change my mind.
