Bring it on

Twas the day before Thanksgiving and I have to work.  The Pants Monkey is asleep, all snug in our bed, with visions of a lazy day dancing in his head.  And I am jealous!

Oh well, at least I look cute!  Even if these purples don't totally match up, I felt like they still kind of work together somewhat.  I'm kind of excited I'm managing to extend the life of this maxi skirt a bit beyond summer.


Sweater - Daisy Fuentes, from Lynne
T-shirt - Herbergers
Skirt - Old Navy
Necklace - S&D with MMD buttonflower
Earrings - swap w/CC
Barrette - C. Jane Create
Boots - Payless 

I also realized I'm wearing a lot of gifted items today - all through this wonderful blogging community.  That makes me smile.  You are all wonderful people and I am so thankful for each and every one of you!!


I have to be honest, up until about yesterday I was feeling a little blase about the upcoming holidays and that it was all happening so fast, too fast, but today I am giddy.  I am so excited for Thanksgiving and then for mine and Mr. Monkey's birthdays this weekend.  And I'm starting to get excited for Christmas.  It will be a crazy time, but I'm ready to embrace it!  Bring it on!!


I'll probably post my Thanksgiving outfit and I'll be here on Friday too, gotta pass the time that day somehow!  But if you won't be around the blogosphere for awhile, I wish a very blessed and Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!  Be safe if you are traveling!  EDITED TO ADD  - Breaking News, I just found out I have the day off on Friday now!!  I won't be doing any shopping but you can believe I'm very happy to now have a FOUR DAY WEEKEND!!!

  1. Purple is a good color on you. I have to work too, though fortunately I can work from home since everyone else is on vacation.

  16. Who cares if they don't match - they go great! I think purples are one of the most difficult colors to put together with things, but this works just perfect. Also you make me want a similar skirt every time you wear that one. It's probably one of my favorite pieces on you.

    I love that purple skirt so much. Your whole look is gorgeous, but I have a passionate love of stripes.
