Monthly Faves of 2010

Friday, December 31, 2010
2010 was my first full year of blogging my outfits every day. (Kind of.) I also feel like I've solidified my style preferences and blogging techniques. (Not really.) I think one of the best things about photographing your outfits every day is seeing your style evolve. The worst part is looking back at your style. Honestly, I wouldn't wear 98% of my previous outfits. They're so amateur. But I went back, cringed, and found the monthly winners. Which month is your favorite? Click on the pics to go to the post.
Good-bye, 2010! Bring it on, 2011!!

Last Shindig

Thursday, December 30, 2010
Tonight's our last night in Sac-town. Sad face. Not ready to go back to real life. For our last shindig with the fam, Chase and I (and my bro-in-law and mother-in-law) went to see my father-in-law perform in a little musical theatre show...and we got a little bored. We're 20-somethings going on 10.
And this is the hot 23 year-old me.

KUTE Clothes

This is round two of the KUTE Clothes sponsor post. You can check out the first one here.

Here is another KUTE item that I am itching to get my hands on. What do you think? I'm in love, honestly...which is weird because I HATE fringes. I don't care if it's the trend of the year and everybody's wearing it - I hate it! BUT! I could do this bag. The fringe is not all in-your-face but minimalAre you a fan of the fringe tassel? I think it adds some extra oomph!

Good news, ladies. This comes in THREE colors. I would probably pick gray. Not sure if it's because it's the featured color but after pondering this long and hard, I like the gray one best. Which color do you like?

This girl is NOT singing in the rain

It is rainy and dreary outside. Chase and I are going out to dinner for some Indian food tonight...one of my faves - the aftermath, not so much. I'll probably change out of this for something warmer. I'm obviously an idiot for wearing SANDALS in DECEMBER. But I thought I lived in sunny California?? Pout.

I'm wearing another Christmas present... I got this cardigan from my sister-in-law. She knows me so well...or she reads my blog a lot :). Either way, I love it! Buy one for yourself here as a late Christmas present/early New Years present. What? You don't do New Years presents? I just started it. It'll be a new tradition...just for me.

Christmas Shoes

Sunday, December 26, 2010
Finally... an actual outfit post! With all the Christmas festivities, I was so busy eating chocolates and playing with my niece's Wii (not my niece - just kidding... her too) that I forgot to put clothes on...or go outside.

Do you like my new Christmas present? They're on my feet. I never thought I'd jump on the clog-wagon but look at me now. I'm a liar. I've been wearing these brown sandal wedges for two years so I figured I should get a replacement pair. So I asked Santa....and my in-laws delivered. These babies do not disappoint. (My shoes...and my in-laws.)

Christmas is on a Saturday

Saturday, December 25, 2010

Merry Christmas!! Today's a Saturday and you know what that means... It's time to get to know each other! To keep the spirit of Christmas, I thought we should center the question today on presents...obvi. What is the best present you gave to somebody today? Chase and I got my sister-in-law a necklace with her kids' initials on it. I thought I was the bomb-diggity when she opened it. (Yes, I just used the word bomb-diggity. Isn't that so 90s?) We also got my other sister-in-law a temple recommend holder to help her obtain her goal of getting to the templeWhat about you? What present(s) were you excited to give today?

Merry Christmas!

What I packed for the holidays (and what I wore yesterday)

Thursday, December 23, 2010
As you guys know, Chase and I are in Sac-town for the holidays. We're here for two weeks. I thought it'd be fun to show you what I packed...especially since I first tried dumping my fave items into my suitcase but the resourceful side of me said, "You're an idiot," so I went back and packed items I'd be able to mix and match better. I've already created four outfits from these pieces (one, two, three, four is below).

Aaaand this is what I wore yesterday. It was a one-picture day. If you're a fashion blogger, you know what I'm talking about. It's when you look tolerable in one out of a gajillion pictures...also when your outfit looks better in your head than it does on you.

I bought stuff

Wednesday, December 22, 2010
This maxi dress was one of my purchases a couple days ago at Forever 21. They were having a huge BOGO sale so this dress ended up being $5. Two things I learned about myself that day:  1) I hate BOGO sales because that means you HAVE to get something else and 99% of the time, the sales rack sucks, 2) I hate big department-like stores (but I already knew that. This just confirmed it.) I swear I was in there for two hours looking for another sale item so I can just go home!!! I am a fast shopper and two hours in one store was hell. But the frugal side of me wouldn't let me go home until I found something. (And I did. I got something for my nephew for Christmas. Seriously, SO adorable. I'm not going to tell you because my sister-in-law reads this and she might make a peep.. ;) LY!)

I'm wearing a SLiM Motif beanie (courtesy of SLiM Motif - her shop isn't open anymore but try convoing her because I seriously LOVE this hat!!), Forever 21 maxi dress ($5), thrifted Talbots blazer ($4), Old Navy belt ($10), and flats from the Philippines ($7).

Thanks to all you guys for your help last night on Twitter!! I ended up buying this drapey sweater, these man pants, a gold necklace, and two teacup mugs for me and Chase! And I still have $10 left!

To celebrate this joyous occasion of my first purchases at Anthropologie, we went to an Italian restaurant. Chase got some risotto thing and I got ravioli with pears. It was super delish...as you can see by my half-eaten food. Totally not gross, Elaine.
