It’s Friday, y’all, and that means a very busy weekend, as I get ready for Christmas and a cross-country move.  But, as one of my friends said, “sleep is overrated”.

The weather is actually unseasonably warm today – I’m not sure how I feel about that.  But, a few days ago when I wore this outfit, it was not at all warm, so I layered with long sleeves, wool, tights, and boots.

I love this wool skirt, one of my favorite examples of patience at work.  I almost bought it when it was full price at JCP a few years ago, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it.  Low and behold, a few weeks later, the clearance rack decided to bless me, and the black-and-white-plaid-with-the-pink-belt skirt was mine! My philosophy is generally that if you wait for something to go on sale and it disappears, you didn’t really need it in the first place.  With few exceptions, that principle has been stretching my money and expanding my wardrobe for years.

Thanks to a bracelet with inspirational colors, I decided to pair a deep green, almost teal, shirt with the pink accessories, keeping the bottom half of my look simple and warm!

I hope everyone has a great weekend – let’s go Christmas shopping!

Skirt: JCPenney
Shirt: Old Navy
Sorry, guys – I don’t remember the rest…
