pre-holiday sparkles








Typically, I refuse to tune into the nonstop caroling stations, peruse the holiday section or possess any desire to utter Christmas cheer before Thanksgiving. This year however, I have developed a shift in my attitude and strangely embraced the upcoming festivities rather prematurely. For the past few weeks I had to actively stop myself from shouting out my excitement about this to passing strangers. In an effort to be a tad less obvious (and annoying), I have expressed my delight through small ways: sparkly nail polish, soft snowflake sweaters and holiday red touches. Something I consider the perfect transition into the month's upcoming celebrations.

  3. I'm being a little more open towards the holidays, too. Christmas is my favorite holiday ever, but that doesn't mean I want to start celebrating it in October. I'm finally getting into it more now...I still dislike the music, though!

    Sparkly nail polish and red lips are so great this time of year, aren't they?!

  5. Ooh, I do like the sparkly nailpolish, and the red bag with the black and white! I'm not usually into holiday cheer, but I've already started plotting about going outdoor skating. I think blogging makes a person get out more!

  8. I think its okay to start shifiting into holiday mode mid novemeber, otherwise i'll never get to watch all the movies i need to before christmas.
    plus, red nails, red bags, and sparkle can keep on going all through the winter.

    love the sweater, such a pretty piece!

    &Thanks for your lovely comment,
    I'm so glad you said that, 'cause I was really wondering weather it would be some great combi or it would be some huge epic fail haha!
    One problem is that it's turning so cold, and then I really have to come up with some great longsleeve ideas (if you get what I mean ^^)
