Christmas catch-up

I know, I know, where have I been? Well not only did Christmas happen (which meant a little bit of a break), but then I got sick. I'm not even completely over it! I'm nearly there, though, so I'm trying to put some effort into my outfits again. Here are a few outfits that I failed to post around Christmas.
From Christmas Eve.
We had a lovely time with Husband's parents, eating our traditional Christmas Eve meal.
Black scarf - Present from Mom, Sweater - Banana Republic, Skirt - Anthropologie, Knee-high socks - Forever 21, Booties - Nine West
And we exchanged presents. I received this monogrammed bracelet from my In-Laws.
Christmas Day itself was also fabulous, filled with more family, more food, more presents.

Christmas Day's outfit was not too fabulous, just simple. Sweater - J.Crew, Jeans - Gap, Bracelet - Christmas present

I got the killer sweater dress pictured above, boots I had secretly coveted (how does Husband always know?), a black blazer, a warm trapper hat, a gorgeous dress, and many wonderful non-wearable things.
Also this purse in the most perfect shade of green.
I hope everybody had a wonderful Christmas! I immediately started to wear my presents.
Day after Christmas.
Anybody recognize this sparkly sweater dress, besides from the photo two up?
Rachel Bilson wore it on this magazine cover a few months ago.
I wasn't going to wear it with bare legs!
Dress - Express, Pashmina - Nordstrom (Present from Husband), Patent leather belt - Primark, Leggings - Arden B., Booties - Nine West
I couldn't believe Husband tracked down this dress. He's always full of surprises.
So sparkly!
My last outfit is from a couple of days after Christmas. I took off from work to visit some friends back in my hometown.
Driving/hanging out outfit.
I was glad I made time to visit friends, but the drive really wore me out!
Face - tired, Blazer - American Eagle (Christmas Present from Sister), Black cami - Express, White shirt - Express, Bracelet - Present from In-Laws, Blue jeans - J Brand, Boots - Vince Camuto
Check out the blazer! I love rolling up the cuffs to see the pinstriped lining.
Christmas present success!
And...that's it! I'll have a few more pictures from the last couple of weeks, then we'll be all caught up!
