Today was my last work day of the year ...except for the work I'm going to have to do next week... At least it was my last day in the office. I went out to lunch with the other two people from my group who were in, and then our site closed at 2 PM so I got to leave early.

My husband couldn't believe we weren't allowed to wear jeans or "dress down" today. Well, that's very rare at my office. I did wear corduroy pants, though.
I did end up going to the Limited on Saturday and taking advantage of their 40% off sale by getting two pairs of pants. These black ones looked awesome in the dressing room, but when I got dressed this morning... I just wasn't feeling it, and ended up changing. I will try again soon, maybe with some different underwear..?

I also got a grayish tan pair of these pants, which I didn't try on, because they're the same style and size. Big mistake. They fit totally different! Might actually have to return those :o(
We went to a Christmas party hosted by friends tonight. I was worried that I was going to get chilly with just 3/4 sleeves and a pretty thin t-shirt and sweater, so I ended up also wearing my black scarf all night - which actually looked good, and did keep me comfortably warm.

I was browsing through this site last night, looking for things I hadn't worn in a while, or wore too much, or maybe shouldn't wear again, and I saw this sweater. Oh yeah, it is soft and very warm! I don't think I've ever worn it buttoned up like this before. And I probably won't again, because it turns out sort of blobby.

I was just thinking that maybe I should go back to The Limited sometime and get some more pants, since I love this pair so much, and then I saw that everything there is 40% off tomorrow! So now I think I'm definitely going...
After work tonight was the holiday party for my organization at work. It was actually really nice, and I got to see some people I don't see all that often, so we had fun. I decided to wear a cranberry shirt and at least be a little festive looking.
You may be confused, because I do not usually go to the office on Wednesdays. Today I did! Then I played a concert with my band in the evening, where I had to wear a white shirt and black pants and shoes. So I wore an outfit to work that made for as little changing as possible - just had to switch out the sweater for my button-down shirt and I was ready to go.

Just for fun, I curled my hair a little this morning. What do you think?
I took the day off work and went out Christmas shopping with a friend. It was freezing cold and we were at an outdoor mall for half the day, so nobody really saw my clothes except when we took a lunch break!
Sweater - H&M Camisole - Old Navy Jeans - Old Navy Shoes - Clarks Privo Purse - Fossil
For my Twitter friends, this is the much talked-about Fossil purse that arrived this week! A nice big cross-body top-zip, it'll be great for traveling - and the pewter color goes with everything!
I'm taking the day off work tomorrow, so today was my Friday. Also, I had lunch with a coworker from another state who I hadn't met yet. We work together a lot and talk on the computer and phone all the time, so we felt like we already knew each other! Nice to put a live face with a voice, though.

Today was the day of my move! My new desk neighbors are nice, but they actually are leaving at the end of the month, so I will be all alone again :o(
Sweater - Bass Slacks - New York & Company Shoes - Lela Rose Earrings - gift
My day started with a lady on the elevator saying, "Cute shoes," and the shoe compliments continued! I rarely wear them, though, because the fabric is green, navy, brown, and tan, and I feel like it's hard to match them with outfits. I have pretty much only ever worn them with this green sweater or with a dark blue top and brown or tan pants. Any suggestions for how I can get more use out of them?
Oh I thought last week was cold? Today's freezing temps and biting winds put that weather to shame. Didn't have to go anyplace at work today, just had a bunch of teleconferences and needed to finish up packing for my move.

I say it every time, but I love these pants. Just enough stretch to be really comfortable. And they're warm!
I should have worn a big old sweater today, because it went from being tolerable out yesterday to bitterly cold today. Luckily I wasn't outside too much, but I did leave the office early to go out for a farewell/celebratory lunch with my group.
