Oh, Christmas Tree

Keeping with my unintentional Christmassy-outfit theme, I have to say, I felt like a bit like a Christmas tree today with my brown knee socks and green skirt. And my plaid shirt made me feel like a lumberjack, who chops down the trees (okay, maybe that's a bit of a stretch)! I've been pretty much just wrapping presents and writing out labels all day. Yesterday, I picked out what cookies I'm going to make for Christmas eve (mint sandwich cookies, red velvet short bread, and pumpkin snickerdoodles!) and I also decided I'm going to try my hand at pretzel bread on Christmas day! I had my first taste of it when Zak and I when out to a fancy restaurant for our three year anniversary, and I've been wanting more since. I also may or may not have had both IHOP and Domino's pizza yesterday. I can't confirm or deny this information. How was your weekend? Are you trying to get in as much Christmas as you can, too?

Top, Socks: Delia's

Until tomorrow,


  1. Hehe, loving that green skirt! You're making me wanna wear red and green now... gotta go search my closet! My weekend has been super relaxing, I still have to pinch myself to know that this is real life. Life after exams is like heaven!


  2. That skirt is absolutely lovely! It's such a great color without being TOO Christmas-y. And just a heads up, Nicole...I'm going to be coming over to your place for those cookies. They sound way too delicious. :( YOU MUST SHARE. Haha, just kidding. But at least take pictures so I can stare and salivate!

  3. OH ihop is my weakness! You don't look like a tree, I actually like the pairing of the plaid top with the skirt. If you were a christmas tree, you'd be the cutest one by far :)


  4. You look like an adorable little school girl, hehe. I always love that aqua skirt on you. :) Against the plaid it looks so wonderful (and not tree-like, no worries ;))! <3

  5. Semi bare legs, in December?! Where do you live again?! ;) You look so cute. I love the colors, of course!
