Holiday Brain

dec 3 3

I wore this the other day, when we put up and decorated our Christmas tree, so I'm thinking I subconsciously (or maybe consciously) had holiday-brain while getting dressed. It's not overtly Christmassy, but it is technically red and green, which are the most Christmassy colors. Also, I didn't notice it at first, but my high school's colors were maroon and gray when I attended, and navy and dark green when my sister attended, and my college's colors are green and white. I definitely have school on the brain right now, and it's apparently manifesting itself in my outfits. Swell!

Dress: Thrifted, Sweater: Urban Outfitters, Tights: We Love Colors, Boots: Lucky Brand, Brooch: Gift

Aaaaand, I thought you all deserved to see the graceful aftermath of this jumping shot, in which I look like a frog. I should really put together a super flattering "out-takes" post

Until tomorrow,


  1. I love the colours in this outfit so your school must be doing something right. I really like how christmassy the outfit is in a subtle way. that last photo is so funny, don't worry, nobody can do graceful jumping shots, i've been meaning to bring back my outtakes feature for a while now... x

  2. I love the holiday brain color combo you are wearing!! That last photo is hilarious but also cute...I have yet to even master the jumping shot:)

  3. Those boots are amazing. I think I'm in love : )

  4. LOL at the last photo ;) I love when you include pics like that!
    This outfit is so cute that I really want to steal it!I love everything and I'm such a sucker for dresses like that!!
    Life is a romantic poem

  5. aww, this look is the cutest!! i love the color combo, and i LOVE that dress! wonderful find. xx

  6. Haha! That last one is cuuuute! I love this look, you are right, Christmas-like, but subtle.

  7. I think shades of green and red are great together, and I'm always trying to work that combo in a way that's not too obviously Christmasy. I love how the cool, sort of minty green of your dress looks with the maroon here!

  8. I love the super-flattering frog picture Nicole : D And the colour combo and general coziness of this outfit!

  9. Well well well, it looks like Christmas really has snuck into your brain.. or closet? It works though and is especially fitting for the holidays!
    That last picture is so funny. If I didn't know better, I would have just thought you were playing leap frog. Oh gosh, jumping pictures sure do capture our finest moments. ;)
