December Shop Charity

Between Thanksgiving and Christmas (and being stuck inside because its too cold to go anywhere), this time of year is all about spending time with family. Sadly, some people do not have loving or safe home environments. The idea of spending a happy holiday with family, or at least not spending it in the hospital from injury, is a foreign idea to some. So this month, the beneficiary from my shop sales is going to be Safe Horizon.

What I Wore: Red Buds in December

I wore this last week, before our little cold spell descended. A sleeveless top and light cardigan in December! This is why I live in Texas. I know in the summer I start complaining about it being over 100, but that’s a price I’ll gladly pay for sunny 75 degree days in the winter. I had quite enough grey slushy 20-degree days growing up in Ohio. The past few days, of course, it’s been a bit colder. It’s all of 40 degrees out when I typed this out. But weather forecast shows it’s back up to 70 this weekend. At […]

What I Wore: Summer in December

Well, it almost didn’t happen, but I managed to squeeze in a What I Wore post for December. Yesterday was amazingly nice out – 71 degrees, sunny with blue skies. This is why I live in Texas. 🙂 It called for a summery outfit, and I went with a nice breezy dress and sandals. And I finally got a chance to wear my new peacock scarf that’s been sitting on the shelf for a few weeks. Granted, it only stayed in my hair for about 20 minutes because my hair just can’t hold on to things like this, but it’s […]
