Faux Skirts

I’ve decided that I’m very much a dresses and skirts kind of girl.  Don’t get me wrong, I definitely wear pants, but I love the easy freeness of throwing on a dress or the flowiness of a skirt.  Lately, I’ve been into wearing faux skirts, as in wearing something over a dress so that it looks like a skirt.

I was looking up thrift stores in town because I haven’t yet done any thrifting since I’ve been home and apparently there’s this great consignment/antique store downtown.  I definitely plan to check it out today or tomorrow!

Also, I started a new knitting project, a late Christmas present for my godmother.  It’s a red ruffley scarf (I’ll put up pictures when I’m finished) and hopefully I can finish it soon so I can give it to her before the new year!  Do you guys have any late Christmas presents that you haven’t yet given to the giftee?

Casual Pants Sunday

First of all, I’d like to share that – woot!  It’s finally sunny here!  When I’m lounging around on the weekend, I don’t usually get too fussy with my outfits and I throw on a casual top and pants.  Then if I need to run out and grab something, I just put on some shoes and I’m ready to go!

Christmas yesterday was very chill and enjoyable.  My brothers woke me up (as usual), we opened presents, lounged about, stuffed our faces, and watched movies.  I think I was successful with my gifts this year.  I gave my mom and dad a photo calendar with pictures of our family in the various months,  I gave my sister a beginner knitter’s “survival kit” because she has just taken up knitting (which I’m really excited about!) and I gave my brothers one of those videocameras like the Flip.  They all seemed to really like their presents, which made me happy.  :)  I want to hear all about your Christmas!  How did you spend the day?

Also, update on the Forever 21 nail polish that I mentioned a couple posts ago.  I’ve had it on my nails since Wednesday and it has barely chipped (this is without even doing any touch-ups with a top coat).  There are only little tiny chips at the top of the nail, which you don’t even really notice unless you are looking for them, and one tiny chip on my index finger.  So far, it is holding up really well, much better than the $1 nail polish that I’m used to!
