And everything looks good tonight

Listening to: "The Passenger," Iggy Pop
Trenchcoat: Banana Republic;
Dress: Anne Taylor Loft;
Tights: Target;
Shoes: Aerosoles;
Bracelets: Black cougar bracelet - thrifted; Green: gift.

This is what I wore to Jeremiah's family's (well, I guess my family too now!) annual Christmas dinner at Maggiano's in Atlanta. Everyone dresses up and we gorge ourselves on yummy Italian food and drinks. The last couple of years the little cousins have liked performing during dinner and since Jeremiah and I are the older ones, they pulled us into their grand production of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Jeremiah and I represented '11 pipers piping' and '10 lords a-leaping,' respectively. I guess we are in that strange age period where we are still considered somewhat new to the adult table but are still young and hip enough (I can't believe I just said that) to hang out with the younger ones. It is always a great time.

 It was feeling balmy in Atlanta yesterday afternoon when we took these photos, so I wasn't a total crazy person for wearing a short-sleeved dress. I love this dress from Anne Taylor Loft - I found it on major sale for $10, originally $80. I could have danced circles around the dressing room, it made me so excited. I love shopping there because their jeans actually fit me (I'm a petite and I like the straight leg look) and their dresses are pretty lovely. Cougar bracelet made a return, and the Aerosoles are comfortable. A pretty easy and comfortable outfit.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday, wherever you are!
