If you follow me on Latte Love, you may have seen my announcement today about the launch of Blogger Map Project. It’s a map to connect bloggers all over the world. You can read more about it in my post here: http://www.latteloveblog.com/2011/12/400-posts-blogger-map.html
I hope you’ll consider joining. (Another great resource for blogger locations is Rose A La Mode’s Style Blogger Map.)
Now, on to the important stuff - my clothes. And an unintentional reveal of half of my living room.
reluctantly kindly agreed to take the past few days of outfit photos in our living room because of the early sun set and my lateness in the morning.
If you would, please ignore the photo of the Rialto Square bridge in Venice. That photo has been leaning against the wall un-hung for over two years because I can’t decide if I like it or not or whether to put it 6 or 12 inches above the mantle. My life is full of difficult decisions and hanging the Rialto Square Bridge is one of the hardest.

I am obsessed with the dress. E was going to get me the orange one for Christmas and then they were all sold out. I was pitying myself reading the reviews for the dress and I realized that based onthe review, an XS might fit me better. Then I realized that this blue shade was the only XS color left so I immediately ordered it for myself and then told E what he bought me. Merry Christmas!
As far as sizing for this goes - I normally wear a S/4 at Target and most other places. I am slightly pear-shaped. Happily the fit of this dress is slightly more generous around the hips and I’m so glad I got an XS.
After being sick all week I was dying to get out of the house - even though I still wasn’t feeling 100% (and waaay overdid it). I wore this to my saturday a.m. Bible study, a ladies’ Christmas brunch, and then a bridal shower - all back to back!
I snagged this dress at a consignment shop in Pasadena, Crossroads Trading Co. Needs to be taken in a lot on the sides, but I just safety pinned it and wore a cardigan for now.
I really struggled putting this outfit together, because a vision for how I wanted to wear it, but didn’t have the pieces I really wanted to make it work.
In an ideal world - this is how I would have styled it.
can you tell I’ve been sick all week? Sweats x 5 days does not good style blogging make. I wore this before I crawled into bed for the rest of the week.
opening up my shoe collection for fall/winter by adding tights to open-toed shoes.
