Neutrals With a Punch of Red

Hello! Just wanted to take a few minutes to say Merry Christmas to all of you. With the holidays in full swing we've had a lot of things to go to from kids' music concerts to church Christmas pageants and everything in between. I've long said goodbye to my "ugly Christmas sweaters" in favor of more understated yet festive attire. I threw this outfit together for my older son's Jazz U concert last week:

Sweater, Banana Republic, Rag Doll Clothing Exchange
Pants, New York and Co.
Tank, What to Wear, Edwardsville IL
Necklace, Rag Doll Clothing Exchange
Boots, Payless Shoe Source
Add some Christmas ornament earrings and you've got an instant festive, holiday outfit.
Another frugal, fashion for the home I used this season was to decorate my outdoor plant pots with evergreen boughs from a friend's garden. Hard to beat FREE!

We also attended a Celtic Christmas celebration in St.Louis called "Christmas in the Kitchen" featuring the music of Mitzi MacDonald and Keltic Reign. You haven't lived 'til you've seen Santa in a kilt!

One last thing.....Merry Christmas from our family to yours!
