Christmas shopping

this is not a normal saturday outfit for me. i don’t ever wear collared shirts, not even to work. i bought this top five years ago when i landed an internship, and haven’t worn it for at least a few years. i’m much more comfortable in a t-shirt, but the stripes and colors of this are unique and chic.

all this time i have been remixing with only 29 items, so today i chose three possible items to add and let my husband pick my 30th piece. he didn’t hesitate to challenge me with this one. i disagreed at first, but then i remembered how linley half-heartedly tucked in a button-up shirt this week and wanted to try it. i really like it!

in other news, i am having quite a difficult time with my Christmas shopping! i’ve only purchased a few things, and for some reason have no desire this year to fight the crowds and then wrap a bunch of gifts! :( i guess you can call me scrooge—but i did get my Christmas cards delivered on dec. 1!
