This is a pretty understated holiday outfit for those who don't want to go all-out for the season. Honestly, I've been so OMG-Christmas-is-here since December 1st that by now I'm exhausted at the thought of pulling together full outfits for the blog, even if they're part of a self-imposed thematic challenge. Taking on the task of DIYing sentimental gifts was more work than I anticipated. Between daily trips to craft stores, last-minutes stops at dollar stores, bi-weekly grocery errands, baking, wrapping, glittering and Mod-Podging... it might have been easier to just buy gift cards for everyone. On Sunday morning my family's faces had better reflect an adequate appreciation for the time and effort that went into their gifts, or I'm gonna be pissed. Just kidding. They'll like anything I give them, even if it is on par with a kindergartener's attempt at macaroni art. I've got some dont-do-it-yourself posts and pictures to go up after the holidays are over... some of the things I attempted to make came out downright laughable. Turns out some crafts are harder to execute than Pinterest would lead you to believe, but we all know it's the thought that truly counts anyways.
