I haven't done a flashback post in a while, but I am getting ready for my birthday trip this weekend and my normal photographer (AKA my teenager) is heading out of town today. I thought I would look back at some of my favorite December looks. Some were for my birthday or other holiday parties, but these are some of my faves. The one above was on my birthday, 5 years ago!, when my sister was visiting us and we spent some time at the Dallas Museum of Art. I still love shiny fabrics and I think I am packing my silver sequined skirt for this weekend and I am looking for a cute top in my closet.
This was in December of 2012. Reading this post, it makes me hope that this trip to Las Vegas is just as amazing as the one we took four years ago. That was the last time I got to see a Cirque Du Soleil show and even if my husband has imposed a moratorium on Cirque Shows, we already got tickets to watch the Love Beatles Tribute at The Mirage and except for Zarkana, which is no longer running, this will mean we've seen all the Cirque shows in Vegas that we were interested in. And considering it will be freezing in the desert all weekend, now might be a good time to pull this Marc Jacobs scarf back out and look for my furry gloves.
I was never into leather pants, much less leather leggings, until I discovered these Paige leather leggings. Now that I has been so much colder here in the bay than it was last winter, I still have them handy and I think they would be perfect for the forecasted cold this weekend. I am definitely packing these leggings in my suitcase. This outfit includes so many pieces that have stood the test of time. I still pull these items out of my closet on a regular basis.
The last outfit is from last year. I wore this to show my husband's aunt around Baker Beach before Thanksgiving. See the Paige leggings again, because I searched EVERYWHERE to get them in black, too. But unfortunately, they died a tragic death by tear just two weeks later in Dallas during a bar crawl with my sister. Um, should I also pack my Uggs? This is an exercise in futility.
