Last night, we celebrated a bit of an "early Christmas" as my little sister has to work on actual Christmas. It was quite fun and she got me some very cute accessories. Plus a hand blender. I'm pretty excited about the prospects of making homemade tomato soup with it. These are the things that excite me now.

This dress was from my Flock Together secret Santa, Jenn and I am in love with it. It's so comfortable, light weight, and I'm already thinking of how to wear it in the summer time.

I can't believe Christmas and the end of the year are right around the corner! The quickness of time passing will never cease to amaze me. Guess I'll need to start on those retrospective posts...


Dress: Gift from Jenn
Shoes: Thrifted

  2. Okay, I totally want a hand blender! Jen did such a great job with the Secret Santa, you look so pretty in that dress. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas ♥

  3. homemade tomato soup would totally excite me too. Jen did an amazing job w/ your gift, the print and colors on that dress are awesome and extra good w/ those tights. that's great you all could celebrate christmas early, my family will be doing that too this year. also, thank you for your thoughtful comment on my post about Jonny, it's so easy to just quickly scroll through the internet so I really appreciated your thought in it!

  4. You never disappoint me in the tights department! I love the way the bright teal looks with your pale shoes :)

  5. I can't believe that Christmas is so soon, either! Crazy. Where did December go?! I love your deep teal tights, I've definitely been on a colored tights craze and I just want to incorporate more colors into my dark winter palette in general!

  6. This dress does look pretty comfy :) I love dresses like that. I cant believe Christmas is almost here either. 2013 sure went by in the blink of an eye.

  7. Right?? I still can't believe we're entering 2014!
    Aha, and Jenn did a marvelous job picking out this dress - it looks fantastic on you, especially with the teal tights :)

  8. That dress is so amazing! You styled it perfectly with the tights, it's so much more 'interesting' than just black ones:) And I love the idea of wearing sandals in winter with tights, I never tried this but I should haha:) (and I have my eyes on a very pretty pair by Aquazzura:p)

  9. What a fabulous secret Santa you had! Also, your tights collection makes me uber jealous. I need to get on that more!

  10. You are so fabulous at pairing colours. Love this, happy holidays

  11. Jenn really nailed that dress on you Jessica! And love the teal tights with the ivory shoes.

    I think I may just need a hand blender. Have a lovely Christmas lady!

  12. Looking cute!
    I don't know what I'd do with a hand blender, I can't cook a thing ha... happy holidays!

  13. I still go into Versona for accessories and gifts all the time! Your hair is looking so cute these days!

  14. Mmmmmm homemade tomato soup sounds divine. Merry Christmas Jessica!

  15. My mother in law gave me a hand blender one year and it ended up being the greatest gift! I love it for making soup. This dress is so pretty and fits you perfectly, what a great gift. Love the belt too! Yeah, the whole time passing thing is crazy and it seems to speed up every year...

  16. Jenn completely killed it with this dress. It's gorgeous, and it fits you like a dream. Plus, nothing beats a cute dress that's comfy too.

    Sounds like a great early Christmas! But now I want homemade tomato soup.... Merry Christmas, Jessica!

  17. Lovely dress! Those tights are a great colour too. And I absolutely love your hair! The curls are beautiful. Happy Holidays, dear :)

  18. The color on the tights is so great.

  19. How fast time passes always blows my mind. I can't believe New Year's is less than a week away. What? But anyway, your early Christmas sounds great. We almost always do that! But then we have others with other people. You'll have fun with that hand blender. They're great! Hooray soups!

    But anyway. Onto this outfit! I really love the color combination of your tights and that dress. Your dress has such a cool print!

  20. i can't believe how quickly this year has flown by either, i hope you had a great christmas and have a happy new year too! :)
