Over the weekend we had another dumping of snow, which is only the second since October. Last month it stayed for less than 24 hours, but I think this time it’s here to stay. I am not a fan of snow, except at Christmas but I can handle cold weather (hello layers).
A lot of people ask me if I’m cold because I wear skirts all winter, but I’m not! You can read about why I actually prefer skirts to pants in cold weather in this post.
On Saturday my church held it’s annual Christmas dinner and silent auction to raise funds for a missions trip. This was the first year we went, and it was a nice evening out with church family. We sat with the new Pastor and his family, which was nice because we enjoy getting to know them all. I really struggled with my outfit because my first thought was to go really dressy since it’s a Christmas event. But the dinner was held at a facility that houses an ice rink, so many people went skating after the meal, which meant fancy clothes were not ideal. Even though I wasn’t skating, and could theoretically have worn a fancier dress, I decided to go more casual so I didn’t look overdressed.
I added this cute enamel and rhinestone tree brooch for a bit of festive flair. In my hair I wore the poinsettia flexi clip (which is only available during the holidays). I also wore black tights and my Blundstone boots.
On Monday I wore the pink version of Saturday’s sweater, and topped it with a different brooch from my collection. I had planned to wear a shorter length skirt, but the wind was so biting that I decided against it.
This is the outfit I wore for chores at home, including collecting branches from the trees in my yard. I spent a few hours making some swags and garland for the house, and will post photos of that later.
On Thursday I was feeling like I just wanted to relax all day, so that’s what I did! Some chores were done but it felt good to just cozy up on the couch with a big blanket and a good book! Since comfort was key, I went with my old standby outfit.
That’s all for now! In December I will be hosting another fashion challenge in my Modest Young Women group but everyone is welcome to play along! You can follow the challenge on social media using #MYWDecemberFashionChallenge.
