Holiday Excuses featuring Piperlime

Wednesday, December 18, 2013
 








Top (similar): Nordstrom | Skirt (on sale now): Piperlime | Heels: Payless | Necklace: Groopdealz | Clutch: Oxford Trunk

There is something that is so fun about dressing up for the holidays. I love the reds and greens and emeralds along with a valid reason to dress up a little. That is why I called this post holiday excuses. I feel like we use everything as an excuse. It is the holidays though. We do justify spending a little more money, eating a little more food, and hopefully a little more Christmas spirit although it seems people are more grumpy! 

This skirt caught my eye not only for the color, but it looked long enough for me, and it is! This skirt also comes in a gorgeous blue color. I had the hardest time deciding which color, but went with this emerald because I have been dying to have something in this gorgeous color!

I can't believe Christmas is next week. I haven't started wrapping presents. I feel like there is no time to do anything!! I will just say, I am beyond excited for this weekend already. I am so tired and I can feel sickness coming on (knock on wood). Hope you have a wonderful rest of the week!
