Christmastime is Here! (Sort of)

Six Items or Less Update...

Photobucket One of the other Sixers noticed that not as many people are posting this go-round as usual post. I am one of the ones who is not posting as much this cycle. So I got to thinking about it...

I also am not pushing myself to get dressed every day this time.

In the other Sixes, I tried to get dressed every day, even if it was just to take the picture for my post. This time, I am actually living my real life. If I get dressed, I take a pic. If not, I don't.

But even when I do, sometimes I don't upload it for a day or so. Not sure why that is.

Might be the letdown of not having consistently colder weather. I really expected this season to be a lot colder by now so I could wear these great sweater dresses more often :).



Six Items or Less at Christmastime...

Might be the season: I get way into this part of the year in that I work less, spend more time with family, watch LOTS of Christmas movies, etc. It's a golden time and I am kind of protective of it.

Do you find that that happens to you, too?

I am linking up today with Nina from Momma Go Round for Real Momma, Real Style  and on Wednesday, I will link up with Lindsey at The Pleated Poppy for What I Wore Wednesday and Transatlantic Blonde for her What I Wore Wednesday extravaganza.

Warm Autumn:“This woman never pretends. She won’t say something just to flatter you unless she believes it to be true. She cries harder than anyone at a funeral. She is fiercely loyal to her family but will not spare them hard work or spoil them with extravagance. She may seem to absorb a lot of demands but when she draws the line at enough, everyone knows it.” ~~Christine Scaman, 12 Blueprints

  3. I love sweater dresses too. I don't have to worry about warm temps here, it is chilly in Northern Cali. We have had winters -25 F degrees, brrr...
    Thanks for stopping by Bacon Time. I joined the weekly WIWW linky to help stay accountable of my apperance. Being a work at home mom it's easy to fall into a robe rut. I use to work outside of the home as a professional, for a while as a teacher, then realtor, and as a fashion consultant at one point. So I was always getting dressed nice. It doesn't happen as often now, but the linkies seem to keep me motivated. Happy holidays.

  4. Hi Mindie! Thanks so much for stopping by to say hello. Brrr, I don't think it ever gets as cold here as you experience.

    And I know just what you mean about the temptation to stay in pjs or loungewear! I used to work as a therapist and then, never gave a thought to wearing suits and professional clothes. Nowadays, it's not so easy to make myself get dressed!

    Hope you holidays are happy, too. So far, mine are wonderful!

  14. Hi Melaina! Thanks!! I am finding that if I just add color under my face, I can get away with some of the neutrals I love :).
