And, due to all my nieces and nephew's young ages, we had to get up at 6 AM to open presents on Christmas Day. This is quite different from my in-laws Christmas, where everyone likes to sleep in. You can tell my husband's excitement in the picture below.
I just want to talk for a second about what a great uncle my husband is!! He carried that cute pink back pack for my niece and didn't even think twice about it. They all gang up on him and tease and play with him, but he is so patient and good with them that I just KNOW he is great daddy materiel.
I really enjoyed spending times with my parents and siblings that happened to be home for Christmas. It really sucks living away from home sometimes.
And, yes, I'm wearing a cat inside of a banana shirt. Don't worry about it.
After the observatory, we went to the coolest mall (Glendale Galleria) to shop for a bit and eat dinner. Streets after streets of shopping! It's like a dream come true, for me.
I apologize for the awkward faces and body language. I was trying to be more "model like" ha. And I also apologize for my wreath not being straight and there being a bat man on our door step. We found it in one of our window wells from the previous owners. So he just hangs out now..
Pointy tan flats - Lucky from Nordstrom Rack, $24.99
Blue skinny Pants - Fire Los Angelas from Nordstrom Rack, $14.99 (These pants have a cool subtle sheen to them that you can really only see in person).
Graphic 3 quarter length sleeve Shirt - Down East Basics, $6.99 (they had a half off clearance sale!)
Gold and Leather Bracelet - Kate Spade Saturday, $10 (Cabazon has a wonderful outlet for Kate Spade)
Gold bar necklace - Bridal party gift from my sister-in-law, $0
Khaki Jacket - Rubbish from Nordstrom Rack, $19.99
My outfit total is $76.96. It is a bit pricier than my normal outfits but I love it so who cares!!
Tip of the day? Wear something that makes YOU happy. If a cat in a banana or a shirt filled with hot air balloons makes you happy, than wear it, though my husband says I'm on restriction from buying more shirts with cats on them. I don't know why but they all make me laugh. Clothing is functional and you should look nice in what you wear but you should also be happy in what you're wearing. So wear that way too sparkly top or wear black on black on black or a skirt with fringe down to your ankles. If it makes you happy, do it!!
Thanks for reading and have a great day!!!!!!
