This sweater is the last new item I have to wear. It works much better than the black tee I had originally chosen since it's more substantial to keep me warmer, but short-sleeved to help deal with the fluctuating temperatures (70degrees today...WTF?).

This skirt is beginning to grow on me; however, if you as much as look at it, the wrinkles pop up!

I am going to a jewelery trunk show tonight held by the lovely lady who made these earrings for me on my birthday. I thought I would change into something more comfortable for gazing at gorgeous necklaces and bracelets and earrings and rings and more!

My eyes are pretty small; I can accept that. But I have noticed more lately that when I smile too much, they become positively squinty. So here I have purposefully opened them wider. I hope I don't look too manic!

I want this photo to remind to "reframe" the season and remember what really most important about the holiday - friends and family, like those hung on our walls!

I love the neutrals! And I really like black and khaki together! Which reminds me... I haven't worn those two colors together on my blog... at all! I love the version with jeans too! Super cute! :)

You don't look manic at all! My eyes are the same way (it's so annoying!) so I just make an effort to relax them when I smile. Otherwise I do squint in every picture!

I love that top on you, it is absolutely perfect!

I'm a skirts girl so I like thes skirt a lot! I think it looks great with the sweater and the boots /socks combo!It's the hottest December for over a century in Greece and it's freezing cold in the rest of Europe!

That sweater is great! I love cowl necks. I am with you on the small eyes--I can never quite get it right. Either they're non-existent or I look like a psycho. I think you look great!
