Before anything else, I have to give a quick shoutout/thank you/virtual hug to my computer engineer future brother-in-law, who saved Something Pretty yesterday when I decided to mess with my coding and ended up with a “white page of death,” as the WordPress forums refer to it. You’re the best, Pete!!
I decided against a real Christmas tree this year since I’m headed home to Texas tomorrow, but that didn’t stop Dave and I from checking out some trees at a nearby farm. I bundled up in my favorite cocoon coat and Dave’s cozy plaid scarf that I gave him for Christmas last year–I admit, I had every intention of borrowing it from time to time. :) This outfit was a lot of fun to wear because no matter which layers I had on, there was a little bit of pattern mixing visible–if my coat was zipped, you could see the plaid scarf and my polka dot bow bracelet. If I took off my coat, it was the polka dot bracelet and my striped shirt. Even though I haven’t needed to wear a coat consistently quite yet, this is definitely a trick I’ll be keeping in mind over the next few months when I get tired of my winter clothes.
