All Wrapped Up with a Bow

Its Friday and I am up at my parents-in-law's place in central California, ahh to get out of the LA smog and enjoy the beautiful scenery up here. Why can't my vacation be longer so I can spend some more time up here amongst these gorgeous views and family and friends. However, I will be thankful for the blessings I have and not wish for more, because I have plenty as is! I do have a few scheduled posts up tomorrow and then a Christmas post but other than that I will be a bit quiet in responding, need a bit of a bloggy break!
Christmas is almost here and between the wrapping of presents, spending time with family, it was a little hard to remember to take photos of my outfits but I did take a few. Plus I wanted to give my blog a break from all the holiday baking, etc. although you will get one more baking recipe tomorrow :-)

First I wanted to start with this week's Friday Fancies of snowy white and I titled my outfit, all wrapped up with a bow (very Christmas appropriate, right?)
winter whites

And a few outfits of my own. I apologize they are a mix of work outfits and weekend or after work outfits. Some days I really wish, especially work days, I could wear my jeans. I just feel my jeans outfits are so much more cute than my work outfits, but then I would be fired if I wore jeans and that would be no-bueno!

This is one work outfit.

These are my lace boot socks, ok no technically socks more like knee-highs but I love the lace look. Location of tight socks: Target.

This was an outfit to meet friends in one evening after work.

And lastly, an outfit that I wore to our church's Christmas program. Girls, that orange sweater, I found on ebay for $10 and it is Anthropologie, score!
I also asked my husband to participate with an outfit and this is what he came up with :-)

He felt rather sleuthy in the second outfit. Actually these were taken in Macys when we were out Christmas shopping. He is modeling the very chic 3 in 1 wrap :-) Oh honey, I love you!
