Daily MelWear: To Be Festive and Pick A Winner!

Hi friends!

How was everyone's weekend? We had a really good one. We had a gig on Friday night, then Saturday was spent shopping while The Princess had a day with her daddy, and then her daddy and I had a gig that night. On Sunday we took her to see Grinchmas at Universal! She LOVES the Grinch. She says, "Mommy, he was mean but then his heart grew bigger and now he's nice!" My parents bought her a stuffed Grinch that she uses to blow kisses to everyone.

I love that little girl!

Last night my friend Nicole came over and we spent the evening making pumpkin dip and candy cane cupcakes for my office's holiday open house this afternoon. Betty Crocker I am not, so I'm thankful for her help!

With the open house today our boss wanted us to dress "festive." So...festive AND professional since it's still a work day? Hm. Okay.

This outfit is actually one that I've worn as a costume for some of our contemporary group gigs (as opposed to dressing like a Dickens-era caroler). It's comfortable and I personally think it's pretty cute. For gigs I'll usually wear a sparkly black scarf with it for a more winter-ish look.

And now for the moment you've all been waiting for! Or...something like that. :) I used to choose a winner for the giveaway, and the winner is...

Julia of Polka Dot Biker Shorts! Congratulations! Now we have matching necklaces! Or we will once I send yours to you. I'm going to try to email you but if you read this before I get a chance, send me an email with your address! My email is {aworkingmomscloset at gmail dot com}.

I need to give ML a HUGE thank you for sponsoring my first giveaway ( well as my second and third and fourth and...). She sent me a ton of great pieces so I have more giveaways coming up!

Have a great Monday, everyone!
