Daily MelWear: Holiday Cheer

Okay listen, I know it's still 90 degrees out and Christmas is a long time away, but I feel a little bit like a present in this gold skirt and red top. I wasn't sure I'd like this, and I can definitely say it's not my favorite outfit ever, but I don't hate it. I think the necklace and sandals add a little something to make it better for me.

HEY - did you read my post yesterday about signing up for this year's Blogging for Breast Cancer Awearness Challenge? Well...go read it! And sign up! Because really, who doesn't need more pink in their life?

YAY pockets!
I think this year I'm going to do what I said I was last year, which is throw in a few guest posts from bloggers who have been through or know someone who has been through a battle with breast cancer. I want to share stories of hope and inspiration. I have a couple of ladies ready to post for me but if you have your own story or know of someone else, please let me know.

You guys...I know I've said this before, and I can't really get into details, but I'm just really, really happy right now and that's a good feeling. {But if I start to get annoying with this, someone please tell me. Nicely, yes, but tell me. I don't want to be irritating.} Granted, I'll be even happier when I get my MacBook back with a brand new hard drive, but even that isn't bothering me very much because I'm happy about the other things in my life. So...yay! 

I hope you're happy too. :) 

Today's outfit: 
Gold Skirt: Target
Red Blouse: From my friend Nicole
Sandals: From my mom
Necklace: Gift from ML

  15. I think looking like a present is not necessarily a bad thing! You look cute! And you could definitely Christmas-ify the outfit by adding some sparkly gold shoes and blingin' accessories. =)
