See the little spot of red in the background? That was a cardinal keeping me company as I froze while taking pics this weekend! I actually wore this a few weeks ago while Matt was in Ireland, but since my photographer was gone I had to wait and get pictures later. I love this leather skirt, but didn't want to look too tough in it. To balance out the leather, I added ruffles with my top and a pastel color.

I think I am in deep trouble if sweater dresses ever go out of style! Leggings are such a great option for underneath sweater dresses because they offer more coverage if you are playing on the ground with your children or trying to give speech therapy under a table. ;) I had to wear boots to work due to weather, and flats are a lot easier to fit in a bag than anything else. It's a goal of mine to keep my shoes nice and away from road salt as much as possible this winter!

That Crystal Statement Necklace is gorgeous too. The Photos outside are beautiful. I love that very first photo. But then again you have such a gorgeous fireplace - I am not sure I mentioned it before.

    I would love to see your Christmas decor & Tree too so show us that in a post, some day. I will do the same.

    One more great giveaway. I think I would use the Nordstrom Gift Card towards my second pair of Sperry Shoes. I'd love the Shimmery Silver Suede ones. =)

  12. Thank you Ada! I love that statement necklace and have gotten so much use from it! And I know my husband will be very happy to hear you like the photos. He does such a great job and I really appreciate the time it takes for him to do it! And thank you about the fireplace, it is one of the reasons we bought the house. :) I was thinking about doing a Christmas decor post, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Good luck with the giveaway!
