As I Cee It

Day 21: Where's Winter?

Somehow this holiday season has felt like fall. Here in the mid-Atlantic and for my northeast neighbors, the temperatures have rarely gone under 40 degrees and have frequently topped 60. This is pure insanity. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a huge fan of winter. Having to layer up so that I don’t turn into a popsicle, hoping a rogue patch of ice doesn’t take me out of the game, refusing to socialize because the idea of exiting the warmth of my home is too much for me to bear – none of that appeals to me. However, when it comes to Christmas, it seems unnatural to have temperatures like this. It could be 70 degrees on Christmas Eve! What is that?! I’m sure some southerners and those that live in the sunny sunshine states see this as normal, but for us… this is unheard of.

It almost goes without saying (and since it’s almost, I’m going to say it) that this topsy-turvy weather is having quite the effect on my clothing choices for work this week as well as Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Are any of you in the area? Is your mind BLOWN by this, too?

Day 20: Cee's Holiday Style

Time to share how I did holiday style this season. We had two family parties – my mother’s party last Saturday with the Lip Sync Battle (left) and my sister’s party last night with Family Feud (right). Forgive the terrible photos. I kept forgetting to get a picture of my ensembles during the parties.

Because I was hosting the Lip Sync Battle, I got a little fancier and indulged myself in the opportunity to wear my tulle skirt (Broke Girl Style). I paired it with an H&M t-shirt that I’ve had for a year or two, a red ribbon I pulled from another article of clothing and shimmery gold shoes (Brash, Payless).

On the right, I went for a more casual look and kept the shimmery gold shoes for a bit of fun. I bought the sweater specifically for this outfit for $20 at Marshalls. Added a long gold necklace (J. Crew) and white jeans (Blue Ashphalt, Wet Seal).

I prefer the outfit on the right, though the tulle skirt always makes me feel fancy and ladylike.

Day 19: Holiday Nails
Here’s another way to jazz yourself up for the holidays. I wanted something festive for one of our family parties. Unfortunately when I went looking for a metallic gold nail polish, I couldn’t find one that wasn’t $10 or more. Instead, I picked up a sparkly gold $5 choice from the Maybelline section and decided to pair it with a red I already own.

It took some getting used to, but I think I like it. Please ignore the actual state of my nails.
