You know how I was planning a 2-11 day stay? We're definitely leaning towards the 11 days now. Yesterday, instead of heading West, to go back to Scott, we ended up heading East again, due to circumstances which I don't want to get into, but definitely put a damper on the joy of the season, hence my absence not only in outfits, but also in comments.
Suddenly needing an outfit I hadn't planned for in my open ended packing (but Cara! You said to plan for every circumstance from casual to dressy!! Let's just say there are some places where "festive" is not permissible), I allowed myself to break my "no pre-Christmas shopping" rule and indulge in some much needed retail therapy. While I had hopes of finding some grey booties (that weren't open toed and suede), I found some black cherry shoes (Rocket Dog - anyone familiar with the brand?). The best part? Not only were they originally $79.99, reduced to $65, then further reduced to $15, I got an additional 50% off at the till. That's right, $7.50. And they are SO comfortable!
