Top: H&M, Skirt: Forever 21 (Old), Tights: Hue, Shoes: Vintage, Hat: 5th and Elm, Necklace: Francesca's (similar)

I really can't believe Christmas is only a couple days away! I am actually kind of on top of things this year, I finished the rest of my Christmas shopping yesterday and even finished wrapping everything. I even got a little crafty this year with my gift wrapping skills. 

Derek and I were actually headed out to finish Christmas shopping for his parents when we stopped to snap these pictures. This outfit is one of my favorites I've put together in a while, I love that feeling when you put something together and it just feels right even if you can't really pinpoint why. I guess that's what is so exciting about trying different styles and experimenting with fashion, sometimes after some trial and error you find an outfit you feel really shows off who you are-at least for that day.
