You're A Mean One Mr. Grinch

Outfit 25: Skirt: Made by me, Sweater: Sistered, Shirt: Thrifted, Shoes: Steve Madden
I realized this week that Sir Matt and I have absolutely no Christmas decorations. No I'm not the grinch, it's just our very first Christmas together and in years past I hardly felt the need to decorate when I was going home for Christmas each break. Now I have to fill the decoration shoes...well this is it. I was talking to my boss about me and Sir Matt getting a tree this weekend and she was kind enough to lend me two of her own. It's perfect, we're still going home for a Christmas in California but we still have a little tree of our own. I realize that this is in no way actually decorating the house for Christmas, but it'll do for now.


  1. I love it! I think it's absolutely perfect. Sometimes I wonder why I put up such a big to-do about decorating inside and outside, when we're never home for the actual holiday, anyway. I guess I just can't get enough, but it's a heck of a lot of work before and after!

    I LOVE your tree.
    And this skirt.
    And the fact that you said your sweater was "Sistered."

  2. crazy tree but festive oh yeah :)
    love the holidays :)

  3. That skirt is FABULOUS!!! I love it! The gold with the blue and black are so great together.

    And the trees are adorable! That counts as decorating. You know what else counts? Waiting until AFTER Christmas to get the discounts.


  4. Your skirt is so pretty!!!
    I think we need a tree that size. Our house is so small. I think we are going to paint a tree on our sliding glass door in lieu of a real tree.

  5. are those trees !!! very cute skirts enjoy your holidays pretty gir

  6. I think those trees are cute! Love the outfit too

  7. Ooooh, I desperately want to see a full-length of this skirt!!! It looks like lovely, lovely fabric and drape! I'm impressed by your skills...I can't sew worth a lick :)

  11. I'm a huge fan of the mini-tree in the early years of a relationship, especially if you're still going home for the holidays :) And you look adorable!
