merry christmas to anyone who is reading this blog

it's christmas eve eve and i'm in a state of perma-anxiety. i can't wait to open presents, spend quality time with family and friends and relax. i watched home alone, home alone 2: lost in new york, love actually, the family stone and scrooged (and that was just in the last 24 hours--pathetic). a christmas story is on for a day straight and you better believe i'll dvr it and watch it five times before the new year. even though i like the look of snow, i'm getting sick of it--particularly driving in it, but what are you going to do? nothing but enjoy this time of the year. it'll be over before you know it. before it comes to a screeching halt, i can only keep my fingers crossed that santa brings me the cc skye power ring i asked for months ago:

i love huge rings. i can't get enough of them and this one screams "wear me with your new silk ruffle front top on new years eve."

while we're on the subject of accessories, i've been obsessed lately. with everything accessory-related. i think i have spring clothes on the mind now because i can't get enough gold and turquoise like these pendants: and this one:i've always loved turquoise and the gold adds a bohemian richness to it. i've had my eye on this sharkstooth necklace for awhile, and finally caved. merry christmas danielle:
yep, so being snowed in the last couple days hasn't helped with my online shopping addiction. and the fact that i'm cutting up and not using my credit cards in 2009 has forced me to go crazy getting those last couple purchases in pre-cut up. oops. you never know what will happen come spring. i needed a couple of basics. like these looser-fitting tshirts. merry christmas danielle:
who doesn't need a double layer low v-neck t shirt for spring? my turquoise necklaces will look fabulous with it! i needed a black t shirt too. so i opted for the celeb-fave kain brand pocket tee:

and what outfit wouldn't be complete without my key layering piece: the cardigan? i read good things about this brand, goddis, and had to have one. merry christmas danielle:

and why not throw this seven for all mankind ruffle cami into the spring mix too? (i did.) merry christmas danielle:

so, needless to say, i will have a very merry christmas, anticipating my spring wardrobe. and i'm going to have to be thrifty come 2009 sans credit cards. but for the time being, i don't feel an ounce of guilt making these purchases. i'm just doing my part stimulating the economy.

merry christmas everyone! before i go, get carrie underwood's style for less at fred.
