{Fashion} Merry & Bright

I wish I could tell you that I got all cute and dressed up for Christmas, but the truth is…it’s the one day of the year that I stay in my jams just about all day. And don’t feel guilty about it. When your kids wake you at 6 am you can only hold them off for so long. I get to brush my teeth, throw my hair in a pony, and then it’s off to see what Santa left us.

Luckily I dress myself every other day of the year. I am sure the hubs is thankful for that. Although, now that I work from home it’s pretty darn tempting to dress like it’s Christmas every day of the week. Ahem. I choose not to. But I do choose to be comfortable. I’m ALL about the comfy factor. That’s what I love about this outfit…leggings as pants and a cotton long sleeve T. Add a little chevron scarf and Steve Madden boots to dress it up.

    Team Leggings As Pants! I love it! Mint is SO your color! 😉 I need to “get dressed” way more often. I’ve started waking up at 5am to go to the gym and should really pack “real” clothes for after my shower- as opposed to another pair of yoga pants and a thermal!!
