Last Saturday Lydia and I attended a brunch in Wethersfield for Connecticut bloggers. It was held at Heirloom Market and organized by the lovely Nonee, who runs CT Blogger Babes. There were a little over 25 lovely ladies in attendance for a delicious meal followed by some discussions about how to best reach your blogging potential. I actually learned quite a few tips!

We left the event with goodie bags containing fun little bits and bobs like chapstick, lip gloss and an adorable burned wood spoon. I also won a $75 gift card to Pearls and Plaid in Old Saybrook. Looks like I'll be planning a weekend visit!

I decided to wear my Carven Paris map print dress because I haven't worn it that much this Summer (I did bring it to Italy, though!) It will forever be one of my favorite dresses. I'm so glad I splurged on it a couple years ago, it's definitely been worth it. I also broke out my rose gold watch for a bit more glam, but the battery died so it was just for looks.

Happy February!! Today is my last day in Florida, so sad! I must admit it will be nice to go home and back to my routine of watching TV and snacking all by myself. Ha ha.  But it was good to be around people for the past week since I'm usually a hermit.

I've had to limit my wears of these jeans lately. I wore them SO often for a while that they started to stretch out a lot and when I washed them to get their old shape back they faded a little. So I need to be more careful if i want them to last. Might have to find a backup pair on eBay; let the hunt begin!

It's the eve of Christmas Eve! YAYY!! This is basically the day before Christmas for my family because we start our Celebrations on Christmas Eve with my Dad's side of the family coming over to our house.  Today is a pretty awesome day though, we watch my favorite Christmas movie: SCROOGE. It is a musical version of A Christmas Carol starring Albert Finney and it is amazing! Plus, it has Alec Guinness (aka Obi Wan) in it too.

I love this Stella McCartney sweater so much, since it's a holiday sweater it will pretty much never go out of style (for me, at least). It was featured on the blog two years ago as a Dream Outfit for Christmas Tree hunting, but then I got it on sale at The Outnet at wore it the following year when we got our Christmas Tree.
