Everyone's dancing merrily in a new old fashioned way

Outfit Details:

top and leggings - H&M, cardigan - Gap, watch - Kenneth Cole, boots - Frye




This morning Maya sang in her first holiday concert with all her classmates. It was adorable, hilarious and made me smile and laugh so hard that I had tears in my eyes. They sang their little hearts out, and you can tell that they'd been practicing very hard. For a bunch of 3 to 5 year olds, I was so impressed by how many songs they sang, the variety (everything from Rudolph to "O Canada" to "This Little Heart of Mine") and their focus.

All in all, one of my best memories to date. I feel extremely lucky to have Maya in this school. There are less than 30 kids in her school (12 in her class) and 4 teachers. And you can tell all the teachers enjoy and love their job so much.


For the past year, I'd been hankering for an oversize round men's style watch.  I considered buying the Michael Kors version, but hesitated over spending so much on a trend item.  While the watch itself is classic, I doubt that I would wear it once the trend was over.  I am just not a watch person.

Then a few weeks ago, we re-did our den and I came across DH's old Kenneth Cole watch.  It was perfect.  P.E.R.F.E.C.T.  I love the gunmetal, the oversize face and clean design.  I asked if I could have it, and DH (knowing he was saving our household the cost of an MK watch) happily agreed.  I took it last weekend to get resized and a new battery put in, and we've been inseparable ever since.

This is pure outfit perfection. Right down to that KILLER watch.

Hrm, for some reason your updates aren't showing in my reader Theressa! But it was a pleasant surprise to see you had several posts for me to read when I came here today though :) Anyway, I love the combination of dreamy pink and olive green -- I would have never thought of it, but it goes together so well. Oh, and Maya's concert sounds like it must have been wonderful and so sweet to watch!
