Happy Holidays my lovely blog readers!
I've been feeling like such a Grinch this Holiday season. I've stopped listening to Christmas music in my car and I've done the Holiday crafts at work half-heartedly. Christmas lights this year just seem to have lost their magic too. I'm just looking forward to the new year and a fresh start. While 2011 has been wonderful in so many ways, it has definitely been a crazy roller coaster kind of year. I've been doing a lot of reflection lately, which I think is necessary and important before the start of a new year. I'll have to put together a 2011 Flashback post sometime this week.

This top is one of my oldest favorites in my closet, but I don't think I've worn it at all in 2011. This was such a last minute outfit (like Robert was already driving down my street when I put it together) that it was probably out of an old habit to reach for this top. There has been so many holiday looks with lace and the color red too. I remember when I first started blogging I would wear this top with any new skirt I got. That was when I didn't have such a cramped closet. I love mixing new and old with each other--this is my newest favorite ring. I have so many bow rings but this one is definitely my favorite, probably because it wraps my love for nautical things and for bows together in a cute little ring.

I'm off to a holiday party with friends now. I just wanted to pop in and wish you all the merriest of whatever holiday you may be celebrating.

Until next post,

  1. Happy Holiday's Jasmine! I hope you have a great time at the party tonight. You look adorable as always.

    I feel the same way. Christmas doesn't really feel the same this year. Although, I am looking forward to 2012. Great things will happen in the coming year. I just feel it!!

    xx Love & Aloha

  2. For such a rushed outfit, this is a winner! I love the red and the lace together, might have given me a bit of inspiration for some red shorts I swapped with Nicole. I'm glad your package found it's way safely to you! Have a very good christmas Jasmine, I haven't been feeling very festive either but now I'm done with work for a few days I'm hoping I'll get in the mood!

  3. I love your outfits espacially the top!

  4. Happy Christmas!! :D I love that really adorable bow ring! And the tote bag is lovely... my heart swelled when I read that it's from Madewell (one of my fav stores ever but do they do international shipping?? NO ><)

    Yeah, this year's xmas has not been particularly happening for me either... and no plans for xmas even except for attempts at studying.

    Hope 2012 will be a great one for you!

  5. The design of the lace top is put together really nice! Merry Christmas and have a wonderful time at the party with your friends. Hope that you have lots of fun ^^

  6. I always always always love this top every time you wear it and I still remember seeing it for the first time on Chictopia (wow, I sound like a creep, haha). And that ring? Perfect.

    I can't wait for the new year to start either. Definitely in need of a fresh start. Hope you had fun at the holiday party and got a little bit of christmas sprirt back into ya! Miss you lots and merry belated christmas! :) <3
