A week to go!

Are you ready?  I am sort of…I just have to wrap everything and assemble a damn dolls house!  Writing that makes me realize I’m not ready at all!  So in the frenzy of Advent here is a quick outfit post.

Yesterday morning it was my son’s Kindergarten Holiday program.  It was beautiful – they sang songs for Chanukah, Christmas, Kwanzaa, Chinese New Year and Las Posadas – wonderfully multi-cultural.  He was the only boy in sweats and sneakers – I must remember the slacks, sports jacket and loafers for next year.

I made sure my piercings were on full show for the PTA by wearing my hair behind my ears with a baseball cap.

AS and JC


Sneakers – Golden Goose // Jeans – Diesel Fayza Jogg Jeans // Shirt – Gap // Cardigan – AllSaints // Cap – J.Crew

Last night I went out for drinks and appetizers with two wonderful girlfriends.  We bought tickets for the Mega Millions draw, which I refuse to check today just so I can pretend I won for a little longer.

Try and enjoy this coming week – take a moment to relish friends and family at this fun time of the year.  It’ll be 2014 before we know it.

    Not ready here either – I also bought a couple of mega millions tickets – no luck but one of the big winners was in Atlanta so you never know you could be a millionaire

    Oh every time I see that All Saints cardigan, I regret not buying it!
    Also, thanks for the ASOS tip-off – my parka wardrobe gap has been filled….hopefully! Enjoy the next few days – I’m stuck in bed with a horrible dose so I’m being forced to chill and it’s no bad thing xx

    As always – beautifully stylish!
    Do not make me start panicking – we have not completed buying presents, we have not bought any food and we haven’t wrapped!

    Have a wonderful Christmas and look forward to seeing you next year!

    Hi Joanna I spent a very pleasant evening surfing your blog last night. One thing that struck me is how much your style has evolved (in a good way) in such a short time. So much edgier. Merry Xmas to you and yours x

      It has hasn’t it!! 2 years ago I lived in Boden tunics and leggings! After my pregnancies and gaining weight I hated shopping so much so it was so easy just to order comfy stuff once I started loosing the weight. It took me a while to find myself again. I have no fear of trying new looks these days – but I used to hate shopping for clothes when nothing fit. I love looking a little different to the typical Atlanta Mom:) I feel so comfortable in my own skin these days instead of dressing how I think I should – I dress how I want to:) xx
