Outfit of the Week: Christmas Wrapping

Outfit of the Week: Christmas Wrapping

When: Friday
Where: Target
Why: Wrapping paper
Heard:  Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses on Grooveshark
Christmas Wrapping, by The Waitresses...This is one of my favorite "contemporary" original Christmas songs. It's totally 80s and has a cute story. I'm surprised how few ppl in America have heard this, where the band originated from, but it's so popular in the UK. I have a cold, so this post will be short! Moving on...
Wore:
  • I ran out of wrapping paper mid-wrap! Wrapping presents is one of my LEAST fave things ever. And I am bad at spatial recognition, so it's no surprise that I had to make a quick trip for more paper. I wore this mustard cardi, from Target.$14
  • I paired it with a navy shirt from JCrew. $15
  • Added a scarf from Rue 21 (no longer available)
  • Threw on some jeans and flats (oops, forgot to post those)
  • Since my hair is usually curly or wavy on here, I thought I'd wear it straight!

What was your favorite outfit from last week you wore?

  47. I have mustard on my list to get. Looking for a cardi just like that!

  48. Cute outfit put together to run an errand. Sorry you don't like wrapping. I love it. I just don't like when it piles up and becomes a chore. I have set-up a guest room as a wrapping room and now I wrap 2-3 presents at a time when I feel like it. I love using real ribbon which is easier to tie and always looks great instead of paper bows or ribbons.
