If you could attach sound with a blog post, this one would sound like “grrrrrr ughhhh, oh come on!” I need to find a new area to take pictures. The awkward interactions with people have got to stop. It never fails. Just as I get all set up- someone comes up and its all weird. I do really love todays outfit though. I wish the pictures did better justice to it. I mean, I know you can see the outfit, I just wish they were cooler pictures. I don’t think I will ever get tired of wearing this Alexa Chung polka dot blouse. I want to find a pretty maroon skirt to wear with it for Christmas eve. We watched A White Christmas last night (twice, thank you AMC) and I just LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Judy’s outfits. I want full circle skirts like hers. They are so pretty. I also love that all yellow outfit she wears in a rehearsal scene.

What is your favorite Christmas movie? Mine are def. White Christmas, The Santa Clause with Tim Allen and Muppet Christmas Carol. I am so excited for Christmas to get here!!

Polka Dot Blouse: Alexa Chung for Madewell
Tulle Butterscotch Candy Skirt: c/o Lulu’s (Yay! Its back in stock!)
Belt: thrifted
TIghts: H&M
Bismuth Booties: Seychelles

  1. I think I would never get tired of this skrit (swooooon)!

    My favorite holiday movies are Eyes Wide Shot (cause I’m a movie geek) and Dr. Seuss’ original 2D animated The Grinch Who Stole Christmas.

    Have a great week-end Jen!

  2. Love the polka dot blouse! Super cute! Muppet’s Christmas Carol is one of my all-time fave Christmas movies! I also love Love Actually!

  3. I’m seriously considering getting that skirt. It is sooooooo cute!
    My favorite holiday movies are White Christmas, Holiday Inn, Meet Me in St. Louis, and Love Actually. Just love me some romantic holiday corniness, along with some show tunes!

  4. I love love love Muppet Christmas Carol. I just wrote a blog post gushing all about it.

  5. I really LOVE this outfit!!! It’s perfection.

  6. My favourite is Love Actually!

  7. I think my favorites are Elf and The Santa Clause!

  8. Not a holiday movie per se, but I always watch The Sound of Music around the holidays. This year, we watched it a week or so after Thanksgiving.

    And then there’s A Christmas Story, which I used to not care for (probably because it’s on endlessly xmas day) but I’ll watch it now.

  9. Muppet Christmas Carol!! best Christmas movie ever.

    I love that Alexa Chung shirt too. It would look awesome with a maroon colored skirt! I hope you find one in time!

  10. White Christmas is my very favorite…but I also love Elf and umm….Bad Santa.

  11. Great outfit! I especially like those shoes! And I definitely agree with your Christmas movie picks…The Santa Clause is my absolute favorite!

  12. opps – put this under the wrong post – this is better…
    White Christmas is a christmas classic for my mom, sister and I too! When we were growing up, we would watch it every year on Christmas morning while we opened our stockings and had tea! Tea always taste so good on Christmas morning.
    We love the movie so much that on my wedding, my sister’s “speech” was an amazing slideshow presentation of pics of me and her growing up(and then she introduced a pic of my husband at the end – it was so funny) to the song “S isters, Sisters” from White Christmas. That’s by far our favourite part of the movie when the guys to the “sisters, sisters” song!! My other fav x-mas movies are: Elf, Santa Clause and all the Die Hard movies

  13. Great outfit!! That skirt is awesome 🙂

  14. Ahhh! That shirt and skirt are two of the things on your 30×30 that I’ve been lusting the most after. I’ve actually never seen White Christmas, but I love the old Rudolph movie.

  15. I love this outfit….that blouse and the skirt are some of my favorites…I think they look great every time you wear them.

  16. I LOVE that skirt, but as a tall gal I’m not sure it will be long enough. Do you know the length of the skirt (I can’t find the length on Lulu’s or Tulle). Thanks 🙂

  17. It has been ages since I have seen A Muppet Christmas Carol! Have you heard “A Christmas Together”? it is a Christmas Album with John Denver and the Muppets. We used to listen to it every christmas when I was growing up. 🙂 My favourite movie is National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. Love it! 🙂

  18. I’m glad Rowan is ok! Little ones are always giving doing things like that to keep you on your toes! Wait til they start eating solids and you have to worry about them choking on bits!

    I love the Muppets too. Love the Grinch with Jim Carrey. I love While You Were Sleeping which isn’t specifically a Christmas movie but it is set over Christmas time.


  19. This outfit is perfection! LOVE!

  20. I’m back!! Forgot to tell ya! Fav xmas movie is ‘Love Actually’!!

  21. The Santa Clause is my absolute favorite Christmas movie!

    “Sorry, I’m seeing someone in wrapping..”


  22. I’m so glad Rowan is okay! As a momma of two, I can tell you it happens. Don’t beat yourself up about it.

    I ordered the skirt! I’ve been wanting it for a while now. I used lulus17 for 20% off and got free three day ship, so it was like $38! Thanks!

    I love those. And i love Christmas story. And its a wonderful life. What do people say when you are taking pictures? You look great btw

  24. I love this outfit! Your blouse is adorable! I love watching Christmas movies during the days leading up to Christmas. I’m actually multitasking and watching Elf right now!

  25. I love:
    – The Santa Claus (but not with Tim Allen, with the elf that sells the pixiedust to evil John Litgow’s toy company)
    – The Nightmare before Christmas (that song “What’s this?!” always gets stuck in my head for days!)
    – and if I’m really honest I have a huge soft spot for Home Alone 1 & 2 as well

    And I’m looking forward to seeing “The Gruffalo” again this year – it’s an animation made for the BBC last year at Christmas, not particularly Christmas-y but totally cute.

  26. My mom and I used to watch White Christmas every year!!! Snow…snow..snow.. snow! I love all the songs 🙂 and those girls waists are about the size of bottle caps!
