Christmas mullet

Dec 17, 2017

You may be wondering why I've entitled this post, Christmas mullet. Let me explain myself dear friends. This outfit I'm about to debut to you is the perfect blend of casual and fancy. It says, "I'm business up top and party on the bottom." If outfits could talk anyway, that's what she'd say. I also refer to all my outfits as ladies because duh…we ladies are classy creatures๐Ÿ’.

I hope you're getting an opportunity to reflect on the real reason we run around like whirling dervishes this time of year. Not to get the perfect present, to consume un-Godly amounts of calories in the form of all-the-peppermint-things, to go gawk at all the twinkly lights or watch Christmas Vacation for the 1,000,000 time. All these things by the way, I've done and aim to continue doing until 8 days from now. But the REAL reason we find ourselves in the midst of this season is because of Jesus. I know you know that. But to really sit, and think and marinate on it, is different. To take on the weighty realization that a helpless, innocent, baby was sent to live a completely perfect, sinless life here on earth to go die on a cross for you and for me to save me and you from an eternity of separation for Him is pretty huge. And I for one, am guilty of not acknowledging it enough, the absolute bigness of that act. I plan on going out in a bit and drive through our churches living nativity. I'm aware churches do this all over the country and even the world. But its and up close, tangible way to worship and see a slight glimpse into my savior's birth and I'm pretty pumped about it. I truly wish you all peace, comfort and joy during this most wonderful time of year.

Now, I'm off my little soapbox, and on to the deets of my Christmas mullet!


Did you even know they made sweater blazers?! Me either! If you did, just play along and act surprised with me, k? Thanks. I originally wanted a boyfriend blazer from J. Crew Factory but when I went in store they were sold out and had these instead. Now that I have this though, I'm glad I got it! It's one of those key pieces that can go fancy or casual and it's much warmer and transitional than a structured blazer. This one is linked here and on sale! My flannel boyfriend shirt is from my true blue, best bud Old Navy. It's a bit oversized in fit which I lurv, so I can front tuck it and hide all my holiday kibbles and bits ๐Ÿ˜ปand it's on mega sale, linked here.  My necklace is kinda hard to see, but it's a collar statement necklace from the ol' factory a few years back, but i've linked a similar option here. My earrings I'm pretty sure you can't see at all lol but I'll still tell ya about em' because I love em'! I got these at the Silobration back in October and they have been on repeat in my ear holes. A local, Texas jewelry maker EM Jewelry designs made them and they are perfect for everyday wear. I'll link them here

My jeans have been a hot topic amongst the old timers and my husband, whom is basically a blue hair disguised in a 32 year old body. These are raw hem jeans from Old Navy, they are stretchy, soft and wonderful. I heart them, hard. But my parents and Old man Joe, who were raised to hem their pants and patch the holes in their jeans see this new trend as blasphemy. My mom would say "honey, did you know you're pants are messed up? I hope you didn't pay good money for those." I did mom, I did. All this to say, I like raw hem, and if you do too, here's a great affordable option linked up for ya right here.  If raw hem's aren't your cup o' tea, then do your thang Jelly Bean. 



My last, and arguably favorite part of my wardrobe today, are these New Balance gold cuties I scored from J. Crew, linked here on cyber Monday! I've been eyeing these babes for quite a while and they are my new favorites. They are neutral and have juuust the right amount of sparkle for my life and bring together the whole mullet party together. My only hesitation in purchasing these is that I'm basically a real life, adult version of pig-pen from Charlie Brown, for realisies.  So I wear these clean, bright, tennis  shoes with great trepidation, fear and a Magic Eraser in my pocket in case they get soiled by my inevitable filth.

Well guys, Christmas is approaching so fast this year, for me at least. I'm starting to believe all the people that we're older than me years ago, that said "time flies the older you get". It's so true! The last couple years have seemed to clip by at an alarming rate. Any who, I truly hope you enjoy time with your loved ones, maybe Santa leaves you something sweet in your stocking and you get a genuine opportunity to reflect on the birth of our Savior. I'll try to do one more post before Christmas, but I can't promise, because #life. So if this is the last time I talk with you guys before Christmas, Merry Christmas to you and yours!! Love, me ๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’๐ŸŽ„
