Camel Cape, Burgundy Hat and a Cookie

 "I'm going to leave this cookie out for Santa in case he comes early,"
Princess Sparkles let us know as she put her cookie next to a drawing.
Earlier she had taped a hand written note on our fireplace that read,
"I want pixie dust and long hair" for Christmas.
I guess I should be happy she didn't ask for an iPad.

CAMEL CAPE - Jolt via Nordstrom, $35
JEGGINGS - JC Penney, $5
BURGUNDY HAT - Forever 21
BRACELETS - iSanctuary, Forever 21, Shop With a Mission
BROWN WEDGE BOOTS - Steve Madden
PIGTAILS' PINK PILLOW - Shop With a Mission

BROWN CARDIGAN - Forever 21
TYE DYE LEGGINGS - TJ Maxx
BLACK T-SHIRT - Alternative Apparel
MUSTARD BEANIE - Krochet Kids
MOTORCYCLE BOOTS - Frye

Here are two outfits I've worn recently.  The brown and black jeggings are my new fave.  I love those two colors together.  The mustard Krochet Kids beanie is from [Share] and Do Good.  Krochet Kids helps people out of poverty with their beautiful crochet pieces.  The cape I picked up online from Nordstrom last year when it mysteriously went on sale for a day.  I wore it to a "Shop With A Mission" (aka Heavenly Treasures) Tea Party on Sunday.

Sparkle's picture and cookie note for Santa.  I put the cookie in a bag so the ants didn't get it.

I love the idea of shopping with a mission.  Gives me a chance to do good things while buying stuff.   It's a win-win situation.  Much better than receiving a well-aged cookie after buying creative gifts for my kids and having to give credit to a robust bearded guy in a red suit.

Loving your look in that that cape and hat Claire! Don't you love mysterious one day only sales? Although I never seem to find any and sadly paid full price yesterday at J Crew for a pair of boots I "needed". Anyway, pixie dust and long hair seem like really sensible desires, I need to add them to my list too! Wishing you and your family a very happy New Year and hope you have a fun celebration!
