Red Jeans, Green Sweater and Wings

"Santa, I love you, Santa!"
Pigtails looked up to the sky and shouted after seeing her gifts.
This was a complete 180 from last year when she saw Santa and ran away.
Bucket decided he would start walking for Christmas.
And Princess Sparkles, who got her pixie dust, let me know,
"Next year I'm going to ask Santa for wings."
Good thing I have a year to work on that one.

CONTRAST LEATHER JACKET - Foreign Exchange, $29
CHEVRON LEGGINGS - Loehmanns, $5
LEATHER BOOTS - White Mountain, $14 (thrifted)

RED JEANS - BDG via Urban Outfitters, $19
BROWN HEELS - Forever 21

Here are a couple red and green outfits I wore over the holidays.  I got a couple cute sweaters from the Loft, for 50% off!  The leggings are from Loehmanns when my sister, Polka Dots, and I went at midnight for a 50% off sale.  The contrast leather coat I got at the after Christmas sale from Foreign Exchange.  I was excited to wear my $19 BDG red jeans with the $8 sweater I got from Old Navy last year while I was pregnant.

The after Christmas shopping was especially fabulous this year with the 50% off sales going on everywhere.  We didn't go away for the holidays, but it was nice to have some time off from our usual hectic schedule.  But now that we're back I'm having trouble adjusting (hence not blogging for almost a month!).  I can't seem to get anywhere on time.  Maybe I need to get me some wings!

What a fabulous sweater from Loft and fun red outfit! It's unreal how flattering those red pants are on you.

I love how economical these outfits are -- you are a real bargain shopper.
