What I Wore Wednesday: Holiday edition #2
some of you may remember these pictures from an earlier post (and by earlier I mean last january)…
this is a dress I wore to an engagement party last winter. as I was going through my closet for holiday attire I grabbed this and thought perfect.
this dress is the perfect balance of glitz. I love the silhouette and neckline. in the picture I have it styled with a gold belt, plain black tights and metallic shoes.
however, to make it even more holiday you could do a green belt with red tights or a red belt with green tights. I love the simplicity of the dress because it leaves the styling very open…
so, what do you think? Would you wear this dress to a holiday cocktail party? Shout out your ideas and let me know. Until then I will be wardrobe planning for my upcoming events…

happy tech tuesday!!
as you know from friday’s post I discovered urban dictionary and it’s possibilities. From endless minutes of wandering, this is what I discovered about myself (and I suppose all those other Molly’s in the world)….
It was really hilarious and fun to read all of the different ways Molly is perceived. It was also a bit of a confidence booster (looking specifically at my two favorite)…
So, I encourage you to do the same, maybe you will discover something new about yourself!! If you do, come back to my blog and share what you have learned!! I would love to hear all about it…

happy snowy monday!!
the holiday season is officially upon us and the snow has arrived…
yesterday was spent indoors staying warm and dry.
I cleaned out my closets.
reorganized my house.
put up decorations.
made a batch of chili.
made a batch of tomato soup.
made homemade rolls.
made chocolate chip cookies.
caught up on tv shows.
although the snow was a bit unwelcomed it did make me unusually productive. and I like that.
so, that’s what my weekend looked like. How about yours? Shout out your ideas and let me know. Until then I will be watching a cat vs. alligator youtube video clip that continuously makes me laugh…

high five for friday.
I simply cannot believe another week has passed!! It is hard to believe that last friday I was
shopping like a crazy person.
this week was full of fun little surprise. here are the highlights:
1. charlie brown christmas. I started my week right by watching a charlie brown christmas on tv. and although I own my own copy and can watch it whenever I want there is still that pure joy of sitting down, turning the tv on and discovering that is just beginning…
2. christmas in a cup. that is what I experienced with a certain holiday blend I tried this week (but it must remained un-named because it would mean I was going against everything I believe in). but for real, it was
life week changing… so much so that I cried out in joy with my first sip.
3. hide and seek. there is a cat in the picture I swear. this is a picture of my closet, specifically my sweatshirt shelf. I came home from work this week only to find the cat nestled into all of my sweatshirts. but my closet was completely closed. how long he was in there is still a mystery to me…
4. winter has arrived. and with the christmas spirit comes the bitter cold. thankfully I bought a new winter coat over the weekend. One to fit a more casual look. You can’t see in the picture but the lining (including the hood) is multiple colored birds. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. thank you h&m. and thank you for having all coats 30% off…
5. that outfit is beastly. direct quote from a stranger at the gym. no joke. I was sitting on the bench changing my shoes when all of a sudden I hear someone say “that outfit is beastly” I look up simply because it was right in my ear. but not assuming it was directed towards me. the kid looked at me and repeated it. I looked around and he was like yes you. Is everything on your body livestrong right now? sure enough from shoes, socks, pants, jacket, tshirt and even sports bra I was wearing everything livestrong. the sad part about that fact is I didn’t even try to make it happen, it just did…
so that is my week wrapped up in one. It felt good to be back in my routine and back with my kiddos. It’s amazing how things can change in just a week. but anyways, shout out your ideas and let me know what you are up to…
weekend. two days straight for people to do absolutely nothing (Just Sayin’).
well my friends he is at it again.
kid president is inspiring my therapeutic thursday with some humor, some weirdness and some insight.
Take a few minutes to watch the video and absorb what he has to say, then you can get back to work.
Enjoy your relaxation!!

Oldies but Goodies…
the theme of this week’s what I wore wednesday post is holiday style.
I have decided to change things up for the month of december and instead of styling one staple item piece various ways I am going to put together a few holiday outfits instead.
This first look titled “oldie but goodie” is full of things I have had in my closet for years (sorry to burst any bubbles if you like the stuff). This is how I say merry christmas without wearing an ugly sweater (unless you think that sweater is ugly)…
back to the point.
this is an outfit I would wear to a christmas party that is a little bit on the casual side. It’s not an ugly sweater party but it’s not a cocktail party either. It’s just a come - over -and - celebrate - the - upcoming - holidays party.
What I like about the outfit is that I can play around with so many aspects of it. I could pair the sweater with jeans to tone it down. I could wear metallic black tights and a patent leather belt to dress it up.. or I could wear it just how it is. the versatility is wonderful.
So, what do you think? Looking forward to the holiday attire? Shout out your ideas and let me know. Until then I will be finding more up to date items in my closet to play around with.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. for your wardrobe that is (Just Sayin’).
happy tech tuesday!!
Today I would like to present to you a website I was introduced to over the weekend.
This site is designed for either apple devices or android devices. (which is awesome).
It’s literally like hitting the yellow dot clearance rack at boston store and having extra coupons. or finding a treasure at goodwill and realizing it’s 50% off day.
The site has category after category of different apps you may be looking for. Some I have never seen before and others that are extremely popular. The apps that aren’t free are discounted from their usual price (which is always a bonus)!!
So, go ahead and check it out. My latest download is a blogger app called BlogTouch that helps me write posts on the go but I know there will be more to come..
now it’s your turn to share. Have you used this site before? Are there any apps you are dying to share? shout out those ideas and let me know. Until then I will continue perusing…
It’s really hard to get moving this monday morning.
my case of the mondays have really got me draggin’.
my weekend was jam packed with family fun that it’s quite a let down to be off and headed to work. it seems too soon.
friday I took part in the craziness of black friday shopping and it was exhilarating. I literally shopped until I dropped but it was totally worth it. I am almost completely done with my christmas shopping…hooray!!
sunday I had a relaxing afternoon watching white christmas in the theatre. it was absolutely perfect and amazing. exactly what I needed to end my long weekend.
but now it’s back to reality and I am not sure I am prepared for that. An IV of coffee would help the situation.
So, how was your weekend? Do anything fun? Shout out your ideas and let me know. Until then I will be counting down the days until christmas break…
keep calm and watch white christmas (Just Sayin’).
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!
I will be indulging in delicious food, pumpkin pie and Garfield’s Thanksgiving!!
Enjoy your time with family and friends, see you tomorrow!!
I am thankful for all of the shopping deals this weekend (Just Sayin’).
What I Wore Wednesday….
As I am packing to head home for the weekend I am torn between which outfit I will wear on thanksgiving…
(I get it #firstworldproblems)
but it’s a debate that has kept me awake at night.
cute vs. comfortable
old vs. new
layers vs. one piece
the benefits just keep coming for both sides.
which is where you come in. Which one do you like better? Shout out your opinion and let me know!!
