Holiday Fashion Inspiration

lu-lstmnshp

If you're like me and ended up saving a bunch of gift-shopping 'til the very last minute (due to lack of funds or just being a plain ol' procrastinator)... you'll want to wear something comfy and cute when you hit the mall to grab those deals.  Start off with your most trusty pair of worn-in blue jeans.  Add a soft t-shirt and a cardi or jacket---it'll keep your arms warm in those air-conditioned igloo stores and can be removed if you start sweatin' as you madly dash from American Eagle to Express.  Speaking of sprinting around, be wise in shoe choice.  Flat boots or mocs are most reliable for comfort.  Keep your bag small; a cross-body one is handy and you won't have to worry about accidentally putting it down as you load your arms with goodies.  Accessorize simply---earring studs will do quite nicely.

If you have fancy holiday parties on your schedule of festivities, you'll want to look your absolute best... especially if that dreamy guy you've been crushing on shows up or you want to look extra lovely on the arm of your lucky bf.  Keep it classy with simple dresses in rich hues.  Opt for opaque or lacy black tights with rounded toe pumps.  In case your bare arms get chilly, have a trendy blazer nearby to cover up.  Slip a note to your fella letting him know that you're waiting for him under the mistletoe.  (And that he better hurry because you're the belle of the holiday ball!)

Ahhh, family time!  It can be all to easy to slip into sweatpants and call it a day.  But a pair of skinny jeans and a cute sweater are calling your name.  So slip on a comfy pair of furry or fringed booties and head to the coffee house or movie theatre with fam and friends.  Be sure to wear an appropriate scent that reminds those around you of fresh baked goods or a cozy fireplace.

What?  A fashion guide for Christmas morning?  Aren't you supposed to just roll outta bed, go wake mom and pops, and start ripping those presents open?  Well, yea.  But if your mom is like mine (who insists on taking pictures of me and my sibs opening presents on Christmas morn, and you have a few photos from Navidads past that you hope never see the light of day) then rolling outta bed already looking cute isn't such a bad idea.  On Christmas eve, just slip into a lovely pair of floral-printed pj pants and a tank.  In the morn, you just have to throw on some slippers (and some make-up) and you're ready for those memory-making photos.

I really love your polyvore outfit suggestions. I've actually used them as inspiration for outfits (to wear and to shop for) recently.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done.
I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia.

Aria's Room | Pretty Little Liars Decor

Welcome back for LU's 2nd room in the PLL series!  Today you're getting a glimpse into my favorite room on the show... Aria's room.  Aria Montgomery is the artistic, imaginative, bookworm of the bunch.  So it's no surprise that her room has an artsy, historic, romantic eclecticism atmosphere.  Plus, it's full of books.  My two words for Aria's attic space: Vintage Eclectic.  (Those happen to be my two favorite decorating words... so brace yourself for my soon-to-come swooning.)
