Who else is equally excited and shocked to realize that Christmas is just three days away? Looking back on childhood when I used to agonizingly count down the days to the magical 25th, I’m officially declaring myself an adult due to the fact that Christmas now comes and goes in the blink of an eye.
We took these pics a couple weeks back after one of our first Christmas shopping outings of the season. We’d spent the day leisurely browsing for gift ideas and then drove one of our favorite scenic routes home and stopped to enjoy a gorgeous hill country sunset. Although we’re nearing the end of December already, the Texas rolling hills are still vibrant with the oranges, yellows, reds, and greens of fall foliage and I find myself increasingly grateful to live in such a beautiful part of our state where we can enjoy such gorgeous vistas within minutes of our house!
Since we were out and about all day, I dressed comfortably with this cozy, soft blue sweater from Forever 21 and these black Ann Taylor coated skinnies (50% off right now!). I took my trench coat along for an extra layer to keep warm, and wore these pink smoking slippers that I’ve had for a couple years to save my feet from all our walking. This combination of a warm sweater, fitted pants, and practical accessories is one of my favorites for running errands when the weather is cool and crisp.
What’s your favorite outfit combination for a day of running errands? If it doesn’t include leggings of some sort then you’re doing better than a lot of the population ;)
