The Chaos of Christmas

The chaos of last minute Christmas shopping has begun. A sudden, two day trip to Mammoth threw off my tightly coordinated schedule, so now I'm in stealth mode, ready to accomplish my most important mission of the holiday season...

 I adopt a covert, yet casual look with purpose and attitude. The coastal chill makes this faux fur vest over a simple off white thermal the perfect combo for a cloudy and slightly windy day at the beach. The addition of leopard print denim pants pumps up the volume of an otherwise monotone outfit. I love this grey/black combo of the leopard print. It's surprising, yet subtle - perfect for sneak attack shopping!
It was my golden opportunity to get the last minute neighbor gifts, stocking stuffers and pick up that super special gift that needs a super special hiding place...

Needless to say, I was committed to accomplishing my mission and did so with studly results. I got a little extra help from my accessories today, a fave studded belt and studded cuff. Both got a serious workout carrying bags and boxes to the car... 

Chaos is temporarily tamed by comfort.... I got to break out the new wedge sneakers from Forever 21. Love you Isabel Marant, but fashion is about the look, not the price tag - I can say that confidently after 20 plus years in the fashion business.

Thankfully, I was surrounded by my spirit guides. This necklace is one of my staple pieces. It gets worn a LOT.

With all that momentum behind me, it's no wonder  I had successful results!
