winter 2010-fair isle sweaters

5 Nov

Get in touch with your inner Scandinavian and pick up a fair isle sweater/onesie/pair of boots. Need style inspiration? Look to Kasia, Hilary, and Dree. And runway pics, thanks to Dolce & Gabbana. Unfortunately for me, my winter days are limited. Aside from the few days at Thanksgiving (still in FL, we’ll see if it cools off), I don’t really have any days necessitating clothing worthy of my Norwegian birthright. Anyone wanna take me skiing so I have an excuse?

I really really love the shorts onesie…maybe if I just kick my thermostat down I could rock that at home…

Feliz Diciembre!

1 Dec

Wowowowow…..antes I forget- HAPPY DECEMBER! I am officially now on the hunt for an advent calendar. I love these boxes of cardboard stuffed with chocolately goodness–they remind me of my grandmother (RIP Bea!)… though the one I picked up last year had some funky tasting chocolate. Maybe this year I’ll splurge and look outside of the dollar store.

Soooo TIS THE SEASON! I’m going home to mi mamita in a few weeks… around the 20th or so… para una semana! Wheee! I’m looking forward to wearing boots, tights, bar tabs under $10 and breakfast in bed courtesy of my mama. Pero, yo soy mucha triste… Novio is thinking of going to Colombia for a MONTH–meaning he will miss our anniversary, Christmas, and New Years. Soooo not ok. Yo creo he will reconsider.

Anyhoo….time for beddy. Yo tengo una grande semana ahead y I’d like to work out in la manana.
