Color Post: Be a BLUE Christmas...

Oh the Holidays are such a fun time of the year. My waistband keeps extending (with permission) as I totally give myself that "Holiday Weight" leeway... but how much fun it is to just relax on the workout routine in lieu of festive gatherings with the people dear to you. Of course, this laziness is a trade-off as I'll be in the Gym more times than you can say "FML" come January... such is my annual schedule.

As I told you all of my hectic weekend last week, this being the last weekend before Christmas - I am prepping myself for more Xmas parties. Speaking of which, last night I attended the Winter Party for The Boy's work. It was so much fun, set in one of downtown Portland's trendiest neighborhoods, The Pearl, and at a beautiful, urban restaurant Blue Hour.

Speaking of "Blue"... I decided to wear an iridescent blue cocktail dress last night, breaking free from my natural inclination to just wear BLACK and accessorize! I love how it had a tutu underneath to add to the girly fun and the bright color of the dress felt spirited yet not dull. I had an absolutely wonderful time rocking it.

Also, The Boy exclaimed as I got to his apartment "Look! We almost match!" as we compared rival shades of blue on our outfits. I had to explain to him that when you "ALMOST MATCH" you... CLASH. Haha, but I loved The Boy's little colors he picked out on his own so whether we matched or clashed was no matter to me (we clashed), I was just happy to be spending the evening with him.

So after being so inspired by my pretty dress, the amazing food and spending time with The Boy that I've felt inspired to treat you all to some electric blue eye candy...




I hope the rest of your weekend is fabulous and wonderful - enjoy all the calories in snacks and spirits, it would be a BLLLUUUEEE Christmas without a little self-indulgence, eh?

Happy Weekend!

Caitlin, you have matching outfits....awwwwww, you are sooooo cute together.

I know about the holiday weight leeway, I have given myself too much leeway that I'm scared to try on my jeans now. Hahaha! You know how it is with skinny jeans, you can't fake anything.

Yvonne said...

OBVIOUSLY you looked beautiful in your rival blue...

I'm such a fan of playing with shades of blue... and MAYBE sometimes accessorizing it with a little "ice" nothing goes better with a chilly azul!
