It’s been a crazy couple of weeks and I am finally back with some outfit posts that I have been working on! Last week was rather stressful and I was pulling some late nights in lab so I can finish everything up before I headed to the east coast for the holidays. It is rather nice to relax and shut my brain off from work, and not have to think about anything “complicated” other than what I am going to eat and do that day! It is really nice. My headaches have started to go away and I realized they are all caused by stress! I am also trying to catch up on my sleep, something I got very little of this past quarter and had never been able to catch up on!
This last week was full of various holiday parties after work, so I decided to wear some cute transitional outfits that were appropriate to wear to work and also could easily transition to a holiday party later in the evening!
I have been posting this latest outfit on Instagram, if you haven’t caught my sneak peak, here is the outfit! I am obsessed with wearing red this holiday season! My mom sent me this red lace top that is perfect for the holiday season, that I believe is from Target (Shop similar here). I also paired it with these black leggings that are super comfortable, and they are actually my workout pants from Fabletics, but I have been wearing them to work and outings because they are so cute and simple! No one can tell they are workout pants! For work/lab, I wore my hair up in a pony tail so it would be out of my way and these black hidden heeled sneakers from Sketchers, that give a little length to my legs, and then before I left for the holiday party, I just let my hair down and changed into these knee-high leather heeled boots that I have had in my closet for about 3 years now — I bought these from Ross/TJ Maxx (Search Similar Here) a while ago and never wore them! I have been doing “shopping” in my closet and finding pieces that I haven’t worn in a long time, like these boots and also this really pretty red jacket from Forever 21! (Shop Similar Here). It is kind of nice to find these old/new pieces because I was starting to get really bored with my wardrobe and been itching to go shopping, even though I don’t have money! Accessories I pulled together this gold bracelet from Charlotte Russe, a neutral tassel bracelet from the Yayoi Collection at Boyajian Trend Gallery, and some earrings also from Charlotte Russe.

My sweet Andrea, you look absolutely wonderful!! Wishing you and your family a wonderful Holiday! I hope it's filled with much love and laughter! Sending you much love, my dear friend!
Dear Andrea, hello! Guess what, you just read my mind – I was with your blog ready to comment yesterday and then I left for today, the 24th, to wish you a great Christmas – but then you were faster and wrote to me 🙂 Thank you so much, you are so lovely, always! I am sorry about your headaches, and glad they are vanishing, and I believe it is the cause of stress. I also couldn't see that these are workout pants, and you look amazing!!!! I love red and black and golden together, on the accessories! You look perfect, and I know that I had a busy Nov and Dec, like everybody else, so I was a bit absent, but would like to wish you a great Christmas time now! In January things will be more peaceful and I can visit blogs often – mid Jan all will be better! Merry Christmas, dear Andrea!!!!

Great dress for the vacation party,it look nice on you!
Games at a party are always enjoyable. And a pool party is a great way to plan your holiday party. But one thing that you always need to remember is that you must be there to guide the kids. This is to ensure that they are safe in the pool.
