Hello friends! I’m happy to report that I am officially done with my Christmas shopping. I’ve been a little quite on the blog for the last few days because I have been a busy little elf shopping, buying and wrapping. I don’t have that many people that I buy for (small families FTW!), but I still love the whole Christmas present shopping process.
This is a 6-week challenge that started the Monday after Thanksgiving and goes into the first January. I missed signing up for the first round by a few days so I got on board for Round 2. There is a daily tasks calendar, prizes, weekly newsletters, and my favorite part…you are paired with another “elf” to serve as support buddies for the challenge!
After I was finished being an elf for my loved ones, I did a little shopping for myself. Heh. Figures.
This weekend was the SOWA Holiday Market and this is a can not miss event for me each year. I picked up a few goodies for friends, but I also managed to find a few things that I enjoyed.
Earrings from Leetie Lovendale <—Greatest name ever! These earrings are all made out of vintage lucite.
I also snagged up a pair of arm warmers, one of my favorite winter accessories, from I Heart Arm Warmers. They have appeared on the blog before. All of the arm warmers are made out of not-worn-any-longer sweaters. The pic on the right is the actual color.
They are also doing more accessories now so I picked up this super cute clutch.
Just like the SOWA Market each weekend, this event was packed. They were playing Christmas music and had festive decorations so I didn’t mind the crowd too much.
I have a few holiday parties coming up in the next few weeks so I figured while I was out I would pick up a few items to complete the looks I am planning on.
One of the dresses that I have I plan on wearing to two events. One party is in December and the other in January, for two totally different groups. No one will know. 😉
I am going for two different looks by changing up my jewelry.
From Forever 21 I picked up this great bejeweled necklace and found matching earrings. I have sparkly black flats and a clutch to tie it all together!
I also picked up this amazing peachy floral necklace at Forever 21. It paired perfectly with a pair of jeweled earrings that I found at Call It Spring. I’m wearing a pair of patent leather nude heels with this combo and adding a rose gold clutch that I also got at Call It Spring.
My shopping is done. My outfits are ready to go. The Elf for Health Challenge is on its way. This is going to be a great week!
Tonight I’m heading out to have dinner with a bunch of my girlfriends for our annual Girls Holiday Dinner. I’m so excited! Have a great day!
Have you finished your holiday shopping?
