...and i thought i left white tights back in the 3rd grade.
i seriously thought that was an accessory i'd never, ever try again. i thought wrong 'cause apparently these white tights (actually they are more cream than white) were calling me by name name this weekend while the fam and i went black friday shopping. you can't tell by the pics by they have a sweet almost lace-like pattern to them, plus they are a little thicker - my favorite kind of tights.
with the temperatures cooling off tremendously, i wore the white (ahem, cream) tights to church on sunday along with one of my fave red pair of heels. i think what i love about fall and winter in the south is that i can actually walk around in heels or in cute boots without worrying about breaking my back on the sidewalk or ruining my shoes. i wore heels at my old job in chicago but always trudged in the snow in my snow boots, then changed once i got to work. (oh you bet my closet at worked was lined with heels!) and i hardly wore skirts and even tights like i wear here 'cause it was always so stinkin' cold! i stuck with dress pants that i could stick in my boots. chicago is one fashionable city - but once winter hit, all we cared about was staying warm!

in other news...
as i mentioned last saturday, my family were on the hunt for black friday deals. later that day (even after our crazy morning), we made a trip out to savannah, also part of our black friday tradition. even if we're not shopping, we like to head down there to kick off the holiday season. we specifically checked out Oglethorpe Mall where they have this cool christmas decor that my parents took us to when we were little, so it's always fun to revisit it when we can. it's a different setting than the one i used to see when i was little. it used to be this sweet teddy bear choir...now it's a train ride for the kiddies. its still beautiful - but sorry kids, i think the bear choir was sweeter.
oh and i love that pic of mom and dad. mom was actually on the phone with our other sister (who was spending the holidays with her hubby and his family), so when we took the picture, daddy decided to pull out his phone to be "cool" too. oh, daddy. he never stops making us laugh.
