don't be jealous. it's not this warm all the time.

toto, we're not in chicago anymore.

don't be deceived. these pictures were taken last week before christmas when it was a bit warmer. it didn't get cold till christmas day. but i do love that canary yellow sweater with the mix of the floral pattern on the cami. and it was an exceptionally sunny day. it was actually kinda odd in my opinion. christmas eve was the following day - but it wasn't cold, so i wasn't exactly feeling the holiday-feeling that day.

cardigan: base exchange/ floral cami: urban outfiiters / ring: pear and peacock
watch: fossil / bracelete: pandora  (gift from my MIL)/ nailpolish: OPI big red apple

my hair is particularly crazy on this day. might be the cause of sudden un-festive humidity. or from running errands all day. who knows? it has a mind of it's own.


and remember the part of my family's christmas when we pull out our mattresses' and camp out in the living room? well, here you go - a couple sneak peeks. after partying all night (watching movies, playing with our presents), we end up being lazy, chilling out in our PJs, and eating the leftovers from the midnight meal...and of course, lounging in the living room.

i remember when i was a little kid, i loved having the mattresses on the floor for the sole purpose that it was the only time of the year that i could actually jump on the bed without being yelled at! oh, the days of simple joys. i love it.

 {happy tuesday!}
