Colorful Polka Dots & a Red Velvet Skirt

Happy Friday everyone! I wore this fairly festive outfit yesterday for Giftmas number one. (Giftmas is pre-Christmas gift opening, traditionally held before going out of town.)

I actually wore this thrifted Christian Dior polka dot top on Christmas two years ago, so I guess that's why it feels festive to me. I paired it with a red velvet skirt, which is definitely perfect for holiday times.

top: christian dior - thrifted | skirt: romwe | sparkly loafers: xhileration - target | tights: kmart | bow earrings: from mom

Outfits like this make me remember why I loved all my thrifted button-down shirts I used to wear constantly. They were in storage for so much of this year, I forgot! They really are wonderful. 
Also, my shirt is a wrinkled mess, but oh well.

Matt did a pretty fantastic job picking out presents for me. All I asked for was my camera flash and I figured that was enough of a present, but he also got me a pretty cameo necklace and a puzzle-a-day calendar. He knows me so well! It was a merry first giftmas of the year. Today will be giftmas number 2 so I'm pretty excited to open presents after dinner tonight. That's the nice thing about going out of town. We get to open stuff early here and then open the few things we get up north, so everything is spread out over weeks! 

Have a happy weekend!

I must say - your smile is so contagious, miss Jamie! Also, "giftmas" sounds fun... maybe some year I'll convince my family to try it that way?

Also, I'm not sure what it's called, but I love that other ear piercing you have!

I hope you know how adorable these photos are! That goes for the skirt as well. I love the bright color and I think the velvet is a perfect fabric for this time of year. So cute!
