When: Tuesday November 29, 2011

Red skirt: ? (Panama)
Polka dot dress (used as top): From this seller on eBay
Black bow belt: From this seller on eBay
Black pumps: Birthday present from my friends
Black clutch: Birthday present from my parents

Work + Rested at home watching TV (Completely unproductive... but at least I rested!)

Today I finally sat down and started planning all the Christmas presents I will be giving out this year. I usually prefer planning this at least a month an a half in advance to make sure I can order things online early and/or buy things early. However, this year I am a little behind schedule (I know it's not even December yet, but I'm a neat freak like that... hehe)

Today I managed to order some presents online, so at least I feel that I am half way done with getting everyone presents. You see, I'm someone that likes to get very thoughtful gifts, so it takes me a long time to plan and decide what would be the best present. I still haven't finished (some people like my dad are SO hard to buy presents for), but I feel good that I have at least started!

Have you started planning your Christmas gifts for others?

Here are all the ways in which I've worn this red skirt:

  1. That skirt is fabulous...Love how you paired it with the black and white subtle print top.  I bought the presents for the boys, but have not even started with the adults yet!

  2. Love the print mix! I have gotten my nieces and nephews gifts and my mom a gift. I am planning to get my dad and sister's gift this weekend.

  3. Love the mixed prints and how they are broken up with the belt!

  4. Love the mix of prints and your adorable bow belt!  Christmas shopping is so hard! My mom and mother in law are the hardest to buy for since they have everything!

    So girly and cute

  6. So girly and cute.

  7. Gorgeous skirt (very festive!) and so versatile, I especially love it with the denim jacket! Lovely pearl bracelet too. And good luck with all the present buying! I love buying presents for other people, especially if you know that the person you bough it for will absolutely love it. Come to think of it, most of the time I love buying other people stuff more than buying stuff for myself. :-D

  8. Is it okay if I am in love with this skirt???  It is totally amazing.  The top that you wore with it just shows off the design even more. @GlamKItten88
