Today is Open To Interpretation day with Kayla, Erica, and Amy. I love doing these challenges, but this one was seriously hard. A pencil skirt and heels is great for some days, but not so much for a day when you’re home with Peanut and his two two-year-old friends and acting as a referee, a trampoline, and a cafeteria lady.
So mostly for modesty purposes, I went with the maxi skirt, and threw on some sparkly flats for good measure.
Head on over to the othergirlsblogs to see how everyone else interpreted the look!

For me, the worst part about the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas is the waiting game. I may be twenty four, but I’m still eight years old when it comes to Christmas. It’s particularly bad when you’re not spending Christmas with your parents, so your mom ships stuff directly to your house and you’re forced to wrap your own gifts. Self control is not my strongest attribute, so wrapping a shoe box with a pair of new shoes for you inside is pure torture. I promise, I did not peek…but I was tempted.
Luckily, my mom helped tide me over by buying me these amazing orange cords as an early Christmas gift. She also picked them out. I’m much too chicken to buy a pair of orange pants — but what do you know? I love them. She’s pretty much the reason I have anything interesting in my closet. You’re the best, Mom.
I’m linking up with Kayla today for Open For Interpretation.
We used this outfit as inspiration. Perfect for my orange pants’ debut….but now I’m pretty sure I need some red pants. Head on over to her blog to see her interpretation of this outfit, as well as a bunch of other bloggers outfits!
