Festive Pink Blazer and $500 Nordstrom Giveaway

Hi, everyone! I hope you all have survived the first week of December! I did a little bit of Christmas shopping online during the Cyber Weekend, but I still have more to do, and I am not feeling it for some reason. I need to get myself into the Christmas spirit STAT! I have not listened to one Christmas carol or watched a Christmas movie yet. Usually, by this time of the month, I am in full force. Maybe it’s because this is going to be a very different Christmas. I will explain later. Today is all about this festive pink blazer.

Pink is Festive For The Holidays

I have never thought of myself as a “pink” girl, but the second I tried on this blazer, I was all in. Honestly, this is the right shade of pink for me and the right cut. I was gifted this pink blazer from Veronica Beard to wear to the Fashion Group International Night of Stars Dinner a few weeks back. I wrote about the dinner here. This blazer is amazing and comes in black as well and has a matching pant. I know we ( I ) generally don’t think of wearing pink during the holidays, but I think this look is just as festive as anything else. The key is to throw something sparkly underneath like the sequin tank I am wearing from Shop Avara and add a metallic shoe. I would love this blazer over an all-white look too!

Sad Tree This Year

So, I mentioned that I wasn’t feeling the Christmas spirit yet. I think it is because this is going to be the first year that we will be alone without any of our children. All of the gifts are going to be mailed or distributed way before the 25th (I am hoping!), leaving nothing under the tree. I’ve known that there would come a time that this would happen, so it’s not a surprise, I am just feeling a little sad about it. We talked about taking a trip, but I am having surgery on the 27th, and we would have to be back on the 26th. Anyway, I know many of you have already experienced your kids not being home for the holidays. I think once we do it once, it will be easier the next time.

I feel like I am on a spinning hamster wheel right now, and I bet a lot of you feel the same way. I spent the afternoon yesterday at a foot doctor to find out why the top of my foot is hurting. It turns out that I have a stress fracture and am now in a boot. Y’all, I have no idea how I got it. I woke up last Friday with my foot hurting when I walked. The doctor said that because I’ve had chemotherapy, I’m at a higher risk for fractures. Breast cancer is the gift that keeps on giving! Honestly, I hope it’s the worst thing I have to deal with! It’s all GOOD!
