Merry (and Warm) Christmas

From my most recent business trip ... the hotel's charming greeting.
Pretty and festive by the elevators.
Not during the most recent but from the February visit with my dad.
I thought it a lovely image for Christmas time.
A snow surprise made pretty of his leafless tree.
That was then and I dreamt of this ...

Or even this for today.

But it was hot.
It felt much warmer than what the temperatures said.
So this is what I wore.
Nope I did not take a pic of me in jammies.
No chance for that visual to go viral.
 
I hope you all had a cozy and wonderful day with your loved ones.
Merry Christmas.

    1. I'm sure you are right about that, CSW. As soon as we get our damp cold (cold for us), I'll be whining that I can't tolerate it.

  3. I am pretty stunned at that temperature, I stayed in a low rent version of your outfit all day yesterday - think gnarled old sweats - Merry Christmas TR!

  4. Merry Christmas, tr, I have that tee too, and I love it. Oh, I treasure my elderly J.Crew tees, they're what deserves to be hand-washed in unicorn tears and gently folded up between layers of non-oxidizing tissue paper.

    1. Going through my closets these past couple weeks definitely has me treasuring elderly J.Crew things. So that's how to preserve them, must find the unicorns! ;)

  8. Well you had a bit of snow this year and that is probably enough to last you the season. Love your outfits, especially the pajamas. Cozy and comfy, that is what Christmas should be about!

    1. I've always thought perfection would be two weeks of fluffy snow for the year so a visit would be just about right. Thanks, xoxo, I hope you and yours are also cozy and comfy through the holidays.

    1. Thank you, Louise, and you as well. That France cardi is one to treat as WFF suggests, washed in unicorn tears and wrapped with non-oxidizing tissue paper ...

  11. We have had a very warm Christmas too - not a hint of Plaid in sight in these parts, it was sandals and Caftans.
    Love your picture of the holly and snow -it does look so beautiful. Merry Christmas xx

    1. Sandals and caftans ... hmmm, definitely not what I'd think of for Christmas. The images of snow are beautiful but some have had a difficult time with the freeze this winter ...

      Is it cooling off for you or does it get warmer still? Best wishes for a very happy new year, Heidi.

    1. Well, come on over, Jen, it's still mid to high 70s and sunny here. That T always makes me smile and I thought the PJ bottoms perfect for unwrapping presents, don't you think?

    1. I'm getting in as much as possible of the festive tartans. There's a point when it just doesn't feel right, especially in sunny and warm S Calif.
