Christmas In September

necklace: gift from aunt (similar)

  1. Love the green+red combo! Wish we could wear something like that during the actual Christmas time... too bad DC gets too cold in Dec. =(

    Hello from DC metro as well!

    1. Hi Julia! It's always fun to meet other DCers on the web :) I hear ya... I'm crossing my fingers for hopefully another mild winter!

  2. How can you make a T-shirt look so classy? I saw the price and almost fell off my chair. I read the description and was wondering how these Ts feel to the touch compared to a regular T. Is it noticeably different? How about its thickness?

    Did you see SPG's post today? Baby E's adorable. I love the "inspired by Cee" half tucked look. :)

    1. The t-shirt's definitely not worth $90, even though to the touch it the fabric feels softer and thicker than cheaper tees. I bought mine on sale for ~$45 and I think even that was a bit pricey. However I loved the blue/green colors together, so to me that was worth a bit more money. I also think Saint James is popular in Europe and we are paying a price for the name too.

      I did see SPG's post! I haven't had a chance to go comment yet, but baby E pulls off the look much better than I do. It just looks better on a smaller person :)

    2. Thanks, Cee. That's more reasonable. Talking about sale, I found this frosted aqua color version on sale today:

    3. I can't see the color... is it sold out already?! With the extra 30% off, I think the tee is worth buying to try, as long as it's not final sale. I personally like the looser fit across the torso on me but the sleeves are definitely baggier than I like (so I cheated by rolling it up some).
