I got a late start on this post because tonight was one of the holiday traditions at our house that is a non-negotiable…
…the annual viewing of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. Yes, I own it on DVD and yes, I will in all likelihood watch it again before the season is over. Even so we always watch the premiere, with commercials, on CBS. Every. Single. Year. It has been my hands down most loved never miss Christmas show since I was but a wee one. Even in high school and college, I eagerly awaited the annual appearance of my red-nosed misfit friend.
Traditions were something that were hard to come by during my childhood; you’ll have that when you were raised by wolves. Therefore, making special traditions for my kids, even if it’s something as seemingly inconsequential as watching Rudolph every year, has always been incredibly important to me. I have seen Rudolph so many times that I can recite the lines and sing the songs right along with the characters, as can my son. And I’m proud to say, that as of tonight’s showing my daughter does it as well.
Last year I mentioned that my daughter was amused when I proudly proclaimed “I want to be a dentist!” along with Hermey the elf. This year baby girl was singin’ and recitin’ right along with me…#proudmama. That might not seem to be of earth shaking consequence to most, but to me, it means the world.
Apparently I have an unintentional theme going on. Friday’s post featured a chiffon skirt and my now on constant rotation BLANK NYC moto jacket. In my defense, if it lived at your house, would you not wear this jacket every chance that you got? And yes, while today’s post also features a chiffon midi skirt, the overall look is an entirely different beast. Nude chiffon midi skirt with pleats; and while my previous outfit skewed more girly with the a masculine element, today’s post is definitely more sporty tomboy with an added feminine element via the skirt. See the difference now?
I actually wore this a couple of weeks ago, and it was one of those outfits that was an across the board hit. Thirteen year old’s to fifty-somethings, male and female, it was apparently liked by all. I don’t think that it was any single piece, but instead the overall effect of the pieces together. And in case no one has told you yet, Adidas Superstars possess magical powers. No matter what you pair them with you somehow become exponentially cooler. That’s a fact my friends.
Adidas Superstars. Get some. You won’t regret it. Not only will they make even your pajamas look cool, they are so comfortable you’ll be running circles around your stilettoed friends.
