chocolate with nut(cracker)s

nutcracker dress

How adorable is this nutcracker print dress from Silly Old Sea Dog?  I'm so smitten with this UK-based shop!  They have tons of amazing novelty print dresses and skirts, and best of all, they carry to women of lots of different sizes (many of their dresses are available in UK sizes 6-28)!  And considering the dress came from overseas, the shipping was incredibly fast; it even arrived in time for me to wear it for The Nutcracker performances I had to work at the box office!  I've gotten lots of compliments on it every time I've worn it, and it's such a great holiday dress.

I can't be the only one who goes a little sugar-crazy during the holidays, right?  It's very difficult not to indulge when there are so many yummy treats around.  Luckily, this clutch from New Look satisfies my sweet tooth (at least a little bit!).  Unlike some of my other novelty clutches, this one is actually big enough to hold the necessities, and I love the little bite detail!

I'm starting to get really excited for Christmas -- especially because we were given next week off from work!  My next paycheck will be sort of sad, but I've been feeling kind of burned out lately, so I'll gladly take a little financial hit in favor of some peace of mind.  I'll be great to be able to spend time with friends and get some much-needed rest.

  1. Oh, you look so full of the Christmas spirit in this! I love it! Enjoy the break from work.

  2. This outfit is so darling! You look beautiful. And that fabric is sooo adorable. The clutch is the perfect accessory with this outfit. That's awesome you have next week off! :)

  3. I love the dress; it's been on my wish list for ages but it's a bit out of my budget atm. You look absolutley amazing in it! xx

  4. This is adorable! I love the print of your dress, and the bag! And yes! I get so sugar-crazy during this season, it's so bad! I think part of it is that I know next month I'll be doing a Whole30 (no dairy, sugar (aside from fruit), grains of any kind, alcohol, or legumes of any kind for thirty days) so I feel like I should get all I can before I'm restricted for that month! Which will probably make my sugar withdrawals worse, but... oh well.
    I'm so glad you're getting a week off! Have a wonderful time relaxing!

  5. super:)) xx

  6. You look beautiful!!! I love the print on that dress and you styled it perfectly. I wish we had snow where I live, it always makes for such a beautiful backdrop for outfits during this time of year. Also, needless to say but I am in LOVE with your clutch... it would totally satisfy my sweet tooth a little bit too, haha!

  7. It is off-the-charts adorable! (And, strange as this may sound, I know my paternal grandma would flip for it, as she's always been a major nutcracker fan and has several that she puts out each year, which she's collected over the decades.) This whole outfit is and you really are the absolute picture of holiday season adorableness, dear gal!
