I went to Florida to visit family over Thanksgiving. I feel like I could get used to that. It’s definitely harder to get the holiday blahs when you can wear shorts next to a Christmas tree.

Purse: Yves Saint Laurent (same as above)
Beach hat: Gottex (2013)

I don’t think that purse has been on the blog before, even though I’ve been using it a lot. I have to give credit to MrB for selecting it while we were in Paris this summer. I was examining the style in black, but MrB got very excited about gray and it was definitely the right choice. I love it!

When I wasn’t lurking by holiday decorations in Florida, I worked on maintaining my pallor while at the beach. A hat, big sunglasses and an umbrella are musts for me.

I came home in time to attend the Women’s Jewelry Association holiday party, where I got to see lovely jewelry peeps including Cheryl Kremkow, Jennifer Heebner, Beth Bernstein and Hannah Connorton. I wore a vintage Jacques Tiffeau dress that I’m very fond of.

Because I was seeing jewelry people, I got a special pair of earrings out of the vault — my diamond-and-peridot Susan design.

I came home minus the gold squirrel necklace I started out with: I sold it right off my neck to Jennifer! She couldn’t resist the sale price. Now the gold squirrels are sold out but I’ve still got a few silver squirrels available for holiday delivery. They’re on sale for $25. Don’t miss out!

  2. The snow is always greener . . . here I am in Florida, wishing for a chance to wear a sweater and boots. Your vintage dress is fabulosa!

    MrB sure has great taste in bags. If my count is right, you’re averaging 1.5625372037464 bags per year as gifts from him.

    I love those zippy tops you were wearing with the shorts. It’s also nice to see the green dress out and about! Would that be lime? Pistachio? Peridot?

  4. Excellent shorts / mesh jacket holiday looks – up top is candy with your turquoise skull, and the greys and black hat are so elegant. Your peridot earrings are amazing with that dress!
