Hello, 2011!

Matt & I went out to a dinner party and then out for a quick drink with friends.  The drink was quick since Ithaca does not really acknowledge a holiday based around a late night of cocktails and all the bars stuck to their usual 1 am closing times.  That aside it was a perfect low key festive evening followed by a perfect low key sloth like day of eating, napping and football.

I had a quick twirl in the backyard before we headed out to celebrate.  I was going to take advantage of my close proximity to an H&M while I was home to find something sparkly for New Year's Eve.  Instead, I decided to take advantage of proximity to boxes and boxes of old clothes in my parent's basement and ended up plucking this red sparkly top (last worn NYE '03) from fashion obscurity and paired it with some more newly acquired duds.

Shrug- ooooold, from Loehmann's
Shirt- I.N.C. circa '03
Skirt: BCBG
Tights: Betsey Johnson via Marshall's
Booties: Seychelles via Gilt
Earrings: Simply Vera
Ring: MoMA

Today we had a leisurely stroll out to a giant waterfall.  I was looking forward to seeing how it transforms from season to season.  This is the first time we've seen it partially frozen.  It looks like I'm pretty bundled up in this photo, but as usual, I was under dressed, so we hiked briskly.  This outfit is mostly care of the Army Navy store, but the vest is a hand-me-down from Dad.  He got it on our 1983 trip to Maine.  A stop at the L.L. Bean Outlet is mandatory on any Maine vacation.

Hope you had a festive and relaxing start to the New Year!
