Monthly Outfit Roundup: December 2014

jules in flats: personal style blog - business casual workwear on a budget

Hi everyone!  How were your holidays?
Ours were (and still are) going great!  It was different for us this year as we weren't with our usual crew (my parents, siblings and their partners/kids, and my Aunt/Uncle/Cousins).  My parents and brother are in New Zealand, and my Aunt and Uncle decided to go to California in their RV so the rest of us kids decided to do our own thing!  T & I headed to Vancouver Island to spend the holidays with my cousin, her fiance, and her fiance's family.  It was really fun!  And I definitely (ahem) overindulged!  Prior to this year, I never really felt like I overate at the holidays - we would only have two big meals - brunch and dinner, both on Christmas Day.  Other than that we eat normally - with a few extra treats around for temptation of course :)  This year, we ate like Kings for 4 meals in a row, with either a big breakfast or dinner on the other days.  Oy!

Anyways, here's a look at what I wore in December!

I don't think I'll do a yearly roundup, or a favourite outfits of 2014 post, but in any case, this will be my last post of 2014!  I'm not one to make resolutions or do much goal-setting for the New Year - how about you??  One thing I do hope to improve this year is my photography, and in turn, this blog.  So the format and/or posting frequency may change, and I would like to update the blog design as well.  Please let me know if you have any feedback!

December Outfits: Week Three


Hi everyone, how was your weekend?
Saturday was my last day at work until January 6th so we spent the weekend relaxing and getting ready to head to Vancouver Island on Tuesday.

I can't believe it's Christmas this week!  It totally doesn't seem like yet - even though Christmas music and decorations have been going since November, plaid and sequins are filling up my Pinterest feed, and I've had my fair share of rum & eggnog already :)

I'll probably post again next week with my monthly outfit roundup for December, and then again in the second week of January.  Or maybe I'll do a "Favourites of 2014" post or two in between, we'll see!

Did you all have a lovely weekend?  Getting into the holiday spirit?
We had our holiday party for work, last week, and it was great!  We went to L'Ufficio, next door to La Quercia, and had an excellent 8-course Italian dinner, with flowing vino to boot.

This weekend T went to Seattle so I had some "me time" in which I did my Christmas shopping, painted my nails, went grocery shopping, did holiday baking, and binge-watched The Good Wife.  I don't like when T goes away (I miss him!), but I made the most of my alone time.  I hope you all had a great weekend, too!

And this faux fur vest!!  I have been waiting to tell you all about it!  I have wanted a black faux fur vest for ... oh .. about two years now and have not been able to find one that I like for under $100!  I was at the point where I was seriously considering buying this one from Aritzia for $110, when a jaunt into the Kid's section at H&M revealed this beauty for only $25!!  I removed the faux leather belt and pinned back the buttons that would snap the vest closed because I found the floral lining a bit distracting.  I want to wear it with everything but am trying to limit myself to once per week.  This blog will keep me accountable!
