I cooked dinner for my family on Christmas Day. My look was mostly covered under an apron for most of the day. My family wanted to do something different, so I made Latin dishes from a few countries. We had chicken and chorizo paella, Mexican shrimp cocktail and South Western salad. Afterward I had more food with my beau's family. We finished the evening driving around the city looking at holiday light displays. This is what I wore.

Saturday I spent the day in Amish Country on the Christmas Cookie Tour of Inns. The 7th annual tour was held Saturday and Sunday. Twelve Amish Country Inns hosted the event and provided beautiful holiday d├ęcor for our viewing pleasure in addition to a special cookie to take away or eat if you wanted. I had a big Amish style breakfast and the Inns provided finger foods to eat, so I saved all of my cookies for later. The theme of this years event was 'Twelve Days of Christmas'. All the Inns were assigned one of the twelve days to incorporate into their holiday decorations. I had a great time exploring Amish Country which included a few stops in between the Inns to visit food markets and bakeries. My favorite stop was Broad Run Cheese House & Swiss Heritage Winery. Saturday was foggy but warm so I layered up and left the coat at home. This was my look for my day in Amish Country.

Chris's/Kris's Closet (Kristin) December 5, 2014

Kris's Closet

In this blog post you will get a glimpse of pieces in my closet, learn where I found them
 and where I wore them.  
My name is Kristin. Welcome to my closet!

It is getting cold in Columbus,so photo opportunities have become a little hard. Last Friday I took these photos inside before I went to a late lunch with my friend Dee. I have become obsessed with these tees by Accidental Genius Clothing. This is my second post wearing one. In fact in my last post I rocked their Grace Jones 'Strange`' tee; the name of the character she played in the movie 'Boomerang'. This tee is Jasmine guy as 'Whitley Gilbert' from 'A Different World'. I love that the word 'Bougie' is written brightly across the top.  I grew up on the show and was ecstatic about this tee. When I was in my twenties, I looked for tees like these and they just did not exist. 

For the look I layered the tee over a button up and paired it with a hot pink zebra stripe Marc Jacobs skirt that I have owned for years now. I thought my Betsey Johnson veiled beanie worked perfect for the look. I completed the look with a pair of over-the-knee Guess boots, a pair of large sterling hoops and a chunky silver bracelet.
