The day after Thanksgiving seems to be the marker of the beginning of the holiday season, so yesterday I broke out my festive-and-much-neglected sequin tank top which Jenna Lyons told me to buy last winter swearing by its versatility which I have yet to discover adequately. However, I did see a really cute girl a few months back wearing a sequin tank top with a similar-toned scarf and cardigan, and it seemed to mellow out the sequins a bit by blending them into a neutral color palette. I tried her trick yesterday and liked it, even if I ended up looking a bit like a brown bear preparing for a disco ball. The weather was gorgeous, so I rode my bike to Georgetown to meet Kelsey, Eric, and Megan for lunch and to do a little holiday shopping for family members. Then I lugged my sparkly self back up the hill for a quiet evening preparing for the madness of end-of-term grading, dissertation editing, and freelance work that awaits me in the next few weeks.
