Christmas is coming early this year

Christmas is coming early this year.  Don’t kill me.  I know, it’s waay too early to be thinking about Christmas.  I mean, we haven’t even made our Thanksgiving menu yet.  Well, Christmas isn’t really coming early anyway, but it’s going to seem like it.  What is coming early is Hanukkah.  In fact, it starts on Thanksgiving.  Which means that Thanksgiving is late this year.

And what that means is that we will have less than four weeks to do all the baking, singing, shopping, visiting, hugging and decorating that we want to do before the Big Day is here.  26 days, to be precise.

So what are you waiting for?  I know, it’s scandalous.  But me personally, I love the season, and I’m going to use this weekend and all next week for the holidays, plural, and just wrap Thanksgiving right in with the rest of it.

We have a great assortment of holiday accessories too. From hair bows, headbands, to tights and leg warmers. Everything you need to complete those adorable picture perfect looks.

I don’t know why Christmas Pajamas are such a tradition, except that they are nice for Christmas morning photos.  Don’t those little pumpkins look so cute in their new pjs?  My mother always made me a new flannel nightgown ever year, which I got to unwrap on Christmas Eve.  So in our family, Christmas PJs are a must – even for our teenage son.

These are not your mother’s legwarmers

Legwarmers aren’t just for jazzercise anymore!  The past several seasons, we’ve seen a resurgence in the popularity of this fun accessory, with plenty of twists & takes on an old style.  There is a dizzying array of colors and styles to wear with just about anything.  With such a huge selection available, this inexpensive accessory can change a plain wardrobe into a chic fashion-forward collection by adding color and style.  These season, legwarmers are back at their peak!

Legwarmers are the perfect overlay for leggings or tights; they look great with jeans, and they also look fantastic on their own with skirts, dresses or shorts.  Put them inside boots or over the top, with flats, sneakers or high-tops.  Super hot this season is striped legwarmers of all styles, like these Pink & Black Dance Dreams from Huggalugs.  There are three basic styles of legwarmers.  First are smaller ones that come with tights to cover & cozy the ankles and add dimension to the tights, like these leg warmers from Eliane et Lena.  The second kind are a more traditional knit legwarmer, more like the dancer type from the ’80s.  These come in prints, stripes and solids and cover the bottom half of the leg or can be stretched up to cover the whole leg.  A good example of this style is Huggalugs, which come in stripes, metallics, prints and solids, gathered or flat.  These can be pulled up high, and with a skirt look just like leggings!  They also scrunch down in beautiful gathers to cover the lower part of the leg in cozy warmth.

The third kind are the layered type, which are rows of lace or fabric ruffles sewn over a lighter-weight knit legwarmer.  These aren’t as long as the ballerina type, and not as warm, but pack a stylish punch in bright colors and interesting textures.  There are even faux fur legwarmers, like these from Wheat!
