LA CATRINA de LA Moda: This Christmas....

Dec 20, 2010

This Christmas....

Hello everyone :)
I have been lagging with the outfit posts because over here in LA we are having a streak of rainy, cloudy days with no sun.  I have to be honest by saying that I don't mind these rainy days, since it's been a while since we had any "true" winter weather here in LA, but I am a little bummed that these sunless rainy days have not allowed for any outfit shoots.  For one, I have been dressing very laid back and casual, especially since all of my favorite shoes are not "rainy day proof" (they are all suede, pony hair, or wood bottom) another reason being that I have not mastered shooting outfit pictures out  in the middle of pouring rain.

In the meantime I have been enjoying my break spending time with the family, gift shopping, decorating, and drinking countless cups of coffee throughout the day.  I still have to finish my Christmas shopping and wrap some presents, but other than that I am pretty much done and can enjoy these last days before Christmas.
Hope you all enjoy these lovely "pre-Christmas" days, and if you have any advice for me in making the most out of rainy days for photo ops please let me know because I am past due for an outfit post!

I love the rain and all, but it's starting to get ridiculous over here. Make it stop! Haha! You still manage to look great though, even though, it's rain central. I however, have gotten very lazy, and will throw on just about anything.
