Christmas in October

Many of you think Christmas is in December.  You are sadly mistaken.  Either that, or my boyfriend just couldn't wait two more months to give me part of my gift!  This weekend, my love gifted me with these great new Ray-Bans!  I mentioned how much I lusted after them in one of my Sunday Lust List posts, and boy does he sure know how to take a hint.  These babies are mine now, and I hope to get plenty of mileage out of them before the holidays officially role around.
 Sweater: Old Navy
Button Down: Old Navy (2007)
Jeans: Banana Republic
Cami: Victoria's Secret
Shoes: xhiliration
Ray-Bans: gifted


Speaking of the holidays coming early, I have to confess: I cannot wait for Halloween because the very next day is CHRISTMAS TREE DAY at Chez Kinsey!  I put up my Christmas tree and decorations November 1st (Thanksgiving what?) and don't really mind when people Scrooge over how early it is.  I have been ready for Christmas since March, so I am counting down the days until I'm watching Elf, putting up my tree, and trimming it with all my favorite ornaments.  I realize I'm a bit overzealous about this, but what are your thoughts?  
When is it okay to start celebrating the holidays?


PS Congratulations to Linda Yan, the winner of the Stella & Dot giveaway!

November 1st? You crazy girl! :) If it makes you happy I think there is no limit to when you start celebrating something. Joy is a good thing.

Nice shades, the boy did good!

I get a real tree, so I have to wait, but if I used a fake one, it would probably be up already. I LOOOOOOOOVE Christmas! And it snowed a foot here last night, so today would be the perfect day to sing carols all about my house. And yay for boyfriends who take hints and buy pretty presents! You look great girl!

I put my tree and decorations up as soon as my husband will let me. The holiday season gets soo busy-- putting it up early allows me to enjoy it!

Holy canolie, dude, I like seeing that Old Navy has some super cute stuff going on lately (although your gingham blouse is even cuter!). I am a fan of early-up and late-down Christmas trees. We are living in a camper for Christmas this year and it makes me so sad that I don't have space-friendly Christmas decorations. Time to hunt down a mini-tree!
