Tall order: khaki skinnies, layered jackets, and lug-soled boots

This is it – we (finally) made our Christmas tree decision!!  Robin and I “adopted” a tall, somewhat homely potted fir from our neighbourhood nursery…and it’s now standing very proudly in the middle of our livingroom!!

And when I say tall, I mean really tall…it’s almost touching our 12 foot ceiling!!  Since we don’t own a ladder, I’m not sure yet how we’re going to manage with the decorations; we can’t exactly toss our glass ornaments at the branches and hope that they’ll stick!!  ;D

Actually, hubby and I were thinking about going “minimalist” for Christmas this year – believe me, the tree makes quite a statement on its own! – so maybe I can use my clothes hanger catch-pole (which I need for my double-height closet!) to at least string some lights all the way to the top!!

The plan is to move the tree out to our balcony after the holiday celebrations are over…but both Robin and I are really liking how it looks right where it is!!  Which leaves me with a question, dear readers – does anybody know if an “outdoor” tree can be kept permanently inside?!

    Oh those boots! I want 'em! Such the perfect get-the-Xmas-tree look! We got chop ours in the mountains and it's always a muddy mess. So hard to dress as cute as I want to! Anyway, perfect adorable cozy look, Monika! We'd love to see a pic of your indoor live tree! That's awesome.

    Thanks so much for sharing with Fun Fashion Friday!
