Don’t stress out about the holiday family party
Now the holiday season is in full swing. Everyone seems to be in stress to get some last minute shopping done. Even though everyone has made the resolution a year ago to start shopping for gifts early. Why is that that one always forgets that aunt, uncle, cousin whomever? Or why does with a sudden that family member who hasn’t shown up for ages to any of the family reunion Christmas parties announce to come? You haven’t seen that person in ages! Admittedly, you don’t even care about seeing him/her! Be ok with that fact. It’s just once a year.You can only choose one family member - your spouse. All others are free bees. #family Click To Tweet
Now what to get as a gift? Not to say, all other family members are clueless too. Even more tricky is that XYZ has announced to introduce his/her fiance. What to give to that person to make him/her welcome? Someone you know nothing about except that XYZ is crazy about him/her. A gift card? Chocolates from a famous store of your state? But what if the person has diabetes? Best you ask XYZ and hope XYZ has a clue.
Anyhow, I wish you all a great holiday season. Try not to stress out about gifts so much. Shouldn’t it be all about the spirit?
Your favorite posts and outfits in November
December also means wrapping up what happened in November on the blog. The post that was the most read last month was also the one that got the most likes: The review of Covered Perfectly’s teardrop shirt. It’s a perfect layering piece and super soft.
You can find this cute top and many other posh chic tops specially cut for mature women at link.
The post that got the second most likes was Tomboy look over 50.
The post that was read the second most was electrostatics or why clothes release sparks. Aren’t these sparks annoying? Not to mention that they can hurt a lot!

Top of the World OOTDs
The Top of the World Style Winner is picked by a random generator from the party two weeks ago. The reasons are as follow: Each party runs a week minus 5 minutes. At the time of scheduling a new party, the old party is still in full swing and blogger still can join. To give all guests the same chance, the old party has to have closed before drawing the winner. In plain English, the Top of the World Style Winner visited the linkup party two weeks ago.
Top of the World Style Winner
The winner of this week’s feature is Claudia the lifestyle blogger at Claudia Lasetzki. She linked up her winning post at the 138th Top of the World Style party. She wore a classic, but comfy black and white look when shopping in Braunschweig, and old German city. Who said that comfy and chic would exclude each other?

Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav
Readers, you clicked the thumbnail of Daisy the most. She is the blogger at Lazy Daisy Jones and became Top of the World OOTD Readers’ Fav. Her outfit with floral dress, embroidered leather jacket and patent leather boots is a real statement look. The edginess of a motorcycle leather jacket cut and patent leather boots balance the romantic vibe of embroidery and floral.
