What a pretty parking garage

 I went to "The Nutcracker Ballet" last night in downtown Charlotte and there were gorgeous, lighted, extravagant Christmas trees everywhere, but where did I snag an outfit photo? In the parking garage. That's right -- the parking garage. Isn't it just stunning?


That's a thrifted cardigan that I refer to as my "grandma sweater." I never, ever wear it, but I can't give it away because I love it too much. Last night proved to be the perfect occasion! Trust me, it looks better in front of a Christmas tree than a parking garage wall, but really, it's grandma-licious no matter what the location.


Before "The Nutcracker Ballet," we caught another show. This one starred animatronic bears singing Christmas carols. It was kind of the best.


And to conclude this post, I have a picture of a festive, Christmas doughnut. That makes up for the parking garage shot, doesn't it?

Animatronic bears?! I'm jealous! Also, dang, what a donut. And what a parking garage! I love any kind of grandma-ish clothing :)

I wouldn't have even noticed that was a parking garage shot, however that donut made up for it most certainly. love the bears singing picture too, i bet that would have been gold to see.

I hope you don't mind me saying that at first I thought the sprinkles on the donuts were an assortment of pills.
Parking garages, concrete stairwells, bring it on! They are the BEST. Love the granny sweater.
I just watched the original Stepford Wives movie yesterday and I can't help wondering what happened to the real bears.

Your red dress is such a flattering shape and the cardi reminded me of snowballs!

So the lighting is pretty flattering in parking garages, I'll have to remember that :)
I totally have at least two similar grandma sweaters that I absolutely love- so comfy! Yours looks very festive paired with that wonderful red dress.
