I have always been a white Christmas lights kind of girl. So classic and simple and pretty. Now I live in the desert where the lack of snow makes for a rather drab winterscape. White lights just don't seem to cut it anymore. I went a little ga-ga when I saw this photo out of J.Crew. All those big bright lights but not the least bit tacky or over the top. Classic but happy classic.
Well, I tried to do it and as with most well styled ads, it's easier seen then copied. Bulbs that large don't come with a battery pack and who wants a cord dangling from the front door. I'll have to get re-envisioned and try again next year.
