Blurry Pictures, Christmas Lights, and Good Company

Hello, world!

Just to kick off the start of finals, it’s a tradition at my university for the faculty to open their homes nearby campus and offer lots of holiday treats. I attempted to take pictures to blog for you guys, but I could not figure out the settings on my camera, so lots of the pictures are terribly blurry (Though, some of them turned out pretty cool though with all the Christmas lights!). It was such a fun night though; with friends from dance and my roommate, I had too much fun acting like I knew how to use my camera and eating all the treats.

101 Dalmatians

Hello, world!

When I was back home for Thanksgiving, I met up with some friends from college and high school to do some Black Friday shopping and catch up. Black Friday was insane, and my friends’ and my favorite froyo place closed a month earlier; but good food and great company make any day wonderful. I especially love the fact that my friend acknowledged that I was wearing a polka dot button down and a dalmatian sweater (Hi, Alex, if you’re reading this).

I’m really missing home as I’m writing this blog post, and I’m dreading finals next week. Good luck for those taking finals!

All About That Beige

Hello, world!

The temperature here has drastically dropped in the past couple of weeks, and so this outfit is not totally appropriate. However, throw on a thick coat and scarf, and you instantly are weather appropriate. Thanksgiving Break is just around the corner, and I’m so excited to finally go home and see all my family. This would be a nice, family-friendly outfit for Thanksgiving dinner (and the skirt is Thanksgiving-belly-forgiving).

Fall Lookbook 2014

Hello, world!

There’s something about fall. Everyday, I seem to fall in love. In love with saying goodbye to summer and hello to the incoming chilly months. In love with the comfort of layers and scarves. In love with the warmth of colors around me. In love with the crunch of leaves underneath my shoes. And even, in love with the mark of classes beginning again. There’s a wealth of things to love this season. You just have to fall in.

Finally, finally, finally, I uploaded my fall fashion lookbook for this year.  It’s almost winter, but hey, better late than never, right?

First outfit: J.Crew sweater (similar), Banana Republic trench coat, Forever 21 skirt (old), Lucky boots(similar), Michael Kors bag (old)

Second outfit: J.Crew sweater, Old Navy utility jacket, Loft skirt, Lucky boots (similar)

Third outfit: Loft blouse, Ann Taylor skirt, Dolce Vita boots(similar), Saturday bag (not on site anymore), thrifted necklace

Too Cropped for Comfort

Happy Sunday, world!

Jogger-style pants have been in style lately, but instead of going out and splurging on a new pair, I went home last weekend and raided my closet to find a very similar style pair that I purchased over the summer. It’s not quite the same style, but it’s easy to shop your own closet to recreate and experiment different trends. The print and style are already bold, so I opted to keep everything else simple with a plain, cropped sweater (found on sale at Target!) and neutral outerwear and accessories.

Fall for Florals

Hello, world!

Florals are mistakenly categorized for the spring and summer, but I love the juxtaposition of the flower prints and the falling leaves. This maxi dress is so comfortable, and I decided to dress it down with my utility jacket just for some color as well. I wore this outfit out for a nice brunch. It’s barely showing signs of fall (still) in Texas, but I’m so glad the weather is cooling off this week.

What I’ve Been Up to Lately | August – September 2014

Good evening, world!

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, so posts have been slowly sadly. I decided as a way to keep in touch with y’all, I wanted to share some snapshots of my life including my first day of class selfie (top, middle) with my roommate (as you can tell, I am waaaaay excited for organic chemistry II) and even my birthday, which was this past week. I’m not huge into celebrating my birthday, but I am so grateful for all the love (and food, especially donuts haha) I received from family, old, and new friends.

Thanks so much for reading and being so patient with me! Have a lovely weekend! c:
