Noir

{Oxfords: Target -- Skirt & Hair Bows: Forever 21 -- Cardigan & Top: Urban Outfitters}






Hey Everyone!
I am so tired it feels as if I barely have enough energy to write out this post! I've made it safe and sound back home and have pretty much just slept a lot. I've met up with some of my old friends and have been having a lot of fun. It's amazing how much you miss home, even if you don't notice till you're there. I found I had even been missing the clean smell of my moms car. Yikes haha. And I missed the smell of the house and the way the light shines through my old bedroom before dusk. It's the little things that have really been getting to me. To avoid further sentimental attacks I've made sure all my days are busy and I even finished another book this morning. Now I'm on to the fourth Game of Thrones book, A Feast For Crows by George R.R. Martin, and I can already tell it's going to be amazing.

There is a lot I could say, but I cannot summon the enthusiasm to talk about it all, perhaps next post. I think I'll go take a nap now. Happy Holidays ladies! (and gentlemen!)

School Girl

{Shoes: T.U.K. -- Dress: New Look -- Sweater: H&M -- Backpack: Urban Outfitters -- Bow: Handmade}





Over the past weekend Urban Outfitters had an extra 50% off sale items and I was filled with absolute glee when I saw this backpack was only $10.00! It's so cute and yet it's still roomy enough for all my books and my water bottle and such. I know this semester is almost over, but I'm looking forward to getting some use out of it in the Spring. 

I only have two more finals guys! Eeek so excited to be done. I am going home for Christmas (which I haven't for the past two years) and I'm so excited to be with my family for the holidays. And of course I'll be taking lots of pictures and such since my mom is the only person on earth who actually enjoys helping me take outfit pictures. Thanks mom, I love you! We are going to go cut down I tree when I get there this saturday and then decorate while listening to Christmas music and drinking hot coca. I love holiday traditions! 

On top of all this Modcloth is having a sale for all their winter gear, 25% off! So if you are in need of a new winter coat this probably a great place to start!

Forest Shadow

{Boots: Dr. Martens -- Dress: Forever 21 -- Shirt: Thrifted -- Hat: Vintage -- Necklace: Vintage}





I know, this it a total blogger faux pas, wearing the same dress for two posts in a row. Honestly though, I love this dress. It fits so nicely on my body, it's fun to twirl in, and it goes with everything! Plus the stud collar is pretty lovely. I decided to pair it with my floral Docs today, man I wish these babies matched more things! They are so pretty and I always get a lot of pretty comments on them. I am finally getting some use of my beautiful vintage pink rosary which is equally exciting. Not sure why, but lately black is my go to color. I don't mind or anything, but most of my closet is so colorful, it's hard when my fashion sense changes so abruptly. That's why there are thrift stores though, right? I mean it's the only cheap way to get all new clothes to fit my all new tastes! 

So lately I've been sucked into a book series called The Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare. I started the first book (a little over 400 pages) last week and now I'm about to finish the third haha. Seriously my Kindle is so excited about all this usage. If you guys haven't read any of these books you definitely need to check it out! The first book in the series is called the City Of Bones, which is going to be a movie this up and coming August. You can check out the trailer online, ugh, it looks so good! Also have you guys seen the trailer for The Host?? SO excited for that one too. Man that was a good book, read that one if you haven't! 

Finals are next week, so if I'm still alive after that I'll be posting lost of pictures!

Surprise!

Like my new hair? :)





Okay fine, so I didn't actually dye my hair. I thought I would try a wig and see how I liked the color. I posted a picture on Facebook wearing it and everyone loved it, which means now I have to dye it this color haha. I'm scared of how much work it can be though-- the bleaching, dying, cold showers, touch ups, ugh! I might be too lazy to have pretty colorful hair. I love how I felt wearing it though, unique  and exciting. I finally understand why my sister has always loved to have crazy colored hair, it's invigorating and freeing. 

So this wig came at a lovely time because I needed a serious distraction from how much school work I have to do. Only two more weeks, I can do this! Right? All I want is for school to end and to go home and be with my family for the holidays. Soon enough though! 

Hope you all had a good week :)
