a relaxing break

Thrifted dress, coat, & belt, F21 tights, jewelry, hat, scarf, Xappeal boots

Yesterday was lovely just being able to spend time with my bf and my family, a simple quiet Thanksgiving is worth more than gold. I made pumpkin cheesecake for the first time, played spoons & BS with the family, and avoided doing any work!
I would just like to thank each and everyone of my followers, and I really mean that. You guys are awesome, and each one of you is beautiful and inspiring to me. I would specifically like to thank the sweet, Bee for featuring me in her “Bloglight” post,  and Chelsea & Kennyy for choosing me for their most stylish award :) . You guys are great.

Zeus wrapped up like a burrito, trying to be a vampire.

On my mind:
If anyone is thinking about getting a pet for the holidays or know someone who is, please check out your local animal shelters first. There are so many lovely dogs and cats who are overlooked. Our lovely kitten Zeus was rescued, and unfortunately black cats are usually the first to be euthanized because of their negative stereotypes but he is just a bundle of love that has brought so much joy into my life. 
Have a wonderful weekend!

"Its a nice day to start again…"

 Vintage sweater, Target beanie, F21 ring, Gap jeans

I’ve had my eye on this sweater for years, and its a sweater my dad wore “back in the day”.  I’m not even sure I should consider 80s vintage, but after seeing neutral chunky knits everywhere, I decided it was time to sneak it out of my dad’s closet and show this baby the new decade!
I love the colors in this, it made my Monday a little brighter–despite the few stares I recieved on campus. I can’t believe my dad actually wore this, but then again he was also a fan of  Culture Club & Guns N’ Roses, while mom loved Madonna & Cyndi Lauper. Instead of listening to Disney songs that most people my age adored, I was jamming to 80s hair bands and I’m so thankful for that. 
So word of advice to all you clothing lovers out there: Save those funky pieces to pass down to your kids! 
Just wanted to share some of my all time favorite tunes of the 80s: 
1. “Sweet Child O’ Mine”- Guns N’ Roses 
2. “Pour Some Sugar on Me”- Def Leppard
3. “Fight For Your Right”-Beastie Boys
4. “Take On Me”- A-Ha
5. “Tainted Love”- Soft Cell
6. “Love Shack”- B-52s
7. “Whip It”-Devo
8. “Dancing with Myself”-Billy Idol/Generation X
9. “Karma Chameleon”-Culture Club
10. “White Wedding”-Billy Idol

....Oh I could go on but I’m getting carried away!



bashful

F21 waffle patterned tights & cardigan, thrifted dress, Dana Buchman wedges

Thank you for all your kind comments, this blog thing is still new to me and can get a little intimidating sometimes but its nice to have readers–and thank you for following :]
I decided to pull out this dress from the back of my closet, I haven’t worn it very often but decided to wear this out to dinner.  Sometimes I feel like a total cheeseball when I wear dresses, especially when most dresses aren’t long enough and usually fit like shirts for me. But this dress has pockets, which is a definite plus for me! I like to have a place to put my hands if I feel awkward.
Hope you all enjoy the rest or your weekend, or if you are off for the holidays enjoy your time with your friends and family! 

blowing in the wind

F21 floppy hat, oxfords knit top, Merona cotton blazer, Thrifted Gianni Bini satchel, Converse navy legging pants

I love comfy outfits like this. Today was a very windy day, which made an adventure for wearing this floppy hat…I had to chase it down a few times. This is probably one of my favorite bags ever, originally I remember seeing it at Dillards for $150.00 and guess what—I found it for $16.50. Total steal. I love the color and the exposed zippers that trim the handles. 
If you haven’t noticed, I have an obsession for hats, pops of color, eclectic jewelry (usually containing animals), and soft fabrics. I’m a very tactile person, so when I shop, the feel of the fabric is usually one of my decision points. 
Old news but, Lanvin for H&M. I’m so sad we don’t have an H&M nearby. But for now, I guess I’ll have to be satisfied drooling over this video.

dark and dreary

f21 cardigan & top, thrifted booties, target beanie

School is definitely getting the best of me. I just have to keep reminding myself its almost time for the break. Very sad weather today, which didn’t help having to wake up for a 7:15 meeting followed by non-stop classes, appointments, and everything else in between. Not to mention, 3 hours of sleep. The beanie I’m wearing was only $2.99 at Target(in the young mens section), so of course I had to get them in all the necessary colors. I have similar ones from F21 that I paid twice the price, yes I enjoy good deals! 
Slouchy beenies like this are a definite comfort thing for me, not only does it keep me warm but makes me feel safe. This cardigan is probably one of my favorites, its from F21 but its unique and I got it a while back as a gift. 
I’m gonna go watch Scott Pilgrim and The Last Airbender, and channel my inner nerd–while eating carrot cake. yumm
Stay lovely!
