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!

sunday brunch

vintage black booties, F21 beret & belt, Target dress & tights, BB Dakota coat, Something Urban wing necklace, thrifted Nine West clutch

Nothing I’m wearing is over $25. I love saying that, because being thrifty is a good skill to establish. 
I found these vintage booties which I like to call my “witchy boots”, for only $10. This  Nine West  clutch was only $8.50.  And this BB Dakota coat is actually a cocoa color, despite the misleading pictures and its so lightweight and comfortable I bought it for $20!
I wore this olive colored lace dress, because I ran out of clean jeans. Its so comfortable and makes me feel like a fairy. But it’s good for a creature of comfort like me to pull out my dresses, because it’s nice to feel girly every once in a while. 
I wore this outfit to brunch today.  Its been the second day in a row where I’m up early enough to order breakfast! Bananas foster french toast yesterday, and chocolate chip pancakes today–complete bliss. nom nom nom.

cozy camel, cuddly cat

vintage camel blazer, Monet flower ring, F21 top, Target necklace

One thing that I love about Fayetteville is that we have quirky little stores that are scattered all throughout town. From little boutiques to funky little thrift stores– there is something for everyone, you just have to go out and find it! I found this blazer while on my treasure hunt at Cheap Thrills for only $15. I instantly fell in love with it! I’m not a big fan of velvet, but since it was only on the collar it wasn’t a deal breaker. And of course, I couldn’t say no to this camel color! The black velvet feels so cozy wrapped around my neck and it almost feels like Zeusy’s fur ( the chunky black cat pictured above), which is great because he is the softest little snuggler ever!

On another note, I’m happy to announce that one of the student organizations that I’m involved in (Volunteer Action Center) along with the help of my university, will be opening one of the 1st campus food pantries in the SEC (Southeastern Conference).  I’m the PR/Marketing director for VAC, which means I get to work with wonderful people, express my creativity, and bring my ideas to life. I do it all for free, simply because volunteering  is such an important thing that I hold dear to my heart and it’s a big part of who I am.

It’s so exciting to see something that we’ve all worked so hard on finally transition from a dream to reality.
