This weekend I made the 3.5 hour trek to visit my boyfriend at college. As I recently graduated from the same college, it was nice being back to my old stomping grounds. I had a great time with the boy, but it was definitely hard to leave Sunday afternoon. Long distance relationships are hard and while Skype, phone calls and texts help to make things easier, they are definitely no comparison to being face to face! 

If any of you follow me on Instagram (@twentiesgirlstyle) you might have seen a little sneak peak of this outfit as this is one of the outfits I wore on my weekend getaway. I’m pretty much obsessed with the color combination of purple, black and leopard. I also love the addition of the combat boots I recently re-discovered in a box under my bed. Not sure how these managed to get lost, but I am so glad to have found them…to be honest, they are pretty much all I have been wearing since the re-discovery! 

Also, I ran out of room on Blogger/Picasa for my pictures! I used Photobucket to upload, but noticed they were deleted this morning and had to re-upload. I’m sure many of you have run into this problem, so what are your solutions? Do you use Photobucket or some other uploading site or pay the extra to get a bigger Picasa storage? Help! 

On another note, I am so excited to announce the winner of the $25 Rire Boutique gift certificate, Ali from The Drawing Mannequin! Congrats Ali, I can’t wait to see what you spend your gift certificate on!!

    Those pants are a wonderful colour, and those boots are amazing!! It's great you rediscovered them, I bet they look great with everything. And that sweater and scarf combo is perfect!

    I totally know how you feel – I'm in a long distance relationship myself. My boyfriend from high school and I got to colleges 1,000 miles apart and it's a true challenge. Keep staying strong! On a lighter note…I love this outfit! I recently discovered infinity scarves and I have been obsessed ever since ๐Ÿ™‚ and those purple pants are brilliant, they fit you like a glove!

    Oooh, love the deep purple skinnies and that awesome cheetah print scarf!
    Also, glad you got to see your bf. Long distance really is painfully hard at time :/ I'm dreading next fall already…mine is planning on going to a private school in a different state! -_-

    I know what your talking about ๐Ÿ™ i had a long distance relationship as well, but it was more than about 3,5 h. while i was living in germany, he was still living in New York and it was so hard … i guess that was the reason why it didnt work and we broke up, at least it was one of the reasons why we broke up. but anyway, i am happy we did cause I figured that he just wasnt the right guy for me, i guess he is not made to be in a relationshiop. he needs to be free and have a lot of girls at the same time but i couldnt handle that. so i am happy now because i found the most perfect boyfriend ever and i am happier than ever ๐Ÿ™‚ he is awesome!

    i love your outfit. i love the sweater, it looks really good on you and the color of your pants fits it just perfectly. and of course your scarf is awesome. i am a huge fan of these animal prints ๐Ÿ™‚ i love your look.

    that's a super cute color combo, i must agree. and don't you feel nostalgic walking around campus? whenever i do with my old one, i instantly miss sweat pants and napping in our commons couches haha

    I went to see my brother play soccer at college this past weekend it was definitely weird to be back on a campus. Made me very nostalgic!

  17. October 25, 2012 / 7:01 am

    Ohh love this outfit, so perfect for the autumn! Long distance relationships are hard but oh so worth it… I'm from Finland and my fiancรฉ is Dutch, so we were in a long distance phase for almost two years. Now I live in the Netherlands too but still 2 hours away with the train… funny to think that with the plane it's almost the same hahah ๐Ÿ˜€ At least train tickets are cheaper so we get to spend the weekends together ๐Ÿ™‚

    Following you now btw ๐Ÿ™‚

    such a cute & well out together outfit! i use flickr as i feel the photo quality is much better than google picasa. the latter tends to have some image quality loss.
