Seriously Chartreuse

Shirt: Forever 21, Skirt: Old Navy, Tights: Target, Boots:Nordstroms, Necklace: Forever 21

Today I had to dress up for a mock parent teacher conference. I was told to “dress professionally” and was not sure what to wear, especially considering I moved half of my clothes back home over break. This top is a recent purchase of mine from Forever 21 and I love it. I paired it with a skirt, grey chunky tights, and my favorite boots. I bought the skirt from Old Navy a year ago on the clearance rack for the grand price of $3. It is an interesting piece, chartreuse and corduroy, but for some reason I was really drawn to it and wear it often. Have you ever thought about what a weird name chartreuse is? It is the perfect fit for such an interesting color. I like it. As for the boots, I guess I should just start calling them “the boots” considering they are my go to pair. I swear I own others…I am a boot fiend, but to be honest, these just seem to be the perfect addition to every outfit.

One of the best things about being home? Spending time with my maltese-chihuahua, Bentley. He is such a cuddle bug!

Winter Days

Flannel: Forever 21, Cardigan: Target, Necklace: Gift from Mom:) Skinnys: American Eagle, Boots: Nordstrom BP (HERE)

I seem to be on a cardigan kick lately. I wear one over EVERYTHING! I have also been wearing these boots often. I purchased them from Nordstroms (link under first picture) and adore them. My favorite parts? The zipper in the back and the height…they go just below my knee. I’m definitely lusting after the dark brown pair (the website says they are grey but I’m definitely seeing brown…?).

Winter has officially announced its arrival with a winter advisory warning. Yay. Luckily, my college town has not been hit full force yet, but my hometown seems to be getting the brunt of it. Fingers crossed that it clears up so I can drive home tomorrow!!

PS sorry for the fabulous mirror shots. My mirror is coated in a fine layer of hairspray grime and I can’t find any windex:/ oops!

Early Mornings

Getting up and getting ready for school has been so hard lately! I’m not sure if the freezing weather is to blame, or if it’s my lack of motivation in my last few weeks of my last semester of college classes EVER. Any how, waking up at 6:30 am is a difficult task when I have hours of class ahead of me and it’s 20 degrees outside with a bone chilling wind that could possibly sweep me off my feet. I have definitely been steering towards outfits that allow me to wear as many layers as possible. I’ve also been mixing in a lot of my college gear…nostalgia has kicked in. Today, I fought the urge to throw on my favorite hoodie, yoga pants and uggs (college student must haves) and wore a cute chiffon-y tunic, leggings, boots and a cardi. A cardigan, leggings and a long tunic are often my go to look and I love the color combo of this outfit! Have I mentioned that I also love the look of lace up combat boots? They add the perfect touch to a girly outfit, roughing it up justttt a bit. These are my absolute favorite pair that I got from Delia’s over a year ago. Delia’s still carries them, but they are on clearance (bonus!) and in black. I might just have to order them.

I am counting down the days until I head home for Thanksgiving. I cannot wait for home cooked meals, TV (I have no cable in college land:[ ) and my family!
