Against the Wind

Things have slowed down a lot now that the holiday is over and done with. I wore this to eat lunch with my Dad and hang out around the house. And as the title suggests, the wind today was absolutely awful! That being said, I had one hell of a time trying to snap some decent shots. I'm trying to work up motivation to begin cleaning/organizing before the new year begins but so far, to no avail.

I scored these pants on sale and couldn't be happier with them. I know the skinny cargo is what's on trend right now but let's be honest, I'm a big girl and have a hard enough time 'pulling off' skinny jeans, much less another type of pant in an unforgiving cut. So for now I'll stick to my wide(r) leg cargos, thank you very much!

And finally, a quick word about this plaid shirt. I wear this sucker all the freakin' time but have been holding off of featuring it on here. If I had to choose one shirt to wear every day for the rest of my life, it'd be this guy right here. Soft, cheap, the perfect fit, great colors and PLAID, need I say more?

Happy Christmas, War Is Over (If You Want It)

Today was Christmas as we all I hope everyone had a fantastic day filled with good food (too much!) laughter and loads of relaxation. I'm planning to have an outfit post tomorrow, I've mostly been slumming around the house in sweats, just what the holidays are for! Just wanted to show you all a couple of photos of our decorations, ornaments, all that good stuff. See if you can spot my brother in the 4th photo down, isn't he too cute with his bowl cut (from ages ago) Haha! I'm off to hang out with my family and watch Inception, enjoy the rest of the weekend lovlelies.

Ain't no sunshine when she's gone...

So thanks to my loving, fantastic boyfriend I now have a working camera (complete with memory card), making it possible for me to start taking photos again. Thanks Neil for letting me steal your stuff!

I wore this today to go to the chiropractor, eat lunch with my Dad and finish up some Christmas shopping. The weather was predicted as being 'mostly sunny with some clouds' but as you can see, it was more like all clouds without any chance of sun...ah the joys of winter! Hope each and everyone of you is doing well, enjoying the cooler weather and preparation for the holidays. I can't believe Christmas is right around the corner. Have a lovely week you guys.

Why so blue, panda bear?

So I've got bad news...and more bad news. Let's hear it all at once, shall we? Okay, cool.
For starters my laptop was stolen WHILE I was on campus and IN CLASS! Ridiculous, right?? I know. And then today while attempting to take outfit photos (for the first time in ages) I realized I left my memory card in my laptop. Meaning of course that I am completely and totally screwed.

All things considered, I think it's safe to say that this blog is going to suffer from lack of attention for awhile. I hope to hear some news from security on my laptop soon. So please you guys, send some kind thoughts, good luck, or prayers my way. I need 'em real bad.

Hope y'all are doing better than I am. I wanted to post something of inspiration on here, the above are things/looks I'm lusting over lately.

How I Won the War

You guys I'm done with school for the semester!! Well technically I still have finals, but after turning in all the papers and projects the rest will be a breeze.  Wednesday is my last day to have a final and then I can go on holiday!

Neil took these pictures of me when we were driving back from my house at Thanksgiving.  I found this collar on an old jacket that I'd completely forgotten about & found buried in the back of my closet (in my old room at home).  Thank God I never get rid of anything, right? And this jacket is one of my favorite things that I own. I found it in a flea market back when I was in high school and I actually has the man's name on it and everything. Cool, huh?
