It was raining at some point...

Vintage Etienne Aigner messenger, thrifted belt & trench coat, F21 top, jewelry, & hat, Target skirt, Marc Jacobs wellies

If you can't tell, I'm exhausted. It was storming through the night and into the morning, which made it harder to go to sleep and even more difficult to wake up. I distracted myself from doing homework with some of my favorite shows.

These Marc Jacobs boots were a gift from my lovely roommate. She surprised me on my birthday last year and I about died! She was the sweetest roommate for sure! I call them my Ronald McDonald boots because of the crazy pop of color,  but they definitely brighten any gloomy day.

Since I was talking about shows I'd love to share some of my favorites, plus it keeps me from doing work :)

True Blood
These are real vampires and werewolves, way better than Twilight. Don't let your kiddies watch it though, because it gets a little risqué. I love Eric Northman, and "Soo-kehh".
Project Runway
What fashionista/o doesn't love this show? Mondo was my favorite from last season.
A seial killer killing serial killers? Awesome. And because we all have a "dark passenger" riding along with us. 
Gossip Girl 
This show gets so ridiculous and girly at times but I can't turn away. All the silly drama puts things into perspective sometimes, because life isn't so serious! Blair and Chuck are my favorite, Serena can go away if she wants.
Boardwalk Empire
Prohibition. Al Capone. Guns. Flappers. And beautiful clothing. Need I say more?
The Walking Dead 
I just started watching this, and can't get enough! I enjoy zombies except when they run, because those are the worst.
Mad Men
Christina Hendricks. Red hot bombshell. Sometimes the writing can get a little too predictable but the clothes in the show are gorgeous nonetheless. 
Rachel Zoe Project
I love RZ. I die!
Criminal Minds
I had to stop watching this because it made me way too paranoid. I often found my self analyzing people's behaviors and thinking everyone was a serial killer, I got a little carried away ;)

What are your favorites? Any recommendations?

Stay wonderful!

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!

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!

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.

gathering leaves

Gap cardigan, F21 boots, hat, and lace top

Usually by November, its freezing. Right now the temperature is obviously dealing with a little personality disorder. One day its chilly and breezy-- perfect cardigan weather and then the next day is the absolute opposite. It's hard to find a middle ground. Most girls on campus are wearing the "sorority look", you know--the Nike shorts, oversized Northface jacket, and UGGS. Then there are people like me, who are trying to hold on to every ounce of this cold weather for an excuse to pull out their winter wardrobe.

This cardigan I'm wearing was on sale at Gap for $10. I got a bigger size just because I like the feeling of being wrapped around by warm fuzziness.

Other than that, it's beautiful here and there is inspiration all around me and my combination of creativity/adhd is ready to explode!
