boots: beehive shoes. tights: target. dress: thrifted. necklace: F21.

on the way home from work, i noticed my car wasnt spitting out hot air like it always does. i ran a few has to be warm by now, i thought. 

nope. still no hot air. 

i called my dad and was really upset because i did not know the cause of this act. its below freezing and i don't have a warm car...

once i got off the phone with my dad i noticed a woman walking down the sidewalk with a few grocery bags and a piece of luggage. 

reality check. i am so thankful....i have a car, i have a warm apartment, i have a job....

the heat in my car can wait...time to be thankful because i am blessed with what i have.

nachos anyone?

shoes: Payless. pants: Express. top: Kenzie c/o Plato's closet. blazer, Gap c/o Platos closet.

today i had lunch with a few friends during my lunch break. after reviewing the menu, i decided on just getting the nachos off the appetizer section. 20 minutes later...there is a HUGE mound of food infront of me. 'is this what i ordered?' is running through my mind. yup, a huge 'ol mound of nachos. there was no way i could tackle it alone! my friends couldnt even top it off! i had to take home some of it, and it still looks like there is enough for one more entire meal! goodness! next time i will order of the kids menu!

let the holiday season officially begin...

...because i have completed the fall semester!! 

boots, Aldo. jeans, F21. brown top, Gap c/o Plato's Closet. scarf, Rue 21. 

obsessed with these boots from aldo shoes. they have a hidden wedge inside, so i get a few extra inches taller when i wear them. perfection for a shortie like me.

now that i am finished with school until jan 18, i will be working a lot more. so you should probably be expecting more business-wear photos- but i will try to mix in some casual days (like on the weekends.) promise.

dead day eve

boots, BCBG. socks, Walmart. jeans, F21. belt, F21. button-up, Gap. sweater, OldNavy. 

today is the last day of classes!! what better way to celebrate than dressing up cute for the last day of school? ;) i stuck with the neutral colors in my outfit- with a pop of blue under the sweater. the button up from gap has a ruffle collar instead of a regular collar, which adds a feminine touch to the outfit. its a chilly 19 degrees outside so i will definitely be pulling on my trench coat over this ensemble!

confessions of a shopaholic...

blazer, Gap c/o Platos Closet. raincoat, Burberry c/o Platos Closet.

so here are those sweet finds i mentioned yesterday. i am in love. grand total of these items together? less than 40 bucks. i am quite impressed with myself. however, i should probably re-watch confessions of a shopaholic again. its the story of my life. last thursday i got at $40 parking ticket on campus. but honestly, i couldnt let these two jackets pass me by!! i will still pay the parking ticket...but i will be totally stylin' when i do!

boots, Famous Footwear. jeans, F21. white tee, Hanes. jacket, Juicy. scarf, F21. purse, Plato's Closet.

I needed a comfy outfit to run errands today. I picked out this sweet little outfit, and headed out my apartment, locking the bedroom door before shutting it behind me. I walked into the kitchen and rooted around in my bag for my keys....and couldnt find them. They were locked in my bedroom. It was only noon and the front office didnt open until 1, so I had to patiently wait around for an hour so they could come unlock my room. I didnt have to be anywhere pressing, but I was just set on running my errands and coming back home, and to delay it an entire hour...i was a little frustrated.

I definitely did not bundle up enough. Turns out, it was 37 degrees outside. whoops. however, i did have good luck while shopping at Plato's closet. I found a brown BURBERRY raincoat. its adorable! I also found a navy blue blazer. it was quite a successful trip!
