secret garden

so i'm thinking there should be a show called "it's always snowing in pittsburgh" instead of "it's always sunny in philadelphia" because yes, it's november. and yes, i woke up to an inch of snow on the ground yesterday. don't even get me started. it is autumn and it's not supposed to snow in autumn but pittsburgh does not care about these so called "seasons" and prefers to get really, really unnecessarily cold before thanksgiving is even here. i'm not exaggerating when i say that i had to go to burlington coat factory and by a big puffer jacket yesterday because i was freezing. dramatic? maybe. okay, who am i kidding, dramatic is my middle name. 


these photos were taken before said snowstorm; when life was great and i could just wear a simple chunky cardigan to stay warm. i've been living in this comfy little number lately. it's so warm and cozy and you can't see it in these photos, but it has elbow pads. and yes, those elbow pads make me feel awesome.


i wasn't kidding a few posts back when i said i wear scarves 6 out of 7 days of the week. they are just perfect for spicing up a simple look. this one is from urban, and safe to say i get a lot of use out of it. it's big and square and perfect. anyone have any tips of places that sell huge, awesome scarves? help a girl out!


brown and black has been my favorite color combination this fall. i'm not really sure why, but i just like the way the colors look together. i don't really believe in any of the "fashion" rules that tell you what colors not to wear together or what colors to avoid in certain seasons. if i like the way it looks when i get dressed in the morning, i will wear it. simple as that. except for red and green. you will always look like a christmas elf. sorry people.


i can't believe it's already wednesday and almost halfway through november. i just can't wrap my brain around how fast the weeks are flying by lately. most of my time is spent applying for jobs and going to class and soaking up the last few weeks of school before graduation. i have 29 days left (but who's counting...) and then i'm done! off to the real world. it's crazytown. i'm just trying to stay as productive as i can while simultaneously having fun at the same time. let me tell you, it's not an easy task. 


alright well enough of my rambling. happy hump day, folks! thanks for stopping by.

xxoo,

  5. Cute look! Love the black & brown color combo too. And don't get me started about the snow and the cold, ugh. It was beautiful and mild on Monday and we had snow yesterday, it's highly puzzling. Hopefully Pittsburg get its shit together ;)
