Isn’t Bear the cutest?! I love his fuzzy little face so much! Every time I get the chance to snuggle him, I take it. This outfit is totally different than something I would usually wear. I found this shirt hanging out in the back of my closet and found a way to make it work. Sometimes, that’s the best thing to do! I don’t have enough money to go out every weekend to buy new outfits, unfortunately! So looking through my closet to mix up my wardrobe is really nice! Plus, anytime I get to wear my faux fur, I’m a real happy camper. 😉



Sweaters and Sequins

I said it. I said this year would be a year of good posts! Currently obsessing over this outfit. Perfectly casual and cute. I might not wear this to a big meal, but hey. I love the juxtaposition of the sweater paired with the sparkle skirt! I think it adds the right amount of texture. Another thing I love about this, For the shoes, you could either do a bootie like I did, or dress it up even more with a pair of nude patent pumps, which would also be awesome!

I am seriously loooooving these necklaces. I got them for Christmas and like I said, I’m obsessed. They are affordable and so freakin’ cute. I love the simple details because its totally different than all my other jewelry!

I hope that everyone has a great weekend!

Where? Who? I went to the zoo!

Typical…sorry for the long absence. Anyway, two weeks ago, I took a trip to see the best person ever, Shanna. I flew out to Columbus on Friday morning, ready for some Ohio adventures. When I got in, Shanna picked me up from the airport and we headed to a delicious little Mexican restaurant where we had the YUMMIEST vegan burritos and margaritas. 😛 they were so good I can’t stop thinking about them! On Saturday, we knew it was pretty much our last day together so we headed to the Zoo first thing in the morning and let me tell you, the Columbus zoo is AWESOME! Luckily, the weather warmed up for us that day and we were blessed with really warm weather and sunshine! I tried to take as many pictures as possible, so here are the best ones I got!

Scarves, leaves and foxes, OH MY!

With the weather drastically changing, the first thing that I want to put on in the morning is a scarf! To me, scarves are a really essential part of a fall wardrobe. From color, to style, to little bit of flare. These are some of the scarves that I am really loving and craving. There is nothing better than a cozy infinity scarf to throw on while you’re running out the door (late) to class. I also LOVE this fox scarf. If you haven’t seen the “What’s the fox say?” video on youtube, you should check it out! It really cracks me up every time.
By adding a simple accessory to an outfit can give it entirely different dynamic and will be sure to add an extra bit of warmth!
Happy fall!
