fluffy scarf and caffeine: a survival guide

Top: Old Navy-$22.00 / Pants: J Crew-$98.00 (Old Navy Version-$32.00!) / Scarf: Old Navy (Similar-$30.00)
Booties: Old Navy (Similar-$28.13) / Bag: New York & Co. (Similar-$29.99)

As much as it looks like it, I promise that it took me more than five minutes to put this outfit together. In fact, I've actually been planning to wear this outfit for... ever, basically. Unfortunately, I never had a scarf like this or the right kind of boots. But guess what? I got them! And I finally got to wear this outfit! It makes me so, so happy.

Anyway, today was a weird day for me. Lots of stress, lots of work, lots of coffee. I eventually go through, however, and I've only got four more days of school left to go before winter break. I've just gotta hang in there. I can't do it! ...I hope.

What outfit have you been meaning to try as soon as you get all the pieces? Ciao!

I was feeling very southern prep today, and, on top of that, very festive and excited to start the holiday season. So what came out of that? This outfit. I couldn't believe I still had this little dress that I bought at the beginning of the summer and was so happy that it still fit! I threw it on and also wanted to celebrate the closeness of the holidays, so I paired it with one of my favorite necklaces. It was freezing, and I honestly don't know how I got through the entire day with no tights or anything! My boots kept my legs mostly warm, I suppose!

Anyway, on another note, just keep an eye out for more posts coming soon. I've been trying to get more organized with things I want to do, but school's been getting in the way, unfortunately. Stay with me as I try to get my posting to be regular, though, and expect a post on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays! See you soon!

Do you try and dress festively near the holiday time?
