i'd buy a big house where we both could live

This is Ellie Goulding's video for her cover of "Your Song" and in the midst of feeling bummed with my entire wardrobe, it's reignited my enthusiasm with autumn. The weather today is not the gorgeous fall weather we were experiencing last week which means there's no good place for outfit pictures, but tomorrow is supposed to be the end of our windy and rainy conditions. Enjoy the video!

six days at the bottom of the ocean

Today has not been a great day. It's cold and rainy outside, my outfit refused to photograph well, and I'm still enduring a headache I've had for nearly a week now. Can it just be Harry Potter premiere time and Thanksgiving? To cheer myself up, I'm blasting the heat and listening to some Explosions in the Sky, as well as catching up on some TV. How great is the new episode of Misfits?

I decided, in lieu of an outfit, I'd show you guys some things I'm digging for Christmas. I've been told that my family doesn't do Christmas like other families. We're not really secretive our gifts at all and last year I even ordered my own present (a pair of Toms) from my parents because they're computer inept. But when it comes to my extended family, my aunt likes to get an idea from us of what we'd like, but surprise us with our final present. I'm sending her this to show her what type of clothes I'm into at the moment.

Sweet as Jam Dress at Modcloth
Felted Wool Mini at J. Crew
Confetti Heart Dress at Forever 21
Crinkled Plaid Scarf at Forever 21

 As you can see, I'm loving prints and more neutral colors right now. Putting this together made me want to go shopping, but I currently have eight dollars in my bank account and, obviously more importantly than money to shop, I need to buy some food and my Harry Potter tickets, but I hate asking my parents for money. So goes the life of a poor college student.

there's a fork in the road

The weather has taken a chilly turn (it was 29 degrees with wind chill at the bus stop last night and Alex and I were freezing!) here in Asheville and thought the temperature is supposed to go back up, I'm excited for the endless possibilities of colored tights. (For the record, I deem anything not black colored!) These are four looks I'm going to be drawing a lot of inspiration from in the next few months as I deal with cold temperatures. 

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm looking for a few more pairs to add to my collection. My mom went to Kohl's this weekend to pick up some tights for me (thanks, Mom!) and she grabbed a pair of purple tights in addition to some new black ones. I can't wait to combine them with this gorgeous floral dress I'll be wearing tomorrow (with black tights, unfortunately! And I lost my pair without holes, which leaves me down to the ripped pair you saw in my last post.)
