Goodbye 2013

Happy New Year (well, almost)!! I can't believe this year is already coming to a close! 2013 was such a great year for me. I graduated from the best university in the world, went on a cross-country road trip (something that has always been on my bucket list) and got to travel to the city I had only dreamed of exploring one day, Boston! Time flew by this year, but I can't wait to see what awaits me in 2014!

I put together this compilation of a few of my favorite outfit shots taken throughout the year, what do you think? I took a long break from blogging over the summer, so the majority of these are from the later half of the year. But! I'm going to try and be more consistent with my posting for 2014. Maybe that can be my new years resolution?

Ah who am I kidding, no one ever keeps their new years resolution, and I have the abandoned gym membership to prove it. ;)

All is Merry and Bright

{ f21 top, skirt, & boots; Marshall's tights; mom's cardigan; bow c/o Shop Pretty Lovely }

So this is what I wore for Christmas! I wanted something that screamed "HOLLY JOLLY", and I think I nailed it with gold and plaid. I love this color combo for the holidays! I was reluctant to take outfit pics indoors, but I really wanted some photos with my parents' Christmas tree. And also, it was way too hot/sunny to be outside, but that's Texas for ya. "White Christmas"? What's that? :P

So This is Christmas

{ Agaci sweater; Target vest & bag; F21 jeans; Payless boots; Icing necklace }

So this morning I woke up with my left eye burning/swollen (it's pretty much blind now) along with a huge pimple on each cheek, but on the bright side, IT'S CHRISTMAS EVE!! Therefore, nothing will bring me down today! I love the day before Christmas because it's the day when my extended family comes over to hang out and open gifts! I'm excited to eat, drink, and (you guessed it) be merry!

Hope everyone is enjoying the holidays! Tomorrow while you're opening gifts, I'll be on a plane along with the other crazy people who decided to fly on Christmas morning, haha! I can't wait to be in Boston again!! Merry Christmas! :o)

Last Day of Autumn

{ f21 plaid shirt, vest, hat & coat; Marshall's tights; gifted gloves; GoJane boots }

Sad to say, but my favorite season has finally come to an end this year. No more making crunchy noises with the leaves, no more relevant use for pumpkins... sigh. I wouldn't mind winter as much if we got some snow here in Austin, but that pretty much never happens so all we're left with are the lame parts of the season (like freezing inside your own apartment because you're too cheap to turn on the heat).

Thankfully, I will get to experience lots of snow for the next couple of weeks during my visit in Massachusetts! No matter how cold it gets, I told myself I have to build a snowman and (if I'm brave enough) get in a snowball fight! They're on my "things most normal people have done that you should probably do before you die" list. It's a work in progress.

Boston Common

{ Target sweatshirt, leg warmers & scarf; f21 cardigan & pants; GoJane boots; thrifted Fossil bag }

During my stay in Massachusetts, Matthew and I got to go on a day trip to Boston! I just couldn't wait to see how fall had transformed the Boston Common (which is one of my favorite places ever). Instead of the gorgeous flowers I saw when I came to visit in the summer, fallen leaves of red and yellow covered the place. We walked around the Common while staying warm with our chai lattes and just enjoyed the sights & sounds. It was pure bliss.

p.s. This may be unrelated, but on the right side of the second photo above, you can see a hawk that just demolished a pigeon and some random drunk guy passed out in the back on the grass. Boston is so magical.

Sweater (Dress) Weather

{ f21 sweater dress & hat; Target scarf; Marshall's tights; GoJane boots }

Whoever invented sweater dresses is seriously my hero. "What? You wanna be able to look cute and wear a dress in cold weather without freezing to death? Sure thing." Bam. Suddenly winter got a little bit more enjoyable. So thank you, mystery fashion genius.

I'm super excited for Christmas this year because I'm heading back to Massachusetts! I fly out Christmas morning and am staying until a few days after New Years Eve. I can't wait! I'm actually going to be in real snow for the first time (I'm not counting that ONE time we got a smidgen of snow flurries in Austin)! I don't think I own a single article of clothing to prepare me for snow, and I'm pretty sure my sweater dress won't be able to help me out either... Should be an interesting two weeks!

Birthday Bundled

{ ASOS dress; f21 shirt & cardigan; DSW boots; Marshall's tights; Target belt & leg warmers }

This is what I wore when I turned 23 last month! Every year my birthday falls on a cold day, so I basically have to decide if I want to either wear a cute dress and freeze or pile on layers of clothes until I'm unrecognizable (which is no fun on your birthday). Girl problems, amiright?

This year I decided to brave the cold and wear one of my favorite dresses ever! It has no sleeves, so I put on a plaid shirt before covering up with my cozy chunky cardigan (which I practically lived in during my stay in Massachusetts, and I'm not exaggerating). I'm surprised I was still able to stay warm! The leg warmers helped a lot. Maybe the 80's taught us something after all...

Fox and the Hound

{ Target sweater dress; f21 plaid shirt; Marshall's tights; GoJane boots } 

Say hello to Copper, my boyfriend's dog! How cute is he? I really wanted him to be in this post with me, but getting him to sit still proved to be pretty difficult since he has so much energy! He was basically pulling me around, haha! So please appreciate the first photo because it's basically a miracle that we got one that didn't come out blurry ;)

On my first day visiting Massachusetts, we took Copper for a walk and let him out in the backyard to play. I was mesmerized by all the fallen leaves around us, they were so pretty! We don't get leaves like that here in Texas. I must have took over 50 photos of just the leaves alone! I couldn't help myself. I've got four more outfit posts from Massachusetts coming up, and I can't wait to share them with y'all! Copper won't be in them though. Fashion blogging wasn't really his thing.

p.s. Special thanks to my boyfriend's mom for naming this post. I wish I was as clever as she is! xo
