WHAT. It’s been that many days?!
a whole week. whoa.
We have a new president. *Disclaimer* I feel like social media and the press have given us enough coverage to realize we need love in the country, so lets focus on that. That’s as political as this post will get.
Hey, its almost Thanksgiving, there’s something to think about!
Let’s get tea and prepare to sit for a while. I sat down to type this and you will thus sit and read and enjoy.
I would say a separate thing I was grateful for each day I wasn’t here, but I would rather say a bunch that I felt thankful for during the past week. I was thankful for the change in the weather, my friends (I was going to say “FrAnDz”…just read it out loud like that), the school I go to, and Christmas music. No, they are not in any particular order.
The weather has made me drowsier at night, which I think is because of daylight savings, and the change of time has made it darken earlier, and now I want to cuddle in blankets earlier. This is fabulous as I have trouble sleeping. So there’s one thing to be happy about. Thanks mother nature!
Next, I want to point out that colder weather is my favorite for style. I don’t like the heat, and I feel like it kind of clashes with my personal style as my favorite thing to do is layer. For example, yesterday and today’s outfits are here for your perusal/inspiration:
I would like to also apologize for bad iPhone quality. I need to find a better camera.
At left, we have yesterday’s look. At right…I am still wearing that actually.
Since I have quit buying fast fashion, none of what I am wearing is available anymore.
BUT. New item alert. That denim jacket? Its custom. Levis. Denim. Oh snap. I have never had such a well made item like that, besides my Clarks (aka my children aka best shoes ever). I will wear the living crap out of that outerwear.
As you guys know, this started out a style blog. So I will talk about that for a second. I originally thought my style was super intense and patterned and whatnot. Colors, and prints, and psychedelic themes galore. But the passing of time has led to me realizing that I really like well made good quality basics, and then random prints scattered about my wardrobe. I’ve also come to the conclusion that I really like dark colors and basic neutrals. Nothing major or remarkable about it- just a self observation, which is always interesting to make as time goes on.
And now, the Christmas music!!! A few unsolicited recommendations that you’ll thank me for later:
- Last Christmas- Wham!
- A Charlie Brown Christmas / Thanksgiving soundtracks
- Cold December Night- Michael Bublé
- Mele Kalikimaka – Andrews Sisters and Bing Crosby
- This Christmas – Christina Aguilera
- Let It Snow – Aly and Aj (homage to my childhood)
- Anything on the Christmas albums by She and Him
- Any Christmas song by Frank Sinatra
You’re welcome!! Finals are coming and I need good vibes, and you need good vibes, so how better than to use Christmas music to share and spread the love!!
See you guys soon!!
