These Boots Were Made For . . . Trudging Through The Snow

Dress - Sunny Girl (Modcloth) // Cardigan - Cotton On (Thrifted) // Tights - Marc's // Boots - Delia's // Belt - Body Central

It's so sad that it felt really warm today . . . and it was only in the 20s. Also, my hair feels too long, I can't wait to chop it all off again!

Dress - Sugarhill Boutique (Modcloth) // Sweater - JCPenney // Tights - Merona // Shoes - DSW

I usually just go to the post office by my parents' house, but I had to mail a few things today so I went out to find the post office by my house. For those of you who don't know, I'm terrible with directions and I get lost very easily. Long story short, I drove around for awhile before finding the post office.

Shades of Cognac

Dress - Walmart // Sweater - JCPenney // Belt - Thrifted // Tights - Merona // Shoes - Cato's

As I was running out the door, I realized that my shoes and belt were completely different colors. This really bothered me the rest of the day.

Night Ship Jewelry

Well, it finally happened. Two things, actually. First, University of Akron finally closed because of low temperatures! I was very unhappy that I had to go to class yesterday because of the cold. But, on the other hand, was very happy to find a bunch of articles in the news today about how ridiculous it was for Akron to have stayed open yesterday considering the low temperatures.

The second thing is that I finally opened an Etsy shop! I've been making jewelry for years, but kept putting off opening a shop. You can check out the newly opened Night Ship Jewelry here! I mostly sell beaded jewelry, but I'm hoping to put some of my metal stamped stuff up soon.

Here are a few of the pieces for sale right now

Well, what do you think? Let me know and don't forget to check out the shop!

Dress - Walmart // Sweater - JCPenney // Shirt - Joe Fresh // Tights - Marc's // Socks - Merona // Shoes - Breckelles

So guess what, school wasn't cancelled. Even though basically every other school was. That's Akron for you. I didn't plan an outfit because I was so sure they'd cancel at the last minute. It was so cold that I just threw on a bunch layers without really thinking about it. So this is my equivalent to throwing on leggings before running out the door.

Please Don't Make Me Leave My House

Shirt - Thrifted // Sweater - JCPenney // Shoes - Breckelles // Skirt - Lovely Day (Modcloth) // Socks - Walmart // Tights - Marc's

I'm really hoping they cancel school tomorrow. It's supposed to be below zero. On a completely different note, I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who've been commenting! IntenseDebate isn't working anymore and for some reason my computer rarely lets me comment on blogs (like I'll write them out but they never show up...). Anyways, I am reading them, but it's just really difficult to respond.

No School

Dress - Mystic (Ruche) // Tights - Marc's // Shoes - City Classified (Ruche) // Cardigan - JCPenney // Belt - Body Central // Necklace - Handmade (pendant from Walmart)

For some reason Akron has Tuesday instead of Monday off for President's Day. Not that I'm complaining. Heck, I don't have to go to school!

It's Cold Out

Dress - Skies are Blue (Ruche) // Cardigan - Cotton On (Thrifted) // Shoes - City Classified (Ruche) // Tights- George

It's been so long since I've had nice photos! Thanks to Laura, my sister for taking these. I wish I could do this more, but it's just not practical. This has to be one of my favorite dresses and it's on sale right now!

Valentines Day 2015

Dress - Hem & Thread // Tights  and Cardigan - JCPenney // Belt - Body Central // Necklace - Forever21

Mom: Dress - Modcloth // Belt - Body Central // Tights - Kohl's

You know what's nice about holidays (besides food)? Easy post titles. My family's always done a big, rather quirky, family party on Valentines Day. This year, however, we had a more romantic theme. Whatever, as long as I get chocolate. Doesn't my mom look cute though? I found her that dress during a Modcloth sale!

Long Day

Dress - Hello Miss // Sweater - Arizona Jean // Tights - Marc's // Boots - Breckelles // Necklace - Modcloth // Socks - Merona

I'm so tired right now. I ended up being at school for 11 hours yesterday and was so busy all day that I didn't even have time to take photos. It was a really cool day, but I'll write about it later 'cause I need sleep.

Dress - Charlotte Russe // Shoes - Payless // Tights - Marc's // Sweater - JCPenney // Necklace - Modcloth

I rarely wear the same outfit twice, because I like to remix, but I have worn this multiple times. This is the best travel outfit ever--I would know,'cause I wore it on several 20 hour car rides last year!

Dress - Rock Steady (Modcloth) // Cardigan - JCPenney // Necklace - Thrifted // Belt - Old Navy // Tights - Walmart // Shoes - DSW

I've had this necklace for years, but it broke and I just never fixed it. I can't believe I just left it lying around for so long--it's a cool necklace!

Dress - Doe and Rae (Modcloth) // Tights - George // Shoes - City Classified (Ruche) // Necklace - Modcloth // Cardigan - JCPenney

I hated how I wore this dress last week, so I decided to wear it again, haha. Weirdly, I've never had problems with static cling with this dress, but halfway through the day I suddenly felt it clinging to me for dear life. Oh well, I have static cling spray.

Dress - American Eagle (Thrifted) // Sweater - Worthington // Tights - Marc's // Boots - Delia's // Necklace - Handmade

I used to make jewelry all the time but I just recently got all my stuff out again. It's been really fun watching Friends or Criminal Minds in the evening and actually being productive! The necklace in this outfit is one of the ones I made last night. What do you think?

Crumpled Up Kleenex

Dress - Doe and Rae // Tights - Marc's // Boots - Delia's // Cardigan - Thrifted // Necklace - Forever21

No, I'm not sick (surprisingly). The flowers on this cardigan just look like crumpled up kleenex to me. So I got rid of it the moment I got home. I'd been saving it because I like the color, but the weird flowers on the front are just ... weird. Well, they really look like crumpled up kleenex stuck to my shirt. It's gross. Since I can't remove them without seriously damaging the cardigan, it's going to be removed from my closet.

On a slightly unrelated note, there's nothing like an unexpected foot (or three) of snow to remind you of how awful winter is. Every January (and, well, yeah, February too) I plan elaborate vacations to very warm places (for when I actually have money one day, you know?) and check out the cost of living in other (warmer) states. And because of all the dang snow, I'm stuck wearing these same boots! I miss wearing my other shoes :( I missed them so much that I took this picture. Actually, it just happened to be the magical 'golden hour' and, wouldn't you know it, my shoes looked pretty fantastic in the light. Obviously I had to take a picture. It's even my Facebook cover photo now, haha.
