Hello! Here are a few quick pictures of a day spent in the city about a week ago. I really enjoy easy, calm days like this because they are so far away from where I am now. My spring break, where I was suppose to be productive, ended up with me really sick. So, these pictures are up a little later than I wanted them to be, but I've got a lot of homework and medicine to get to. I'll resurface soon enough. I hope you enjoy your week!

Hello! I had so much fun doing this last season so I thought I'd do it again. So here's a round up of some of my favorite things from New York Fashion Week.
Vampy - This is an odd look to be attracted to after I've repeatedly mentioned wanting to explore more bright and flirty outfits, but what can I say when it comes to dark clothing I can't stay away. Plus after reading Dracula can you really blame me? (from left to right - Tadashi Soji, Zimmermann, Alice + Olivia)
Sweaters - If I'm being completely honest most of what I see on the runway is just vague inspiration because I know I'm going to be wearing sweaters practically everyday for 3 months. I'll spice up my winter uniform this year by playing with colors, graphics, and asymmetry. (L to R - Alexander Wang, Lacoste, Opening Ceremony, Thakoon)
Thigh high boots - I've always wanted thigh high boots but never really had a reason to get them. I feel like this will most likely be my impractical splurge of the season. (L to R - Cynthia Rowley, Herver Ledger, Alexander Wang)
Fur Coat - Every year towards the end of winter I finally figure out what kind of coat I want for winter time. This year it's a fur coat. They always look so cozy. (L to R - Band of Outsiders, Milly)
Last time I only picked one show that was going to be an overall inspiration, but I had a little trouble picking one this season. So I decided just to choose all of them.
I already new that I was going to be attracted to the DKNY show because the massive amount of black clothing. I especially love the coats and the relaxed feel of all the outfits. I'm curious to see whether I can work some leather and orange color into my wardrobe. Plus it was interesting and different for half the cast to be well known new yorkers as well as people pulled of the streets.
This show was one of the only ones that appealed to my girly side. The dresses and tight and cuteness of it all was great but not too feminine for my taste.
There is always going to be a little part of me that wants to dress completely from the preppy handbook. That's just how I grew up. Opening Ceremony lets me easily fall back into button ups under sweaters, stripes, and the occasional unexpected graphics.
I can't really pin point why I practically liked this show. The outfits just seemed to have that effortless cool factor that I always want to achieve, but never think about enough to actual work towards it. I guess I'll just keep it in the back of my mind.

Hello! These past two days have just been a slew of snow days for me, so instead of dressing up and going out I've been cuddled up in my dorm reading Dracula. It takes me a long time to read classics, but I'm glad I persevered through this one. It's not exactly something I would re read many times, but it was interesting and fun to spot all of the components and details that translate into recent books and films. Plus the reward of the fast paced adventure towards catching Dracula is worth the slow build of the beginning and middle. Even good enough to make me want to wear red lipstick the next day.

Hello! After a few weeks I've got my routine at school back and I'm blogging again. I was really excited to not only wear some new clothes, but roam around the city again. My friends and I went to the New York City Police Museum. Though it was sad to see pictures of 9/11 and here stories from one of the employees, the scenery and the relaxed feel of the day kept us content. Though I have to admit it got a bit cold at times.
P.S. Though my sweater fulfilled its purpose of keeping me warm and being an ode to my long eyelashes and general obsession with eye makeup, it shed like crazy! I think I'll be avoiding fuzzy sweaters for the foreseeable future.

Hello! Since I've been back home the weather has been pretty awful, and didn't do much to inspire any outfit posts lately. Now things have lightened up a bit, but it's still a rather gloomy time because I'll be headed back to school soon and leaving some of my friends once more. It's bittersweet so I'll just leave it to my jewelry to brighten things up.

Hello and Happy New Year! I thought the best way to start off the new year on my blog would be looking forward. This past year has been in equal parts good and bad. Though reviewing the past year can be useful, going through items and events I'm excited to use and attend is a lot more fun.
I hope you're excited for the new year

|The spring semester is going to go super fast since I have a ton of breaks. I'll be heading back and forth a lot from home to school and this cute makeup bag from Sephora will be traveling with me.|
|One of my Christmas gifts was Burberry Brit Sheer. I love it because it's fruity but not overpowering, and I can't wait to wear it come Spring time.|
|I picked up a bunch of fun socks recently; I see more skirts and cropped pants in my future.|
|And the Holy Grails are tickets to see Arctic Monkeys and a school trip to Rome. The concert is in February and my ten days in Rome isn't until May but knowing these two event are actually going to happen makes 2014 the best already.|
