Wish









Sweater: Lauren Conrad
Skirt: Forever 21
Tights: George
Boots: Steve Madden
Purse: Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn
Necklace: Swarovski (My own design)

         Happy almost Christmas to everybody!  I have been doing a bunch of Christmas shopping this week and found this sweater.  It's perfect for this time of year.  It's super fuzzy and warm.  The "WISH" letters are really sparkly and festive.  I chose to wear it with my faux leather skirt from Forever 21 and my Steve Madden ankle boots.  The whole look just feels very cheerful.

Holiday Dress








Dress: H&M
Booties: Go Jane
Purse: Expressions NYC
Tights: Meijer, but you can find them anywhere

          Since it's getting into the Holiday season I've decided to do a post about what I would maybe wear if I were going to a party.  I will be going to one on Christmas, but we've decided on an "ugly sweater" theme, so I can't wear a dress.  However, I did wear this one last year on New Years.  I never got chance to blog about it because the weather was awful.  I though this would be a good opportunity.  This dress is from H&M, last year I believe.  What I really love about this dress is the collar.  I am still very much into collars.  They are something that I have always liked.  The color is also perfect for this time of year.  I had to wear it with fleece lined tights because where I live it's freezing.  You can find some at pretty much any store.  They come in various colors and I highly recommend them for the cold.

Chilled











Sweatshirt: H&M
Jeans: Forever 21
Fur Jacket: H&M
Boots: Steve Madden
Purse: Kelsi Dagger
Rings: H&M
Sunglasses: Forever 21
Necklace: antique, from my Great-Grandma


          This is about the time when I start counting down the days for everything, mainly until Spring. Since that's pretty far away, I count down until Christmas, New Years, my vacation, and weekends.  Counting down helps the season pass by faster.  It's not even Winter yet and it's virtually intolerable out.  Of course wearing warm and fuzzy clothing helps with the cold.  I'd wear a fur coat much more often if I had more of them.  This one is from H&M, last year.  I got the sweatshirt from H&M too, this fall.  I don't think they have it anymore, but they do have these pants.  My Kelsi Dagger purse was discovered on Black Friday.  I love the shiny hologram look.

Tree Farm












 Jacket: Forever 21
Scarf: Forever 21
Top: Kohl's
Boots: Steve Madden


          On Saturday my family went to go cut down a Christmas tree.   It's been a very long time since we have done this.  My parents have been setting up the fake tree for the past several years.  I guess they just decided it's time to get a real one again, since my little sister is older now.
          Everything I wore is old, except the scarf.  I got that from Forever 21 a few weeks ago and I'm pretty sure they still have it.  Luckily, it was pretty warm that day so I didn't have to wear a big, bulky coat.  It was a good opportunity to wear this faux leather jacket, also from Forever 21.  I went with my "life is too short to wear bad clothes" philosophy.  I would have just worn a hoodie, gym shoes, and jeans, but I think that wastes an opportunity to wear real clothing and have a bit more fun.

Thanksgiving Day Parade













Coat: H&M
Leggings: H&M
Sweater: Sheinside
Boots: Kohl's
Mittens: ASOS
Purse: Marc by Marc Jacobs

Happy Thanksgiving all.  This morning I woke up early and went to the parade on State Street, in Chicago.  I have been there once before, but don't really remember.  It was pretty fun, but very cold.  My Thanksgiving outfit consists of these leather panel leggings from H&M and this Sweater from Sheinside.  I know it's hard to tell what my sweater looks like.  It was too cold to take my coat off.  It just has a bunch of colorful geometric designs that kind of look like ice crystals.  I'm sure I will wear it plenty more this winter and maybe in another post.  I hope everybody had a nice Thanksgiving!
