Instagram Roundup: One month to freedom…

I can’t believe the semester is almost over! Classes wrap up next week, which means finals are approaching. I cannot wait to get this month over with so that I can go home, watch Christmas movies and spend time with family! Fortunately, we don’t have cable at my student house…which is actually a good thing since I would get nothing done for the next month with all of the Christmas programs on TV right now!

It’s gotten significantly colder this week as we near the end of November…except for Wednesday, when it surprisingly warmed up! At this point, I am in winter mood and that means sweaters!

One more month and then I am home free…and home on Christmas break! Thank goodness!

Instagram Roundup: Stress-Free Week…

This certainly has not been one of my busy weeks. Between post planning and planning for upcoming essays…it has been rather relaxing and full of marathons of Scandal (I love that show). Overall, it has been a stress free week, which is why I am happily writing this post and eager to get to show you the outfits that I wore around!

The usual sweater + scarf motif worked well in this on again, off again cool weather. If you can believe it, I even missed an outfit day (Wednesday) because I was too into Netflix, to get up and take a shot of whatever I wore that day. It’s always a shame when that happens…I guess that is what you get when you are living completely free of stress for a day…

I can almost sense the snow that is right around the corner…and I am hoping it delays until my winter boots come in because otherwise I will be sporting (and ruining) my best pair of riding boots with thick socks…and of course, who willingly wants to do that to their shoes? (No woman I know…)

Instagram Roundup: Oddly warm weather…

This has been a stressful week – between essays, classes and projects due…I am glad that it has come to an end and I am COMPLETELY free this weekend! This weekend is about Netflix and chill relaxation…in every sense of the phrase. I am planning on a lot of Scandal watching and sleeping…as lazy as that sounds! It’s pretty much my last weekend of relaxation as we quickly slip into finals season…I can’t even think about it!

This week was not cold either – I don’t know what is up lately with this weather…does the sky know that it is November!? We have had weather between 10 and 15 degrees (Celsius), which is not usually the case! I am not complaining, in fact I am enjoying this perfect sweater weather and this week’s outfits were full of sweaters and boots – just the way I like it!

Leather, sweaters and cute booties? Not a bad week at all! Of course, we cannot go a week without the classic blanket scarf as well. Blanket scarves are my addiction right now – I can never have enough. They are so cozy and warm and make a great pillow when you get tired (interesting idea? Use them outside of fashion? Yup!)
