bury me in satin

I officially love Montana. No classes on Voting Day and Veteran's Day?? I'm sold. Seriously, having a day off in the middle of the week is so wonderful. Plus, it screws up all of the professors' class syllabus' so I don't have a single lab this week, either. Which means nine straight days of sleeping in. EEEEEP. I'm. So. Glad.
I took these pictures the other day- my first experience with the tri-pod. It went rougher than I expected. There were people everywhere and putting myself perfectly in the frame was so tricky! Plus, it's been getting so so so cold and my fingers were freezing. This was probably the best picture of the day....and it's still pretty sillly. Ha!! I bought these maroon tights at f21 this weekend and I love them all except for how they fit. One size fits all?? Bah! Personally, I always buy them in big sizes because I hate when they slip and fall all day long and these did just that. I like when they go to my belly button!
I grabbed this sweater when I went home last weekend and I've already worn it three times already. I really didn't think anything of it, but who knew I would be incorporating my light brown sweater into so many outfits for the fall?? This dress is old, but the last time I posted it was in the summer so turning it to fall was lots of fun! I love how the maroon tights worked with the reds in the dress. I hope you aren't going to get sick of these boots anytime soon. I've posted them countless times already...and I'm certain they will be around through all the winter months ahead. Hehe:)
This is my roommate!! Meet Jenny. I think you might have already...but...she's fantastic! We're very different as you can tell right off the bat from our "casual" attire day-to-day looks, but we get alone super well. The tv I ordered in the mail last week is finally getting here today and we're going to go set it up! I'm so excited! We're also going to be living together next year too with two of our friends in an apartment on campus. EEEP. I can already feel that sophomore year is going to be so much better than freshmen year....
dress: forever21 sweater: old navy tights: f21 boots: thrifted by my boy.
Anyways, my creativity is kind of off the rocker today. I'm tired. This week has been kind of a major dud so far. You know those days where you are just completely and utterly moody and the mere fact that you are unhappy even if you have no reason to be makes you even more unhappy? It's a vicious circle, too. I thought it was just the woes of womanhood knocking at my door, but, no. That would have been too easy ;). But I'm A-Okay now and I'm going to enjoy the last homestretch of the semester!! Eeeep. I can't wait for Thanksgiving!
Love,
Maggie

Lay me down on a bed of roses. Sink me in a river at dawn. Send me away with the words of a love song.

Good title choice today Maggie!

You get voting day and veterans day off? Tech fails in that aspect. Darn.

And we're definitely almost to Thanksgiving. Just hang in there!

~Abby~ said...

Yayyy no school! :)
I REALLY love that outfit! It looks so pretty with the fall weather & leaves. Cute pictures with you and Jenny. ;)

I hate being unhappy for no reason! Ugh hate those bad moods. :/

Awww Miss Maggie you are way too adorable! Love the colors in this outfit and awesome boots:D

natalie said...

I really like that sweater, it looks comfy and like it can really go with almost anything, which is always good! And your boots, too. :)

Voting and Veterans Day off? You lucky duck! Nice to meet your roommate. :D It's neat how people that are quite different still get along great.

I know what you mean about that vicious cycle, too. You're unhappy and then you realize that you have no real reason to be unhappy which makes you even more unhappy and it just sucks. :/ So I hope you feel better!

Sydney, The Rabbit-Hearted Girl said...

i'm jealous of everyone that has school off this weekend, you're so lucky you get to sleep in! and i am MADLY in love with your boots!

Ali said...

Your boots are amazing and go with those tights perfectly! Cute dress, too! And voting day off? Sounds awesome. :)

i have yet to try out the tripod experience (I am waiting for Santa to bring me one) but it looks like you are getting the hang of it. Your outfit is very cute,bummer about the tights though

I love those colors! Gooorgeous outfit girl!
<3, Jo

Stel said...

You look super cute in these images. I love that you have a smile on your face in all of these or are laughing. It looks like you are enjoying yourself!!

I agree with you on the tights, I always buy mine quite big, I hate when they are too short/tight and you have to keep pulling them up.

Liz said...

Lucky girl, I'd love to sleep in for 9 days straight but it seems when I have the day off I work :(
Cute fall look, I so want a cream beanie

Jessica said...

this is cute!! :D :D i love your outfit + your shoes are cool ^^

SMASH said...

Your outfit is very adorable, the tights, the brown boots, your little floral dress--all super cute! Also, I don't think I have the balls to bring my tripod to a public space and take photos so good for you for being brave!

I completely agree with you about the tights thing. The worst thing is to have them rolling down during the day. And that was brave of you taking self-timered photos with tons of people out and about!

Becca said...

Pretty dress!
And I like those boots. Because I can match you when you wear them :)
Yay!

And I like the tights!

Where do you get all your tights?
I really don't have any. But how useful they would be!

Matt said...

Super cute outfit, and great pictures too! I also just love the print on that dress! You guys look like you are having so much fun too! :)

Charlotte said...
