Sparkles and Railroads

IMG_0523
The best part of having roommates is sharing clothes. Definitely. If you can find a roommate that has good taste in clothing, you're golden. A couple weeks ago, I walked out of my closet bored and stumped and into my friend Maggie's (remember? the girl I thought was too cute to ever be friends with me?) to find an amazing sparkly gray cardigan. It's funny how just one cardigan can make you see your closet in a whole new way. I was throwing it with a white lace dress and leather detailed belt before I knew what I was doing. For the win!

If you've been following my twitter, you might have seen a glimpse of my weekend trip home! I went home to Ideeho, and boy oh boy, was it lovely to just sit around with my sister and do things like introduce her to cake pops from starbucks and continue to be surprised by the crazy things my dad does (per example: walk into the living room to see him in my mom's running shorts)(one might call them short shorts) and give my mom the hug I've been missing/needing. I'm sure that this week, you'll see a couple of my pictures from the trip home!

Anyways, school is definitely happening in full speed these days. Tests every week, lab reports, papers, reading, quizzes... it doesn't seem to ever end! I keep telling people about replying to letters or going to movies, "Oh, maybe next week when things die down!"...but I'm quickly realizing I'm fooling myself- until 3PM on December 15th, things are never going to "die down" and I'm stuck running around and studying during my every opportunity from now on. As a result...sleep is on the decline if I'm going to try to achieve everything I want. Yikes! I can't even imagine having a job right now..

Well, I hope you all have a glorious Tuesday and rest of the week! I hope I'll be back shortly but with a psych midterm and lab reports due plus a Miranda Lambert concert (EEEE! You heard me right!) blogging might have to go on the back burner for a few days- but we'll see!

Love the outfit! The bow in your hair is such a great touch. :) School will be over faster than you think! Then a whole month of break!!! Also, I'm jealous of your Miranda Lambert concert! Have fun!

GIRL AND CLOSET said...

I couldn't agree more!! I used to love sharing clothes with my room-mate, it's the best! And I have to say that your borrowed cardigan is beautiful. I'm such a fan of sequin and I love how you've put this look together! xo veronika

The sequin cardigan couldn't look better on you with that lace dress. I wish I could have a roommate who had excellent fashion tastes. Sadly, my best friend is a fashion designer but she goes to fashion school while I don't!

Oh, and Maggie, i wanted to say that you have made me a Taylor Swift fan. I never was. I used to be one of those who made fun or her music (I don't like country music that much either) but after seeing how much she is an inspiration to you, I decided to give her another chance :) And now I can't help but enjoy her songs so much. So thank you :)

Oh I do hope my roommate loves stripes and florals and bows and clothes as much as I do. But chances are that my next roommate will be Robert and I doubt he'll ever grow a love for all those things lol. But you look absolutely wonderful! Love everything! Can't wait to see photos from your trip!

Jul said...

That is a truly fabulous cardigan! I don't think I ever borrowed clothes from my flatmates at uni, perhaps I've missed a trick there!!

Leanna Kay said...

Sparkles and lace...hm...never thought they would go together but you seem to pull it off quite nicely!

By the way, your hair looks really cute.

where do you get all your fabulous hair bows? i am in desparate need of some. okay not desparate need but i do really really want some. i don't know how people work full time AND go to school. i'm lucky enough to work for my mom which means my work schedule is pretty accommodating to my school schedule. good luck with all your school stuff girl!

oh gosh i don't envy you, i remember how manic university (or college) was for me. this year things are still mad but not in the same way, my life is more in my control and less about assignments and tests. love the cardigan so much btw <3

dusanabotswana said...

Yes, sad but true, it won't die down until it's over, but glad you could enjoy some time home at least! adorable lace dress & what a fun cardi, you look so cute! I've never been able to borrow from roommates before, but after a few bad experiences loaning things I prefer a good 'ol swap now & then : )
