It doesn’t feel that different being 19 (especially since i kept on forgetting if i was 18 or 19 for the past few months haha). My birthday has been amazing so far and I’m so grateful for all of the amazing friends i have. I love surprises and can’t get enough of them :D

So after the Turkey and indulgence in fat last night, I thought it’d be appropriate to walk all that fat off by shopping! I mean, pushing through people to get to sales, moving racks and racks of clothes back and forth – that’s some serious calorie burning right there! ;) I decided to abandon my trusty heels for this occasion, because let’s face it – there’s no way I’ll walk fast enough in those.
gray dolman sleeve shirt [charlotte russe – $5], black and white striped silk scarf [china -gift], black tights [target – $6], blue corduroy shorts [walmart – $5], black studded braided skinny belt [wetseal – $3], black flats [wetseal – $7]
I bought a boyfriend blazer and denim a-line skirt at 5-7-9 for a total of $10 – a totally sweet deal. My sister got me some cute green tights for christmas that I’ll be debuting soon. Lastly, I got these plum colored moccasins at Payless that I’ve been coveting quite a while now. I promise pictures in the near future. :)
it’s finally thanksgiving break! it’s amazing being home and taking a break from college. there’s been way too much drama lately (thanks a lot, boys :P) and too much work. i still have a sore throat but it’s getting better. hopefully i’ll be better by thanksgiving.
these pictures were from an photoshoot expedition that i went on the other day with my friend Monisha. we’re pretty big camera whores (she’s a better poser than i am). it’s always fun having these photoshoots since when we usually see each other we’re sitting in class.

…and chilly, by Houston terms, means about low 60s. Nevertheless, you’ll find natives around here wearing big heavy jackets, prepared for the “winter”. I decided to give this furry hoodie a second chance – I was just about to give it away until I realized that it was one of the few “transition” jackets I had. I was impressed that it managed to go well with some of my more fashionable items of clothing – and the fact that it managed to match my hard to match heels.
hunter green faux fur hoodie [joujou – $17], cream embroidered tank [wet seal – $5], brown beaded necklace [charlotte russe – free], teal woven belt [forever 21 – $3.50], boho print skirt [wet seal – $4], brown tights [target – $6], hunter green mary jane heels [payless – $10]
A close-up of the heels. I had to make my photographer practically lie on the ground to get a pic of these. She’s absolutely wonderful. Also, Kristania of monochromachic has the same pair – be sure to check her out, the girl’s got great style. :)
A closeup of the necklace. It came with a top, so I guess it’s technically free. ;)
I’m still in love with my giant blue scarf, but I decided to wear it around my neck this time rather than as a cardigan. I tucked it into my belt to keep it in place (and to show off the buckle). :) The warmth around my neck is also helping since I have a sore throat. Mucinex is my best friend for the next day or two.

Esperanza, as said in my previous post, is the annual fall formal held on campus. This year, I helped plan it! So…I guess it’s fair to say it was a huge deal to me. Unfortunately, I was running around being busy about half the night – so I didn’t get a lot of pictures in. I said to my suitemate, though, I need an outfit picture for my readers! :)

the title speaks for itself. but besides that little bit of news, the other day the weather was looking peculiarly nice for winter weather so i went on a photo shoot with robin who is an awesome outfit photographer :) i got this new dress from urban and i was dying to wear it for a while. i love photo shoot days; it means i won’t have to take an awkward self-portrait in front of my roommate’s closet curtain.
