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

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.

Yesterday the birthday of one of my best friends.
I decided to dress up a little to celebrate.

Happy Birthday, Robin.
p.s. Happy Halloween to all of our Readers! Have a safe night out tonight and look forward to Costume Pictures! ;)
About two months ago, Jen bought me these lovely pair of side-ripped tights from Urban Outfitters. The catch is, they only look side-ripped, but they’re perfectly intact. When I put them on this morning, perhaps in a bit of a rush, I accidentally tore a huge hole in the side of one leg. While I brainstormed ways to make it look uniformly distressed, I put on a pair of boots to cover the hole up. Don’t you hate it when you ruin something you love wearing – especially when it’s the first time you’ve worn it? I figured, the tear would be even LESS worth it if I didn’t at least get a picture in it. I caught Kay on her way back to class and voila!

At least I finally learned how to play pool today. :)
So for the past few days it’s been ridiculously rainy, windy, and cold. The weather has been in the 40s and I’ve been piling on layer after layer. All of a sudden, starting yesterday, it’s been warm…up to the 70s. i mean, i’m not going to complain as long as the weather stays this nice.
wait, i just checked the weather. it’s back down to the 50s and it’s rainy today. ohh bipolar weather, stop messing with my emotions :(
my large, blue, ruffle mexx scarf is the love of my life. you guys saw it before in my prague post but i found a new way to wear it…as a cardigan! :) it’s cozy and warm and humongous that i never want to take it off. most of my friends at college are guys and they’re all like “what is that thing? it’s fucking huge!?” but i love it nevertheless.
yay for awkward self-portraits in my dorm room. you can see my closet to the right of the picture. i keep my room messy, just the way i like it. until next time! hopefully the weather will be a little more under control. :)

The weather is getting really cold here in Jersey. Today the high is 55°F so i’ll be layering like crazy. I love the cold (unless it’s windy). :) Anyway, this will be my last Europe post; sad, i know, right? But I’ve condensed both my Berlin outfits into this last post. Enjoy!

the picture abonve is one of my favorite pictures i took in germany. you can see the Brandenburg Gate in the background. I just wish that extra sign wasn’t in the picture but oh well. :) and below are remaining pieces of the Berlin Wall:

I had just about the most amazing weekend. I spent Friday night with the family, and caught up a whole bunch with my mom. Saturday night, I actually had my first few drinks at college, since being here for more than a year. My friend’s 21st birthday party was really great, and super classy, just like she wanted it to be. :) After that, I danced it all off at another party. Fun nights, and fun memories. This morning, I woke up with a very mild hangover, but am super happy and functioning better than a usual rainy Sunday morning. I concocted a weird outfit which is a cross between Blair Waldorf and Britney Spears’s Circus-inspired costumes.
Giving a little bit of attitude, of course. I just got these red shorts in the mail last week and have been waiting forever to wear them.
Kay’s wonderful artistic eye for photography suggested an opening up of my favorite bubble umbrella shot. :)
A view of the back, not as awesome as the front, I’d say.
And a close up, a la Anthropologie spread (September 2009) without the guy.
