Snow Day

Storm Juno blew in last night... and totally cheated us.
 We got almost no snow. Six to eight inches tops. Come on. Where is the blizzard I was promised? Where is the three feet of snow that the weather called for?  
I was so ready to be snowed in all day. I thought we would have to struggle to push open the doors. Then be forced to stay inside all day by a fire while the roads were cleared. 
Of course I am so happy that we had a snow day! It was quite relaxing. But I would have loved to have the big blizzard I was so ready for!

My day consisted of a lot of reading, I am totally engrossed in this book called I Capture the Castle and am determined to finish it before I return to school tomorrow. 
I also did some baking, which didn't turn out as well as I had hoped. I got a peanut butter chocolate chip recipe from allrecipes.com and it turned out to be a bust. The cookies tasted pretty good but the texture was off so they were very crumbly, and I definitely blame the peanut butter for that. 
 I spent some time outside with my dog, Casey. Although she is sort of a wimp when it comes to the cold. 
I stayed in comfortable clothes all day; leggings, an oversized flannel, and fuzzy socks. And didn't do any studying for my final exam tomorrow... oops!

Black Jeans & Patchwork

These are my go to jeans for just about everything. They are BCBG, high waisted and just about perfect. I recently sewed on denim patches over the knees and chopped off the cuffs and I really love the way it looks! 

I am halfway through my exams, with only two more to go!! The end is in sight! 

Have a lovely weekend,

Dress, Vest & Socks: Free People Shirt: Brandy Melville Boots: Frye

Hey guys!!

Sorry it has been so long since I last posted, I tried to post this yesterday but technology failed me and I was unable to do it. 

I love the mix of prints and textures from this outfit. It was almost too much, but not quite. Thanks to my big sis Abby for this really cool, cropped daisy printed shirt!

Tomorrow is the start of my midterm exams.... I am not ready yet. I have both my math and history exams tomorrow, so it will be a difficult day. I apologize in advance for the lack of posts over the next week. 
Wish me luck!

Neutrals with a Twist

Sweater: Everlane Pants: Urban Outfitters Shoes: Converse Jacket: Vintage 

Neutral colors man. They are great. So great. Especially when mixed with a loud print. I love this simple yet classic look that I wore yesterday. 

Right after I took these pictures I went on a walk with my dog in the woods and brought my canon film camera. Recently, I have strayed away from taking pictures with my film camera, but I fell in love with that type of photography again yesterday. Using a film camera makes me stop and think about what I am taking pictures of instead of aimlessly snapping shots like I do with my digital camera. It makes each image more precious. I can't wait to develop the film in school and see how it turned out! I included a few of my finished art projects from school in todays post, like the collage I just finished in photography and a painting I did in my art class.
