It really hasn't been that long, but I miss blogging. I know I've been able to post a couple of times over the past few weeks, but it's hardly been enough. Dead week and finals week consumed my life, and I've barely had a chance to take photos or comment on my favorite blogs. Fortunately, I had my last "final" (it wasn't a test; I just had to show up, but the professor wasn't even there) this morning, and break is about to begin, so I'll have more time from now on. A few of my good friends are graduating, and I'll be gone from all of my Illinois friends for a month, so any time not doing homework or studying has been spent with them. This whole being at home for a month thing is pretty bittersweet. On one hand, I'm sad to be away from all of my friends here, but on the other...it is freezing here. California weather cannot come soon enough.
I took these photos yesterday while on a coffee date with Katie and Lexi, and we all almost froze to death taking them. I'm so happy to have them here since they're two of the only people on campus who would stand outside sans coats for a few minutes just to take pictures of our outfits. I decided it was time to break out the cat dress again, and when I realized that it had been forever since I donned a feminine collar, I knew I needed to fix that. This dress really is a great layering piece, which means that I'm going to have to see what else I can do with it soon. Side note: since just about every blogger on the planet owns this dress, does anyone else think it's time for some sort of link-up?
P.S. Please shop my closet for some cheap clothes so I can afford to buy all of the Christmas presents I need to get!
As for the rest of my time in the Midwest this year, I'll be hanging out with Mary today, getting dinner with Jenn and our friend Aaron tonight, and then going to see "The Hobbit" at midnight. There are so many good movies coming out, I almost can't handle it. I might have to skip buying Christmas presents and just buy movie tickets instead. Sorry, friends and family. I have to see "Inside Llewyn Davis" and "American Hustle" instead. You understand.
