Throughout the years, I feel like I've always purchased safe statement pieces. I'm not exactly sure how to put that in words. I guess you could say I've purchased stuff that my mom would approve of and not find to be an unreasonable purchase. With this particular cardigan, I can almost imagine her nagging.

"That thing will get caught in everything!" (it does)
"You can probably use that for like two normal outfits!" (challenge accepted)
"The washing machine will kill it." (I love it so much that it'll get special hand wash treatment)

Even so, I've decided that I'm going to love this piece forever and ever and try my best to incorporate it into as many outfits as possible. Every now and then, my school has an outdoor market of sorts, where vendors set up tents on campus. I purchased this beauty for $10 from one of my favorite tents, which contained pretty unique, cheap apparel. I've noticed similar prints around lately, but the fringes were something new, which attracted me to the product. 

I absolutely love its thin composition, yet cozy feel. I'm not a huge fan of bulky clothing, which is part of the reason I strongly dislike wintertime, but the more thin, yet wearable during cold weather clothing I find, the more I warm up to months like November. 

I can't believe we're a week away from the start of December, and a bit over a month away from the New Year! I also can't believe that in about 3 weeks, I will be done with my first semester as a college sophomore, and, most importantly, I will return home to all my beloved clothing items that didn't make the cut to California. That's probably the only positive to going back home, but I'll take it :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and reading my random rambles!

I truly appreciate it! :)

This past weekend was filled with lots of cuddling and lots of Nutella, so, it was basically filled with everything good in the world. To our surprise, though, this stunning lad and I managed to somehow leave behind a cozy bed filled with blankets and get all prim and proper for a night out in Hollywood.

We were originally supposed to dress up as Jay Gatsby and Daisy Buchanan for Halloween, but we ended up not going out that weekend. So to make up for it, we went big for an AFI Fest movie screening. We actually didn't end up seeing the movie we had planned to, but what we DID see was so great! Breathe In will be in theaters starting March 2014 and it is SO worth the ticket, no matter what the IMDB rating says. It's by the same team that put together Like Crazy, another movie that I strongly recommend. Cried like a little baby throughout both of them, so if you like drama, you're in for a real treat with those two!

In terms of outfit choice, the dress was the cheapest, most Daisy-like thing I could find at the mall. I had originally purchased it more out of necessity than anything else, but I've fallen in love with the tutu bottom and sparkly top combination. Wearing it has made me feel like a true princess :). The jacket and bag were completely unplanned parts of the outfit, as I needed to fit a huge camera in my bag and the jacket was the only one I had brought with me for the entire weekend. In the end I was digging it aesthetically and I was super warm, too, so no complaints there!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

And remember, come March, you should be all over Breathe In.
