Here is another look from my Thanksgiving break spent in Santa Fe. Usually, this would be far off anything I would wear on a day-to-day basis (all the places I interact with on a constant basis- southern NM, Texas, LA- are known for being on the warmer side of the spectrum). However, this coat is something I've been having to pull out a lot recently, even in Las Cruces, where nowadays you can't tell if by noon you'll need a coat or a spaghetti strap.

Speaking of coats, this little number and I were meant to be. I walked into a Forever 21 set on finding something cheap and practical and not bulky. I HATE winter clothes and layering, so I always need to quadruple think about the purchases I make and ensure that I actually like them enough to wear them. Anyway, this beauty happened to be the deal of the week- about $22, give or take.

The only one left was on the mannequin, and should I choose to ask someone to take it down, I had to buy it- no matter if it did not fit me. I didn't wanna risk spending money on something ill-fitting, so I decided to drown my sorrows in the fitting room with the help of about 10 other beautiful things. Long story short- as I was parting ways with at least 8 items and drowning in more tears, it was right there staring me in the eyes: my lovely red coat, exactly the size I needed (one size larger than the one on the mannequin). Can you say match made in heaven?!?

I left bae behind for winter break while I take in some sun smog in lovely Los Angeles. Though I'm already deep in some winter break adventures, I still have 3 papers to go until the semester ends. Fingers crossed those motivation levels stay decent!

I hope everyone is having a great finals week/beginning of winter break! Thank you for stopping by!
