2 days!

Only 1 final exam, the delivery of an occlusal splint, a final evaluation and a major apartment cleaning stand between me and a plane ride into JFK. It really is the most wonderful time of the year!

J.Crew Score!

I had to return a birthday gift at J.Crew today and when I walked in the salesgirl told me that the entire store was 30% off. I was so pumped. The jeans I returned turned into a super cute dress I want to wear for Christmas Eve so I can eat and eat and a belt and a necklace. Such a good deal! I really could have bought everything in there. Sometimes they are just so spot on with everything that I am loving and this was one of those times. I was coveting the cashmere sweaters, but I knew the price tag was still a little too high. Fingers crossed for after Christmas super sales! How cute is my new dress?!?!

All I Want For Christmas

Since spending my entire long weekend volunteering I am just plain exhausted. We have our big move coming up this weekend. The movers are officially coming on Sunday morning and we have yet to pack anything except for 1 box. There are only 10 more days until I go home for Christmas, but they are packed full of studying and projects, community service and chores! I can't wait to get some rest and spend some relaxing holiday time with my boyfriend, family and friends. There are just so many loose ends to tie up and I get myself so stressed! Any tips for beating the finals week stress?

Outfit of the Day

Untitled #3
It was freezing by Southern California standards this morning so I thought it would be fun to pull out my fur vest and layer it over my outfit to start the day. It was 70 by mid-afternoon so the vest never went back on, but it felt a little more like Christmas time with that chill in the air when I left the house. I am loving this knee length pleated skirt from Kohl's. It is great for school because it's long and is easy to sit and move around in. The Nine West shoes I got for my birthday are really high, but super comfortable. I like to choose heels with a wedge in front because they tend to be much more comfortable, and therefore more practical. I was thinking this outfit would be cute for Christmas at home as well with some tights and different shoes. The plum color of the skirt and the fur makes it just holiday enough without being red and green. How else can I wear this skirt?

In honor of the Vicky's Fashion Show tonight, one of my fave events to kick off the holiday season, I wanted to share this adorable picture of my favorite Angel Miranda Kerr. I totally wish I could pull this off, but I can't imagine doing errands in the Inland Empire dressed like this. The Annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show airs tonight at 10pm.

Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Boss

Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Boss

With a professional dress code at school it can be difficult to find your personal style, but with fun accessories and cool, but practical shoes, you can find ways to express your taste and be tasteful! Choose high necklines the complement statement necklaces and opt for longer skirts that have stretch so they are easy to sit in. With a little imagination, boring work clothes can be taken to a whole other level!

Skating in A Winter Wonderland

I got an email from the Los Angeles Kings that they have set up ice at LA Live. It has been ages since I skated and nothing says the Christmas season more to me than strapping on the blades and stepping out on the ice. I think we all need a little winter cheer! Hopefully my friends agree and we all get into the spirit with a little dinner and skating! Then I can wear a cute outfit like this for winter in SoCal.
