Florals for Winter
|Dress: c/o August Wrinkle Kimono: Rue 21 Cardigan: Target Heels: Payless Beanie, Bangles, & Shades: Philippines|
I'm having fun playing with my darker palette this winter. This dress from August Wrinkle has turned out to be one of my favorite items. Ever. The deep burgundy (or maroon, oxblood, whatever you want to call it) color is perfect! One of the best ways to wear a dress for colder weather is by layering. Here I've mixed in a floral print underneath my cardigan to create an even more eye-catching look. Its simple but still adds that extra tidbit that makes a look interesting. Topped with a beanie and some aviators, I felt pretty set to face the day.
College life has been good. I'm just soaking in everything from my different classes, and having a blast in my Pilates and Zumba classes. The only problem I have is with the scheduling of Zumba...I have my Psychology class right after, so I always arrive a hot, sweaty mess. On Tuesday I was out of breath as I collapsed into my desk and the guy I sat down next to looked at me sort of funny before asking if I'd just run over or something. The look of utter confusion and amusement on his face was priceless.
Oh, and get this, he's a cute guy who's also in my Photography class that has a tendency of smiling real big at me whenever we bump into each other. So I'm sure he really appreciated my dripping brow and stench of deodorant that day. Sigh. I have got to invest in some cuter workout gear...
I've come to the conclusion that our community college is just too small though. Coming from a private school, I'm used to small numbers...but seriously, I feel like I see the same faces every day. What most annoys me though is the same outfit I see on every girl. Everyday. It is a variation of this: leggings/sweats/over-embellished skinny jeans + branded hoodie + uggs or boots. Really ladies? I know its cold outside, but everyday? Come on now. Don't leave me walking around in dresses alone! Fleece-lined tights are just as warm as jeans - in fact, I find them warmer.
PS: Don't forget, the international MsDressy giveaway is still going on here!
Even the darkness is not dark to you; the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you.
