Fall Fashion Week Fail.

So, I ended up not doing the weekend Fall Fashion week thing. Last night, I ended up putting on my pajama pants, t-shirt and cardigan at 5:00pm. So, needless to say I didn't get a shot of my outfit before that.

As far as today goes, I'm not really feeling it. I'm back in Buckhannon in my dorm room and getting ready to put back on my pajama pants and t-shirt and start studying for the rest of the night.

I have 2 tests this upcoming week.

I had a GREAT weekend at home though. My mom, dad and grandma are so good to me. My mom took me shopping and out to dinner a couple times. My dad made me breakfast on Saturday morning. It's the best to wake up to the smell of coffee, eggs and bacon. My grandma helped me make my ring bearer pillow for the wedding! It's so awesome! very vintage! i love it! :-)

All in all it was a great and much needed weekend at home. Only 28 days until I get to see Matt again! SO much work to do before then! This semester is going to FLY by here at the end I do believe! Thank goodness! haha!!

Sorry for the fall fashion week fail.

I LOVED it! It was so fun to see everyone's outfits and get some new style ideas. Also, made some new blog friends I do believe!

Well... off to the library with coffee mug in hand!

Fall Fashion Week:: DAY FIVE & MUSIC FRIDAY

Well, today has been a rainy, cold and dreary day. So I went to my grandma's and we made my ring bearer pillow! :-) For my wedding I'm doing a lot of things myself. I'm really excited about it!!! It turned out really cute. No pictures yet... gotta wait until the day! hehe!!!

Tonight we're going to attempt to go to the WVU Homecoming Parade... I say attempt because it's raining and cold and we may end up not making it there and just going out to dinner.

Here's what I'm wearing today::

*sorry for the blur... I don't know what happened?!*
Hat:: Forever 21
Grey Cardigan:: F21
Red T-shirt:: Target

Tie Belt:: from a bunch of tie's my mom's boss donated to my dad. I stole some!! HAHA!
Skinny Jeans:: F21 (my favorite jeans!)
Boots:: Blowfish. I absolutely LOVE their boots. I have 2 pairs. I think I am going to be ordering a couple more to prepare myself for the wintery weather of Chicago to come next year! HAHA!

So there you have it. Day Five! I'm carrying my fall fashion week on until Sunday! Join in the fun!!!

Also, I am thinking about starting something new on my blog. Seeing as though I LOVE music. I am thinking about doing "Music Friday's" where I put a song or youtube video of a song on my blog of what I'm listening to right now. I think the 3 people that read my blog on a regular basis should also join in... it's always fun to see what other people are listening to. You never know, maybe somebody will play something that you fall in love with!!!

To start it off here is this week's "MUSIC FRIDAY" song::

It won't let me embed the actual video. So this is what you get::

I am loving this song recently. I love Amos Lee's voice. For some reason, in fall and winter my music selection usually consists of burly, bearded men singers (Ray Lamontagne, Damien Rice, Amos Lee, Iron & Wine) so you'll probably be seeing a lot of those, but I will try to throw in some others.

If you care to join in Music Friday, post a comment and let me know!!!

Fall Fashion Week:: DAY FOUR!!!!

Today has been a great day! I went to lunch with my mom and brother. Got some delicious boneless wings. Then went to Michael's crafts with my grandma and got some mustard yellow yarn to start knitting my scarf! :-) I love that my mom taught me to knit! It is a lot of fun and a nice relaxing pass time.

Anyways... then I went and got part of my bridesmaid gifts for the wedding! :-)

Here's what I wore today:::
Black Jacket:: Thrifted
Grey Sweatshirt material dress:: F21
Tights:: Gabe's
Shoes:: Black Ballet flats (I have no idea where they're from because I've had them for like 4 years)Scarf::: I LOVE this scarf. I got it at a little shop in AFRICA! I wear it a lot.

I am so sad tomorrow is the last day of Fall Fashion week!!! :-( I might just have to continue on with it.. haha! It's been a lot of fun!

Fall Fashion Week:: DAY THREE!!!!

FALL BREAK!!!! I have Thursday and Friday off and the weekend of course. So I just made it home this evening, had a homemade dinner with my parents and now I'm going to do some homework and relax a little bit.

So, here is what I wore today...

As you can see, I can use my parents nice camera since I am at home now and can take more "artistic" pictures. haha!
So here is today's outfit. It was INCREDIBLY beautiful here today. 71 degrees and on the ride home I had all the windows down blaring some john mayer and imogen heap. :-) The leaves are BEAUTIFUL!

Jeans:: I love these grey skinny jeans. They're delia's sale rack! :-)
Vest:: The navy blue vest is from Urban Outiftters. I love it. I got it this summer on the sale rack and I wear it quite frequently!
T-Shirt:: Hanes HIS Way! hehe!!
Shoes:: of course, the glittery ballet flats
Hat:: I bought the hat for my Africa trip. I actually forgot I had it until I saw it in my closet today and decided it was a perfect day for it.

I actually started out my morning with a yellow cardigan, but because it was so warm I decided to get rid of it and save that for later cooler fall weather! ;-)

Fall Fashion Week:: DAY TWO!!

Well, I managed to wake up and get motivated to look cute today. Even though it's my day off, it's not going to be so lazy! I need to go run some errands and get some work done in the library.

So, if you have no idea why I am posting this, see the previous post or go HERE !

This cream color dress is probably one of my oldest and most worn pieces of clothing that I own. I absolutely love it. I wear it almost year round! (sorry the picture isn't the greatest)

My shoes are gold, sequince (spelling) ballet flats that I wear practically every day. They're from F21.

The jacket is from Urban Outfitters (but I got it's at Gabe's!! hehe!)

It's a little warmer today going up to 65 degrees. So this is a perfect little fall outfit for a warmer fall day spent running errands and doing some homework.

Fall Fashion Week:: DAY ONE!

So, my favorite blogger, Emery, over at Moms Are For Everyone is doing a fall fashion week started by THIS GIRL. and seeing as though I do love fall clothes I decided I would join in the fun!!

The plan is to take a picture of your fall attire every day this week (the 19th-23rd).

Here is Day One::(I had to use my webcam, so it took me forever to get a decent shot, sorry about that!)
I LOVE big plaid shirts in the fall. This is a man's Large shirt from Goodwill that I found. It's a little big, but I'm loving it on this 54 degree fall day.

Skinny jeans are my favorite. I hardly ever wear any other type of jean these days. I think I only have 1 pair of flares left actually. I think skinny jeans make me feel "skinnier" which is amazing... hehe!

This knit Barret hat is my absolute favorite. I wear it too much probably. I have about 3 of them. I am probably going to acquire one in every color before this winter is over. Love them! :-)

So there you have it! Day One! Tomorrow is a lazy day off for me, so we'll see if I manage to throw on anything cute! haha!

23 years.

I am 23 years old today.

My dad asked me this morning "Do You feel old?!" I thought about it for a second and replied "yeah! actually I kind of do". I really feel like I am growing up. I feel like 23 years OLD is appropriate. I do feel like of "mature" and like I'm REALLY and adult now. Even though I am still in college, I feel like I am a grown up. I'm sure next year will be a different story and I will REALLY feel old when I have an apartment, a husband, a new job, and a new last name. whoa.

This is going to be an amazing year. I am so excited for it! But before I get too excited, let's reflect on the last year of 22 years of age.

1.) I finished junior year of nursing school.
2.) I was in my best friend's wedding.

3.) I got a new baby niece.
4.) I worked as a nurse extern.
5.) Um... I went to AFRICA! holy cow!

6.) I got ENGAGED!
7.) I started planning the wedding of my dreams! :-) Bought my wedding dress! (such a special day with my mom and Matt's mom) You'll have to wait for a picture of that one! ;-) hehe!
8.) I started my senior year of nursing school (218 days until graduation!)
9.) I learned a lot about myself.
10.) I started working out a lot more!
11.) I was in my cousin, Audrey's wedding. (lots of weddings to come as well!)

Those are just a few of the wonderful things that happened in my year of being 22 years old. HEHE!

This next year will bring LOTS of exciting things as well.
1.) Wedding Planning
2.) Graduation
3.) Shalane and Tom's Wedding
4.) Jeremy and Kim's Wedding
5.) My Bridal Shower
6.) Ashley and Martin's Wedding
7.) Travis and Alex's Wedding
(do you see a pattern here?!?! that's a LOT of weddings. tis the time in our lives for WEDDINGS!)
8.) Taking My Boards
9.) MATT & I's WEDDING!!!!!!!!
10.) Honeymoon in JAMAICA!!!!
11.) Move to Chicago!! (live out of state for the first time)
12.) Be a nurse!!!

And of course, many many unplanned and unexpected things. I do believe this is going to be one of the best years of my life!

So pumped!!!
