Keepin' Warm

jumper: wasteland, blouse, sweater, & wedges: thrifted, coat: calvin klein, costco, purse: ross
Of course as I'm typing this I'm listening to A Very She and Him Christmas, which is putting me right in the holiday mood. ♥ Though when I do hear these classic tunes, I can't help but long for a white Christmas... It's been years since I've lived somewhere where it snows, but I still have a small part of me that can't see a proper Christmas without it! Every time I visit the blog of Maria Elyse of First Impressions I feel that longing for snow. Her photos (not to mentions outfits!) are beautiful.

Enough about snow! These photos have no snow in them, as you probably can see. ;) It's definitely getting chillier around here. I'm wearing three layers on top in this outfit, but alas, while taking these photos my toes and fingers were so very numb! Luckily throughout most of the day I was decently warm.

A college update: if you follow me on twitter you know this, but I received my first college acceptance yesterday! I've been accepted into George Fox University. :) And want to know something else that happened? The director of communications at Fox emailed me today saying that he saw my post on twitter about being accepted to the school, and he said that if I decide to enroll, there could already be a possible student job for me in the marketing communications office because of my knowledge of blogging and social media. Isn't that crazy and interesting?! Talk to you soon! Tomorrow's Friday! xx
currently listening to... She and Him - Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
