If you can't tell by now, I've accidentally given myself a fall uniform lately. This consists of: circle scarf + dress + tights + booties + cardigan, and repeat. I can't say this is my most exciting outfit, but it's a good example of what I've been wearing lately. I scored this dress for less than $10 during Urban's 50% sale items promotion last month, and I like that while it's a typical silhouette for me, the print is completely different than anything I own. It's also extremely comfortable, so I'm looking forward to getting plenty of wear out of it.
These photos were taken the week before last in the alley next to my favorite coffee shop in town (which is also where most of my money goes). I've mentioned my friend Katie before, who transferred to my school this semester and has a lovely blog, The Style Duckling. Katie and I have become good friends, and we got excited when we learned that another girl on campus has a blog as well. We met up with Lexi, who blogs at Red Bows and Vintage Rose, and had a wonderful afternoon chatting about blogs and school over coffee. Naturally, we had to follow it up with taking photos, and I can't tell you how nice it is having other people here who truly understand my desire to photos of myself all the time.
It's not my favorite holiday, but I still managed to have a pretty good Halloween. My friends and I made our weekly Thursday bar trip for a quick hour after work on the actual day, and I saw all of the costumes I needed to in that time. We had a small costume party on Friday, but it was fairly uneventful. Not wanting to spend time (or effort, really) I wore a "Hello My Name Is" tag with "Life" written on it and carried a bag of lemons to be "When life gives you lemons..." Sometimes I'm clever, but I'm really just lazy.
