Things have been pretty quiet around here lately, but that's just because finals are upon us. I survived dead week (barely), and I now I just have to make through a couple of tests, a paper, and a presentation. Easy, right? I'm really not too worried about it since the work that was stressing me out was done last week. Even so, posts might still be a little scarce this week. On top of the work, it's my last week here before going back to California for a month, which means spending time with friends before some graduate and everyone else parts ways for four weeks. 

As for outfits, you really haven't been missing much. It's mostly just been throwing on scarves, dresses, and boots and staying warm. This chunky scarf is a new favorite of mine, and while I was worried about it overwhelming on my frame at first, I can't resist that color. More mauve, please. 

In other news, I'm in full Christmas mode. I did my yearly watching of Love Actually over the weekend, I've been listening to Christmas music nonstop, and my work had our Christmas party/Secret Santa exchange on Friday. I can't say I'm crazy about walking in the snow, but hey, at least everything looks pretty right now.

  3. I think of that color as "ashes of roses". Whatever it's called, it looks great! I'm making infinity scarves as Christmas presents, so I wish I had yarn of that color ~

  4. I love that big ole chunky scarf- so cozy and warm looking while being a feminine pink!
