I am currently in the process of redecorating and painting my bedroom. It's been this awful bright purple since I was 13, so my parents and I decided it was time to make it more neutral. I have all white furniture and bedding, so we are keeping that and just getting a few new accessories. When the walls turned white, I was so bored with my all white room. So I turned to pinterest for some inspiration, and fell in love with gallery walls, and bright accessories.
These are just some of my favorites, but you should definitely check out my pinterest board for more!
Sorry I haven't posted in awhile. It's midterm week, and it's just as bad as I remembered. I feel like all I've done is nap and study (but mostly nap lol). I haven't worn anything too exciting to school lately, but I want to share what I've been wearing at school. I know you guys will just love it!
I got some Tommy Hilfiger pajamas for Christmas, and have hardly gotten out of them since. They so soft and comfortable, but they won't make you sweat! It's wonderful!!
This is definitely the best time of year for school. This lovely northeast weather finally does some good. Between 2 hour delays and closings, the chances of having a full week from now until St. Patrick's Day are pretty much zero. It's just so wonderful. Moving on, this weather has made me want to only wear the warmest articles of clothing in my closet. I live in these fleece tights all winter long. They will seriously change your life (and it's a two pack!). I love a big comfy sweater, and I love this color. I'm a firm believer in texting gloves. They're life savers! Lastly, this headband and this hat look marvelous! I hope everyone is staying warm, and getting back into life after the holidays.
As I sit in my bed at 12:30 am on New Year's Eve writing this post, I am actively trying to decide what to wear tonight. You would think after my post a couple days ago, I would have an outfit. But I have no idea. I'm going to a party at my best friend's house. It'll be pretty casual, and I'm really struggling with what to wear. If I were going somewhere formal, I would re-wear my Christmas Eve skirt with something a little more NYE appropriate. At this point I'll probably throw on a sweater and a pair of jeans and call it quits. So a few minutes ago, I decided to paint my nails (literally they drying as I type). I turned to my two, absolute favorite nail polishes (Lincoln Park After Dark and Glitzerland). I used LPAD for four of my five nails, and Glitzerland for the ring finger to add a little sparkle. I love that the color is dark, but not completely black. The purple makes it a little softer while keeping the intensity. The shimmer just adds a little NYE flare to my usual color.
If you haven't noticed from the pictures, I have extremely curly hair. Knowing this, you are probably wondering why I am recommending a curling iron to you. Like everyone else, I need a change of pace. Since straightening is nearly impossible (and takes hours), I like to change my curls sometimes. I love this wand because it gives me the options I want without having to have multiple tools. What do you think? Do you have any other recommendations? I'd love to hear from you!
By now I think you all know how I love a good bargain. Tulle skirts are no different. I love how feminine and different they can be. I love the lace on this skirt (I can't decide if I like it better in blue). But, I also really like the plain black. You can find the two splurge options here and here. Let me know what you think!
1. christmas eve
If you read my earlier post (the weather did have me edit the outfit slightly), you know Christmas Eve is a big deal in my family. I loved the outfit I wore, and it was so nice to catch up with my family that came in from around the country.
2. One direction
So on Tuesday night, I did what every self-respecting, 17 year old girl should have done. I watched the One Direction TV Special on NBC, and loved every single second of it. OH MY GOSH I'M OBSESSED. But that really isn't anything new.
3. BEan boots
Santa got me a pair of Bean Boots for Christmas, and I think I'm in love. They are so warm and cute and actually practical. Definitely a good thing to get BEFORE I go off to college.
4. THe theory of everything
I went to see this movie with the girls from my physics class. Honestly, we originally went because we are all obsessed with Eddie Redmayne (we have been since we first saw him in Les Mis two years ago) . But I ended up loving the movie, and highly recommend it to everyone. It's an inspiring story, and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
On Saturday, my lovely sister graduation for THE Pennsylvania State University. We are all so happy for her, and could not wait for the big day. I've been busy with school, and didn't have time to go buy a new outfit. So I wore this dress I bought back in the fall with these tights, these flats, and this necklace (featured in my last post!). I think I was dressed just right for the occasion (maybe not the below freezing temperatures), and it was a great time for everyone.
