Polka Dots and Peplums

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

Happy Tuesday guys, today is a more chipper Tuesday than most since today was my last day of classes until next week AND in an hour I will be heading home!! ahhhh home. There is so much warmth and comfort in that word. With the combination of the autumn weather and the holidays beginning, this truly is my favorite time of the year. There is that slight chill and crisp feeling in the air, the aroma of homemade apple cider, and the oh so so needed quality time to be spent with my family.
Once again the Nebraska weather has decided to change its mind, but hey I am not complaining. This past weekend and today have been beautiful. My fingers are crossed I can keep that winter coat still shoved in my closet a bit longer. 
Maxi skirts have been one of my favorite turn-to pieces this fall. They are effortlessly chic, and are easily capable of going from day to night. And if you haven't noticed the peplum craze this fall you've clearly been locked in a closet.  From dresses, skirts, and tops. I snatched up this peplum top in Colorado, such a classic piece. 
and I never thought I would say this, but I am loving skulls lately...who would have thought!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving guys, Gobble till ya Wobble!! ;)

Chin up

Friday, November 16, 2012

Well this week sort of well, sucked. I am not trying to throw another pity party, Lord knows I've thrown three too many this week. My thoughts and my over thinking consumed me and led me doubting who I was as a person. When you start to doubt yourself, you begin to doubt everything in your life. I am so thankful to be surrounded by such wonderful friends. One especially who lives a life full of purpose and meaning, and who shares that purpose and meaning with others. This friend shared a special quote with me, "Darling, the world is not really against you, the only thing thats against you is yourself". There is so much truth in that sentence. It's time to keep my chin up put on my spike and stud combat boots, take this world on and find the beauty in the ugliest of days.

Studs, spikes, and leather are beginning to appear everywhere. From bags, clothing, shoes, and accessories. The trend is spiking, turning duds into studs. Think the look of spikes and leather is just for biker babes? Add a soft sweater or top to tone the tough chick into tough chic. For days where the sun isn't so bright, throw on a pair of tights!
