I usually enjoy a bit of color coordinating and thoughtful pattern mixing, but this morning I simply could not be bothered with the process. It was dark in my room, I was cold, and I was also tired. This all adds up to me not caring whether or not I looked as if I had gotten dressed with my eyes closed and I have never been more pleased. I love a bold print or colored sweater and I love a good floral, so why not put them together? If it’s what you feel good in, then it’s what you look good in!
This morning I had planned to stay in bed watching YouTube videos of people eating burgers from various fast food restaurants and telling the camera which is their favorite. I love a good burger, but I tend to love a good outing a bit more, so when I received a call from a friend asking if I wanted to hit up Michaels with her I was like, “✅✨🔥” (translation: “That sounds like a great time”). I got completely ready in a record breaking 15 minutes and went for that very simply but also mildly cool aesthetic. Rather than trying to fool around with prints I paired this basic black tank dress from F21 with a fringe necklace for statement and color. Then, because I’m overeager for fall, I added on this basic black cardigan from CATO Fashion.
Hello everyone! And by hello, I actually mean goodnight since it’s dark outside where I live right now (the joys of winter). I wish I could have posted this earlier but I was having internet issues (I have IE9 and need to upgrade to be able to continue using WordPress to the max). Regardless, here is my outfit from Thanksgiving (I decided to get a little fancy). I went lace on lace because I sweet like a cupcake.
If you don’t live somewhere on the non-northern hemisphere (or perhaps it’s more of a vertical split in the planet that determines weather), like, for example, Australia, then you’ve probably realized that autumn is on its way. Unfortunately for me, it seems to be taking a leisurely stroll to my neighborhood when it could have just sped over in its Ferrari. So, until autumn does actually hit its destination, I’ll have to resign myself to making Polyvore sets of all the outfit ideas I’d like to try when the tree leaves get crispy.

Sorry if you live in the koala’s native country, in which the sentiments of this post are slightly irrelevant. If it makes you feel better, you still get to brag about your geographical superiority. Being a country and a continent at the same time totally triumphs over every other country or continent’s feats. Though it does make me wonder what it must be like to be New Zealand. I don’t think most Americans even know what a Zealandia is…curse you World Geography (which you can probably tell I did poorly in)!
