Sometimes it’s hard to remove yourself from the warm, coziness of your bed in the morning. While usually a time crunch that’s brought on by my attachment to a nice mattress + comforter leads to a less carefully crafted outfit for me, apparently nothing cancels out that occurrence quite like running low on wearable clothes. Procrastinating on life and laundry has never treated me better.

I have a love of sweaters that runs so great that I don’t even have a need for them to be functional anymore. This sweater does nothing to keep me warm in this emerging winter cold and I decided to continue the trend of non-winter-functional pieces by layering it over top of this pastel, floral sleeveless button-down. I’m on this new kick of pulling my summer pieced into winter wear because I like a challenge (read: my wardrobe is not as expansive as I wish it was). Don’t limit your clothes to the season friends. Mix and match to your heart’s content. Live your dreams.
The best part about going home for breaks is getting to delve into my wardrobe with all of the clothes that I haven’t been able to wear while I’m at school. For instance, I had completely forgotten that I owned this delightfully fuzzy monstrosity which is why it’s getting a little love from me today. It’s wonderful because it’s warm, but slightly less wonderful because it sheds and only has 3/4 length sleeves so my arm-shins are always cold. Despite that, my poor chilly arm-shins have never been styled better.
It’s a shame that I want to welcome November in with warm coat clothed arms and mitten covered hands, but I can’t because it’s still 70 degrees outside. Regardless of that, I refuse to go back to wearing shorts. My fall aesthetic is in full swing and while I won’t go full force with it, I won’t let the temperature stop me from wearing my tights and knitwear. For that reason, I decided to pair one of my summer favorite, this lightweight, open back F21 dress, with colored tights and a chunky cardigan. It’s warm enough to keep me from suffering in the freezing classroom but not so warm that I won’t be able to survive the actual outdoors.
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!
I’ve got floral fever. Last time you guys saw me, I was embracing the wonderful lifestyle of Flower Power Forever and today I can assure you that nothing has changed. It’s been a bit rainy and gloomy so I decided to opt for a nice oversized sweater with this simple zipper detailing, but at the end of the day I am a creature of habit. I said yes to those floral print pants and I feel no shame from it. Continue on my fellow floral lovers. Continue on in your greatness. ✿ ❀ ✿ ❀
