fall transition

Many apologies for the lack of posting lately. School obviously comes before blogging and senior year is busy, busy, busy. I have also been digging my cold weather clothes out of storage and trying to remember how to look cute and be warm!
First: sweater dress, scarf and boots (it was a typical New England weather changing day when I wore this, so I had a cardigan to wear too)

Going to visit a friend for part of fall break!

the lining of these booties is purple:-)

new jeans that I found on sale and fit surprisingly well

That's all; there is lots to be done from research to event planning to rehearsal.

sweater vests and skirts

I posted once before about Uber Chic for Cheap before - Madeline just a posted my "reader request" with some much less expensive options of a few items from Banana Republic. It's great, you should all check it out! I particularly like:
(from Forever 21) I have been coveting long sweater vests with big buttons. This is not quite a vest but I really like the color options.
(from NETILZ on Etsy) This is just really pretty.
(from Arden B) I need some more interesting professional skirts for work, that help me look a little older as I look young-ish for my age. I'm learning just how hard it is to wear fun styles and look old...

I was in New York visiting my sister and family this weekend so an outfit post will be coming soon:-)

i miss this

These pictures are from a couple of weeks ago when it was gorgeous and sunny and WARM. Now it is cold and rainy and it snowed yesterday. These pictures are in remembrance.

I like to dress up for work

I really do enjoy any excuse to dress up. Work (in the Clark admissions office) is the current excuse. Here's a few of my outfits lately.

This is one of my favorite little dresses and I've been experimenting with the many ways to wear it as summer turns to fall.

In complete honesty, the two pictures above are from the morning after I wore that outfit because I forgot to take pictures and really liked it.
Below is a new shirt found on sale at Target (yes, I'm cheap) with new black tights my mom bought me. New tights are just so wonderful!

Hope you enjoyed! Keeping up with blogging during school is just one of the many changes of senior year.

PS - My darling sister Nadia just sent my some Bell X1 and I am loving their music.

orange and blue and go dolphins!

Anna is from Florida and in consequently a Gators fan. She also has a wonderful mom who was disappointed to hear that she did not have Rosh Hashanah or Gator watching plans and offered to help her organize a football watching party. 
Sasha doesn't really care the slightest bit about football, but she loves any reason to celebrate and get dressed up and have fun with friends. 
Result: an orange and blue themed gator watching party.
blue moon with oranges in blue cups
cheese-its, carrots with hummus, blue corn chips and guacamole
lots of good friends!

here's how it turned out:

lots and lots of fun!
