Whoa, it's almost been a week since Christmas! Which means it is almost the end of 2013...where did this week go? Tomorrow (today, technically) is New Year's Eve and my day is already packed! More on that later...
This outfit is from Friday when I drove 3 hours to my boyfriend's...we had very mild temperatures which is always a relief during Pennsylvania winters...but also kind of a bummer because you know it won't last. I'm obsessed with this scarf...maroon is practically my new favorite color to be honest. I love how transitional maxi skirts can be. Just throw on some thick tights underneath and you are ready to combat the intense wintry conditions. I only have one issue with long skirts...tripping on stairs!
Traveling circus...it just popped into my head has a suitable title for this post. Do you ever just, feel like a circus? Maybe not on the outside, but definitely on the inside. I feel as though I put myself into inconvenient circumstances and then wish I hadn't. Whether it's at work (the prime example in this case), school, or with friends and family, sometimes I push myself to limits and I don't even know why. I feel as though I can do more. I think I get that from my mom, she is constantly on the go and rarely ever sits down except for a bit at night to sip on a beer.
Alas, I drove back from the boyfriend's tonight and just got home about an hour and a half ago and I have to go into work at 7am tomorrow (Here is what I mean by 'traveling circus'). I am lucky enough to get off at 12:30, but I made plans with a friend to meet up at 1:30 to go on a thrift and photo adventure...I think I could have totally avoided working at 7am but sometimes you just gotta let 'the man' make decisions for you.
Happy New Year!!!
