First Snow of the Year

These photos were taken on Thanksgiving, following the first big snow of the year at home. Not sure I’m quite ready for snow or winter yet, but styling adorable outfits like this one does make the cold weather a little more bearable.

Wearing: J.Crew Factory shirt (limited sizes in this color) | J.Crew vest (old, similar here) | J.Crew Factory skirt (similar here) | Target tights (lots of color options here) | Nordstrom boots (similar here) | Lilly Pulitzer necklace (love this J.Crew pearl necklace)
I can’t believe we are officially in the holiday season now! I’m in the home stretch of the semester now. Exams, papers, and then finals next week! And then after that, ONE SEMESTER LEFT!!! Holy guacamole. I apologize if posts are a little light for the next two weeks. I plan to blog when I need study breaks though, so I’ll definitely still be around. 🙂 
Good luck to everyone who is staying busy and preparing for finals! I hope you get the chance to take a break and enjoy the holiday season as well. I’ll be looking forward to several viewings of Elf and loading up on holiday cookies.

    I feel like snow season came a little early for everyone this year! But it makes for the best photos. I've been lusting after that vest but trying to fight urges because I've accumulated wayyy too many vests this year!! 🙂
