Here are some mediocre iPhone pictures of life lately. Which I have to say has been pretty awesome. I have been slacking on the blog posts lately but I have a good excuse. I have been the process of moving into an apartment I love (and I can’t remember where I packed my camera at the moment (hence the iPhone pictures)). Last weekend was entirely consumed with moving activities so I am really looking forward to the upcoming one and its a long weekend at that! I have to say though this is by far the best kind of moving.

An Empty Room (which is no longer empty):
A Pretty New Dress:
Besides moving I have been wedding planning, online shopping for apartment furnishings, job hunting, going for walks, watching Boardwalk Empire and Big Bang Theory, and reading books and blogs, oh and eating lots of awesome pizza.
I love this dress. Everything about it is so perfect. The cut, the color, the beading, the sleeves. Its a bit big on me but I don’t even care because it is so amazing. Plus it makes it super comfortable.
I wore this dress last weekend out to dinner with my fiancé. We went to On the Border – one of our favorites. Does any one else adore On the Border? I think they have the most amazing chips and salsa. Plus they have this red onion and avocado enchilada which is to die for. Anyway now that I have gotten myself hungry for Mexican food, onto the outfit photos.

I have an outfit post!! I am kind of sad that they are few and far between lately because I really like doing them, but I’ll take what I can get.
I wore this outfit on Saturday, i.e. the first true snow of the winter! I wore it hanging around my apartment all day and then to dinner with my friends later in the night. I think the entire outfit is made up of new items from Christmas presents. I really love wearing a bunch of new clothes at once. It makes an outfit feel extra special – does anyone else feel that way.

I have been settling into the semester so my posts have been few and far between, but I think I am getting my schedule down now so post should pick back up.
See you tomorrow with a Wonderful Wednesday post!
I am going wedding dress shopping today (insert girlish squeal here)!!!!!!!!!

I have some more outfit photos!! These are from a while ago. I can’t remember exactly when. They were at some point before finals, but everything in the past 2 weeks is pretty much just a blur of studying and Christmas preparation.
This outfit is a little out there, but I like it anyway. I have really been enjoying wearing my hair in a top knot lately. If I wear my hair in a traditional bun, I kind of look like I have no hair in photos, so you know this fixes that.
Anyway here are the pictures:

I know that I am supposed to love wrap dresses. I know that they are supposed to look great on every body type and be the best type of dress. However I really have a strong dislike for wrap dresses. This is the only wrap dress I own and I only like it because of its bright color and pretty scarf belt. Maybe its because I am 5’2″ or maybe I am some kind of ill-proportioned freak of nature, but wrap dresses never fit me right. The top is always to low, the waist never hits my natural waist, and don’t even get me started on the fact that a gust of wind can completely unravel a wrap dress.
Moving on from my rant…This is what I wore on Wednesday, and despite my rambling it really is a cute little dress. The scarf is perfect for me because you don’t have to tie it in a bow. I am completely inept at tying pretty little bows. They are always floppy, lopsided and twisted. However this particular belt was made to be tied in this kind of drapey knot (or at least that is how the dress came and I am sticking to my story that a bow is not necessary).

I wore this outfit on Saturday to lunch with my boyfriend at On the Border. His lunch must have been really yummy because he agreed to take outfit photos outside for me!
I want this dress in every color. I don’t really like it by its self, but I love it as a layering piece. In the fall its perfect with tights and a plaid button down. In the summer its perfect for tank tops I am otherwise at a loss of how to wear.
