Morning Dreams

December 5, 2011

Club Monaco clutch, gloves, coat & skirt,
H&M shirt, belt, necklace & booties

If this past weekend was a little peek of what’s to come my last day of classes today, then I’m ecstatic. With no homework to worry about, I got a chance to actually do fun things. I spent the weekend hanging out with my journo friends for our term-end party, cutting down and decorating Christmas trees with my family, eating cookies and catching up with blogger friends, running with Matt and generally just enjoying life. Such a nice change from staring at my computer screen in the newsroom for 10 hours a day!

Check out ma baaaaaaaaaaangs in action! I swung a lot from love to hate immediately after getting them, but now I’ve settled on love. It’s just made getting ready in the morning more exciting and given me more options.

Hope all of you lovelies had a great weekend! To Vogue or Bust

    I don't know what I am freaking out more over — your jacket or your clutch. Screw it. I love both. Equally. And I want it all. Let's trade closets for a day, okay?

    This is such an impeccably classic ensemble, Alex- stripes and a trench, plus those fabulous bangs (yes, I'm jealous)… What's not to love? So glad to hear that you're finally going to be getting a break from your school craziness. It was great to catch up on Saturday, so sad you couldn't stay longer (to see me massacre your toffee shortbread; they were so good! Where is this Welsh Bakery, I need to go? Like, now. I'm having cravings.) Looking forward to more catch up on Wednesday!

    The third thing that you have to remember is the assessment. Well there are significantly three sorts of appraisals i.e. the coupling gauge, the non-tying gauge and the non-tying and non surpassing assessment.
