The New and the Old

Well, as what happens every year, Christmas has come and Christmas has passed. There's not much to it but time. I feel selfish saying that I want more of it, time that is, but what can I do. I woke up at 9:30 this morning, brushed my teeth, washed my face, and started working on my history project by 10. Somewhere in between then and now, 12:21 am, I finished by project without even noticing the hours flying by. I can still smell the toothpaste on my breath and the Dove soap on my face. Time's a bugger. Well, anyways, enough of my melancholy ranting and onto the simple pleasures of clothes...










The New: Jean vest from Payhalf (woohoo bargain!), Urban Outfitters dress--Christmas present from my friend, vintage booties, target stockings.

I didn't think this outfit would work when I put it on on one of those cold and tired mornings where it seems as though the heater's only purpose is to make hissing noises and your hair is plotting against you, but to my watch's pleasure, it looked good!





The Old: Winter weather can be very harmful to your outfits. Sometimes when I look outside and see the muddy, sludgy snow piled inches deep, I feel like putting on jeans and a big pair of duck boots. The warm colored outfit I wore a week ago made me forget about the chilly weather, so to keep my mind in the sunny side of France and away from complete winter melt down, I renewed this outfit, adding my new skirt.
