What I'm Wearing

Today was my second-first days of classes of the new semester and as every fashionista, I wanted to make a good impression. I wore this outfit a navy and white striped dress from Forever21 with grey sweater tights, camel riding boots, and of course my navy blazer from Culver. I swear I wear this blazer more post-Culver than while I was actually at Culver. This was an outfit inspired and adapted from Pintrest, which I am completely obsessed with. Since it was fairly chilly today I put a oatmeal colored cashmere cardigan under the blazer and wore my oatmeal colored infinity scarf in between classes.

Speaking of which, today I had Brand Management and Environmental Technology. I had the luxury of sleeping in until my first class at 1:40 and it was amazing. I'm really interested in Brand Management and my professor seems very interesting and experienced. In fact, he founded my favorite running shoe company (Saucony). Those of you who have been reading this blog from the start might remember that Dan, my exbf, had an internship at Collective Brands which now owns Saucony. And through him I bought the shoes and they're awesome. They almost make running enjoyable. Almost. I had Environmental Tech right after and it seemed like it was a high school science class. We had to fill out index cards about ourselves and was highly dictated. It will certainly be interesting. At least it's my last science class while at Babson!

So far my classes seem promising. I'm excited to see how this semester turns out, I think it will be great. :)

Possible Pooch?

In November, my family lost our very loved dog to cancer.

Now Scooter is an only dog and is a little nutty. Our family is considering adopting another rescued pitbull because so many need a good home. We've been casually looking online and went to the humane society last week and found Posey. She was as cute as could be and all white. Yesterday, we took Scooter over to visit and see how he did with her. This results were less than ideal. But while we were there, we looked at another female pitty named Lena. She was mostly white with black freckles and a brindle-colored butt. She was adorable. She and Scooter got along pretty well and she was very low-key and attention-whore-ish which goes along with our family. On Thursday we are going back to the humane society to look at Lena again and see if Scooter is still okay. Hopefully we will be able to take her home for a "trial weekend" which we did with Sadie (she never went back). My parents are unsure if they want to take her this weekend, but it's my last weekend home and I'm another body to help out with the assimilation. Plus Scooter is my dog and will most likely fall into a slight depression when I leave (who else will let him sleep on the bed all day and make him sunny-side up eggs for breakfast every morning?). So I am pulling for this weekend. Below are some pictures of Sadie, Posey, and Lena. What do you think?

Layered Bracelet Trend

I'm really loving the new layered bracelet trend.  I found a bunch of cool antique bracelets from my Grandmother when I came home for winter break and they're absolutely perfect for layering!  I anchored the look with a large watch to keep all the bracelets from sliding around too much.

What do you think?
