So, it seems that summer decided to have one last hurrah before letting autumn take over. It was kind of funny. I've been dressing overly warm since September began, but today I dressed weather-correct, while my whole campus was consumed with jackets, sweaters, and boots. Instead, I vouched for my new skirt, since the color was just so bright, and a floral top.

Skirt: American Apparel, Top: Delia's, Sandals: Steve Madden

This week's been rough. School's kind of suddenly picked up, and I'm scrambling to get grounded again. I've got a paper due next week on the Iliad, and I'm at a total loss. Like, nearly frightened at a loss. I know I'll get something done, but the class is just so intense and frankly, I've been feeling like a bit of an incompetent idiot. And today, I had my first poetry critique and it didn't go so well. It's not so much fun to have confidence in something and hear people tell you completely valid reasons as to why what you've written isn't as good as you thought. But I suppose that's the critique process. Blah!

Sorry I'm updating a bit late tonight. I've been a bit swamped with work tonight. I hope you're all doing well, and being happy!

Until tomorrow,
Nicole :)


  1. Ah! Nicole, you're so cute. I wish I was as smart as you when it comes to dressing for the weather. I ended up bundling up in jeans and a heavy sweatshirt. By the end of the day, I was dying!

    I love the skirt and the floral. That skirt is such a gorgeous color.

  2. you are sooo darling.<3

  3. If I could update my blog every day.. that's a crazy thought. I am impressed by your skills, my friend. :) I love the color of your skirt (you have so many amazing skirts, I've realized!) and you look so pretty! <3

    Aweeee.. I know what you mean about critiques. Sometimes though it's just their point of view, so don't get too down!~ what I really hate is when you say something but can't put it into words well, and then someone else phrases it better and you're like "duh, why didn't I just say that?" Happens to me all the time. ;)

  11. I found your blog just some minutes ago and cross read it and I've to say I love your skirts and dresses and your blousons. Your style is so cute but also indie and that's perfect. And I can refer to that future fears and critiques..It happened to me to and now I'm a law student in my sophomore year. I was really desperate at the beginning but now it works :) I'm sure you'll grow on your problems and get better and better so you'll get fantastic critiques!!!!
