I'm Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas

So, yesterday is what I like to call a crummy day. It was the first super dooper cold day of the season, so I wimped out, whipped out the big sweaters, and didn't take pictures. Also, I got some upsetting news about my class and just had lame things to deal with. But that was yesterday, and it's over. I'm trying to remember the person who I am and who I really want to be, and I'm trying to focus on who and what I really care about the most. It's easy to get down and instantly forget how much good you really have in your life. So today I've been trying to enjoy myself as much as possible, smiling, reading, sharing company, listening to Fleet Foxes and of course, dressing in a Christmas themed way!

Okay, so this outfit isn't too Christmassy I'll admit it. But my skirt is a Christmas red and my shirt is white (so, candy cane) and to top it off (literally?) I tied a bow around my head, so now I'm like a present. Hooray! I originally wanted to wear my green cardigan ONLY BECAUSE it's super warm, but I held myself back. At least now I know what I'll be wearing on Christmas eve! I'm just so excited about Christmas. Look forward to the holiday season has been keeping me sane and helping me stay motivated to get all my work done. Tonight I'll be baking cookies for one of my classes, and then I'm looking forwards to one of my favorite Christmas activities over the weekend: Christmas cards! I so love writing Christmas cards to people I care about. I think it's such a nice opportunity to remind people how much they mean to you. If any of you want to swap Christmas cards, I would love to do that! Just message me :)
