Cold Water Eyes


Hello there! Did you guys have a good weekend? Mine was fairly lazy, and I spent a whole lot of time reading for school (BOO!) and completing/continuing some more craft projects. On Saturday, my sister came up from the city and we took a drive to the mall. Neither of us bought anything, or even tried anything on, but we did eat at the Cheesecake Factory, and that's what counts. And that we spent time together. That counts to.

This outfit came together really easily. Most mornings lately I go through eighty different outfit combinations and leave the house unsatisfied with what I cam up with. But with this one, I just grabbed some things from my closet and they worked together. I love it when that happens.

Blouse, Sweater: Urban Outfitters (gifts), Skirt: H&M (gift), tights: Uniqlo, Shoes: Ruche





Short skirts make for weak jumps


Until tomorrow,


  1. I read that as "my minister came up and we went to the mall" and was wondering why you went to the mall with your minister? But I re-read it, and now all is cleared up. I, too, have had a lazy weekend.. and a lazy Christmas break. I go back tomorrow though. :P Ah well.

    This outfit is just lovely. I love the neutrals and then that sudden appearance of those pretty plum tights! The lace collar adds such a pretty detail, too. I'm glad that you got to spend time with your sister. Have a woooonnnderful rest of the week! <3

  2. You are so adorable. I love your style! It's so well put together without being pretentious.

  3. The tweed skirt is adorable on you. It's so chic with the flats and neutral sweater.

  4. You look lovely! I absolutely love the cheesecake factory! They have the best food. I love your new blog layout!

    Marja <3

  5. i had a really lazy weekend too! i knew there was so much to catch up on, but i just couldn't do it.

    the last picture of you jumping is so cute. i love your skirt! (as usual :P) xo

  6. You and your jumping shots...I love them!! I can never in a million years pull them off as gracefully as you do. Super sweet always know how to layer the perfect pieces and colors!

  7. I have been naughty and not commented on your blog lately, though I keep reading through google reader! And I have to say your new haircut suits you so well, you look wonderful! And it definitely goes well with your lovely and stylish outfits!

  8. I LOVE YOUR SHOES. And I love your layered sweater and blouse. The peter pan collar peeking through is too adorable. And I'm drooling over those tights! Ahh. Everyone talking about school is making me really not excited to go back ;) Two more weeks for me. Eeep.

    omg omg! I LOVE the new blog design!

    And some of my best outfits come together on a whim!
    Makes me think I should stop trying to plan them all together :]

  10. Man, I go away for a liiittle while and the blog changes. I really like the pattern as a background, but I'll admit the header seems to disappear a little. The bear rocks, hehe. (: Anyway, short skirts are so NOT made for jumping, but it has never stopped me, that's for sure.

    Oh yeah, when're you mailing me those tights? Hehe.

  11. i love the way your blog looks! also, super cut outfit. and you look so thin!

  12. Hi Nicole, I was traveling and just today received your Christmas card...had already bought your Christmas card and had stayed here at home because it did not have your address...I will send to you this week ok...shame that Christmas has passed but remains as a reminder, I loved your card thank you.. kisses rose jp

  13. Thanks for the feedback on my layout! I've been secretly wanting someone to comment on the blog header, because I was on the fence about it too. I originally wanted to do that thing where the pattern shows up in the font of the letters, like in your header, but I couldn't figure it out, so I went with this for now.

  14. LOL. Well, If I knew any fashionable ministers I might go to the mall with them? Maybe? That sucks that you have to go back to school tomorrow (today?) though!


Thank you so, so much for taking some time to comment on my blog!
