Winter Blues (and Pale Pinks and Greens)

images via tumblr and fp blog

As the weather finally dips beneath 75 degrees here in LA, it's been a little easier to imagine wearing sweaters and sipping my favorite seasonal Starbucks drinks (which, if you were wondering, are peppermint mochas and creme brulee lattes). 

Rather surprisingly however I haven't been craving fair isle prints and chunky knits typical of the season; instead, I've been very inspired by frosty pinks and pale greens. I realize that these colors are much more reminiscent of late February than of early November, but I guess I'm just thinking ahead. 

There's a kind of magical quality in the above photos that reminds me why I love winter so much.

1. My eyesight is not that bad, but I wear my glasses often because they're cute.

2. When I bring my computer to class, it's not because I'm being a good student but because I want to do some online shopping.

3. If I don't see anybody important when I'm wearing a cute outfit, I'll probably wear it again within the week. 

4. A fault of working in retail: many of my paychecks go straight back to my employer.

5. Sometimes when I'm wearing an outfit that I'm not 100% sure about, I will return to my dorm midday and change. 

6. Any reflective surface can and will be used as a mirror.

7. Nothing feels as good as wearing a twirly dress on a sunny day.

8. Coffee is also an accessory.

9. I am guilty of buying clothes and then not wearing them.

10. Fashion has given me more confidence about myself than anything else could have.

Today, I made this list (and figured out how to scan and Photoshop this sketch).

Today, I did not do my statistics homework.

This still counts as being productive, right?

Cheers to Monday!
