Hitting 3 Birdies with 1 post

so i am far behind on posts, as mentioned in my last post.
So i am doing a mega christmas post.

a white cardigan is SO basic! EVERY gal needs one!
This one is at H&M and i worked it into an adorable holiday outfit for your inspiration:

I think that the plainness of this outfit is what makes it nicer. The gold adds a sort of luxury as well as the satin sheen of the dress. And all of the interesting details like the empty diamond ring add a whimsy and vintage feel. and the cardigan makes it better for a dinner or a family gathering because your shoulders would be covered. I think it's perfect for a more formal christmas event.

Now for MY clothes doing the same thing!!!
Today, I wore this, and i would also wear it to a more formal gathering.

Dress: Forever 21, Tights: Target, Belt: American Eagle, Pins: J.C. Penny, Bracelet: Claire's, Earrings: Vintage, Shoes: Target, Hat: Disney World!
i generally use this dress for more dressy occasions, but for the last day before break, i thought it would look cute and festive with some red tights and used this  minnie mouse hat for inspiration!! add a matching red belt, some black flats, a cute bangle and festive earrings and cool buttons and i think that the outfit is complete!!

Look number 2 is for a family gift exchange or something like that

Disney tee, Aeropostale Shirt, Lucky Brand Jeans, Converse Sneakers, NY&Co bracelet, Target Earrings
Another disney theme here...what's with that? O well, i  think that disney is super cute and i actually spent one of my christmases there when i was younger which was one of the best christmases was magical, if you'll believe it. I suggest it with all my might.
Anywho, this tee is super fun and it's just boyish enough, but still preppy and very innocent, perfect for a family gathering or gift exchange!...also my look on wednesday.

The last look is great for a party with friends!!
check out my outfit from thursday:

Shirt: Old Navy, Tank: American Eagle, Belt: Old Navy, Jeans: Also Lucky Brand, Shoes: Thrifted, Ring: Vintage, Necklace: custom-made
this last one has nothing disney related...promise
i love this plaid...i love just wearing it, but when i got it and saw that it had red and green, i could not wait to bring out the green and wear it for christmas. Add a thermal shirt some jeans, minimal jewels, and schoolish oxfords. Turns out, i lost the ring during gym...dropped it into the locked locker below mine by accident so i suppose ill have to look for it after break :(

Anyways, happy holidays for now
i will post whenever i can, but if i dont show up, blame the holidays!!

Words, Words, More words, and a Pircture

11 random facts:
1) i do irish dance WITH trendy tips from polished...blowin your mind right here!!
2) i have an obsession with South Carolina...namely Charleston...and piggly wiggly (a grocery store..)
3) over break im going to see the hobbit and les miserables...the 2 that im DYING to see!!
4) i already own and have seen like 5 episodes of downton abbey season 3...and its not available in the U.S yet...wowsa!
5) i had my wishlist for christmas done and sent out probably a bit before thanksgiving
6) i just got a pintrest (see the button below), but dont have a facebook, twitter, or tumblr
7) homework will be the death of me
8) my least favorite color is tan
9) i need to replace 3 tubes of mascara...especially after reading that chemicals in mascara can turn into formaldehyde after 3 months
10) i tried to do nanowrimo...i got about 3,000 words...yup
11) i am inconsistent in planning outfits, but will do them a week in advance if im lucky 

this was another thing that i had to do for the leibster but forgot! so here! 

anyways, i apologize for being absent, but in this holiday season, busy-ness is unavoidable and the intensity of it builds up and up until christmas, when it finally sort of ends and you can relax. So for now, excitement and a full schedule await me
5 days to go!!
So tomorrow night (friday night), i will be doing a christmas post involving a mini what to wear, an inspiration, and 3 outfits from this week. im hitting 3 birds with one stone!!!

Anyways if we're still here tomorrow...end of the world anyone? i personally don't think it's true, but as a joke, i set it up as an event on the ipad and there you go!!
for the past week, i've been getting push notifications...

And lastly, like many other bloggers, i would like to pay tribute to the connecticut shooting. i cannot even fathom how something like that could even happen...the man must have been seriously mentally ill to kill children.

and speaking of shootings, someone has threatened to "shoot it up" at my school on friday. Again, i doubt it, but it just bugs me that someone would threaten that right after such a tragedy as our new england friends suffered...

So because of my posting lag, here is a photo and just remember that my big holiday posts are coming soon!!

this lightbulb sort of represents hope. We need to put this hope and light back into the families' lives that lost their young children right before christmas.
