Good Girl

I love this dress I found at Savers- I think the fit is very flattering plus it’s black, so it will go with everything!  I think this is a very ‘sweet’ outfit, so I wore it to go to lunch with my mom and my godmother.

cardigan, tights, necklace- forever 21, dress- thrifted (Savers), shoes- Target

For some reason, I’m having trouble getting my Christmas gifts together this year.  I can’t figure out what I want to get everyone and the funds are really limited this year.  I’m definitely making some of my gifts, but I am planning to buy some and I want them to be special, of course.  I’m going to go to the store in a bit and hopefully I’ll come across something that I just love!  Also, I really wanted to give gifts to my friends back at school (something cute and creative), but I was just too busy with finals and didn’t get a chance.  Hopefully next year, I’ll get my act together and start all that way in advance!  Also, I’m thinking that by next year, I’ll probably have to have a ‘Christmas Card List’ because maybe I won’t be living close enough to just hand-deliver all of my cards.  That feels like such an adult thing to have, a ‘Christmas Card List’!  Do any of you guys have one?  Also, one year I’d really like to try and make my cards by hand!  Aaah, too much future talk- Christmas hasn’t even come yet this year and I’m getting ahead of myself!

Also, I just cannot get enough of this song- I’ve been listening to it on repeat for days! What do you think?

Thanks to all those who have entered my giveaway and you can still do so here if you haven’t already! =)

    I don't have a Christmas card list yet, but I'm kind of excited to have one some day. I love giving out Christmas cards. Good luck on your gift-buying quest!

    Very sweet indeed :) love the color of those tights! So rich and wintery! And I've been kind of struggling to figure out what to get people, too. Nothing seems obvious the way it usually does somehow.

    I love Adele. I saw her in Topshop in London a few years ago and was conflicted about whether on not to say hi. Decided not to in the end – who wants a stranger harassing them when their out shopping!
