Bouncing Back

  Yay for November and for switching out clocks back an hour! Daylight savings ended today which means we get an extra hour today! (and I am so thankful for it because I have yet to start any of my work because of the SAT's yesterday!!) Although.. I don't think I made the best use of my extra hour. I actually stayed up pretty late last night so I woke up ~30 min. later than usual this morning. I also went on a super easy 1.5 mile jog this morning. The run plus me waking up late made my extra hour go poof. Oops, well sleeping in felt very nice!!
I have been enjoying the fall weather a lot! It does get freezing cold in the morning when I wait for my bus (at like 6:40) but by the afternoon, the weather is cool and comfortable.
My outfits have been getting a lot warmer as well. For the colder days, I usually wear what I normally do and throw a warm jacket over to keep me from freezing outside. For my outfit today, I wore a cute little gray sweater-

Time To Study Sweater

This sweater is really soft and cozy. The material to this sweater is thicker than your average sweater, but not so thick that it could keep you warm on a chilly day. It's one of those sweaters that you can pop over your head and be set with. No buttons or zippers to deal with making it perfect for a school morning! Underneath my sweater, I chose to wear a black long sleeved shirt. Sadly, it's too cold to bearing short sleeves outside! 

Fall Sweater
I had to try the monkey bars!! (sadly I couldn't do it..) 
Bow Belt

When I ordered this sweater, I didn't expect for it to come with this belt. Of course the model was wearing a belt with it, but I had assumed it was one of those "belt not included" things. Turns out, the belt is included and it is a really cute one as well. The belt is not your typical belt. It's a deep brown color and in the front, it is tied into a lovely bow shape. I think the bow is quite unique! Even the way the belt closes is nice! Instead of your traditional belt, this one has a button that just "pops" in and out of each hole.

Forever 21 Jewelry

For my jewelry, I my set of bangles and a silver ring. I got the bangles from my friend in my buddy box and I love them so much. I have literally worn the bangles at least once a week since I've received them! I think gold colored jewelry is perfect for fall. Something about the gold bracelets against the yellow/orange/red leaves is really relaxing to me! I chose to take my pictures today at a local "abandoned" (because no one goes there anymore) playground. There was a tree around there that was just stunning. I snapped a few photos of it the tree and its beautiful leaves!

Fall OutfitIn other news, my cousin and her kids are planning to visit us!! You probably know that I love my cousin and I am always excited to see her and her kids! (So excited to see the kids.. they get bigger each time!). Her husband is also going to be helping me with college picking. It is pretty late for me not to have solidified my colleges. I originally did have my colleges picked out but my SAT score had gone up significantly from when I was picking the colleges. I know scores aren't everything, but a lot of my colleges (6 out of 8) have turned into safety schools and that isn't good according to my guidance counselor. So now I must figure out colleges again, but the vast amount of choices I have in front of me is quite overwhelming and there is just so much to consider from price to size to location. My brain is bursting so thank gosh my he is going to help match me out. He knows quite a bit about me and my strengths, preferences and he knows a lot about colleges in NY. so I know I'll trust his choices. Yay!!

What is your favorite thing about fall? 
Have you ever seen a "bow belt" before?
