One more week (7 days!) until Christmas!
It's hard to believe it, but the holidays are creeping up on us! In 7 days, it will be Christmas and in just 3 day, I will be in New York! I cannot wait, but until then, I need to get things finished with school and life. (packing for my trip is a huge stresser right now as well as getting gifts ready and having to leave my hamster for 2 weeks =( !) With that being said, I want to remind you guys that I have a giveaway going on here that will be ending Friday night! If you want a $20 credit to Sammydress, make sure to enter =)
Now onto my outfit for today-
For my outfit, I am wearing this super comfy cardigan that I brought in my Aeropostale haul. This cardigan is super thick and keeps me warm through frigid weather. The cardigan is an off white color and has a baggy fit. It's something different than what I usually like, but I have grown to love this cardigan because of how comfortable it is to wear. It's just so perfect for lounging around in!
For my pants, I also ended up wearing a pair of jeggings that I got in my aero haul. They are my first pair of wine/purple colored jeans and I loved them as well! I've worn them a few times and I love how easily you could put a look together with them. A black top with colored jeans actually looks pretty good and is super easy to put on in the morning! The only negative thing I have to say about the jeans though is that they are becoming loose on me. I have heard that aero's pants lose their stretchyness quickly and I have to say that I am beginning to feel that with these jeans! It's sad, but I don't think that this applies to all of their jeans. The other pair of jeans (the knit leggings) that I got are still very stretchy though and I wear those even more than these!
For shoes, I chose to wear a pair of boots! We had just received our 2nd round of snow this Tuesday and even though it's a pain to clean, I love it. I honestly feel like the holidays are not complete without some snow and here it is! These boots aren't waterproof, but they are pretty thick so it takes a while before water sinks in and I love the fur inside. It keeps my feet very warm. I didn't have much time to accessorize so I ended up tossing on an infinity shaped ring before running out. =)

I'm trying to decide what to do with my blog when I am gone. I will probably leave it dormant for the 2 weeks I am gone like I usually do, but I also have a giveaway going on now. I will probably post the giveaway winner late Friday night/Saturday morning before I leave and contact them! =) Till then I have to get my presents ready for my cousins! (and I am getting slightly creative this year with them hehe, I'll show you guys when I am done with them!)
In other news, I got my first ever colaboration done with Dahliawolf.com. It's a site where people can post images of what they find inspirational and others can "love" it. From there, Dahliawolf will choose a few images and use them to create a look for that person. The person who inspired the clothing piece will also receive commission of each one sold! I have been a member of the site since their launch and have been semi active on it. A day or two ago, I received an email from someone who works there telling me that they liked one of my images and have created a piece for me!!!! I was super excited to hear this news because I have never had a clothing piece created just for me.
The top that was created is called The Mindy (Me!) Top. This top is a cute and casual crop top perfect for the summer. Even though it is winter here, I will still be rocking this crop top! It features a red piping around the bodice for a pop of color and is fully lined with a zipper on the side! As soon as I get this top, I will be proudly styling it!
Right now you can preorder my top for $28 here- http://www.dahliawolf.com/shop/344 It's 30% off though I don't know when that will end so if you guys like the top, you should check it out =)
