Hooray for the poncho trend, which comes in handy for those crisp, fall mornings when you just feel like showing up to class wrapped in a warm comfy blanket. A poncho is basically a warm piece of fabric that drapes across your body. It’s hard to find something more comfy, cozy, and stylish than a poncho. It’s so easy to style your poncho with jeans or leggings, a simple long-sleeve shirt, boots, and minimal jewelry. You’ll look like you’re walking down the runway, when in reality you did not want to leave your bed that morning. The poncho featured in today’s post is from Forever 21. I love the tribal design and all the deep red, orange, gray, and navy shades. This poncho features all the colors of fall, making it a great piece to wear for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. If you are looking for a poncho to wear for Thanksgiving, try Forever 21. They have a huge variety of colors and designs. The best thing about ponchos is the loose fit, so go ahead indulge in that extra slice of pumpkin pie. Since my poncho flows over most of my body, I decided to wear a basic black…

Daylight saving time has really hit me hard. And, in case you didn’t know it is “saving” not “savings.” It’s been a week and I still can’t get used to the time change. Walking back from class at five o’clock and it is pitch black outside really makes me long for spring. Plus, by like seven o’clock I am so ready for bed. I guess this only means one thing…the winter is coming! It was such a beautiful day so I could not let the day pass without going outside to take a few photos. Sadly, I had class until late afternoon so I rushed home to make sure I had time to snap some photos before the sun went down. The sun was just setting, hence the darker look and random orange spots on my head. I always like to look nice for class. Although, most people probably do not notice, I feel more confident and energized when I am “dressed up.” Don’t get me wrong, sweat pants are so comfortable but I do not think they are appropriate for class, no matter how many times you have pressed that snooze button. After classes is another story, that is…

Nothing is better than escaping college life by getting in the car, going off campus, and doing some shopping, even if it is by yourself. A few days ago I found out that retail therapy does exist. I was feeling a little down, and decided to pick myself up with something I love to do and that something is shopping. I was pretty bummed that nobody was around to go on a shopping trip with me, but what I found is that a little me time is just what I needed to overcome my blues. On another note, it has been such a warm fall in New England. I am so scared that by pointing this out, I’ll jinx the weather and tomorrow there will be a snow storm. But, I am enjoying this “Indian Summer” because I get to wear a typical fall outfit, jeans, sweater, and boots without shivering. Like I always say fall fashion is the best fashion. Today’s outfit features two new pieces from my latest shopping trip. I like to call the “sweater” I am wearing, a scarf with sleeves. Just imagine your favorite scarf with sleeves draped over your body. I found this unique…
