It’s the final stretch!  Two final papers handed in and just three final exams to take and my first semester of senior year is OVER!  What the heck?  Where did time go?  It feels like yesterday I was the timid freshman on campus and now I am a big shot senior.  Putting all that aside, I decided to put down my philosophy notes for a bit and write a new post for you all.          So for today’s post I am switching things up a little bit and first going to talk about my infamous Charming Charlie Good Vibes necklace that has made many appearances on my blog.  In fact, this is one of my favorite necklaces so I had to dedicate the title of this blog post to the influential message behind the necklace.  The saying “Good Vibes” has been my motto for this past week, especially when I have been bombarded with exams and assignments, but it also has become my motto throughout this semester and continuing onto the next.  I am a big believer that your attitude determines your experiences, so I am making sure I spread those good vibes throughout my last year of college to…

Usually the expression is “Flannel Friday”, but I could not wait until Friday to upload this style post. It seems like time is flying by.  Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday came and went and now the holiday season is in full force.  Although this is suppose to be a joyful time, for us college students it is such a stressful time filled with final papers and finals exams, but I am trying my best to plan some fun Holiday posts (suggestions are much appreciated). Today’s outfit features my favorite flannel, lots of layers, and booties, which is the recipe for a perfect fall/winter outfit.  My oversized flannel shirt from Madewell is the perfect piece to have in your wardrobe this season.  The perfect plaid pattern and the oversized fit makes this flannel the best for layering. Speaking of layering, we have now entered the season (well at least on the East Coast) where you can’t go outside just wearing your favorite blouse.  In order to prevent freezing your butt off, one must layer, and I mean lots of layering.  My shearling vest not only keeps me cozy and warm, but this vest from Apricot Lane earned major style points especially…
