Hey Guys!

I'm taking a little break from blogging until I finish my thesis - it's due in a few weeks and I'm about 10 pages to the end!

In the meantime, I'm super excited to have been invited to Lookbook... check me out!

More Relaxing

So, okay, I know I just wore this t-shirt the other day, but I have SERIOUSLY been freaking out lately, so it's only appropriate. Like... I went to visit a friend the other night & I'm pretty sure I totally wigged him out because I was so twitchy...

Anyway, today I had a meeting with one of my professors about the orchestra piece I've been working on for a class project, and then a piano lesson. I didn't sleep a whole lot last night, so I just kind of threw on the first few things I could find. You can tell by my hair that I've been a little disheveled all day. Also totally love my Barbie mug.

Mixing Patterns

I've been admiring the way some of my favorite bloggers mix patterns. As a novice, I wanted to start mixing slowly. I've been REALLY loving these tights lately... I think I posted them a few days ago, but since I picked this skirt up at Target, I've been wanting to pair the two together. To keep the ensemble less busy but still work on the pattern mixing, I added this white T with very subtle grey stripes.

I really love the way this turned out!

plus, secret pockets!! I love skirt pockets...

Nail Experiment

I had a really awful afternoon - I totally blanked out on a French exam and I'm pretty sure I did NOT do well. My stress-reliever? Baking. I made a whole bunch of zucchini bread, some with chocolate chips & some without... It's SO GOOD but I'm trying to give it away now - I really don't need this much zucchini bread...

I also decided to try something new on my nails. I always have to have polish on them since I used to bite them like nobody's business, but I always try to mix it up a little.

The left hand looks fantastic since I have a really steady right hand, but I still have a little bit of a tremor in my left hand so the right nails are less professional looking. Not a complete mess, but just not as even... Still contemplating whether or not it just looks like I have a lot of dirt under my nails...

what do you think?

nail polish: Sinful Colors in 'What's Your Name" - black with green sparkles

I love this brand because it's only $1 a bottle and my drugstore stocks about 40 different colors... whenever I need a pick-me-up, I grab a new bottle!
