A world of good

This weekend was packed with fun, like an impromptu snowball fight, a gigantic game of Catch Phrase, a DIY afternoon and celebrating the Chinese new year with takeout and Kung Fu Panda 2. Currently, we haven’t yet begun the spring semester, and I’m done with my main J-term class, which leaves plenty of time for relaxing and preparing for the upcoming semester — just the way my senior J-term should be. Here’s the breakdown:

Jacket: Ann Taylor LOFT
Thermal: Gap
Dress (worn as skirt): H&M
Tights: Kohl’s
Booties: Elder Beerman
Bag: Target
Watch: Garage sale
Bracelets: DIY

I can’t imagine an outfit that is more me. I think if I could have a close full of stripes, leopard and army-inspired pieces, I could do a world of good. This outfit also gave me the ideal canvas to wear some of my new DIY bracelets. The instructions for the ones I currently have on my wrist are here, here and here; I would highly suggest making them!
