lookbooks and wishful thinking

I've been so extremely busy with school lately - writing papers, creating presentations and just stressing overall about finals in a couple weeks - that I've been feeling a little lacking in the inspiration department. I know I just did a big winter post full of lovely pictures, but here's another just to wet your appetite about the cozy winter fashions that are pouring out of stores and into our closets in preparation for the chilly weather. I've been lusting over boots, coats, scarves, sweaters, leggings, and all of that for so long now, and I just love the way all of these lookbooks artfully style the winter trends to perfection. My last class is on Monday, and I'm planning to hit downtown for some Christmas shopping afterwads - and maybe pick up a little something special for myself to make me smile before finals drown me in cups of tea and lack of sleep. So good luck to all those students out there writing notes and frantically trying to study while prepping for the holidays and maintaining a relatively busy social life. I know how it feels - and trust me, retail therapy (and blog-reading-therapy) never fails!
