cropped in mauve


I CAN'T BELIEVE my holiday's are over! It's back to school  and this is my very first post of 2013. I hope you all had an amazing Christmas and New Years, spending as much time as possible with loved ones. I had a two-week visit from a special someone and happily spent most of every day by his side. I threw on this outfit for my class yesterday, trying out a cute mauve cropped sweater from Covet clothing layered over my repeat favourite, the leopard-print blouse (seen here and here recently). 

As nerdy as I may sound, I'm excited to get back into school. I only have 8 more months left of my undergrad degree and I'm panicing that I won't have enough time to soak up all that my university has to offer. Maybe a masters degree is in my future? We'll see. For now, Happy Thursday!

Thanks to my girl Steph for the photos!
