I'm Going Back to Basics


I loved wearing this outfit; there's nothing like putting together a bunch of basic pieces and being comfortable all day in sneakers. The weather just happened to be lovely as well so I didn't need a jacket. Unfortunately the pleasant weather isn't here to stay and the freezing wind will be back in no time. It's actually supposed to snow tonight and all day Saturday! And due to that snow.....the winter formal I was supposed to drive down south for is postponed. I had my outfit ready and everything :( Those southern new jerseyans can't handle the snow...grrr).


I just wanted to say a quick shout-out to the adorable and beautiful Jasmine for being the First Place Winner of the Chictopia10 Conference! She's one of my all time favorite bloggers and I think you all need to check her out. I can't think of anyone more deserving and she's one of the sweetest people I know. Congratulations, Jasmine! (We're stealing you over to the east coast temporarily!) I'm so envious! I could actually hop on a train for an hour and attend but I'm trying to save up my money. Maybe I can sneak in without a ticket :P
