Vest Obsession Strikes Again

Inspiration for basically every outfit I've worn all month, all I need in my life are more vests and sweaters:

My love of stripes and fur translates to fashion as well as kittens...
Dark denim + navy stripes + beige vests = PERFECT FALL OUTFIT.
I love the orange in this outfit as well.

Weekend at Home Purchases

It had literally felt like FOREVER since I had last gone shopping! I really shouldn't have but I can't say I'm not glad I did.

I was originally on a mission for a new comfy sweater. I had something Free People in mind but I literally couldn't find anything anywhere. I was just about to give up when I saw the Diamond Jacquard dress at Madewell. It's super heavy weight and warm so I thought it would be perfect for working at The Wellesley Holiday Boutique this winter and dinners out in England.

I was walking out when I couldn't resist going into the new Lululemon store. I've been needing a new pair of Wunder Unders since I broke the cardinal rule of yoga clothing and washed my crops AND my pants in a load with cotton towels :(((( ruined. Don't do it. Learn from my mistakes people!! So as I am trying on my new pants (apparently the new Full-On Luon material is supposed to be more resistant to pilling--fingers crossed) I needed to try on a tank top to make sure it looked alright. And then naturally I had to buy the tank top too...

All in all, successful trip, a little TOO successful probably. Except I never got a sweater... Until next weekend!

Tortellini, Spinach, and Tomato Soup

I successfully cooked again! 

I was so inspired after the Tunacados that I decided to make something else I found off the internet. Trying to figure out how to combine the random groceries I have in my apartment is becoming like a fun nightly game.

Tonight I made a garlicky, tortellini, spinach, and tomato soup. I've had the tortellini in my fridge for a while but since I never really have time to work out anymore I never feel like I deserve to indulge on pasta unless I am at Pastabilities. The soup makes the tortellinis seem a little lighter and I love anything with spinach and tomatoes. It was a little more "garlicky" than I anticipated but definitely an easy meal!

I thought I would hate living on South Campus this year. 
Namely because even though its only about a mile away from campus the bus journey can take up to a half hour. Despite that, it does have quite a few perks. I love having my own room, turning the light off when I want to, not having to wear shower shoes or carry a shower caddy, and just having more space in general. But most of all, I LOVE being able to cook for myself. 

I've always been a healthy eater and the options at the dining hall were far from satisfactory--or healthy. That being said I don't really know how to make a lot. My dinner options are pretty limited to stir-fry, stuffed peppers, and eggs. However, in my recent homework procrastination I came across tuna-stuffed avocados. 
The Tunacado, if you will. 


And literally so simple. You literally just make tuna however you usually like to eat tuna (I like it with onions and a little bit of mayonaise and a LOT of pepper) scoop out a little of the avocado, add it to the tuna, and then stuff the whole mixture back into the avocado, add salt, and eat with a spoon. Done and done. 


Happy to say I've got it all, except that whole political awareness part...

What I am Reading, Watching, Eating, and Listening...

This blog was starting to look a little too much like a playlist...

I've always had this intense fascination with Elizabeth Smart and her kidnapping. She's been so reluctant to discuss her experience for so many years (understandably) so I cannot wait to read about her story from her perspective.  

This movie is hysterical. Long story short its about a drug dealer who has to smuggle tons of weed across the border. He doesn't want to seem too suspicious so he recruits a stripper, a dork, and a homeless girl to be his fake family. Excellent.

Anything and everything pumpkin. Pumpkin muffins, bread, cupcakes, pancakes, the possibilities are endless!

Because I couldn't resist throwing my latest song obsession in a blog post...

The Beginning - John Legend

His hand gesticulations are a little ridiculous in this video, but great song--thanks to Lily for showing me!
