Rainy Day Brights.

     Sweater: Izod || Jeans: American Eagle Outfitters || Vest: L.L. Bean || Jacket: Izod || Boots: {Local store in Maine} || Headband: Glitter {local NC accessories store} || Earrings: Talbots || Necklace: J. Crew Factory || Umbrella: G.H. Bass and Co || Lips: Revlon Lip Butter in Lollipop 

      This was my first day of school outfit for this brand new semester! It was a chilly and rainy day on the Monday that classes began, but I didn't want to let the dreary weather bring down my spirits (or fashion choices!). 

     I am wearing several items in this outfit that were either Christmas gifts this year or last year! My sweater, jacket and necklace were all gifts from my mom this year, and I received my umbrella and vest last year (as gifts for my trip to the UK!). My mom knows that in the past couple years I have gotten really into wearing plums, fuschias and berry tones, so I have loved recieving new additions to my wardrobe in these colors! And of course I am still obsessed with my J. Crew Factory pearl necklace- I have worn it so many times in the few weeks that I have had it!!

     My latest Netflix obsession is Gossip Girl... I know, I know, I am way late on the trend on that one! But I am enjoying it nonetheless! :-) I am midway through the second season right now, and like many other fans of the show, my favorite aspect of Gossip Girl is probably the fashions of all of the show's leading ladies! I have found myself wanting to pull out more of my favorite headbands and bows lately, and that always makes me think of Blair Waldorf. Speaking of Gossip Girl- I'm actually particpating this coming Monday in a Gossip Girl themed style link-up here on the blog! I can't wait for y'all to see more about that next week.

    More exciting blog news- I have a giveaway especially for my local Charlotte readers coming to the blog tomorrow!! If you're a Queens City gal then you won't want to miss this post!

  5. I love your colorful umbrella, I keep one in my backpack in case I run into rain while I'm in class and this one is perfect!
    Also, I was late to the Gossip Girl train & I fell in love with it too-I never finished it though, I need to try again!
