A Dose of Winter Layers

This term has felt like such a roller coaster. One day I have no idea where all the time has gone. The next day I can’t believe it’s only week seven and I wish time was moving a little faster. I’m trying to enjoy things as they are, but I’m just starting to feel anxious to get my life moving along. It’s starting to sink in that I have about a year left before I finish school and there’s a lot I want to accomplish before then. At the same time, I feel like I’ve just hit the ground running since the beginning of the year. Suffice to say, this blog has suffered a little bit. I do have lots of plans for fun blog posts in the next few weeks though so things should be picking up a bit around here!

These photos were taken during the massive snowstorm Portland was hit with over my birthday weekend. I definitely was not planning for snow when I packed to go home for the weekend and so I ended up digging into what’s left of my closet at home for extra layers. This actually worked out in my favor because I was forced to try new things, such as layering a turtleneck under a summer dress. I’ve seen this look all over the runways and the blogosphere in recent months, but my hatred of turtlenecks that has persisted from my elementary school years kept me from trying it out. After giving it a shot, I can actually say that I look forward to wearing more turtlenecks! This is such an easy cozy look that’s a little more unique than your typical winter layers.
