home for christmas

Wow. Just wow. This may actually be the worst I've ever done at blogging - barring the whole broken foot fiasco last semester that is (fiasco is a nice word for it, doesn't even begin to cover all the issues...). Point is, it's been over a week since I last posted, and I looked so cute this past week! I mean, it was finals week, but I was a very well-dressed college student in finals, if I do say so myself. These are pictures from yesterday, my first full day back at home! 
topshop necklace
Dad's old sweater
gap jeans
minnetonka moccasins

 Another sweater stolen from dad! Well, this one was already stolen by mom, who gave it to me when I was rummaging around in her closet for a cardigan (its' cotton, so she knew it would be perfect). And surprisingly, it's really not too light for the weather we've been having lately - as in, there's no snow. As in, no white Christmas for Alison? I'm kind of in shock. Why else do I live in Minnesota?

The puppies wanted to join in the photo shoot - we have Tilly, our old labradoodle to the left, and Sophie, my aunt's little dog (can't remember what she is again?) on the right.  Look how fluffy she is! Basically her winter coat makes her look ridiculously chubby, and I love it.

Now that I'm home from finals, it finally seems like the Christmas season! As evidenced by the little gingerbread man I've so awkwardly posed with? It's been really lovely to be home. Yesterday, Natalie and Mckenna and I went out and about for a little vintage shopping, and I found some adorable new pieces! Will probably make an entire outfit around them for tomorrow, so clearly I can't wait to show them off... Now I need to go make myself some breakfast before yoga, hope you are all having a lovely week!


  1. Isn't so great going home for Christmas, sleeping in your own bed, eating home cooked meals! I'm so glad you're home for Christmas, hope it's a good one!

  2. Happy Christmas !
