So I was heating up my lunch at school earlier this week and a girl I didn’t know walked up and asked, “Are you Sarah?” Turns out she’s a first-year student who got paired up with me for some help studying. How did she know who I was? “They told me you wear a lot of hats.”

Really? When did I become Hat Girl? I mean I don’t wear hats that often, do I?

On Thursday it got above freezing, and I was so excited about the sun coming out that I wore the biggest damn sunglasses I have. And look, I even let a tiny sliver of skin show above my ankles. This is progress, people.

And on Friday…it snowed 4 more inches. Wah wah.

Hope you’re all finishing up a great weekend. Sending sunny thoughts your way.

First thing’s first: Don’t forget today is the last day to enter the $25 Magnolia Boutique giveaway! So far there are 42 entries, and you have the option to enter up to 3 times! So your chances of winning are…um…cross multiply, do a permutation, multiply by 10,  solve for X, divide by Y squared. You figure it out.

Now. I know what you’re thinking. This is supposed to a blog about “real life” style. What normal person gets this gussied up just to go to the mall for some Christmas shopping? The answer is almost no one. But when I’m in the middle of finals week and I’ve spent 2 straight days in the same t-shirt and sweatpants and I’m starting to go cross-eyed from writing SIX essays for a take-home exam, I tend to go a little overboard. To make up for the 2 normal outfits I would have worn if I left the house those days, I wore 1 extra sassy one on day 3.

And I know what else you’re thinking. How am I not freezing in these flimsy little pants when it’s 18 degrees out? Never fear friends. I snuck some leggings under there. 🙂

To my fellow college/grad school/law school friends who aren’t yet done with finals: may you stay sane and warm. And may you like my blog page on Facebook. Thanks.

The Perks of a Statement Trench

I love a good statement jacket or trench. It’s a good spring layer, and it makes getting dressed easy. I can throw on jeans and a t-shirt and let the trench do the talking. Because sometimes I just don’t have that much to say. Like right now for example.

Sarah v. Mother Nature: Round 2

I thought maybe I could coax spring out of hiding if I wore my new bright pink linen skirt. Perhaps you can tell by my matching bright pink nose, but my plan did not work. It was 28 degrees. That one picture where I’m smiling is really just an attempt to hide my despair. I’m thinking about how great it will be when I’m not outside anymore and I can be happy again.

Sigh. Mother Nature wins another round.

Sarah v. Mother Nature

neonstripes1 neonstripes2 neonstripes3 neonstripes4 neonstripes5 neonstripes6

You’d think the many hours a week I spend reading and highlighting textbooks would make me avoid neon colors in the rest of my life. But no, I went right for this highlighter yellow colorblock top and wore it with bright pink lipstick. This outfit seemed perfect for a brisk yet sunny day. And it was…Until brisk and sunny turned into DARK and SNOWY.

OK, the dark part wasn’t really a surprise. But the snow is not welcome in March! It should be spring, and I am going to make it spring with my neon colors! You hear that, Mother Nature? You won this round, but I’ll be back.
