hello december!

where has the time gone?!
somehow it is already december. christmas decorations
and festivities are in full force (though i have yet to begin my holiday 
shopping), and time continues to move more and more quickly - 
without reprieve!

i am cheating slightly on the blog, as i took these pictures 
a few weeks ago; my fellow seattle friends could tell you it's now far too chilly 
to wear a light jacket and dress, sans tights.
but better late than never, am i right?
i've been adjusting to my new job (which i suppose is not so new anymore) -
i have been there just over two months. when i am not at work,
i am supposed to be studying for an exam my employer requires me to take.
however, it is a struggle, especially after a long day in the office!

with the holidays right around the corner, shopping, crafting christmas gifts
and decorations, baking cookies, and of course, spending time with family and friends 
sounds far more enticing than memorizing the different types of stock
and how // when trades are settled (which is still an enigma to me!). 
please keep your fingers crossed that i pass the first time
and can burn all 129,922,871 flashcards i currently have - and sadly,
that may or may not be an exaggeration. 

dress & faux leather jacket: nordstrom, choker: urban outfitters (similar here),
flats: aldo, ring: forever 21, purse: nordstrom rack

happy december, everyone! 
i suppose i missed out on a thanksgiving-related post, 
so we can jump right into christmas; i promise i'll be back with another outfit, a festive
gift guide, and of course, an ugly sweater look that is perfect
for any holiday party! 
xoxo.
