now you're gone, are they moving on

photo by Yookoo that partly inspired my outfit 

I'm trying to layer more, because right now my layering game is about a 6 (on a scale of 1-10), but I'm working on it.
haha yes, my room is a mess (woahh that rhymed), but  my books are color coded so its okay. 

it looks like i'm trying to smuggle a llama in my sleeves. 

Vivian Girls - Share the Joy (fits the aesthetic and the post title is from one of the songs) 
It's a really nice album and has a very fall, hot chocolate, spending the whole day reading - vibe

A really lovely old pin. 
 I think it's supposed to depict the Roman goddess Venus (goddess of beauty). 
When I bought it from a yard sale, it was just a flat piece of china (or something similar) and I taped a pin to the back.

heyyy it's a bag made out of a book (I'm so smart) (not really) I made it with this Rookie DIY. 

The only thing that could have completed this outfit for me (actually, there's a lot of things, aka buy me nice clothes please) would be this UO tartan cardigan. Does anyone have $79 they don't really need?
I normally wouldn't have been able to wear my outfit today seeing as it's (NEGATIVE) 16 degrees F outside. Luckily, school's closed today and tomorrow because of dangerously cold weather. (give me a second to explode because I can stay home for two more days) ADFGHJKL;'QWRETWEROPIY[ZXCJZXBC,M. !@#$67dsakfj

It's not that I hate school or learning at all, it's more that the thought of school (the work, the teachers, the adolescents, waking up early etc) gives me immense amounts of stress. 

For everyone who had to end their vacations today, I'm very sorry and hope you  get through this. 

In other news, happy 28th birthday to Alex Turner!  (If you're obsessed with Arctic Monkeys, please e-mail me so we can have neurotic conversations about their perfection. )
