Whats in the wrapping?

For some reason things are just a little better when they come in pretty wrapping. I think it is mainly due to the fact that it shows that someone cared enough to take the time to make it a little prettier, just for you. Or at least that is how I felt as I watched the lovely saleswomen at Arthropologie carefully wrap the tights I had just purchased.

I love the simplistic look of the colors and writing in both of these bags.
The tights I bought I love the simple color detail in them.

Shirt I bought from Kansas City Kitty a really cute boutique in old town Fort Collins. They also have a blog.

The Perfect Practical Shoe

Winter in Rexburg, ID is less than fashion friendly and I have often been seen walking to class in ridiculous outfits that were not quite suited for the weather. My footwear in particular has proven particularly troublesome due to the fact that cute boots and heels often do not include traction, leading to numerous, not so graceful falls. One such fall was the cause of a broken laptop, which finally lead me to the decision that something had to change. With this resolution in mind I came back to Colorado determined to find a shoe that could meet my needs and had a little bit of style, naturally.

The solution came at JAX where I found these Bog boots. With the help of a charming salesmen, I slowly came to find that these boot seemed to be the solution to my dilemma. They had the utilitarian charm I was looking for, traction, and are insulated up to -20 degrees. Hopefully they will stand up to "Icebergs" weather!

The Classics

This is just a quick outfit post, hopefully I will be able to continually post these as school starts. This post was inspired by the classics: pearls, pencil skirt, and black lace tights.

Here is a video that I just created. It is my attempt to capture the simple pleasure of driving and enjoying Colorado set to some of my favorite songs. Comments and opinions of the video would be much appreciated!

Christmas Sparkle

Sadly Christmas in Colorado was brown, luckly there was a little bit of sparkly under the tree and plenty of snow back in Idaho. Hope that all of your Christmas' were full of Christmas sparkle and love. Merry Christmas!

This necklace was given to me and made by my sister!

These rings were also made by my Sister.

These necklaces were made by my Mothers friend.

Give me moments not hours

Here is the video I made of my Europe trip last April and May. It is the first video I have ever made so some of the recording is not that great. It is kinda long and basically just captures some of the moments of the trip with amazing music and some pictures that I took. Hope you guys enjoy! I am going to try to put together another video soon, it is something I really enjoy doing. Would love to here what you think of it!

I'm back

So it seems I cannot quite keep up the blogging, maybe third try is the charm. This time I have a little inspiration from a couple friends and the stats tab on blogger (that for some reason I just found out existed) to encourage me. I have some exciting ideas for some new posts that include another DIY post and possibly a video if I find the time this break. The outfit pictures are of an old outfit I have been meaning to post. Here is a sneak peek at the DIY project!

Scarf: Gypse stand Spain
Belt and Jacket: DI (local thrift store)
