new year, new you

Aaaand, I'm back.  I totally did not mean to take a one-week hiatus from blogging, but that's what happened.  First off I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year!  I'm so glad that I started this blog last year and got to cyber 'meet' all of you and I can't wait to see what 2011 brings!  I have a good feeling about this year =)  I spent my NYE at a party with my friends and it was a blast!  I wore one of my new tops, which I got for 1 penny at the Wet Seal Buy-One-Get-One-for-1 cent sale and paired it with this leather skirt which I snagged a month ago at Forever 21 for a little over $15.  Add a boyfriend blazer and tights for warmth and my new favorite wedges (which are much more comfortable once I added some Dr. Scholl's inner soles) and my outfit is complete!  Oh, and a new nail polish to ring in the new year!  How was your new year's eve?


sheer blouse- Wet Seal, black lace cami (underneath),
skirt, tights- forever 21, wedges- Urban Original




Also wearing some makeup, which I rarely do because I'm rather lazy ;)








blazer- Filene's Basement






I've got a little less than a week before I head back to school and since many of my friends had to go back, I plan to spend a lot of this last week relaxing and taking care of business.  Probably no more shopping because I've spent almost all of my Christmas money (woops!), but you'll definitely be seeing some of my new and thrifted purchases in upcoming posts.

Ohh, and some new year's resolutions!

1. Don't be afraid to tell people how I feel.
2. Work to keep in touch with friends because I know
it will be easy to lose contact when we graduate.
3. Continue working to improve my blog.

Any resolutions that you care to share? I hope you all had a lovely start to the New Year! =)

P.S. I'm thinking of adding a weekly feature here on the blog (I think it would help me post more regularly, if I have a goal to work towards) so I turn to you readers and
ask, what sort of feature would you like see/read here?

I really like the leather skirt - that was a good score, and the blazer over top of it works really well!

You look great! I'm especially LOVING your skirt and nail color! A one-week hiatus isn't too bad, so no worries! I'm glad you had a great New Year's Eve and it sounds like you're having a lot of fun getting together with old friends. I can't wait to see what you've purchased with your Xmas money!

In response to your P.S.: maybe you could feature something related to your knitting? I'm not sure. I'd love to see all the things you have made.
