Ready to go home?

The last few days in the US are spent studying and Christmas shopping!
Very soon, I will be reunited with my family in Germany!
Excited Christmas greetings from the Midwest,

I've got a war in my mind.

Hat: Spencer's, Coat: Aeropostale, Sweater: AE, Jeans: Hollister, Boots: JC Penney's





Brrrrr. The Midwest is a cold Midwest now!
My (seasonal) depression is kicking in a little, but I am working and going to school almost 24/7 and that really distracts me.

This outfit is mainly from the thrift store, except for the hat, boots (and the obvious socks and underwear)! I rarely ever shop at stores like Hollister or American Eagle anymore simply because their prices are ridiculous. But finding some cute clothes for the fraction of the original retail price is always nice. Retail therapy! :)

Last night was supposed to be my "off-work-Saturday-night-out", and I did go out and saw some of my friends that I barely ever get to see...yet I was in a rather sad mood. I was even wanting to go to work, wanting to be busy and distracted. 
This has nothing to do with specific people or recent events, but much rather the general feeling of loneliness. When I am at work with the residents, I feel happy and social. Those people are so loving and cute. 

I guess what I'm trying to say is: I'm ready to go home and see my family.
Christmas in Germany, I can't wait :)

Crazy Pants

Shirt: H&M, Cardigan: Primark, Pants:Kohl's, Boots: JC Penney's



Red eyeliner: MAC

It's been quite a while since I've taken any outfit photos.
Mainly because I either work, go to school (or bike).
My car broke last week. By now, I managed to get a new one :) Love it!

I had a Friday night off work, which rarely ever happens. Time for crazy pants and red eyeliner!

On a different note: I hate men.
(Not all of them, but you know what I mean)

I am meant to live my life as a crazy cat lady wearing crazy pants! :)

Coat

Coat, Cardigan & Heels: Thrifted, Jeans: Miss Sixty, Top: H&M

This outfit is NOT weather-appropriate. Temperatures in the 70-80 degrees range don't call out for a pink fall coat. The Midwest weather is being crazy lately, but this photo is from last week.

There's no need to stress about what to wear today - I work.
Also, I will have to get my requires flu shot. The person that never ever gets sick needs a flu shot.
WTF!!!
But that's not a decision I have control over. The nursing program says we need the shot. There is no arguing with that, let me tell you. Can I at least give myself the flu shot?

Stay flu free!

Ladies in Hats

Sweater: Thrifted, Skirt: Zara, Tights & Boots: Kohl's
The cutest sweaters can sometimes be found in the kid's section at Goodwill :)
I've seen plenty of wine red & oxblood colors and decided to stick with my personal favorite : PINK :)

Usually, I am not the type to follow seasonal trends just for the trend.
And my favorite fashion trend for fall is figure flattering (not!) scrubs and gym clothes anyways.
