Farewell, November


______I must honor the last of autumn's leaves that have fallen with my yellow dress.  Just as the leaves of nature grow and wither and change from season to season, my citizens, we do, too.  Like the mighty oak that grows where one would think it not able--

______I jest, I jest.  I won't get into something philosophical like that.  It'd really be too much thinking after such a long week.

______It's really not fair for me to complain about long weeks, though, because I only have one more week until the time when my final exams take place.  Uh, what?  Wasn't it Halloween like, last week?  What happened?  I feel like I'm losing track of time.  Honestly, I still feel like a freshman in college at times, even though I'm going into my second semester as a sophomore.  I'm nearly halfway through college and I feel like there are still so many things that I need to learn, so much I need to do, and I can only hope that the rest of my college experience fills these voids and questions within me.  Of course, so many questions that I've been asking myself have indeed been answered, but at times it also seems that more of questions are raised than solved.

______Ah, I digress.  I really can't believe there's only one more month of 2012.  Well, almost one month--the world is supposed to end on the 21st... or did they cancel that?


______Here's to a lovely December, my sweet citizens.

Yellow dress, cardigan: Charlotte Russe
Necklace: Charming Charlie
Earrings: Lotus Boutique
Houndstooth tights: gifted
Gold loafers: Urban Outfitters (on sale for $20, aww yiss)


Well... said...

Lol way to refrain from deep philosophy Ali...I think my brain would've exploded at this point if you did (just got done with a math exam...yucky).
Anyway, there's that lovely dress again! I love the navy accents you added - what adorable tights!

Your tights are amazing! I would wear them everyday if I were you!

I don't know where the time went. This time of year makes me feel like I'm in this weird time warp where time is slow but fast. It's stressful.

This is stunning! What a great holiday inspiration look. Your cardigan is so classic and pretty and works so well with this dress. You are always the best at accessorizing too! That necklace, the shoes ahhh I love it all :) Have a happy day!

The dress is such a gorgeous and I love the cardigan :) And wow the gold loafers are so shiny and for such a great deal! It does seem like fall just went by so quickly. I still can't believe it's already the holiday season!

Jen Hsieh said...

I seriously don't understand how you always manage to look so perfect (in my standards) in your posts! You're beautiful inside and out and those gold shoes don't hurt. ;) I really need to pair yellow and navy together more often because it's such a classic yet modern combination.

November really did fly by though and I feel like December will too. Holiday months are always crazy! I really hope the 21st was cancelled. I kind of want to be able to see my boyfriend one last time before the world ends. :P

I'm loving this look!! the navy sweater with the cream trim really make the yellow pop! you rocked it!

Giovanna said...

Such a cute look! Loving that yellow color! It pops against the black! Great cardi!


Rose-et-Violet said...

I really do hope they cancelled the end of the world, because there are way too many exciting things ahead of us. The year has gone by way too fast :/ and I feel you on the college thing...I'm a sophomore too, and it's so scary knowing that the end is so close...not too close, but still!

As for your outfit, Ali, navy and mustard is my favorite combination ever, and you wear the colors so well. And those tights!


Coline Chavaroche said...

I love this outfit !


Nicole Testa said...

Oh my goodness, this is such a perfect outfit! Yellow and navy is one of my favorite color combinations, but I never feel like I'm cool enough to pull it off. But you are the coolest, so it makes sense why you look so awesome. And omg, those shoes are out of control. Oh, and I totally almost forgot about the world ending, oops.

Carla Florendo said...
