Hello everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! I had a pretty good weekend. My boyfriend came to Charleston to visit me, and we took a ton of blog photos and I cooked us dinner. I made us meatloaf…I’ve never really liked meatloaf, but Juan does, and I hadn’t had it in years, so I thought it would be a nice easy dish to make us. I gave it a go, and it is now confirmed that I officially do not like meatloaf. That’s what I get for not following my heart when it’s telling me, “Just make spaghetti.”

This outfit is one that I’ve had planned for a month, but had tweaked and changed it several times before I finally came to the final look. I decided at the last minute to add a hat to it, and take away a jacket, and in the end, I really like the way the look came together. It’s a great, fun outfit for Valentine’s Day if you aren’t going anywhere too fancy!

I hope you all are having a great start to your week! I’ve been trying to go running more, because no matter what the groundhog said, I live in Charleston and will probably be forced to wear a bathing suit within a matter of weeks *weeps as I put sweaters into storage.* So I’m getting ready to go running today! I can guarantee I will be thinking about donuts with every step.

Hello, friends!! It’s a new week…but I don’t know how I feel about it. My holiday break is over, and I’m back in Charleston for the first day of school. Why does it always go by so fast?? It feels like it was only a few days ago that I was headed to Charlotte for Christmas. I guess my favorite time of year is over, and now I just have to wait another 350 days for Christmas Eve 2018. Huhhhh, so sad.

Anyways, today brings one of my favorite outfits on the blog to date. This jacket is one of my favorite purchases of 2017. It comes in three colors in the leather version, and five colors in a suede version. I actually jut bought the suede version a couple weeks ago, and I cannot wait to wear it. It will be on the blog very soon. I think a cute jacket can make an outfit. You can throw it over a t-shirt and jeans, and the outfit will be instantly dressed up. It makes everything so easy. In this post I’m wearing a super simple black dress and black tights, and the leather jacket combined with the leopard booties makes the look something a little extra.

I hope you all are having a fantastic start to your week. My parents are coming this weekend to visit me, and I am counting down the days. Visits from the parents mean trips to the grocery store and maybe a little Target trip too. Have you seen their Valentine’s Day section??  So much pink, so little time. The perfect place to buy things you absolutely don’t need! My specialty!

Neutrals Can Be Fun

And just like that, my favorite time of the entire year is over *sobs, cries, blows nose, weeps*. It actually brings me to tears a little bit. I know I’m being dramatic and that I have so much to be grateful for, but I always feel really sad after the holidays are over. I don’t want to drink Starbucks out of the plain white cups, or hear boring music on the radio. And you never realize how bland your house or apartment normally looks until you take your Christmas decorations down. I’ve already seen some people take their decorations down and I cant believe it! Just a few days have passed since Christmas and they’re already down?? What’s the rush?? I can tell you right now, mine are going to be up until February. That’s just how I do things at the Murray house.

One thing that’s brought me joy during this dark time in my life haha, has been spending my Christmas money and buying clothes. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again…I’m materialistic and love to shop. Take me as I am.

These shoes are one of my favorite gifts that I got for Christmas this year. Let me tell ya, they make me feel so fierce. I literally want to buy them in every color. I want to buy a new pair of black booties, so if Sam Edelman brings back this style again next year, a black pair will definitely be on my wish list.

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas with your families and friends, and are doing a better job at coping with the fact that it’s over than I am!
