Happy Friday! I hope you all had a great week! Any fun plans for this weekend? No fun plans on the Hayley front- just work and homework. My favorite kinds of weekends! (If you didn’t read that sentence with a sarcastic tone, you read it wrong.)

Isn’t this sweater adorable? I love how sweet and feminine the ruffles on the shoulders are. The ruffles make enough of a statement that you don’t have to do much in terms of styling, so just a pair of jeans and booties worked for me. But I think I would love it even more with white jeans and wedges once it starts to get warmer! P.S. It comes in grey too, if you aren’t a pink gal.

I hope you all have a great weekend! Before I sign off, I have been working hard the past few weeks to start planning spring content for March, and I would love to get feedback on what you all would like to see! Are there any specific outfits for spring you would like to see? Do you find my outfit collages helpful? Or would you like to see more beauty content? I value your feedback so much, so it would mean so much to me to hear from y’all! If you have any suggestions, feel free to leave a comment on this post or on one of my Instagram photos!

Happy Thursday!!! So close to the weekend, holla! *always a decade behind with my slang* Today I bring you the most amazing jeans I have ever owned. I think we can all agree that jeans are pretty dang boring, but when I saw these, all of the little wires in the shopping part of my brain (what, you don’t have one of those?) started firing. I absolutely loveeeee the studs on these jeans. They are so unique and fun and make me feel extra stylish. I am excited to pair these with different shoes and tops for even more spunky looks.

Do y’all have any fun plans for the weekend? I know I do! If you didn’t read my last post, this weekend is my birthday weekend and I am headed to Charlotte! I am so pumped! I get very strangely excited to go home and just chill with my family and boyfriend. You would think I was going on some sort of extravagant trip, but no I’m just a homebody so I get really pumped to just spend time at home. #wild #partier #crazy

Oh, and I’m also baking myself a cake so I’m pretty excited for the extra calories.

How was your New Year’s, everyone?? Mine was pretty good! Nothing too wild though…my boyfriend and I actually ended up calling it a night at around 10:30 haha. Just a couple of crazy kids, huh?

This is a nice casual outfit that I thought was so easy and simple, but still managed to look casually chic. Maybe one day I will use the word ‘chic’ without feeling super pretentious, but until then I’m just gonna keep saying it. Everyone loves an outfit that looks good with little effort, right? Also, I can’t recommend these boots enough. They are the same ones I was wearing in this post, but in black. Told you I wanted to get my hands on them, didn’t I? They are selling out fast at a lot of places, so I suggest grabbing them while you can.

I’m enjoying my last week off before school starts again in a week. Ugh, isn’t that gross? Did I not just finish my last exam like a week ago?? It’s actually been three weeks since I finished my last exam, but it might as well have been one week ago because it has flown by.  Just thinking about sitting in class again makes me want to take a nap. And, ya know…cry.

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!

Cozy Winter Poncho

Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! I am just a day away from my last exam, then I’ll be heading to Charlotte for a quick trip home before heading back to Charleston to work the last little chunk before Christmas Eve. I have been aching for exams to be over so that I can finally think about nothing but the holiday season. I know that I am terrible about rushing time away, and that I can still enjoy the holiday season during exam week, and blah blah blah. But it’s just the way I am, and I don’t like anything distracting me from my favorite time of year.

This outfit is just one of the many reasons why this time of year is my favorite. I love being cozy, and this poncho is pretty much a wearable blanket. A more classy Snuggie, perhaps? I bought it last year so it’s old, but I linked a bunch of really similar ones for y’all! Also, I wasn’t sure about these leggings when I got them and how they would look on me, but boy oh boy am I impressed. They are Spanx leggings and they take all of the holiday treats I’ve consumed the past couple months that have found a home on my thighs, and suck them right in. I mean, why do I need a gym when I have these??? (Totally kidding…Exercise is healthy, cardio is fun, yeah, yeah, whatever.) They come in a few other colors too, so I might be adding them to my list of post-Christmas purchases I have going right now. Yes, I actually have a list of things I plan on buying with whatever money I get for Christmas. This list has been going for the past month and a half, I would say. It’s edited almost daily…

…Hi, I’m Hayley Murray. Purchasing clothing is one of my top 20 greatest joys in life and I love material goods. Have we met?
