Bonjour it's Jinah!

Friday, December 24


Hello friends! I disappeared for far longer than I intended... In addition to the end of classes backing into the Busy Season for Retail, I think I psyched myself out. For a snap I had convinced myself of all of these terrible self deprecating middle school sentiments. Which really makes it hard to want to be in photos, much less share them all over the web.

Good thing my amazing boyfriend didn't believe any of that nonsense. While I was content to stuff my face and laze on the sofa, he had bigger and better plans. When I unwrapped a remote controller for my camera, I knew that I needed to get this blog back on the road.







Outfit details:
Wooden Ships knit beret (similar style here or here, and available locally at Squash Blossom!)
J. Crew ruffled wool coat (similar or here)
American Apparel triblend tank
Scout Holiday A Fine Fete necklace from Anthropologie  (check out their Etsy for more options, yay!)
plenty by Tracy Reese Peppered and Striped skirt (now on sale--try Anthro stores!)
J. Crew slouch trouser socks
Seychelles Her Majesty wedges
Mulberry Alexa bag

I had the morning of the annual Anthro tag sale off from work, so I scurried to the mall to check it out. Since all my shopping for friends and family was totally wrapped up, I snapped up a few things for myself, including this skirt. No one can entice me with a sale like Anthropologie can.

Have a merry Christmas y'all! For a little bit of extra fun, don't forget to check out Tara's 12 Days of Christmas Blogger Bonanza, of which the finale is tomorrow. I squeezed in a few hours to contribute and I'm loving every photo that pops up each day!

Winter Craft ADD



Most of my friends will attest to my major crafting ADD. I feel like I always have a project in every category in progress, and still get sudden urges to create something new. And usually at the most inconvenient times... This time around? Right smack dab in the middle of finals week.

My favorite cold weather crafty activity is knitting. When I found myself at my local yarn shop with lots of chunky yarn in hand, I knew that it was the perfect opportunity to blow off all of that exam time stress and get some holiday gifts in the making. I find it's nice to keep my hands busy when my mind feels like mush.

So this year it looks like a run of chunky circle scarves and cowls are in order. Now that that's settled, back to hitting the books. See you on the other side of finals in a few days!
