Happy New Year loves!
Two things in today's blog post: 1) A revival of #MondayMusings and 2) We're talking goals and resolutions! Despite the trend showing people moving away from resolutions, I think they're good to have. Read more about a few of my New Year goals under the Life & Style tab.
For most of us, 2017 was no easy year. Tons of political turmoil, numerous world crises, and crazy environmental catastrophes were just the tip of the iceberg. But guess what? We've made it through- well, we're only 3 days shy!
Despite all of the turmoil that took place, personally my year was pretty solid. 2017 consisted of many firsts for me: My international trip, first broadway show(s), visits to new cities, and the perfect gift to wrap up the year!
Finally sharing this AMAZING sweater on the blog today! If you follow me on Instagram, you might remember my *slight* freak out when I won a contest hosted by Wooden Ships Knits a few weeks ago. Backstory: I enjoy decorating my place for Halloween and other than the typical pair of jack-o-lantern socks, I didn't own anything related to the holiday. When I saw this sweater a few months earlier I knew it would be perfect to wear to celebrate Halloween! Unfortunately, it was a little out of my price range (remember, I'm a graduate student!) so I just dreamt of owning it. UNTIL I saw that Wooden Ships was running an Instagram contest to win the sweater.
All I had to do was comment with Halloween related emojis and tag friends on their posts. And can I tell you, I commented every ghost, pumpkin, bat, and vampire that I could find on my emoji keyboard EVERY SINGLE DAY. And it paid off!
This is by far the softest sweater I own and it's actually quite warm despite it being so lightweight! And honestly, I have all intentions of wearing it even when it isn't Halloween. Wooden Ships has such a wide variety of sweaters available that you can find just about any style that interests you! Let me know what you think about my sweater in the comment section below!
P.S. Wooden Ships is having a Black Friday sale (15% off your order!) until Monday, November 27th + they're donating 15% to charities. Enjoy!
Happy Halloween friends! I hope you're all celebrating with lots of candy and your favorite spooky and spirited movies tonight. I'm taking it pretty easy and catching up on some class work tonighy after having a blast with my classmates at our annual Halloween party last night.
Halloween is such a fun holiday and it doesn't have to be spooky! Of course I love a good skull here and there but I shy away from the gore and blood. In keeping light with the holiday, I bough this fun "Trick or Treat Yourself" tee from Riff Riff Boutique earlier this month! RiffRaff is giving 20% off site wide until midnight tonight (use code TRICK at checkout) so feel free to grab whatever you want!

Fall is finally amongst us here in the south! And by Fall, I mean weather temps that are no longer in the 80s and 90s! Early mornings are chilly and the afternoons are pretty pleasant. With this amazing weather and a few days off from class, I'm sharing a little life update and this Fall inspired look on the blog today!
My second and final year of grad school is off to a bang! Classes aren't nearly as grueling but they do require a bit more outside work than usual. Other than classes, I've been traveling to career fairs and conferences in search of a job! I've had pretty good luck so far but the grind never stops.
Other than school and job hunting, I'm figuring out ways to create more valuable content for you all, so I've jumped on the vlog bandwagon and started a YouTube channel! My page isn't super loaded yet, but once I have more videos up I'll share with you. Until then, you can see what's happening in my daily life over on the 'gram [_margosmith].
I'm a fairly easy lady when it comes to putting outfits together, so I couldn't wait to pair my new cognac faux suede jacket with this all black look. This jacket is just heavy enough to actually keep me warm and to even layer underneath it. You can find similar styles here, here, and here. Not to mention this AMAZING hat from Zara. I picked up this hat while in Mexico early this year and have had to wait over six months to wear it! I snagged my faux suede jacket from TJ Maxx for half the listed price, along with my Sam Edelman boots in Nashville. So many people dread visiting TJ Maxx, but honestly, it's my safe place. I can go in there and find literally any and everything! How are you updating your closet for Fall? Share below in the comment section!
