Red and Black

And the weekend is over! Oh man! It was nice to have such a long break from school, but I guess I'm ready to get back to the grind.

A few days ago I picked up this faux leather jacket from Jcpenney. For years now I have been coveting over one, but never seem to find the most perfect one. Well, fast forward years later and Scott spots this one at our local Jcpenney and says that I NEED it. It's the perfect cut (not too short, and the arms are longer than most leather jackets I have seen), feels great for faux leather, and is extra cute (Scott would say edgy, but If said it he would laugh at me!).

As you can tell the jacket ended up coming home with me and I'm so glad it did. I'm very excited to wear it this winter, and layer it with a few pretty cardigans. I also picked up this red slouchy beret and I'm in love with it! I've been wanting a red hat for ages, and I was happy to find the perfect one. I don't wear the color red often, but I feel like red is my color.

This weekend Scott and I spent some time getting in the holiday spirit. We picked out a new faux Christmas tree (is it weird that I've never had a real Christmas tree?), and a few pretty new ornaments. We also spent some time wandering the aisles of Trader Joe's and World Market, coveting over all of the Christmas goodies and decor.

Did you guys do any Black Friday shopping? Scott and I stopped by Jcpenney to check out all of their good deals! I might have picked up a Call It Spring satchel bag for myself! ECK!

Today I have school work to attend to, little odds and ends to do, and lots of coffee and tea to drink. Right now I'm obsessing over this vanilla and cinnamon tea I picked up at Trader Joe's! It's SO delicious!
