south for the winter

Did you know that one of the main reasons that birds migrate in the winter is to find a better source of food? After the last few days of my mom's home-cooked meals, yummy holiday treats, and as many lattes as I can drink...I'm starting to think they have the right idea. Flying (driving) south for the winter is treating me well.
 I warned you that I wouldn't be taking this scarf off anytime soon! I wore it with this skirt (borrowed from my sister) to go thrifting and craft supply shopping with my mom and brother yesterday. Today was a day spent walking around downtown Seattle with friends from town: window shopping, sipping coffee, looking at all the Christmas lights, and catching up. It was fun and Christmas-y, and I am very proud of myself for making it through Forever 21, H&M, AND Urban Outfitters without buying a thing. I may have finally found self control in regards to shopping. Holla!

Hope you have a fantastic weekend! :)

This outfit is so cozy and I love the color on your scarf. I recently purchased one and I will never be taking it off. Also I love your post title (clearly it's true for you), but it's also a song by one of my favorite bands!

Whoa, I am proud of your self control! I am having sooooo much trouble not buying "Christmas presents for myself" every other day, haha.

Really cute outfit girl, you always look so adorable! :)
And don't get me started on all the terrible bad (yet delicious) food that I have been eating! It's amazing I still fit in my clothes! haha.

I would not have been able to survive all those stores, wonderful job!
