Casual Friday

As you saw from this post, I have been baking nonstop. After a crazy day, making these Nutella cupcakes was the perfect way to relax. My favorite thing to do lately is make some coffee, blast some Beyonce, and get baking--I'll probably gain 10 lbs from Pinterest alone. 
A few people said they liked the Casual Friday feature, so I'll keep it going for a bit. I knew I had a long day ahead of me when I wore this, so I wanted to be comfortable but have a bit of pop to my outfit--and what adds pop better than animal print and neon? Also, you can't really see the boots very well but I got these brown leather boots for 50 cents. 50 CENTS! I've been bragging about them all week, because you can't get anything for 50 cents anymore--unless you're taking first pick at a garage sale. I consider them my reward for being up at 8am with all the pro garage salers. 

ps, I apologize for the dark indoor pictures--having class until four means it's dark when I get home. Anyone else ready for longer days? Any funs plans for the weekend? Do share! 

shirt: H&M, sweater: Old Navy, necklace: Charlotte Russe, boots: garage sale

Hey there! I just found your blog from the Awkward Girl's linkup (I haven't quite linked up yet....) Anyway, I LOVE the cardigan layered over the chambray. And I'm super jealous of those boots - so 8am garage sale is the trick?

Love your newest follower,
Brooke
