Dancing in the moonlight...

Cardigan - H&M, tshirt - H&M, skirt - Target, leggings - Forever 21, heels - Deena and Ozzy.

About the title, I wish. But such summer moments have faded and I'll have to wait until late spring before I can dance freely outside at night without freezing my butt off. I live in the past or future... never the present. No wonder I'm not a fan of fall, summer's behind me and winter looms.

These shoes aren't as comfy as past wearings due to blisters at my ankles. Ouch.

I really should begin to do my homework, but my mind's just circling around weekend plans and what may or may not happen.

Hope you're well, xox Catherine

PS Trying to get a haircut soon. Possibly getting highlights or something as well... we'll see!

Feels like forever.

Cardigan - Urban, dress - Volcom, belt - flea market, leggings - Forever 21, boots - Modcloth.

Dude, I love these boots. I've worn them a few times this fall so far, but I suppose this is the first time wearing them on here. By the way, I'm so sorry about that. Two weeks without an outfit post? Damn, I'm lacking. But in my defense, I had a skin problem that limited me to ultra comfy clothes. Not that they can't be stylish... but my skin itched like hell and I've been disrupted.

Anyway, I am now obsessed with the show Dexter. If you haven't watched it, I advise you do. It's becoming so addicting. And I'm not a fan of television!

I have another outfit to display as well:

Cardigan - Forever 21, top - FCUK, skirt - H&M, tights - American Eagle, flats - Charlotte Russe

From last Friday. Only including the second photo because it gives you a better view of my new dot tights from American Eagle, of all places. I also got a pair of cute lace tights from there, but I decided it was too soon to wear tights because my skin is still a little itchy and tights always itch. And there's some other new items lurking in the background as well... brown cutout booties from Forever 21 and brown zipper boots by Blowfish. Hopefully I'll have the opportunity to show them sometime soon!

And while I'm at it and have lurking on my mind, I'm being Waldo (as in Where's Waldo?) for Halloween. I'm still not sure what I'm doing for the shirt, but I am determined. I'm not even sure if I'm going out for Halloween, but the following week my friend is having a party and I get to lurk in the background. Then the next day I'm going to Texas for a junior initiative project... except I'm not really supposed to be leaving the state or anything. But I can, so I will. I'll just keep it a secret and try not to be too tired the day I return (I'm only going for one night, how crazy!). I just never travel so this is exciting.

I'm so sorry I haven't updated lately. Hope you understand and that you're all doing fabulously, xox Catherine.

Faux leather jacket - Silence and Noise, cardigan - Forever 21, tshirt - American Apparel, necklaces - various, belt - mom, dress worn as skirt - H&M, half-footed leggings - Forever 21, heels - Target.

Finally broke out my (faux) leather jacket... it's finally hitting me that the weather is only going to get colder. Oh, the joys of living in a temperate climate. In case any of you remember, I hate winter and any weather that forces me to cover my limbs completely. But I must admit, it's kind of fun running around stomping on leaves while wearing this jacket. I don't know why, but it just is.

Anyway, today was kind of a downer, but I ate some comfort food so it's okay. Let me tell you, not everything they sell at Whole Foods is healthy, contrary to what some believe. Tofutti Cuties? Delicious (and adorable).

I'm so excited that I don't have to work at all this weekend... basically by chance. I rarely do anything exciting over the weekends, but it's just nice to be able to relax. And I may head up to the Renaissance Faire - there's some AWESOME jewelry there. And I could really go for watching the Nightmare Before Christmas curled up with a warm drink. But sadly, it's on VHS, and even if I did have it on DVD, my player is broken. Hmph.

I've realized that it's been a while since I last posted. I know I keep saying this, but I'm really going to try to improve and get some sort of routine in place.

Hope you're all well, xox Catherine!

PS I'm trying to dress up as Waldo for Halloween... anyone know where I can find a plain longsleeved red and white shirt?

Cardigan - Forever 21, tshirt - Forever 21, jeans - H&M, shoes - Target.

Finally, an outfit post! These jeans are so comfortable. No stretch, but they're not stiff either. They don't fall down my ass and it's glorious. These shoes have yet to prove they're as comfortable as my other black heels, but I'm sure if I wore them with socks I would be able to avoid that.

Anyway, I ended up going to Ikea today and it was wonderful. I'm adding red accents to my room and I'm so excited for it to be a "real" living space - two years after I've redone it. And I'm in the process of finishing up my art project (see below!), but I'm so excited to start my next one. I'm doing my own interpretation of Alice in Wonderland, hopefully on a huge canvas in oil paints. I know it's kinda cliche, but it's going to be so fun.

And an outfit from last week, which I never had the opportunity to post:

Blazer - Urban, tshirt - Heritage, jeans - Delia's, shoes - no name.

The day I wore that was fun... that's what I love about clothes, they hold memories and they don't waste space like old ticket stubs (yes, I have quite a few). Went to a random trampoline in the woods with one of my friends, and it was a nice Tuesday adventure.

Possibly tomorrow I'll post about some of the S/S 2010 collections, if I have time. I probably will since I have no other plans, but it's all a matter of whether I want to be lazy or not.

More apologies...

I'm really, really sorry. But I'm feeling much better. I'm hoping tomorrow I'll have an outfit post, and I'm certainly anticipating Stella McCartney's S/S 2010 collection. And hopefully I'll finally respond to all of your comments.

But this is all subject to change considering my mom told me tomorrow might be a good time to go to Ikea (I've been begging her all weekend).

Anyway, here's a not-so-new picture of Rachel Bilson:

And even though this isn't new, she's been dressing very well lately, comparable to her old style (anyone else notice a decline once she was with Hayden?)...

I forget where I found this, oops. I just happen to have a folder on my computer with photos of her outfits, so I really don't recall where this came from.

Can't believe it, it's the tenth month of the year. I'm home sick today, but I've been completely busy for the past... however long it's been since I have posted. Apologies.

Anyway, Alexa Chung is fabulous (even if she is looking scary-skinny lately...):

Cred: Weheartit.

Hope you're all well! xox Catherine
