colormenana 's Thoughts:

Hello dear readers! I hope you all had a wonderfully long weekend. I wanted to show you guys my new silk bow headband that I got at Anthropologie. I’ve never tried this trend before but I am in love with it now. This headband is kind of a mix between a turban and a little girl’s favorite accessory! Right when I put it on, I knew I had to have it. It adds such a fun, cartoonish quality to an outfit that makes me very happy. I sort of feel like Minnie Mouse when I wear it. I really need to invest in more head wear like this. It can make a plain t-shirt and jeans outfit feel and look luxurious.

I have had this coat for a few years and I know I will never part with it. It is vintage wool men’s Yves Saint Laurent. It reminds me of a hybrid between a cargo jacket and a classic trench. It came with a belt, but I prefer to wear it this way because I love things that are voluminous. I am very picky when it comes to outerwear, but I keep this one in heavy rotation during the colder seasons because it is classic yet distinct. Oh, and do you guys like my elephant ring! I thing elephants are such special, gently animals. I love them. Now I can be reminded of them every time I wear this ring!

This is my last week of the semester before finals! I feel like I have not cracked open a school book in years. This is not the norm for me, but it being my last semester, I will not be too hard on myself. I have already devoted the last 4 years of my life to endless studying in the libraries and hair-pulling literature review sessions. That being said, I’m going to catch up on your blogs without any guilt, and then start my studying!

More at my blog, Nana in Wonderland!
