|Hoping my inner nerd will come out for midterms this week!|

Limited light, free time, and a place to take pictures this week, so here are just a couple of pictures of my recent outfit... Somehow, whenever I take pictures I end up feeling awkward and just going into dance poses, because hey, they're easy to do, and it gives me somewhere to put my arms and legs without overthinking it. So, yeah..
Top: Thrifted (previously seen here)
I've been over-wearing these boots recently as I look for a new pair.. boots are such a fall staple but I'm super picky about what I like, so I'm having a hard time shopping for them.
Have a good weekend, everybody!

So, I might have broken a lamp the other day.
But it's okay, 'cus I totally fixed it. And now it's better than it was before. It's artsy. Promise.
Oh, you want to know what happened? Well, the base broke. As in, it doesn't stand up anymore. So, obviously, we just taped it the the wall. Engineers, I'm telling you.
This is gonna be a new thing, isn't it?

Mugdha and I discovered the cutest little cupcake place in Pacific Beach the other day while we were out thrifting! I got a delicious Red Velvet cupcake, and Mugdha got a boring coffee.
My favorite things (other than the actual cupcakes, obviously) about the place were the adorable little details. They had these precious couches, nice little wooden tables, and great bookshelves! To be honest, I felt like I was sitting in my mother's house. Only with yummy fresh-baked cupcakes.
|I was trying to get a picture of me eating it...|
|Sort of? OMNOMNOM|

We started the night out right with some good old fashioned goofing off at my place. One of my friends/residents had these dorky glasses and I was really enjoying them.
We put on VH1 and rocked out a little while we waited for my roommates to get ready to go to some party.
Then, once everyone left, Mugdha and I got ready to go. We hadn't hung out in such a long time, we couldn't help but take some pictures of our "rave-y" outfits. And when I say "some" pictures, I mean ONE MILLION pictures. Here are a few. Sorry there are still so many..
Then we met up with one of my favorite people in the world and his girlfriend (who is also super awesome) and headed out to this on-campus dance rave thing.
It was crazy. We waited in line for SO LONG only to have them shut the whole thing down because crazy people were breaking down barriers and stuff. We never even got in to where the DJs were.
But it was all okay, because even just waiting in line with my favorite people was super fun, and I got to hang out with Mugdha after so long! I <3 her. :)

There's one fashion trend this fall that is just popping up EVERYWHERE on the ol' blogosphere. I think most (if not all) of my favorite bloggers have featured it in their outfit posts at one point.. and I am 100% on board. Maybe even obsessed, a little. Maybe.
FALL 2011 FASHIONSPIRATION:
A longer, pleated skirt, usually paired with a cute blouse and a braided, tucked belt.
Sigh. I loves it.
|For example, THIS absolute amazingness from A Beautiful Mess.|
I looked through my closet and blog archives only to discover that I own nothing even remotely close to this skirt. Last fall, it was all about dresses, or shorter skirts paired with tights. The longer skirts that I do own are too professional for class (let's face it, on days where I show up in even the most casual dress, I field questions of "oh! You look nice! Where are you off to today?" from everyone I know.. as if I don't wear dresses all.the.time.), or.. well, just ugly.
So, next on the thrifting list (and hopefully I'm going tomorrow): a longer pleated skirt! It's obvious that this is a must-have item for this fall. Still don't believe me? Well, maybe you'll believe the experts:
From Kendi of Kendi Everyday, paired with a nicer top and some adorable pumps:
From my absolute favorite styler of this skirt, Megan of Feathers and Freckles, who repeatedly knocks this look out of the park. I love how she makes it work with anything-- from boots, to wedges, to a casual t-shirt and flats:
From Tania of What Would a Nerd Wear (love her blog's name, too!):
Slightly different, but similar, from Elizabeth of Delightfully Tacky:
Adorably '50s, from Keira of A Pretty Penny, whose outfit here first caught my eye and kept me on the lookout for the trend coming from all my other favorite blogs:
And one last one from Elsie of A Beautiful Mess:
So, there you have it, my current obsession/ Fall Fashionspiration! Hopefully coming soon from Musings as well. Which beautiful blogger do YOU think styled the look best?

Every so often, I like to give you guys an idea for things that I have tickled my fancy recently (#whydoesthatsounddirty?). So, without further ado, here are the last 15 things that I gave a thumbs up to on Stumbleupon, along with what I think about them:

Yet another great quote about love.
Interesting thoughts on life and the world.
Great stuff no one told me.
Enjoy! Go Stumble your hearts away..

Ugh. You ever have one of those days where you feel like you look cute, and you like what you're wearing, but somehow when you look in the mirror or see pictures, you're still just not satisfied?
That's what today was.
I lovelovelove my new boots, but they just don't photograph well.
And then I was having a bad hair day.
And then I couldn't figure out how to take a picture of myself without a tripod.
|LOVE these new boots I got in Berkeley!!|
Top: Urban Outfitters
Jeans: Charlotte Russe
Please excuse the utter horribleness of these pictures; I'm finding outfit/ self photos hard to do without out my old roomie (and her tripod) around to help out :(
Plus my bedroom has weird lighting.
I miss you, Mugdha!
