A conundrum of topics.

pants, sweater, hat: thrifted, booties: famous foot wear

Happy New Years Eve! This holiday is near and dear to my heart. Robert proposed to me two years ago tonight! Read about it HERE if ya wanna. Last year we celebrated by going thrift store shopping and then hit up a hot springs with some friends. This year is going to be so fun! Ha, Rob's sick so we're staying home. He's playing video games and I'm well... laying on the couch. Maybe I'll clean up our house? Naw, doubt it.

I got my hair cut and let's just say that the girl who cut my hair does not understand curly hair. It's a lot shorter than what I wanted but hey, it grows back. I was mad about it for an hour and now I'm over it. A couple more months and I'll have my long locks back again.

My mom made me get these boots above when we were in Utah last week. I had only brought one pair of boots and well, uh, they were totally broken. I mean cracks in the sole that were not fixable (I tried to fix them with hot glue and everyone laughed at me. I just couldn't part with them just yet!). I LOVED them! They went with everything and I got them for $4 at a thrift store. You can't beat $4. Ever. I didn't want to part with them. But my mother convinced me to give the heave-ho to said boots and here we are. These boots don't really go with this outfit (my dead boots would have ;) but it's cool. They're still cute. 

Also, I got a job at Michael's today. I start Thursday. I needed a job and I got one. Kind of embarrassing that I just got a college degree and now I'll be working for minimum wage, but hey, a job is a job and it will pay the bills. 


  1. Cute outfit, Katherine! The maroon in the top bookends the maroon pants. And about the boots, well, if you carried a tan bag (since I see quite a bit of tan in your shoes), the outfit would look well coordinated.

  2. Your blog is darling! Feel free to look at my blog! I follow back!

  3. I think your hair looks really cute! I hate when I leave the salon (or Great Clips) not loving my hair, though.. so I understand. Love the new boots and RIP to your old faves! - Rachel (For the Birds)

  4. Congratulations on the job! And I can't believe it's been two years since he proposed! That means I've been following you for over two years! Crazy!

  5. This little shirt and boots are so cute! And congrats on the job! Awesome!
    Love the hat - such a great topper

  6. It's always painful getting rid of shoes, even when they're ruined.
    Congrats on the job! I was thinking of applying at Hobby Lobby if I can't find a photography job. I know what you mean about being a graduate and getting a minimum wage job. Sometimes it's necessary. Good luck!
