I keep forgetting it's January, this first week is already going by so quickly! Since I don't start school again until February, I've still got plenty of time to rejoice in the fact that I'm home and have very limited responsibilities. Some of you may be questioning how I got so lucky to have a month and a half off of school, but it's because I'm not doing my school's January term. Apparently this optional term thing is very uncommon, but that's how Chapman is! I've opted-in the last three years of college, but decided I was going to give myself a break during my senior year. Although, were my other January terms really all that bad if I got to go to New Orleans and London?

Although my break isn't all fun and games! I've got an upcoming trip planned that I'm so excited for, and I'll definitely be sharing more on that soon (hint: check my social media next week!) and I've been attempting to content plan for these next few weeks. 

This post was a fun one to shoot with my sister, who I don't say too much about on here, but she's a great sport for putting up with me and my photo shoots! She was only home for a few days for Christmas and I dragged her out to shoot a few outfits, including this one. 

When I come home for winter break, I'm constantly having to pull on my Tory Burch riding boots because of the cold weather. Of course we don't have snow or anything where I am in the Bay Area, but it still gets into the low 50's during the day and down into the 40's when I'm out at night. These are my warmest shoes that I own, well, besides my Uggs which don't see the light of day much anymore! I'm also getting a lot of use out of my favorite navy quilted puffer vest, which I'm constantly throwing on over a long sleeve, or a sweater like this turtleneck one here. 

Also, a few of you were asking where I got my bag since I posted a preview of this look on Instagram last week, and it's actually my camera bag! I got it over the summer and I've been using it so much lately. I had an old camera bag that I was using before, but let's just say, it was NOT cute. So I would normally just forego the bag and take my camera without having any sort of protective case for it which wasn't exactly ideal. But I've been loving this one, and sometimes I'll use it on a day where I'm not even using my camera, but just have a lot of stuff to carry around!

This outfit has essentially been my uniform, since I've been home, and I don't think I'll be changing it up much in the time I have left here! When do y'all go back to work or school, and how did you spend your break?

Before you leave this post though, I have a fun giveaway for all of you! My friend Susana of Susana Cresce Planners and I are giving away 5 of her 2016-2017 planners that are ideal for students who are ready to take on the spring semester. This is the exact planner I use, so I'm so excited to be able to offer a few of you one of your own. Just enter below and I'll be picking the winners on Monday 1/9!
