these leaves though.

 sweater: JCPenney / jeans: Aeropostle /scarf: H+M / backpack: c/o Lulus / boots: c/o Blowfish Shoes 

whew. life has been one big whirlwind - and it's not even the holidays yet. well, i guess it depends on your perspective of when the holiday season officially starts. seems like it started way before Halloween even began in the stores or on all the tv commercials. and i have to admit, i myself have been feeling the temptation of decorating the apartment and playing the Christmas music. 

resist, ilene. resist. 

but praise Jesus, we live in the south. i heard my friends and family up north are already facing below freezing temperatures and have been greeted with snow. i am so sorry. and as much as i miss Chicago, that is probably one of the reasons that keeps my heart content with living here in Georgia.

like i said, these leaves though. 
insert much deserved applause to God here. 

much love.
{happy wednesday, friend.}
