Before I get to my post check out my feature on Smashion!

Yesterday we had the day off work for President's Day.  I was looking forward to being very productive, doing a fun outfit shoot and relaxing. But that didn't happen. I did nothing until 4pm and then I decided to finally do something.  I got out my fashion magazines that I picked up from my parent's house yesterday to read and took some photos of my new Alligator pin! I actually got this a few weeks ago when I visited a friend at Yale, but haven't found the perfect way to wear him yet.  Then I realized that he matches my DKNY coat perfectly! So he has a new permanent spot in my closet and will finally start seeing the daylight! (in the summer I'll have to find some other ways to wear him)

Coat: DKNY, Pin: Laila Rowe in New Haven $10, Magazines: Vogue, Elle, Harper's Bazaar, Marie Claire

And for those of you that don't follow me on Instagram here are some shots from the past 2 weeks.
