Early last week I picked up Fati and we took photos for each other over at the shops at Riverwoods. We wanted to do a fun festive shoot and purchased some delicious drinks from Starbucks prior. We had such a fun time hanging out and getting a few photos before the sun went away for the evening.

Tmart recently sent me this shirt to style. After looking through their site I chose this shirt because it looked comfortable, cute, and baggy on the model. To my surprise it didn't fit me at all like the model and it's kind of awkward to wear with a belt. I honestly don' find this shirt flattering on my body type but tried my best to style it. I went for a "grungy holiday look" wearing a brown jacket and beanie to cover my dirty hair.

On a random note, have any of you watched the How I Met Your Mother finale? I know this topic is not as hot as it might have been when the season ended live but I just finished watching it on Netflix and want to know your opinions on how it ended. Any other HIMYM fans out there? 

Spoiler alert! Don't read on if you haven't watch the final season..

I'm seriously so disappointed that Ted's adorable wife ended up passing and he got together with Robin. So DUMB. I personally didn't see any chemistry between the actors. On that note, Robin and Barney were perfect for each other. Why did they have to get divorce and why did Barney end up getting some random chick pregnant at the end. Ugh. Seriously though HATED the ending. Daryl and I think it would have been best to just randomly end the series back when Barney did that epic proposal to Robin. 



  1. LOVE this look on you! I would wear this entire outfit in a second;) Also, I was disappointed at the ending of HIMYM, too. I loved the mother, and couldn't believe what they did at the end of the series.

  2. These plaid leggings are the cutest and perfect for the holiday season!

  3. The finale of HIMYM was THE worst! I felt like I had wasted my time watching the entire last season. Why all that build-up?

  4. Here. Watch this and feel better about evvvvvverything.

  5. I totally agree with you on the HIMYM finale. I was sooooooooo disappointed! I spent 8 years of my life invested in finding out Ted's wife only for them to kill her off?!?!?!?! So dumb. Plus they dragged out Barney and Robin's wedding way to long to then have them end it so quickly. I wish they would have had the wedding be an episode or two, then give us time seeing Ted date his wife. That's what I wanted from season one!

    Anyway...sorry for the rant. I'm just still upset about that! Hahaha!

  6. I love how cozy and happy you look in this! What a great outfit :)
