Don't Slip

Jacket - Jennifer Lopez for Kohls | Shirt - Zara | Jeans - BDG from Urban Outfitters | Boots - H&M | Belt - Asos

I find it easy to post in January, and for the longest time I wasn't really sure why.  Finally, I think I've narrowed it down to three reasons:
1) I'm always on break in January
Back when I was high school, this was a bit tougher because I usually had to go back to school on the 2nd or 3rd of January.  But this year and last year, I've had about a month of time off from school.  I have lots of time to take pictures, and luckily, my mom (aka my personal photographer) usually has some time off as well.
2) New Years Resolutions
I think like most bloggers, at the beginning of each year I tell myself that I'm going to post more.  And in January, I'm not bad at this resolution.  Even in February I'm able to keep up pretty well.  It's in March when Midterms hit is when I start lagging.
3) Christmas gifts
The third and final reason I find it easy to post in January is because I almost always get some new clothes for Christmas that I'm excited to show off.  Take these boots for example; I've been drooling over these since, at least, November.  I've been rather obsessed with patent leather lately, so of course I fell in love with these.  When my lovely aunt gave these to me for Christmas, I instantly wanted to shoot them.  But with all of the snow and ice arriving here, I had to wait for the sidewalks to clear (I could just tell that these boots have almost no traction, and that I would surely slip and fall if I wore these while it's icy).  While waiting to shoot these, though, it gave me time to shoot some of my other Christmas gifts, thus adding to the number of posts I was able to do this month.  I was happy to eventually be able to shoots these boots because I've known that I wanted to pair them with this jacket; this faux fur coat has long been a favorite of mine, but I just don't have room to take it back to London with me when I go back next week.  It was a bit odd wearing it in Montana, I felt like I stood out like a sore thumb, but I'm also really happy with how this look turned out.

Well, that's it for now.  Like I said earlier, I go back to London early next week, so this will probably be my last Montana post until I come back in the summer.  I've had a really nice time being back here and being able to visit with friends and family, but I'm also really excited for what this next semester has in store for me.  Be sure to stay tuned, as I have lots of exciting things planned!
