My Favorite Outfits of 2014 and Year in Review

As 2014 comes to a close, here is just a review of my favorite outfits of the year! 
This year has been pretty fun, I've had another 2 semesters of college, I got my first car, I worked as a ballet dancer and as an office temp over the summer, interned at an art museum this past semester (where I learned so much! For my career and just life stuff like how to spend at least 12 hours working while taking 18 credits), learned how to drive in the snow, tried my best to blog as much as possible, and have spent a lot of time with great people! Thank you all so much for supporting my blog this past year, here's to another year!

New Year's Eve

It's almost 2015?!? 
That's insane, that also makes me realize how quickly college is going by. Since my boyfriend turned 21 in November, for some reason I keep thinking we can go to big events together for New Years. But, I just miss being 21 for New Years with my birthday being January 8th, so I don't know why I have been thinking that. Anyways, we will be going to a friend from high school's house and I plan on wearing my favorite black dress with leather and chiffon and sparkly accessories! 

Coat: J. Crew Factory (old, retail version), Dress: Julie Brown Designs (old), Tights: Anthropologie (old), Shoes: Anne Klein (really old), Necklace: Cara Accessories via Rue La La, Earrings: Francesca's, Headband: J. Crew (old), Ring: Kate Spade (old)

Hunter Boot Collaboration with Julia!

Today I am styling Hunter boots along side Julia of Little Miss Haute Couture! Her blog is so cute, and she has been so great working with me taking forever to get pictures done with the end of the semester craziness! We are actually both wearing kid's size Hunter boots. I paired my fuschia Hunters with leather pants and my favorite herringbone vest. Julia paired hers with this adorable bird printed blouse, jeans and horsehair crossbody bag!
Check out Julia's post here :)
My outfit:

Shirt: Ralph Lauren, Vest: J. Crew Factory, Leather leggings: Tilly's kid's section (bought for $6!), Boots: Hunter, Pearl earrings: gift from my parents

Julia's outfit:

Insta Lately

Just some recent Instagram posts, follow along @cara_194
I hope everyone had a great Christmas! I spent the day with my family opening presents, walking the dogs, and having a great home made dinner! 
December 26th is always kind of a sad day, but I don't really stop celebrating Christmas until New Years anyways :)
Taking it back to finals week, it involved a lot of caffeine
It may have also involved ice cream for breakfast....
I won this gorgeous needlepoint initial cuff from a York Design Co giveaway!
I've been enjoying everything Christmassy since I've been home! And my best friend Hannah got me this mug :)
Wrapping presents for days
I've said it before and I'll say it again, I love peppermint mochas during Christmas time!
Because you probably didn't see enough of these mugs in front of Christmas trees yesterday...#guilty
