The Capitol...

... not in DC, but in Madison! Although most capitol buildings look alike, was that done on purpose? And lately, whenever I hear "the capitol" I think of Hunger Games! Anyways, Madison was freezing cold so I layered up with my big puffy jacket and knee-high flat boots for a bit of sightseeing. (I wish my friend would've moved to California or Florida so I could visit warmer climates!)

 The whole building was beautifully designed but I think my favorite part was these doors!

 How adorable is this necklace? My best friend gifted it for my birthday... we are two peas in a pod :) I am big things with sentimental value so this was very touching!

Jacket: Calvin Klein via TJ Maxx (old) Cardigan: Old Navy (in other colors & only $15!!) Shirt: Express (old) Jeans: Vigoss via Nordstrom Rack Boots: Carlos by Carlos Santana via TJ Maxx ($60 on clearance, score!) Scarf: H&M Belt: Loft Necklace: Gift Bracelets: Express, Target Rings: Gift and Mom's Purse: Aldo

I want to start off by saying that the tragedy of what happened in Connecticut yesterday is so heart breaking. I can't believe someone would go as far as hurting innocent people, especially children. My thoughts go out to all those affected and I really, really hope nothing like this happens again.

On a lighter note, I am writing this just an hour before I have to go take my last final of the semester! Wish me luck :) I am going to commit more of my time to this blog in the 4-5 weeks that I will have off before Spring semester starts. And I have exciting news!! I am going to be taking a little trip to Tokyo & Hong Kong in January! Words cannot describe how ecstatic I feel and I seriously cannot wait for this trip. Stay tuned for more posts soon!
