Leaves are made for matching

Massimo Dutti shirt • Zara Jeans • Cypres heels • Forever 21 necklace
If you are seeing this post, that must mean my concentration potion has completely run out. I don’t think it has ever taken me this long to write a two thousand word essay, but with a syllabus that’s contradicting itself  on every new page and only a very vague description of what we need to type out this essay is far from finished. I’m at a thousand five hundred right now. And I am writing a blog post, desperately trying to avoid having to look at my syllabus or ppt presentation any more. This is going to take forever, isn’t it?
Don’t worry, there’s some small but exciting news from this front too. Fall has fully hit the city! At home, the leaves are still looking pretty fresh and green, but just around my corner in the city hundreds of tiny little yellow leaves have fallen down on the street. Fall always comes faster in the city it seems. My scarf matched the colors perfectly, but since I actually just wanted to showcase my pretty new faux-pearl necklace I had to take it off. This necklace is the epitome of statement necklaces for me at this moment. I have quite a few today, but this one definitely gets the most wears. I just love it (otherwise I wouldn’t have bought it)! 
Okay guys, I am starting to feel a little guilty and those Word and PowerPoint logos in my down bar aren’t really helping either.  I should get started again, and hopefully I’ll be able to wrap this thing up before dinner. Though, I really don’t know what I am doing, haha. This is going soooooo wrong.

    Love this outfit! The shape of the jeans works really well on you, and your legs look about a thousand miles long! Good luck with the essay πŸ™‚ I once had an essay to write at uni that was the most difficult thing I've ever written – it was on philosophy that I totally didn't understand, and I think it took about two weeks of solid work, and I still didn't understand! But it turned out to be the best mark I got?! So that might happen to you too πŸ™‚

    damn girl, you are rocking those jeans!

  5. 17 October 2013 / 20:34

    Oh Nikki, I absolutely hate when professors contradict themselves. Do they not re-read what they wrote to ensure stuff like this doesn't happen!? Guess not…

    Any who, love your outfit as always! You look terrific in the wide-leg jeans. Wish I could pull them off, but they just make me look stumpy haha πŸ™‚

    IK WIL DIE BROEK! En hopelijk heb je niet meer te lang moeten werken πŸ˜‰

  7. 17 October 2013 / 21:52

    Mooie omgeving! Is die paper nu in orde geraakt? Gewoon telkens even stoppen en er dan weer een stuk aan breien :p

  8. 18 October 2013 / 00:14

    Oh man I know that feeling while writing essays. It's the worst! I wish you the best of luck finishing it up though.

    Anyway, I love how perfectly autumnal this outfit is! The leaves in the background are all so pretty too. Those jeans make your legs look 100 miles long. It's awesome! Such a cute look.

  9. 18 October 2013 / 00:20

    Good luck with your writing!

    And, I love the outfit πŸ™‚

  10. 18 October 2013 / 06:57

    Love the pants! En de titel kon ik niet anders dan zingen.. Komop schrijven aan de papers!

  11. 18 October 2013 / 08:14

    Ik vind het hele leuke outfit. De broek staat je echt prachtig, zo'n lange benen!! Parels zijn indeed een musthave!

  12. 18 October 2013 / 08:31

    Hope you managed to get your essay finished! It doesn't sound like fun… πŸ™

    Your outfit looks great though! I really like the bright yellow scarf, and those jeans are perfect on you they make your legs look soooo long!

    I LOVE the pictures! It's so refreshing seeing another red head embrace their hair, rather than shying away from it.

  17. 18 October 2013 / 16:10

    man wat sta jij goed met zo'n flair jeans! ik vind de jeans echt prachtig, maakt je benen gigantisch lang! en het is ook duidelijk te zien dat jij een herfsttype bent! ah ja de essays, het zal niet te laatste zijn! ze hebben mij slapeloze nachten bezorgd :)! maar het komt allemaal goed, geloof mij

  18. 18 October 2013 / 17:00

    Hij is bijna klaar! Maar omdat hij meetelt voor 3/20 punten wil ik hem helemaal in orde hebben. En dankjewel! Veel mensen vinden deze jeans leuk, maar ik krijg er ook véél gekke blikken mee op school, haha.

  19. 18 October 2013 / 17:02

    I'm nearly done! I don't think I've ever put this much time into such a small essay. But it counts for quite a large part of my final grade so it's aaaaaaall worth it to me!

  20. 18 October 2013 / 17:03

    Nog 500 woorden, maar ik heb de "blueprint" voor die tekst al, dus het is gewon nog uitschrijven. Maar na de zware les statistiek vandaag ga ik vanavond lekker niets doen! πŸ˜‰

  21. 18 October 2013 / 17:04

    This guy doesn't even make his own PowerPoint presentations, so I don't think he did… Pretty annoying, and everyone is freaking out on Facebook because he isn't answering emails quickly either and the deadline is on Tuesday. I decided to just do what I think is best and go for it πŸ™‚

  22. 18 October 2013 / 17:07

    Haha, I had the same feeling about my bachelor paper last year and after I turned it in I was 90% sure I was going to have to re-write during the summer. But guess what? My jury was very enthusiastic about it! Either those people had no idea what they were talking about, or I am just too much of a perfectionist. Philosophy is a nasty one. I had to take that course obligatory for three years. Always succeeded my exam by pure luck. I thought it was the absolute worst!

    πŸ™‚ that's how I got through undergrad. Popcorn is a good one, lots of it and tempting

  24. 18 October 2013 / 18:29

    I've had essays like that too! I prefer the ones that fly by, but sometimes you just get stuck. Taking a break to write something else is usually a good idea! I like your jeans! I've always loved really dark wash jeans.

    Okay, Nikki I am not kidding you when I say that I have never seen anyone look SO GOOD in flare jeans as you. Holy crap! I am so jealous of how fabulous you look in them! Please wear these every day for the rest of your life <333

  30. 19 October 2013 / 01:03

    Good luck with everything, I definitely know what it's like. On another note, this is a wonderful outfit for the season. I love stripes. The touch of yellow and the outstanding beautiful colour of your hair makes it all so pretty for autumn.

    Oh no… I definitely have been there. You should up your reward to something like a brownie. Mini muffins? Slices of pie? You deserved that cookie feast – congrats on finishing! πŸ™‚

  40. 24 October 2013 / 23:49

    I just discovered your blog, but I'll definitely be checking back for more fabulous outfits. I love this so much – the scarf and trench coat makes this such a classy look.

    Zo'n leuke setting voor een herfstpost πŸ™‚ mooie outfit ook! Hopelijk is de essay tijdig afgeraakt πŸ˜€

  43. 29 October 2013 / 21:01

    Thank you! There's already a new one on my plate, but this one seems to go much smoother πŸ™‚ Already wrote 2/3 of it in less than two hours tonight so I am very happy! ^^
