This week's Friday's Fancies theme with Long Distance Loving is holiday party perfect. I've been admiring that black Lilly dress for some time now - the draped lace and shiny beading on the bottom are holiday-perfect, yet the black color keeps it subdued. I did add plenty of color in the jewelry though - colors are fun and perfect for parties! Simple black heels and a quirky Kate Spade clutch complete the look.

We had our last trips of the semester last weekend, and I went to Prague! Prague is a big city in the Czech Republic. It is one of my favorite places I've been to, and am hoping I make it back there for New Year's Eve! It reminded me a little of Budapest, but more colorful, pretty, and less spread out. I ate goulash and sausages, and tried a trdlnik roll (a baked roll of dough covered in cinnamon sugar). We held a pub crawl with one of the companies there one night and took everyone to a five-story club the next night. The Christmas markets were open during the day, which were fun and charming, and seemed like a perfect fit for the city's atmosphere. Oh, and they had a lot of Starbucks - so of course I filled my addiction with some iced coffee over the weekend!

Super casual outfit today. Last week I stopped in at a boutique in Florence and got this adorable baggy winter sweater! It is perfect for the Christmas season with the reindeer and tree. The hearts are cute too :) the whole design is printed on the back as well! It's super cozy and nice to wear while running errands around the city.

A few interesting things I've found around the internet lately....
Adam Brody is coming back to TV. My 7th grade self (and let's be real, my current self) is beyond excited to see Seth Cohen on the small screen. Adam Brody will guest star in a future episode of New Girl, according to Refinery 29. Woo! (Also...doesn't he look so adorable in that photo with a puppy?! Guy knows a way to a girl's heart.)
Coca-Cola won't be advertising for a while. Instead, the company will put all its advertising money for relief toward the Philippines. That's pretty awesome.
National Geographic has a Tumblr page full of unpublished photos. There are a lot of cool photos on there, I definitely recommend checking it out.
Have a wonderful week!
