hand chain, chicago fashion, hijab fashion 2014, double scarves

These photos were taken basically right after a week of incredibly endless mid-terms and sleepless nights, so I think you might be able to tell that I was rather gleeful (and maybe not as tired as I should be? I may or may not have tried to jump the fence of my neighbors)--but I mean how could you not when you basically had a pair of scarf-wings to play with the wind. But oh how the weather has deteriorated since then...anyone else living in Chicago and making stockpiles of soup and blankets for the upcoming polar vortex this week?! (don't say I didn't warn you)
