white rabbit legs

I hardly ever wear pants, so why would I ever wear white pants? I don't know the answer to that. I never saw myself as someone who would dare to wear white pants, but when I found this pair in my mom's closet, I just had to take the chance. Lately I've been trying to take chances wearing things I wouldn't normally, and it's proving really fun and exciting to see what I can come up with. I suppose I was kind of scared to wear these pants, simply because they're white, and white isn't particularly a colour I like wearing, especially when it comes down to pants. Yet, the thrill of putting them on and going about my daily life in them gave me a huge boost of confidence in trying other new things.
Furthermore, the white/yellow combination seemed perfect to me. Very reflective of the extraordinary spring weather.

spring rolls and biscotti

Last night I went out to dinner downtown with my friend, Chris. We had delicious spring rolls, and sweet and sour chicken (so so good). We finished off the evening by eating cookies/biscotti and drinking Starbucks coffee whilst sitting in a Chapters overlooking a gorgeous old building. Overall, a very fun evening.

Ps. Some of the books you all mentioned reading sounded really interesting. If you have any book recommendations please do mention them. I want to make the most of my free time this summer and read as much as I can.

minimalist

While most days my outfits have me wearing lots of layers or being covered in accessories, there are times when I like wearing a very simple outfit. No jewelry or layers, nothing fancy with my hair, just a dress, some shoes, and a simple pair of tights.
Minimalism is rather wonderful sometimes.

I'm currently reading Moby Dick. It feels so nice to read a book that's not for school.
What are you currently reading? Or What would you like to read?

wild animals in the city

I think that everyone owns a piece of clothing, that for some reason they only wear once every blue moon. As much as I love this skirt, it's that piece of clothing for me. I only recently made it, but it's just something that I might not wear again for a couple months or years. It's not a matter of not knowing how to restyle it, something that isn't an issue, it's just not something I'd want to wear a lot of times.

Do you have an article of clothing like that?

ray of purple light

I bought this purple AA skirt at an AA rummage sale in November. I waited 8.5 hours to get into the sale, so when I saw this skirt, I just bought it. I didn't really think about it much. I was so exhausted from waiting in line, that I literally bought everything that fit me and that I thought was decent looking. I've worn this skirt a couple times before, but I just didn't post outfit photos cause I didn't have time to take them. Love this skirt though. It's super comfy and purple is my favourite colour, so it all works out well.

My best friend is a year younger than me, so she's graduating from high school this year, which means prom. I spent the day helping her look for a dress. Seven and a half hours later we came home empty handed. I never realised how hard it is to find a prom dress. I was lucky last year, I literally walked into a store, tried on the first dress I saw, and fell in love with it. I hope my best friend finds a dress soon. :)

After an exhausting day of being on my feet for approximately 6 of those 7.5 hours, I really want to just go watch a movie or curl up with a good book. Have an awesome weekend everyone!

flower vomit

Ever since I was small I've just adored flowers. They're just so delicate and beautiful, the colours are numerous, and the way they look after a rainstorm is simply divine. Which is why today I felt like combining a bunch of floral prints together. This outfit definitely says spring to me.
On other news, I spent the bigger part of the day spring cleaning. After two months of sitting hidden in my room writing papers and studying, a good clean-up was needed. I spent the evening in the mall with my best friend drinking Starbucks and looking at pretty dresses. What a perfect evening. :)

Have a great day!
