tumblr

I finally got myself a tumblr because it's easier to update than a fashion blog, so while you all wait for posts on here, you can just head on over to my tumblr and see what I'm up to.


New post tomorrow!

hello there polka dot sunshine

I've noticed that for the past week my outfits have consisted of way too much black, therefore, yesterday after spending a pile of money on school books, I decided to spend some more money and buy this red polka dotted dress from H&M. Thankfully, it was on sale so it didn't really contribute to the growing hole in my pocket.
It's funny how when school starts up I start shuffling back to my usual scholarly looks. I just don't feel like experimenting with different styles that much because I have so many other things to focus on. But the coming autumn months have me excited because I can't wait to wear warm cuddly sweaters and circle skirts, layers of scarves and socks, donning a stack of books under one arm and a coffee cup in the other whilst on my way to class.

Ps. My updates will be much slower now because between all the things that come with the school year I just don't have the energy or time to update each day, so about 3/4 posts a week.

back to the books

I am back! YES, yes I am. After a week of cheering, losing my voice, getting very little sleep, living off bagels, candy and other random food products, dancing way into the night, all I can say is that I would gladly do it all over again. I had the most amazing week being a frosh (orientation) leader, I met so many incredible people, and I could literally spend hours gushing about what a wonderful time I had, but my blog isn't about that, so I'll just sum it up in a couple letters: O-M-F-G!!!!!

It was the first day of school today, and after my summer, I'm glad to return to the books. As exhausting as it will get soon, I do love school. Sitting in lectures, reading books, rushing around campus from class to class, napping on the subway on the way to university, coffee runs, meeting new friends, party nights, impromptu lunches....etc, oh I just love it all.

Sorry for my rants, my thoughts just aren't collected right now. All the excitement you know. :)

a vision

This is a scheduled post! I'm currently a frosh (orientation) leader at my university. I will be gone from September 3rd to the 11th so I will not be able to comment on any blogs during that time period. I hope you all comment on my posts nonetheless and I will comment back when I get home! Have an super duper week!

While my blog is primarily a fashion blog, I do enjoy posting non-outfit photos. Photography is a great passion of mine, and I think there is something amazing about being able to express yourself through photographs. Here are a few photographs that I've taken in the last little while.

zip zip zippy zip

This is a scheduled post! I'm currently a frosh (orientation) leader at my university. I will be gone from September 3rd to the 11th so I will not be able to comment on any blogs during that time period. I hope you all comment on my posts nonetheless and I will comment back when I get home! Have an super duper week!

Many times I start putting together an outfit and end up with something completely different than what I planned. This outfit is one of those cases. Originally I was wearing a floral silk skirt, but I noticed this denim zipper skirt next to it, and decided to see what I could make of it. I think it looks incredible as a dress, very fun and quirky. The blazer was definitely too hot for today, but this was an experimental outfit, so it was okay for the little time that I wore it.
I'm also wearing my new Keds. Can't wait to try these out with my ruffle socks from American Apparel.

black and white

I'm excited to announce that the winner of my Lucky Brand Earrings giveaway is Bea from Healthy Obsessions. In case anyone is wondering, the winner was chosen randomly! Anyways, congratulations, I'll be contacting you ASAP for your contact details.

This is my last post before I go away for a week. I'm going to be a frosh (orientation) leader at my university and since I don't live on campus normally, for the week I'm going to be able to stay in residence. Therefore, I will not have access to my laptop or my camera, and my outfits aren't going to be exactly blog worthy either, as I will be stuck in a frosh leader shirt and a pair of shorts. Anyways, during that time period I will have a few scheduled posts so I hope you all comment even though I won't be able to comment back until next Saturday (the 11th on September). Going to miss the blogging world!

I've been wanting to do a white and black outfit for quite some time now. No colourful accents or anything. I absolutely love those socks though. I found a picture of myself when I was 3 wearing similar socks. I guess we never truly grow up.
