Absent Without Leave

Aunt's dress. Minnentonka moccasins. Gap tee. Gifted jewelry.

I've been AWOL for quite a while, but I can honestly say that it has not been by choice. I'm on the Orientation Executive at my University and let's just say that it is A LOT of work. Between my full time summer job, Orientation planning and finding time to see friends not on Orientation Exec, it's hard to find time to sleep, let alone blog. I've worn some pretty wonderful outfits in the last while, and unfortunately have not photographed them. Once school starts I hope to enter a regular blogging period, but until then, I hope all my followers will remain patient as I juggle my last week of work, and two weeks of Orientation.

This dress used to be my aunt's but she didn't like it, so I kindly welcomed it into my closet. It bunches up awkwardly at the stomach which is rather a shame and I can see why my aunt did not want it anymore, but sometimes, I don't care about wearing flattering clothes.

Have a wonderful week!

Shoo-bop sha wad-da wad-da yipp-it-y boom de boom

H&M top, Forever 21 skirt, Geox flats, Hat from the Bay, gifted jewelry.

I think the colours in this outfit describe my life very well at the moment; bright, loud, and busy! I thought the summer would mean more blog updates, but I think that the school year will prove to be better at my updating.

I got a of compliments on this shirt. It's so much fun, especially since the front reminds me of fish scales, but the back is just mesh. This whole outfit just makes me want to go and sing Grease songs and dance. There's something about wearing bright colours that just puts me in such a good mood!

Have a great day everyone!

jar of hearts

UO skirt. Levi's jacket from UO. Gifted jewelry. Club Monaco blouse. Geox flats. MAC lipstick.

I'm finally caught up with my backlogged posts. Yay!
I love this colour combination. Pink and coral really are lovely together. This Levi's jacket is my current favourite summer jacket to wear on cool days. Not only is it a beautiful colour, but the shorter length makes it perfect to wear with high waisted skirts and shorts.
The day I wore this outfit, it was incredibly humid, hence my wild hair. I'm really loving today's weather though. Nice and cool with the perfect breeze; it's really beginning to feel like the end of summer, and while some frown at that, I'm rather glad because I'm excited to start the new school year.

Hope you're all having a fantastic week!
