Ready, Set, Spring.

I have been so busy with final exams and portfolios this month, and I have missed my blog so much! Although the city isn’t quite as warm as it could be for this time of year, we are all making due with any chance we may have to dress lighter. I have one more exam this week, and then it looks as though the weather may take a turn for the better by the time my summer vacation really begins.

For this outfit I just chose to wear my super relaxed, faded Nudie Jeans paired with an oversized H&M shirt. I kept the accessories bronzed and worn looking, and stuck to a gold aviator for something relaxed and simple. I think that this overall look will be my go-to for the upcoming summer season. It is so relaxed and easy, and there is nothing better than a light, oversized t-shirt when the weather hits the 30 degree range!

I hope everyone has had a great month of April, and good luck on all of your exams!

Waiting.

I have been so busy this week that I meant I had to miss a post earlier in the week, but I suppose I should be expecting that as university finals draw nearer. What a week it has been though, lots of really fun projects I am so thrilled to be working on, and as stressful as school may get, I really do love my design classes!

Everything was starting to get warmer in the city and really clear up for a nice Spring boost. Sadly, as quickly as the sun, warmth, and melting showed up… It left. We have had so much snow in the last 20 odd hours I am beginning to forget what the roads looked like, and it was so nice to see the pavement again after months of winter darkness. Also, as much as I love my car, it really is not well suited to these conditions, and as a result will remain parked for the rest of this bad weather. This means I can stay in and catch up on a lot of little things I have to do around the house, for school, and for the blog!

This outfit was just a casual look for school, and I was really loving the combination. I recently attended an event at Simons where they gave me this bag, and I chose the camouflage – which has become my go-to tote for school. It is so on trend, and I really don’t worry about using it like I do some of my pricier leather bags. So, for as long as I have my laptop, textbooks etc to carry with me to school, this bag will be by my side!

I hope everyone is having a great Friday, and as much as we may all be waiting for Spring to come don’t let it get you down – the sun will eventually win! :)

Schoolhouse Rock.

I had a really fun time playing around in the photo studio at school the other day while snapping these photos with a classmate of mine. There are so many cool, vintage things that have accumulated in the cabinets over the years to use for various photo projects – and I was starting to think of fun ways of using them in the future! This outfit was really just about being casual, comfortable, and effortless – and really, with 8am class it needs to be! One of my all time favourite colour combinations, that I think is a total classic, is navy, white, and brown. It is a really easy colour palette to wear and put together in the morning. That, in combination with a really cozy cardigan and soft v-neck helps make the early morning design-school woes slip away. I also just bought the pants a few weeks ago from Zara, and I am totally in love with the contrast fabric on the knee! It totally gives the pants a nod to their cargo pant cousins, without being quite so bulky and overbearing. A little bit of utilitarian chic is always welcome in my wardrobe, and I think it makes for a great balance to some of the softer pieces I own! Happy hump day everyone!

 Back To Fall.

With only a few days left of summer, and a few weeks of school already having passed, I find myself getting more and more excited for the weather to cool down. There is nothing like walking around campus and seeing the leaves changing color while you rush to get the all important Americano (or two) of the day. There’s also nothing like getting back to basics – which I’ve been doing with some great pants, tops, and accessories this year. Layering and combining basics is the age old way of getting a really great outfit that looks effortless and polished – and it’s easy to put together even when you face the rush for an 8am class!
