Today was so beautiful. It felt almost like Summer. ALMOST. I went barelegged for the first time this year and tried to go with a nautical theme when it came to my outfit. Went for a stroll and got an iced chai and sat in the sun. Is there anything better than feeling sun on your skin? Pure vitamin D. It ain't junk science, guys.
H&M dress, vintage necklace, lots of bracelets, pale legs that could use a touch of fake tanner, maybe. The drawstring waist on this dress doesn't cut the most flattering figure but, eh, it's comfortable. I think it's too big, there's a lot of excess fabric. I suppose I need to start trying things on before I buy but there's always the longest lines at the H&M fitting rooms, and shopping makes me so impatient.
My hair is driving me nuts lately. I want to grow out my layers but then they get a ton of split ends and I trim them and I'm back at square one. Hair is literally the worst, it's my least favourite beauty topic to write about, and my least favourite thing to spend money or energy on. I'd love to be a millionaire and just have someone else take care of it for me, because mine drives me nuts.
Today's bracelets, L-R: Banana Republic, no idea, H&M, H&M, vintage, gift shop in Nova Scotia, Etsy. (For a mini-shopping guide re: gold jewelry for Spring, check out my xo article here)
Beauty products from today. I love Marc Jacobs original scent so much. I'm sure I already wrote about it but it really is the perfect Spring scent. Gardenias smell so lovely. Kielh's lip balm, classic, like the added benefit of SPF. A bit of that Stila lip stain, that doesn't actually last very long but the colour is pretty when you first put it on. YSL Touch Eclat, because we lost an hour of sleep last night and this makes it look like I didn't.
And yesterday this came into my life at a reasonable price (Sonic Boom on Bathurst St., word). Oh, Alex Chilton. I miss you.
How's the weather where you are? It's supposed to be beautiful here all week and I only have 3 days of classes so I'll be out enjoying it. Goodbye, the sludge and misery of Wintertime in the city!
