Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

Tired. So tired. I’ve been planning and prepping for my programs award night since September and been trying to haul ass since January.

Now that it’s three days away I am beyond stressed/tired/hungry/scrambled/excited and a hundred other emotions I’m to busy to think of.

Yesterday I got to school around 8 a.m. and had to leave at 10 p.m. only because my building had to close. The only time I left was to treat myself to a very expensive vanilla latte from Starbucks. By the time I got home it was 11 and I was up until 3 a.m. only to wake back up at 7 a.m.

Tired is an understatement and I’m very much looking forward to the comfy night in that my bed and I are going to have watching old episodes of The Twilight Zone. 

So when forcing myself to get out of bed I threw together the easiest combo I could think of and threw my hair in a messy bun using the new Goody Spin Pins I love them beyond words and the metal headband is from Urban Outfitters and was on clearance for $3. I quite liked the messy chic look I chose for today.  My top half is H&M (blazer, blouse, necklace) and without question I am wearing my TOMS which have been a savior with all the running montages my life has been filled with.

First Date

Oh the dreadful first date. You’re both excited, curious and out to prove you’re not crazy. A couple of weeks ago a young gentleman caller took me out to a pub downtown for some dinner and pool. While the date itself sparked no real “love connection” (or whatever you kids call it these days) I quite liked the outfit I threw together for it.

I originally wore these American Eagle shoes with the outfit. But after some early morning revision while getting ready for school I decided it was too much brown with my leather jacket. Today I opted out for some nude velvet wedges from my moms closet. The shoes were a little too tight for my liking, but I only had about three hours of class, so it was worth the squeeze.

Like the First of Spring

While spring has surprisingly been around for over two weeks here, today is officially the first day.

Spring is one of my favourite seasons. The colours, the fabrics and the inspiration. Here are a few of the things inspiring me for the 2012 spring season.

TOMS recently launched a ballet flat line. I already have a cream coloured pair and they are so incredibly comfy and I can’t wait to invest in more.

The colours of spring are incredible. Most take the opportunity to punch up the colours in their wardrobes, and I know I’m  one of them, but I love how spring is the perfect time to wear soft fabrics and pastels.

Maxi dresses are one my fashion obsessions. they are easy breezy and beautiful. I have only a few but wearing them make me feel so trendy.

Dresses in general. I have two closets and one of them is full of dresses. I am a serious dress enthusiast. Despite my pasty white legs I love showin’ those babies off.  My go to staple outfit is always always always a dress and jean jacket. So easy and yet so good.

Spring is just a wonderful season and I am so excited to try out some new trends.
