HOLY SWEATERS

Oversized sweater — Free People; denim shorts — Forever 21; purse — vintage Gucci; sandals — Nordstrom Rack

I looove the structure of this sweater (loose and hanging in all the right places) but it’s far too hole-y to wear in any season other than the summer. I don’t think I own anymore long-sleeved shirts (though, I am planning to make this DIY one from a pair of leggings http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nqE_l872dLU), and even if I did, I imagine it to be crazy uncomfy underneath that sweater..

Y’all can imagine what it feels like on a windy day in this one..

No Pants Season

It totally makes sense that the perfect sunnies for my face happen to be from the men’s section. Not because I have the facial structure of a man (though I love me some androgyny), but because my head is huge. It’s a family thing. Whatever.

It was actually between these or reflective aviators in brown/yellow… but it just made everything too beige. What with the brown hair and tan skin–that would just make my face look like a piece of poo. I love tans and all, but there is a limit to how much brown you can wear in an outfit before you start looking like a walking log of poo.

ANYWAYS. No Pants Season is here, and the universe is making sense again. Brb while I live in denim cutoffs and billowy tops.

All. Grey. Everything.

I’m ’bout to sound self-righteous and snobby but Aritzia to me is equivalent to how Phoebe from Friends felt about Pottery Barn–dope stuff but a cop out from hunting random goodies and putting them together to create your own smorgasbord of style. My commitment to Aritzia used to be near religious, and I thought I was this lil PYT running around in TNA spandex and that Wilfred tunic everybody owned (which I had in four different colours.. it’s whatevs.)

Honestly tho, I can’t say much has changed because my addictions have only transcended to other institutions…

e.g. Amazon.com has got my heart on lock-down.

Summer in Vancouver is like some sort of mean joke.. it’ll be pissing rain in the morning, sun’s a-blazing after lunch, and torrential downpour after work. Not even the least bit clever, people were donning June as June-uary (ha ha, get it… because it’s cold as fuck in January.)

But above all, if you’re living in Vancouver in general, y’all will be needing pants that fit like a glove and a cute purse.

The best part about this jacket is that I’m born in 1991. And that it’s a little boy’s jacket.

Bought these boyfriend jeans a size up for a loose sweat pant feel… but they’re getting mighty fitted as of late! Talk about indications of gym and diet neglect..

So so ono

I’ll be writing about my game-changing trip to Hawaii soon… all I can say right now is that it was amazing. I love Hawaii and I will definitely be back..

I’m currently preoccupied with an application to study abroad… shit is cray and is happening! I’m so excited and scared at the same time. I was initially going to a 7 month program of teaching French in France but an exchange seems a little safer, and I plan to meet up with one of my best friends after my semester is over in May to go backpacking through Europe. Sometimes the universe is good to you, ya know?

*crossing my fingers* I really hope I get in! Academic references are set. GPA set. Just all the other little things to go..

In the meantime, I will be listening to some island jams (God bless Island 98.5) while I’m about to start my summer semester, and hammer out this application!

Good luck, and love to y’all!
