Coup de coeur: Tartan

Tartan Dress + Spike Necklace (Ebay) Picture source (Pinterest)
I was on tumblr a few days ago and half checking out blogs at the same time when I came across a lovely lady in tartan which was from the blog Something old, Something new (here is the exact post) For the next few days I was looking for tartan everything and finally focused on tartan dresses. The search lead me to pinterest an then ebay. I was looking for something cheap (so Vivienne Westwood was kind of out of the option right) I finally settled on this dress for a low 9 dollars. It came yesterday and it's lovely but being one for mini dresses, I'm going to hem it a little shorter and adjust the straps. I'm already thinking pairing it up with tights or over the knee socks in my head so I'll post a look when I get around to altering the dress (if I don't mess it up that is haha)
If you catch my tartan fever or simply want to admire more tartan looks go over to ScotWeb Tartans' Pinterest, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Les Mots

Les Mots

A little set I made for warmer weather! I'm seriously looking to get shoes like these, I really need to find the right pair though, I'll be on the hunt.

If a feeling appears, if your mind should sway.

Top (Zara), Jeans (Urban Outfitters), Jacket (H&M), Loafers (Value Village), Gold Chain Necklace, Gold Cuff and Bucket Bag (Ebay) 

Just an outfit post of what I wore yesterday to see a friend in the market. It was actually quite warm out, mind you everyone was wearing shorts and flip flops but I predicted the weather was going to drop at night so I dressed accordingly. Honestly Ottawa isn't so bad on a sunny day but I'm still itching to leave! These loafers I got at value village a few years back and I've been wearing them ever since, speaking of which I need to do a VV haul soon ^__^

Hello all, I've been idle for a few days while I got things sorted out. Mental Health is my priority at the moment! I definitely have to stay sharp. So these are a few things I have my eye on, as you can see I think leather is wearable during all seasons, no matter how ridiculous some people find it. The weather in Ottawa is really lovely although it's so strange that we go from hail to shorts wearing weather in no time. I don't even get to wear jackets or sweaters (during the day at least) anyhow I hope the weather is lovely wherever you guys are at, hopefully you enjoy what's left of the weekend :)

Weekend Reads

Nylon Magazine, Ms Magazine.

I was at Chapters dowtown the other day and I was looking for a few new reads for work and I found Ms magazine (A widely know feminst magazine). I was pretty excited! It's such a good issue, I recommend it to anyone who is interested in the issue of abortion. Hopefully I'll be able to pick up Ms every month. I also picked up Nylon with Chloe Moretz on the cover, I love her style and her look overall and her spread definitely didn't disappoint.

Hope you guys had a nice weekend!

Tie Die

Tie Die

In the spirit of Lazy I made this set. I love how comfortable vans' sneakers are so they're a great staple when I actually want to give my feet a rest. I started wearing sneakers again last year and all I can say is don't know why it took me so long!

You really want to stay inside and sleep the light away.

Blazer (Urban Outfitters), Top (Zara), Pants (Jacob), Bucket Bag (Ebay), Creepers (Ebay)

Long overdue outfit post! life has been getting me down lately so I'm trying to keep up. As you can see I'm wearing my lazy pants, whenever I wear baggy pants you better believe I'm having the laziest day. I've been looking for a new camera. Ideally I'm looking to get a "Bridge" camera. I'm nowhere ready to go DSLR yet so I thought I would at least get a better camera in the meantime though. Saving up pennies and crossing my fingers I'll be able to get it soon since I'm actually already saving up to move!

Are you guys saving up for anything that seems impossible to reach? (I definitely know that feel...)
