Around Town

Hi all,
Sorry its been awhile since I last posted. I've been adjusting to  my crazy new schedule. Working full time and going to school at night is not easy, let me tell you. And I feel this new unjustified pressure to dress well everyday now that I am at "Fashion School". I know no one is expecting it but I feel it any ways. What even crazier is that I m feeling a need to dress more casual, this is something I am not good at. I love heels, dresses, skirts, tights, blouses, skinny jeans, ect. But at a community college this is not the case. Everyone is dress more casual. I mean I love a great pencil skirt, how many of you have worn a pencil skirt to a 3 hour lecture? Its more stressful than the schooling. Okay maybe thats a bit much but its weird. Well yesterday I decided screw it I didn't finally become okay with dressing however I wanted just to change it for school. Casual be damned! Here's some of my latest outfits:

Drinks with the girls:

Dress: Joe Fresh $25
Tight: American Apparel $16
Shoes: Aldo
Necklaces: Both Thrifted
Earrings: Coombs Country Market $5
Cuff: Thrifted $2

Going away party for Claudia at Yaletown Brew Pub, Opus Lounge, and Bar None:
Tank Top: American Apparel 2 for $22
Skirt: Le Chateau $60(xmas gift card)
Jacket: H&M $25
Tights: American Apparel $16
Shoes: Aldo $60
Umbrella: Shoppers $12
Necklace: Aldo $15
Cuff: Thrifted $2
Earrings: Hong Kong Street Market $2
Clutch: Gift from my Man's parents

Running around town and going to class:

Jacket: H&M $25
T-shirt(underneath): American Apparel $15
Skirt: American Apparel $20
Tight: American Apparel $16
Shoes: Aldo $60
Scarf: Chapters $15
Cuff: Thrifted $2
Bag: Le Chateau $30

Side note: I never shop at American Apparel anymore but its good for basics. Also it has been really cold lately but a trick I learned is to wear two pairs of tight at the same time. It will keep you toasty warm when outside but you wont over heat when inside. 

Well I'm back to my studies.
See ya soon,
