Sunshine Brights


There I go with that automatic timer again. At least I didn't confine it to the balcony this time! Rather instead, I found a semi-secluded place downtown where I had only 2 awkward run-in's with curious people wondering what the heck I was doing. As mentioned in yesterday's post I was feeling excessively cheerful & decided to celebrate the sun with some bright wardrobe choices & lip colour. Pulled together rather quickly,  I chose my favourite turquoise top from Nastygal & went from there. For another pop of colour I added my velvet skirt from Club Monaco, tights so my legs wouldn't freeze, & a blazer to replace the confines of my winter coat. Add to that gold accessories, round sunnies, bright pink lipstick, et voila.

I had a lovely afternoon strolling around, people watching & wandering in & out of shops. I managed to restrict myself to one teeny-tiny purchase from H&M, which I'll share with you later this week. In the meantime, I'm planning another little sunshine excursion (thank you weather gods!) today, followed by a productive evening of studying. I spent last night getting all my coursework organized & am consequently both proud as a peacock about it & significantly less anxious. Win-win :) I'm so looking forward to having it all over with soon... only a few more months until freedom!

Cheesy Smile :)

  10. hehe i always feel embarrassed when people walk past and they stare at you and wondering why you're taking photos, but i think it's worth the embarrassment because you will probably never see them again :)
    i love the outfit!
    and the shorts are gorgeous
    i actually really like the colour of the lipstick - it's unconventional and i think it would really suit you

  20. love your bright colored top and lipstick. at first i thought that you were wearing silk made shorts but then i looked closely and read your text and saw that it was a velvet skirt.

  21. I love your skirt! I often wonder how those who take their pictures outside cope! I would be so embarrassed if lots of people were around, as some bloggers seem to take the photos in really busy areas, yet no one else seems to be in the shots? The lipstick is so bright too, how does it come out on the lips, is it as bright or does it tone down? xx
