This has been a week of pants. Because why not? I got this top from an Orb warehouse sale a few years ago. My green cardigan is from Ross Dress For Less and my black pants are from Old Navy. My green leaf necklace is from UBC and my green earrings are from Car Free Day on Main Street. My matching bracelet is from Dollarama and my green ring is from Greek Day on Broadway. And I totally left my ring in my office and forgot about it. I didn’t realize it until I was already at the bus stop, suddenly aware of my naked finger. That ring is my blingiest one, so now my weekend will be filled with less bling than it otherwise could have. I’ll have to make up for it in some other way.
I went with classic black and white today. This top is from Costa Blanca. My friend gave it to me for my birthday a few years ago. My black sweater is from Forever 21 and my black pants are from Old Navy. I think black pants and a black sweater are two essential components of any wardrobe. But I’m glad I don’t have a dress code that requires me to wear them on a daily basis like I did at Jacob. My long necklace is from Payless. I remember when I was walking down Main Street on Car Free Day, looking at the jewellery in one of the booths, the woman there said she liked my necklace and asked where I got it. When I told her Payless, she was like “What? Payless? Really?” in a confused and judgemental tone. I thought “Really, you’re judging me for where I bought my jewellery even though you yourself said it was nice?”. I didn’t buy anything from her. I did buy these white earrings from another vendor at Car Free Day though. I got my bracelet at Carnaval del Sol on Sunday and my ring at UBC a while ago.
I don’t know where I got this light pink top from. I’m going to take a guess and say Urban Planet? The navy blue cardigan is from Bryan’s and the black pants are from Old Navy. I got my necklace from my favourite street vendor at Greek Day on Broadway and I got my earrings from another vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street. My bracelet is from Suzy Shier. My black ring is from my favourite street vendor who was also at Carnaval Del Sol. I thought I would give my ring finger a rest and accessorize my middle finger instead.
I got this light blue and orange floral top at Bryan’s at Lansdowne Centre. I haven’t shopped there in a while, but I used to buy stuff there all the time. My black pants are from Old Navy at Richmond Centre. My blue sweater and my blue bracelet are from the Sears that used to be at Richmond Centre. My blue flower necklace is from UBC and my green ring is from Greek Day. I’m still in search of a blue one.
It was kind of cold this morning so I actually wore pants. I got them from La Vie En Rose Aqua at Richmond Centre. My purple top is from the Plenty warehouse sale that took place at the Vancouver Convention Centre during Easter long weekend. My black sweater is from the Sears that used to be at Richmond Centre. I got my necklace from a vendor at Greek Day on Broadway a few weeks ago. That same vendor is at literally every street festival I go to. And I always end up buying stuff from there. I got this new black ring from them yesterday at Carnaval del Sol at Concord Pacific Place. I got my dangly purple earrings from a vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street last month. My black bracelet is from Claire’s at Richmond Centre and my purple ring is from Boca Raton Designs at Greek Day. I feel like maybe a should keep a thicker sweater in my office because it’s colder inside than it is outside. Or maybe a blanket?
I probably should have worn pants since it was actually kind of cold this morning but oh well. Like I said, I’m just going to continue wearing dresses because I can. Unless someone can direct me to a store where I can buy a pair of pants that are comfortable and look good and fit well. As far as I’m aware, none exist. I got this dress at Suzy Shier. It’s not new, I just haven’t worn it to work before. It came with a belt, but I don’t know what the hell happened to that belt. One of the belt loops on the side of the dress is broken. I think it may have been torn when I bought it, so I got like 10% off or something. I figured it would tear eventually and I’m not a belt person anyway. This navy blue cardigan is new, I got it at La Vie En Rose. So maybe it’s technically lounge wear, but can you even tell? My green leaf necklace is from UBC, my green zipper earrings are from Claire’s, and my green ring is from Greek Day.
I know it’s hot as hell today, but I didn’t feel like shaving so I’m wearing pants. Besides, I said I didn’t want to let the weather dictate my choice of clothing. If I’d read the news before I left the house this morning, I probably would’ve worn something rainbow coloured to celebrate marriage equality in the States. I got this top at a department store called Red Apple in Revelstoke. I went there with my family a couple years ago because my dad had a reunion with some of his high school buddies. I don’t think I could ever live in a small town. Shopping wise, I was like “This is it?”. Red Apple is kind of like a Winners or a Walmart, but smaller with not as much stuff. But I managed to pick up few nice things there, this top included. My mint green cardigan is from Jacob and my black pants are from Winners. My Swarovski necklace was a Christmas gift from my cousins. My bracelet is from Sears and my ring is from UBC. These earrings are new. I got them at Payless, along with some other BOGO jewellery over the weekend. I guess maybe I’ll shave tomorrow and start wearing dresses again. Maybe.
I’m not dressed very summery today. But screw the weather, I’ll wear what I want. Besides, temperatures are supposed to soar this weekend, so I’ll save the summery dresses for that. I got this top at an Orb warehouse sale. The red sweater is from Sears and the pants are from Winners. My Nintendo heart necklace is from Fan Expo Vancouver, my bracelet is from Dollarama, and my ring is from UBC. My earrings are new, I got them from a vendor at Car Free Day on Main Street on Sunday. The same vendor I got the blue earrings from, who called me back to his booth to offer me a free third pair of earrings if I bought the first two. I touched up my nail polish with a clear coat of polish. Do they look shinier now? I realized I should have painted them red since Canada Day is coming up next week. I don’t want to remove the polish and repaint them since they actually look decent. But it’s okay, I have plenty of red jewellery and clothing to make up for it.
No, your eyes do not deceive you, I am indeed wearing pants. I heard it would be cloudy and overcast today so I thought I would take a bit of a break from the dresses. As much as I would love to live the rest of my life without having to wear pants, it’s just not that feasible. At least I got the opportunity to wear this shiny leopard print top from Ross Dress For Less. Yay, my outfit matches my Winners iPhone case. I should probably switch up my phone case at some point, I’ve had this one on there for a while now. But it’s just so sturdy and well fitted, not like other cases that can be flimsy and nondurable. I love my phone, and when you love something, you want to protect it. Since my top is shiny, I paired it with my shiny Aritzia sweater. I just got these pants from Winners. They’re not full length pants, because I refuse to wear full length pants in the summer. Apparently I’m a size large when it comes to pants at Winners. My leopard print heart necklace is from Payless, my earrings are from Claire’s, and my ring is from UBC. I got my shiny bracelet at Car Free Day on Main Street on Sunday. Shiny outfits don’t just have to be for special occasions. Sometimes you just want to add a little sparkle on a typical Wednesday work day.
