Artsy friends would be a great asset to my life, I reck'n

I really can't put what I'm about to say in any other words besides, "OMG I'M SO HAPPY IT WAS SUNNY TODAY!" (classy, I know.) The weather has been crazy (ie hailing - yes, hailing - on Thursday), definitely giving Canada its much deserved stereotype of "always bad weather." Except for not really, because the weather was fantastic today!

Yeah, I fully intended to take nice pictures outside, but there's this little problem called daylight savings, where the sun decides to set before I even eat dinner. I'm not a fan of this predicament.

I'm hoping that the sun stays out this week and doesn't, say, drop the h-bomb (hail, guys, hail). Kind of ironic that the weather is finally warm and I'm not allowed to wear my kilt to school, because I refuse to lower it to my knee cap. Seriously, why, teachers, why?

Sorry for the lack of posts, this week has been crazy filled with field hockey (gold medal, baby! Does it even count if I barely played? Yes, I say so.) Hopefully more posts with weekends free of field hockey and therefore outfits besides athletic attire. Yay!

Hope you guys have a sun-tastic (yeah, that's right) week! Stay bright, cheery, and fabulous! :)

I know what you mean, it was snowing on Friday. Apparently its supposed to be nice all week (I live an hour away from Toronto, so the weather should be similar...right?) I love your blazer, the frill is amazing :)

I love how you put on different colors and different prints. Great outfit :)

Mel said...

Ugh I hate the time change; it's so annoying, and really what is the purpose of it? Most of the rest of the world doesn't have to deal with that, so why are we even bothering? I love your sweater!

Gabby said...

If your not wearing you kilt, what are you wearing? Hahaha. Nice blazer and love the shoes.

Thanks for commenting!

I cannot begin to put into words my love for your shorts! Love them! You have really nice tanned legs by the way...(awkward)...LOL! True though. Just noticed. MOVING ON! I love how your mix patterns and colors! I have to say though, like you said your style evolves with time...I see that. You aren't as crazy with your ensembles as before. Not a bad thing at all, and not that it was a bad thing back then. Just noticing. Thank you for the lovely comment. I always love reading your comments. I think I might plan a webcam meet me kind of thing. About the Q&A...I don't know because I don't have many people that would ask and drop comments, so that idea would fail for now, but the webcam is being planned as I comment right now.
check out my hundredth post!

I absolutly loath the sun setting before I've even had dinner, I am a summer bunny & I always will be.

I love your colourful outfit & I especially love the detailed floral-type top. It is one of my favourite prints. :)

I am also not a fan of daylights savings. I'd much rather go to work in the dark and it be light for an hour when I get home.
