crayola tendencies

Primary colours, woohoo! Spent a great bulk of the day at the mall, running errands, including stalking the Apple store to play with their big, shiny toys. I've decided that I love the colours of the new Ipod nanos, and I plan on buying tights in these very colours. (On another note, I don't understand the purpose of video cameras in an Ipod? So random. But I guess Apple kind of is. Have you tried all their Apps? There's one for, like, everything.)

I basically love tights, which have become a staple in my wardrobe. For some reason, most people don't have mustard-coloured tights and feel the need to give me dirty looks? I mean, you're just jealous your legs don't look like Bart Simpsons'. Pffft..

And what would a post be without the mention of weather? (Give me a break, I'm from Canada! ..Just poking fun at you Canada, don't you worry.) Anyways, as you can see from this outfit, I'm now all bundled up in blazers and tights. Feeling slightly nostalgic for the sunny weather, only days ago.

Oh well, I love layering clothes and fall is definitely fun for that. So what, sun? I'm still a rock star. I've got my layered clothes. And I don't neeeed you tonightttt. (Guess the obnoxiously catchy song? Seriously, if I hear it once, it gets stuck in my head.)

Hope you've had a good week, my friends! And, not to be obnoxious or anything, but if you haven't already, update my link quirkyexplosion.blogspot.com!

What are your weekend plans?

That blazer is so cute. And who doesn't like to play in the Apple Store? I know I do. You're so lucky its sunny over there. The weather is starting to suck here in Vancouver.

Weekend plans: Watch 'New Moon'. Actually I watched it today. It was weird, 10pm instead of midnight.
Are you going to watch it?

Love your outfit! I think mustard yellow tights are awesome, but they're definitely hard to pull off (for me anyway). But they look fantastic on you!
