cheers to my papa, who forgot to pick me up from school!

Disclaimer: Do not be fooled by the sunshine leaving its speckles in these photos. Rest assured that IT IS MERELY A TEASE. Did it snow after these pictures were taken? Pfft... why would you say that? YES IT DID. AM I BITTER? PFFT NOT AT ALL. (But seriously. It has sunshined, snowed, rained, snowed, sunshined, in the past 72 hours. Hello Canada, thank you for fulfilling your stereotype. Like, we all appreciate your indecisiveness. Like, just send us a freaking snow storm while you're at it. OH WAIT YOU ALREADY DID.) But you know, life is good and lalala wonderful words here. :)

And... outfit time. Hollla. I actually LOVE this dress. It's so voluminous and puffy and it makes me want to spin instead of walk and sing and instead of talk and yeah. You know. Spread joy and jumps and stuff. Er, anyways. I usually style it like this , but I was thinking, "Yo, let's change 'er up." And so I did. So , I'm basically full of surprises and great stories and depth, yeah?

Nothing significant happened in this outfit: first bike ride of the seasons (!!! highlight of the day. i lead an exciting lifestyle), chilled in a coffee shop for a few hours (by "chill"," I mean pretending to read Hamlet while simultaneously eavesdropping on some chick yapping about her sex life. love you strangers) and yeah. That's it. Oh, goodie - a guy told me I had "awesome style!!!" so cheers bro.

Felt is my new best friend. It reminds me of playing with felt dollies and make believe and things of that matter, which is sufficiently nostalgic and wonderful and thus I am content wearing it. I've also started making a bib from felt and yeah, this is fun news.

Despite the gray skies (literally. hah. that's not even remotely witty?), I am feeling sunny and joyous. I am feeling very inspired out of late, which is a nice change of pace. I'm not even sure what it is particularly, but I have huge urges to wear voluminous skirts and bright tights and patterned attire and oh hey what's new? Also, to just smile a lot and laugh at unfunny jokes and stuff of that matter? Maybe it's the sign of the sunshine and summer and graduation drawing near...

I think that that is one of the fun things about being inside my head: I am easily inspired. Like, extremely easily. (With the exception of school and/or when I am tired. Which is 90% of my life, so "easily" may be a weeeee bit of a stretch.) I love looking at things and imagining how it could be or how things might be or how things will be. I encounter a lot of "oohhhh, that's so beautiful, I could cry moments" and it's so, so great. I love living and being able to smile about living.

What inspires you, my friend? A person? A place? A parrot? (Alliteration, yo. I'm curious. Do spill.)

P.S. Thank you for all your comments in the past few weeks. I forgot how much I adore you all. Kidding. I show no emotions. Stoic face. (I feel like I should reference Angela from the Office right now. So hi. Reference.) I don't know why these words are being sputtered from my lips. er. Fingers...

Hanna said...

love these pics, I really like the sun in these pics actually!
and your dress is to cute , i'm so loving it!

I always get inspired by other bloggers ! love to see how they use the trends of the season to mix with there own style. Oh and good editorials are also really awesome inspiration!:)

Marloes said...

Lexy, I confess. Lately its been you. Especially post like these. You make me want to wear whatever I want and not care about if people might find it stupid/idiotic/crazy/etc. And that is a bloody good thing, because now I walk in high heels all the time, wear midi skirts and I'm growing my hair. Yes. Okay, well I must say that it's not only you who inspires me to do that, but you sort of encourage me to keep doing so. If you know what I mean...

Wow, how is it possible I also post such long comments on your blogs?! ANYWAY. I love your comment on the weather, beautiful words indeed! ;)

Angelica Ng said...

Oh yes Canada! It was snowing over here too. But I on the other hand, and super bitter and mad and disappointed!!! GRRR sunshine please!!! Inspiration....I'd say life is my inspiration.

Ruta, Look Ugly in a Photograph said...

You look amazing! I love your outfit, it's so cute! It must be weird to be back in normal clothes after your trip.

I think I'm inspired by the weather, that is, the weather I want it to be. I so do not dress for the weather. I've spent the last couple of days freezing in my thing coats because I refuse to accept that it is not that warm yet.

Marie @ Lemondrop Vintage said...
