Sooo tonight was my school’s art gala. AND THEY GAVE ME A $100 SCHOLARSHIP!!! I was the only grade 10 to get one and I was SO happy. I’m probably going to put it towards a new lens or some really nice chalk pastels or something. I’m just so surprised that they picked me out of all the amazing kids in my class!

Shirt: Hand-me-down
Belt: Thrifted
Skirt: DIY
Tights: Urban outfitters
Shoes: Thrifted

In conclusion…yay!!! Tonight was a really good night! :)


I actually got up early enough to take this picture before I left!

Are you amazed yet?! The five extra minutes it takes to snap an outfit photo might not seem like a lot to all you organized, early risers out there, but it’s pretty impressive for me.

Necklace: Gift
Vest: AA
Shirt: Winners? Maybe?
Cardigan: Hand-me-down
Jeans: Dish
Boots: Doc Marten

Tomorrow is my school’s art gala! The dancers are performing first, then we do a nice little art show (in the cafeteria, of course…) and then the drama students are performing a song from High School Musical. One of my best friends is in drama and she is constantly threatening suicide because of how unprepared they are to perform as everyone hates practicing HSM, so it should be quite an amusing show!

I am craving…

…NAIL POLISH! I think my allowance this week might go towards some cheaper versions of colours like these from OPI.

Russian Navy, Malaysian Mist, and Midnight in Moscow

I love these colours! Especially the neutral in the middle, for some reason. All I can find is my best friend’s sparkly light pink nail polish she forgot here, and I want a nice matte colour. Is matte the right term for it? Erm…well, a solid colour. Shiny but not sparkly!

the dress, again!

Such a cool music video. Oh, and I figured out something more interesting to wear tomorrow! Not exactly breakthrough, but I did remember the glory of the in-between of jeans and tights, leggings. How could I forget?!

Maybe I should just be trying to find cute outfits that involve jeans and sweaters! I gave up on my skirt this morning and threw this on. Also, I look like a balding, out of focus man in this photo. :D

Scarf: Target
Sweater: Vintage
Jeans: Dish
Shoes: Thrifted

I totally love these shoes. So comfy! I even wore them for the 12 minute run in gym and did pretty dang well, if I do say so myself. (27 laps around the gym=80% grade! YUSSS!)

This whole winter in the middle of April thing? IT NEEDS TO END! I’ve got a whole bunch of skirts that I’m dying to wear but I can’t. Grrr!!! So, for the…third (or possibly fourth) day in a row, I’m not going to post my outfit! Sweaters, jeans, and sneakers just gets boring after a while. And it’s all I’ve been wanting to wear lately! As the weather goes downhill so does my luck…as my boyfriend was walking me to the bus stop on Friday, a car drove by and started pelting us with snowballs. Being the wimps that we are (my boyfriend would tell me to speak for myself here), we ran behind his friend’s house and into the ravine to go to the other bus stop. Of course, me being me, I fell down the hill about 6 times…and one of those times, my wallet fell out of my back pocket! :( We made it all the way to the bus before I realized it was gone, so of course we ran back, but to no avail. His mom ended up having to drive me home through the storm! And it hasn’t improved, either. The sun is trying to break through but no luck. Well, at least I have a chance of finding my wallet when the snow melts, but my outfits might be pretty boring until then…so, just to torture myself, I’m going to post pictures of what I WISH I could wear tomorrow!

Um, oh my god, PERFECTION. The hair, the matchy matchy, and the shapes… and the caption is “taking a break from studying at the library”. Nerd chic done so amazingly well. She also has my dream hair! Maybe I will freeze to death tomorrow but look cute while doing it…I’m inspired now!
