Running Out Of Time

 
 
 
  Blog post up! Check! One less thing on my to do list. I am leaving on my trip in 3 days and I have not even picked out outfits yet or started packing. I don’t like to travel heavy, especially because I like to shop when I am away and I need room in my luggage for the return trip. But mostly because I just don’t like to carry too many things with me. I prefer to preplan what to wear, plan to use same pieces of clothing in more than one outfit. I much prefer to enjoy every second enjoying the city then spending time putting things together. This task was on my to do list to finish today, but it might have to wait till tomorrow. I am so disorganized this time that believe it or not, I only booked the hotel today! But I got the one I wanted J. Check, check!
 
This H&M dress, is the most comfortable dress for the summer for me. And only $15. I also have it in black and army green (here). I wear it to the beach, running around city, going out, and so on. I love the bright coralish red which would look absolutely amazing on many different complexions. The pictures don't do justice to the colour as I had to use flash to take these pictures since the sun was already down. I usually wear a cropped denim jacket with it to give me appearance of more curves, and I really love this one with leather (imitation) sleeves. I got this jacket and this great bag (lamb leather) at Winners. I know a lot of people get hives just thinking about going to Winners to look for clothes, but I find it fun. For those of you not from Canada wondering what Winners is, it is a store similar to Marshals in the US. I am not too familiar with similar type stores in Europe, but put simply it is a type of a store that carries many brand (and not so brand) and designer names, from clothing to house wear. I don’t look at everything hanging on the racks. I walk around and if something catches my eye I will look at it. Bags and shoes are much easier to browse through. And make sure that you go on a week day and not on a weekend; otherwise you just may lose your mind. I simply love not knowing what I will find when I walk in and I get absolutely exited finding a little treasure. A treasure such as my Versace $200 (originally $800) lace sandals maybe? Or L.A.M.B. sandals $50 (originally $350)! What is your favourite place to shop?

  1. Love the dress. Picked up a green one 2 weeks ago on clearance for $5! I like your version of pairing it with black tights. I would feel more comfortable.

    1. Yes they have them every year on sale in late spring or fall. Many different colours and patterns to chose from.
