> outfit

Here is/was today's outfit-- bad face/hair day.

Dress is from H&M, footless tights from le chateau, gladiator sandals by Jeffery Campbell, bag from the gap, and bracelet is a vintage necklace! I really felt comfortable in this outfit.

It's funny, as I get older I'm finding out what clothes I really like. I was looking through my closet and saw some tops that look great, but aren't me. I wondered "why did I buy this-- it's beautiful, but it's not me." Such is this beautiful FCUK top, in yellow, it looked so cool on the aritzia mannequin, and I thought I could rock it with skinny black jeans-- but you know what? I don't like to "rock" things.

I vow to be more mindful with my purchases and buy what I suits me, not what suits the hanger.

Totally agree with the age/knowing what you like argument. I'm finding that it applies to more and more aspects of my life lately (friends, music, decorating, etc.), but particularly clothing. I did a massive closet overhaul recently for that very reason.

Cute outfit by the way. Don't you LOVE those Jeffrey Campbell gladiators? I literally have trouble taking mine off :)

P.S. The Yonge/Dundas AA may be the worst of all. Full, 100% agreement here.
