london is calling my name

Tea and crumpets anyone? I felt very British in this outfit, possibly due to the fact that I based it on a recent outfit by Alexa Chung, one of my favourite style icons. She always looks so effortlessly put together, doesn't she? Although I did add my own spin on it with printed heart tights (a steal for $5 at Forever 21. I'm ignoring the fact that they bunch a little around the knees). Meagan and I found this perfect empty space on the SFU campus with a breathtaking view of the mountains, still snow-capped and looking beautiful. Can I just say that it feels so good to be able to wear the other clothes and shoes from my closet that were not included in my 30 for 30 Challenge. These kitten-heeled booties are perfect for days when I know I'll have a bit of a distance to walk, but they still give me extra height, which I love, being only 5'1". Also, this trench is so lightweight and perfect for those in-between temperatures that will be happening throughout Spring. I can't wait for more sunshine, gorgeous days, and school to be over! Three more weeks and my life will be normal again. Happy Monday everyone!

  1. Looking fabulous as always! We won't mention neutral. :)

    I have booties that look so much like that, except I got them at Friedman's, not Aldo. Inside I see "Bronx So Today." They've been go-to footwear on so many occasions!

    Love the tights!
