i may be poor but i have pretty clothes

I did some major damage when I went shopping downtown Vancouver the other day. My bank account is angry, my debit card has been exercised to exhaustion, and my feet were literally begging me to sit down. But it felt so good to spend money. Such a great treat to celebrate the end to all the stress and worries that go along with University. I thought you might be interested in my pretty purchases, so I laid them out nicely to give you a sneak peak. I made sure to stick to things that I needed: colours, patterns, accessories, and of course a bit of white (I can't shy away from neutrals, I can't!). It actually makes me happy looking at this photo. Who knew shopping could bring such joy?

Crochet romper & Floral shorts, Urban Outfitters
Patterned top & straw bag, H&M | Red heels, Sterling
White blouse, Club Monaco | Hat, Aritzia
 Sunglasses & earrings, Aldo

Contrary to my goal of always wearing patterns or colours this Spring, I couldn't help but go all neutral on my trip downtown. So be prepared for tan, cream, light pink, nude, and white. But I did add a bright lip shade and a yellow bag to bring in a little bit of colour. Apparently tomorrow Vancouver temperatures are supposed to reach the 20s! This is good news for my Spring wardrobe. Have a great weekend everyone!
