06 April 2011

just walking on sunshine

Finally I woke up to the sun shining through my window this morning. It was so beautiful out, and although multiple things went wrong, nothing could bring me down on this Spring day. This is the April I've been looking forward to! I really wanted to incorporate colour into my outfit today, so I took a flowy dress from H&M and turned it into a skirt (I think this is one of my new favourite things to do). Paired with a delicate blouse and a boyfriend blazer, I just loved the overall effect. I went back to my dance roots and wore ballerina flats - seriously, the most comfortable flats I've ever bought - and I thought the outfit warranted a few twirls. My camera ran out of batteries at school, so I set up my tripod when I got home and I couldn't help but have fun spinning around in my backyard. It was surprisingly therapeutic after a disastrous mark on a paper I wrote. Finals week is coming up, but I'm trying not to stress... so for now, happy Wednesday!

  14. It so great when the sun shines and nothing can get you down. Your outfit is amazing.I love turning dresses into skirts. I also love how you twirled in your "skirt". I believe that is what skirts and dresses are made for.
    Cheers,
