Mint Winter

I haven't posted anything in ages! And by ages, I mean a week. This is mostly due to the fact that I haven't worn anything even remotely worthy of documenting. It has been a freezing and lazy week, my friends. And while I haven't blogged much, I did have a nice little week full of coffee dates with Em, multiple Starbucks trips with Maria, and movie nights with Mike (we went to see This Is 40, what did you guys think of it?). I've also been decorating up my room in fun and nifty little ways, which I'm excited to share later :) And lots of school and work, as per usual.

A few things were made very clear to me through the taking/ editing of these photos:
  • My mother was right and this skirt is definitely too short
  • My mother was right, times two, and flats are not warm enough for this weather
  • My mother must never read my blog and know that I just wrote she was right, twice
  • I am in desperate need of a haircut
  • Tripods are convenient and make everything easier but I still hate them and wish I owned a magical camera
  • There is no fear greater than anticipating someone walking in on you while taking outfit pictures in a public space
  • As a group, fashion bloggers are absolutely insane for taking outfit pictures in the snow. We're insane guys. It may look sunny and bright in these pictures but I can assure you I was absolutely FREEZING my toes off!

I wore this outfit to school, and then quickly decided to trade in my flats for a pair of boots. Em, Mark, Mike and I all went for dinner to the Palace last night, and it was so NOM. Today, Mike leaves for Toronto for the weekend, so I am entering into needy girlfriend mode (haha just kidding kind of). I guess this will just be a great excuse to get some assignments rolling ;) Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

  2. Lovely outfit, those shoes are so pretty :) x

  3. I LOVE the colour of your cardigan - I want one now! It's so pretty, mint is definitely a gorgeous colour. xxx

  4. K loveeeeee your mint!! it's perfect with that winter wonderland behind you haha

    Lovely Little Rants

  5. I love how you go outside with your tripod!!!! I haven't been brave enough yet. We're new to the neighborhood. But you know what? I'm gonna do it soon.


  6. Your photos are lovely and so is your outfit! And yes, bloggers are definitely a brave lot for taking photos in the snow haha! xo

  7. Haha I laughed at the comment about fearing someone walking in on you taking pictures of your outfit. I think this is the #1 reason I could never be a fashion blogger. (Okay, #1 is really I'm terrible at fashion-y things, but it's a close second.) Love the mind-sheer tights pair, it just seems delicate and wintery.

  8. Your cardigan is such a perfect colour! And your shoes are adorable - love the last photo :).

    Your comments about your mum made me laugh, she sounds exactly like mine haha.

  9. You are adorable!! I love that oversized mint cardigan and your skirt. Super cute outfit! And yes we ARE insane taking pics in this freezing snow and cold!

  10. This is a lovely outfit, although I did wonder if you were cold :P That fear of people spotting you while taking photos - that's the worst! I'm still to nervous to take photos outside my bedroom or further than the garden and can't even handle my family being around!
    Thanks for the comment on my blog, I really love your blog and style so I'm now following you :)

  11. I hate tripods too! But I do love mint and this cardigan looks great! :) Hope you recovered from the cold!

  12. Love the cardigan, mint green is one of my favourite colours! You got a lot of snow! I resorted to wellies to deal with it.. Lovely blog by the way :) xx

  13. Lol I know that feeling of admitting your mother was right. I love your outfit and I've seen shorter skirts, if that helps at all lol. :)

  14. I try to avoid situations where I could be discovered taking pictures of myself alone in public. I'd feel so awkward! lol. And I agree....we are a little crazy for taking pictures in the freezing cold. Some days it's hard to muster up the courage to do it! lol.

  15. I love your outfit, is soooo sweet!!!

  16. I love everything about this post. Your outfit is cute! While maybe it's not all that practical for snow, it's super cute in photos. Isn't it just the worst when parents are right? THE WORST.

    I though This Is 40 was pretty funny. Admittedly, I fell asleep towards the end, so I don't really know what ended up happening, but I did laugh a lot before that.

    Also, I feel you on outfit photos in public places. Goodness I need to get over that one.

  17. You are too cute, girl! And I definitely have to get myself a tripod so I can take pictures on my own. But you're right, a magical picture would be better ;)
