Style Diary: Fresh Air

Hi there! Look who's outside again... Yeah, that's right, this girl. After treacherous weather for weeks, it's finally warming up, even if it's only supposed to be for a short period of time. I just love being able to enjoy being outside instead of making my trip from the bus stop home a rushed one because of the cold.

I decided to take advantage of the lovely weather by taking photos of a little outfit I put together. You know, because that's what I like to do in my spare time, not that I have that much of it, or any, to be exact.

Beanie: DIY | Hoodie: Garage | Dress: Fun & Flirt (Winners) | Boots: Call it Spring | Necklace: Dynamite

My mom picked out this dress for me when we were shopping one day at Winners. I was a bit surprised because the dress had a low revealing back and I thought she'd frown upon such fashion choices, but I guess not. I'm glad, too, because it has a lovely flowy feel to it because of the chiffon-like fabric and is an absolutely dream to twirl around in.

Even though I'm outside, it's still pretty cold, plus it's still winter, so I decided to cozy up with a thick knit hoodie and a beanie I DIY-ed from a while back.

For a bit of colour, I went for an emerald green statement necklace that brought out the greens in the hoodie. Instead of putting on some tights, I went for a knee-high boots because I thought throwing the tights on would just completely drown me in dark fabrics and just overwhelm my already short figure.

A song that I've just recently discovered is "No Better" by Lorde. You probably know that I'm absolutely obsessed with Lorde if you've been reading my blog for a while, so this was probably no surprise. I haven't taken the time to decipher the lyrics yet, but I thought it just fir the vibe of the outfit very well.
