An obvious choice, I know, but navy is such a staple in my wardrobe that it was the perfect choice for "N"! Since I love it so much, I incorporated some of my absolute favourite pieces into this look :D
I chose to wear my navy star-print sweater! I love this sweater, but I don't wear it often because the print is bordering on juvenile, I find. But as I was laying on my couch, contemplating my wardrobe, I thought to myself: hmm, the stars on that sweater are a really similar size to the houndstooth print on that skirt!! It was an exciting moment, as the skirt is another of my favourites!
Since I was working with favourites, I had to add my navy pashmina, navy geometric booties, and navy moviestar sunglasses! And of course, my black beret ;)
Lookie! Puffed sleeves :D Lovelovelove. And of course, my winter mistress, the camel coat! It was SO cold today that my warmest (and best-looking with black, white, and navy) coat was a necessity.
Haha I'm glad I was wearing my sunglasses in these photos, so you can't see the pain in my eyes! Usually taking pictures without a coat in the winter is no prob, but these were taken on the way home from school, so I had already been out in the -15C for a good 7 minutes! Brrr. I usually take the pictures straight from indoors so I'm still toasty warm from the woodstove! Here's a marvelous blooper of me experiencing the chill as I struggle to take off the cardigan, against my better judgment:
Dancing-warmly-in-my-coat picture time, just looking at that ^ picture makes me cold!
Yaaaay. I have even more reason to dance! I'm going to New York City this Friday!! I am so excited. After I finish this post, I have to clean my room and plan outfits!! I have an extra challenge, because whatever I bring has to be SMALL. It has to fit into a small carryon, because we get into the city at 10 a.m. and can't check into our hotel until 3 p.m. Uhh, crap. I'm not good at packing light! I will learn a new skill on this trip :)
Another challenge: deciding what to wear for each colour when I'm gone! I'll be there for Q, R, S, and T. I have fantabulous ideas for Q and S, but am drawing a blank for R and T! And suggestions, much appreciated!
Tomorrow is my second sewing lesson! Yaaay :D I'm excited to see what I'll learn! I can't wait to learn how to use patterns, I've collected some preeeeetty awesome ones that I can't wait to make!
Oooh also, I went to the Salvation Army today to find a bookbag (which I found), and I also got two snakeskin belts (one dark green, one cream and black), a striped scarf, and... vintage tan suede shoes WITH GOLD PUMAS ON THE HEELS. I know.
