The attic became my bedroom when I was fifteen, after my friends and I started having sleepovers up there. My parents suggested it, and I was thrilled as I had never considered it to be a possibility! It made for a very cool bedroom, with the slanted ceilings and the floor pillows my mom made for "hanging out." There was all kinds of space for people to sleep over, and on any given weekend I had at least four people staying the night!
When I returned to my hometown to attend university (after a couple of years at another school), the attic became mine again -- this time to be shared with Billy! We've really made it our own, and I'm sure we've benefitted from the energy of such a cool space. I'm going to miss it when we move out :) I'm going to do a post soon with pictures of the room, something I've been meaning to do for ages!
On to the outfit! This was an outfit that came together when the pale green blouse and the mosaic-printed tennis skirt were hanging next to each other. They looked so great that I had to combine them! I chose all-black accent pieces, opting for some print-mixing with my striped tights and patent belt, and my black cardigan.
I wore my patent crossover heels, and my multistrand pearl necklace, which unfortunately I didn't get a picture of! D'oh ;)
In other fun news, I've just recently discovered style.com... ohhhhh my goodness. I've been working through the Fall ready-to-wear collections, and I'm so excited!!
I hope everyone had a great weekend, and happy belated Canada Day to my country-bloggers! Happy 4th of July (tomorrow) to my American friends tomorrow too :D
