Matt and I also did a TON of shopping. Oops! I'm going to be paying this trip off for a while, haha. On the first day we went to Zara and some other random shops along Rue Ste.-Catharine. I got a pair of the orange cropped pants from Zara! I love them. And apparently I wear a smaller size than I thought, is Zara known for vanity sizing?
On the second day we went to H&M. What an amazing selection they have at the Montreal H&M! I bought two dresses, two tops, and a thing that I can't decide if it's a dress or a top. I also got suspenders because I regretted not buying them at the one in New York in February (aren't I a jet-setter), and they don't have them at the H&M in Moncton.
After H&M we went to Forever 21. I had never been, and I was blown away! The prices are SO LOW. I bought a pair of shorts, another dress, and a summer cardigan, as well as a necklace for my sister!
Other shopping stops included sandals from L'Attitude and a straw hat from Aldo. Love.
On to this outfit! This one is a throw-together. I've been wanting to wear this blue dress, but when I wore it it was still too cold for bare shoulders. So I wore a black puffed-sleeve t-shirt with rickrack at the neckline to echo the cream rickrack on the dress neckline. I wore my cream snakeskin belt because the pattern and colours continues the zigzaggy thing that was going on!
I wore my plaid tights and black suede oxford heels as well! The plaid added another fun colour and texture.
And of course, I wore my Michael Jackson jacket -- the sleeves created such a neat silhouette with the tulip skirt! -- and a beret, naturally.
In other awesome news, I just got off the phone with Billy in Turkey! We had such a nice conversation. I miss him so much! 15 days 'til he comes home!
