Although I was born in Toronto, I grew up in the Maritime city of Halifax, Nova Scotia. My childhood was full of foggy trips to the waterfront, playing on the boat-shaped playground and peering into the murky harbour water to see if I could find any creatures! I still love the salty smell to the air around beaches (although harbour smell is a bit different... haha...), and water is a constant inspiration to me.
This was a fun little outfit, representing not only my love for nautical looks, but also for orange-and-blue colour combinations! I went a bit nuts with it this time, but I love the result and felt very "me" in this outfit. The orange contributions are the striped shirt, my lipstick (L'Oreal Paris Color Riche in Ornage Fever: love it), and my sort-of-orangey tan heels! My navy skirt and turquoise-blue belt are the most apparent blues, and my tights are actually a steel-blue colour, although they look more grey in these pictures. I carried my pale blue purse, but ehh, maybe a bit of overkill? Oh well!
Heh, for anyone who has noticed, yes, my silver jacket is still kicking... I plant to wear it until it falls apart. I've been thinking about trying to copy it, which could be an interesting foray into the world of faux-leather! Hmm!
Alrighty, I'm off to play sewing at my friend's house :D And hopefully tomorrow I'll be able to finish my sundress so I can show you! Hooray!
