OOTD: Sheer Brilliance

So here’s the thing: I have started to wear a bit more colour recently. Shocking, I know. But the truth is those neutral hues are kind of wearing on my spirits. Yes it is still winter and yes it is still bitterly cold out (I’m from BC, okay: -15 means you don’t leave your dorm room) but that doesn’t mean my wardrobe and attire should reflect the same atmosphere. My best friend Maria consistently counts down the days until the first bloom of cherry blossoms spouts because for her, spring is the ultimate season. It gives her the excuse to prance around in dainty dresses, a crown of daisies circling her petite head. For me, being the literature enthusiast that I am, spring recollects quotes from Wordsworth and Keats, where nature is this empowering being that sparks the human consciousness. So why not embrace the look of spring in the hope of its speedy return, to break us from our winter slumber?

And for this OOTD, that’s exactly what I did. I fell in love with this soft, sheer pink top the moment I laid eyes on it, and the contrast of it’s femininity with the darkness of my black jeans created the perfect balance for me. I decided to match the silver stud detailing on the lining of the shirt with my black studded loafers to tie everything together. For my accessories, I kept things relatively simple with silver rings to coordinate with the silver else where in the look. The result was this simple, but ready-for-spring ensemble that was perfect for the events of that day: group projects and studying for midterms. Ah, the university life.

Credit to the lovely Druscilla Henault for these lovely shots and for hanging out with me in the common room despite being dead-dog tired after an entire day of production set up. I owe you one.

OOTD: Winter Wonderland

Winter is here, my friends. I cannot even begin to tell you how long I have waited for this moment, for the first snowfall of the season to occur. And it arrived, the day before my week of hell begins (it’s finals season, people. I hope you understand.) The weather was amazing, I mean there is just something about fresh snow that makes you want to drink hot chocolate and go for a walk to take in the beauty of it all.

My fantastic friend Druscilla offered to shoot a little OOTD for my blog and I was more than thankful for her doing so (it was freezing out and she was only in a leather jacket, God bless her soul).

Again, credit for photos go to Druscilla Henault because she is flawless. Thank you for sacrificing your warmth to take these for me. I owe you a Starbucks or two.

Until next time,

Jasmine
