OOTD: Work of Art

Image

Sometimes you need to step back and take in the landscape. Or, in this case, the art. My university is very art based, and these paintings done by the visual arts students set the perfect background for this laid-back, hipster-influenced outfit. I wanted to go for comfortable yet chic, but I still wanted to play with some edge. I put on my all-time favourite knit sweater, and tucked it into my pumpkin high-to-low skirt. I liked the way it was taking the colour of my favourite season, fall, and contrasting it with a crisp, spring white. To add that edge I mentioned earlier, I opted out on my JC Litas–which would have been my first choice for this look–and stuck with my vintage combat boots. The great thing about these babies is that they were locally made here, in Canada!

Finally, for my very basic accessories, I went for my favourite cross necklace. Normally, I flip it to the black side, but I felt my outfit needed a little… something. So I turned to the Leopard print instead.

Thanks to Sonia for working with the lighting on these ones! Oh, and putting up with all the people walking by. That was fun (not).

Items worn:

Until next time,

Newest Obsession: Creepers

I think I’m in love.

No, seriously.

I have been seeing these bad boys everywhere, and at first, I hated them. If you don’t know what I am referring to, then just look up T.U.K Creepers in black. Or black and white. I love them both.

But in all honesty, I thought they were hideous at first. They looked gothic and, well, hipster. But then I came to realize that I am probably hipster. Hell, half the young generation could be classified as hipster so, why not love these unique little shoes? My favourite fashion blogger/YouTube guru Jenn Im is obsessed with them as well, and she has definitely probed me to going out and buying a pair. Well, next paycheck, that is.

They just look so versatile and comfortable, but they still retain that edge to them that I love so much. I don’t know. You may think they are hideous, but I think I’ve found my newest obsession. Trust me, once I have them in my possession I will never take them off. I cannot wait.

Until next time,

Jasmine.
