Gypsys, Suns & Rainbows

I have to admit, I was not so huge on the wide-leg pants thing until the end of last summer. I’m pretty excited to get all the use I can out of them this season since they are ridiculously comfortable and easy to wear.
You can get the ones I’m wearing HERE *CLICK!* ! off Sugarlips.

There is something so fresh about tangerine and mint!

I am currently in the process of getting some of my drawings printed so I can throw them on my Etsy shop. Pretty much for archival purposes too, all of my things are scattered everywhere and the quality of my sketches suffer immensely because of it.

This week is going to be spent with friends. I hope your goal will be something of the same. In light of the Boston Marathon situation I completely jumped to the quote by Mr. Rogers about seeing horrific things in the news, “When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”

Don’t Fence Me In

OH hay!
I would hate to base this entire post on the fact that I got new shoes, but someone please let me act like a sixteen year old valley girl for my shining moment of glory! Having recently purchased my first ever Jeffery Campbell shoes (THAT ARE NOT LITA BOOTS #YIKES), I feel like I finally have something to show for myself (besides a fine arts degree #minordetails).

In other materialistic news, my Aunt showed up dawning this amazing Armani spring coat for me which belonged to a now passed family member.
It’s wonderful when clothes are Armani, but its MUCH more wonderful when they have sentimental value. I’ll be getting much use out of this piece.
The velvet headband blowing in the wind is by Little-Fille! Perfect for the changing weather.

Coincidentally, I believe spring has abandoned Canadians, therefore leaving the term: “Canadian Spring” one big oxymoron. But I feel born again, and sometimes catch the brief scent of growing lilies or fresh cut grass.
I hope everyone else is being as positive as I am. (ha!) xx
