Today is Labor day, a holiday for us Canadian and yet since I’m a freelancer for the moment every Monday is kinda like a holiday Monday for me. Labor day was always the sign that school was riiiiight around the corner. I honestly miss school like crazy.
This little outfit I’ve got on here feeling like the perfect outfit for back to school. I can imagine running around the old Oxford campus (my dream school – where I spent a time studying English in grade 12), heading off to my first Art History lecture, books in my mustard yellow bookbag, pens and pencils rolling around inside. My polka dot teal skirt blowing in the wind as I jump off my bike and park it under some grinning gargoyles. And I whiz around the corner, my woolen tights protecting me from the chill, running up the cobblestones and wooden steps of a great old Gothic building where an old instructor waits at the mahogany lecture stand with a smile. My brown lace up oxford shoes dancing under my seat with excitement as I break out my notebook and dive into the images and ideas floating around in my head.
I’ve been searching and searching the thrift shops for a little denim vest to rock this fall but I’ve had no luck. Then the other day I found this lovely little vest at H & M ON SALE nonetheless and I snapped it up along with a great cheap bright orange thank top and this awesome pair of mustard tights. All the perfect colours for fall! I’m trying to hold back my heartbreak about summer leaving us so soon by diving into fall with arms wide open!Honestly, I adore this vest. I think I’ve worn it every single day since I bought it. It seems to go with absolutely everything! I’m thrilled that I found it before we got too far into the fall.
