Condensed Summer Bucket List

Aug 19, 2013

I'm finally free from school!!!!! Look at that smile across my face. You could say that it officially marks the start of my summer holiday though... sad, isn't it? Even worse, this freedom will last for just one week. And something EVEN worse is happening tomorrow but you'll just have to wait for my next post to find out what that might be. On another note, it's been over a week since I've done an outfit post- WOW. Time flies.


 Top: Garage // Cardigan: Talula // Skirt: Stitches // Flats: SODA

I think it is safe for me to describe this outfit as a combination of crochet, pleats, and patriotism (got my red and white going on). I would like to think that this outfit is pretty cheap because most of the pieces didn't come out of my own pocket. A big thanks to those who got them for me! The only things I did pay for were the flats (~$10) and the skirt ($5), amounting to a grand total of $15! I have a double crochet theme going on here. Ahh, I am so in love with the crochet top. My only problem with it is that it doesn't have a lining underneath so I always have to wear a camisole under it.

Hmm, I've had some family trips this summer and did some things with friends but there's just so much more I want to do! I already have three things planned to do this week because I have to squeeze everything in this week. I've literally been sitting at my desk for almost all the days of the past two weeks. I'm planning on making blog posts on the things I'm doing this week so I don't want to spoil it now. Stay tuned!

What I can say is that this might be the last time you'll see me with my hair this long. I'm planning to get it cut before school starts (and potentially colouring it for the first time). It will be a big change but I'm pretty excited to undergo a transformation!
