No, it's not a fashion crime...


Let me tell you guys something. My closet is basically... not even basic. I have three pairs of shoes; sandals, ill-fitting ballet flats, and running shoes (not a pair I wear anytime except when working out). Also, I don't even have what are considered wardrobe "basics" - the white tee, the black dress, the pencil skirt, the button-down, the tailored trousers, etc. But that doesn't mean I'm not suited to blog about my daily outfits - if nothing else, it gives small-closeted readers some hope and some inspiration, and gives those with a more substantial wardrobe inventory fresh eyes with which to look at their pieces.

Monochrome colorblocking really works.


Happy weekend, all! I hope you have had an awesome week – and if any of you live in BC/Saskatchewan/Washington/similar area, I doubly hope you haven't been affected by the fires! Our home here on the Sunshine Coast got severely smokey after the wind began to blow from Sechelt, where there's currently a terrible fire. The smoke settled like a blanket over everything, so the island across the water was invisible to us. It was very eerie, because the smoke completely blocked out the (cloudless) sky, so though the sun was shining, the sky appeared overcast. Everything took on a yellow tint, and the sun was orange-red and tiny behind the smoke. This lasted until Wednesday – yesterday was finally almost normal. Today, everything is as usual, so to celebrate the amazing weather, I took pictures!
