149. (Pastels on a Dreary Day)



I haven't been updating lately because I was sick, or still am sick actually. My boyfriend gave me his awful cold/flu and I unfortunately had that on top of exams and important job interviews. I only actually went out today because I had a job interview (I didn't wear such a flashy outfit like this of course, haha. Not like it mattered, it was a casual place.) and then I went home, changed, then went to go buy stuff to make pho tonight.



Top, Skirt and Shoes Thrifted | Cardigan AA |Belt ASOS | Tights Courtesy of We Love Colors

I found this mint skirt (I tweaked the picture a bit so the accurate colour is shown) at Value Village for $4, and the top was $2.99 at Goodwill... I love my thrift finds. :)

As usual, enjoying my break. Trying to recover. See you all next time.

  2. So jealous. I went to Goodwill the other day (it's all we have around here) and they literally had 8 dresses in the entire building. Apparently everyone around here is hoarding

    That skirt is soooo pretty. I love the color so much. ANd I still never managed to find a pair of opaque white tights and I have such an aversion to ordering things online because I"m a weirdo haha. The white tights are adorable.

  5. I'm very into this. I have a serious soft spot for polka dots and the mixture with the lace flowers on the top is just oh so lovely.

  18. I'm sorry you're sick! I like how you've combined several colors and patterns here. That skill still eludes me, so I must study your ways. I also commend your frugality--that appeals to my sensibilities, too, 'cause I'm way cheap. (:
