when I grow up, I wanna be a ballerina

Skirt: Vancouver Blogger sale, via the Doctors closet
Tights: Urban Outfitters
Shirt: Urban Outfitters
Sweater: Thrifted, Guelph
Jacket: Thrfited, Bolton, Chez Thrift
Belt: Mom's
Necklace: Hattitude Jewellery
Bracelets: Hattitude custom charm bracelet 

How this outfit came to be Hattified: I got this skirt at the blogger sale two weeks ago. I love the tutu style. I started with the skirt. I wanted to wear the striped shirt with it, paired it with a brown wide belt to split it up. I needed something more then just the pop of colour in the shirt to hattify the outfit, so I paired matching sheer tights with the outfit. 

Why this outfit works: I wanted the tights to match the shirt, they have a little pattern in them (hearts) and the boots to grunge it up and casualfy it (is that a word?) and also match the brown belt. The jean jacket really makes the outfit casual. I needed the sweater for warmth but it also adds another texture and layer that I like so much. 

Another version: Bare leg it and put it with some flat shoes or wicked wedges, not hiking boots. 

We had the best weather this past weekend in Vancouver. We just walked and walked and walked the beaches. When you're on a three month hiatus from your normal home (Ontario) and schedule, it's hard to tell what is the weekend and what is the week day. 

I re-watched death at a funeral last night. Has anyone seen that? It is the funniest movie I have seen in quite a long time, but then again the brit's always get me laughing. Go out and rent it or it's on our beloved net flix, the english version. Hi-llarious!

Also I'm going to see the hunger games this afternoon. I'm probably in the movie theatre right now as your reading this, eating my popcorn and grasping the edge of my seat chair because i'm just so gosh darn excited! I cannot wait to see it!

  3. I love the flowiness of your skirt. And by flowiness, I mean that it looks like it would be nice to twirl in. If that makes sense. It's just really pretty.

  7. I adore skirts like this and seeing it with that pop of color in your shirt just manages to make the airy-gauzy-ness of the skirt more real life some how. Nice!
