I’ve come to the realization this winter that my closet is 99% pretty yet impractical things and 1% basic pieces. As my taste has changed and evolved, I’ve found that I almost crave the simplicity of a great camel coat (see last post) or the perfect white T-shirt more than anything. What’s more, the more I stock up on basics in neutral colours, the easier it is to throw together a look, which is obviously always a big plus. This isn’t to say that I’ll abandon my bright colours and prints, but I did need to give myself a bit of a tutorial in dressing in basics. For example, this outfit took about two minutes to pull together, I just sought out earth tones and everything came together in record time.
After having wrapped up my term with a 10+ hour day on Monday, I decided to totally crash yesterday. I watched disgusting amounts of Say Yes to the Dress and What Not to Wear, drank tea, ate candy…and that was pretty much it. Oh, and I had two grilled cheese sandwiches.
I love having the odd day off to do nothing every once in awhile, but surprisingly, I woke up today wanting to get back to some kind of work…any work! I’m someone who naturally likes to have a full schedule just so I get to talk about how busy I am, so I’m sure I’ll figure out something time-consuming to occupy myself with soon enough.
I’m actually just starting on some applications for editorial internships this week, so if any of you hear of any opportunities in the fashion/lifestyle publication industry, let me know! I can be anywhere and everywhere come April so even if it’s something outside of Vancouver, I’m game!
Hope you’re all having a great week so far!
