An ocean being warmed by the sun.

The weather is really starting to warm up. Alex and I went to Waterloo Park to enjoy a picnic and to play frisbee and badminton.

cruciodatass said: hi there!! love your blog immensely and your sense of style! just wondering, how sheer is the american apparel chiffon double-layered full length skirt that you bought? i'm contemplating of whether i should get and whether or not if it's a good investment (how is the quality btw)? and which store did you purchase it? thank you kindly!

Hey, wow, thank you so much! That’s really flattering, I’m glad you love reading! :-) The skirt is a bit sheer (same material as the Oversized Button-Ups), but it’s not bad because there is so much fabric! You can sometimes see through the lower legs/ankles as you’re walking, but by no means would I consider it inappropriate. The secret is wearing either a nude-coloured pair of undies or a pair in a colour similar to the skirt! I bought the skirt in Tan and I love mine!

They’re actually really good quality - the shape and the waistband are the same as they’ve ever been. As well, the AA skirt flows really nicely, which gives it a bit of a distinctive look in comparison to the maxi skirts sold in other stores. I would consider it a great investment because it goes with a lot of the clothes I have and I get a ton of wear out of it! You should definitely try one on if you have the opportunity to. I bought mine at the Waterloo location. :-)

Hope this somewhat helps! Thanks again for the compliments, hope you’re having an awesome day and enjoying the sunshine!

A new froyo place just opened up in KW called YoYo’s! I was out and about in Downtown Kitchener when one of my girls called me about their free promotion. Of course, I couldn’t resist!

This is the first time I’ve worn denim in a very long time - let alone document the occasion! These pants look like Current/Elliot, but they’re a fraction of the price!
