The other day I had a yearning to pull out this checkered crop jacket I bought off zipia.net a few years ago! With the influx of soft pastels and blinding neons taking the blogosphere and shops by storm lately, the dark bottle greens and mustards of this jacket seemed so out of place when people are rocking pastels even during winter. Nonetheless, I hate the idea of not being able to wear something just because it's not in trend anymore so I wore this anyway! To me the checkered pattern on the jacket embodies "preppy" but I wanted an edgier look. I popped on a pair of Le Specs shades, distressed denim shorts and these awesome faux-socks stockings with the line across the knee.
How adorable is this bird potion necklace? It's a little crystal-clear potion bottle with a tiny bird figurine sitting atop the cork lid. You can take off the cork lid and spray a bit of your favourite perfume inside, and open it any time you need a pick-me-up. The outfit was already a mish-mash of edgy, preppy and eclecticism; why not add a touch of sweetness? :) It was so difficult to pick something for the lovely people at Rire Boutique to gift over to me- they have so many sweet and feminine dresses, necklaces, bags and more.
In other news of my incredibly boring life- another semester of uni has started again and seems more tiring and tedious than ever upon knowing it's my last semester. Also, about two weeks ago I put myself on a chocolate ban so I can do a total overhaul of my shocking eating habits (processed sugar = like 90% of my daily intake). I'm quite picky when it comes to savoury foods so before I would sometimes each a block of chocolate or a packet of choc chip cookies and call it lunch. People are surprised that I haven't gotten diabetes yet. Right now I'm coping better than I expected...probably because I'm cheating with extra sugar in my coffee and the discovery of banana muffins *drools*
Oh and the song title is from Sassafras by Timmy Trumpet and Chardy, the latest electro gem I've been so obsessed with lately!
