Hello, Yellow!

Hello everyone!

It’s been a looong time since I last posted, so I’m here to give you a little life update.

1. I got a cat! We rehomed him a few months ago. We named him Lupin after Remus Lupin from Harry Potter. He loves to follow us around the house and play with his tunnels. He is the first real pet I’ve ever had, and honestly the adjustment hasn’t been as difficult as I thought it would be. If you check my Insta Stories you will see him make quite a few appearances. It turns out I’m kind of a cat lady.

2. I got, and recovered from, severe cystic acne. I think this one deserves its own post, so I won’t go into too many details right now. But this is one of the reasons I’ve been a bit AWOL.

3. I started taking more time for myself. For the past three and a half years I’ve worked two jobs. I really enjoyed them both, but it also meant that I was working seven days a week. I finally reached the realization that this just wasn’t sustainable for me and my happiness, so I decided to leave my second job and spend more time with my family. I now have time to run errands, exercise, read, and get enough sleep.

4. I cut my hair! I’ve had long hair for the past ten years, and I really did love it. But after it took me almost an hour just to wash and brush my hair one day (I didn’t even brush it), I knew I was absolutely ready to make a big change. I cut off over a foot of hair and I haven’t looked back since. My morning routine is so much easier and I no longer have to worry about setting aside enough time to wash my hair.

I think that’s it for updates!

This yellow sweater is an absolute gem! Yellow is my happy colour. Every time I wear it I feel like I can take on anything. This sweater is particularly fantastic because it’s comfortable and it’s from a company that values sustainable, high quality fabrics. I’ve purchased a few items from them and they’ve all exceeded my expectations. This is not sponsored, by the way, I just really love their products. The yellow colour is sold out, but I’ve linked the same sweater in lilac.

Jumpsuit for Joy

a9

I absolutely love jumpsuits. They are as easy to outfit as dresses, but provide the security of pants. Not to mention, most of them are incredibly comfortable. This particular jumpsuit has been a favourite of mine this summer. The light, breathable fabric is absolutely perfect for those hot days. I decided to pair this jumpsuit with a classic denim jacket and white sneakers.

I’m also obsessed with this gorgeous bag from Shop Murphy. It’s the perfect shade of blush pink and it fits everything that I need. I paired it with a handkerchief for a more personalized look, but it’s absolutely adorable on it’s own as well.

Hello, Yellow!

I officially found my new favourite sweater! One of the most important fashion tips I have for you is to wear what you love, and I love anything and everything that is yellow. This sweater is also incredibly versatile, which is an added bonus. I paired it with this adorable headband which has the sweetest little pineapple print. A patterned headband is such a great way to polish off an outfit. This is my go-to pair of shorts. They are perfect for that unbelievable summer heat. I finished this look off with this reversible bag (which is a wardrobe staple by the way) and some python print Target flats. All together these elements build an outfit that is perfect for an ice cream date or a trip to the mall.
