The Return of Summer Goth

Well, I think it’s safe to say that it;’s officially summer – which means I’ve gone full summer goth! I refuse to relinquish my all black wardrobe, no matter how warm it gets.

All the Frills: New Nails

I don’t really do too much with my nails aside from the odd coat of polish (and even that’s getting more and more rare – I just can’t seem to find the time). But I’ve always wanted to try something “out there” (for me) so, for my birthday this year, I asked for a gift certificate to get a gel manicure and some nail extensions. And I definitely love the result but will admit that I find the length a bit difficult to work with and the upkeep to be more hassle than it’s worth. But I did enjoy the little vacation from myself!

Cycling Season

In honour of true summer weather being here and me getting my bike out of storage and all ready for a ride, I donned a shirt with a super cute bicycle print on it – I love a good outfit/life theme!

Leopard Touches

I am a huge of fan of leopard print and pairing this scarf with black dress seemed like a perfect opportunity to incorporate a little animal print into my outfit. Meanwhile I’m still on the hunt for the perfect leopard print dress…

I love the way this velvet blazer looks when the sunlight hits it – it just sort of twinkles and sparkles and the green seems to take on many different hues. I need to remember to get it out of my closet a bit more.

All the Frills: I Love a Good Tiara

There are few things I could imagine myself loving more than a very decadent book about a very decadent topic – tiaras. I used to check this book out of my local public library once a year or so when I was a poor undergrad, and later I was a poor grad student who had to buy academic books so I could never justify purchasing my very own copy of this gorgeous book. But that all changed a few years ago and now I can look at it lovingly whenever I want!

Even More Statement Sleeves

As I warned in my last post, I am a sucker for a statement sleeve – this time on a dress and in a colour that is not black. I’m nothing if not full of surprises that are simultaneously totally predictable.
