Oh Sweet Wonderful You





What I'm wearing:
Vest - thrifted Jacob, Dress - Suzy Shier, Sandals - American Eagle, Belt - thrifted 


My boyfriend and I took a little drive on the country roads just outside of the city for something to do today. He was my wonderful photographer as always :) We really miss living back in our little hometown in Northern Ontario you don't have to drive to just get away from everyone. I have one year left in my undergrad but I am soo over Guelph. No idea what I'll do when I graduate though lol. For now I'm STILL searching for a summer job to support my clothes addiction. 
Anyway, I just got this dress yesterday and I love it!! It's so soft and bright-coloured :) and you gotta love ruffles!

Value Village 50% off haul



Value Village has 50% off all used clothing and accessories days every so often so I decided to take advantage of it. I bought 2 pairs of jeans ( $4 and $3.50!), a silky scarf, a sweater vest tank top, skinny black belt, black dress with little white polka dots, and a gold colour watch. 
All for less than $25.00!! It's definitely worth it to go on the half-off days. Sometimes it's not really worth it to buy stuff full price at Value Village since their pricing is a bit steep for the quality.

So I made the jeans into cut-off shorts. I'll need to poke another hole into the belt so I can wear it around my waist. The watch hopefully only needs new batteries. And I'm planning on taking in the dress, turning it into a strapless and I'll need to put in a zipper since it's not stretchy fabric.

Take care,
