Camo Canvas


Recently, I've given up on my sorry attempts to spend less and have been indulging in the tempting end-of-season sales at all of my favourite stores. I might try to justify my lack of control by saying that it's a reward for doing well in school but I think we can be honest here and acknowledge it's due to my shopping addiction. It doesn't help that I work in a mall-- I am constantly bombarded by intriguing coupons and special offers given to my workplace by our retail tenants. It's a small wonder that I can't resist all of the amazing deals to be had!  

In fact, just over the past week, I raided the treasure troves of Topshop and The Gap and managed to score some impressive deals. For instance, these camo canvas cropped pants were a mere $11.19 after I found them reduced to $19.99 and got an extra 50% off the item with a special coupon. I think this piece will be perfect for cooler spring and summer days and nights, but still lightweight enough to be comfortable when it gets warmer. Plus, the camo print makes any sartorial combination just a little bit more edgy and interesting. For this outfit, I also wore for the first time my straw hat that I expect to be wearing constantly once the summer heat and sunshine kicks in.

In other news, I'm leaving for my Miami and Bahamas trip in almost exactly one week! The excitement is quickly mounting and I've almost entirely planned out my wardrobe for the trip. However, I feel that I'll need to pick up a few more items before I'm completely ready, such as a new bikini and flip flops. I can already feel that hot summery heat on my skin and the contentment of being free from both school and work-- ahhh heaven!

What are you most looking forward to doing this upcoming summer?

  2. Beaufitul look, I love your heels!
    I truly understand you. I am also kind of an shopping addict. The only problem is that I rarely find something that I really like so most of the time I am running around with a face like there has been 10 days rain because I can't finde somehhing that I like :D
