A Hobo Chic Thanksgiving
This morning, I woke up at 7 am and went for a 2 hour workout with my wonderful gym buddy Tia. After our gym session was over, however, my inclination to do anything productive went steeply downhill and I felt the overwhelming to spend the rest of the day with a hot cup of tea and a good Netflix lineup. Somehow, I managed to push through the feeling of extreme laziness to clean my room, blog, start a class research project, and other necessaries. Believe me, I much rather would have preferred sitting around eating Thanksgiving leftovers (by the way, I had the most delicious dinner last night) and watching ocean documentaries.
Since we're on a Netflix tangent, I am feeling that quaint depression after completely finishing a noir murder mystery series called The Killing. Set in Seattle but filmed in Vancouver, this rainy, bleak, and devastating drama grabbed my attention from the beginning until the very end of the entire four seasons. I can't remember crying this much for a television series (or for anything) in recent memory-- the character development is amazing and the plot twists are gripping. After falling in love with the main two characters, it was very hard to say goodbye and realize that there are no more seasons to which I can look forward. We are most certainly a Netflix-and-television-obsessed generation! In fact, last night at Thanksgiving dinner I recall that half of the conversation revolved around our favourite shows and movies...
In terms of this outfit, I decided to give 'hobo chic' a try with this laid back combination of a long cardigan, a midi skirt, toque, and flat booties. I am in love with the sweet details on this Aldo toque and Topshop midi skirt-- both have gotten me compliments aplenty already! I also was relieved to finally find a decent cardigan while shopping at The Gap with Sarah. I am excited to wear it on colder days when I feel like hiding under layers of stylish warmth during long days at school or work.
