Outfit Snap: A Cupcake-ful Weekend

Outfit Snap: A Cupcake-ful Weekend

I’ve been really lazy about posting these, so I’m going to start with the most recent and slooooowly work my way backwards. Hopefully at some point I’ll catch up! ☆

Normally I’m the sort of person who doesn’t put too much thought into her outfit. I’m not saying that I just throw on anything that’s clean–although that is sometimes tempting–but I know a few girls who spend hours or even days agonizing over which blouse is better than the other blouse, and how many rings is too many rings, or whether or not to wear the beautiful but horribly uncomfortable shoes. I am not one of those girls. I tend to pull out a few garments that caught my eye that morning, and the first outfit to match is the winner. When I know I’ll be spending time with others, particularly people whose company I particularly enjoy, I’ll give some extra consideration. I intended to so on Friday, because I knew I’d be seeing some friends.

Retina-Burning Pink
I didn’t remember to take a picture until it was quite late and totally dark outside! Argh!

However, that didn’t work out the way I had imagined, because I had an appointment that morning to get my hair trimmed (the last one before my favourite stylist graduates… ;_; ) and miscalculated the time it would take me to wash some dishes. I flew out of the house in a hurry; so much for adding some extra consideration! u_u

I wore my pink Angelic☆School jumperskirt with a white short-sleeved blouse and a pink cardigan. The fabric of this jumperskirt is actually a very vibrant pink. It doesn’t necessarily look like it at first glance due to the striping, but the pink is very bright. I happen to have a cardigan that is also unusually bright–and thus exactly the same shade of pink–so I wore them together. I tend to prefer pairing short-sleeved blouses and cardigans rather than wearing long-sleeved blouses when the weather is chilly but not very cold, because I always seem to be doing something stupid that puts my shirt cuffs in danger of being stained. It’s easier for me to push up the sleeves of a cardigan.

Pinktastic Pink
I try to adjust the colours of indoor pictures to compensate for the yellow cast, but it’s so intense that I can never seem to get the colours balanced properly.

I pulled my hair back into pigtails for a few reasons. It’s one of the quickest styles that I can manage. It’s also helpful for my hair to be pulled back when I have my fringe trimmed. When my hair dries it tends to permanently affix itself in whatever style it decided to be in, so trying to part my fringe away from the rest of my hair can be quite an ordeal! It’s so nice to be able to see without having rogue longer hairs poking me in the eyes~

During the day I wore my newest pair of shoes, which I am head-over-heels in love with~ ♥ I didn’t want to wear them on the carpeting, though–it was very drizzling rain on-and-off all day, so they were wet and dirty on the bottoms after walking around outside. (I wanted to wear the new shoes so intensely that I went without rainboots, even though that would have been much more practical.)

One of my friends took this picture when we were at the cupcake shop. I was so happy that it was a mostly sunny day, despite the rain. (This photo borrowed from a friend’s Flickr~ ♥)

I intended to paint my nails that morning, but ran out of time. I feel so embarrassed that the polish is so clearly on its last leg. I like to paint my nails regularly, since nail polish is one of the few cosmetics that I am not allergic to, but I often pick colours that don’t match my clothes at all! (It’s just too much fun to try something new~)

Dot Dot Dot
The wind was really intense! My hair was waving around like a banner, although thankfully it wasn’t being pushed in my face.

The next day I didn’t have any real plans, so I did some cleaning around the house, dressed up, and enjoyed tea sitting near the front window. The sunlight was very nice~ It was a cloudy day, so the light intensified or faded regularly with the movement of the clouds, but I’ve always been a fan of that sort of day. I have my fingers crossed that it will feel like spring soon! It’s still quite cold on most days, although the weather on Saturday was balmy by comparison.

My husband called later on in the afternoon to let me know that he’d be home an hour early, and I was very happy to spend the rest of the day with him. ♥ We went out for cupcakes. (The cupcake shop’s worker remembered me from the day before… It’s hard to be sneaky when you are very pink.)

I decided to wear this short-sleeved dress to take advantage of the warmth, although I still needed a coat. I didn’t realize until after I got home that polka dots are the April theme for EGL. I love polka dots! I feel like I’ve participated at least a little bit~

Polka Dotted
This time I stood in the shade, because the sunlight was pretty intense. The last time I stood in the full sunlight it really washed me out, and the shadow from my made my eyes seem like black pits! (It was scary.)

I contemplated wearing the choker in my hair as a very thin headdress, but I don’t think it’s quite long enough. Instead I settled for wearing the choker as a choker and putting a white bow in my hair. I have some polka dot hair accessories made of matching fabric, but my husband likes it when I leave my hair down.

It doesn’t show up very well in the pictures, but my tights are polka dotted as well! I was so happy when a friend told me where to find polka dot tights. They’re so cute! ♥ The shoes are my new beloved shoes. They look almost identical to another pair of shoes that I’ve owned forever, but I’m boring enough that having another pair of shoes that so closely matches other shoes that I love is awesome to me!

I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend~ ♥
