Shirt: DIY Bluenotes $7, Skirt: H&M $7, Sandals: Spring $25
How do you like my new sandals everyone!!!! As i mentioned in previous posts it has been a struggle to find some that fit me but i finally got two pairs a few weeks ago. I really miss fall and spring clothes, the summer is lovely but you can only wear two maybe three things it is much harder to come up with new outfits. I havent posted in over two weeks (ugh how terrible) so i thought i might write something a bit more in this one then my usual stuff. I read these two (Part 1, Part 2) articles a few weeks ago which really resonated with me. I know when i first started blogging it was hard to think immediately that i needed to lose ten or more pounds after seeing the photos i took of myself. It took me ages before i could post something on a site like Lookbook were everyone is thin, gorgeous and looks straight out of a magazine. I would consider myself pretty normal/average looking but it is difficult not to compare how i look to other bloggers. I wont ever be a size zero just not built for it there are things i would totally change about my face (my lack of a good chin for one) and dont even get me started on my legs. But i think everyone has those insecurities and good days were you think you might look alright and then others when you pretty much just want to wear a paper bag lol. I know love fashion blogs written by regular girls who when you read there posts you feel like you can relate to them on some level. I would love to hear everyones thoughts on the articles and i hope you all have a lovely evening :)

Blazar: Thrift $4, Shorts: Thrift $2, Shirt: ?, Tights: some store $5, Boots: Aldo $54
I was quite excited about this outfit as it is the first time in almost a year i have been able to wear these shorts somewhat comfortably. A few months ago i couldnt um get them done up even after five minutes of pulling, tugging squeezing and sucking in. Then if i could button them it was not a very pretty site so i was thrilled when i put them on the other day without a problem. I am pretty straight up and down aka no waist so they are still a little tighter there then i would like i think eating anything might be a problem. But hopefully in a little while they will fit perfectly. I love my black boots soooooo much and they will be sorely missed when the weather gets to hot for me to wear them. I've ordered two pairs of sandals which should arrive sometime this week so cross your fingers these babies fit me as i am starting to get a little frantic in my search for some!! I had a hard time getting these pictures again ( i think i getting into a slump!) at one point i was just going to quit but my sister came out and took so funny photos of me jumping or posing with the watering can :). They were hilarious and i looked much happier in my photos afterwards, i didnt include any of those but i was thinking sometime i should do a blooper post becuase they were pretty funny. I hope everyone has a lovely evening!!

Jacket: Gift, Jeans: Bluenotes $15, Top: thrift $5, Wedges: $3
I am not impressed with these photos at all, i was quite fond of the outfit so i am really disappointed. Looking through all of the pictures i took i think these were the worst face photos i have taken basically ever. I looked like i wanted to pummel someone which is pretty much how i felt so i guess it was fitting, definitely not a good day! I have been such a shit blogger (sorry excuse the language but it is true) i havent been posting or commenting at all which i feel really crappy about, kindof going through a little depressed period but hopefully i will get back into the swing of things soon. On a better note last time i wore these wedges my toe hurt so bad i could barely stand after thirty minutes but it barely twinged at all this time so i think i can wear these babies a little more often, although i am over six feet when i have them on! I didnt really mean for this post to a advertisement for Tim Hortons but the only photos which were remotely ok were the ones where i was holding my drink. Ice Caps are my fave, i worked at a Tim's for over a year and i am a little addicted to them now. I hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!!!

Blazer: Wearhouse One $30, Tanktop: ??? (super old), Skirt: Fairweathers $15, Shoes: Spring $24, Belt: Thrift $2
Sorry for my blogging absence everyone i dont even have a good excuse why i havent posted in over a week so i will just promise to do better and blog more often!!! I am really tired right now so this post is going to be a short one. I literally own no sandals besides the ones in my previous post which is just terrible now that the weather has finally got warmer. I tried to order some online but at first i got the wrong size and then they sent me the a different colour so now the sandals i wanted are completely sold out which is quite sad. I have really boney weird feet so it is really hard for me to find any that fit!! I definitely need to find more then one pair soon though. I hope you all have a lovely evening :).
