Plaid Spring Style 

Weekend Update 

This past Easter weekend was very busy yet still relaxing. I can't tell you how great it is to have 4 days off of school. It really pains me to have to go back to school especially with final exams coming up. Those 2 weeks of exam prep followed by 2 weeks of actual exams are such a toxic time for me. Not only do I feel constantly drained, but I am so emotionally worn out during those weeks, that by the end, all I want to do is sleep for 2 days. The good news is that May 1st is officially summer break! I honestly plan to take the first week of May and do nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Plaid Spring Style 

Okay, so maybe it is not a spring look, but hear me out; it is not yet spring in Montreal. We are having this bi-polar weather and it's driving me insane. One day it's sunny and 12 degrees, the next day it's -6 degrees and snowing uncontrollably. All this to say that I can't put away my winter wardrobe, but I need access to my summer wardrobe. To save space, every 2 seasons I always switch-out my sweaters and coats for summer dresses and light clothing. Now I have my winter wardrobe still hung-up, and boxes everywhere on my floor with my summer stuff. I honestly think mother nature decided to skip spring altogether for Montreal and sometime in June, summer will magically appear.

I wore a uniform for 5 years in highschool. It was a whole getup that drove me nuts for 5 whole years. It was everything; blazer, kilt, knee-high socks, button up shirt, vest, tie and dress shoes. Never in my life did I think I would wear plaid after graduating, or even hunter green for that matter. Yet, I actually love hunter green these days and I have like 9 plaid button-ups and 3 plaid skirts. I also love wearing skirts because they are most flattering on my body type. 

Taking An Outfit From Day-to-Night

It happens more often than not that I have to go straight from school to something else. It's the oldest trick in the book, but throw on a pair of heels and a touch of lipstick and you're ready to go (I believe there is even a quote regarding what I just mentioned). I personally veer more often towards reds and deep-reds rather than pinks and other colors. I think it's because the blond hair looks best with reds, and pink looks a little too Barbie-esque. I always keep one of my red lipsticks on me in case I need to elevate any look in a moment's time.

So basically, throw-on a pair of heels, a nice red lip, and out the door you go. 

That is my little update! I am excited to be DONE with school (5 weeks and counting).
