First of all, I have a new favourite dress. And new favourite shoes. It's been so long since I've been shopping for anything, and my style has changed a lot since working in retail--when wearing your store's clothing is a requirement. I feel happy that I can buy what I want to buy now. But I'm still jobless, so no shopping sprees for me.
The cotton dress/tunic is from Zara, and cost $20! The shoes are from Payless, a new eco-friendly brand they have called zoe&zac. I liked them so much I purchased them in both colours. Partly because I couldn't decide, but also because of BOGO--which I think is terrible branding, it should be buy one get one half off, but that just isn't right (BOGOHO). They were--unfortunately for me--$15 more than the US price. Go figure.
We went for a walk a few days ago around the University of Toronto campus. This is the best place for walks downtown because U of T is it's own little place completely unique from the rest of the city. I wish I could have gone to school here, but it never would have worked out in my favour. There is nothing there that vaguely interests me--except for the campus itself--I don't see myself as an art history major.
It was the first summer-like day, and everyone was outside enjoying it. I am so jealous of all the students that get to live in residence there, because all the residences are in pre 1900s buildings and churches. I would give anything just to go inside one of these buildings. Hart House is one of my favourites, I could spend forever in there just walking around. I am completely anti-residence, my school doesn't even have on-campus housing, but if I had known what living at U of T was like... Well...
Don't make fun of my freckles (I am officially a "freckleface").
