October Blogging Challenge! Day 17: Outfit of the Day!

Slightly late with my post, as usual! :’) Yesterday’s October Blogging Challenge prompt was Outfit of the Day! Perfect timing too, as it happened to coincide with the Sweetest Day of the Year ~ well according to the internet! Apparently Sweetest Day is all about giving candies to loves and friends, and I thought that was cute. We definitely need more LOVE and sweets in October!

So I used Sweetest Day as my outfit inspo! The dress was my very first ever Lolita dress from Bodyline which I thought would fit perfectly! Can never pass up an opportunity for frills and sweets!

Dress: Bodyline

Tights: Ardene

Jumper: Thrifted

Shoes: Thrifted

Bag: I believe off of Wish a couple of years ago. Was a nice surprise to find a bunch of sweets I had stashed in there! Apparently I haven’t used it in a while!

Accessories: The cake slice headband and donut brooch were made by me, and then various other trinkets, and of course the Ring Pop!

And just for fun, a surprise Sugar vs. sugar attack!!

October Blogging Challenge! Day 3: Outfit of the Day

I finally bought myself a full-length mirror so I’m absolutely ecstatic about being able to use it to share my outfit of the day photos!!

I kind of drove myself a little silly trying to decide what was going to be my FIRST mirror OOTD pick ~ shouldn’t it be special to showcase my kind of wild sense of style?! Maybe it’s a bit appropriate that Mad Hatter Day is right around the corner on October 6th, which is on Tuesday! The Mad Hatter is of course the host of the wild tea parties over in Wonderland and one of my favourite characters ever!

So in celebration, a quick and bonkers Mad Hatter inspired outfit!:

Stripes galore, clashing colours, twirly whirly hair, topsy tipsy teatime and of course topped off with a tilted tophat!

The dress is one of my favourite vintage thrift finds ever, and it was easy to throw on stripey socks, a BIG bow, and of course the hat tops it all off (doesn’t everyone just have a top hat kicking around just in case? You should!)

“We’re all quite mad here. You’ll fit right in!”

What I’m Wearing Wednesday… HANDMADE BROOCHES!

It was-52 degrees (that’s in celsius!) with windchill this morning, so I was kind of dressed up like the Pillsbury Dough Boy in all my layers rather than my usual floofy fancy-free self!

So to add the FUN to my outfits even when it’s dreary, I’ve been making more handmade brooches! I had previously showed off my Pie Day pie, and rainbow, but I’ve been busy creating all sorts since!

I like matching these guys to my outfits or even those silly “internet” holidays that are constantly trending on Twitter (I like using this website as you can always tell what “holidays” you should be celebrating!) just to make myself and other people happy!

Yesterday I made a quick little sunshine friend to hopefully remind people to BE HAPPY!

Tomorrow just happens to be National Hot Chocolate Day, and to celebrate I made this yummy looking brooch to spread awareness!

Happy Pie Day!!

Today is apparently National Pie Day! Of course it’s a silly holiday but I’m always ready to celebrate, because we all need a bit more FUN in life!

Pie Day calls for a special pie themed outfit for What I’m Wearing Wednesday, of course! Unfortunately I don’t have a pie dress (YET!), or an actual pie (that’s crusty!), but I have the next best thing: a homemade PIE PIN!

It’s a delicious piece of felt cherry pie! Don’t you just want to dig right in?!

I’m usually a pretty simple outfit wearer: just a dress, tights, and cardigan. So I really love a couple of thoughtful accessories – as tiny little details really bring your whole outfit together and allow you to be ANYTHING! So I threw on my pin and my day was a slice! 😀

Hope you’re having a super sweet day!

Something sweet and new… What I’m Wearing Wednesday!

I’ve been thinking of doing some weekly themed posts for some variety and to do something consistent here on the blog!! So welcome to the very first What I’m Wearing Wednesday!! I’m super ready to share some of the silly fun things I put on myself!

Like everybody, I’ve been eating SO MANY SWEETS lately… and have been enjoying every single one. But my tights are a little snug and my teeth probably won’t agree (rather terrified for the dentist next week – EEK!) so maybe it’s time to cut back a teeny tiny bit….

So instead I’ve exchanged my plates of cookies with dresses full of TREATS! This was my yummy outfit for work today where I dreamed of sugar plums perhaps a bit too much…:

Dress: Wish
Cardigan: Calvin Klein
Donut Scarf: Dollar Tree has them for Valentine’s Day 🙂

I do wish I could have got a full body shot without looking like a total dork (haha!), but I’m also wearing black Mary Janes, hot pink tights, and a donut necklace. I was on a sugar high all day today, so I’ll sleep well tonight!

(Can’t wait until the sun stays up a little bit longer so I can get a decent picture! I pretty much live in a cave without a lot of lighting so I need sunlight or I get fuzzy blur!)
