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! 😀
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…:
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!)
I’m so excited to share this with you!! I LOVE MY CLOSET. It doesn’t even have a door because I love looking at it so much!
Because it’s completely stuffed to the brim with colour and pretty dresses! I started exclusively wearing dresses about three years ago (it just sort of… happened) and got rid of every remaining piece of black in my wardrobe last year and haven’t looked back!
I mostly wear vintage inspired dresses (with mostly florals, polkadots, and cute yummy prints!) with either long sleeves, or a cardigan on top. And always with colourful tights (I have bins full of them)! My style is strongly influenced by Japanese and kawaii styles, and I have a couple of Lolita dresses (a Japanese clothing style which in turn is inspired by Rococo/Victorian fashion – with ruffles and petticoats and intricate details!) and hope to acquire a few more soon!
Here are some of the outfits that I’ve thrown together (as I mentioned previously, I don’t take all that many selfies, but I’m working on it! Some of my outfits are really fun and I want to show them off)!
One of my 2019 goals is to start sewing my own dresses because sometimes it’s hard to find vintagey things that I really like and having the freedom to wear what I have in my head would be amazing!
My closet also has a ton of hairbows, wigs, scarves, petticoats, piles and piles of cute socks, my novelty bag collection, a shelf full of candy (hahaha! always need it close by!), a spot for all my jewellery, my Hello Kitty hamper, and all my empty boxes for collectables (lots of Sailor Moon proplica boxes and Funkos up there!) There’s pretty much no room at all for anything else (but I will try ;))!
I spent New Years Eve enjoying a bunch of leftover Christmas treats, making a quick colourful 2019 headband, and chasing after my cat who kept stealing the pompoms!
I had so much fun, but ended up falling asleep at 9 – oops!!! I was trying to stay up, and I was even going to set an alarm just in case I fell asleep but then fell asleep before I could do THAT! Hahaha!
I ended up watching fireworks this morning (on Youtube ;))!
My one big goal for this year is to CREATE EVERY SINGLE DAY! Even if it’s just a little bit of something. I dream of having a magical house full to the brim with colour, fabrics, knitted things, craft projects, and the constant smell of fresh baked goodies ~ my own enchanted little paradise!! And then post my creations every day (or so) here on this blog! I hope this challenge will allow me to be productive and constantly learn new skills!
I also just want to be HAPPY this year, fight through my anxiety, be healthy, and as bright and unique as can possibly be!
2018 was my absolutely best year ever, and 2019 is guaranteed to be EVEN BETTER! Can’t wait to enjoy it with you all! xoxo
This has always been one of my favourite things to learn about people… What’s in your bag used to be a huge feature on personal webpages back in the 90s/early 2000s, and probably what got me fully obsessed with the internet in the first place. I just think it’s really an interesting personal look at what people behind the screen are really like!
I really looove novelty handbags (especially delicious looking ones)! I have so many, even though I tend to stick with the exact same one for months at a time. They’re fun for coordinating outfits and scream FUN!
But right now, this is the bag that I’m using for work:
It’s not quite as fun on the outside (but it is VERY pink as strangers tell me all the time!). At least the insides are full of excitement:
Hello Kitty wallet and phone case (who else?!)
My little donut pouch holds bobby pins and other doo-dads
Lipchap, lipchap, and an extra lipchap! I’m addicted
Hair bows, clips, and hair ties
My work ID and sparkly pink lanyard (yes, I’m the buildings pink girl)
Candy, candy, candy. These are some yummy Japanese sweets I got from my absolute favourite shop.
The bottom of the bag (fortunately I didn’t dump it out!) is a ton of loose change, more bobby pins, hair ties, and who else knows what!
