A Walk in the Park

I know it's been a while since posting an outfit post but things have been distracting lately, obviously. One thing that makes me happy is getting dressed up and playing around with different things in my closet. And shopping of course! When I get stressed out, I shop. When I was in school and had just finished a really hard exam I would head straight to the mall! haha. Shopping is very therapeutic for me, as Im sure it is for alot of people. And lucky for us a lovely Chinook came into town so the weather was so warm!!

You know that one item you've always had on your wish list but can NEVER find it!?? Well that was me and this skirt! I don't know if I just had bad luck when I went out shopping or maybe I was just too cheap to look in the more expensive stores, but I've finally found it! And it was at Ardenes of ALL places. One of my biggest pet peaves when searching for a skirt like this is finding a gorgeous drop dead flowy maxi skirt and finding out they have a super mini, super thin skirt/slip underneath because the outer fabric is too sheer. Like this image below:



I wouldn't mind it if it was a bit longer but it seriously barely covers my big butt most of the time. And Im too conscious of my legs to buy something like that. I need the under fabric to go at least to my knees or preferably to the length of the outer fabric of the skirt! SO when I saw this skirt I didn't hesitate for a second to buy! Especially since it was ON SALE!

Also, I've discovered that I now love hats! Never in my life did I think I would love the look of a hat on me. Usually most hats don't even fit on my head because of the amount and volume of my hair. But I saw this one, tried it on a fell in loveeee! The quality is amazing and it fits like a glove. I think a good hat just finishes off an outfit in all the right ways!
