I count down to the beginning of October every year. I like to celebrate Halloween for a full month, and as soon as the calendar flips over to October first, I’m in full-on spooky mode. I get out all my favourite horror movies, flip over to my goth playlist and start working some creepy elements into my wardrobe.
I couldn’t resist wearing this Sick Sad World tee shirt to ring in October. I love the green spiral detail and the creepy eye peering out from the centre. The fact that it’s an homage to one of my all-time favourite cartoons, Daria, is just icing on the cake.
I am wearing:
- Sick Sad World tee shirt from Pulp Kitchen
- Green skater skirt from Princess Highway
- Diana Ferrari ballet flats (thrifted)
- Black tights from Target
- Vintage striped scarf
- Opal earrings from my grandmother
- Green beaded necklace from Chapel Street Bazaar
- Vintage cocktail ring from Faye Bella
I wore this outfit to go grocery shopping, work on some writing and have a coffee date with my boyfriend’s mum.
Do you do Halloween-themed outfits? What do you like to wear when the spooky season rolls around?
So, there’s a pair of pants that I’ve been eyeing off for about three weeks. At first I told myself that I shouldn’t buy the pants, because Christmas is coming up and I should be spending money on things for other people. Also, I have tonnes of clothes.
But then I started thinking about how funky they are and how well they reflect my style. I started imagining all the things I have that would look cute with them. I began stroking the fabric and thinking about how light and cool they’d be in summer.
You know where I’m going with this, right? Sure you do..
I bought the pants. And they’re just as funky and comfy as I expected they would be. They’re a lightweight, satiny material that’s so gorgeous and quite stylish as well.
Plus they have pockets. Pockets! They’re pretty much perfect.
I am wearing:
– Empire Records tee shirt from etsy
– Blue printed pants from Target
– Green loafers from Rubi Shoes
– Ornate cross necklace from Diva
– Assorted silver rings
This tee shirt features one of my favourite quotes from one of my favourite films: Empire Records. It reads:
“I do not regret the things I have done, but those I did not do”.
Wise words from the not-so-wise Lucas.
And so, on that note, I’ve decided not to regret buying my pants and instead set my sights on doing some of the things I don’t want to regret neglecting. I love it when my clothes tell me not to feel guilty for buying more clothes!
