mountain sound

So my school is on a mountain, and therefore all the buildings are built at different heights. I finally found out how to get onto the roof of this one building which overlooks the north side of Burrard Inlet. It snowed over night just at the higher altitudes on the mountains in the distance, which was beautiful in the background of the green, red and yellow trees here. The second picture is from Saturday when I also went to Stanley Park and took some pictures there! (more at www.fashion-lesscity.tumblr.com)
Anyways, I went thrifting on Friday and found 3 amazing sweaters for under $10 each. This one is my favourite because it has earth tones in it, of course. I also went to the newly opened Topshop in Pacific Center downtown on Saturday and got a few things, plus this free hat! I hope everyone likes it, and feel free to comment and let me know your thoughts!

three angles, one sunset

I couldn't even believe how gorgeous the sunset was tonight. The fall colours and the sun against the clouds created surreal colour combinations. The first picture is facing west-southwest, the second facing south, and the third facing northwest (out my dorm window), which gives an all around feel to the different angles of the sun.

I think of timing all the time

First things first, Ellie Goulding's new album came out, and although its not all that I had hoped for, it's still worth a listen! Secondly, winter has arrived in Vancouver and, although it hasn't begun to rain quite yet, I have been living completely engulfed in the clouds the past 3 days (as you can see by the top picture).
As the weather has become significantly colder and more damp, I have been bundling up the past few days, and yesterdays look I was particularly fond of. I need to buy more think socks because they are so comfy and warm in my combat boots. As well, this scarf is my absolute favourite thing right now because of how think, soft, and warm it is...not to mention that it is also has a very fall pallet. I wanted that to be the focal point, so I purposely dressed in mostly black and grey to make the pumpkin and cranberry pop. The fact that I'm wearing this little colour is in fact an anomaly in my dressing habits. Check back soon for more looks!

I was following the pack

At first I was apprehensive to wear three articles that were all mostly blue. But then I just though to hell with it because I love blue! The cardigan and shirt are still my favourites, and I really like how the pearl buttons on my jean shirt go with the creamy white in the stitching of my cardigan. It was super cold yesterday and I thought that this look, in a way, reflected the tones of the light through the clouds. That actually went through my mind, I'm not even making it up. Anyways, that's all for now! Off to study for psych!

any old lie will do

So this is my first post since I moved to Vancouver! The top two pictures are of downtown and the view outside my dorm. I love this city!!
This look was something I thought up this weekend, and I wanted to show off a couple of new pieces to my wardrobe all in one. These shoes are incredible and I wish I had more opportunities to wear them. I got them on sale at Nordstom in Chicago for $100 to make them even more incredible. I bought these emerald pants because they're such a cool, unique colour; as opposed to a more army or khaki green. Again, the title for the look comes from Fleet Foxes self titled album, which has still been on repeat since the last time I posted.
