My lovely friend with a lovely filled closet did a big clothing purge and invited me over to take what I like. She had more than a few amazing pieces which I am now wearing over and over, thanks Susan! When we are in situations like this, such as at a clothing swap it is such a freeing (literally) “shopping” experience. This is our chance to be bold, try something new, see if a piece we wouldn’t expect will become something we’ll wear until it’s worn out. These clothes do not cost us anything, so why not try the cutesy prairie dress, the bell bottoms or over the top party shirt? Even if you wear it once (or not at all) it can then be traded again at the next swap! If you’ve never been to a swap before, I’ve written this post on how to host your own.
Racer back tank, ruffly beach dress, white painters shirt.
Perfect fit tights, cutest knit teal sweater, spiderweb gloves and a simple cardigan.
Stripes galore, I am living in this sweater and the yellow stripes she painted herself.
Susan Tops. Pleated Skirt, Free from Swap. Circle Necklace, Ebay. Stitches Tights. Thrifted Sandals $3.

Day 6 Outfit
I am such a fan of this butterfly cardigan and striped top. Yay for clothing swaps, I always get to feel like I have *new* clothing in my closet. There is another swap next weekend! If you are on the lower mainland you should come (message me).
On the last day of the yoga course I was feeling colorful, which ended up being helpful for my mood as it was a very emotional day. We were doing provocative meditations and digging deep into our emotions a little bit so I wasn’t surprised when I broke down in tears to release the tension I was holding. As someone who usually holds back tears it felt great to let go.
Butterfly Cardigan, Peach Striped Top and Yellow Tank Top, Free from Swap. Lululemon Pants, Gift.

Day 5 Outfit
I’ve really wanted to make a top knot, but I don’t have long enough hair yet so put my hair up in a ponytail, wrapped brown fabric in a circle over the elastic and then made a bun out of my hair overtop, easy.
H&M Daisies Dress with Pockets. Mustard Striped Scarf, bought when travelling in Crete, Greece and ripped a week after arriving home in Canada.
*Total Eclipse of the Heart*
Every day I am singing my own songs, a few others and this one by Bonnie Tyler.

I wake up and this parody is stuck in my head, so I thought I’d share that annoyance with you all.
