you must've dreamed it in your sleep

Hey folks! How's the day going? I crept outside into the sunshine today in order to snap some photos just for you! The whole time I was nervous that one of my new neighbours would walk out & find me being awkward in front of my tripod. I don't think anyone spotted me except their cat. That cat is always watching me! I'm sure this is a common problem among people & cats.

In honour of the spring weather, I pulled out these Mink Pink shorts. Okay, so I've actually been wearing them all winter, but I feel like florals and springtime go together like peanut butter & jelly, so I take extra care to wear them extra much during the springtime. Ignore my improper grammar. My grasp upon the English language is still a bit shakey after my 18+ years in the country. (I find myself extremely humourous sometimes.)
I've also been wearing my sunnies non-stop for the past couple of weeks because boy, that sun's been shining hard! It's starting to make me particularly doubtful of all those the-world-is-going-to-end conspirators. Sometimes I feel like people are so bored with life that they have to start thinking up little plots to make other people fearful that their own life may be ending soon.

Puppy came out from hiding to say hello, too! Boy, he sure does hate to have his picture taken... I think my smile has just enough touch of evil, and his eyes just enough touch of fear, to make this the most perfect photo of our relationship in front of the camera. And since this is a fashion blog, I should note that Moses is wearing his purple harness from PetSmart, which he's had for a couple of years now. Maybe it's time for a new one. I think something with spikes!

Besides Moses wearing his purple harness and me wearing my floral shorts, I was also wearing this Batman sweater from the H&M boy's section. It's such a great sweater because it's the perfect fit and it gets all the nerds! I also think it's a good reflection of my personal style - pretty quirky & a bit childish. But classic, all the same! Underneath I'm wearing my favourite bengal stripe button down. It's getting so shabby & I need to find a replacement soon....

I should also note that these shoes are super easy to walk in! I've had them for a bit now but never wear them because they seem daunting. I'll have to start wearing them's exactly like walking in flats, except sometimes a bit wobbly, especially over uneven surfaces. I always trust Steve Madden to make shoes that fit my needs.

Well, I have a fair bit of reading to do and an early day tomorrow. It's getting near the end of semester (uhhhh 4 & a half weeks left) so I'm all antsy to start summer and be able to devote more time to my sewing and crafty passions! Oh & don't forget to follow me on Pinterest!

Hey hey, just so you know, great post! But I can't see any of your pictures. It might just be me and my crappy internet but I just thought I'd better let you know. Hopefully it's just me!

Chloe, I would totally classify my style as quirky classy so it's funny that you said that! I love those floral shorts, I'm dying for some floral pants/shorts. I've got 3 weeks of class to go as well...seems like forever! Hang in there

Boring story: I found your blog maybe a couple years ago and really loved your style (AND YOUR HAIR!), and then forgot the name of it and just the other day I was like "what was that girl's blog called that I loved? I WILL NEVER FIND IT AGAIN! SOB!" But THEN, somebody on tumblr posted a photo from your last post and there was a link and I found your blog again! Hooray!! :D ...Yeah so anyway I'm super excited about this and I shall start reading your blog religiously now because you are seriously the coolest. LOVE your tattoo (I wish I had the balls to get such a big one, and on the thiiiighhh man!), and your hair, and your amazing style. Can't wait to read about your life more. Uhh. Sorry this comment was weird.

I also watched Chaplin with Robert Downey Jr the other day! anwyays, I saw you on tumblr and have been reading your blog now for the past hour and a half! you're so cute and we share a lot of similar interests. including chaplin and i'm assuming you love all things French like I do. Well cheers to helping me procrastinate on my French Revolution homework!
