may 2017 mood board



a busy month has passed by in a blur. filled with procrastinated reports and culminating’s that did not want to be completed. books that were going to be read but ended up under a pile of textbooks instead. acceptances and rejections came through. it’s okay. you’ll make it through. they had hope for me, and I had too much hope for myself. the rejection let myself go down for a night filled with tears and therapeutic art. that night is over and left behind. time to try again and move on forward. i’ll continue what i’m doing none the less, but I still won’t be over that hope that I had. one day soon, it may come. right now just focus on the present and now. don’t let the memories fade and make the most of the time left in this chapter of your life. soak up everything around you and record and keep these until the day you get old.

prompt: she gets up with a sign of relief. cups littered around with dried up tea leaves and tea stains dripping down the sides. books, littered papers, and sticky notes are thrown carelessly around the room. a fine layer of dust has collected on the book shelf filled with books and vintage accessories. the remains of april have been left behind. a whirlwind  of emotions and knowledge all somewhat left behind. she opens the curtains to see a bright sky with a slight breeze. raindrops covering every inch, to make sure she never forgets.

april showers by saamstaa featuring leather band watches

Although the yellow coat is woollen, it reminds me of a rain coat someone may wear in the rain. So, pretend its a rain coat. Anyways, this look consists of the yellow coat, with light coloured jeans, and a pair of light brown oxford shoes. A matching yellow phone case and watch are added to the look. Thin rimmed glasses are added making the outfit look complete. #april #spring

Spring 2017

Dear Reader,
This past week, I have posted outfits for the Spring 2017 Collection which consists of some trends this year and season which I love. Not only that, but these are some main styles that I have been loving. As you can see, this collection has more dresses and skirts as the weather has gotten so much nicer this past month. I  was inspired by my April 2017 Mood Board for the colour palette, as well as with some styles for the look. I enjoyed creating these sets, and I hope you all enjoy looking through them. 🙂

Dear Reader, enjoy this beautiful spring season.
