This post started after I wandered into Urban Outfitters on Yonge St. here in Toronto. I was going there in the hopes of seeing my friend but after finding out she wasn’t there I decided to take the opportunity to check out their new spring goodies. Now, I’ll be honest, I haven’t shopped at Urban in quite a while. As a teenager it was my clothing mecca, a place I would go not only to buy but also to pay homage to (what I thought) were the coolest and best clothes ever. Anyway, I’ve grown up and it no longer tempts me like before but let me tell you: today, I could have done some damage. Before I knew it my arms were full and I was telling them my name at the change rooms. Long story short, it left me daydreaming about an outfit I would wear if I bought a few of the things I had picked out1. This skirt was a proper high-waisted fit, not the kind that leaves an annoying bit of tummy showing if you pair it with something cropped—I hate when that happens; the midriff is cool but not always conducive to everyday life. The sweater is one I found online because the one I truly wanted to share was mysteriously missing from their online store. This one works nicely too, but the one I really want is this shrunken cream cropped sweater with gold thread running through it—it’s the perfect dressy but not dressy sweater. I happened to be wearing my hue tights and Rachel Comey boots during this try-on session and the outfit just seemed to come together; lucky for me I own those items so my daydreaming stops at a skirt and sweater.
