I discovered over the past few months that I do not handle boredom very well. I would much rather be taking five classes a semester and working long hours than having NOTHING to do since I’m near the end of my university degree and unemployed. Boredom makes me lazy. It’s gotten so bad I’ve started taking up piano lessons again. So…you’re not alone. I’ve had a rough month or so, and I’m taking steps to improve my life.
Also, I have way too much time to shop. I was looking around for a bikini a few days ago at CHANGE and the SA asked me if I worked at the mall because she saw me around so often. Signs you’re a shopaholic.
Summer’s in full swing, so my post is a tad late, but I thought I’d compile my typical seasonal wish list to keep my purchases “in check” and avoid impulse buys.
Boyfriend jeans. I’ve recently acquired an unexpected desire to be a bit more “casual”. Maybe look like one of those French girls who throw on some jeans and a striped sweater and look fabulously chic.
Statement necklace. You know the gold H&M collar necklace I’ve worn on, maybe, 5 different posts? I need a new statement piece.
Leather jacket. Vancouver provides for a lot of in-between weather. Not warm enough for short sleeves, but not too cold to require a winter jacket. All my blazers get quite a bit of use, but I’m looking for alternatives, as it does get boring after a while. Tweed, peacoats, thick cardigans that don’t make me look fat?
Any recommendations on an affordable, decent-quality leather jacket? I love some of the Mackage jackets at Aritzia, but will have to wait for their boxing-day sale...
