So, I was curating @PeopleofKW on Twitter last week and on Monday, decided to blog everyday last week. Of course, you already know that it didn't quite turn out that way, because midterms happened. Again. But rejoice, midterms are now over and I've got two blissful (sort of) weeks before all the assignments and projects start piling up before the end of term. Fourth year of university is seriously no joke.

Remember how I used to shoot my own outfits and all that in the efforts of being a personal style blogger? Those were fun. (If you're interested in my #ootd's, by the way, check out my Instagram. Selfies are included free of charge.) I've been interested in starting those up again, although the logistical issues are always the worst -- camera, photographer, time. But in the meantime, I'm also seriously enjoying the wealth of outfit inspiration that is Tumblr.

Anyway, as long as I'm not further swamped with work this week, I'll be seeing you soon in my next post!

1Piece/2Ways: Over-the-Knee Boots

A style post? Yay! This time, I'm featuring an autumn favourite: the over-the-knee boot. It's a classic but can also be difficult to style sometimes because they can look slightly intimidating. They're kind of sophisticated but can also add a certain 'punch' to an outfit. So here are two looks I've styled with said boots!

#1 Dress It Down

Inspired by a real life outfit that I myself wore -- here, I'm keeping it cozy with a knit cardigan over a fitted plaid shirt and skinny jeans. The shirt gives a great touch of colour -- matching with fall-appropriate red lip as well -- while the rest of the outfit is kept neutral. It's a great casual outfit -- and you can take my word for it because I've basically worn it before! ;)

Current State of Mind #1

Basically the less Tumblr version of "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened." "Live with no regrets." "Life goes on."

It's been kind of a tumultuous week, what with midterms and essays, a constant battle between lethargy and restlessness, and the stress of trying to pull myself together. But as someone said to me recently, "having it all together" is merely an illusion. I guess I don't mind.

Maybe I'm still coming to terms with things. Things like being myself. *insert thumbs up*

PS. Promise this is last of the autumn/train track photos! ;) hehe.

Autumn Leaves / Photo Diary

This is a thing. ;)

As I mentioned in my Thanksgiving post, I went on a road trip of sorts with my family -- to Sault Ste. Marie! We joined this train tour -- which I have mixed feelings about, because the views were stellar, but it meant about more or less 9 hours of sitting on said train. Anyway, thought I'd share some gorgeous photos.

TUESDAY TEN / Beanie Outfits

I've never particularly been a hat person until this year -- I'd always thought they looked weird, but I think since coming back from Korea, my thoughts on this have slowly changed. Keeping warm aside, they're also really great to cover up bedhead or flat hair. Case in point, an example here on my Instagram. I've also underestimated their effect on a simple outfit -- another Instagram example here.

The only annoying thing is, of course, once you put it on, you can't take it off because of the dreaded hat hair! #styleproblems
