Bittersweet Nights, and Unicorns

This week has been quite a busy one, so I took a few days off to get things in order, as well as finish a few projects that I can’t wait to share with you very soon. I was hoping to get to do a bit of vintage shopping earlier in the week, but I could not even get motivated after being somewhat frosty and then exhausted from the autumn day. Fortunately, dressing brightly for most of the week helped to boost my happiness!

Several weeks ago, I was asked to try out a few items from TrendyFine, and selected this big comfy sweatshirt. I actually don’t have many sweatshirts at all, but I wanted to style this one. It has a screened unicorn on the front, which I loved. I figured that a little fashion-fable of a unicorn couldn't hurt!
When one typically thinks about unicorns, pastel colours, or somewhat ethereal and fanciful imagery comes to mind, but the simple black and white actually worked well for me. Plus, it was an easy outfit to wear to an evening art showing. It was one of those nights where I had a few options to choose from for attending multiple events. However, at the end of the day we were disappointed and wished that we had went to option A, instead of option C.

All I did was take off my blazer, to make this outfit more casual, which suited the laid back ambiance. And, thank goodness, we ate beforehand, as the food and wine options were underwhelming, to say the least. Has that ever happened to you before?

I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Do you have anything exciting planned?
Well, here's some unicorn inspiration to make you happy!

    Now, a sweatshirt is something I would just about never reach for (maybe I still haven't recovered from the daily wearing of a school sweatshirt). However, you make this combination look so effortlessly stylish through pairing it with a leather skirt. It's a little bit of genius.

  7. You have a talent. You take even simple things and make them beautiful. Using a unicorn without pink and bright colors is inspired. The b/w color-scheme works perfectly. And who doesn't like unicorns?
