Yet Another Maxi Skirt

Yesterday I was out at a mall with my family and I found a great sale on maxi skirts (10$ for one) so I bought a couple and here’s one.

This one is my favorite of the two, the other one is just black and gray. I really wanted to get a colorful one because I have to many gray and black things… so I got this one which still has gray in it but pink stripes is better then say white or black! 🙂

I love this skirt so much! I like having pieces of clothes that can provide a pop of color to my outfit! It can be anything from a skirt, to a necklace. Just something to turn a boring outfit into a less boring outfit. 😀

My “choker” is actually a silver chain I had and I just put it to fit around my neck like a choker. Have you ever done anything like that?

OOTD \\ How to get dye out of clothes

Nothing really special happened today except I finally remembered to take pictures of my outfit for a post. 😀

I was looking though my closet wondering what skirt to wear, I saw this one and I remembered how much I liked it so I decided to wear it. 😉  It’s one of those days I don’t have to wear shoes! 😀

I layered two necklaces to do this.

Outfit details:

Shirt- Reitmans  

Cami- Dollar Store

Skirt- Thrift Store 

Necklaces- Gift\Thrift Store 

Bracelet- Gift  

The other thing I wanted to include in this post is a cleaning hack\stain removal I learned this week. My sister got a new (pink) skirt recently and I forgot to wash it separately so pink dye got on not everything but a few things like one of my favorite dressy tops, my brother’s white t-shirts, and my other brother’s church pants. oh and they also went though the dryer which usually sets a stain!

Obviously I wasn’t happy, I mean common that’s one of my favorite tops! I went online and Googled my problem, the first thing I found was something saying I should buy this “wonder” product, I’m a “take action now while I’m thinking about it” kinda girl so I kept looking. There was pretty much only one other thing I tried to and it didn’t work…. So I grabbed a bowl filled it with hot water, added some vinegar and soaked my shirt really well and wrung it out. I did this three times and I could see the dye coming out. I then simply hung it on the clothes line and waited to see if all the dye had come out and it had! I did the same thing for my brothers stuff and it worked as well.

So yeah if that ever happens to you at least try doing that.

Thanks for reading!

I love the denim skirt; I got it a couple days ago at a Thrift Store, (that’s the story of my life 😀 ).  It’s super stretchy, comfortable, and I like the color too (not to dark, not to light).

I think this outfit would be kind of boring if not for the pop of color that the camisole gives! Your thoughts?  

Outfit details:

Shirt- Reitman’s

Cami- Dollar Store 😛

Skirt- Thrift Store

Scarf- Dollar Tree

Earrings- Claries’

Sandals- Payless

Thanks for reading! I’m sorry it’s a shortish post.

My Vacation

I’m sorry I haven’t posted in over a week and I don’t even have a good excuse… anyway I just wanted to tell you guys a little more about my vacation and show you a couple things I got. Also I’ve gotten quite a few things from Thrift Stores so I might do a haul later.

The trip to where we were going took five days but only because we stopped at some friends first. When we were at are friends house their daughter took us kayaking and introduced us to two new TV shows, Doc and also MacGyver. I liked MacGyver a lot better and I hope we can buy it soon.

When we got there we stayed with some very good friends of ours and we had a blast! We went to this huge Mall with them and one of my best friends got me this-

I love it so much! ❤

They also introduced me to a new chocolate bar (Three Musketeers), it was soooo rich so I couldn’t eat the entire thing. 😛

They also me roped into a playing a videogame and it was actually pretty fun (don’t worry it was a pretty old one so there were NO bad graphics). We went Thrift Store shopping too and I was able to get some nice stuff (that I will show you when I do my haul post).  

On our way back home we stopped at a souvenir shop and I got this-

Then when we were going though Sudbury my dad said whoever spotted the Big Nickel first got a prize, I spotted it! 😀 So this is what he let me get at the Gift Shop-

Happy Canada Day!!!

Happy Canada Day y’all!

Eek! I’m so excited! I mean how awesome is it that it’s the 150th birthday of Canada and I will live to remember it?

Anyway today was amazing, we are at some other friends house right now and they (and us of course) celebrated by having a cookout. Their entire church was invited plus some of their friends, so I was able to make some new friends! Of course it started raining so we had to go inside but it was still fun. They played a game too (it lasted basically the duration of the party), everyone had a clothes-pin and you weren’t supposed to say the word “like”! It was so fun I lost my clothes-pin pretty soon but I had fun trying to trick others into saying it. 😛 

Here’s my sister’s post about Canada Day, it’s pretty awesome!

Okay so here’s what I wore. I wanted to wear something different but, like an idiot :P, I forgot it! 😦

Goodbye For Now

So I know I haven’t blogged in over a week and I’m super sorry, I’ve been crazy busy (my entire family has been). Unfortunately I’m not doing a post about an outfit; this is a post about why I won’t be posting for the next two weeks. 

My family and I are taking a two week vacation to western Canada and I’ll probably be too busy\in the car to be able to post. I might just get my sister to take a picture of my outfit a couple times a week and then just pop on here and post it for you guys. Plus I will definitely do a post about what I wore on Canada Day because I mean this is the 150th anniversary of Canada!    

So now that I’ve explained that I’d really like to know what kind of posts you guys want to see more of. Would you like it if I started telling y’all my thoughts on costumes from movies, or just normal outfits I wear, dressy outfits, cosplays? Please comment, I’d really like to hear what you want to see on this blog! 

Sorry again! I will try to keep posting though. 🙂 

Please comment what you want to see on here! 

Till next time! 

Elisabeth
