People Watching

I've been told about a thousand people walk through my cafe's doors every day, boys and girls.

And thus, I get to do a lot of people watching.  Which inevitably morphs into outfit watching.  And I don't know what it is, but stripes have been (re?)cropping up all over the place!

For the past ten days (ahem, excuse the hiatus please, ahem, ahem) I was in Montreal for a weekend visit (lovely!), and then house-and-dog-sitting for a friend's parents.  Their place is much closer to work and had netflix (I finally saw Community so everyone can calm down now) which was a bonus, but it did not have internet which was a serious minus.

And it did not have my whole wardrobe, which made this heart's longing for stripes ever fonder.  So this outfit here is the first thing I wanted to wear when I got home.  The shirt I bought in direct homage to Orchid Grey when I was in England (when I started reading style blogs, she was my first true love!), the scarf I made myself, and the hair is what you do when you've been sport side-swept bangs in a very hot workplace for too long!

Striped Shirt - H&M
Black Shirt (underneath) - Thrifted
Jeggings - H&M
Flats - Forever21
Scarf - Handmade
Rings - Adorit Boutique and H&M

So!  Tomorrow is my birthday boys and girls!  To celebrate (at least for today), I'mma try and land me a red striped shirt on my walk to work. . . . 

Never get paid, boys and girls.  It makes a monster out of you.

Happy people watching!
