These photos have such warm tones, however the weather was was not warm in the slightest (typical Saskatchewan). I really love this outfit, one of my favourite things about this outfit is how the items are all composed from natural materials (except the tights, which I have been gently washing and reusing for over 4 years now). It is one thing to shop secondhand, but it is only sustainable if the clothing you are thrifting is high-quality and composed of natural materials. This is because man-made materials create plastic microfibres when washed – which is one of the most devastating pollutants in our waterways today. It is time to take responsibility for our actions and to start making our purchases more sustainable.

I cannot believe that it is September already and that I start university again in 2 days. I am looking forward to fall & I hope that we are able to get some fall weather this year in Saskatchewan instead of going straight into winter again.

The Chain

eljewelryRFB1
I wish I was able to find these shorts in every colour! I found them at a vintage shop in Hamilton, Ontario when I visited for a Global Water Futures conference. I am able to squeeze my waist into the very last notch in the belt, but look how small it goes – I am convinced these shorts were made for a 10 year old child! I decided to pair some gold jewelry with this outfit from Elizabeth.Lyn Jewelry & keep it simple to modernize the look! The delicate chain and earrings add to this outfit beautifully.

The Pack is Back

march312018RFB4
The fanny pack is back! When I brought this fanny pack home from one of my thrifting outings & showed it to my parents, I thought it was quite funny when my dad said “Hey, that is exactly like the one I used to have!”

I wish I would have had a stylish fanny pack for when I went to Norway, it would have made things so much easier! Today I am sporting a microfibre-free outfit by wearing all natural materials! I thrifted these white pants, originally they were huge flare bellbottom jeans and to make them more modern I cut and sewed them to look like jeans that are more in style today – it was ridiculously easy!

Cry to Heaven

batoutofhell3RFB1
It was the first time I had driven after my surgery for endometriosis, and the first time I had gone out alone after the surgery as well. I decided to pop into Better Off Duds for a peek. I was looking through the band t-shirts, I had reached the large section and something told me to flip one more hanger and THERE IT WAS… a vintage Meat Loaf concert t-shirt. In the 7+ years that I have been actively thrifting I have always wanted to find a vintage Meat Loaf shirt. I could not believe I had finally found one. God bless vintage sizes as well because this shirt was marked as a large, but fits like a small. I think Meat Loaf albums are truly creative masterpieces (artistically and musically) and I don’t think I’ll ever stop being excited about this incredible find. Also, check out this vintage suede skirt I found as well… a match made in heaven.

Here is my 2017 Halloween costume – a dead bride. I could not resist, I love dressing up. My entire outfit is thrifted vintage items, or made from up-cycled materials that I had sitting around the house. I love this wedding dress so much that I might actually get married in it!

Lust For Life

seventies3RFB
I am continually searching for a lust for life – things that inspire me and motivate me to continue on with my journey. I am constantly wondering which path to wander down and which road to follow…. life is confusing at best, however learning what makes me excited to be alive is where I have tried to put the majority of my energy and flourish in. Bringing vintage items alive again and purchasing items secondhand is one way I am able to satisfy the desire to be a more sustainable blogger. Here’s to you in finding your lust for life.
