Ghosts- Laura Marling
I know, I've been desperately absent the past little while! But I do have a valid reason...of sorts. In a month I'm packing up my life and moving out the the West Coast!! I've been wanting to move for a while now and I figured it was time to put my money where my mouth is. It will be sad to leave Manitoba, it really is such a lovely place... despite what many say, but it's time to have a bit of a change in scenery. 

With all the things I have to complete before moving (rent out my lovely little house, find a job, oh and finish my portfolio for art school.... yikes!) Fifth Sparrow has taken a bit of a back seat- which hurts my heart! So, please, bear with me being a bad blogger for the next few weeks, I will be back in full swing soon enough! 

Floral A-Line Skirt and Black Velvet Shirt- Le Chateau, Patterned Tights- Joe Fresh, Black Shoes- Aldo
These photos are actually from before Christmas, hence the festive decorations! I've had both the skirt and the shirt for years and decided that I liked their textures together, the velvet with the satin, even if they have different feels to them... I've never been one for matchy-matchy anyways!
