#OOTW: September 2015

Monday, October 5, 2015
Finally back to school! I definitely started one of the latest weeks compared to everyone I know. It's almost a new month and I only started school September 14. I originally wanted to show you my first week of school outfits but it ended up being really hectic (getting forms and running around campus to finish errands) so I thought I'd show you the third week. University is a really different atmosphere. It's not until a few weeks into school that you're "settled in". You still have the opportunity to change your schedule around so I've had semesters where I was on a completely different schedule than what I originally signed up for. Now that I finished the third week of school, I'm finally settled in my official schedule I had planned. With a lot of things going on with school, my outfit can change from really put together to casual and comfy depending on the kind of day I have. Without further or due, here's my week of outfits!

Enjoy,

Sunday:

  • RIPLEYS! I was so stoked when I saw that Ripley's Aquarium was offering a half off admission promotion for students the past weekend. I went a couple of years ago soon after it opened and it was amazing but since it did first open, it was insanely crowded so it was nice to have it a bit more empty. The last time I went, it was also really cold so it was annoying to have to deal with how crowded it was and on top of that, have a bunch of layers on; it definitely ruined how interactive the aquarium was because you were allowed to touch animals like stingrays. Having to constantly take on and off your jacket was a hassle so it was nice not to deal with that.

  • Monday:

  • I've been under the weather the past week so today was all about keeping it casual with a long sleeve striped shirt with some standard dark wash jeggings. I threw on my sleeveless blazer to make the look more put together and to make it seem like I tried harder than I actually did.

  • Tuesday:

  • Today was the second week of my position as a part-time intern/volunteer for the Royal Ontario Museum. There's an option in my art history program where you can take an internship course instead of a normal lectured kind of class. The week prior, I dressed business casual so I could get a sense of what the workwear was like. Considering this is a part-time position and I also have class afterwards, I wanted to make sure the way I dress was appropriate for the internship and class. I already wore this sweater a few days ago (as you can see on my Instagram feed) but I love it so much, I couldn't resist wearing it again. I fell in love with everything about it when I first saw it and eventually purchased it a couple of weeks later (when I had a coupon). The mustard colour is perfect for fall and definitely reminds me of some of the outfits in Tory Burch's collection during NYFW SS16. It was a very cloudy and rainy day on Tuesday so instead of wearing the exact same outfit I wore last time, I decided to wear the sweater with dark jeggings and Timberland boots. I decided to dress a bit more casual instead of business formal/casual because of the long day I had ahead. On top of class and the internship, I had to stop by Yorkville to pick something up. My day was pretty much packed with a lot of walking in the rain! Since I was running around the city quite a bit, I didn't have time to take a full OOTD photo so I decided to show a picture from when I wore the sweater previously.

  • Wednesday:

  • Interning part-time, working part-time and full time school is definitely crazy so even though this was the third week of school, it's a miracle when I put together a great outfit. This day I had a meeting at my part-time internship, then I had a couple of classes for the rest of the day. I've been meaning to start wearing my over the knee boots so I thought it'd look perfect with this outfit. I recently received this embellished detachable collar from ASOS that I've been really excited for. I could never find an embellished one like this in stores so when I stumbled on this on ASOS, I knew I had to buy it eventually. Since I did have class and it was another gloomy day in Toronto, I wore the embellished collar on top of a magenta peplum blouse I got a while ago at Forever21. Due to certain circumstances, I was unable to get a photo of my outfit (and also couldn't take it again with something I was genuinely happy with) so I made this with the exact pieces of my outfit.

  • Thursday:

  • Today was a very long half day. I had work in the morning (and had to deal with unforeseen circumstances), had class and then ran an errand. After that was all over, I commuted home which ended up taking an extra half an hour that totally tired me out. Since it was 5 degrees in the morning this day, I ended up going very simple with my outfit and wearing a turtleneck sweater, jeans and over the knee boots. The rest of my day went to studying for a quiz I had the next day.

  • Friday:

  • TGIF! Finally made it through the week. This week felt like the longest week of school I've had. Today, I only had one class (but had a quiz as well) and work. After that, I walked around Yorkville to check out the new store "cos". I pretty much roamed around the city until the Behind the Nuit event that was in the evening. The dress code for the event was casual and since I don't really own any casual pieces, I ended up borrowing a top from my sister and wore it with the same ol' kind of Hollister jeans and over the knee boots I wore for most of the week! It was so cool being part of the Inside Out project (by artist, JR). Although, it was very intimidating knowing that I only get one photo and only 6 seconds to figure it out. I defaulted to smiling but it turned out good so I'm happy! I also was allowed to paste it onto the ground at Nathan Phillips Square so my face was there for people see during Nuit Blanche.

  • Saturday:

  • This day I really didn't do much. Besides get lunch, I mainly stayed at home so I stayed in a campus sweatshirt which isn't interesting enough to post a photo of! I had so much work to do, it was more of a stay at home day.
