Colour explosion

Photobucket
Hey everyone! I'm finally finished midterms, so I celebrated by doing a little online shopping and meeting my best friend for a delicious lunch and walking around whyte ave. It was a seriously gorgeous day today, probably won't get more this warm!
So I tried on this dress back at the end of august because I really liked the print and the explosion of colour going on but I wasn't totally sold on it. It was $40 at that time and has some really weird pockets (they go all the way along the side from top to bottom) which were throwing me off at the time. But I left it at the store, and kept seeing it there until the price was right last week at $20! I'm actually really glad I bought it, it's really soft and stretchy material. A blazer and bright scarf finished the look off and was great to go from school to going out later.

PS. When I asked Bryce's opinion on this dress he said it "reminded him of an African lady, because of all the colour and print going on. But in a good way". What a gem haha!
