Admittedly, when I go home to Toronto, I don’t pack that well. Inevitably, I’m always either over-packed or under-packed. I’m under-packed, because I usually don’t bring the correct layers–jackets, sweaters, etc. And sometimes I’m over-packed, because I always end up wearing the same thing anyway. Take this yellow J.Crew Tippi Sweater for example:
I wasn’t even going to bring it with me but at the last minute before leaving the apartment, I slipped it over my head because my dad likes to blast the A/C in the car and I needed something to keep me warm despite the blazing heat outdoors.
Even though I don’t *really* need to, I am thrilled to be able to wear this layer anyway. Toronto does get heat and humidity during the summer, but it is nowhere near what it is in DC. The fact that being able to wear this layer as an option makes me so happy.
The first two outfits aren’t dramatically different, but when you’re living out of a suitcase, you have to make do with what you have. I know the color of the photos are a bit washed out, but I made a new spot in the house to take some photos and the lighting is a bit weird and I didn’t put too much effort into trying to fix them via post-processing.
You might not be able to tell because of the flash, but the sweater is a bit sheer so you can see the stripes of the tank through it which I thought was fun.
