A Bug's Life | One Year Later

Monday, April 18, 2016

Summer 2015 was HOT, to say the least, and I'll be honest with you, my decision to wear monochrome shades was most certainly not the best decision on that particularly warm day last year.
Yes, last year. I've been inactive for quite some time now. Let me digress: I've been busy. (Turns out that someone's study habits need to improve!)
 But alas, that day last year marked the return of the shalwar. Perhaps you remember my first ever fashion-related post on this blog (THE HORRORS OF THE PAST OH MY GOD) where I talked about East-meets-West blah blah, yeah? Well, I went with a similar look this time, although this one was most certainly not a semi-formal look.  
In case you're wondering about the title of this post, it's supposed to be a reference to how these sunglasses make me look like a dragonfly (which is a bug, and there's a movie...about bugs....called A Bug's Life...yeah you get it) and I love them, to be honest (lmao).

Although a little unclear in the picture above, I'm wearing a "Free Palestine/Save Gaza" bracelet I purchased at a protest in my city. However, if you would like to support the cause, you can buy similar types of Free Palestine merchandise from the Palestine Solidarity Campaign here (proceeds go towards supporting the cause). While you're on their website, I would also suggest checking out the boycott page. Even something as little as refraining from supporting a certain company goes a long way! One of my favourite fashion bloggers' (Hoda Katebi) boycott page is also a useful resource if you're just trying to learn more about certain brands and reasons to boycott. 
I would say I miss summer, but today it actually hit the high 20's and is said to be nice for the rest of the week. Yay for running season!
This cardigan is actually a DIY, would you believe? It's the material of a sheer dupatta, cut and stitched in such a way that it is wearable. I love to recycle, you see. Go green and all that.

I would suggest that this summer, we all try something new. I hope to get a head-start on my courses for next year (nerd alert) and try volunteering in various places. Don't forget to go outside this summer and get a breath of fresh air. Also, if you're going outside, remember to use sunscreen with SPF 30 or above and don't forget to reapply (mom alert). Make sure you drink lots of water, get lots of sleep, and meet up with a bunch of your friends and family. Have a great rest-of-the-year!
