oh look a sale.

I always have a difficult time choosing what to wear in the morning. For the most part, it's still pretty chilly in the morning. Recently, afternoons have been hot. I have the hardest time deciding whether or not to wear long sleeves.
pointelle cardigan, Byer Too! Vintage romper: thrifted
I went with long sleeves with holes today. I can never stand to wear this cardigan on cold days. It does absolutely nothing for me unless I wear a long sleeve top underneath. I almost never wear this romper either. On cold days, it's too breezy. The material is thin. On hot days, I don't wear it because I have to wear it with something over it. The sleeves are a bit puffy, to give the strong shoulders look. I'm really petite, and that look doesn't work on me. I love rompers, but it's so troublesome to use the restroom. It would be nice if it were a dress.

About that sale. Book sale this weekend! My mom works at the library, so there are some perks. I go with her to choose out books and things before the general public do.

There aren't as many fiction books as I would like. I rarely find books I'm looking for. There are quite a few reference and informational books. I participate in the $3 brown bag sale sometimes. On the Sunday of the book sale, you purchase a large brown bag for $3 and fill it up with whatever you'd like. Last year, I bought two bags and went home with a new dictionary, two dictionary-sized law books, several classics, Shakespeare, American history timeline series, that kind of stuff.

I went early today, and didn't find any books that I wanted. Ended up getting an Airbud DVD for my little brother, a Spongebob GameCube game, Kingdom Hearts I, Pirates of the Caribbean I and II, and a Michael Jackson This Is It CD.

This is another picture taken on my phone. I was going through pictures on my phone, deleting ones I don't need anymore.
I've wanted a military green jacket for the longest time. Two years ago, I couldn't find them in any stores in the US. I found this one early this year at Aritzia, and wanted to buy it. It was on sale, from $100 to $90. Hah. Over my budget. So I waited for a bigger markdown, which never happened. And then they sold out.

There's also that one from Vince that I would love to have. But $400 is kind of really over my budget. I haven't been to the mall in a pretty long time, so maybe I'll get lucky and find one that I like in my price range.

Whenever I see find old pictures of me with long hair, I really start to miss it all. I love my short hair too, but. But. I don't even know what. I also miss having black hair sometimes. Especially because my hair looks orange under the sun sometimes. I'd like ash brown.

Mmnnn sleepy.

Love, Kai

Super cute outfit! As impractical as rompers are I still wear them on an almost daily basis (in the summer anyway).
