shimmering vampire

 I met up with a good friend for coffee today, which we enjoyed outside thanks to Ottawa's unseasonably warm start to spring. She looked at me and said "wow you're really pale, it's almost like you're shimmering in the sun like a Twilight vampire!  But it looks good!" Well I'll take it as a compliment (because I love shimmery things, just look at my tights from yesterday!) plus my man is really into supernatural tv characters! This will be the summer of Sea of Shoes complexion for me, no more tanorexic Emily!
I'm still participating in Super Stripes Week, just in a subtle-pinstripe-pants kind of way today! I saw this adorable animal print bag at a local luggage shop and thought it would be perfect for travelling or to use as a beach bag!
 Are you someone who tans easily or are you a shimmering vampire like me?

  1. I do not tan well...at all. So I avoid it. On an unrelated note, I adore all the accessories you paired with this!

  2. You are the prettiest shimmering vampire ever! The pinstripe pants and printed top go well. I love how your hair is blowing in one of the pictures. At least you are a vampire that enjoys the sun. I have a friend that won't leave the house if the sun is out and there is a hint of warmth!

  3. let's talk about your mermaid ocean outfit. so pretty, professional & artistic! the accessories: bracelets, necklace, ring, shoes, with that toe nail polish! now emily, look at my freckles. you know i can't tan. i've even tried fake tanning beds, but that was such a waste of my time & money. why? because it didn't work. i still looked like a pale dead person. ;)

  8. yeah, I tan easily but I have too little time to spend on tanning in the first place. luckily I have a balcony with dark floor and I have had days when I can see the tan after 15 minutes. gosh, how I miss summer and tanning, haha :P
    anyway, the tunic top you're wearing looks amazingly gorgeous! and all the jewellery is fabulous too.

  9. I do not tan easily - I burn! I just go with my pale skin all the time, so I guess I'm a shimmering vampire, lol.

    I love your top, it's so pretty. And that bag looks very fun!

  10. I'm 100% with you on the complexion! I used to use the tanning beds, but I'm so glad I quit. They're just terrible for your skin! If I get a tan at all this summer, it'll be simply because I'm spending a bit of time outside with the kids... sunscreen protected! =)

    Your top is beautiful!

  11. This top is the perfect top for spring. It's so cute on you! I like the jeans with it.

  12. hmmm..I like the colors of your outfit. The accessories are gorgeous, I like the black accents against your pretty tunic top. Well Emily, many asians in this part of the world spent hundreds of dollars on Whitening lotions just so that they can have white porcelain skin like like yours, so don't change a thing ;-) and oh...I like that necklace too...it's really beautiful

  13. I'm definitely a vampire. As is my husband. We'll end up being that couple with the overgrown lawn because we'll both fry to a crisp if we try to mow it!

  16. That necklace is so nifty...love all the little black "pebbles" held together with gold, it's intricate but still makes a statement.

  17. All of your jewelry is so lovely and fun to look at and the color and pattern on your shirt is beautiful! (I'm the same, I'm super pale and burn instead of tan, so I'm pale all year long!)

  18. Go vampires! So much cooler than werewolves (ha! was that a pun?).

    I tan very easily, but I never stay outside long enough to get a tan anymore. I'm too scared about getting skin cancer. :(

  19. I'm super pale too. I don't know if I shimmer, but I do know I practically glow with whiteness.

    I love that shade of blue on you! Love how you still incorporated stripes.

  21. I also look like a vampire. I like it though. Plus, we'll get some colour on our skin soon enough!

  22. You look so pretty. I don't tan so I try to be proud of my somewhat pale skin. I'm too much of a worrier about getting wrinkles later in life.

  23. I tan easy. Its warmed up here too in Mi

  24. Yes, I'm a shimmery pale vampire too. I used to hate it, and my friends (lovingly) tease me for being so ghost-like. But I'm learning to embrace it, and now that vampires are such a "thing" it only helps our cause, right? I love the pretty print of that blouse too, against your lovely skin!

  25. I love the jewelery!
    and I would have to say I am a "tanner"
    the worst experience I had...wearing a t shirt driving to toronto getting stuck in traffic and driving with my arm out the window (no A/C)
    I ended up with the worst tan all summer! I tried to "even out the one hand farmers tan but it never worked out lol.

  27. I am definitely a shimmering vampire all year long-- even after tanning in Italy, people still remarked on how pale I was! Haha but us ghostly chic girls are still the fabbest of them all :D
    Looking cute as always!

  30. Shimmering vampire is a nice way of putting it, I resemble more the "white as a codfish's belly" type of pale...or as a friend so kindly put it "Jeeze, Jenn, you better make sure the people around you have sunglasses when you're at the beach, you are so white that you may blind them!". A week after our trip to Florida I still am pale. Embrace it, Em, at least skin cancer won't be a worry!

One of my daily joys is reading the lovely comments you leave. It may take a day or two (or three, depending on how hectic life gets!) but I will stop by your slice of the blogosphere soon! xo Emily
