Garnish my Green with Glittering Gold

Outfit: Top (Guess), Wool Skirt (Thrifted), Belt (Thrifted), Bag (H&M), Necklace Pendant 
(yen coins), Spiral Studs (Thrifted), Nail polish (Sally Hansen- Gilty Pleasure)

    So it's official. I want a horse. They are such a dignified and majestic animal, I've always been fond of them. The bf and I yesterday evening went to the RCMP Sunset Ceremonies (there was a pipe band, Scottish Highland dancers, and the main event: a horse musical show). The relationship between human and horse was so precious to witness, after making a jump the rider, with a proud smile upon their face, would give their horse a pleased pat on the neck. It reminds me of how humans and dogs are. We had such a good time! 
      I'm surprised I'm still rocking wool, I mean, it's almost July. It really just reaffirms my belief that I'm meant to live in a warmer climate haha. My AC is still stored away. This skirt was such a great thrift find, only set me back $3! It transitions into each season perfectly as well, much needed with such defined seasons. 
    And before I go I must mention my necklace pendant! I collect money from around the world (I have currency from 24 countries at the moment- not including Canadian coins haha). I know I'm a nerd, with a capital N. So, when a friend of mine travelled to Japan recently I was given several coins and a bill! All five-yen coins have holes in the middle of them, making it one of the only coins I can wear on a chain without obstructing the original condition. It doesn't take much to make me a happy girl.
Happy Friday!
