Yours truly turned 24 this past Monday! I decided to celebrate by going to an indoor botanical garden, Allan Gardens. It’s clearly still the dead of winter so this was a nice change of scenery. Definitely will return when I want to zen out again with some plants. Bonus: there were also turtles.

What do you do to escape the winter cold? Let me know in the comments 🙂

Kind of Blue

Still loving all-white looks this summer. It’s perfect for days where you can’t bother to think about co-ordinating your top and bottom because you can just throw on everything anything white.

Dreaming of Culottes

I am very late to the bandwagon but I’m living the dream in these black culottes. The important advantages of sporting these super wide-leg cropped pants:

1. Elastic waistband for all-you-can-eat buffets.

2. Crepe-like material that does not wrinkle for people that hate ironing.

3. Keeps you easy, breezy, beautiful. Perfect for summer.

Some other ones I have my eye on…

This is my “art student well-versed in post modern art history” look. I wore this look to see the Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibition at AGO and I felt so fresh and so clean clean. Very into baggy pants right now. It all began with the purchase of mom jeans but now I’ve moved on to these perfectly tailored peg leg trousers by Topshop. If you are also tired of skinny jeans/jeggings and boyfriend jeans are too casual/hobo for you, loose trousers can be your best friend.

I will probably move on to culottes next…if you have any recommendations, please comment below!

P.S. If I’m not blogging I’m on instagram or tumblr so feel free to creep me on there <_<

Scored this coat at 50% off the sale price at forever21.com last week. It’s not a very practical coat, which is probably why it’s not sold out yet, but it’s definitely a show-stopper. It was one of those “I didn’t know I wanted it but now that I see it I need it” kind of purchases. The AW x HM boots finally make an appearance on here. These boots were everything I wished for, all black, 100% leather, rubber sole, and zip detail. I wore this to see Birdman yesterday after watching the Golden Globes and hearing all the Oscar hype surrounding the film. The film is described as a dark comedy about an actor — famous for portraying a superhero — struggling with his now stagnant career. I really enjoyed it, there was a mix of drama, comedy, and action, and the characters were very relatable. I highly recommend seeing it while it’s still in theatres. I’ll leave you with this trailer.

Attempting to wear all of my dresses and skirts before the temperature drops to pants-only weather. Who am I kidding… girls in Canada still wear skirts in -20°C weather. #wearewinter. The Brandy Melville Bethan dress is a perfect LBD to wear during the daytime or nighttime or anytime. Sometimes LBD’s can look too formal for the daytime so I decided wear 200 layers over it. JK just tied a plaid shirt around my waist (the usual).

This white lace kimono is everything. The end.

cheap thrills

You know that feeling when you are just browsing a random store, and there’s an amazing deal that you just can’t pass up? Yeah, that happened to me at every store I went to. When I went back home a couple of weeks ago, my friend and I decided to go thrifting. After 20 minutes of rummaging through the wracks, I stumbled upon this 100% leather “made in Britain” cross body purse. It was everything I wanted and for a measly $4, I snatched it right up. 

One of my favourite new items is the crisp white crop top from Garage. I love the unique crossover cut of the top which can be paired with every high waisted bottom ever. It’s still on sale for $6 on the website so ch-ch-check it out.

And Forever 21 had a buy one get one on their sale items, so who can resist that?
