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.

Wondering what I’ve been up to when I’m not blogging, on Instagram, or on Tumblr? Read about what I’ve been up to as Couturesque‘s Social Media Director in their latest article. Thanks for all your support! ❤

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 <_<

Snow Leopard ft. Alexander Wang x HM

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.

uniform no. 5: teen angst

Teen angst… or young adult angst? I didn’t intend on looking so angry/worried/emo but I guess that’s what happens when you wear plaid, mesh, and leather. I’ve had this plaid chiffon dress for a couple of years but I didn’t wear it until I hacked off the bottom two ruffles because short people problems. Now it’s a cool midi length dress that can be worn with platform sneakers, heels, or flats. 

This weekend I attended Hot Docs, an annual international documentary film festival that takes place in Toronto. I enjoy the occasional documentary on Documentary Heaven or the Passionate Eye but I was blown away by the ones I saw at the festival this year. If you are interested, I saw The Overnighters, Return to Homs, Lady Valour, and Rich Hill. It was quite eye-opening to see people living in situations that were different from my own but I could still relate to the struggles and joys they felt on their journey (aka I shed many tears during all of them). For the summer, I have my eye on a new release at Bloor Hot Docs Cinema, Web Junkie, which is about the internet addiction as a clinical disorder in China.

Apologies on the blog neglect that’s been happening the past couple of weeks, I went back home for a while and I didn’t find an appropriate setting for my blog photos so I didn’t end up blogging. Hope you are all well   🙂 x

I decided to create a new segment called Uniforms to see how versatile my wardrobe can be. Each uniform outfit post will have an item that I wore in the previous post. I don’t think it’s a crime to wear the same item two days in a row… so that’s what we’re gunna do.

One  thing I love about Canadian weather is the constantly changing temperature…from 4 degrees in the morning to 18 degrees by the afternoon. This kind of weather calls for light layering. I decided to pair two of my most prized possessions, my talula sweater and wilfred leggings, to contrast the texture and tones of the different pieces. To be honest, the faux leather leggings aren’t the most comfortable but I highly recommend checking out this asymmetrical knit sweater at the next Aritzia sale.

Until next time,
