Are we sick of me talking about the weather? I’ve been cooped up in lockdown for so long that I feel like that’s all there is to talk about at this point lol. Toronto is gradually reopening and whether it’s a good idea or not, I don’t even know. They’re talking about a third wave of the virus which means we might even go back into lockdown one more time until everyone is vaccinated, which sounds a little crazy to me. Should we really be reopening then? But then there’s economy stuff and like, what the heck do I know? I’m no expert.
Anyways, if you’re sick of me talking about the weather, I apologize. But either than reading, working, crocheting/knitting, and watching Netflix, I’m not really doing anything worth sharing these days. The only thing keeping me going is knowing that there are warmer days ahead. I’m dreaming of the summer days I spent at the park on a blanket, just soaking up all the sun, reading and relaxing. This outfit that I’m sharing with you is basically just a dress I got in the winter that I’m so excited to wear without tights! It’s this denim babydoll dress from Topshop Petite, and I can’t wait to live in it all season. There are so many ways to style it! It might get too hot in the summer but in the spring, the possibilities are endless!
The way I styled it here is with some cute socks and my loafers. My loafers from Zara were also a winter purchase so I’m super excited to get more wear out of them as well. The socks are from Free People. I’ve talked about this before but I just love our socks. The quality and the cute styles are everything I want in a sock. I definitely don’t need any more of them but I want them ALL.
This denim dress is one of those pieces that just needs accessories. There isn’t a top or bottom involved (which I kind of love), you just need a bag and shoes and you’re good to go! The bag I chose is this puffy pillow-like one that I got last year from one of my favourite boutiques in Toronto: Durumi (@thedurumi on Instagram). I’ve talked about them in many blog posts before but I haven’t been there at all during this pandemic. It makes me quite sad that I haven’t been able to go in and support them like I normally would. I’ve purchased face masks and a few jewelry pieces online, but I’ve had to stay away from their clothing. From what I can remember, I think they weren’t accepting returns. And with me being so small, it’s really a gamble if any of their pieces will fit me (unless I try them on first). It was just a whole messy situation so I’ve had to stay away from Durumi for a bit. It’s been rather heartbreaking but hopefully I’ll get to visit them soon.
Other little bits that I added to this outfit are my pearl necklace and this phone strap! My pearl necklace was talked about in one of my last posts. I ordered it from Amazon for like, $15. Honestly, such a great buy. I haven’t taken it off since I received it. The phone strap I made myself (you know I love a good DIY lol)! I saw these all over Instagram by this brand called “String Ting”. Forgive me if I’ve talked about this before because this is the second one that I’ve made. I decided to make a longer one so that it could be more like a crossbody strap. I have so many beads that aren’t being used so while I was watching a basketball game I thought, why not? And I actually love it! I get comments on how long it is and I guess it is a little long and obnoxious, but I’m obsessed. If you want to hop on this current trend, I totally recommend making one yourself! You just need string and beads, and it’s super easy and really fun to make.
