So as of Thursday this week, all of Ontario has gone into its third full lockdown. Can’t say I’m all that “jazzed” about it (see what I did there?), but I can’t lie and say that I don’t appreciate the time I’ll have for blogging, crocheting, reading, etc. It’s a little bittersweet. Yes, I was getting used to working full-time again. But I was also losing touch with all my hobbies and just the things I do that make me happy. It was getting really tough. How in the world did I manage to do it before?
What’s also been tough is watching the Toronto Raptors continue to lose games! It’s been a difficult season for them and they’re still my number one team (despite the t-shirt that I’m wearing in today’s outfit photos). Are any of you basketball fans? Do you have a favourite team? I think my top three are Raps, Blazers, and Jazz. I’ve been watching basketball for like 2 years now and I blame my boyfriend. It’s all he does so I’ve kind of been forced to know all things basketball. But this leads me to today’s post! I’m wearing this sick vintage t-shirt that I had originally found and purchased for my boyfriend, but he didn’t like the fit. It’s from a boutique on Queen Street West called, “Mama Loves You Vintage“. I was so stoked when I found it. Between you and me, I kind of wanted it for myself anyway so it all worked out.
For the rest of the outfit, I decided to get really Y2K with it. I wore these fabulous flared trousers/pants from TOPSHOP Petite. They’re in a zebra print, and I’m so glad that I snagged these when I did because I want to keep them for as long as they’ll fit me. Underneath the vintage basketball graphic t-shirt, I wore this long sleeved shirt from TOPSHOP. It’s just this white shirt with lettuce trim. I love it for layering. The shoes I chose were these platform boots that you guys know I’m obsessed with. Been in love with them since I got them and honestly, I can’t say enough good things about Vagabond Shoemakers. I’m looking into getting some sandals for the summer by them. They’re so comfy and they offer my size (size 5). They’re a reliable brand and I plan to stay loyal.
The accessories are also really early 2000s-inspired. I guess mainly the hat that I chose is? Bucket hats, baby. I can’t get enough! The collection is growing, growing, growing. I don’t think I can stop. This one you’ve probably seen before if you’ve been following my blog for a bit. It’s another Kangol. It’s orange. This was when I first started watching Emily In Paris and she wore that pink (or was it green?) Kangol bucket hat in one of the episodes. I was influenced, I admit it. I think this candy-coloured plastic/resin jewelry trend is kind of from the early 2000s too, no? But I obviously wore my BonBonWhims rings (again). Haven’t taken them off really. They’re like glued to my fingers and I’m not mad about it. Finally, the bag I chose is the same one that I wore in my last post. My bestie named “Pearl” (’cause she looks like a clam, but the style of this bag on their website is called “Saki”) from Nunoo. Got my eye on another Nunoo bag and have somehow managed to have some self restraint. How long will it last? Probably not long at all. The love is real.

I’ve got so much content to share with y’all. It’s been so backed up since I’ve been back at work. We’ve taken many outfit photos that I can’t wait to share on here. If you want a sneak peek, you can follow me on Instagram: @tinyintoronto!
I hope you’re all holding up okay with this new lockdown. I know it’s frustrating because it feels like this is never going to end. I’m trying to tell myself to appreciate this time to myself and make the most of it because this will *hopefully* be the last lockdown that we’ll have. When all is said and done, I’m pretty sure I’m going to be begging for time off.
Stay safe, friends!
