Kensington Market

Hi! I’m still here!! I’m working¬†full-time¬†now so I’ve been a little drained lately. So drained that I’ve been too lazy to really keep up with my blog. By now, you guys should know that I’ll never really disappear for good. Blogging is something I love doing, and I don’t think I’ll ever quit it. Don’t worry! ;D

Today’s post is of a trip downtown Toronto to Kensington Market. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s an older neighbourhood that is very fun and diverse.¬†It’s different and¬†filled with¬†creativity! The neighbourhood is¬†full with houses that have been turned into shops/restaurants.¬†There’s a lot of vintage clothing stores, cute coffee shops, fresh produce, and restaurants like¬†a Big Fat Burrito that we went to for dinner that was pretty good! I went with some co-workers, Will (who you’ve seen in my previous post!) and Deniz (https://www.instagram.com/letsdenizme/). If you are ever visiting Toronto, I definitely recommend visiting Kensington Market.

White&Denim

Why hello there! I’m excited to say that I’m back with something different for you guys! I teamed up with a few friends, found a colorful location downtown Toronto, and we took some fun pictures that I’d love to share. This specific location had the cutest crates in a few different colours. They ended up being the perfect backdrop. We also agreed on wearing denim and white. You all know how much I love that combination ;D The photographers behind these lovely photos are Mark Gomez and Jasmine Cabanilla. Also joining us was my fellow Topshop/Topman associate, Will Prowse. I’ll link their Instagram accounts down below! Definitely check them out!

Now take a look at these pictureessss!

Wrapped Up In White

I’ve always loved white. I mean, I don’t think you can ever go wrong with choosing white. Well I guess you could.. One wee mistake and you could ruin your shirt or whatever/make it look filthy. It doesn’t take much to make it look filthy, does it?¬†I guess wearing white is only great while it lasts lol.

For today’s blog post¬†I’m choosing to talk¬†about my newly found love for all things white. By all things white, I literally mean ALL things. I’m really digging all white outfits. I’m also digging white d√©cor (ya’ll know I’m moving in a few weeks ;D). Everything just looks so crisp, clean, and sophisticated in white. White also looks fantastic with a tan, that’s a bonus! I don’t know how you guys feel, but I really believe that white’s the way to go these days. My last few purchases have been white items (not that I’m spending money on clothes instead of saving for my apartment or anything ba-ha). Between you and me, I’ve got white jeans and two white tops so far. It’s been like a streak of just white. I’m going to see how long ’til I break it. Imagine if I only bought white clothes from now on.. HA!

I’ve compiled a few photos that are strictly white to show you guys how lovely white can be. I know a few of you may not find it practical, but look¬†at how pretty these photos are!!

Hope you enjoy!

 

So what do you guys think of this white trend? Let me know in the comment box below!!

Yours truly,

Beloved Bardot

Hey friends! I’m back with a new outfit post. This was taken kind of “out of the blue” on Mother’s Day. I went home for the weekend, liked my outfit, so I grabbed my boyfriend and gave him my camera ha-ha. There weren’t a lot of choices for backdrop, so against my sister’s apartment building was, I guess,¬†fine. This outfit features this white Bardot/off-the-shoulder top from Topshop (this probably isn’t a shock anymore). I’m not quite sure what the proper term is for this shirt, but I’m sure you guys have seen them as much as I have. I¬†love this top! I can see myself getting a lot of use out of it in the summer. It’s just so feminine and easy to wear. I see myself pairing it with denim shorts, jeans, skirts, and trousers like¬†what I’m wearing¬†in the pictures below.

I also want to take the time to acknowledge how I’m wearing my white high-top Converse sneakers. They need a shout-out/some real loving. I’ve been gravitating towards them¬†SO MUCH lately!¬†– and I’ve had them for like 5-6 years!¬†This is a real example of how classic these sneakers are and how they’ll probably never go out of style. I probably sound like I’m sponsored or something, but I’m just a huge supporter of Converse sneakers. Like, they look even better when they’re older!¬†Ya’ll need a pair! Go get ’em! LOL

Anyways, I don’t know about you guys, but a new blog post really gets me in a good mood. I’m happy I took the time this morning to make this post.¬†I hope you guys have a happy Friday! Enjoy your weekend!

Until next time!

April Inspiration ’16

HIIIIIII!! I’m here. I’m still alive. I feel like even though school has ended, my life still hasn’t really relaxed. I still haven’t settled completely, and it sucks.¬†I’m trying to work as much as possible. I’m kind of considering a second job. My lease is up at the end of this month and I’m searching like crazy for a new apartment. I really really really want to blog and vlog, but life is pretty hectic for me right now (to say the least).

On a positive note: I’M GRADUATING! Finally going to obtain that Bachelor of Commerce Degree I’ve waited¬†4 years for and I couldn’t be more relieved. Believe it or not but I’m actually going to be graduating on my birthday this year. That should be fun! =D

For today’s post, I’m sorry, but it’s just your typical monthly inspiration post. Nothing fancy.¬†It’s a little late but still worth a share. This month I’ve been loving the usual stuff, just mixing it up a bit differently. I love bright colours, white, denim, drapey pieces, trousers, bombers,¬†lace-up tops, etc. You can tell by the beautiful mosaic I’ve provided below.

 

How are your lives? Hopefully going smoother than mine at the moment. Being a big kid sucks, am I right? It’s overwhelming.

Nonetheless, I hope you guys have a fabulous weekend! Have a happy Mother’s day! I’m¬†not working this weekend!¬†I’ll be in my home town celebrating with my family and boyfriend ‚̧

Until next time!

January ’16 Inspiration

Hey friends! I’m back with a monthly inspiration post! I hope you don’t mind but I enjoyed monthly inspiration posts last year, so I think I’m just going to keep them going. If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ll notice that during the month of January¬†my inspiration has not changed much. During the colder months, I definitely prefer layering (in the most fashionable way possible). This month I’ve also noticed that I was gravitating more towards my trousers/dress pants. I have this favourite pair of navy pinstripe trousers and I’m pretty sure I wore them the most. As you can see in the pictures, I’ve preferred looser clothing – the “oversized” look. I think this look makes it easier to layer stuff underneath so that I’m warmer. I usually layer with turtlenecks (ya’ll know¬†how much I LOVE¬†turtlenecks!!).¬†Another trend I’ve been keeping up with this month is the “white sneaker” trend. Definitely been pairing them with the trousers and my high-waisted mom jeans throughout the month. Although all these pieces that I’ve been loving are more on the masculine side, I’ve been making sure to wear more feminine accessories. A good pair of earrings usually does the trick!

 

That’s all I have for this month’s inspiration! I hope this post made your Monday a little bit better, and hopefully I’ll have another post for you all sometime soon xx

Until then,

Summer Suede

Hi friends! I‚Äôm baaack with another outfit post! This outfit consists of two things I‚Äôve been currently loving, camel suede and that darn button up skirt! Are you sick of seeing it yet? I promise that I‚Äôm keeping it at two ha-ha! This one in particular is white, and also from Topshop. I picked white because I don’t have any bottoms in my closet that are white. I was considering getting pants but this skirt just seemed like the perfect choice. My top is from Zara and it’s real suede leather. It’s¬†got that weird leather smell but I love the look¬†and the texture that it brings to my outfit.¬†What do you think? Take a look!!
