Ripped Jeans & Cropped Halters

Hello everyone!

Here’s another set of photos from a photoshoot I did with my good friend Talieson Jones. These were taken on  a beautiful day in Edmonton near an elementary school by Whyte Ave. With this outfit I was going for just a casual Spring look, maybe something to wear when walking downtown during the day or running some errands, yet with these strappy wedges it adds a hint of sophistication. If it were up to me I would literally choose to wear a good pair of heels or wedges with anything and everything (also because I’m very short, haha). Hope you guys will enjoy these. I have a ‘Favorites’ post coming up next! Stay tuned 🙂

Blues, Blacks, and Golds

Hi there!

I realize it’s been eons since I’ve posted everything. Unfortunately life’s been getting in the way, but since this semester is soooo close to being over I thought I’d start posting again. Over the past couple of months I’ve found it very hard to balance everything (there’s still many things I have to catch up on) and I’m a little mad at myself for not posting anything at all. I think that so often as people we’re so focused on pleasing others, working on deadlines, and focusing on the ‘important things’ that we forget to focus on ourselves and doing what makes us happy. One of the reasons I made this blog was to just step back from this complicated world and focus on myself and what I like to do. Above all I’m sorry to others who read this blog (or just look at the pictures), but I’m also sorry to myself for cutting out something important to me. Anyway, I would like to thank my dear friend Talieson Jones (you can check him out on instagram @instantclassik) for always putting up with my picky-ness when it comes to taking my photos! He’s the most creative, artsy guy I know, and he is extremely talented. Here are a couple of images of an outfit I wore a couple weeks ago (the weather was unbelievably beautiful). Enjoy!

Downtown #YEG in a Tunic

Hello everyone!

I realize it’s been a ridiculous amount of time since I posted last and I am regrettably sorry! The months of November and early December were so hectic in regards to school I have had little to no time at all to get on here and create a post. Thankfully I have had some time off in December to kind of get it together! (…kind of).

So here are a couple photos that my dear friend Talieson Jones helped me take. These photos are sooooooo long overdue and were taken in downtown Edmonton in the fall just before the city was blessed with the freezing cold. I’m wearing a black and white tunic with pleather sleeves and pocket detail from RW & Co’s fall collection, the Collabo mid-heel from Spring, a heavy colorful necklace and beige-chain clutch from Aldo, and red matte sunnies from a thrift store in Toronto. Enjoy!

A Walk in the Park

Hello everyone!

I just want to start off by saying I know it has been ages since I’ve posted anything and it’s because of moving provinces and getting settled in as well as starting a new semester filled with millions of papers and mid-terms  — university chaos. Anyways, I’m back! And I’m going to try to publish posts a little more frequently because a month is waaay too long for me. I’m going to be posting newer content and content from a while back that I haven’t had a chance to post. I’ve been getting several new ideas as to what else to post besides outfits and I’m really excited to share those new ideas with you guys! It’s just a matter of finding the time between exams,  papers and work to write and post them (but don’t worry, I’ll definitely find the time).

As for this post, this is a newer one, the pictures were taken just the other day by my dear friend Nicole (thanks girl), of a casual walk in the park on a Fall day. I did notice the significant change of color between the pictures but that’s just because the lighting changed frequently, especially when we moved from one area to the next (sorry about that!) This day was actually significantly cold and I did bring a jacket, however, it didn’t really look right with my outfit, so I took it off and decided to take the pictures without it. This is an outfit I’m actually in love with; I think Fall is the perfect season and has the perfect weather to wear warm skirts and tights and to take advantage of all the scarves in my closet – oh and also wear dark lipstick. Enjoyyyyy, muaaaaah

Zebras and Trench Coats

Hello! These pictures were a bit last minute, my brother decided he wanted to work on his photography skills… so he’s to thank for these ones. It was a cloudy day but it was warm, so I wore the shorts due to the heat and the jacket in case of the rain. I am in love with these zebra patterned high-waisted shorts… they’re so fun and can literally be worn with anything. On this day I just chose to pair them with an average grey crop top, just to keep it simple. I thought the jacket was a nice ad-on because it really changed the outfit.

Enjoy!

Flowers In Her Hair

Hello friends!

This Summer my favorite trends are by far 60’s inspired sunglasses, floral hair accessories and anything with fringe! On this beautiful day, I have put together all of my favorite trends in one outfit, also sporting a crop and high-waisted shorts (another Summer favorite). Hope you’ll enjoy this look as much as I did!

Mixing and Matching

This post was actually made a couple weeks ago.. and I forgot to publish it.. oops! This was just a casual day doing casual things. Thought it would be fun to mix up some patterns and put them together somehow. I think that plaid can pretty much go with anything, and although I found it pretty risky pairing it with these stripy pants… I think it worked out alright!
