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 🙂

Green Slacks Ft. Pleather

Hi everyone!

This is another post from ages ago back in the fall. It’s about time I got around to it. I have soooo much stuff to post but hopefully I get caught up soon enough! I’ll try to mix up some new stuff and old stuff. Once again I’d like to thank my dear friend Talieson Jones (Instagram: @Instantclassik) for putting up with me during these shoots!  Information on the brands of the clothing can be found below. Enjoy! Muaaaah!

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

Dream While You’re Awake

These pictures are from a while ago (I know I’m slacking), but things have been a little bit hectic around here and I just found these pictures buried under more pictures… which will be coming soon!

I love these pictures, the flowers are so pretty 🙂 Enjoy!

Also came across this wild creature (my best friends cat)… so naturally I followed my animal whisperer instincts and started petting her.

OPA!

Hello everyone!

These photos are from a month or two ago (oops, totally forgot about them) when my parents and I decided to hit up a lovely Greek restaurant in Dartmouth Crossing, Nova Scotia called Ela! It was such a beautiful restaurant with plenty of options on the menu and various choices of Greek dishes and Greek-inspired food. I will definitely have to go back again soon! It was extremely good 🙂

Surprised when they picked me up in this beauty.... I definitely had convertible hair after this ride I can tell ya that!

For Lunch we started off with an Appy. We had roasted Halloumi cheese with spinach and fennel. I was extremely anxious and excited to try it because I have heard a lot of rave about Halloumi cheese and I can honestly say it DID NOT disappoint me… it was very good! For the main course I HAD to get pasta (fav). The pasta I got was a penne pasta with a cream-wine sauce, chicken, red bell peppers, and Parmesan cheese… one of the best pastas from a restaurant I’ve ever had! Keith got  the haddock, potatoes and veggies… the sauce on the haddock was really good and the potatoes were perfectly roasted with some spices. Mom was the bravest and got an actual Greek dish called Moussaka.. It’s like a lasagna… but Greek! (and she also had Greek salad on the side.) Instead of ground beef, it has lamb in it and a couple different ingredients. I really liked it, it was different. Dessert was a must… The second we all saw Vanilla Bean Cheesecake on the menu we were like YUP! Needless to say we all gained 10 pounds after this meal… oops!

A Day at the Camp

Hello friends!

About a month ago, the fam and I decided to go to the camp at Keith’s fathers place just to pay a visit and check out the water. It’s such a beautiful spot out near New Ross, Nova Scotia… kind of in the middle of nowhere… but that’s the best part about it! Knew it was going to rain a bit throughout the day so I decided to wear comfortable pants (not JEANS that stick to my legs when rained on… yuck!), and a crop tee 🙂

Although it was cloudy, and rained a bit later on, it was a lovely day to spend with family.
