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!

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!

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.

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!
