What to wear on the cobble stone streets of Edinburgh


H&M Jacket, Brixton Hat, BDG Jeans, Vintage Boots, …Bag

Edinburgh was quite small if you’re staying right in the centre like we did. Everything you need is walking distance and all the sites you want to see are also in close vicinity of each other. On that note, the streets are cobble stone so high skinny heels shouldn’t be the first shoes you pack. If you’re living in this city your shoes would probably get ruined pretty quickly but for us being there for 4 days I wore whatever I felt like. On this day I wore a small heeled boot and we walked around all day and I was definitely fine. I also live in a city so I’m used to wearing boots all day but after all the walking I was for sure tired! Obviously fashion is important to me but comfort always wins so a small heeled boot of which I don’t even refer to as a heel anymore are a fine option to bring if you’re a shortie like me. I think when you’re going to Scotland, one check the weather first and then two don’t pack a single shoe you wouldn’t want to walk ALL DAY in. Unless you’re a fancy traveller and drive everywhere but this really isn’t a driving city, it’s super small. This is truly one of the most beautiful cities I’ve been in so you’ll WANT to walk to see all the nooks and crannies ( and closes).

Sweater weather is here in Toronto


Joe Fresh Sweater, H&M Skirt, Yoka Flats, Vintage Coach Bag

The weather in Toronto has been odd this fall. From 5 degrees and rainy to all of a sudden warm and sunny and no jackets, but if one thing is certain, it’s that it’s sweater weather. Fall weather in Toronto is soooo unpredictable. You always have to wear a sweater or it’s certain that you’re carrying one in your bag for when the weather suddenly changes. It was getting pretty crazy hot near the end of the summer so I do love the change in the weather in the Fall, sadly I know it means it’s followed by Winter that seems to last forever. I’ll be soaking up the last few weeks of fall and the changing trees and fun layering. Stay tuned for more outfits!

Thrifty Threads

Value Village top, Levi’s shorts, H&M shoes, Value Village bag, Marc Jacobs sunglasses

This whole outfit is very “thrifty”. Either from value Village or on heavy sale, or found a discount store. I love a good deal! I like to invest in key pieces that will last me forever but when it comes to “trends” finding them at a deal is important. I’ve been really into this gingham trend lately and found this top at VV boutique and I was so surprised to find this piece there. It’s definitely an at home made piece, no tags or branding which made me want to buy it even more. I’m really into the floral detailing, it reminds me of something you would find on the Revolve website. Through blogging lately I’ve noticed how much of my wardrobe is either from VV or thrifted of which I love. I think all together this entire outfit cost less than $50! Win. 

Late start


Vintage T-Shirt, H&M shorts, converse shoes, H&M bag, Marc Jacobs Sunglasses 

Getting up and “throwing something on” can sometimes turn into an outfit I’m obsessed with. I love pairing things together that you normally wouldn’t. When I bought these lace “lingerie” inspired shorts my intentions were to wear them as you see in the pictures. A loose vintage tee and some worked in chucks or vans to offset the girly lace. 

On this particular day it was a pretty late start. Working in the service industry killed my sleep habits but it allows my bf and I to go have brunch and have the back patio all to ourselves to listen to the birds and just chill out. So I guess you win some you lose some.
