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!

Summer’s end

I’m having a hard time grasping the fact that summer is ending. Thankfully I have a trip to Mexico lined up to satisfy my need for heat and sun. But that will come and go quickly and it’ll be another year until every day is wonderful. That said I’ve been soaking up every minute by wearing sandals and shorts until I can’t. This is my go-to uniform when I need to get dressed quick and it’s warm out. A good vintage tee, light denim cut-offs and fun accessories. Sorry the photos are blurry, took them on my iPhone quickly the other day.

What’s your go-to summer look?

There’s no outfit I enjoy more than jeans and a tee and if that tee so happens to make a statement well then heck! I remember as a kid I used to sit around and think about what life would be like if we walked around naked and clothes were strange; didn’t we all? I wonder though if we weren’t so shy about our bodies and much more open about sex and nudity would we have the same awful things happen to women like sexual harassment either physical or verbal? There are many other cultures where women and men both wear practically nothing and are not sexualized the same. Instead of the body being this erotic piece of meat, they are looked at solely as a life giving source. These women make babies, feed them from their breast openly without hesitation and do all their daily work while the girls hang out. I used to work at Joe Fresh and we had a complaint from a woman that got kicked out of a change room because it was needed for someone to try on clothes, meanwhile she was trying to find a quiet spot to feed her child. I had never been so appalled that someone I worked with would do that to a woman in a vulnerable state. And on the other hand I’m sad how women have been ‘trained’ to hide the act of breastfeeding and either put a blanket over themselves or go to a washroom or change room in this instance. I’ve seen women whip it out with no coverage and men stare. MEN!

I’ve only worn this shirt once, and that was for this photo shoot/video I took for my Youtube channel. Isn’t that wild that I feel nervous to wear a shirt with boobs printed on it!? I’m just afraid of the stares and comments I’ll get.

I’m going to stop ranting now, I just had an opinion. Can you tell me if you ever thought about a world where we were naked and clothes were weird? Like somewhere in middle school, or was it just me?
