This is probably one of my favourite Spring outfits I’ve ever styled. It’s the perfect amount of layering for when it cools off in the evenings and is warm in the day. Looks I lean towards are basics paired with a pop, in this case the jacket and shoes. It’s nice to finally add some colour and texture to my outfits. The Winter just drags on and makes my personal style suffer because I can’t be bothered to change things up. I wish sometimes I was in a warmer climate like L.A. or something; I’m sure all of us Canadians do. This outfit pulls together some of my favourite pieces I own and trends. This bag for example is my obsession for the Summer and it was only $3.00 at Value Village. Some of my most treasured pieces are generally thrifted or vintage finds because they’re absolutely priceless. This Summer I can’t wait to wear more straw bags. I have a bunch I’ve thrifted that need to see the light! What are the trends that you can’t wait to wear this Summer?

Toronto is Tops!

Vintage T-Shirt via Vanguard Vintage, Vintage Lee Jeans Via Public Butter, New Balance Sneaks

Last weekend the boy and I took a trip to the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show. I love my man, he’s even a more detailed and slower shopper than me! Sometimes I find myself finished in a store well before him. He has such an attention for detail (it’s probably his OCD hah), bottom line is I scored a man who loves to shop and I’m not giving him up! This year I scored some pretty good finds. Last year him and I didn’t find much, but this year was a little better for me. I finally gave in and bought a vintage Coach bag that I’ve been eyeing forever, I also bought a little wooden eagle carve out for my new place in the new year and got this amazing top from Vanguard Vintage that says Toronto is Tops! Are we kidding! It’s so perfect. The cotton is so soft and worn but no holes (such a bonus) and the navy with white piping is what the best vintage tees are made of! I also got another top that is super hippie, femme from Vanguard with lace detailing and bell sleeves with a cropped at the waist finish, very Woodstock appropriate. We went to the show on the last day so I got these shirts at a pretty good deal, as well as knocked off a couple bucks on the other items that I purchased. Depends if you want to get there first and not miss out on anything, or go and score last minute deals. Don’t miss the next vintage clothing and antique show —>here’s the link to get your email reminder and discounted entry for next year: http://www.torontovintageclothingshow.ca/discount-coupon
