After what felt like the longest school year ever, classes are finally done! This means that I can freely spend my weekdays galavanting and enjoying everything that Toronto has to offer. This also means that I can stop dressing like I only own one hoodie and one pair of pants. Continue reading “Fun pants for a guaranteed fun day”
The past few days have felt just like spring in Toronto, and I just had to take advantage of the sunshine. I busted out some of my favourite spring frocks that have been hiding in the back of my closet all winter, and let me tell ya, I’ve never worn such few layers in February. I actually cannot believe how mild and sunny it is! The weather got me all excited about getting dressed up. So what does one wear when it’s 15 degrees and sunny in February?

The weather in Toronto has been beautiful lately. It’s still a bit nippy out, but spring is certainly in the air! To celebrate the beautiful weather, I packed up my parka, and busted out my leather jacket. Words cannot express how excited I am to be able to wear clothes without hiding it under a massive coat. I took advantage of the warmer weather and sunshine, and roamed around Toronto. I was feeling edgy (probably because I was listening to Arctic Monkeys this morning), so I went with an all black outfit with a pop of red. Here is my weekend look along with outfit details.
My favourite winter outfit is definitely overalls and a turtleneck. It’s warm, versatile, and convenient. Overalls are always my go to because of the giant front pocket most of them have. It’s very handy for storing things such as your phone, glasses, or snacks. It reminds me of a kangaroo pouch, except without the baby kangaroos. It’s such an easy outfit to put together, but it always looks so effortlessly cool.
I’ve been seeing a lot of ruffles on clothing lately, and I absolutely love how fun and feminine they look. Ruffles are a great way to add depth and character to something that would be rather bland otherwise. I found this sweater at H&M and instantly fell in love with the ruffles on the sleeves. They’re just so playful, and they add so much interest to the outfit! I styled the sweater (H&M) with dark wash jeans (BDG from Urban Outfitters), a fun tassel necklace (thrifted), and Chelsea boots (Dr. Martens). It’s a fun casual look that could be worn any day!
We are nearing the end of August, and unfortunately that means the end of summer as well. August has been a scorcher in Toronto, which made it difficult for me to get dressed. Is it acceptable for me to wear a bikini in public everyday? No, but I really wanted to. The weather has slightly cooled down now (finally!), which has motivated me to dress better. I’ve really been loving the look of t-shirt dresses. It is so easy to dress them up or dress them down, and they are so light and airy. I’ve also been slowly re-introducing denim into my wardrobe in preparation for fall. I could not fathom wearing denim when it was so insanely hot, so I’ve opted for lighter denim pieces such as mini skirts and rompers. Here is a video lookbook of all my favourite styles for this August. Enjoy! xx
