Booooo.. Summer is almost over! And we are winding things down into slightly cooler weather. There are going to be cooler days and chilly nights. And before you know it (as all the Halloween decorations are starting to show up!) it will be FALL.

I love fall. Fall for fashion, fall for crisp air. But NOT fall INSTEAD of summer. 

Fall also means my birthday is coming up – yay! Closer to being 30….

 

Happy Thursday lovelies!

Summer has been strange here in TO. Warm and chilly in the evenings, then hot and hot at night…but I sure do love those warm summer breezes…because goodness knows I get a chill when it’s 25+ with wind.

Everything has been good over here, busy and vacations and well just summer life. It is so short lived in Canada as we have a full 4 seasons to go through.

Hope you are enjoying your summer(s) or season wherever you are!

Man is this a polar vortex or what! Us Canadians sure know how to make it feel really darn cold. I mean I guess I shouldn’t complain, as Minnesota had about -60 degrees celsius temps. So -40 here isn’t that bad.  I am dying for some warm weather. To remember what sunshine feels like on my face and maybe what sweating feels like too.

This is too cold Canada. Too cold.

I mean the bf’s fingers were falling off just about now, the UGH you want WHAT… PICTURES. REALLY. NOW! What a sport. In the 5 or so minutes we take these in an underground parking lot. He complained.

What a guy…hehehe. 

Well with this weekend approaching I really hope that we get into the single digit numbers…even if it is the negative ones. I’ll take a good old -5 right now. Thanks.

Happy (warm) weekend lovelies!

The chase…and the score…

Shop this look: Top: Gap | Jeans: Mother Denim (really comfy jeans!) | Scarf: 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target | Shoes: House of Harlow (Marshalls score!) | Sunnies: Rayban Aviators (worn all Summer!) | Bracelets: Madewell & Stella and Dot | Rings: Nicola Chong Jewellery

Now with all the hype dying down from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target launch (which was like a piranha feeding frenzy), I really now get a chance to mix and match with some of the things I have bought. This scarf was a score! And as a nabbed it about 0.5 seconds before the other lady had a chance to grab it…I grabbed this one and the BOOM one. Turns out this one was the better choice and it matched perfectly with my House of Harlow shoes – which were a total Marshalls score!

Sometimes you just have good luck and it really does pay off – or at least make you pretty darn happy!

Happy Tuesday lovelies!

Shop this look! Top: Free People | Shorts: Zara | Shoes: Sam Edelman (old) | Bag: LV Neverfull | Sunnies: Rayban Aviators | Bracelets: Madewell, Hula Hoops Maui, a gift from sister from AZ | Rings:  Nicola Chong Jewellery, Club Monaco, GLAMROCKS Design

There is something about nice weather. It just makes you feel better. These pictures were from a time where it was still warm out…and weather in the 20’s was not like the weather we have now. Now it feels like Fall weather in the 20’s. I mean I guess I shouldn’t complain, because we are still getting warm sunshine.

But there is something to say when that sun drops, and we are left with a chill in the air. Toronto summers are so wonderful, and I can only wish that they were longer.

How is the weather where you all are at? Is summer really over yet?

Sometimes you find trendy things that are worth it. I could honestly shop at Target every single day….it is sad. I was there for the Phillip Lim for Target launch, at 7am with my sister. And then drove about 1 hour to buy the rest because we were oh about 30th in line and were not lucky.  Weprobablyaretotallynuts at least some people think we are!

Luckily for THIS Target bag I didn’t line up for this one…and it was probably only $15. Trendy tribal bag – check! 

But what to you is the difference from lining up for a fashion item or lining up for a new phone…or lining up for a video game. It is all the same.

I said I would not do this again…and I may only once…and I will take my sister again.

Thanks for reading lovelies! xoxo

P.S. If anyone wants some Phillip Lim bags, we are selling a few online, as I know some countries out there do not have Target – but at least you know I am a real person!

There is something about really neat graffiti in the city. It can really make things stand out or get lost. Luckily I was wearing a relatively neutral look last night, and I took perfect opportunity to give you guys a change of scenery for a bit! So we stood there in about 30 degree weather – the bf wearing a suit…and shot against this awesome art!

The bf is getting much better at getting my pictures just right (they usually turn out super blurry/he forgets that my hair looks “piecey” or like in the last shot my glasses are completely crooked!). He has told me he has a client who really loves photography so maybe that guy can teach him a few pointers.

I keep explaining to him that all the other famous bloggers/fashion bloggers their husbands and bf’s take all their pictures! The thing about the bf is that he really is a quick learner once we get the hang of things. He is unusually great at all sports, give him something and he will excel!

So we will get there…in due time!

Thanks for following, Happy Thursday!
