And We'll Never Be Royals

What's this... a blog post?

Yeah, kind of forgot this place existed. Been caught up with school, volunteering, starting my summer job, writing for The Style Spy, socializing and eating good food. But let's not be silly, there's always room for blogging between all that, yeah?

Outfit back story: Wore this out a while ago to go shopping with my Mom. I love how eye-catching this necklace is, and I'd been so caught up in wearing gold as of late that I forgot the great crisp, futuristic feel that only silver accessories are capable of.

Thrifted army jacket, Topshop peplum top, Forever 21 necklace, Urban Planet jeans, Fjallraven Kanken backpack, Frye Billy boots

Anyways, look out for more outfit posts in the coming days. Also, there may or may not be pictures posted from two months ago when there was still snow on the ground. No judgement y'all.

Also, boobs... 'cause I'm random like that.

To be honest this picture is probably the most accurate representation of what I'm like in real life posted on this blog thus far. Not sure if that's a good or bad thing.

Lastly, good music is good for your soul.

I’ll Wait, So Show Me Why You’re Strong

Community "Paradigm" Parka (from Aritzia) // Fjallraven "Kanken" backpack // EBay Foxtail // H&M Tee // Hiyamoon Crystal Bullet Necklace (on Etsy) // Urban Planet Jeans // Frye "Billy" Boots // Commes Des Fuckdown Beanie

First order of business: HI Y'ALL THIS IS MY NEW BACKPACK AND I LOVE IT. Seriously though, I have a thing for backpacks. I have far too many already and I still want more (a leather backpack in particular.) How will I justify my obsessive backpack purchasing when I'm no longer in school?

Secondly, these boots: Got them over the Christmas break, on EBay for 100 dollars -- they usually RRP for $270! My second Frye boot purchase, and it cemented that it will not be the last.

Thirdly, this song has been on repeat for the past 4-5 days and it's one of the best things I've heard in months. Watch the video below for maximum effect:

And last but not least, me #failing at doing Cara-face for good measure:

Happy weekend my friends!

This will be a short post - I just wanted to share this awesome Holt Renfrew x Pendleton throw I won in MTV FORA's Holiday giveaway. It's thick, luxurious and has a pretty great colour scheme (because let's be real, Toronto biddies love that Holt Magenta.)

True, I'm probably not going to go on outdoor winter excursions with nothing but a wool throw to keep me warm, but I couldn't resist the opportunity to take pictures of my hideous, makeup-less self frolicking in the snow that Nemo left for us. Indulge me.

So This Is Love?

Came across a picture of these flawless Celine wedges last night and I AM IN LOVE. I don't even know how much they retail for, but I don't want to know. I might consider some rather insane money-making schemes if I had a savings goal in mind.

Cinderella girl, I never got it before. BUT NOW I DO.

New Specs, I Need Some.

Ever since I found out about Warby Parker from one of my favourite bloggers The Queen of Hearts, I've been head of heels for their specs. This week I found out through my Style Spy editor Erica that they now deliver to Canada, and roughly 30 seconds later I checked Alicia Fashionista's blog to see her rocking a pair of Warby Parkers.

They should seriously give her some type of commission for selling me these glasses.

So as much as I love my Prada specs, it's time for a change. (Partly because my Pradas are too big and often fall off my face if I turn my head more than 45 degrees towards the floor.)  I was going to post pictures of me with these glasses in "virtual try on" mode, but let's be real - pretty much every word published on this blog by me is embarrassment enough.

I'm down to two pairs that I think I might get - which ones are you guys feeling more? (Let me know in the comments if you're feeling brave!)

Warby Parker "Linwood" (Same as Alicia Fashionista is wearing above!)

If I end up getting either, y'all will be the first to know.
