Summer Stripes


This is possibly my favourite dress that I own... and up until these photos were taken, I never wore it. Do any of you have something like that in your closet? Something so special that you don't dare wear it, for fear of ruining it? It's not that it's all that expensive (it's only from Topshop, after all) but maybe because it's Beyonce AND January Jones approved, or because stripes clothing and sleeved mini dresses are my favourite things, so combined it's a dream come true. Anyways, since these photos were taken, I've worn it to any and every event possible.
So, tell me: regardless of price or designer, what is the most special piece in your closet right now?

Gingham Smock Dress


Gingham Smock Dress

The air has definitely started to cool here in Toronto - as sad as it is to say, Autumn is definitely making its presence known. Regardless, I'm hanging on to my summer dresses as long as I can. After a small closet re-organization a few weeks ago, I came across a bunch of dresses I'd been "saving" to wear at some point this summer and, of course, now that summer is ending, I have to get as much wear out of all of them as possible, so prepare for an influx of dress-heavy posts for the next little while.
Aside from that, my life is currently filled with wedding-related activities as my best friend is getting married on Friday! I'm so excited. Hope you all have a lovely week!

A Little White and Red


A Little White and Red

Happy Long Weekend! While most of my fellow Torontonians are cottage-bound today, I'm putting that off until tomorrow in favour of seeing One Direction in concert tonight... would you believe me if I told you it wasn't my idea to go? I have a feeling I'll be one of the oldest people there, but that won't stop me from staring at Harry Styles' dreamy face anyhow. Expect my next post to include a 1D concert tee. Hope you all have a happy and safe Civic Holiday.

Riogordo


Riogordo

Phew! I'm home from Spain after what felt like the longest time away ever. It was an amazing trip - I saw my cousin get married at Lake Vinuela, spent time by the sea in Torre del Mar, did some shopping in Malaga and really got away from it all at my aunt's house in Riogordo. The Andalusian region of Spain is one I'd never been to before, and it was so interesting to visit all the various cities and experience an entirely new side of Spain (as you may remember, I spent a while in Barcelona a few years back and just loved it). This trip was much more relaxing, I don't think I wore much more than a day dress or a bathing suit most days, and didn't even look at my makeup bag or jewelry case for the majority of the trip!
Here are some photos from my aunt's porch, overlooking the olive groves in her backyard.

Let's Get Away


Let's Get Away

Preparing to leave for vacation next week got me looking through old vacation photos, and I came across this set from Mexico that I never posted. I've been having an extremely busy month, consisting of my beloved godparents visiting from out of town, taking a quick birthday jaunt to Chicago, working, more family visiting and trying to fit in seeing my significant other in between everything else. I need another vacation already, and this next one is coming just in time. I'll be heading to Spain, specifically the Malaga and the south of Spain, so if anyone has visited that area before and has any recommendations, please pass them on as I'll be there for two weeks!
