des que j'te vois

Wanted to put up a quick post as I'm on my way out the door to go sign a lease for my brand new apartment! I found it this past weekend, in one of my favourite areas in Toronto! I'm so excited to move in, and though I know the stress of moving/uni starting back up is going to be killer, right now I'm just trying to enjoy the thought, I feel like such a grown up.

Say hello to my new Topshop shoes! Like every other blogger out there, I'm seriously kicking myself for not buying the Chloe Susan boots when I had the chance, but these are a wonderful substitute. I'm wearing an H&M studded vest and a torn Roxy dress.
With the recent heatwave we're having, I'm finding that all I'm wearing is oversized tshirts as dresses, which explains my lack of posting - it's hard to create fab outfits in this sweltering heat!
Have a lovely week all xo

  21. How did you get those shoes? Topshop refuses delivery to Canada :(

    Enjoy your new place! But don't become a grown-up too soon - believe me, it's no fun!

    ReplyDelete
  22. You look stunning in that 2nd picture. Don't get me wrong, you always look gorgeous, but there's just something about the way you're looking at the camera in that pic. It's kinda mysterious. Gorgeous shoes too! I love the susans as well, but it's sad that I can't afford 'em. Great look though.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Those boots look great on you. You don't need to always compile fabulous outfits, cause you look good in whatever you wear! Congratulations on your new apartment it's a very exciting step in life you'll take. xx

    ReplyDelete
  24. Gorgeous gorgeous boots - i'm a big fan of studs and they're even bigger this fall than last so those are a perfect buy. Love your rocker denim vest too.

    congrats on your new apartment and starting Uni - that's such a fun time in life so enjoy it all.

  26. ahhh yes, the heat is horrible. i love Toronto, but this heat is unbearable. you're starting at U of T, right/ 3rd year? I'm 1st year but at the same school. I'm soooo excited.

    Ps. What college are you in? I'm at Vic.

    I love this outfit although it's simple. The vest is amazing as are the shoes.

  30. the topshop boots are fab!

    ha, totally can relate on the challenge of being creative outfit-wise in the sweltering heat. it's hard to pull off something epic with a . . . tank top and beads of sweat! however, you look amazing here :o)

    That vest + those boots = I want, I want! Damn Australia for not having Topshop or H&m. haha. Love how you've balanced out the 'toughness' of the studs with a floaty white dress. Perfect!

  56. I believe congratulations are in order. I've only just settled (semi-permanently) in NYC and have, as well, been feeling oh, so grownup.

    My entire extended family lives in the Toronto area. Whereabouts are you moving to?

    I adore you blog.

    Cheers.

  59. Hooray for studs and studs and more studs.

    You look super cute despite the heat. Did you tear the dress yourself? I hate to say it, but I wish we were having a heat wave like that in Vancouver.

  89. I personally like the Topshop version better. They are less severe and will work with more outfits. Also, your studded vest and white dress combo is superb!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I LOVE THE STUDS SOOO MUCH!
    not to mention that they are on your vest andd flat boots.. it really does dress up your plain white shirt.
