Dress Up

I don’t know about you, but I’d be oh so happy to live in a place that doesn’t even bother to sell tights. Though some ladies happily live in them, I find them itchy, annoying, and not ideal aesthetically. Perhaps that’s why I always switch over to bare legs the very first chance I get, even if it’s not really that time quite yet.

This look was actually part of a video I just finished shooting with Transitions Lenses (stay tuned for updates!) and while we were on-site we decided to snap a few quick behind the scenes photos at one of my favourite Toronto walls. I have to admit I was a bit chilly, but I just couldn’t wait to get some sun on my skin!

So excited to share the finished video clip with you!

In a completely random twist of fate a few weeks back I somehow found myself at the Vans sample sale here in Toronto, and upon learning that all of the shoes just happened to be my size, I knew I’d been brought there for a reason.

Even though I’m usually not super into animal prints, I found myself inexplicably drawn to a pair of leopard print Vans, and after comparing them with a few other much more typically RAOP pairs, I decided to take them home.

As strange as it sounds, these loud slip ons have managed to breathe new life into my wardrobe, providing a much needed pop of texture and fun to otherwise ordinary outfits. Though they seemed like a strange purchase at the time, I’m so glad I “adopted” them into my pastel life. I guess you never know when or how you’re going to surprise yourself!

The time for summer dresses is almost over, so I’m doing my very best to sport my favourite frocks tights-free while I’m able to!

I picked up this sweet little heart print number at H+M a few weeks ago, and though I think it will look pretty adorable with knee socks and a cardigan this fall, I’ve been wearing it pretty much nonstop these hot August days! When paired with some neon pink Ban.do accessories and my cotton candy hair it’s pretty adorable, don’t you think?
