Around Town

My entire life has been spent in the same town, almost all of my life on the same street! I know that is uncommon for most people, but for my mom, brothers and I it's always been our reality. This fall I will be moving out and to a new town, although it's only 15 minutes away from home, it will be a totally new experience being away from the road I have known so well. As we watch our home come together (today we pick our design features/upgrades!) I start reflecting on all the time I have spent in this town. I absolutely love these streets, the time I have spent here through my childhood, and I really love the newly re-designed town square. 

When we shot these photos we spent the first part of the day enjoying iced coffee in the town square, then went for lunch downtown in our soon to be home town. As much as I love the busy streets of Toronto's city life, I am so happy to be living in the suburbs and enjoying these quiet corners of the town.

White Dress, Classic

A classic white dress with feminine details like this ruffle edge and eyelet contract will always win me over and this beauty is less than $100 at Anthropologie right now!

Warmer Days

Over the past couple weeks we have had a taste of the summer heat and it's got me so excited for this summer. I always look forward to long summer nights spent out on our deck, drinks on the patio of our favourtie local pub with our friends and evening walks with my parents, for the last summer I live at home. I am so looking forward to this weather sticking around and can hardly wait to pack up my winter gear for good! When it comes to summer dressing, I love bold vibrant colours and funky prints like these J. Crew Factory shorts. Below are some of my favourite bright. bold, prints for summer. Thanks for reading, xo!

The New Tie-dye

Forever 21 Jacket (under $50) | 1 State Blouse (on sale, now just $50!)| Anthropologie Denim (also on sale!) | Rebecca Minkoff Cross-Body | Bass & Co. Wedge Sandals (old, similar options herehere & here) | Prada Sunglasses MAC Lipstick in Candy-YumYum | Brina Box Earrings

A few weeks ago I started seeing this print taking over my Instagram feed and I fell in love with the print but wasn't sold on the full dress version. When I found there was a top option it instantly piqued my interest and when it went on sale at The Bay I knew it was a done deal! I am loving the updated twist on a tie-dye top and how light and airy this top is, it's perfect for layering for these cooler spring evenings and will pair perfectly with white shorts and sandals for hot summer days. Now I might just have to go back for the dress since it's under $100 right now and maybe this Flamingo dress because, seriously how cute is it!?. Be sure to check out the sales on right now and the great spring collection from 1 State!
