So it's officially jeans season in Ottawa with temperatures barely spiking over 22'C meaning fall has come a little early this year. Sad, but also exciting because I'm a huge denim fan so I'm only crying a little over the end of beach season.
I'm wearing Zara pants and a Topshop shirt.
Basically I am now officially hiding inside sweaters and putting my swimsuits back in the drawer until next year.
Exciting week for me friends! I started a new job on Monday and have pretty much been doing that all week! I now work at a French camp from 8am to 5 pm Monday to Friday. It's fun but exhausting! I'm really looking forward to sleeping in on the weekend!!! Anyway this is what's been up on my Instagram!
Not the most exciting week, pretty reminiscent of my week at the lake! Also shout out my my lovely friend Emily for turning 20!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Last week at the lake I noticed several trees that had fallen over from the previous winter. I also remembered how at my apartment in Kingston I don't have any coasters. Somehow, through the magic of brains, I put two and two together inspiring my DIY Wood Coaster project!
They're pretty easy too, all you need is a table saw, a handy dandy father/person who knows how to use table saws (thanks dad!), wood logs from a tree you'd like coasters from, and an area to let them dry.
I cut mine about 2cm thick
I used cedar, balsam, and birch, although my favourite was the balsam!
Once cut, let the coasters air dry for about 24-40 hours, after they are good to use!
Here's to Tuesdays and it not being the first day of the week! I don't really have anything too clever to say today so bare with me and enjoy my most recent look!
My Kimono is from a little boutique in Vancouver, the top is American Apparel, the shorts Zara.
So much love!!
Mondays suck there's no way around that. So either if you're on your way to work, the gym or who even knows where you're going, enjoy this sweet beat!
Just a little something to keep you rocking all weekend.
I think we all know by now how big of a crush I have on Lana, this is one of the classic unreleased gems on the magical youtube. Enjoy this fan made music video, it's very cute.
Little miss <3
Yeah I know, first weeks of August are hard. It's something about the realization that summer is swiftly coming to a close and that the temperatures are dropping (bye bye short shorts). It's also been a long week for me because I started this week by flying from Vancouver to Ottawa, add in a couple shifts at my old job, subtract a proper sleep cycle and you get where I am: exhausted. It's been a week of rough sleep and anxiety because I'm jet lagged and because I'm starting a new job Monday as a French camp councillor (which is super super exciting for me). So excuse while I take Saturday and Sunday off from the blog, but I need to create some lesson plans!
I've been hiding away at the lake trying to return to a normal sleep cycle/life pattern so hopefully that works. In the mean time, I hope all of you embrace the last weeks of summer!
It's days like Thursdays that I'm glad to have shorts with elasticity and flowy shirts that I can just be comfy in. I recently decided that it's not okay to always be uncomfortable in tight things and restrictive things so I'm really getting into comfy attire that still looks like I care, but not that much.
I'm wearing a Zara tee, shorts from a store called XO Bella and shoes are from Aldo.
Not a lengthy post today because I am at the lake and it is pretty hard to find a good area to take pictures that aren't of the scenery. Anyway, I will post in greater depth next week my friends!
Sometimes I feel cheated by life. Sometimes because I'm not a millionaire, sometimes because I never really got to experience the 90s. Mostly because I never got to really experience the 90s. I was born in 94 so I got to do that patterned leggings, super awesome long tunic jumpers young kid fashion, but I missed out on the original grunge and the general bad assery. And that's a hard pill to swallow! So like, whatever, I'm going to be totally rad and pull a 90s day anyway. So suck it (your ring pop I mean).
I'm wearing a Brandy Melville top, an American Apparel skirt, my grandma's chocker and some totally fake Birkenstocks from some totally random place.
Sometimes it would be cool to live in another time, you know? But then I guess I would miss my iPhone..
