striped pants  –  these have been a huge trend lately, as i haven seen them all over instagram and stores such as brandy melville and urban outfitters. i have a few pairs myself, but i could always add to the collection…

tie up tops  –  i love these tops so much! they are very elegant, but at the same time give me european beach vibes.

plaid pieces  –  i love plaid, so so so much. i have a pair of pants, the same ones as pictured in the furthest right image. they are from h&m and i adore them!

graphic tees  –  as i’m sure you will know, the 80’s are making a comeback, and bringing graphic tees with them! i love graphic tees so much, they can be styled with pretty much everything!

funky sunglasses  –  the sunglasses pictured above are super on trend at the moment, always popping up on instagram and pinterest.

mom jeans  –  i love mom jeans so much. they are so comfortable and stylish! i’m still on the hunt for the perfect pair. i had a great pair that i thrifted, but i ended up turning them into shorts.

 

thank you so much for reading! i really hope you enjoyed! what pieces have you been loving lately?

so this is my backpack, its the black fjallraven kanken in the regular size. and i LOVE it so so so much! it looks pretty small, but it can fit a lot inside and it has many pockets and pouches. i have to wear a uniform at my school, so my backpack is one of the ways i express myself style wise!Screen Shot 2018-08-20 at 2.15.03 PM

so here are the items in my kanken…

 

p e n c i l    c a s e  –  this is pretty self-explanatory, but i have a pencil case with a bunch of pens, markers, pencils, & highlighters!

w a t e r   b o t t l e  –  its really important to stay hydrated during school, so i like having a water bottle in my back pack.

c h a r g e r  –  this is a must have if you are allowed to bring any devices to your school!

l a p t o p  –  at my school we can bring our own laptops or use the schools devices. i just bring my one from home.

h a n d s a n t i z e r  –  another essential because theres lots of germs at school.

s n a c k s  –  i love having a pack of gum and a bag of chips in my backpack incase i get hungry!

h a n d c r e a m   &   l i p b a l m   e t c  –  hygiene products are a must bring to school!

e a r b u d s  –  i sometimes take the bus home from school, so these are a lifesaver!!

i p h o n e  –  my school isn’t very strict about us bringing our phones to school, so bring yours if you’re allowed to.

b o o k s  –  pretty self-explanatory, bring binders, notebooks, etc.

 

thank you so much for reading! don’t forget to read claras post!

what are some of your essentials?

a look book – collab!

hello! i hope you all are having an amazing weekend! mine has been pretty laid back, today we went to the lake & had a bbq. tomorrow i’m going to volunteer at a local market, which will be fun!

so i went to vancouver a few days ago, and the majority of these pieces are from that trip. i was thinking of doing a vancouver haul, but you guys would have already seen them in this post haha! i’m going to new york in a few months ( for my birthday, i’m so excited!!! ) and i’ll probably end up buying a ton of items. i’m thinking of combining my vancouver & new york haul, because this look book doesn’t feature all the items i purchased! comment down below if you would rather me combine the hauls or have individual ones. also, if you have been to new york, let me know of some good restaurants, shops, and sights to see!

now onto the post!

top  –  brandy melville

bottoms  –  zara

necklace  –  my mums

 

this is the first outfit, and i think its my favourite! i love the simplicity of it. the mom jeans are from zara, and i really like the wash! i have been searching for the perfect pair of mom jeans and i think i finally found them! they are so comfortable and the perfect colour! the cropped white tank is from brandy melville. i know its really simple, but i love it so much! i like the detailing around the neckline, it really adds to the shirt!

i also really like this second look! i purchased the top and pants off of depop. if you don’t know what depop is, its an app where you can buy mainly used clothing from. i have purchased many item from there and i love it! i’m also going to be selling some pieces there too, so stay tuned!! anyways, i absolutely adore the top! it ties up at the top and is kinda cropped. the pants are really comfortable and cute!

four things with jasper and frankie

hello lovelies! i hope you all are having a great sunday. i’m sorry that i haven’t posted in a while, my summer has been full of activities and i haven’t managed to blog as frequently as i originally hoped. however i have some exciting posts planned!! anyways, today i am collaborating with one of my favourite bloggers frankie over at frankiedotb. i love her blog so so so much! the design is beautiful, her photos are so lovely, and her posts are so thoughtful and original! she blogs about fashion, food, design & so much more! go check out her blog here!

anyways, we thought we would share four things that we are loving right now, here are mine!

 

m a g a z i n e s

i have recently been really into magazines, my favourites being frankie and uppercase. here are a few of my favourite pages from each.

Screen Shot 2018-07-25 at 11.15.58 AM

a few days ago i picked up my first frankie magazine, and fell in love! the design is so amazing, the illustration is gorgeous, and the articles are so great, i just love it! for the longest time i thought that you couldn’t purchase them in canada, and was so jealous of all my friends in australia, england, america and new zealand that could read them. then i went to london drugs (a a little grocery store in canada ) and found one! i was so happy.

Screen Shot 2018-07-25 at 11.15.46 AM

uppercase is full of beautiful illistrations, creative crafts, gorgeous products, and articles mainly focused on art & design. it has so many unique craft ideas and i feel so inspired when i read it! i really love the water colours ( featured in the third picture ) and am planning to try and paint some similar to them!!

 

j u l y    p l a y l i s t

my second pick is my july playlist. i am in love with each and every song found on this playlist. here are a few favourites…

coffee by beabadoobee  –  such a beautiful song, the lyrics are so thoughtful and the song is really well constructed. i love this artist so much, her songs are so creative!

b.o.m.d. by clairo  –  this song is so clever and absolutely gorgeous, i love any song by clairo

afraid by mimi  –  i have been watching mimi on yt for quite a while now and i was so happy when she started writing music! i love her voice, its so beautiful

o u t f i t

my next favourite is this outfit, its super casual, but still cute. my top is from brandy melville, and its amazing. i’ve worn it so many times and i just love it so much! you can’t really tell from the photos, but it has pretty little white flower detailing all over it. i thrifted these shorts. they were only $2! originally they were mom jeans, but i cut them and made them into shorts. i love the wash of these. and finally, my shoes are from converse. they are plain white & really comfortable.

*   thanks raf for helping me out with this photo haha

 

b r e a k f a s t

and finally, my last pick is breakfast, my favourite meal of the day! i love starting my day off right with a nutritious meal, and here are some of my favourites!
