Hello there…

As I write this post, I’m mourning the loss of a white teeshirt to an apricot / pickle juice stain. Its in the wash. Hopefully it recovers.

How is this relevant — you ask?

Lately, I’ve been obsessed with wearing all white everything. There’s something very unattainable about white clothing. When I bought these Acne trainers last March, the fact that they were designer made them unattainable enough. Add in white leather and I was basically in heaven. Problem? Turns out, wearing shoes makes them dirty overtime. Being a young adult who’s pretty lazy with garment maintenance (I wear hoodies 99% of the time), my mom gave me a talking to. Turns out, Mr. Clean Magic Eraser makes white shoes look like new. Just remember to wash the laces separately. Still haven’t done that yet….

On a different note, this Asmar bamboo tee has been an essential during this heat wave. Keeps the sun burns at bay — plus its crazy soft and just thick enough to not be see through.

Let me know what your favourite white pieces are in the comments! See you next week <3.

Hello friends!

Today I found inspiration from a person I saw. Call me a copycat. It’s cool. I was on  the tube a week ago, and I saw a girl wearing a sheer, long sleeved shirt over jeans and under a leather jacket. She wore a chain overtop. She was crazy cool.

Once the envy subsided, I decided to copy her. I already owned most of what she was wearing, I had simply never thought of putting these items together. Safe to say I’m obsessed.

Since its revision period, I don’t have any life changing updates. I’ve been in the library till far too late, blasting Jaden Smith and drinking copious amounts of tea from my Tate Modern mug. Sometimes, when things are not so fun, we all need coping measures.

Comment below if you’ve ever copied someone’s outfit! Also, feel free to tell me you’re revision coping strategies — I need all the help I can get.

Hello friends!

Did the title get your attention?

As of late, I’ve been matching my clothes unintentionally. Whether its an all purple outfit to the gym, or this green look, it’s what I like to call a  “subconscious” way of dressing.

Right after this photo shoot, the sky started hailing. Thankfully, I managed to avoid it. However, this hybrid weather has caused me to wear shorter dresses with massive jumpers.

Despite the hail, I’m optimistic at the moment. All of my essays are done! In two weeks, I’ll be back home in Canada. Words cannot summarize how much I love Canada, and I can’t wait to attend the festivals this summer & intern at one of my favourite companies.

Thanks for reading! I hope you guys have enjoyed this week, and are inspired to try something new. Comment below: how do you deal with hybrid weather? Any lazy styling tricks?
