The day is finally here!!
After what has felt like an eternity, I’m so excited to finally get to share this with you all. I’ve received an outpouring of support since I first revealed that I would be creating a blog, and it is honestly such a surreal feeling. Before I get into the whole reason you’re here (which is of courseee to read about my outfits because you all love them so much – wink wink), I just wanted to take a second to thank everyone who’s helped me get to this point, as well as all of you readers who are making this a reality for me! I’m feeling so grateful and full of love.
Now that the mushy part is over, it’s time for the fun stuff.
The winters here in Northern Ontario are definitely a tough time of year. With large amounts of snow and extremely cold temperatures, doing basic day to day tasks can become a challenge, which is why I’m convinced the government gave us a holiday, referred to as Family Day, to let us catch a bit of a break.
This year, we’ve been quite fortunate and have had a pretty mild winter. Since it’s been warm, I intended on spending my Family Day outside with my boyfriend. Except that didn’t happen. Because instead of having normal Canadian winter weather, we got rain. And I really hate rain. BUT the one plus to all of this? I had just recently purchased the most adorable umbrella and matching shoes, and had yet to actually take them out onto the streets. How convenient.
This adorable matching umbrella and high heel set, which I picked up from my local ALDO Shoes, are adorned with the cutest lip/kiss print. I’ve been pretty hooked on this print since I purchased a pair of earrings sporting the kiss this past fall, so picking up these new spring releases was a no-brainer. The pattern is bold and fun yet simple enough to pair with a lot of outfits, and are surprisingly versatile.
As a fan of shorter and chunkier heels, I was pretty hesitant about the 4.25 inch stiletto on these badboys, but I’m so glad I gave them the benefit of the doubt. They fit like a glove, are comfortable, and I somehow manage to not look like a baby giraffe learning to walk while wearing them, which is always a plus. These are definitely my new favourite shoes and they make me extremely excited to see what the new SS17 retail collections will bring out.
I paired these beauties with my favourite pair of ripped skinnies from American Eagle, a light pink cami I picked up last year from RW&Co, and this beautiful navy blue coat that I scored at H&M a few years back for $5 (not even kidding)!!!
This outfit was the perfect way to brighten up what was looking to be a gloomy day, and although the photoshoot to get these images didn’t last long as a result of an increasing downpour ruining pretty much everything, I’m glad it held off just long enough to snap these for my first post!!
SOO, I hope you all enjoyed my first post, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that you all tune in for the next one. As this is a new venture for me, I am extremely open to ideas, so feel free to comment below with any suggestions of what you guys would like to see in future posts! Thank you all xoxo
