young (ish), (sorta) wild, and free (like a bird).

Friendship sessions are ALL I can think about now!

My bestie here, Elexis, suggested that we do a 'friend shoot' and wear matching outfits! She supplied one (as a super sweet birthday gift!), we each picked the same jumpsuit, and I said to bring just an extra outfit. Surprisingly, we both brought a similar 'feel' look. They each showcased our free, wild, and weird spirits! 

Though I don't have a remote for my camera - which means I had to run back and forth to focus and set the timer - this was one of the funnest days I have had in a long time! It was such an awesome idea by Elexis and I want to do more like yesterday!

So, if you're in the area and interested in a friend session, shoot me a message and we can chat about it!!

Outfits:

Elexis: Top and Bottoms from American Eagle

Charlotte: Top - Urban Outfitters | Bottoms - Top Shop

27 - i'm in heaven.

Rhyming is also my jam.

I just wanted to pop on here quickly and thank EVERYONE who made my 27th birthday the best one yet! I have never felt more loved and appreciated by friends than I did this past week. Making friends as an adult has been a journey, but I have finally found the perfect group of friends who are extremely selfless and there for you when you need help. 

I love you all so much (people reading, family,  and my amazing, beautiful, strong, hilarious friends)!

And special thank you to Elexis for the most beautiful cake that I have even been given! :D

Cozy Grey Days.

The coziest sweaters are the ones that have sleeves longer than your arms so that you can tuck your hands inside, am I right? I love this sweater from TopShop. It's the perfect sweater for the Spring weather that is slowly making it's way to us here in Canada (well, Ontario and East. Sorry Prairie provinces!). 

I love a cute sweater because it allows the "basic" me to look a little more put together while also staying warm. I still love a good ol' "jeans and t-shirt" look, but I have been preferring a "jeans and sweater" outfit. Everything looks good with jeans my friends, even more jeans (aka. jean jackets)! Almost all of my jeans, or I should say, jeggings, are from American Eagle. I may work there but I have been wearing AE jeans/jeggings since I was 16 (10 years!!) and I swear by them! Great quality, decent price, and the stretch-to-fit has only gotten better. I live in my jeans, so comfort is key. (Sorry, got a little off topic. I just really love AE pants and want to share my thoughts with whoever will read them).

 

Feelin' Girly.

It's not too often that I a) wear a skirt, or b) find one that fits me properly. Well, I found my newest and greatest love (I feel like I will say that about every new piece I get..). I saw this skirt right before I checked out at the TopShop section in Hudson's Bay. Normally, I have a hard time finding pieces that are "me" and within my somewhat stubborn price range at TopShop. But I hit the jackpot this day! 

I saw the skirt, saw it was on sale, looked at the size and went for it (fun fact: I almost NEVER try on clothes before purchasing). And I was lucky enough to also find on this day a beautiful beige peacoat at H&M for only ... wait for it ... $25!! Uh, heck yes! 

This new "journey" into fashion is honestly - sort of embarrassed to say - such a thrill (I really have no life, haha!). I have begun this fascination with walking into clothing stores with no intention of buying anything, and just making outfit ideas for when I am ready to buy the item. Is that weird? I won't wait for your answer. It is weird. 

All in all, I love this skirt from TopShop, this jacket from H&M, just the whole outfit (the black one piece is from Ardene)! It makes me feel beautiful, confident, and very much a woman. I just can't get enough of it!

Sort of an out of my element type of question for you - would any of you be interested in posts on outfits under a certain dollar amount? I used to see other fashion bloggers do them and they are popular on YouTube, so I thought, if people are interested, I would do like one post like that a month?? Let me know! (I may just do it even if no one says, haha!)
