Grown Up Pants

[[outfit details]]  trousers with suspenders//vintage [thrifted]  top//old [Vera Moda]  necklace//vintage [The Edit]  booties//vintage [thrifted] I just want to say, I’m pretty excited that I’m finally able to say that I own trousers. It just feels right. How else could you even describe these pants? See? Calling them pants just doesn’t them justice. I was excited when I saw them at the thrift store, but also very skeptical. I figured they would look terrible, but I’m all about equal opportunity (and going into the change room as few times as possible)... Read The Rest →

in the studio with Wild Blue Yonder

Hey everyone, so glad you could join me for a tour of Amber Aasman’s studio where she runs her handmade jewelry business Wild Blue Yonder. The studio is in the attic of Amber’s home and it is full of natural light and beautiful jewelry. It was so fun looking around at all her pieces spread throughout the space, in different stages of being finished. Each one is unique, made with found fragments of wood, bark and lichen from travels in our great Canadian outdoors. Often overlooked details are now on... Read The Rest →

at home with Jentine&Matt

I got to visit Jentine (Yen) from The Edit last week in the home that she shares with her husband Matt and two kitty babes, Kyle and Bec. They’ve lived in this house for 6 years, but Yen has lived in Hamilton since her family immigrated here 27 years ago. Funny story, they moved into their current home the same weekend that we moved into ours and they live just around the corner from us, but we weren’t friends yet so we had no idea. But now we go on... Read The Rest →

Train Yard

    [[outfit details]]  blazer//vintage [thrifted]  pants//new [Winners]  clogs//vintage [thrifted]  t-shirt//new [H&M]  necklaces//long chain [The Edit] tassel [Aldo] Guys, I just don’t know what to write about. Even the title of this post sucks. It’s a real problem. I mean, I’ve been busy. There are things happening. But when I sit down to write, nothing comes. I’m really excited about these clogs I scored at Value Village a couple weeks ago though. They’ve been on my thrift list for a long time. Does anyone else do that? I have a... Read The Rest →

Strange Days

[[outfit details]]  wool dress//vintage [thrifted]  denim shirt//vintage [thrifted]  jeans//Levi’s [GOTW]  clogs//vintage [thrifted]  pin//Rosehound Apparel [GOTW]   We took these pictures when we had some sun. You know. Further back than we can remember. It’s funny how that is. I guess it’s just how we are as humans. We can have pretty short term memories. Do you think it’s a defense mechanism in a way? It protects us from the pain of memory sometimes. When we need it. And then that thing we’ve been missing will come back again and we’ll... Read The Rest →

at home with Abby&Andrew

Sorry for the brief hiatus friends! I’ve been working on getting ahead of my game, lining up photo shoots and what not, but in the process took an unintentional blogging break. I have lots of good stuff coming up in the next few weeks though, and I’m excited to kick it off with Abby and Andrew’s minimal and cozy space. I met Abby through volunteering at 541 Eatery&Exchange. She moved to Hamilton with her husband Andrew about 3 years ago and shortly after getting here, Abby started volunteering at 541,... Read The Rest →

Everyday Vintage

[[outfit details] ]  sweater//vintage [thrifted]  top//H&M [thrifted]  jeans//vintage [thrifted]  boots//Blundstones [Miller’s Shoes]  toque//Stay Home Club [GOTW]  bracelet//vintage [The Edit] This outfit, to me, is the perfect blend of vintage and modern for everyday. I know sometimes it seems like vintage is really only suitable for fancy occasions, what with those sequin dresses and sparkly costume jewelry. And obviously that’s a super fun way to work it into your closet. But, I definitely think mixing your vintage pieces in with your everyday outfits is not only doable, but makes getting dressed...

at home with Ben&Kira

One of my favourite parts of the holidays was having time to stop by a friend’s place for a nice lazy coffee for an hour or two. Everyone is off work (or school) and in slow down mode. We got to stop in at Ben and Kira’s cozy attic apartment just before Christmas and everything was festive and cozy. Ben made us delicious cappuccinos and Kira had just baked shortbread. I mean, seriously. It was pretty perfect. Their kitten Marvin was scampering around, but also doing some serious posing for... Read The Rest →

It’s a New Year.

[outfit details]  Pendleton Blazer//vintage [thrifted]  fur collar//vintage [thrifted]  jeans//Levi’s [GOTW]  Doc Marten’s//vintage [gifted]  knuckle ring//Studio 205   So it’s the New Year. Well, almost anyway. What are you doing New Year’s Eve? Mostly the only thing I like about that question is the song. Or even better, this song. Other than that, I mostly don’t care when it comes to the New Year’s party thing. Maybe because you feel like you have to do something? I just don’t like it when people tell me what to do. I want to... Read The Rest →

Merry Christmas!

[outfit details]  dress//vintage [thrifted]  leather pants//Danier [thrifted]  booties//Clark’s [thrifted]  necklace//vintage [The Edit] Here we are again, Christmas is almost upon us. Hope you guys are all enjoying or looking forward to time spent with family and friends, or, more importantly, taking some precious time for yourself to really enjoy the season. I know it’s a busy time of year, and there’s really nothing we can do to stop that. But you should also take time to just read a book, sit back with a coffee, catch up with a friend....
