you spin me right round baby right round

Hey Beautifuls!
It was a long weekend here in Canada, so like most Torontonians, I left behind the hustle and bustle of the city to head to Muskoka, our cottage country. Now, cottages are meant to be places of relaxation and calm, but let me tell you I was NEITHER this weekend. We went up to our family friends' place, which has NO electricity or hot water - there wasn't even a shower! Needless to say, there are no outfit posts from this weekend, since I didn't wear much more than plaids and men's jeans, and my hair turned into dreadlocks, as my heavily textured hair tends to do when I don't wash it. Anyways, it was an experience... but I now know I am definitely not one who enjoys "roughing" it.

Here are some more photos from London! They were taken while wandering around Oxford and Bond Streets. Apparently some of my lovely readers saw me during my trip across the pond and I do SO wish you had come up and said hi!


(Talula blazer, Wilfred tank, vintage velvet bustier, DIY men's jeans, target shoes, thrifted belt)
Hope everyone else had a wonderful, and slightly more comfortable weekend than mine!

  2. I always get excited when you update your blog. Very lovely look, relaxed and chic. Sounds like visiting my parents' house right in the forest. It's always a fun experience. x

  3. Gorgeous! Love everything about this outfit. But especially the blazer and the shorts. I wish I could get away one of these days for a peaceful time away from the city! Maybe I should suggest to my hubby to rent a cottage somewhere as well. :)

  4. so comfy and relaxing. i like it.

    i love muskoka.. the vibe is completely different which i love. i just have the best memories of muskoka and friends' cottages from years ago.. actually, i think the minute we just get into barrie/past barrie, i get excited. it's actually kind of sad considering that's where all the ontarian "hicks" and "trash"/"hipsters" and what not reside. whatevs, it's sweeeet anyhow.
