In April of 2019, I went on an overnight trip to Philadelphia with my husband, where we stayed close to the University of Pennsylvania. As a city, Philadelphia left an impression on me and was where I saw far more greenery than I ever had in New York. On this trip I did not pack a lot, I only had brought a carry-on with me and decided to pack two outfits. These outfits’ main goals were to keep me comfortable during the travel to and from Philadelphia, and for walking around the city. Let me just say that Philadelphia is one of the coolest cities I have visited and it has unique restaurants and coffee shops that provide better food for better value than that of NYC. One restaurant stands out the most in my mind and that is the White Dog Café, where food is locally sourced, and you get to eat while looking at dog statues/ prints everywhere. My husband and I ate there twice because that’s how much we enjoyed the atmosphere and food.Continue reading “OOTD Throwback: Wearing Veronica Beard In Philadelphia”
In 2018/2019 I was able to experience big city life while living in Manhattan, New York. I would often have fun exploring the city on my own, and of course with my husband. Every few weekends my husband and I would come up with a plan to see different neighbourhoods in Manhattan. Usually to eat at new restaurants, visit the museums, or to go out with friends. One weekend my husband and I were set on visiting SoHo. If you are curious what SoHo means it is an abbreviation for South of Houston Street which is where the SoHo neighbourhood begins. Fun fact if you want to look like a local do not pronounce the ‘Houston’ as if you would for Houston Texas, instead pronounce it like ‘house-ton’.Continue reading “OOTD Throwback: SoHo, New York”
Occasionally I find myself inspired to write about fashion designers who have either an interesting past or who have made contributions to the fashion scene. In the past, I have written about Chanel’s Russian connection, but since I am once again living in America and have previously lived in New York I find it fitting to write about this iconic American designer. Well, Lovelies I hope you will enjoy this lengthy read and my funny poses in a dress from this very designer.Continue reading “Halston: America’s Most Iconic & Tragic Fashion Designer”
I once posted this very look on my now-defunct blog pawprintsandmint and could not resist re-doing this post for a throwback as it documented one of my favourite days captured in New York City. Living in New York had a lot of fun moments, and I am grateful to have been able to live in Manhattan for the experience alone. I am also as equally grateful to not be a permanent resident of the city- because New York keeps its mystery in small doses.Continue reading “OOTD Throwback: NYC, The Met & a Floral Dress”
The holidays are nearing and i’m that holiday mood! I’ve already decided on what gifts to give, and the wrapping paper (I’ll be using a mix between brown paper with twine, and paper that has little reindeers). I’m also thinking of making my boyfriends mother, and family a special Italian dessert- with a few tweaks involving lemon zest and limoncello. Now since it is the holiday season, I thought it would be a good idea to make Casual Sunday a little more “dressier”, but will still have comfy, and casual elements.

Privet Matryoshkas, happy Casual Sunday! I’m excited about this post because it involves a romper and Irina Shayk. You see the romper that’s on Irina shayk as she tries to hail a cab in New York, is a romper that looks similar to a romper I own (from H&M by L.O.G.G- which is also featured in this post if you want a look similar to Irina’s), and wear every chance I get. This romper exudes comfort, beachy vibes, and suits my skin tone making it my HG of outfits for the summer. I also must confess that I have a romper obsession at the moment and I’ve already bought 4 this summer ranging from Dressy (for dining out), to Casual (perfect for Casual Sundays). I love wearing these out for casual, thoughtless style days..you know when you don’t really feel like putting an outfit together, and you don’t want to wear a dress, and you’re in no mood for playing mix and match with a two piece outfit. A romper is the third possible solution that can solve so many problems, just grab it, throw it on and go enjoy the day. Continue reading “Irina Shayk Romping’ Around”
