Fun with Colour & Prints

I've been really into colourful patterns and prints this summer. A bright sunny day mixed with bright prints really makes my day. This outfit encompasses it all. For this look, I opted for a vibrant floral/tropical print flutter shorts. The whole day I felt like I was wearing a skirt. But no. It's a pair of shorts. For real. To be honest, I wasn't completely sure if pairing stripes and tropical prints was a good idea. I guess by focusing on a certain colour and working around it is the key.

As it turned out "coral" will be the focal point of this ensemble. You'd think this shade of orange isn't the best to wear on a hot summer day. On the contrary, it gives off a very cool vibe and pleasing to the eyes.

On Wednesdays, I Wear Pink

As a forever Mean Girls fan, this post is inspired by the movie. **points to the title** And if things can get any more coincidental... I am currently also wearing a pink shirt while I write this. Funny eh? I actually didn't realize this until right now. Anyway, for the past few weeks or months or specifically this season, I have been loving every shade of pink. I've always perceived it as a very girly colour in the past, but now I consider it to be a little more mature. Pairing it with black is one of my favourite combinations.

Grapefruit Moon

It seems that Mondays are my usual days off this month; so my friend and I decided to go out and grab food. I realized there aren't a lot of places that do weekday brunch. I have no clue brunch are usually on the weekends. Silly me ;) Anyways, we wanted to try a local restaurant across the city... While I was searching the internet about brunch restaurants in Toronto, I came across this around The Annex (Bathurst & Bloor). There were a variety of choices and I'm sure I will get to try most of them.
