For the Love of Tacos



Writing this post during lunch because it's Taco Tuesday! For me, anyway. Or possibly just in my head. I'm currently NOT eating tacos right now, but I feel like I SHOULD be eating tacos right now. So as I type words away, I'm debating whether to order takeout and get it delivered, or be active and pick it up myself. Hm.. Pizza sounds amazing. Or maybe I should have pasta instead. Oh, I wonder what's new on Zara and Forever 21. And I need to check for train tickets!! (list goes on)

FOUR HOURS LATER...

I haven't eaten a thing, and haven't finished writing. This is just a glimpse of my day-to-day routine. Fun, right? So many distractions! Anyway, this photos are long overdue. I really wasn't planning on posting them because I didn't think it was "blog-worthy," tbh. I changed my mind; if that's not obvious yet. I decided to edit them because tacos. Yes, I had a sudden craving for tacos. Now I introduce you #TacoFestTO, which happened in the summer. June 17-19, to be exact. Told you. Expired photos haha but I thought I'd share it with you anyway. Who doesn't love tacos? Definitely not me.

First Day of Fall



I cannot believe it.. Summer is officially over, although temperatures haven't dropped drastically as of yet (Thankfully!). We are currently still on those hot and humid days, but finally manageable. It's that time when you would need to pack a light jacket for those cool mornings and chilly nights. And the best part, I am no longer melting whenever I'm about and about in the city. Kind of. While I'm a bit sad that summer is over, I am also very excited for fall. In case you don't know, fall is my absolute favourite season. And no, I'm not about that "basic" lifestyle - pumpkin spice lattes, flannel shirts, apple picking, Halloween. You know. Those. Reason is.. I'm thrilled about fall fashion (can't wait to wear all the layers!), and every year I am amazed at the leaves changing colours. There's something about nature preparing itself to hibernate for winter that fascinates me more than seeing all the flowers blossom in the spring. What's your favourite season?

The Waiting Game



I'm one of those people who always misses a package the day it gets delivered. This is mainly due to the fact that I used to be always out when I expect one. Today was different. Well.. yesterday. Package came early afternoon. I literally missed it by a minute. ONE MINUTE. Two, at most. Like an impatient person, I tried to call the company and asked if they could reschedule later that day. Unfortunately, no luck for me. So had to wait until the next day to get it delivered. One thing that sucks about knowing when a package arrives is that I wasted a beautiful summer day. Had to stay indoors to wait for the phone to ring. It's like waiting for a man to call you after a date, but in this case.. it's the delivery guy!

White After Labour Day - Do It !



Labour Day is over, which means pumpkin spice lattes, kids are back to school and.. It's the time when you're supposed to collect all of the white items in your closet, banish them to storage for the next two seasons. Where did we even get this idea that the calendar turns to a different day and suddenly white clothing is a no-go?

Emily Post, perhaps the most trusted name in modern etiquette, suggests that white isn't the real issue here. "Of course you can wear white after Labor Day, and it makes perfect sense to do so in climates where September's temperatures are hardly fall-like," she wrote on the subject. "It's more about fabric choice today than color. Even in the dead of winter in northern New England the fashionable wear white wools, cashmeres, jeans, and down-filled parkas. The true interpretation is 'wear what's appropriate -- for the weather, the season, or the occasion.'"

I've paired this eyelet white lace dress with minimalist accessories and neutral colours. When it finallt starts to get a little bit too cold, just layer over a chunky knit sweater and thigh-high boots for a complete look that transitions to fall perfectly!
