Surrealist Spring Saturday



A couple of Saturdays ago I ventured out into the lovely spring weather to view the Surrealist exhibit at the AGO. Walking through Queen's Park during light rainfall was gorgeous and inspiring so I took many photos along the way. The colours, the smells, and the light breeze on my face was calming and made for a delightful stroll.

Spring Is Here!

hat: Le Cache * dress: Roots * tights: HUE * moccasins: Minnetonka

Spring has sprung, the trees are green, and summer fun is happening already. More good news: I got a job at Anthropologie! And with my employee discount I bought a beautiful blue and white ankle length summer dress . I can't wait for a lovely summer day to wear it and frolic in a park somewhere!

Do You Believe There Are Treasures In The Ocean?

During my trips to New York I would visit a store called Anthropologie in Soho. It is a sister company to Urban Outfitters, kind of like Urban's hippie older sister. It was an absolutely lovely store full of apparel and furniture worthy of calling art. I haven't visited New York in about two years, and have missed that store dearly. But just two days ago the first Canadian store opened and I went right away - the most beautiful store I have ever seen, and the largest. I spent 2 hours in there and revisited the store today, purchasing many beautiful items that I will covet for a long time to come. Definitely my outfits in the near future will include these items for you to see. This store matches my personality and style absolutely flawlessly. If I could live in any store, it would be that one. I would make it my home and live in peace within it.

If you are in the mood for beauty you may watch this lovely video. The music is by Angus & Julia Stone, a band I am currently adoring.

Flightless Bird

cardigan: found for free! * dress: Wilfred * tights: HUE * boots: Hunter
Inspiration comes in many forms. For me, it is mostly in music. Flightless Bird, American Mouth makes me want to create great and beautiful things. It also brings out heart-warming yet lonely emotions. I can't quite explain them, but listen and you might feel it too.
