What I'm Loving Lately

Travel Case - c/o Poppy & Peonies

The new year is in full swing, and I can't believe that we're already in the middle of January!  This month has been pretty incredible for me already and while I normally wait until the end to share my monthly favourites, I just couldn't resist to do so now - there's just so much great stuff! So, without further ado here is what I have been absolutely loving lately.

Poppy & Peonies The Travel Case


I shared in my yearly roundup that travel was going to be a priority for me this year, so I've been on the hunt for the best gear.  I love this hard-cover travel case from Poppy & Peonies for it's practicality; the inside is made of a wirable canvas, there's lots of pockets and compartments to store cosmetics as well as jewelry, and it's hard exterior protests the precious cargo inside - I absolutely hate getting to a destination only to find my bronzer shattered!  Bonus points for the pretty design; practical and pretty - my favourite!

Coat - Reiss

The Perfect Pink Coat from Reiss


Going back a few months, I was on the hunt for the perfect pink coat. While many coats came close, I couldn't find one in the perfect dusty rose colour that would also be warm enough to wear in the winter. Enter the Reiss Forbes coat - I think I'm in love! Not only is this coat the perfect shade of pink that I had been searching for, but it's also surprisingly warm while being fairly thin - probably because it's made wool.  The darker colour makes me less paranoid as I splash through the snowy city with a cup of take-out coffee, and I love the wrap-around look. Overall, I'm very happy and it just goes to show that good things comes to those who wait.



Hailed Coffee


If you follow me on Instagram, you would have noticed an abundance of coffee photos taken over top of perfect white tile. All of the photos are taken at Hailed Coffee and it's not an insta-illusion, I'm actually obsessed with the beautiful café! The lattes are delicious, they offer non-dairy options for milk, they do matcha lattes (!!) and the staff is incredibly nice and welcoming. If you're in Toronto or the surrounding areas, I highly encourage you to give Hailed Coffee a visit - 801 Gerrard St. East.

Dress - Aritzia, Boots - c/o Le Chateau

Mini Dresses and Over-The-Knee Boots


I'm not someone who has a lot of variety when it comes to her day-to-day looks; I usually just find a combination and stick with it for a few months. While the last few months I've been stuck on midi skirts and sweaters, now I've been favouring mini dresses and over-the-knee boots.  I just love the effortless look and subtle retro vibes of a shorter hemline and high boots. While I'm on the hunt for more mini dresses, I've been wearing my Le Chateau italian-made suede boots nonstop - they're so comfortable! Expect to see more of this variation in future outfit posts on the blog.

That's it for my favourites as of late! What have you been into for the start of 2017? Let me know!

    1. LOL! This is true. But only when said lattes have a mental breakdown. Not good for photos!
