Summer Must Have – High Waisted Denim Shorts

Bench high waisted pale blue denim shorts

Home is Toronto. That’s for sure – no matter how far away we roam we’re always drawn back to the place we call home. Since my childhood I’ve had the pleasure of calling different parts of Toronto home. From west to east, downtown to uptown, (and eventually north of the city) it was really nice to experience the different ambiances generated by the uniqueness of each neighbourhood. With that being said, shooting these shorts for Bench and their tagline #LoveMyHood running through my head, these photos had to be shot in a place that at some point claimed that hashtag for me.

I haven’t owned a pair of pink pants since I was in college. And to be honest, I was all set to pass on the trend this time around. But then I saw that my beloved Free People had a pair. Their pink paper bag pant has such an adorable cinched high waist, and the colour is rather pretty. Upon a quick mental scan of my spring summer capsule I realized that all of my pants are blue jeans and figured a pair of pink paper bag pants would be a fun and addition.

Walks in the park (or nature trails in my case) just got a whole lot more comfortable and cute thanks to Sanuk. I love me a good pair of comfy flats and being someone who lives in moccasins at times, I was excited to try these Sanuk sidewalk surfers. I was immediately drawn to the bright pink tweed and with winter being just around the corner, the faux shearling lining seemed too perfect. I couldn’t think of a better way to try them out than getting away from it all and heading out to explore some new landscapes. Although the sun was out, it was a bit chilly but the shearling did it’s thing and kept my feet warm. Talk about comfort though…these shoes were so soft and comfy, it almost feels like you’re walking on a plush teddy bear – you know one of those really nice and soft ones that you just wanna squish because they’re so soft. I had them on all day and did not want to take them off when I got home because they just felt too nice on. But really, it’s no wonder they are so comfy with their blend of real yoga mat footbeds and soft surrounding material. They even held up really good on the trails and were quite comfortable to walk in even on uneven and rocky terrain. If you’re looking for comfortable footwear, whether it be for walking the trails or simply doing your grocery shopping, these will not disappoint you. Plus they come in all sorts of funky styles and patterns to keep you smiling while you walk around comfortably in your Sanuks.

#NeverUncomfortable indeed.

70’s Floral Wrapped in Leopard








Dress c/o Free People. Oversize scarf, Zara. Top, Joe Fresh. Bag c/o Pinkstix. Boots, Ralph Lauren (Winners).

We’ve been lucky the past two weeks with unseasonably warmer temperatures. So warm in fact, that I was able to wear my Free People tunic as a dress without the need for a) leggings or b) overcoat or jacket. And believe me, the blanket scarf wasn’t really needed either, but I had planned it for this look. Along with a long knit overcoat which I forgot to grab to work the morning of, which in the end worked out because I probably wouldn’t have worn it anyways. I had been planning on transitioning this tunic into my Fall wardrobe anyways, but planned on wearing it over tights or pants – I guess those looks will have to wait, but I am not complaining about being able to wear this short number bare legs and all….mid November.
