summertime bolds

I've been absent for so long, because my life has been a whirl. I've been busy with graduation, my birthday, and a trip to NYC. I finally have time to relax, and I'm ready to get back to blogging and the other things I love.

This summer is off to a great start, as I've already had so many great experiences. I've spent a lot of time learning photography from one of my closest friends, and just this week I'll start shadowing another wonderful photographer from my area. I find it hard to be still, because I have so many ideas for shoots and projects. 

I had my friend snap these pics last week when I spent the day downtown observing a senior portrait shoot. Even though it's summer, I still find myself leaning towards wearing jeans. But I did bring out my bright shoes and matching polish for the occasion.

Christmas and New Year's are over, and it seems the appeal of winter is gone with them. I'm cold all the time, and it can be hard to stay cheerful when every morning I wake up to endless miles of snow.

But just because it's practically Antarctica outside, doesn't mean I can't enjoy myself. I've been surrounding myself with my friends, and we've spent some days inside watching horror movie after horror movie, and others, outside braving the cold. There's a sort of beauty to the frost covered buildings and streets, and feeling the air so fresh and sharp can make you feel alive.

I ventured out with my friend today, who snapped some pictures for me. I've been loving my boyfriend jeans lately, because I feel like they add an edge to any outfit, and pairing them with a bright red top took my outfit from boring to bold.

Hope you're all having a lovely week. Keep your heads up, the winter can't last forever. xx

With the weather growing colder, I find myself resorting to layers on layers. Cardigans are my favourite, and I love pairing them with a knitted scarf. This one has been my most recent love - it was a steal at Urban, on sale for half off!

I've been spending my time lately working on art projects and adventuring with friends. It's finally Christmas break, and I'm excited to finally relax. Most days you'll probably be able to find me huddled in a giant sweater and a mess of covers, pouring over my favourite books and magazines, watching the snow falling outside.

This past week, one of my classes took a trip to Chicago, my favourite city. I was so glad to be back, and the rainy day made it even more beautiful. Something about a rain-soaked downtown is magical to me. The puddles reflecting the headlights. The whirl of colourful heels and umbrellas. The tops of buildings disappearing into the clouds.

We saw lots of art and explored some of the coolest parts of the city. It was an exhausting day, but even as I got back on the train to go home, I felt myself wishing that I was staying and living out my dream in the streets of Chicago. One day, I know I'll live there, but for now these visits will have to do.
