Happy 4th of July to those of you who are American ! 🇺🇸
Today’s outfit of the day features these brand new jeans I just purchased from Zara. I’m in love with these embroidered jeans but I had such a hard time getting the sizing right! I first bought these jeans in a size 6 after trying on a size 4 in store and finding it too small. I just bought a size 6 without trying them on again assuming it would fit ( Zara changeroom lines are massive). I have two other pairs of jeans from Zara- both in size 6- one pair fits comfortably and one pair is massive on my hips. When I got home and put the jeans on, I found them to be tiny! I was so dissapointed and I brought them in a couple days later to exchange the size 6 for an 8. The size 8 fits me but it’s a tad loose around the waist. Has anyone else had weird sizing issues with Zara brand jeans or is it just me? 😝 Anyways, the jeans are still really cute and there’s no way I’m returning them again!
The grey cropped tank top I’m wearing is from Urban Outfitters, and the shoes are the Ruffle mules from Irene’s Story that I’ve been getting a lot of wear out of this summer. I decided to accessorize the outfit with this black wrap around string choker from Urban Outfitters.
This past weekend to celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday my boyfriend and I embarked on a road trip up north to stay at my family’s cottage. Along the way we decided to stop at one of my favourite childhood ice cream spots – “Brainfreezz” which is located in this adorable old tiny town called Thornton . It’s a small little ice cream shop that runs out of an old house and it has been there for quite a while as I’ve been stopping there on summer day trips home from the cottage since I was about 8. They have some of the best ice cream flavours ever and the tastiest waffle cones! They also have amazing yogurt ice cream -which is what I ordered- and they allow you to choose either chocolate or vanilla frozen yogurt and mix it with two kinds of frozen fruit. I opted for vanilla frozen yogurt mixed with raspberries and blueberries in a waffle cone and it was incredible! My boyfriend ordered an ice cream flavour called raspberry cheesecake and he enjoyed it a lot as well.
I was going through my expansive photo library yesterday and I rediscovered a ton of photography I had taken on past vacations and trips. I decided to make a weekly thread where each Friday I’ll post a picture or two that I’ve taken from somewhere in the world.
This week, for my first Travel Photography Friday post, I’ve decided to feature some photos that I took on a trip to Aruba in April of 2015.
This little old chapel known as the Alto Vista was the first ever built in Aruba and is located in isolation amidst a desert landscape. The original church was built in the 1700s but this structure that stands there now was built in the 1950s. We had to rent ATV’s to reach this spot and it was an amazing experience.
A photo I took off the beach near where we were staying known as Eagle Beach. The waters were so clear and pristine and the sand was clean and well maintained. Definitely one of the best beaches I’ve ever been to.
