Things have been pretty weird in Toronto this summer. It's been cold, and rainy, and we're one month into a city workers' strike; there is garbage everywhere. All this cold and damp is making me feel extra tired. I was yawning in the first picture above.
A lot of really amazing things have happened recently, though. On Friday I had lunch and a quick thrift stop with Laura Jane, who writes for the excellent blog nogoodforme.com! I adore everything LJ writes -- my favourite post of all time was her guide to astrological perfumery. She was just as hilarious and sweet and lovely in person, and look, we agree that you should go see Sonja's window at Magic Pony.
I also picked up this Built By Wendy mini canvas anorak this weekend at Robber. It was heavily discounted and I am looking forward to wearing it in the fall (although really, I could probably get away with wearing it this summer, this weird, weird summer!).
I think my style is starting to change yet again and I'm definitely veering away from ruffles and towards things that are more masculine. Built By Wendy is the perfect brand for achieving that balance, I think -- girly and boyish all at once. I love this jacket. I feel as though I should be wearing it while standing on rocks near breaking waves. Moody. Like this summer.
(Oh and thank you so much for your comments on my last post -- I tried to respond to each of you!)
