Floral Pants and Gelato

This is one of the comfiest outfits I've EVER worn. I tend to dress for style over comfort but I think I somehow got the best of both worlds in one outfit here! Who knew! Seriously though I'm generally comfortable in everything I wear but this, this felt like I was wearing straight up PJs in public! These pants are a recent find from The Bay (sale- hayy!!!), and the shirt has been my go-to for weeks. I wore this to get my first gelato of the season with some friends. I inhaled it too quickly to show you a picture but I'm sure you know what ice cream looks like. At least I hope you do. If you don't, we need to talk. Over ice cream. 

My hair was lazily thrown up as I had spent part of the day swimming! Ah summer. I love you. I really do. 

ps- mini anxiety update for the curious: I'm feeling much better, still not 100% but I'm noticing improvements from a month ago. I've been making a conscious self care effort and life has come to a leisurely slow for the moment which helps! 

How is your summer so far?

Lions, tigers and bears, oh my! 

Me and my sister Lisa went to the zoo a few weeks ago and I made a little video to wrap up our day! We didn't get to see everything but definitely all of the highlights. For anyone curious, this is the Toronto Zoo in Canada.

I'm currently on vacation visiting my cousins who live 6+ hours away! My sister, myself, and my two cousins Brandy and Ashley have been BFFs since diapers and now I get to watch their little ones grow. They each have a one year old boy and they're so adorable. This was the second splashpad we visited in two days! I hadn't been to one since I was little so it was really fun to be a kid again. 

It's sometimes challenging to pack outfits for a vacation but I think if you have some really great basics and know how your clothes fit you, it's easier to put together outfits while away from the comfort of your own closet. 

Let's talk about my new glasses! As a glasses/contact lens wearer, I'm always on the lookout for a great pair of glasses. I like to give my eyes a break from contact lenses as much as possible so I try to have a few pairs to choose from. Although it's not always easy because the cost of new frames and lenses and anti-scratch, anti-glare, lens thinning, UV, and the list goes on, can really add up, costing quite a chunk of hard earned dough! 

I was excited when Firmoo contacted me asking me to check out their website and choose a pair. Of course I would like a pair of new glasses but I wasn't about to share something with you that I wouldn't love and use myself. I quickly learned the prices are fabulous. Being a thrifty gal, I am always on the hunt not only for the best product but the best price and I won't settle for less. The frames cost much less than other websites I used to shop on and the quality is the same. I was also impressed with the packaging and they arrived within days of ordering. I will certainly be shopping there again soon. 

If you're on the hunt for your next great pair, get 15% off your first pair and I invite you to check out their new arrivals as well. 

Mesh Top: Value Village, $4. Leopard Top: Value Village, $6. Skirt: Part of suit, Value Village, $5. Sandals: JuJu, Little Burgundy, $45. Purse: H&M, $7. Glasses: c/o Firmoo. Necklace: Camden Market, London, $10.
