Romwe Warm Weather Wishlist


Hello Sunshines ! 

I hope you are all doing well, today I have put together a warm weather wishlist from one of my favorite online shops, Romwe. As you can tell, I have recently been really into off the shoulder things recently, mainly because they are super cute but also because they are absolutely everywhere. Along with off the shoulder pieces, this summer I have been gravitating towards neutrals (as always) as well as anything with a nautical vibe or various florals as well. All of the pieces I picked out would work wonderfully into my existing wardrobe and some are probably going to make their way in very soon, so stay tuned !


I LOVE the crochet detailing at the top of this off the shoulder top so, so much ! It takes a basic piece and just adds a beautiful uniqueness to it. The way it just sits on the shoulders as well is just to feminine as well as sexy, it could easily be worn out at night but also on a beach during the day which is something that you guys know I look for in clothing... versatility. 


As you may have noticed, I have a thing for body suits. There is something so slimming and streamlined about them and wearing them underneath high waisted bottoms (aka my entire wardrobe) is so much easier than making sure your top is staying tucked in throughout the day. I also have a thing for lace up tops and bodysuits.., it is just such a flattering detail and adds a little bit of sexiness while making a statement. I love the stripes on this one, it is so different to any that I own. 


This off the shoulder top is absolutely gorgeous as well. I love the volume that this one has to it and the double ruffle on the arm is super flattering. I like how flowy it is too, I find that the most flattering off the shoulder tops tend to have more fabric and flow better. The color of this one is gorgeous as well, and is one of those blues that you can pair with anything. 


I love the look of this cropped top, the drape across the front makes it super flattering on the bust. I have seen Kylie Jenner wear similar tops on several occasions and they always look amazing on ! I also love the color of this one as it can easily be worn with anything and is a change from my usual black and white haha ! 


Skorts are a lifesaver. Who doesn't want the look of a skirt but not have to worry about flashing anyone or finding their own shorts to wear under !? I love the origami, cross style of this one as well as the graphic print. It is so modern feeling and would work so well in any monochromatic look... maybe with some metallic as well... I can see it already ! 


I have been looking for a dress similar to this almost for the entire summer. I wanted something that was a long maxi wrap dress in a spaghetti style top that was floral... and this hits all the marks plus has the added detailing of the double slit which makes it not only easier to walk in, but cooler for the summer as well. I love the large print on this dress as well, the flowers are gorgeous and the fact that it's black and white.... well, you know I love it already. 


This ! Have you guys seen the self portrait that is identical to this but 800% the price ! I have too, and I have been lusting over it since I last saw it and searching for a dupe. Voila ! This dress looks exactly the same and is way less money, win win ! I love the gorgeous cut out floral crochet detail... it is the daintiest most feminine dress on the planet. SO Pretty. You all need this in your life !


Now, because I love off the shoulder things so much, of course I had to add in a dress too ! I love that the front of this one is straight across and doesn't bunch until the shoulders. It adds such a fresh take on it, and the fact that it doesn't have a ruffle makes it different than a lot of the dresses I have seen. I loveeee the color of this dress as well, it is so bright and vibrant... it looks like a Spain holiday in a dress ! The fact that it is a shift style as well would make it very flattering and super easy to throw on.

Thank you so much for reading guys, I hope you all got some upcoming shopping inspiration from this like I did ! If you do happen to purchase any of these pieces send me a photo of you styling them, I would love to see ! 

Have a lovely rest of the week !

Live Every Week Like It's Shark Week


Happy Shark Week Everyone ! 

It's almost over now, one more day *sigh*. As I'm sure those of you who know me in person or have been following my blog for a while would have guessed, it is extremely necessary for me to do a Shark Week outfit post. I have been repping sharks all week long in my outfit choices and this is one of them I wanted to share with you ! I love sharks more than most things, and so shark week is practically a holiday for me... literally, I am watching "Shark Bait" while writing this ( if you are watching shark week and know what I'm talking about I love you so much ). My mom even got me a present for Shark Week... it's a serious deal. 

 I am extremely fascinated by sharks, they are such strong, majestic creatures that are not just crazed eating machines that the media and entertainment industry has made them out to be. They are dangerous obviously, being such large apex predators but they don't eat humans on purpose, it is just a case of mistaken identity. You are taking a calculated risk going into their territory and nine times out of ten even if there is a shark around it won't be interested in you. So people are extremely scared of sharks for no reason ( more people die from being struck by lightning than getting attacked ) add that to the fining industry, long line fishing and people generally not caring about their welfare and you have got a species of animal that is slowly going extinct. Thankfully in the past few years with the help of shark week, documentaries et. people have come to realize that we have to protect these gorgeous animals in order for the entire ocean to sustain itself. One day I hope to be able to help the conservation of sharks, I would love to work on a tagging or research boat so much, but for now I just share knowledge where I can and hope that more people will hop on board the shark train.



Now let's talk about the outfit ! Of course I had to include one of my pieces of shark apparel into the look (which is sadly lacking and I need to add to my collection) the star this time being this gorgeous t-shirt my mom got for me from Ripley's Aquarium in Myrtle Beach. Now traditionally these type of shirts aren't deemed very fashionable, the water-effect background especially make these t-shirts something generally worn by grandparents or found in flea markets. I absolutely love it though of course because it has sharks on it and I think that styled correctly, it turns from granny chic to just a cool graphic tee. So, to keep things modern and fresh I decided to roll up the sleeves on my t-shirt and tuck it into this denim button up skirt that I am obsessed with which you may remember from the last post I did. Button up denim skirts have been a trend for the past few seasons along with lace up shoes and espadrilles. I happen to be wearing a combination of all these things here which helps to keep everything balanced.



I wanted to keep the overall look pretty casual and simple so that the star of the show could of course be the shark tee. It is Shark Week after all, and letting them shine is what this is all about. I didn't accessorize very much for that reason and just topped the look off with my everyday Dillon bag so that it wasn't too fussy and walking around the park would be easy and comfortable.



For the photos, of course we went to my number one photo spot ( mainly because it is 5 minutes away from my moms house ) High Park, but this time focusing on taking photos by water to represent the sharks lovely habitat ( even though they don't live anywhere near Toronto ). My first choice was by the fountains because as you can see from the photo 2 above this one, it turned out super cool with the fountain spray in the background, but the lighting was horrible and so we only took a few there. I wanted to actually shoot these at Ripley's Aquarium originally because, sharks duh, but we didn't have time to go there so this did just fine !

There you go ! Here is one of my outfits I put together for Shark Week ! I put together another one but didn't end up taking photos the day I wore it, so even though Shark Week will be over tomorrow if you would still like to see that one let me know and I will take some photos in it ! I hope you all enjoyed Shark Week as much as I did, it was a great one this year and although I am sad I have to wait until next year, some of the discoveries they made this year are sure to make next year super awesome as well ! Hopefully I will be able to swim with sharks at some point this year, I am crossing my fingers, and if it ever comes to fruition I will definitely keep you guys posted ! For now though, let us all live every week like it's Shark Week and help save the most majestic creatures of deep. 

Thank you so much for reading <3

Sakura Hanami



Hello my beauties ! 

I hope you are all doing well ! My life has unfortunately still been extremely busy lately and I am finding it hard to fit blogging into my schedule but I am honestly trying my best ! I have a few things planned that should be coming up very soon (I have already taken photos for them so the hard part is out of the way haha) and so we should hopefully be back to our regular scheduled blog posts ! 

Today I want to share with you some photos that were probably taken about a month ago now. It was during May when all of the Cherry Blossom trees were in full bloom in Toronto ! They are such gorgeous trees but unfortunately, most years I never get the time to actually go out looking for them. This year because I was staying at my moms for the week I actually got the chance to see them in High Park, which apparently is one of the best destinations to see them because not only are there quite a few around but everyone and their mother, brother, sister and uncle were gathered around the trees. I actually went to try to take photos with the trees twice, the first time not working out because it was way too crowded. The second time I went right before sunset with my mom and it was quite enough that I was able to get some shots with these gorgeous trees. 



There is just something so magical about the gorgeous pink bunches of flowers that makes them such a popular attraction. It feels like you are taken to an exotic location with them all around you and honestly the joy I felt looking at them is just overwhelming. The day before these photos were taken, I had taken a little trip to the mall specifically to go into Topshop in hopes to get a few new things. It is one of my favorite stores as you have probably been able to tell by reading my blog and I was of course able to find a few things that my wardrobe desperately needed ! 



Both this top and skirt are two of the things I found during this little shopping trip, each piece exactly what I was looking for; a more casual bodysuit that could be worn under anything and a denim button up skirt because I still hadn't owned one previous to this one here. I love them both so much, and have gotten so much wear out of them already as well ! The wrap style cut of the bodysuit is super flattering and comfortable, and because it is black it makes it a lot more versatile and great for night time as well. I have been loving bodysuits lately as I'm sure you all have noticed, they are so easy to wear underneath high waisted pieces aka. my entire wardrobe. I paired the body with this denim skirt I picked up as well, which I thought looked so darling together, it's just such an easy casual look to wear. 


Speaking of this denim skirt, I am in love with the detail on this one ! It is an A-line skirt which in themselves are usually always flattering but if you look at the photo above you can see the stitching that goes into a v shape right below the waistline which helps slim the hips and create a streamlined look. Even though the buttons sometimes create little bulges, the stitching helps to slim and balance it out so overall it is just the most perfect denim skirt I have come across.








What I love about this look is that it is appropriate for almost any daytime occasion and could be worn so many different ways with the two pieces being the base. I wanted to keep the whole look pretty casual overall so instead of adding some gorgeous heels, more accessories and a clutch I just went for some very low heeled beige ankle booties and my everyday Michael Kors Dillon to keep things minimal and easy. On the other hand, before heading out to see these lovely trees my mom and I headed to run a few errands and instead of the booties I was wearing running shoes and my hair was up in a ponytail and it made for a very cool effortless look. I can't wait to pair them with other pieces for you guys in the future as well so you can really see how versatile they really are !

If you guys ever get a chance to head over to High Park to see the Cherry Trees Blossoming I highly recommend it, I have tried to explain how beautiful  they are in the words above but I definitely don't do them justice and neither do the photos. I think they are probably all fallen off now which is such a shame, but there is always next year ! There will be a few more posts coming very soon (quite possibly one tomorrow or Saturday)  so make sure to check back very soon ! One may have to do with something happening on the 26th of June... if you know me and you know what it is comment below because that would be hilarious haha ! So until then, thank you so much for reading and I hope you all have wonderful Fridays !

Pop Of Pink


Hello again my favorite people ! 

I am so sorry I have been MIA once again for like two weeks but the beginning of summer has just been absolutely nuts ! I have been on an impromptu trip to stay at my moms for about a week without a computer, been helping Jay almost everyday with his new business venture and we also planted an entire vegetable garden ! On top of doing those things we also got my car on the road and I have been working as well, so it has just been crazy. Today though, I said enough is enough and took some time off to just sit here and write because I feel so lost without it ! Writing to you guys here on the blog is just such a great outlet to get my thoughts out, without it I feel all bottled up inside. Sure I tell all of my friends and family the things that are on my mind but there is something special about writing them down that just lets these things go, like they are flowing from my fingertips. 

For example, yesterday I drove on the road for the first time ! I know your thinking... " um, aren't you 24" yes, yes I am and I have never learnt how to drive. It's not that I was scared at all, I'm really not, it's just that I was trying to save up money to go to driving school for so long that I wasn't even trying to drive because " I needed lessons ". I have realized now though that will probably never happen so I'm just going to learn on my own. It is so much easier than I thought. I had driven in parking lots a few times to get a hang of it but thought that driving on the road would be so much harder... it's really not, it's actually easier as I'm sure a lot of you know. As this was only my first time I am obviously not a pro but I am no longer worried about going on the road and I feel like in no time I will be able to do everything just fine. See, already I'm ranting, this is what happens when I don't write for a long time ! I will stop now though so we can get into the outfit ! 



A few weeks back when Jay was going for his first interview at this new job I tagged along just for a little trip but also wanted to shoot some quick photos on the way home of my outfit because I really liked what I was wearing. I didn't know exactly where I wanted to shoot and so the plan was to just drive until I saw a spot and then we would stop and take the photos. When I had almost lost hope because we were almost out of town, I saw this cute little park, perfect for photos with it's sprawling green grass and huge willow trees. I pointed to it and said "there!" about two seconds before the turn and from there we drove around the street to the park and got out to shoot these photos. 



When I got dressed that morning, I picked out this outfit but with a different black skirt and then realized that it was very, very similar to this look I had shot a little while ago. I love the combo of this vest, turtleneck and the high boots so much that I still wanted to wear all of these pieces together but I didn't want the look to be exactly the same. To change it up a little and add a more spring vibe to it, I opted to add a pop of pink with this beautiful skirt I got recently from Zara. You may notice that it looks very similar to the jacket I was wearing in my birthday post and that is because I got them at the same time for my birthday as a set ! I have yet to wear them together as I am trying to pair them with the perfect top and accessories but either way both pieces are gorgeous on their own. If you know me, you know how obsessed with pink I am and I have to say this shade is my absolutely favorite by far. Wearing this skirt or the coat instantly makes me feel like Barbie and just so girly and confident... if  I had to pick a power color I would choose this one... Elle Woods anyone ?


The other thing I did to make this look more spring appropriate was opt for bare legs instead of tights to show of the little bit of tan that I had from sitting in the car haha. I also switched up my purse from my everyday Michael Kors Dillon to my simple black clutch to keep the look very minimal and simplistic. It was still a little chilly at this point in time so this was the perfect look for the day, it is now VERY hot in Canada so the next time you see this skirt it will be in a totally new way ! I can't wait to style it for you guys !

Thank you so much to all of you who are so lovely and supportive even though I go through times of not posting for a few weeks ! I promise it is never on purpose and I always want to create the best content for you that I can, quality over quantity right ! I would never just throw something together in a night just to get things out because that is not who I am ! I want to really love the outfit I am wearing, how the photos turned out or even information I am putting out for you guys. Thank you for being so amazing and thank you for putting up with my rants haha. I love you guys !

Leather & Denim


Hello gorgeous people ! 

I hope you are all doing well ! Today I am sharing with you a few of the photos from the day before my birthday, I know it's been almost a month but there has just been no time to get these up ! On this day, my cousin and I went to the local park I frequent often to take blog photos ( which you have seen many times before ). We went there specifically to take some photos and just a have a nice walk around the park day. It was such a lovely day spent with her as we have so much fun together so we can literally be doing anything and it will be fun, this was no exception. 



I wanted to wear something that wouldn't be too hot or cold, would be comfortable for moseying around the park and would of course also be photographable. I went for one of my favorite combos, a cropped top, skater skirt, comfy booties, a leather jacket and to add a little interest to the look paired it with a denim shirt wrapped around my waist. It's funny how one simple piece can change a look so much, without the denim shirt, this look would be completely monochromatic and very simple, still something I would wear but a little boring. I love to play around with pieces and work them into looks in fun ways to change things up, it is really what makes fashion so much fun I think. 



This look was perfectly comfortable for the day, I didn't have any complaints. My cousin was a little reluctant to go to the park because she isn't as comfortable in front of a camera and with people around... no way ! I assured her that this park is always quiet and I hardly ever see anyone, which is why it is one of my favorite places to come. I still don't understand why the park is so quiet but I'll take it ! It is great to have default places to take outfit photos because sometimes it is hard to find good spots !

You all leave such kind words and are so supportive and amazing that I just feel like I want to give something back to you. Now I wish I could send something to each and every one of you because you all deserve it but my bank account will not allow that, so I decided to pick out something that I thought you guys would like instead !

Staying true to my blog and what content I share with you guys, I wanted to give you something fashion related because of course that is what I love the most. While thinking about it for a little while I decided to go with a pair of Quay Australia Sunglasses because they are amazing quality and have been seen everywhere recently so most of you will have heard of them. Once I decided on what to get, it was time to figure out what style.While placing this order I also got myself a pair of a more "out there" style and was going to get the same for the person who wins so we could be twins. I thought about it a bit more and decided I wanted this to appeal to the vast majority of you and suit everyone so I went with the Maiden, which are your standard matte black round cat eye sunglasses. 
They are a little oversized but not too big and generally a gorgeous pair of sunglasses ( I wanted to keep them myself when they got here in the mail but of course, refrained myself ) that I think would suit almost anyone ! 



So how you win ?
