Something (Tiffany) Blue



 Jeffrey Campbell heels, DIY cut-offs, H&M top, Club Monaco wrap bracelet,
 Birks bracelet, bracelet c/o LOVE COCO

It's odd but at the same time makes sense that so many bloggers are such talented creative individuals. Odd because it seems like everyone (except me...I can't operate a glue gun to save my life) has some sort of amazing art-related talent, but at the same time it's fitting that so many people who are drawn to self-expression would be creatively inclined.

My friend Carolina is one of those bloggers-meets-creative-extraordinaires. She started her online boutique LOVE COCO recently and it's been incredible how quickly people have taken to it. Then again, it's hard not to take to her elegant yet wearable creations: Tiffany blue and pearls? I'm in. Anyway, be sure to check out her Etsy shop!

I get to see mi parentias tonight, so excited! I really want to show them all the magical things in our hood: the half-naked men lounging outside of the bars at 2 p.m., the homeless guy who sits in front of the pizza place with a new lewd/disturbing sign every day and smiles at you creepily if you make the mistake of engaging in eye contact...ah, the wonders of Church and Wellesley, aka The Gay Village! Love it here.

Hope you all have an amaaaazing weekend!

  15. I have been swooning over that bracelet since you posted snapshots of it on Instagram. The design is adorable and that Tiffany blue shade couldn't suit you more perfectly! I've been thinking of picking one up myself - but in black, of course :) Love this super casual ensemble, your cutoffs are so beyond perfect, I'm always envious. Hope you have a wonderful visit with your parents, my friend! Sounds like you'll be introducing them to some characters ;)

  17. This is the kind of look I could just live in. It's the best kind of simple chic where you look totally put together without looking like you tried really hard. The bracelet is beautiful. I LOVE that Tiffany blue colour and I'm a sucker for pearls. I hope you have the best time with your parents! It's so exciting that you get to show them around your new neighbourhood and let them in on this amazing experience. They must be very proud! XO

  21. It's so true that many bloggers are creative types that hand-make beautiful items. I've had my eye on Carolina's bracelets for a while now and this combination with the Tiffany blue ribbon is gorgeous and so you! I love the simplicity of your outfit, and how you amped it up with those amazing heels. Have a wonderful weekend with your parents!

  22. This is simple, but yet so super stylish summer look and your armparty is cute.She is talented. It's absolutely true about bloggers.Don't know why..it's so. I make jewelry as well, today had my first market, in my town. Gosh,I was so excited to any purchases ladies did.I felt so happy that somebody wanted something I have made.By that I mean- every jewelry piece has his own story, it's own charm which comes with my love and good thoughts I have put creating.That's why hand made is so precious.
    Have a wonderful weekend with your parents!
