Boy, do I have a treat for you today! My
boyfriend photographer is amazing. Truly, a patient and wonderful person, without whom this blog would suffer. And though he is talented, he is learning. Just like me! We are both young grasshoppers in need of guidance – photography guidance, not Kung Fu guidance.
Luckily for me, my friend Justine is a photography queen! Justine is beautiful, hilarious, whip-smart, and her winged eyeliner is so sharp it’s #blessed. I have never used that colloquialism before, and never will again, but her wings can be described no other way.
She was kind enough to do a little photoshoot with me this past weekend. The weather was gorgeous, the light was perfect (or perhaps she just made it so), and I came away with SO many photos to choose from! Teach us your ways, Justine!! I don’t believe you learned it all from YouTube!! Check out some of her gorgeous photos, here.
Another lovely person who had a hand in putting this outfit together, is my fellow Toronto fashion blogger: Sarah of Stella and the City. I love the Toronto blogging community! Everyone is so kind, and supportive. Sarah was sweet enough to mail me this awesome clutch, after I complimented the same one she was wearing in a gorgeous outfit! How generous is that? She styled hers way better than I ever could – her fashion sense is ON POINT. Check out her instagram and follow her 🙂
And finally, some outfit details: I love the (faux) leather sleeves on this blazer! It’s such a fun touch, and makes this blazer feel more like outerwear. I added a cashmere scarf for warmth, not that I needed it this weekend, but it was a good test drive. My favourite part of this outfit? Probably a toss up between the fabulous earrings or the “Lip Maestro” by Giorgi Armani. Wowza! This red was fun to wear. I have very dry lips, and was wary of trying out a liquid lipstick. However, this isn’t a “matte” formula, and I found it was actually very hydrating and didn’t slip around at all. It was like red velvet. Winner.
Happy Monday xo
