I’m back in Montreal and it feels super good. I needed this and this was the right moment for hubs and I to take the time to honeymoon across Atlantic Canada. Since hubby isn’t Canadian, I had to work on sponsoring him and we got the papers in time..and since the wedding was a little too costly for us, we decided to wait and save up before we went to honeymoon anywhere. I found that it was super perfect to honeymoon across Atlantic Canada…I know that it’s not like a top hot spot destination….especially for a honeymoon….but for us, it’s meaningful. I wanted to show my husband where I came from and have him take the time to see my world and open up his horizons to different ideas and views. He was excited and was ready to see a whole new world. Since we only have 3 weeks to see loads of places…we decided to start with Montreal first. We spent the time to walk around downtown and shop a little….and since I haven’t worn vintage in a while, I thought, now was the perfect time to do so…layering is a must, especially that it’s a little more chilly for me now since moving to Jericho.
I was super happy with my outfit and here’s how it came out:
WHAT I WORE:
JACKET: Danier leather Ξ TOP: Zara (thrifted) Ξ SKIRT: 80s vintage Ξ BOOTS: Call it Spring Ξ BAG: thrifted Ξ SUNNIES: Gucci Ξ EARRINGS: Vintage Ξ NECKLACE: Antique
I was super excited when I saw mom stocking up some vintage items for me…the minute I landed and got home, she was thrilled to show me what she got and those were some of the items she has purchased over the past weeks. I love that I share this passion with mom…I know I was a little difficult when I was younger and always wanted brand new clothes…but since growing up and working in the fashion industry, I came to realize that older things have more value and that thrifted items are just as cool as brand new items depending on how you decided to style them. Thrifting has become a huge hobby for me…I truly do enjoy it…the process is sometimes annoying for me, but the end result is awesome!
This skirt is a dream! Too bad it’s a little too big for me and I am selling it on my Etsy store soon…but it’s the perfect transitional skirt…it’s midi length and so, you still have that summer feel but it’s lined which gives you the warmth you need. I haven’t worn a leather jacket in a while and I completely forgot how much of a badass I feel in one! UGHHHHH, leather gives me all kinds of feels!
This is my first outfit since I’m back home and I cannot wait to share more fall outfits and also more details of my honeymoon.
