That 80s sweater….

We visited Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue today and it was the perfect weather to walk along the river…it wasn’t too cold nor too hot. Hubs and I walked around the city and enjoyed the local market area where there was a bazaar supporting local farmers and small businesses . We ate some handmade gelato and it was amazing! The sun was bright and shining and the bees and butterflies were out to play.

The foliage was remarkable and there still loads of green left in the scenery. The air smelt nice and the breeze was just super yummy! There were loads of people walking around and enjoying family time. There were even people taking advantage of the mild weather to ride their boats (perhaps) one last time before winter.

Hubs and I also took the time to go to Nova (the vintage/thrift shop) in Sainte-Anne…and I ended up buying a few items and I cannot wait to share them soon..EEEKK!!!

Can’t make this post without also sharing my outfit of the day…and I wore vintage! I got this sweater a few winters ago..it’s a beautiful hand knit sweater made in Hong Kong. It’s honestly very heavy and you can see that it is worked meticulously. It’s a rare and wonderful piece to own. I have posted it for sale for the moment on my Etsy page (for those interested).

WHAT I WORE:

TOP: Vintage Nannell sweater ♦ PANTS: Thrifted Buffolo (straight leg cut) ♦ BELT: Calvin Klein ♦ SHOES: Converse ♦ BAG: Cole Haan ♦ SUNGLASSES: Forever 21

I’ve been enjoying wearing straight leg jeans/looser jeans…they’re much more comfortable and I feel like I have abused the skinnies a little bit too much. The ones I am wearing in this blog are thrifted…and they were longer and so I cut them and let the bottom hem frayed. DIYing is a super easy way to give the illusion of having loads of items in your closet…but you’re just really pimping what you got. I have been into this at the moment..I haven’t really actually shopped in real store or malls in a while..I would say a good 5 months. Thrifting has been taking a lot of my time lately and revamping my clothes even more. Why not make your things unique and leave your own touch. It really doesn’t cost much.

I will share some of my DIY items that I worked on lately in up coming posts…right now I am loving documenting about our travels and discoveries.

I have been pimping loads of my denim items and some items I have had for ages…so I figured why not make them new again. You’ll see them soon!!!
