With A Little Help From My Friends

DSC_0964No, sadly, this is not my home. But it is Meaghan and Nick’s new apartment! Gorgeous, right!? (and of course my blogger brain immediately sees a nice place and thinks of all the photos I could take inside it). On Saturday morning I headed over to check out their new, beautiful digs and drink coffee with Meg. I’m sure some of you out there are like, “ya, whatever, it’s an apartment…you should see MY apartment.” But what you don’t know – unless you live in Toronto – is that finding a place like this, is not easy. The rent is either horrifying, or it gets snatched up within seconds or they just never become available because no one is giving that shit up. But, what we have found is word of mouth is the best way to find a nice place in Toronto. The good places are usually rented to a friend if the current tenant is leaving, which makes sense. When I was leaving the Everglades I had lots of people interested in taking my apartment. Good places just never get listed because there will absolutely be someone you know who wants to snatch it from you. Anyways, that’s my piece of advice for the day. Wanna find a nice place? Tell the internet/fb/instagram/whatever.

This has sort of been my go-to outfit for the last little while – a button up blouse of some sort, and a wool tartan skirt. The cold weather rolls in, and I’m always giving off 60s librarian vibes. I think I said at one point that I prefer dressing for Summer (that was probably when Winter lasted forever and I was hating everything), but I lied. I like this much, much better. Once it got cold, and I started pulling out all my Fall/Winter clothes, I sort of felt like myself again.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Mine was actually really great – one of those weekends where you get a lot accomplished, but also had time for friends and relaxation. I have the day off today, but I’ve got lots of photo taking to do, so I should get to that. Bye for now you lil’ freaks.

I’m very excited to be sharing the Mayflower Supply Co. look book today. At the wheel of this setting ship is the lovely Liz Hull. I met Liz through this very blog, and had the pleasure of meeting up with her this past summer when she was visiting Toronto. I have been anticipating this soon-to-come vintage apparel shop for awhile now. We had talked a bit of shop, and our future goals, and I knew as soon as she mentioned opening her own store it would be a great one. The site will be launching in the next coming week, and will be filled with one-of-a-kind vintage pieces from New England, with focus on heritage brands like LL Bean and Pendleton. This look book honestly has me wide eyed and drooling. If it is any indication of how the shop will be, I’m bursting with joy. There are so many pieces that just feel like they could transition seamlessly into any sort of wardrobe. Whether you’re a minimalist, or a lover of print mixing (hi! me!me!me!), there is something for everyone. Head on over to Mayflower Supply Co. to become a pioneer and be notified as soon as the shop launches. I know I have my eye on the sheer embroidered blouse (wow, what a surprise), and that velvet crimson dress is screaming holiday at me!
