We’ve been pretty lucky here in Toronto in terms of winter weather. It’s the mildest winter I can remember! On one of the less-mild days I took a trip to the beach (funny how that happens). While Hazel played in the waves I was enamored with the muted colour palette. The rocks also had a slight pink tinge, which perfectly matches the hues I am currently obsessed with (soft pinks, mints, and blues). If you look closely you can see blankets of ice covering the rocks nearest the water. They look almost like perfectly placed fondant.
I got a new pair of glasses this past weekend! Very happy to have something new, my old ones have been around for about 3 years now. I’m so happy with the rounded shape and warm tortoiseshell.

I don’t know about you, but right around this time I get really antsy for picnicking. The weather is beautiful, the sun is shining, the grass is green, and hopefully there isn’t a cloud in the sky. Now I enjoy my fair share of grassy-hill picnicking, though since I live right by the beach, it’s a wonderful time to haul your barbeque and blanket to the sand and enjoy a picnic on the beach. And if you’re as pale as I am, make sure you’ve brought enough sun protection!
Clothes to Wear to a Summer Beach Picnic
1. sun hat 2. bathing suit 3. sunglasses 4. sandals 5. beach towel
6. Instax camera 7. floral shorts 8. organic sunscreen
Since it’s summer time, don’t be afraid to break out the florals and mix and match. It might seem a little daunting, but summer is all about having fun. And instead of using your boring old phone to capture the loveliness of the day, why not opt for a neat retro instant camera? They may not be as instant as instagram, but they’re more unique and you can take the tiny photos home with you.
