Back in my old stomping ground of Queen St West. It’s definitely one of my favourite streets in Toronto for whiling away a Saturday. Dotted with independent boutiques, quirky restaurants, cool little coffee spots and not forgetting the leafy green Trinity Bellwoods Park. On this particular Saturday the park was hosting a vintage market. We spent a fine hour or two browsing clothing racks, bargain bins and lot’s of unique industrial furniture finds. Continue reading
There’s something about a chunky knit that reassures you, winter’s not all that bad. The Montpellier, is one such knit. A superhero amongst sweaters. Continue reading
Finally I’m back on the blog after an unplanned hiatus. The reason being myself and my husband have made the big move back to Toronto – who knew moving country would be so time consuming?? (tongue firmly in cheek!).
The last year at home in Ireland has been an absolute blast. Catching up with family and friends, not forgetting all the road trips. When we left Canada last year we had a mission to visit some of Ireland’s towns and sites that we hadn’t yet visited. The Giant’s Causeway and Croagh Patrick being two of the highlights. I’ve stacks of photos to share on the blog, so stay tuned!
These photos are the last outfit photos taken at home in Ireland. Busy with the move I didn’t get a chance to share. Back in basics, it’s fair to say a colour palette of greys and blacks are still a favourite of mine. I picked up the leather look skirt in Zara, the asymmetrical zip detailing was the clincher for me. Also I scored the AllSaints peep toe boots at Kildare Village – delighted with my last buy in Ireland (if you ever make the trip to Ireland, a stop at Kildare Village is a must for shopping!).

Sunday brunch and I ditched my black skinny jeans in favour of my Yellow Alice and Olivia mini skirt – can you tell I’m excited for Spring’s arrival! Whilst the temperature still calls for layers and tights, wearing a skirt somehow feels one step closer to, dare I say it….Summer!
Since I’ve moved back home most Sundays are spent outdoors exploring Ireland. These photos were taken in the gorgeous Co. Wicklow. If you look closely, you can see the snow covered mountains in the background. After we took these shots and I changed outfits, we went for a hike and it was well worth the effort! The view of the Wicklow Gap on the way up is simply stunning, every where you look is picture perfect. And the real treat was when we reached the snow covered summit. It was like we had traveled to a whole other country, in fact it reminded me of Canada but at much more friendly temperature! You can catch more photos on Instagram and follow the tag #livingeasydiscoversireland to keep up with all my adventures.

I finally bought the pair of Rag and Bone high waisted black skinnies I had been procrastinating over for weeks. They are stretch denim so I went one size down and they fit perfect. Well almost perfect, sadly I don’t have the ‘legs for days‘ like Miranda Kerr but it’s nothing that a little tuck can’t sort. Paired with my trusty chambray shirt, this denim on denim look is a bit 90’s – but I’m all for nostalgia!
