Unhealthy Obsession with Graphic Sweaters

so, i have been back to school shopping and I have come to the realization that I have an unhealthy obsession with graphic sweaters. It all started when i bought a sweater that said “a girl should be two things, classy and fabulous- coco chanel” and now I feel like my top should always have something to say. I thought I would share my latest purchases with all of you!

I first bought the Rebecca Minkoff “Uptown Downtown” Sweater of course i needed that! Cause I go to school downtown and I should rep the city in a cute way on my top. Shopbop

SECOND I definitely need everyone to know I am a fashion student, but I can’t have it say “FASHION STUDENT” no it has to be more subtle so that only other fashion people will get it duhhhhh. so I got the “FARL w Jumper” sweater that says “Karl is my Father” from elevenparis

I am from the great city of Toronto, so essentially I needed a sweater that says “Home is Toronto” from peace-collective

These are my recent purchases, this post has a very sarcastic tone because I didn’t realize until i received all of them that I had this obsession and these were kind of my justifications as to why i needed them. I hope you are having a lovely Monday and if you have started school I hope everything is going wonderfully and if you start this week good luck!!!!

Bringing the Country to Uni

With summer ending and now that i have some free time on my hands, I have been shopping for back to school and thought I would share some accessories I have decided to bring with me back to the city. I always like to have a country vibe so I found a couple things that will fit in on the streets but still are me.

The first thing I found is this amazing tooled leather back pack by Robin West, there are a couple colours on amazon, but the website has the most selection. The price ranges around $190. link: amazon

I also found these really cool pencils off of easy called branch pencils from the user “LoriBdesigner” link: loribdesigner they are around $5 and have a cool gold accent.

This item is a little pricey but you are able to buy ink cartridges for pens so it may be realistic. Its a wood pen from a user on etsy named “chairsandpens” link: chairsandpens

There are a lot of leather pencil cases out there but the price point is pretty high for something that is in your bag all day. I found this synthetic pencil case on etsy for around $25 link:rainestylehome

I have picked to go with the Aldo Peali sandal just because i am able to try it on and it is basic, so it can go with pretty much any short this summer. Let me know what trend you are loving!
