Oh hello again, LA. After shooting for Hollister the past few days, I was able to catch up with one of my favorite LA ladies Natalia Barulich. I wore a little lace tank tucked into new high waisted skinnies for our Urth date this morning. Forever a goth, even in summer.

Summer days call for simple, laid back pieces that keep you cool, both literally and figuratively. This tee dress does just that and more. Super soft and comfy, it looks just as great on the boardwalk as it does going out to dinner. Basically an instant wardrobe classic. Paired with a great pair of sunnies and leather high tops, the tee dress makes for the ultimate, quick summer look.

Nothing beats an oversized white tee and ripped knee skinnies....except maybe an amazing gold body chain and strappy bralette underneath. Took my new body chain, compliments of Vanessa Mooney, for a spin under my new favorite tee for some delicate gold detailing. Seriously, this body chain has got me feelin SOME TYPE OF WAY. Finished the look with my new nikes and (intentional) bedhead. I don't play soccer but this look could get me onto the field in rio, right?? Totally not to creep on the players or anything like that....

Was in Vegas the past few days for a web design & development conference. Yes, you read that correctly. I am a nerd. On the drive back to LA we stopped in the middle of the desert for Alien Fresh Jerky, Greek food and a quick run around in the dirt. Although denim and leather high tops may not be the best things for 100 degree heat, I paired them with a simple lace-hemmed tank and a ton of gold and silver rings. We ran around until we started sweating...then it was back to the car with ac blasting.

It's my favorite time of the year...watermelon season. Over the past month I've single handedly eaten approximately 12 pounds. Typically I'll just chop off huge hunks, slightly frozen always preferred. I felt like getting fancy one day and violá! I give you the watermelon mint slush. Wanna party? Throw your favorite booze into the mix. Super easy and impresses like a 15 dollar resort cocktail. SURFBOARD.

Watermelon Mint Slush
2 cups of slightly frozen watermelon 
1/2 cup coconut water OR 1/3 cup coconut water + rum/vodka/etc.
Handful of crushed ice
3-4 mint leaves
Blend to desired consistency

Took a quick little trip to my hometown this past weekend. Dual citizen HOLLAAA. Aside from the fact that my camera was stolen, hence the lack of new looks, the weekend was amazing. Ran around downtown all day Saturday. Hit the Eaton Centre, bummed around Yorkville, grabbed lunch at a bomb vegan spot in Ossington then took the ferry and got an amazing (non vegan) ice cream cone at Center Island. Also was able to shoot some photos with my friend, photographer Liam Goslett, along the way (film pics coming soon!) May have gone home with blisters but they were definitely worth it. Started Sunday with brunch downtown and then bummed around St. Lawrence market before heading to my old hood, Bloor West Village, for coffee with my godmother. Headed back to Yorkville later that night for an amazing dinner and spent the rest of the night running around in search of champagne and a rooftop view. Slept for about 3 hours before jumping on my 8 am flight out of YYZ. Didn't forget my frozen cap fix at Tim Hortons. Don't worry...they're totally healthy.
