A Fresh Start

1

After what seems like the longest week ever, I am finally back to blogging. I am so glad that I took this little break to get my emotions in check after loosing someone so important to me. Although I am still not one hundred percent, I do feel like blogging is my salvation, and creating content is what pushes me to keep going. I want to thank all of you who sent me condolences and sweet comments last week, it truly meant so much to me. I am so thankful to be back in Toronto and looking forward to the next couple of months as the fall is my absolute favourite season. Just like the last couple weeks have been a big change, the fall brings so many transitions in so many different ways. Toronto is still sweltering but I am going to start brining in a little taste of the season into my wardrobe, home and of course here on the blog.

Le Chateau X The Blondielocks

I don’t even know where to start and where to end with this weekend. Today is my birthday and I am not in any kind of mood for celebrations.  I hate even having to write the words, but I need to let you all know that I won’t be posting any more this week as I have just lost my grampy. I am going through so many emotions right now that I feel like trying to keep up with posting is just going to add more stress onto everything.  I had posts all ready to go but I am going to save those for next week and try to start fresh.

This outfit was what I wore to my Le Chateau Meet the Blogger event on the weekend. I wanted something that was still summery but added a light transitional jacket on top. I had so much fun on Saturday meeting everyone and trying on lots of shoes! Check out my look below and some snaps from the event.  2

Highs and Lows

My Birthday is this Monday, and for the last 5 years they have always been bitter-sweet. This is because we always pack up our things and head back to Toronto the day after. I was lucky enough the to spend the entire summer at home for the last 4 years, but this year it was for only 3 weeks, and they have flown by. I spent so much time this week by the water  whether it was the ocean, pool or lake. It made me feel extremely relaxed and peaceful, but I am still not ready to leave! Have a great weekend everyone, see you Monday!
