Boxing Day Shopping

Oh Boxing Day, Canada's Black Friday. I'm the biggest sucker for sales, and needless to say, I spent a ton in the past two days. I purchases these Rag & Bone jeans for $100 off during a pre-boxing day sale, and I might have a little (very expensive) something else to show off in two weeks. 
A basic white tee goes perfectly with distressed denim, and even though it's not my usual look, it's a go-to when I'm shopping amongst hoards of people. T-shirt, jeans, a small purse, and a cute pair of heels (short please!) are the perfect shopping outfit. A smaller purse is unobtrusive and won't get caught on anything (or bang against other shoppers (as a Canadian I worry about this!)), while shorter heels lets me walk swiftly to steal what others want!

Aritzia carries their exclusive brand Wilfred Free, which makes my all time favourite v-neck tees. They're extremely soft, drape perfectly, and wear well. Whenever there's a sale, I stock up. Which really means I just buy one in a new colour (or shade). Because obviously I don't have enough white or grey tees in my life.

On another note, my parents got me the best Christmas gift every. Well, best two. A new Canon 50mm f1.8 lens, and let me tell you, I've been able to get some bokehliscious backgrounds with it. I'm still having troubles getting it to focus on my entire body using a low enough aperture for the bokeh effect, but I swear I'll be aiming for better pictures in the new year. The other gift I've been loving is the book, How to be Parisian Wherever You Are. I highly recommend it, as it's witty, charming, not necessarily practical (don't answer his calls but send gushing texts? Why?) and easy to read. Plus, it describes my own little paradoxes so well. Next time someone complains about my spending money on lingerie no one will ever see, or being absolutely astonished when I'm dumped, I'm just going to tell them I'm a true Parisian. It says so in the book! But seriously, these girls did an amazing time writing this, and I highly suggest you take a look. There's an excerpt on Vogue.
