About 3 weeks ago I went on a quick road trip to the States with my mom to Webster, NY. It's a much smaller, quieter, you-NEED-a-car-to-get-around sort of place which is very different from where I am from. Toronto. Ahh the city life. I remember when I was really young, I would always dream of living on an animal farm. Waking up at the crack of dawn to feed the chickens. Grooming the horses. Cleaning the pigs. Now the tables have turned and I've come the accept that maybe it's not the farm that I want in my life, but the animals that I truly have a passion for. I've always felt that intense bond with animals that I don't necessarily feel with people. It's a different sort of love and compassion. Perhaps I should go more in depth in a future post.
I don't remember if I've mentioned this one to many times or perhaps none at all, but take a good look at my culottes. Take a real good look at them. Ok well congratulations you have just seen the most comfiest pants on Earth a person could ever put on. I have been living religiously in these pants this whole summer, which makes me able to 100% say that they are a summer staple. YOU NEED THESE! Long, midi, or short... I don't care. Culottes are a magical piece of fabric sewn together.
They are perfect for when your have to sit in the car for many long hours like I had to. And they are perfect when going shopping. These bad boys had the honour to come with me to the Goodwill in Webster. Let's just say I found some incredible pieces there! I also dragged my mom a long to Goodwill and t was her first time ever going. At first I thought she wouldn't enjoy thrifting as much as I do, but to my surprise she LOVED it! I helped her find lots of branded pieces like Michael Kors and Banana Republic. As for what I managed to pick out, my mom found me some Laura Petit pleather leggings!!!! What?! YES! I have been drooling over having pleather leggings for such a long time after seeing Kristina Bazan wear them. I've got a lot of cheap black leggings that do not compare to what pleather leggings feel like. Such luxurious for your legs. Such effortless chic without having to worry about camel toes or boots having out. They are the best and I do highly suggest getting your hands on a good pair. I was fortunate that my mom spotted them. Hello wardrobe game changer!
