Last week I traveled to Toronto with my love to re-unite with my family. My parents arrived in Toronto from Albania a week ago to spent time with my sister and my son. Living in Canada makes it so hard to see my parents as often as I would like too due to the distance, and flying to Toronto to see them was exhausting. I miss my family, especially my sis and my son. Both of them left me to chase their dreams. My sister moved to Toronto, Port Hope to be exact for work two years ago and I seriously miss having her around. We used to live together and did everything together. She was my bestie!
Although, I do have a few close girlfriends in Vancouver, not having my sister around makes me feel sad. But that’s life, we grow older, we leave our parents, family to chase our dreams. Speaking of that, my son also left home 4 years ago to attend university back east and he usually comes home for the summer. This year he was hired to work at the University lab for the summer and I couldn’t be more proud of him!
It was a great short week to be with my family but I was quite pissed at the weather. It was a bit chilly and we had one day of rain. One day it was really warm and sunny hence I decided to wear my summer uniform, white on white 🙂 I know you’ll probably be sick of seeing me wear white but I can’t help it. It’s fresh and effortless! I choose my suit pants that I wore on my previous post, and knitwear from Backdrop Fashion, a brand based in Vancouver. I love the asymmetrical split hem and the slouchy fit. It’s very chic and can be worn with jeans, trousers, skirts or over a dress for a light layer in the summer chilli nights. My cute little bow shoes that I purchased from Zara a month ago are my favourite mules. I had a friend who told me they aren’t as comfy for her but I walked around with my family all day, and I felt very comfortable. Simple, chic and comfortable that’s one of the looks I wore on my trip.
