Apartment- Young The Giant

For those of you not living in your local Ikea store's, that means Hi in Sweden. Aren't you glad I learnt something while stocking up the new apartment? Apparently I have mad skills- I assembled the bookcase behind me and learned a new language, sure... it's only one word, but if I ever go to Sweden I'll at least be friendly!
Also, I'm still crushing on long skirts, especially when they're my mum's from 30+ years ago. Since moving to Vancouver I'd been living out of a suitcase, hunting down a place that suited me enough to call home. Well I finally found a new little apartment that suits me quite nicely and my parent's were sweet enough to drive out my furniture. I've spent the past week moving, unpacking and having it feel like Christmas when stumbling on forgotten treasures. Such as this skirt. My mum wore it when she was my age and was a tanned, beach goddess... sadly I'm quite a few shades lighter than her, but the skirt still makes me feel all '70's and beachy. 
Skirt- Vintage, Stripe Shirt- H&M, White Wedge Sandals- Aldo, Turquoise Necklace- Gift, Wrap Bracelet- Club Monaco
Now guys, I hate to get all serious on you, but I have some shocking findings to share. It may be hard to hear, so you might want to sit down- I'll wait....
Ok. After a gruelling trial the results are in.
 It's a scientific fact that people (me) go a little crazy without internet for 10 days. You don't believe me, do you? Well, below is the proof. 
Scary, right!? 
Thankfully this girl's new apartment was brought into the current century yesterday morning, and she couldn't be happier! Here's to more posts, surfing, and Animals Talking with British Accents Youtube Videos. Yay!


  1. Yay, the new apartment looks lovely!! And wow, you assembled the bookshelf! I have yet to try this feat... I usually end up having a glass of red, while someone puts it together for me. I know, so bad, haha.

    And I'm loving this outfit, great pattern mixing going on... and hello, adorable wedges!! Hope your weekend is a fab and internet happy one. xx veronika

  4. Yay for new apartments, new furnishings & forgotten treasures!! I was hoping this was going to be an apartment tour, so uh, you should get on that! ;) But the bookshelf looks lovely!! Happy you found a place to call home! xo.

  6. Great minds clearly think alike- we have the same bookshelf (although I admit I was not a whiz at putting it togther!) You look so lovely in your new space, the skirt you salvaged from your mom is one of a kind and lovely, especially with those white strappy sandals :) Hope you're having a wonderful Saturday!

  7. I want to invite you to check out my fashion blog, if you like ;)

  12. Such a wonderful outfit! And the apartment looks lovely! It reminds me of Carrie's (SATC). Maybe it the colour? Your outfit is also like something she'd wear, so maybe its that!
