Wednesday in Polaroids...

It's a rare thing when I get to spend an entire day doing exactly what I want to do without feeling guilty over all the things I should be doing...and that is precisely what happened yesterday, I gave myself a very much needed day off...from everything...well, almost everything...after prepping for today's lecture on the Toronto School (not so fun I assure you) in the morning, I came to the conclusion that I've had enough of theory for the day and decided to take my baby blue bike for a ride to Westboro~an adorable neighbourhood in the city, which also happens to be home to my favourite store: AMH Style (formerly HUSH)...so with my camera in tow, I ventured out to document my day from beginning to end in polaroid form (and here I simply must give a special shout-out to my good friend Justyna of Chichichic blog for showing me this cool software!) As rare as it is for me to have a day to myself, however, it's even rarer that I actually remember to bring my camera along on a regular day out on the town, so I am very happy that I remembered to do so this time around...here are some of my observations...enjoy...

morning
...and so my day begins with theory and writing and prepping for my lecture...
bag
...the necessities...
{bag; F21, make-up bag; Estee Lauder, coin purse; gifted, wallet; Marc by Marc Jacobs, gum, blackberry, journal; Moleskin, camera; Nikon D3000, lip slave & iPad}
my sweet ride
...my sweet ride...
train
...choo-choo tracks to get me and my bike from one end of town to the other...
tiger lilly
...tiger lillies ~ oh so pretty...
sign
...random observations...
house

market
...the Parkdale Market...
shoes
...AMH Style...
rings

rack

model

lunch
...lunch...magazines, fresh lemonade and a berry muffin...what could be better?
flower
...a lovely girl on the train let me take a picture of her very pretty hair...
{thank you}
city
...my adopted city...
arm
...time to go home now...
{watch; concepts, bracelets; F21, gold bangle; gifted from Egypt}

...at AMH Style after some much needed retail therapy...
(not in polaroid form)
{jumpsuit; Guess Jeans, shoes; Nampodong Market Korea, bag; F21, sunnies; Ray Ban}
DSC_7534
...my loot from AMH Style...
{bag; ZARA, top; Collective Concepts Shoes; Lola Rose}
...And there you have it, my day out on the town in polaroid form...at least mostly in polaroid form...I really should try to do this more often, it's amazing how much I take the city I live in for granted sometimes, and even though I have only been here for 2 years, I gotta say after a day like today it's starting to feel a little bit more like home...adopted home anyway...
Love K

I need your help. I spend another survey but this time with another question.
"Where do you prefer to shop? What is your favorite shopping center?"

I love how you turned all of these beautiful shots into polaroid form, it adds such a fun vintage effect that I absolutely love. Polaroids weren't really practical, but I'll never stop loving how they looked :)
