Sweaters and Vintage Denim

posted on: Friday, October 14, 2016

Happiest Friday my loves ! I am currently back home in Toronto spending time with family and friends, and am absolutely loving it :)

If you follow me on Instagram this look was highly requested, and a lot of you where did I got these fabulous boots from. Well, first and foremost it is incredibly hard finding over - the knee boots that fit my legs to perfection! These Sigerson Morrison peep toe  suede boots were made for me! if you have slender legs like mine , I would highly suggest this brand ! they come in black and a wine color as well :)

I paired these taupe colored boots with a cozy chevron sweater and threw on my favorite vintage denim skirt that I found at a warehouse sale.

Last but not least... how adorable is this new COACH bag? I mean they have really stepped up their design game with their new 1941 collection!... OBSESSED ....The patch work is perfection that gives it that edgy - yet classic feel.

Details from look below!

Have an amazing weekend everyone!

Bahamas Bimini Recap

If there's paradise on earth it's probably somewhere in the Caribbean - We definitely found ours in Bimini on the Bahamas as we flew in from Miami with a sea plane! We spent the first night of our stay at Resort World Bimini relaxed having cocktails on the rooftop, taking in the Caribbean breeze. The next day we went on a bike tour, miles along the stunning coastline of the island.

 Our third day we took a boat trip and in the midst of clear turquoise waters we dared to swim with sharks stopped at the shipwreck of the SS Sapona, a WWII ship that wrecked during a hurricane in 1926!
 I was definitely nervous at first but the peacefulness of the hidden, secluded beaches of the island will make you forget about anything else! 

Bimini has also been the perfect setting for me to work on my photography and shooting Jessi here was so much fun! it is incredibly photogenic , so with an easy subject and a perfect location , i was bound to get some stunning photos!  you can view the photos and follow my photography based Instagram on @racquelnatashaphoto

It has been an amazing trip for us and I can't wait to go back. Thanks to my girls @pamhetlinger @juliafriedmann @jessimalay @jaimiesullivan @naila and Resort World for making this trip unforgettable!
