There’s a beautiful old willow tree on the back road of our neighbourhood where I like to go for photoshoots. I grew up in Willowdale, a suburb of Toronto, where the majestic weeping willows grow. I love how they are one of the first to leaf out in the springtime and the last to lose their leaves when autumn comes.
I’ve been taking some things to secondhand shops: great to support charities and employ people as well as keeping things out of landfills. Naturally, I took a look around before leaving the store because you never know what you’ll find.
I spotted this olive green scarf with small silver studs. I bought an olive green linen jacket about 15 years ago but didn’t know it was the exact same shade. Greens can be tricky because there are so many different hues.
I love my white jeans any time of year and especially after Labour Day! I often add a pop of colour, in this case, olive green. This cropped jacket is cool and lightweight. Perfect for cool summer nights or pleasant autumn days.
The purse was also a recent purchase in a thrift shop, handmade with a Paris design, and I have another SLOW FASHION outfit.
