After a long summer away, I’m finally back in Toronto, and boy does it feel good to be back home. There is truly nothing like the feeling of coming home to one’s own apartment, friends, and of course, closet, after living out of a suitcase for 3 weeks. Although I’ve been back for 2 nights now, I still haven’t gotten around to unpacking due to being busy playing catch up after being away for so long. I have a newfound respect for bloggers who are constantly on the go, seriously, how do they keep up with mail?!

These pictures were taken in an alleyway my brother and I found in Chinatown while in Singapore. While I usually shy away from colourful backdrops, I couldn’t help but fall head over heals for the cute little buildings and spiral staircase at this location. Afterwards we proceeded to do what we do best: stuff ourselves with food and coffee.

    Whenever I get back from a travel, the only things I unpack right away are those that need to be washed, the rest will probably stay there for a week haha. I’m a disaster.
    That dress is so beautiful!

    Love this dress and the hat is so cute! The backdrop is gorgeous too – the coloured buildings and the spiral staircase are so pretty!
    The food and coffee seem the perfect follow -up to the photoshoot!
    I know what you mean about unpacking though – the packing to go part is much more fun!

    The ruffles add such a nice touch to the dress! I’m bad at unpacking after traveling as well. Sometimes it takes me days to get everything put away.

    I love your neutral outfit against the bright backdrop, it’s really the perfect way to showcase it! Welcome home, I can definitely relate to how amazing it feels to finally be back home surrounded by everything you’re familiar with!
