Sagrada Familia

The Sagrada Familia is so iconic to Barcelona. When I told friends and family I'd be visiting the city for several days, they all reminisced about Gaudi's most famous, unfinished work. On our second-last day in Barcelona, we visited the Sagrada Familia Basilica, to tour the grounds and view the inside. sagrada familia barcelona (15 of 15) sagrada familia barcelona (8 of 15) sagrada familia barcelona (2 of 15) sagrada familia barcelona (11 of 15) I wasn't sure about the dress code to visit the church, while it's still technically a construction site and unfinished, I didn't want to be turned away at the door. However, I noticed many guests wearing tank tops and shorts, so they do not enforce any dress codes. I still wanted to be respectful for a place of worship, so I wore a midi-length seersucker skirt from Zara (old, similar style available here) that I also wore here, a white, a tassle necklace from Kendra Scott, an off-the-shoulder top from She In, lace up sandals from Sam Edelman, and a Cult Gaia small Ark Bag.

Graduating from Law School

graduating from law school (5 of 9) graduating from law school (7 of 9) graduating from law school (8 of 9) Today, I am graduating from law school at the University of Ottawa. The past few years have led up to this, and by the end of the day I will be a Juris Doctor. I would be lying if I said the past three years went by "quickly," because frankly, it was a long journey. Prior to law school, I spent a year freelancing, being "funemployed" and studying for the LSAT. I got into the University of Ottawa's English Common Law program and jumped immediately at the opportunity. Law school definitely went beyond my expectations and challenged me in every way. Every night, staying up till 6 a.m. writing a memo or factum, or not sleeping at all to put together a summary. Every exam, every lecture (I rarely skipped class, save for the flu last year and getting stuck in an ice storm in New Jersey after New York Fashion Week), every day at the clinic... it all led up to this.

Swish Swish

Katy Perry Shoes are becoming a new favourite in my closet. In the past few weeks I've added two pairs into my collection, including these incredible Rubik's cube shoes available in store at DSW Canada. I love how they're a twist on a classic black peep-toe pump. I paired them with equally as quirky ruffle hem pants from Zara and a pleated hem t-shirt from J. Crew. katy perry shoes (4 of 5) katy perry shoes (1 of 5)katy perry shoes (5 of 5) I wanted to keep the rest of my outfit simple to let these Katy Perry shoes shine! The ruffle hem of the pants draws your eye down to your feet, which allows the multicoloured heel be the focal point of my outfit. I added some more punch to this look with a red Alexander Wang Prisma Emile bag, and a pair of red Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses from Smart Buy Glasses (save 10% off with code NATALIEAST10).  These red rose sunglasses are so pretty and I love the red roses and lace detail. The cat-eye frame is very vintage and fits in with Katy Perry's colourful, pin-up style perfectly.
