Let me know what your favourite item from the mini haul was and/or what you're looking forward to this holiday season!
Happy Thursday everyone! When it comes to writing, it's usually very natural for me and I never really need to think of what to say for my blog posts. With that being said, the past few posts were written 2-3 weeks in advance of the actual post date so it feels like forever since I've written anything. Anyways, today's outfit post is brought to you by Neon, an independent retailer that just opened a location in Toronto!
I was contacted by Neon to get a tour of the store and to be honest, I was thinking "What could they possibly show me besides the clothing?" I've never heard of the retailer and since it recently opened, it's not like I've come across it while walking along Queen St. Also, when they sent me a bit of info about themselves, it told me about brands that you've probably heard of or know what to expect when you hear of them; like VANS, Converse, Timberlands, Levi's, etc.
When I walked into the store, I realized it was much bigger than expected. A lot of stores on Queen St. are small boutiques so seeing the huge variety they offered was great. Not only do they have well-known brands like the ones I mentioned before but they also sell up and coming brands that you probably never even heard of. They tend to find inspiration from European and Asian countries when they come across it more than usual and then do their research on it.
Even though they sell well-known brands you can get at other places like Levi jeans at an actual Levi's store or Timberlands at any shoe store, other places don't offer the wide selection they do. For instance, the typical Jansport backpack comes in a bunch of colours but I had no idea they had unique prints.
Along with this outfit post, I decided to make a short video on my little shopping trip because I ended up spending so much time in the store.
The best part about Neon is that they sell EVERYTHING you see. From door knobs and lighting, to the furniture, everything has a price tag. It's one of those stores that new products are constantly coming in so you really need to grab it as soon as you can. As for clothing preferences, I would say that it's more towards street style kind of merchandise but if you're open minded with your outfits then you should definitely check it out.
Hope you enjoyed today's post! Are there any unique kinds of stores where you live? I also have a dressy outfit idea planned featuring this sweater so if you want to see that soon, be sure to let me know in the comments :) Sidenote: I have such Bailee Madison vibes with this sweater (from her Nylon Espanol photoshoot) and that makes me happy because she's bae.

Literally starstruck over this moment - not only did I meet one of my biggest fashion inspirations but she complimented my outfit (which is a huge deal coming from her!) I couldn't not post the reaction photo to all of that 🙈💕 PS: I may be calm writing this but I was fangirling so hard last night. Also, shoutout to @holtrenfrew for keeping me fed and hydrated (still thinking of those macarons)A photo posted by Adrienne Naval (@aanaval) on

If you understand how I got the blog title, then I absolutely love you. For this style steal, my friend Alexandra gave me the idea of using the looks in Sabrina Carpenter's On Purpose music video. I'm obsessed with her music and especially this song; it's definitely a favourite of mine. I also love how beautifully the music video was filmed.
Unlike my previous style steal/style muse posts, I decided to take photos of inspired outfits mainly using clothes I already owned. I could've easily bought spot on pieces that Sabrina wore but I decided to tailor it to my own style so you could see how I emulate her style without straying from my own. Also, I only ended up doing 2/3 outfits from the video) :)
Here's the music video if you'd like to watch it!
Hope you enjoyed today's post! I think it will be one of the last "fall fashion" post of mine before I start with fall to winter transition posts. Leave a comment down below telling me what winter trends you're looking forward to :)
