you must be true to your heart


favorite white blouse - hanna g 
wine colored skinny jeans - zco jeans 
black bag - thrifted 
black heeled lace up boots - spring 
jewellery - charlotte russe, ardenes, swarovski & mom's closet 

today i went to a going away party for one of my friends, who is moving to africa (i know.. wow, man, wow) . i wanted to pull out a safe outfit because i didn't have a lot of time to get ready so i pulled out my favorite white blouse . you know those pieces of clothing that just make you feel safe ? like something that makes you think, "i could wear this with probably anything and still feel good about myself". yeah, pretty much explains this blouse . 

 also canada has lovingly decided to grace us with random cold weather so i had to settle for long pants (but why canada? i want to enjoy the last days of my summer in short shorts and fluffy skirts..) which was, at the same time, a good thing because i've really been wanting to wear these wine colored jeans that i picked up a few weeks ago . 

i got them for twenty dollars at winners, woo hoo! i love department stores so much , almost as much as the thrift store . it's funny because my friends always ask me how i can afford having so many clothes but the truth is i just know where to look to get clothes for cheap . :) 

i'm curious, where do you guys get your clothes from ? being on blogger and lookbook always makes me question where other people get their closets from and how they afford it . it'd be nice if we could all share tips and secrets, heyyy ;) 

i almost gave up like six times while trying to draw an illustration but pulled through and i'm actually pretty proud of this one :') 

have a great week guys , xx 
love lydia lemieux 


  1. I am so in love with this post! Your cute ponytail! The crochet lace detailing on your top, the bangles, just so chic it hurts O3O Woah Africa! What a seachange! I think black and white outfits are universal so you made a great choice! We're just starting to brace the heat and the sun is starting to protrude from the skies (being a winter person, I'm melting already) haha. Wow $24 jeans?! what a score! It's all about the bargains ;) I usually get my clothes from those cheap boutiques where they sell staples you can layer real easily, we have Glassons and Sportsgirl here, those are my two stores. Other than that, I love thrifting and rummaging through Mum's wardrobe haha It'd be real awesome if we could plough through each other's wardrobes! Your illustration is sooo beautiful! I love it! I can never draw portraits.. they always end up looking like someone completely different but I see you in it :3 Wonderful shading, love!

  2. Yay for the 20 bucks
