New Friends and Fashion


I recently teamed up with my new BFF and food blogger Samantha. Sam I and have been following each other on Instagram for sometime now, so when she reached out to me about doing a shoot together I couldn't say no. Beyond excited about our little shoot, we decided to team up with Canadian clothing brand Frankie and Finnigan, as the tag lines on their shirts spoke to us.

First off, the name Frankie and Finnigan comes from companies founder and owners dog's, Frankie and Finnigan, who also happen to be rescue dogs! How cute, right?! I loved it, because my dog, Sugo is also a rescue! Sam and I are both dog people, so when we found out that the company was named after her two dogs, we just about died!

So many great tops, crew-neck sweaters, and tanks! It was hard to pick which saying I wanted but I ended up going with "coffee whiskey and you." I am a bit of a coffee person, and on cold winter nights I enjoy a glass of whiskey or rye on the rocks, so this top needed to be in my life. Clearly.  I was beyond impressed with the quality of the fabric, it washed really well and kept it's shape. Side not: I did not put it in the dryer, I refuse to put anything in the dryer.

When Sam and I booked this shoot, it was -25 outside, and snowing, so we deiced to hit up SAIT Polytechnic campus to do our shoot. This location isn't new to Sam and I, we had both had gone to school there, but at different times. It was nice getting to hangout and walk through the halls that I used to roam late at night after class. I had been taking night classes at the campus and I never really had the chance to see what it looked like during the day. I didn't realize how bright and beautiful the campus really is.

I had so much fun pairing my Frankie and Finnigan T- shirt, this simple graphic T goes with just about everything. I paired the T with my fave boyfriend ripped jeans, and for a different look I paired it with a pencil skirt.  Sam did the same with her cozy crew-neck sweater, putting it together with her go too ripped jeans and sneakers.

Keep your eyes on our Instagram accounts for more great shots of our fun little shoot!
