Black (Faux) Leather Skirt & Checkered Vans

 Nothing says summer in Toronto like a trip to the Island. 
Every year, my work hosts a family picnic and we all hop on a boat and head over for a casual day in the sun. You can't tell from the photos but it had rained the day before (see frizzy hair!lol) so I opted for a water resistant skirt. This was a perfect choice because I was free to sit on the grass when all of the blankets were full and toss around a couple of water balloon. Since the Island has a perfect view of my great city's skyline, I had to rock my Brandy Melville This is T-Dot tank. 

My go to summer flats are my Vans Classic Slip-Ons. I've loved them since I first laid eyes on them over a decade ago. I still remember wearing them to my first Warped Tour in 2004 and feeling like the coolest kid at the party. lol I have yet to find shoes more comfortable (and durable) than these bad boys.
