Sense of Independence

You guys know I love supporting Canadian boutiques and brands, so when I discovered Sense of Independence, a boutique and online store out of Toronto, I was so excited! They carry a wide range of brands and styles that have me written all over them.  From cozy AF loungewear to stunning pieces for work, they do a great job of curating unique, quality pieces!

Sisters, Naomi and Michelle opened Sense of Independence’s flagship store in Toronto over a decade ago.   They continue to keep up with the trends by travelling the globe to gain inspiration and find the latest must-haves… two girls after my own heart #gypsygirlsunite!  Although their brick and mortar shop is in the heart of Toronto, don’t worry- everything they have in store is online, and really, what’s better than shopping in bed, with your dog resting his head on your laptop, and a coffee in one hand? Apparently nothing, because that’s exactly what I did when choosing the following pieces!

This rainbow crewneck sweater caused my DM’s to blow up when I posted a photo of me wearing it the other day and for good reason! It is absolutely adorable, stinkin’ cute, and SO cozy!  I’m wearing a size small which gives it a bit of the oversized boyfriend look. This sweater is perfect for cool ice cream date nights or anything really…but an ice cream date does sound pretty sweet 😉


Lately I have been going crazy for anything tie dye– I legit can’t get enough of it, so when I saw this t shirt it was in my shopping cart within .5 seconds.  I have worn it tucked in as shown below and also tied it in a knot at the front, because you know, ABC (always be croppin’)… I’m wearing a size small.

Another obsession: anything animal print! I love this sweater because it brings a fun element to everyday work wear. This sweater can be dressed up and worn to the office with some black pants (or skirt, if that’s your thing), some heels, and some nice jewelry or casually with a pair of distressed jeans and sneakers.  Gorgeous, fun, versatile, and the best part… cozy!! I’m wearing a size small.



Oh, and let’s talk about these jeans!!! They legit feel like butter… they’re SO soft! I love the unique hem at the bottom, the minimal distressing around the knees, and the price point! If you do decide to order these, I would highly suggest sizing at least one or maybe even two sizes down as they are very stretchy! I’m wearing a size 25.

Last but not least, this absolutely beautiful blouse. The unique texture almost gives it a bit of a shimmer which makes it look so luxe! It comes with a matching camisole so you don’t have to worry about finding something to go under it, and some extra buttons in case you’re like me and loose buttons constantly! I’m wearing a small.
