Day Tripper (& July Playlist)

She was a day tripper
Sunday driver, yeah
It took me so long to find out
And I found out

{One of my favourite songs....ever}
Here are my photos from my day out with two of my favourite people in the whole world...N (in the purple) and H (in the pink tank). We went downtown to Kensington Market---a vintage mecca in Toronto and came home with some great finds! Unfortunately, I didn't shoot many pictures but hopefully next time I will. There were some stores I was absolutely dying to go into such as Courage My Love (14 Kensington Ave), Flashback (33 Kensington Ave) & Bungalow (273 Augusta Avenue) but I was a little disappointed at the selection the stores had.

First up on our trip was Bungalow and we spent forever browsing through their sunglasses (reasonably priced at $20). Their vintage clothing however, was a little overpriced but they also carried contemporary designs from Von Dutch and the like. I was amazed by their vintage leather jacket rack!

Next up was Flashback but I didn't spend too long in the store as my friends decided the smell of cannabis was way too off-putting. The store didn't carry anything appealing to me so we made a stop at Courage My Love.

Let me tell you, I was EXCITED for this store as I had heard so many great things about it from other Toronto bloggers. I walked away with a green friendship bracelet, an ankh charm and two skull beads for less than $10. Would've liked to spend less seeing as everything was very small but I can't complain much as the two skull beads ($2 each) are what I have been wanting since forever!

One of the most memorable stores at Kensington's was "Blue Banana Market" (250 Augusta Avenue). It was like the ultimate indie gift shop. I seriously wanted to buy every single thing in the store ----from the "Keep Calm and Carry On" merchandise to their pin-up wallets.

A Beatle's tank ($12) from Kensington Ave --- the store also had amazing Marilyn Monroe, Mick Jagger and Audrey Hepburn tanks! Check back soon to see how I put this in an OOTD!

That's it for my trip! I am definitely planning to go back this summer and hit up Queen Street as well...Also, before I forget to mention this, I've decided to compile a list of my favourite songs for each month, starting with July! If all goes well, it will be a monthly feature. Below, are my most played tunes for July:

{I do not own any of these album covers}
Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr - "Simple Girl"
Arkells - "Whistleblower"
Surfer Blood - "Take it Easy"
Free Energy - "Something In Common"
Think About Life - "Sweet 16"
Bon Iver - "Blood Bank"
Arkells - "Kiss Cam"
Amy Winehouse - "Valerie"

Tell me what you think of my playlist!
Love, J.
