– Monty & I –

GUESS WHAT? It happened….

Remember my first post when I wrote “so much has happened, so much is happening”? Well.. it all came together and I’m so thrilled/ecstatic/slightly terrified for this new beginning commencing in T minus eight days – the countdown begins… 


There are so many things I want to write about in this post, from my Beetlejuice outfit to what’s going on in my life to Mr. Monty, so I’ll try to keep this as short and sweet as possible.A_Settingiano_Monty-6

As I mentioned in this post a while back, I was apartment hunting because I’m moving across the country to Toronto, however, I haven’t gone into detail and opened up about the reason behind this decision. Aside from the fact that I’ve always loved Toronto and moving to the city has been a dream of mine for years now, I am looking to further my education and pursue a degree in Fashion. I completed high school in ’13 and decided to take a couple years off to explore, not only my surroundings but also within (as cliche as it sounds, it’s true). After two years of soul-searching, working and travelling a bit I’ve decided to take a leap of faith and move out to study in TO. In all honesty, I’ve never felt so sure and confident about a decision in my entire life and I think those two years gave me the chance to grow into my own and discover myself in this world. 

I’ve always really enjoyed school, learning never gets boring. For those of you who don’t know, I was homeschooled throughout all of high school so studying has always been incredibly important. I remember I’d write my notes and complete my assignments in between filming and editing my videos for my YouTube channel and needless to say, it was the absolute best combination I could’ve ever asked for! Side note: For those lovely viewers who have been writing me asking about YouTube and if I’ll be making a return: Yes. However, I am trying to take things one step at a time and once I settle into my new surroundings a video is first on my list ; )

To be completely honest I don’t think it’s hit me quite yet. Knowing me it’ll probably take packing up my life and boarding the plane before I realize I have a new home. Even though I’m nervous to go out on my own, I’m also so incredibly excited and ready for this chapter in my life. I feel so blessed to have an opportunity to study what I’ve always been most passionate about and turn it into a career. I’m also very blessed to have this wonderful outlet to document this momentous time and take you all along with me, hehehe ; ) 

I can’t believe that the time has finally come that I can write this post knowing for sure that I’ll be in a completely different city and time zone within a week. I booked my one way ticket for the 1st of September for not only me, but also the love of my life, Mr. Monty who is featured in these photos (we wanted to shoot a look together to announce this new and exciting adventure). Even though I’ll be leaving home, Monty will be coming along and we’ll be taking on Toronto together. I truly wouldn’t have it any other way, he is my best friend.

Monty and I definitely have the same style. We almost always match… I mean.. he’s white, black eyes – my favorite color combination, as I’m sure you could tell by now. Monty absolutely loves the camera, it’s like he knows he’s getting his photo taken and can’t help but pose. This is Monty ladies and gentlemen, glad you’re finally aquatinted. 


 As much as I love a neutral b&w look I always find a way to add a pop of color, wether it be a bag, shoes or a lipcolor – in this case my sunnies & lips. These blue aviators were an impulse buy, they just screamed “summer statement piece” to me and I’m so in love with the mirrored look. You really can’t have too many sunglasses…

Also trying out a new look here – the culottes. Personally, I think they’re unique and I can see myself wearing them with knee high boots when fall rolls around. Of course, the first pair I try are black and white and as I was editing these photos I realized how much they resemble Beetlejuice. I’m not mad. Not even a little. These are my Beetlejuice pants and I adore them. A_Settingiano_Monty-3 A_Settingiano_Monty-5A_Settingiano_Monty-2
