Fun on the Farm

It’s been a hot summer, and I am more than ready for the weather to cool down! There’s something about the smell of fall hanging in the air and the crisp winds starting to pick up that puts a smile on my face. Fall is my favourite season and time of year and I love going to the farm to kick off the season! However, just because the temperatures drop, doesn’t mean you pack the dresses away!

Dress: c/o Pink Blush / Jacket: Old Navy / Shoes: Skechers / Purse: Thrifted

In fact, this is the perfect time of year to transition some of your summer staples to the cooler season! This grey wrap midi-dress is one of my new favourite dresses. I picked it up at Pink Blush and I cannot get enough of it! It is the simplest piece to style and extremely comfortable. As many of you know, Pink Blush is my favourite online boutique to pick up key pieces for my wardrobe! It is super si

mple to fill your cart with amazing finds and I am never disappointed!

I have already styled this dress a couple of ways, but today I wanted to show you my favourite way. Everybody knows that a good jean jacket is pretty much necessary to have in one’s wardrobe. I, personally, have three and I cycle them in and out of outfits as needed. For this look, I decided to pair it with my white denim jacket to give it a summer-fall transition feel.

White is such a tricky colour to style around this time of year. Sometimes it works for the cooler seasons, but it is primarily a summer colour. However, pairing it with other fall toned pieces creates the perfect September ensemble! I think that this wrap dress contrasts the white denim, all in all creating a very fun September look!

Last, but not least, I went for a more casual shoe. First of all, I was spending my morning at the farmer’s market and also running a few errands. Second of all, it’s a cute casual and comfortable look while still maintaining an element of flare! You can definitely jazz this ensemble up with a pair of low kitten heels or even wedges!

Fall is quickly approaching and I can’t contain my excitement! If you need me, I’ll be sipping my pumpkin spice latte, wrapped in a blanket scarf, shopping for pumpkins!

Happy Fall!

Whimsical Wrap Dress

Summer is in full swing, and what better way to celebrate the sunny season than with a whimsical getaway?! A couple of weeks ago, I hopped on a plane and spontaneously flew to Punta Cana! Punta Cana is such a magical place, and every moment I was there, I felt like a true princess.

Vacations are a time to kick back and relax, but also the time to experiment with your style! Tropical prints, light fabric, and bold colours are all apart of the vibes you can play with! Before this getaway, I had never ventured to the islands, or anywhere remotely tropical…so needless to say, it was my opportunity to have FUN!

PinkBlush is one of my go-to boutiques for fun prints and feminine style. I literally always find something that makes me feel amazing. This beautiful wrap tie dress caught my eye instantly when I was curating my vacation looks. I just love the vibes it gives off. This isn’t a dress I would normally gravitate to because the print is outside my comfort zone. However, I took a chance and I am SO glad that I did.

I love the ruffle detail in the neckline, and how it ties around the waist. It’s such a unique and fun style, and perfect for your tropical getaway! The pops of colour in the print really resonated with me, and I feel like it’s just such a simple dress to style. Here, I styled it with my go-to flip flops, but throwing on a pair of neutral wedges takes the look to a whole new level!

As always, PinkBlush didn’t let me down, and I continue to drool over their perfectly feminine styles.

CHEERS!

Matching with the Cherry Blossoms

Summer is finally here! It felt like the drippy weather was never going to end! I am so happy to be getting outside, feeling that warm summer breeze and just embracing the season. It certainly is one of my favourite times of the year.

Jacket: H&M / Shirt: Garage / Scarf: Thrifted / Pants: Urban Planet / Shoes: c/o Skechers

It is time to put your winter boots away and pull out the outdoor kicks! I love shoes, but I have never been one to wear sneakers as my every day. I love my flip flops and pretty much live in them throughout the summer. However, I recently have been getting a lot more active and sneakers are becoming my number one choice.

It’s no secret that I am a big fan of Skechers (here and here). I recently received this amazing pair of “Flex Appeal” Skechers running shoes. They are pretty much what I live in now. They have air cooled memory foam technology in the soles which make them light, airy and completely comfortable. Also, they are PINK (that’s my kind of shoe). I love how great they make my feet feel, and how stylish they are all at the same time.

I recently trekked down to High Park to do some city sight seeing. Early May is the peak time to view the cherry blossoms bloom, and there was no way I was going to miss out on something so beautiful! I don’t live right in Toronto, so it was definitely a hike to get there, but I made it and I definitely didn’t mind matching with the blossoms.

For this look, I didn’t want to look super sporty. I also wanted pink to be the POP of my look, so I paired the shoes with some more casual and muted pieces (i.e. denim jacket, black jeans, etc.). The eye-catching pink scarf pulls the look together because of the POP of pink in the shoes (side note: it was way too hot for a scarf…oh well). I really love how this look was so simple to style and throw together!

Skechers is my go-to for in style, casual and cute shoes. As a bonus (and I really mean bonus, because women do not emphasize this certain factor in most shoe scenarios), they are SO COMFORTABLE. I cannot say that enough!

Keep it cute and casual with Skechers this season!

Dockside Stripes

Good news, everyone! The sun has finally come out of hiding and we are getting the warm spring weather we deserve! There is nothing I love more than a good day spent outside, and this week brings the start of my outside days.

There is nothing better than taking a stroll down the dock, gazing over the water and beautiful trees. We took a stroll in downtown Lakefield by the marina and oh did we ever get summer vibes. Now, spring is definitely a beautiful season, but hanging my feet over the dock, splashing the water with the tips of my toes and feeling the wind through my hair? Definitely swooping me up into a summer dream.

Believe it or not, only two short weeks ago, this entire city was covered in snow. Yup, you read that right. We had an ice storm – trees were down, roads were blocked, and it was definitely a hot cocoa + Netflix kind of weekend. Now look where we are – back to normal spring things.

The tragic return of Canadian winter gave me a good scare. But now the snow is gone and spring outfits are at the forefront of my closet (thank goodness!!). I am all about patterns right now – especially stripes. I think I own more striped things than a girl needs!! Yellow is never my go to colour. However, what better time to try this pastel shade than the beginning of the sunny season?

This is such a simple look to recreate, and a comfy one at that! I love the detail in the sleeves and how the warm colour just makes me feel like sunshine. Plus, it is so soft! You can get this piece and many other amazing pieces just like it online at PinkBlush.

I have so many ideas for the warmer months! I can’t wait until the warm weather is here for good – warm weather without rain that is.

Cheers!

Winter Uniform

I can see the light at the end of the long snowy tunnel. Winter is almost over, and I am more than thrilled. I am a winter-lover, appreciative of the pretty crystal like scenery outside my window each morning. However, when the calendar flips to March, and the snow turns to slush…I’m over it. It’s time for spring flowers and showers, and everything that comes with the season before summer!

Sweater: Joe Fresh / Vest: c/o Shein / Jeans: Urban Planet / Shoes: Blundstone

One of the positive things about winter is the sweater weather that accompanies it. I love pulling on a cozy turtle neck, or fluffy vest to keep me toasty while hustling and bustling around in the snow. Sweaters are the most basic pieces of clothing to style, and so I try to follow a rule when I am coordinating a sweater weather look: add a third piece.

Today, my third piece rule features a fabulous furry item I got from my favourite little online shop, Shein. Shein has become my go-to spot for picking up cute, and inexpensive pieces. I have a bit of a shopping addiction (as most of you know), and so it can get quite expensive when I am buying item after item. I’m not kidding, you can get an entire outfit on Shein for under $30 (maybe even more during high sale times!).

This look is only featuring one stylish item from Shein, and that is this puffy white faux-fur vest. It is just the third piece that takes this outfit to the next level. Black jeans and a knit sweater is a common outfit choice for me. However, adding this third piece gives this look some depth. Plus, I get to blend in with the snow (haha!). It’s cozy and furry (just how I like it!).

I love wacky pieces like this one because it isn’t something you might wear every day. However, when you do…you feel like a snow princess! I always wear this vest dressed down, but you could use it as a third piece in a dressed up ensemble as well – the options are endless!

Head over to Shein now to check out their spring collection – you won’t regret it!
