Denim & Flowers

American Eagle Tank, J Brand Denim, Smart Set Blazer, Calvin Klein Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Forever 21 Cuff, D&G Sunnies

Friends, the weather has been glorious here. I spent the weekend at my grandparent's up north of New Brunswick, in a small village called Lac Baker. It's where I spent the happiest moments of my childhood, and every time I go back, I have such a good time. I did coax my brother to take a few pictures, and they'll be up this week. It came with a price for him though - he got about 10 bug bites in his neck. I think mosquitos are particularly attracted to him because I got away with only a couple!

I couldn't resist when I saw this American Eagle top for a mere $8 - the print is so fun and playful, and the cut of it is so flattering! I loved wearing it with jeans on casual Friday at work, but I can see myself pairing with cut-off denim shorts and a straw hat for the beach!

Happy Monday!

BB Dakota Celerina Horizon Dress (on super sale!), Shoemint Sandals, J Crew Bag, BaubleBar Necklace, Ray-Ban Sunnies

I don't want to brag or anything, but I think I've found the perfect summer dress. It's light and airy, it's the color of sherbet - what more do you need? Every year, BB Dakota really kills me with their summer dress offerings. While I wishlisted maybe 10 of their summer dresses, I ended up deciding on this one (oh, and this one). Be warned, this dress is BRIGHT. On the Revolve website (where I bought it) it looks a lot more peachy than it is in real life. But it's all the better that way - I totally needed a bright addition to my closet. ;)

Shifty Flowers

H&M Dress & Jean Jacket, Marc Fisher Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Winners Cuff, Ray-Ban Sunnies

If you asked me what my favorite summer clothing item would be, I think my answer would have to be a shift dress. Especially those that feel light as air, and allows you to drink tons of beer on a rooftop patio, and not look bloated. This H&M number is pretty much exactly that - lightweight, comfortable, and it doesn't cling to body parts in an unflattering way. Would it be inappropriate to call it my summer beer dress? No? Done!

Flirty Flowers

Smart Set Top, W118 by Walter Baker Skirt, Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini Bag, Michael Kors Darci Watch, H&M Bracelet, Gorjana Necklace, D&G Sunnies, Oasis Pumps

Other than a few rainy days, the weather has been glorious here in New Brunswick. So good in fact that I've resorted to biking to work every day that is not rainy (more or less). Actually, the real reason I wanted to work is because the city is doing repairs on the bridge on my way to work, ensuring massive traffic jams during rush hour. So I figured a) I'd save gas and b) I'd get some moderate exercise in my daily routine!

I bought this Walter Baker skirt at a local Winners for almost nothing and keep finding new uses for it! I've worn it with a cream colored sweater, patterned blouses, and even lime! I love when an item turns out to be more versatile than you'd expect. I wanted to add a little color to this look with red accents, and lips!

Thank you for reading, and have a great day!

The Drapey Pants

Old Navy Drapey Pants, Gap Coral Sweater, Aldo Pumps, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Michael Kors Watch, Necklace bought at Envy, Ray-Ban Sunnies 

Being petite, I was pretty convinced that there's no way I could pull off those drapey pants I had been eyeing on the Old Navy website. But willing myself to try out the "cropped" version, I was pleasantly surprised! First off, these are so freaking comfortable. They feel like pyjama pants, but better. And secondly, they don't look half bad on me (I think so anyway)! I love to wear them with a tank and jean jacket, but chose to pair it with a bright coral sweater for today's post. What do you think?

Lesson of the day: try something out even if you don't think it will suit you! My next endeavour? Rompers! What piece of clothing has worked on you that you thought never would?

Converse Sneakers (the "Dainty" version), Joes Boyfriend denim, Smart Set tank, Aerie Lace top, Rebecca Minkoff Bag, Ray-Ban Sunnies, BCBG Max Azria Watch

A few days ago, my sister and I took a walk with the sole purpose of snapping a few pictures with the sun coming through the trees. On our way to a location I had planned for us to go to, we came across this beautiful tree. I had to take a couple pictures for the blog! You can't tell from the pictures, but mosquitos were rampant, and I got quite a lot of bites on my ankles - at the moment, I have 7 on one side of my right ankle. As much as I hate mosquitos, their appearance in my life just proves that summer is here for good. I'll take mosquitos anytime over snow or cold!

Old Navy Jacket and Pineapple Tank, Joe Fresh Skirt, Stella & Dot Necklace, J Crew Bag, Sam Edelman Pumps, Ray-Ban Sunnies, Gorjana Bracelet, Michael Kors Watch

Good morning,

Last week, a tragedy hit my hometown. A gunman shot five police officers, killing three. Never has something like that happened where I grew up, let alone my home province of New Brunswick. My family and friends were under lockdown, and I spent most of the 30 hours it took for the gunman to get caught informing them of the ongoing situation. My mother was telling me she still feels unsure about walking in her neighbourhood, and understandable so. Today, there will be funeral for the fallen officers, and my thoughts are with them and their families.

And now that I've explained where my brain was last week (it didn't feel right not to), here's a look I wore on a really hot day early last week. A pineapple tank! While I'm not really one to be attracted to prints, and silly ones at that, this pineapple tank was just too cute to pass up.

Also wanted to mention that today marks 4 years with my boyfriend. Happy 4 years to my best friend and partner in crime! We both took the day off work with plans to hit the beach. I think a relaxation will do us some good!

Boho Vibes

Joe Fresh top & sunnies, AE khakis, Smart Set necklace, Forever 21 bangle, Michael Kors watch, Aldo pumps, J Crew bag

Right now, as I type, the Joe Fresh top I'm wearing in today's post is $5.96 on their website. Crazy! They have the most ridiculous sales! And if you use the coupon code HOORAY, you'll get free shipping! As much as this is a long sleeve top, I'll definitely be wearing it this summer as the material is light as air!

Have a wonderful day!

Bold Stripes

Old Navy T-Shirt, Asos Skirt & Leather Jacket, J Crew Bag, Arturo Chiang Sandals, BaubleBar Necklace, Michael Kors Watch, Ray-Ban Sunnies

Recently, it occurred to me that I don't own too many tops (says the shopaholic). I own quite a few casual white, grey, black tees, but sometimes, you want a little something more, ya know? Enter this Old Navy tee. I've already worn it ... 5-6 times in the three weeks since I've bought it! While I've mostly worn it with my boyfriend jeans and Sperrys, I thought I'd dress it up a little with a pleated skirt! What do you think? And to think that it was only $5! #oldnavywin
