Florals and Dresses? It’s Summer!

I must say, dresses are a girl’s best friend! Especially when you’ve got to beat the heat this summer! Dresses are perfect for when you’re on the go or on those humid days when a pair of jeans or jeggings just feel too sticky and icky!

The best part about dresses is you don’t need much, maybe some accessories and a pair of matching shoes, be it a pair of heels for fancier occasions or flats for the more casual days. Remember, dresses themselves are a statement so keeping it simple and elegant is ideal.

 

Florals  are your go to for summer! They give off the perfect spring/ summer vibe and add just the right color to your look! Additionally, floral prints make the ‘mix n’ match’ process easy because a simple, solid color goes well with the look even basic colours such as black and white. So for the breezier nights throwing on a simple black shawl or cardigan will match just right.

As for accessories, like I said, you don’t need much! Although, if you’re attending a fancier occasion, adding a necklace along with a pair of earrings, a watch or maybe a bracelet will fit perfectly. Otherwise, those humid days call for something simple and easy!

Whether it’s to go fancy or to simply avoid the heat, dresses are your go to this summer so make use of the weather while it lasts or in other words, beat the heat!

Make a Statement

It’s that time of the year again! Summer time! So all those bbq’s, work get togethers, and meet ups are on roll and well you’ve got to dress to impress! So if you’re attending a family member’s big day or a fancy Friday at work, here are tips to stay classy.

Firstly, July is the heart of the warm summer days and the best way to get through them are by wearing light or neutral colors that reflect the sun. Whites are ideal for days like these and not only do they keep you cool but make a statement so it’s easy to pair with any set of bottoms! Whether it’s a pair of leather leggings or the immensely trending high waisted palazzo pants, a simple top goes a long way.

Secondly, heels! Heels are a definite must for any party related events so pull out the trendiest of heels and make a statement! Because the outfit is simple, fancy heels will carry the outfit well.

Lastly the accessories! With a simple, classy and statement making outfit you don’t need much to polish up the look but if you’re like me and just cant make do without accessories, adding a watch, bracelet, or a few rings will add the itsy bits to the look.

So this summer around, be sure to keep it simple, classy and attend all those parties with some style!

 

Comfy yet Stylish, Oh Its Possible!

As summer kicks off and the vacations and summer parties are right the around corner so are those summer jobs and work! So even though staying in PJ’s or sweats all day is ‘oh so easy’, sadly, you’ll have to change eventually! So here are three easy tips on how to stay comfy yet chic for those long working hours!

Firstly, make sure you get a pair of comfy jeans or jeggings and from personal experience, spending a couple of dollars on a pair that fits and feels just right is definitely worth it! When you’re spending the 9-5 in one outfit, staying comfy is key.

Secondly, a pair of comfortable shoes is absolutely essential! If you’re up on your feet all day long, comfortable shoes will keep you going. Getting a pair of comfy flats in basic colors such as black, beige, or brown is ideal as they work with a variety of different colors and go well with any outfit really. So make sure you’ve got a pair or two that you can slip on when you’re in a rush and those days are yet to come!

Number three! Basic shirts! It may sound rudimentary but trust me; it’s better than having a formal blouse that you’re worried you are going to get stained or is hard to move around in. Blouses and fancy tops are great but surely not an everyday. A casual top can go a long way! It’s easy to accessorize with such as with a simple statement necklace, watch, and maybe a ring or two, which will not only add some charm but also keep it stylish yet comfortable.

All in all, hope this summer has many happy days to bring and if you’re working then make sure to stay comfy but nonetheless, elegant and well put together.

Denims and Lace, Lace up for Warmer Weather!

So the weather is finally starting to warm up and it’s time to pull out those dresses and skirts and put away the coats and boots! I think we’ve all been dreading this winter as it seemed to stay much longer than expected. Although, I wouldn’t recommend trusting Canada’s weather just yet, so make sure you keep denim jackets around! They go perfectly with a simple outfit and keep it casual yet dressed.

The best thing about denims is that they work with neutrals or darks and add just the right touch of color! Whether it’s a knee-high skirt or a maxi dress, denim jackets are perfect to pull over and well, if it decides to get chilly out, it’ll keep you warm. And a plus for denims is that you don’t need to accessorize much, just add a small side bag or clutch and if you’d like to add more, a bracelet or watch will look just right. But keeping the outfit simple and casual is perfect for a nice day out!


Anything lace just dresses up any outfit! Be it a skirt or a top. Lace patterned skirts add just the right touch of ‘fancy’ and add style to any look. Like denims, lace skirts make a statement on their own and don’t need to be accessorized as much.

So as the weather changes and it finally gets a little warmer out, pull out the denims and dresses/ skirts and welcome it with a smile!

Bold is Gold

We’ve all seen the bright yet gloomy days when the sun decides to stay behind the clouds. So, what better way to grapple days like those than with the bold and fierce look. Mixing darks with a splash of bright colors gives the perfect eye-catching look to any outfit! So if you’re an ‘all black everything fan’ this look is ideal for you! Wearing a pair of boots and keeping the colors dark is a perfect combination, especially when you add a bit of bold color to it. I personally love the high neck tops and feel they give off a fierce look and make up for a lack of accessories, especially on one of those ‘casual days’. Of course, accessories such as earrings, a necklace, or watch can add to the look but aren’t a must.

And as might be expected, a must have and an all time favourite are the leathers! Adding a leather jacket or coat just gives off the trendy, classy yet fierce look. They top off any outfit, especially if it’s to be spent outside on a chilly day.

Throwing on a pair of shades and adding a bright or bold lip color polish the outfit even more; keeping the outfit simple, casual and yet sophisticated. So on those gloomy days bring out your bolds and dress up with some color and stand out. It’s a quick to wear and easy to put together outfit but gives off the just the perfect bold and fierce look.
