How to Wear a Floppy Hat in Warmer Weather

Wednesday, September 2, 2015


I'm loving the look of wool, floppy hats for Fall, they make such a great statement but also look effortlessly cool and stylish.  They come in a plethora of colours--I recently picked up a burnt orange one--and look great with a leather jacket, faux fur and scarves.

That said, since the weather is still warm, I wanted to show you how to wear this look before the temperatures drop.  I'm a big fan of showing skin on either the top, or bottom, not both usually so this look is exactly that.  The lightweight sweater is perfect for this time of year but the shorts keep you cool when the sun is out.  The look is easy yet pulled together and would look equally as great with pants and a sleeveless top.  

A Look Back at August

Tuesday, September 1, 2015

Happy September 1st!  August was kind of quiet around these parts but still busy in real life.
I shared a casual, Summer outfit, went to Montreal for the bachelorette, went to a modeling audition and took in the Light Show on Parliament Hill in the Nation's Capital.

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, August 31, 2015

On Friday evening, I headed to the gym and rounded out the week of going every. single. night.  This doesn't happen every week, by any means, but I had a goal to get there and did it... and then took the weekend off!

Friday Finds

Friday, August 28, 2015

Hi ladies!  I know I've been extremely M.I.A. this week, and to be honest, I've been experiencing a ton of--what I like to call--bloggers block.  Really wasn't sure what to post, I didn't have any outfits lined up since I was away last weekend and ultimately, just felt blah.  I hate leaving this space blank, but we should be back up and running normally next week.  Thanks for sticking by me.
Can you believe it's the last Friday of August?  I keep saying that today--it feels unreal.  I know we all say this but, 'Where did the Summer go?'.  What are your plans for the last weekend in August?  We have literally nothing planned, and since being away last weekend, the weekend before and going away next weekend, it's good to have some down time.  Something always comes up, is what I say, so I'm happy to lay low or spontaneously do something. 
Hope you have a great weekend!

Thinking about ordering these boots for Fall.

The coolest way to increase road safety.

Feeling this track.  #sorrynotsorry

The other day when I was paying at Winners, the guy cashier folded my t-shirt like this.  Impressive!

Love everything about this look.

Just scooped up these flared jeans.  I love the button fly & x-long length!

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps | Bachelorette Party in Montreal

Monday, August 24, 2015

Hi ladies!  I spent last weekend in Montreal celebrating my girl friend's bachelorette party.  It was a wicked, overnight to-do and I'd love to share a ton of photos with you...
I left my place just after 9am, grabbed coffee and picked up two of my girls and we drove out to Montreal (about a two hour drive).  We stopped about halfway at a service station and that's where this pic was snapped.
Upon arrival, we met up with four other friends, including the bride, who had arrived the night before.  We spent the entire day at the pool lounging around sipping drinks and enjoying the sunshine.
