Not me…this weather!  It is hard to believe that it is just past mid-September and we are still in the middle of a heat wave.  It was 30 degrees at my house a couple days ago.  Wowzas!  While I do love this prolonged sunshine, I could use just a bit of a cool down.  Not to be a brat, but I’ve got Fall shopping to do and this extreme heat is delaying me playing with cozy layers.

Continuing with the transitioning part of this time of year, I’m opting for snug skirts with bare legs, flowy easy blouses, and, my fave, ankle boots.  On a hot day I have to pull my hair back, so a high pony seemed like the perfect {and easy} choice.  I’ve also completely fallen in love with statement earrings.  These beauties from Olive & Piper totally made my look a bit more oh la la.

This time of year is always a bit strange fashion wise.  It’s WAY too hot to be layering on cozy sweaters, and somehow, it doesn’t look quite right to be running around in Summer dresses either.   Lately I’ve been gravitating towards anything lightweight and my favorite neutral colours.  {Thank you fashion for making the minimalist look a trend right now.}   It seems like the perfect way to transition into Fall.   I find the key is even though I’m wearing basics, I still keep it interesting with texture and a couple of accessories.  Jersey is my mommy-go-to fabric of choice.  These pants by Nicole Bridger have been a fave of mine from the early stage of my pregnancy {before the bump}, all throughout my pregnancy, and now again post pregnancy.  There’s something to be said about comfort and style.

Stay tuned for some fun new Fall Fashion posts coming soon!

For some reason the beginning of September seems to {unofficially} mark the end of Summer.  We still have a few weeks left, but there is this shift that seems to happen after Labour Day.  It gets darker earlier, there’s a coolness to the air, and I start thinking about my wardrobe for the upcoming season.

The word you will hear over and over again this next month is transition.  I start thinking/purchasing transition items at the beginning of August.   When shopping I ask myself, “Can I wear this now?” and “How will I wear it for Fall?”   I picked up this little BCBG dress at their outlet right near where I live.  It’s been perfect for now with sandals and boho accessories.  You will definitely see me reworking this dress in to the Fall season.  How?  You’ll have to check back.

 

Congratulations to Masumi K!  You are the winner!

 

It seems when September rolls around, we start thinking about cozy sweaters, falling leaves, and pumpkin flavored everything.  The reality is that September is still actually quite a warm month with a strong sun.  This means we can’t forget about sun protection.

I’ve recently been introduced to the new Cloud Vitamin A Sun Protection.  Cloud is your guardian, neutralizing and preventing the constant injuries inflicted by sun and pollution {love this fact}.  Cloud Retinyl Palmitate protects against 93% more of the sun’s power than conventional sunscreen while providing long-lasting benefits you can see and feel in any weather.

So what does all this mean?  Cloud will prevent and reverse signs of aging, help in skin cancer prevention, and provide sun protection throughout the year.   A few of the things I love about the product is that it is paraben free, fragrance free, preservative free, and their labs are located in Victoria, BC so it’s a Canadian product!

Want to give it a try?  I am offering one lucky reader a Cloud bundle pack so you too can try out this new, gentle, local product.

If I had to pick just one favorite moment from last week’s Diner En Blanc, I don’t think I would be able to.  The whole evening has a magical quality to it.  A sea of people dressed in their finest whites all dining together under the stars…magical!  Being that this was our second year attending, we felt much better prepared.  Our food was perfect and our set up was beautiful with minimal work involved.  The best part {ok, I picked one}  was obviously sharing it with good friends.  Alicia and Adam, you made the evening all that much more special.  Can’t wait to do it again next year!
