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.

Dress: Le Chateau | Necklace: Olive & Piper | Floral Crown: The Flower Factory 

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!

Between working, blogging, motherhood, and the day to day hustle that is life, I haven’t been doing much that is ground breaking when it comes to my outfits.   As I’ve mentioned in many other posts, I’ve adopted a uniform mentality.  I’ve got my go-to looks that I stick too by mixing and matching some easy basics.  I simply don’t have the time I used to to spend getting ready.  A five minute shower, couple minutes to get dressed and then about ten minutes for hair and makeup is about the norm now.  Plus with all this hot weather we’ve been experiencing, why complicate things?

Instead of my usual black, grey, white combo, I opted to mix things up slightly with an easy red jersey dress, and neutral toned loose cardi.  With this being a work day outside the house, I left my hair down and threw on some shiny baubles as I didn’t have little hands grabbing at everything.

When I saw this dress hanging on the rack in the store, I thought of the famous Bill Blass quote: “When in doubt, wear red.”  I figured I’d go with those wise words.
