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.

 

When it comes to my Summer wardrobe, I try to add a bit of colour and life to my warm weather style.  There are certain pieces in my closet that make my wardrobe a bit more fabulous.  Here are 5 of my musts to get me through our upcoming sun-shiny season.

1.  Silk Kimono top by Winter Kate

 

2. Silk printed maxi dress by BCBG.

3. Mint flowy hi-low skirt by Wilfred.

4. Floral print dress by Prabal  Gurung for Target

5. Sheer white blouse by Staple.

 Happy Friday! xoxo

 

Spring is the perfect time of year to embrace change.  I’m full of changes in my life lately.  I’m a newlywed, we’ve started home renovations, so I figured why not change my look.  Today I embraced change and decided to chop my hair off.  I’m loving my new look and how it makes me feel.  Change is a good thing!

The new do!

Thursday turned out to be yet another rainy day in Vancouver.  But fear not!  Rumour is, we can be expecting some warm sunny days very soon.

Rainy mornings in June, prove to be a bit of a styling challenge…but Mother Nature, challenge accepted.  I find that simple white is the best way to brighten up my look.  You can’t really get more classic than a white top paired with jeans.  I’ll admit I needed a little retail therapy for my rainy-day-woes and picked up this Staple blouse just this week.  These are the dangers of working in a store.

I love when you “find” things in your closet.  I had forgot about these great silver star hoops I bought at Kitson down in L.A.  It’s so satisfying it’s like shopping without spending money.

I so wish I could wear heels all day long, but my back gets super angry.  At least there are loads of cute little flats and sandals.

Happy Friday Stylistas!
