MONOCHROME: SUMMER WHITES






Mules / Mimosa (Browns Shoes), Shorts / 7 For All Mankind, Tank / Zara (similar), Knit / Wilfred Free (Aritzia), Bag / Coach, Lipstick / Revlon 725 love that red

I don't usually wear a red lip but thought it would be a good way to dress up an all white, causal summer look and add a pop of colour. This Revlon shade is perfect, matte and bold but not too warm or cool. I love the texture of this waffle knit sweater and the deep V-neck when its zipped (here). With knitwear being such a big trend for fall I'm sure I will get a lot of use out of it in the upcoming months.

VINTAGE




Silk scarf / Vintage, Denim / Zara, Tee / American apparel

I've been on the hunt for a vintage scarf lately, ever since I saw the Celine (here), but wanting to find some less expensive options so I could try a few out. I found these ones at Value Village for a couple dollars each. They're a cool way to add personality to an outfit without spending too much and you can use them in so many different ways.

WISH LIST

WEEKLY WISH LIST



Tshirt / Valentino, Short / Alexander Wang, Shoes /Yaeger , Watch / Cartier, Denim Shirt / Topshop, Handbag / Zara

I really like the combination of luxe materials, like the crocodile leather Zara bag and loafers with a worn in denim. The nude coloured shorts and top also would look cool with the denim and are a nice backdrop to let the accessories stand out.

PERFECT MATCH

SLIP DRESS + SWEATSHIRT 
The perfect match for a rainy day inside when you want to be comfortable, a slip dress and sweatshirt. My dog Bentley has to wear this cone on his head and wanted in on a picture, how could I say no! This sweatshirt is from Aritzia by a company called Community, I just found their clothing and really like it. They have a lot of nice basics that fit well and are at a good price point.

HIGH STREET FAVOURITE

ZARA TRENCH


Photo from Zara / Trench (here)

Zara always has the most beautiful pieces at amazing prices. I have a jacket similar to this (here) in a tan colour and love it. This black one is from their latest collection and is definitely on my wish list for Fall. The shape and length are perfect and for 150$ it could be yours.

CROP TOP





 Shoes / Madden Girl, Shorts / French Connection (Winners), Crop top / Zara, Sunglasses / Ray Ban


I just picked these shorts up on the weekend at Winners. I wasn't sure if I should get them or not but I'm so happy I did. They are very oversized and so comfortable, perfect with a crop top because they are high waisted. The Madden Girl shoes I'm wearing I found on sale after looking for a budget friendly version of the Stuart Wietzman 'nudist' so these were perfect, I love all the sales this time of year!

STATEMENT EARRING

A trend I've noticed lately is the statement earring, sometimes just the one earring itself. It has definitely grown on me, maybe not the single earring just yet but these Marni ones are gorgeous, and subtle enough for me. Paired with this beautiful strapless top and some vintage Levis, they would look perfect!

BLACK ON BLACK

ACNE RASA SILK

This is a really easy outfit, just three basic pieces; black linen shorts, a black silk shirt and d'orsay flats. The cut of the top is a really cool boxy shape with side panels to accentuate that. Both the top and bottom are on sale right now at Acne Studios.

THE CLASSICS




Shoes / Nine West, Denim / Vintage Levis, Bag / Marc Jacobs, Watch / Seiko, Sweater / Gap

My favourite outfits seems to be the simple ones, classic pieces and colours in a more modern fit. I found these Levis at a vintage shop and had them reworked, they were much more oversized before, here.
