Hello Lovelies! Summer is slowly drawing to a end, but not quite yet :) The days are warm and are sandwiched in by cooler mornings and evenings. This is where you have to do a lot of transition outfits! Fall is definitely in my top favorites for wardrobe! The colors are beautiful, you get to be all cozied up, and hot chocolate and pumpkin spiced lattes are always on the menu :) One of my favorites is to dress a pair of shorts with a warm cozy sweater. I also love to add a closed-toe shoe option, so my feet don’t freeze! This keeps it perfect for transitioning from the cool mornings into the late summer days. Don’t forget to throw on a nice chunk of bling and accessories to show up before those gloves & scarves cover it all up! <3

Good morning my loves! Just been loving having some home time to ourselves, catching up on work, doing some online shopping :) and of course experimenting with fun new ideas as always! Thought I’d share this outfit from a little while back. This has been a fun summer staple for me, with an edge of class. Sometimes when I’m feeling a little “frumpy” I like to combine a summer look with a fitted blazer and my cute and always lovely strappy flats. It’s just a little something different than the classic shorts and sandals, don’t ya think? Also, a big ol’ statement necklace never hurt anyone either! Don’t be afraid to step outside the lines a little every now and then. It’s fun to explore.. that’s what life is for after all! <3

Hello my loves! We just had the most wonderful visit in Saskatoon over the past week. It is definitely one of my top favorite places to be in the summer, especially with all the trees in these riverside neighborhoods. Since the weather is so up and down, hot then cold, this oversized patterned frock was perfect for the day. I really loved putting some focus on the small details of my accessories. This outfit was perfectly paired with my Tory Burch sandals and a long subtle necklace, and my dainty Kate Spade bracelet. Absolutely adore these tribal patterns, and the longer sleeves were a great add for the chilly night time. I just had so much fun on this shoot, remembering all that I am grateful for in my life! Don’t forget to celebrate the little things, and all the moments in between <3

Happy Tuesday loves!
