white ON white


Urban Outfitters Top, J. Brand Jeans, Aldo Flats, MAC Lipstick

White after Labour Day – is this really still a sartorial question? Winter whites are just around the corner, so who’s to say we can’t wear all white in between. These bright white J. Brand’s are the white jeans for me, high waisted and the perfect skinny fit. I’ll be wearing this denim all the way back around to summer.


THE LIST: aquazzura inspired flats

  1. Aquazzura Christy Flat 2. Aquazzura Belgravia Flat 3. Billy Ella Flat 4. Zara Lace Up Flat 5. Aldo Colyn 6. TopShop 7. Stuart Weitzman The Gilligan 8. TopShop

Saying the Aquazzura lace up flat is the shoe of the year is an understatement. When a good flat comes along you can’t deny it, they can be few and far between. If the original Aquazzura style isn’t in your budget, these look-a-likes will do just fine.

Those weeks between summer and fall can be the most bittersweet, confusing and wonderful. I dread fall each and every time. Just let my legs be free of pants and let me keep my down jacket in hiding a little longer. On the slightly cooler, sunny days, I’m transitioning to light sweaters, but keeping those short shorts swinging.

Have you been to Young and Tae on Queen West? The store originates from Korea, selling classic and trendy footwear that is customizable – choose your type of leather, colour, heel height!


end of summer

I hate to say it, but summer is on its way out. Time flies when you’re a Canadian dreading the start of a six month winter. This off the shoulder Zara dress is one that I bought pre-summer; the classic blue and white combined with a little boho was everything I wanted.

Hold onto to the last days of sunshine: park hangs are what I’m all about until the first few leaves fall.




These denim shorts are so overworn…I mean you just saw them here, but they are quite the staple in my summer wardrobe. Vintage Levi’s cutoffs are one of those versatile pieces that I like to dress up and down. Pair with a blouse and these new Aquazzura-inspired lace up flats from Aldo shoes, and it’s off for drinks I go!

How do you wear your denim cutoffs – casual or dressed up?


wedding season: ALICE + OLIVIA


There’s nothing more I love than a good wedding, especially when it’s one of a best friend. Of course for me as soon as the wedding invites arrive I’m thinking about what I should wear. This gives me a few months to scope out different styles and establish the best fit for the specific wedding. My best friend was throwing a brunch wedding in the Distillery District – perfect, two of my favourite things. I knew it was going to be a pretty well-dressed crowd and fairly formal, so I wore for this open back Alice + Olivia dress. The short front maxi, was light and perfect for a hot summer morning. While the open back and plunging neckline were my favourite, you can’t forget to use fashion tape, just in case – don’t need to be showing off too much over mimosas.

Another maxi dress of choice for wedding season is this Diane Von Furstenberg one that I wore here and also to another friend’s wedding in June.


WAYHOME: festival style

Current state: laying in bed listening to Sam Smith. This weekend was the first ever Wayhome Music Festival in Oro Medonte, Ontario. I fall hard for festivals, so I packed up some foolproof festival outfits and made my way North of Toronto with the squad.

Camping can be fun, don’t get me wrong, but with heat wave temperatures I was happy to be renting a hotel and curling my hair everyday, sorry campers! For day 3, I stuck to the basics – denim cutoffs, slight crop tank and a shady straw hat – all classic pieces from Urban Outfitters.

Hope you enjoyed the weekend as much as I did, wayhomies!


THE LIST: sandal series


1. Jeffrey Campbell Secouer Suede Boot 2. H&M Fringed Sandal 3. Loeffler Randall Sierra 4. Mother of Pearl Pool Slides 5. Giuseppe Zanotti Western Sandal 6. Dolce Vita Nalaa 7. Nine West Don’t Gudge 8. Joie Renee 9. IRO Xoey 10. Kelsi Dagger Brooklyn Sandal

It’s just a few days to summer solstice and while the weather is finally all about bare legs and booties, I’ve decided to up my sandal game. A girl can’t always be wearing booties, silly!

The evolution of fashion is a funny thing. The slide totally brings me back to the single strap Adidas “shower” sandal that is also strangely making sightings on the streets…and I’m kind of into it? Fringe on the other hand I also loved. The Penny Lane vibes are something I try to channel just ever so slightly. But the a thick strap gladiator, that’s got you all wrapped up, is what I’m all about. Delicate and authentic, or punky and buckled, I’ll take ’em.


channeling my inner BIKER BABE


This spring, I’ve adopted the biker babe look. All black, leather and booties – does it get better than that? Finding the perfect moto leather jacket is no easy feat. For me, the fit had to be perfect – I often find leather jackets to fit a little short – so when my friend discovered this textured one from Scotch & Soda, I instantly accepted that we’d be twinning upon every outing and went for it.

Since the spring is taking its time to warm up, I’m all about the dress and booties. As you can expect, choosing booties over sandals is a simple decision for me.

THE GOODS: Khiel’s Ultra Cream

When people ask me what I’m wearing, I tell them, Kiehl’s. Well not really, but I’m going to start.

Mar2_Kiehl's Ultra Cream

I find it hard to put my finger on the best moisturizer for my skin, often transitioning back and forth from tried and trusted drugstore products to higher end brands. I’ve been a Cetaphil user for some time – a brand that’s a known classic for a simple, no-fuss moisturizer. As a high-end substitute, I’ve opted for Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream. I’ve always trusted Kiehl’s and the Ultra Facial line is perfect for skin that isn’t too picky, but still looking for moisture. After only a couple of days using the moisturizer, paired with Kiehl’s toner and SPF, my skin was softer and more hydrated. Using this as a day cream, though good for all day, I still continue to use a night favourite, Origins’ Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask.

Falling back on familiar brands makes all the difference. Even if I stray here and there to try a new product or regime, returning to what you know brings satisfaction and results, a place my skin has found home.
