BEST IN BLACK

I think “Best in Black” is my new favourite quote. Mostly because my entire wardrobe is black. So when I first laid eyes on this shirt I literally had to get it ASAP. Which I did as soon as I tried it on. Graphic Tee’s are a great style basic to have in your closet because it can literally go with anything. I know it has been a while since my last post but I have been busy working. I hope to get back on my weekly schedule of posting every Monday!

10 SUMMER MUST-HAVES

Summer is in full swing and you have probably already built your summer wardrobe and only buy a few pieces here and there but I am here to tell you it is never to late to build your perfect summer wardrobe. So here it is, the ultimate list of 10 items to have to build the most stylish summer closet…

                                         1. light wash, distressed denim shorts
                                         2. romper &/or jumpsuit
                                         3. bright wallet/bag
                                         4. stacks of beaded bracelets
                                         5. peep toe sling backs
                                         6. oversized button down shirt
                                         7. cutout crop top
                                         8. skate shoe sneakers
                                         9. graphic tee  
                                        10.circle skirt

The great thing about this list is that every.single.item can be worn into the fall/winter season. AND every single item on this list can be mixed with other pieces on the list. What I am trying to say is that this list is the queen of all ‘must-haves’ lists.

********ALWAYS ADD YOUR OWN STYLE TO THESE ITEMS********

**be yourself and don’t dress for anyone but yourself**

When life hands you lemons…

Well, you saw the picture. When life hands you lemons, grab the tequila! The ultimate saying for summer parties, why just drink boring lemonade?? Whenever I wear this dress (Dynamite, $44.90), I feel so refreshed and summer ready. Which I better be, because Summer is already in full swing. Although this dress does have a 60’s housewife feel but that is okay because that also means classy and sassy. I recently bought the shoes as well (Call it Spring, $20), yea I know, A MAJOR STYLE STEAL. AS IN B-A-R-G-A-I-N. The many ways to rock this style is on its own, with an oversized cardy, a blazer or if you want to dress it up for a night out, rock it with a leather jacket (fake leather please!).

On a final note, tomorrow is Canada day, and i’ll be making sure I am wearing the best style. Will hopefully be doing a post about what I was up to and what I wore.

What’s in the Bag??!

What is in your summer bag? Lip chap, money, sunglasses, receipts from that bar on the beach…. That is probably what is in everyone’s bag during the summer. Summer means bright colours, sun and Starbucks (well Starbucks is a year round necessity but I mean coffee fraps, right?). Summer is a time to go the beach..everyday; go on a road trip with your girls or even just exploring the little shops downtown. There are so many great things to do during the summer so you need to have a well packed bag, all the time. In lou of it officially being Summer, I went on over to Polyvore to help guide us ladies on what should be in our summer bag, at all times.

I am really loving bright colours this season because tbh, it makes me looked tan and it stands out. Hot pinks, bright blues, pumpkin oranges, lime green.. they are all great colours to add to your accessories this season. The bag I chose for summer is a ‘bucket bag’ because it is so stylish and versatile yet it can literally carry anything and everything. It can fit all you need for a day at the beach or just your wallet and keys for going downtown with your girls.

I am literally obsessed with skulls so when I found this little coin purse, it was so tough yet so chic and feminine. It can also double as a really small clutch just incase you don’t feel like carrying your bag around. A few months ago I went into Kate Spade for the first time and fell in love with this bright pink wallet (still haven’t bought it yet). So since it is the right colour for Summer I may have to go out and buy it.

In the beauty department there are a few essentials that should always be in your bag; mini vaseline lip care, Lush lip scrub (great for exfoliating lips, removing dry skin and leaving lips smooth with a great taste), bright matte lipstick (so it stays on all day), face powder (just because Summer is hot and your face will show that… I am talking about that damn shine!), your fav perfume (to make sure you smell good all day and all night, duh) and finally we need to protect our skin so make sure you have a small bottle of facial &/or body sunscreen. Don’t forget to protect those eyes and always have a pair of sunglasses (my fav this season is the thick black trimmed, cat eye style).

I think it is a good idea to keep a notebook and pen in your bag, you may want to remember things you did that day, add to your ‘things to do this summer’ list or just doodle while lying on the beach. I recently bought my own notebook because I want to start writing my own fashion book.

Last but certainly not least, you need some money!! Nothing is free.. waw waw wawww. So make sure you have some cash on you or a debit/credit card. They always come in handy for impulse buys. Another key card to have is your Starbucks card because lets be real here, getting an iced coffee is just as important as brushing your teeth.

Weekend Festivities

SO, I have just started settling into my house in Toronto and getting into my routine. I still have soooo much yet to do and explore. Like go to the Fashion District on Queen St W and check out all the vintage and used clothing stores. I have been looking online and they all look so amazing So that is on the top of my list of things to do this Summer. I have been working a lot lately and this weekend was a great time to get out and do things.

To start the weekend off right, my house mate and had a Mexican/Puerto Rican inspired theme night and made tacos and Pina Coladas. It was a great way to begin my weekend of festivities. And since the summer weather is making its debut, it was a perfect combination. I was working Saturday but of course I had time to take an OOTD photo, I mean your day isn’t complete if you didn’t take an OOTD pic, amiright? Living in Toronto means taking transit…everywhere, and it just so happens that a Starbucks is right beside the bus stop… so clearly I have to get a coffee. It is basically a sin to walk by a Starbucks and not get a grande iced coffee with soy milk.

Last but not least, Sunday was an amazing day because I was lucky enough to get into the MMVA’s. Which if you don’t know, is the Much Music Video Awards; they had a ton of celebs including Colton Haynes, Ariana Grande, Ed Sheeran and of course the most inspirational and biggest young fashion icons KYLIE AND KENDALL JENNER. YES I SAW THEM LIVE IN THE FLESH LIKE 30ft IN FRONT OF ME. Oh man, I literally could not stop staring at them because they are so gorg. Probably one of the best nights so far living in Toronto.

Summer Fascination and Some Inspiration

  

IMG_8275 

So basically all I did was search #summer on some of the most popular social media sites (tumblr, instagram, weheartit…) and picked the most inspirational pics that make me want to lay under the hot summer sun and daydream until my heart’s content. I hope these pics will want you to do the same and remember never stop dreaming because everything you can imagine is real.
