I absolutely love how these photos are extremely simple but are so perfectly put together. The cream crop pant is cut at a perfect length and looks gorgeous paired with that orange top. It looks effortlessly chic. 
The second picture too is so simple but resembles sophisticated fashion. The long sleeve silk blouse is a definite must have for this Fall/Winter. It can be paired with a dark denim or dressed up with a skirt like in the photo. And the shoes...pure h-o-t-n-e-s-s.

Cottage Living

I'm finally leaving Van city and heading back to the Island for school. Can't believe the summer flew by so fast. Pretty sure I say that every year though. 
Before I jet off to Victoria, I am stopping at my cabin on Shawnigan Lake. It's my absolute favorite place to be in the entire world. I'm spending a whole week with my family soaking up the rays, lying on the dock, water-skiing, reading good books, eating bbq dinners, and enjoying every minute of being on vacation. I literally can't wait.

Hope you all are enjoying your summer!

Trend Thursday

There's nothing more trendy than being able to rock a bunch of accessories without overdoing it. We're still seeing lots of layering and bangling up this season and carrying on into Fall. I love the way it can totally take an outfit from mediocre to insanely brilliant in a matter of seconds. The extra pop of color and texture adds just that which makes it super hot. 

This particular editorial demonstrates just how to create an accessorized look. My fave look is piling on the rings...who knew?! Also, the different lengths in necklaces are always effortlessly chic.

Time To Get Cozy

On this dreadful rainy Monday in the middle of August, there's nothing else I can think of doing other than crawling up into a ball in a big comfy bed with tons of pillows and soft silky sheets. 

These pictures truly capture what I wish I was doing at this particular moment. 
I could easily get lost in any of those books and would never run out of supply as I am the worlds slowest reader. I've always loved those old fashioned ladders...saw one at an ancient bookstore in Victoria and fell in love. 

Breakfast in bed always is a perfect way to wake up. Haven't had it in awhile and thinking, I might just do that tomorrow morning if the weather doesn't smarten up.

Polka Dot Love

Loving this editorial.

The blouse is timeless (and can be worn with pretty much anything) while the floppy hat adds sophistication and femininity. Also, cannot take my eyes off of those ridiculously gorgeous red booties...the red lipstick ties in nicely. 

Absolute Perfection.

Trend Thursday

Not really sure if this is a trend or not, but as of now I am making it one.
Always always always have fresh flowers in your room or house.
There's something about the scent that is so fresh and yummy.
Trend it is.

Cozy Sophistication

I am in love with this picture for so many reasons.

Even though we are currently enjoying the sunshine and in the middle of summer, I can't help but take a peak into the Fall collections. I have never been confident enough to pull off these over-the-knee socks, but I might just take the plunge this Fall/Winter.  

I think I may even own that particular sweater or something quite similar. Also, heels always add perfection to any outfit (and make our legs look great too!)

Trend Thursday

There's nothing like being able to wear bright colors in the summer. I know my last post was about summer whites, but I couldn't help pass up these beautiful photos about summer brights. 

There's nothing better than having tanned skin and a burst of color. Sometimes it gets tricky not to overdo the colors...it can be a bit overwhelming when not worn correctly. Remember to keep the accessories in the same color pattern or keep the accessories a neutral base. And most importantly,
have fun with it!

White On White

One of my favorite styles in the summer is everything white. I find it so clean, classy and casual. Summer really is the only time we can get away with wearing all white so take advantage of it while you can!

Adding some colorful bangles like these below creates some pizzaz into the outfit.
