A Look Back at June

Tuesday, June 30, 2015


June has come and gone and the only thing that is calming me is that Summer technically just began...otherwise, here comes the cliché: how is it the end of June already!?

In June I shared a ton of outfit posts, but that first pic and that last pic are my favourites.  I picked up a pair of wedges that I had been coveting for over a year and shared some of my Instagram / selfie outfits in a post (with links to purchase almost everything).

The highlight of June was a big birthday bash for a friend mid-month.  The host thought of everything from amazing food, lighting, a wicked outdoor scene and even a DJ who spun the best music all night long.  

I shared my new lace-up heels and bucket bag in an outfit post (from my Bag & Shoe Haul video), got more wear out of that floral romper, shared my purchases from our trip to Italy, and checked out a new rooftop patio with my guy one night.

It rained a ton, I wore my new fave muscle tee and shared how to update your wardrobe on a budget for Summer.  I picked out some new shades (which were included in my 7 Great Styles Under $25 post), got the coolest sports bra (under $20!) and got the new Triangl Bambi bikini.

Finally, something new to add to this month's recap, my June playlist--all my fave songs that I've been killing in the gym, in the car and at parties when I sneak take-over the music.

Weekend Recap: iPhone Snaps

Monday, June 29, 2015



On Friday night I went for a manicure and got this sleek grey colour, which is super similar to a favourite I shared last month.  I had my girl re-shape my nails into a coffin shape and although they are a little short, she pulled it off (she's so good!).


Italy Fashion Haul

Saturday, June 27, 2015



If you are subscribed to my YouTube channel (I put out new videos every week), you have already seen this video.  If not, today I'm sharing my Italy haul! 

These are the items I purchased during our two-week long trip to Italy back in April.  It's a mixture of clothing, shoes and the biggest purchase: my first designer bag.  I did, however, forget to include these slides (you can see me wearing them here) when I was rounding up all my items--oops!
As usual, thanks for watching! xo

Summer Layers, Selfies & Instagram Outfits

SCARF  |  H&M DRESS - OLD (SIMILAR, SIMILARLOVE THIS ONE)  |  TANK WORN AS A SKIRT  |  WEDGES  |  SUNGLASSES

I have had this dress for years and since there are various panels in different fabrics on it, it's sheer in some areas so I used a longer tank to act as a skirt underneath and tied the straps together below the bust (that 'bump' was hidden by the scarf).


Waxed Pants for Summer

Thursday, June 25, 2015


O U T F I T   D E E T S :  SUZY SHIER PRINTED TOP - OLD (SIMILAR, LOVE THIS)  |  WAXED PANTS (LOVE THESE, COLOURED)  |  LACE-UP HEELS ON SALE  |  BAG  |  SUNGLASSES (BUDGET FRIENDLY)  |  NECKLACE

Waxed pants have become a closet staple of mine over the past few years.  They add a bit of edge to a basic black pant and dress them up a little more.  Despite it being Summertime, I still rock mine--in various colours--but lighten the look up with more weather-appropriate tops and shoes.

Silk, cotton and linen are all great ways to Summer-ize your coated denim and adding a lace-up shoe like these or a similar wedge version is the perfect finishing touch.
