Guys. I have a problem. I have been doing WAY to much shopping lately so now it is time to cool it down. But luckily I have bought myself some awesome pieces that are now in my wardrobe which I am super happy about.

One of those items being this super duper cool jacket from Oak & Fort. If you don't know the brand I suggest you check it out. One thing I love about this brand is that it is Canadian. It is great to support people from our home land especially when they are on top of their game and creating some amazing products. I went in there a couple weekends ago and found this amazing jacket and earrings which were both on sale. I got both of these items for $100, what a steal!!! This jacket is such a special piece and to find such an item at a great price is just amazing. I am super happy with my purchases so I just wanted to share it with you.

I know not everyone is into fashion like I am or necessarily cares too much. But I think there is a desire in everyone that they want to look good...right! So I thought I would share just some quick and simple tips that you can apply to your looks now.

1. When in doubt; White tee and jeans. There is nothing as understated yet perfect as a simple white t-shirt and jeans look. Just add a cute pair of shoes (can be whatever) and a blazer or leather jacket and your set.

2. Size Matters - If you have parts of your body that you want to hide, make sure you do it properly. People with a bit of a tummy tend to wear oversized things that drape over but that will actually just make you look bigger and frumpier. Wear a bottom that cuts you off at your biggest point to create the illusion of a smaller size. If you have thighs (like me) find jeans that are a wider, straight leg so your legs appear thinner.

3. Matchy matchy - If you have trouble with not knowing what looks good together then match colours is a fail safe. Wear accessories of the same colour, like if you have gold earrings on the the rest of the jewelry should be gold as well. If you have a black bag, then wear black shoes. Keep the colours simple. White, black, denim, grey are great for basic pieces that match everything.

4. Tailoring. Another great way to look more sophisticated and put together is if the item fits you like a glove. There is nothing wore then people wearing clothes that are way to big or small on them.  Be realistic of your size and dress accordingly. If you are petite and denim is always to long then roll up the bottom or even get it hemmed. For women with bigger chests, make sure your bra fits, go get sized. A bra that fits and keeps the girls up will make everything look better on you and remember that you will have cleavage anyway so no need for low cut tops.

5. Have fun with it. Cliché, I know. But for real, maybe you haven't cared because you didn't think you should or because it was too daunting but if you have fun with it and you feel good in something you are wearing it will totally boost your confidence which we all need from time to time. Also there is nothing wrong with putting time into yourself and investing in pieces that make you feel good. Feeling good about yourself is the most important aspect of it all!!!

I hope that this helps someone and if it does, please let me know. Happy weekend everybody!!

GOOD MORNING. Now that Summer has finally arrived I have been able to pull out my Summer wardrobe and start wearing tanks and shorts. I think one of my favourite tops this year will be this Aritzia Wilfred Free camisole. I love the colour (which matches an item you will see shortly), the straight across neck line and that it is double line so I don't have to worry about a bra, which is exactly what you want in the heat during Summer.

Another piece will will definitely be a Summer staple in my closet  is this netty bag from Clare V. which I am still obsessed with. It is literally the perfect bag during this time of year. I plan on taking it too the beach with me and to the famers markets...how chic!! I bought this one at a fantastic shop here in Vancouver called One of a few in the heart of Gastown which sell amazing designers and brands like Ganni (where I got this tee as well), Rachel Comey, Maryam Nassir, Assembly and Rodebjer to name a few.

For the rest of the outfit, these are all old summer pieces that have been with me for some time now but are still perfect items to throw on in the heat. We will talk shorts in a separate post. Stay Tuned.

ALSO big shout out to my boyfriend who celebrates his birthday today. I love you!!! We are going whale watching so watch my Instagram today to keep up.

My whole summer weekend look is pretty casual and usually just a variation of the same look in different ways.

1. No make-up - In the Summer time I can barely be bothered to wear make-up. If I do wear anything it not much more then tinted moisturizer, bronzer and filling in my brows. Comfort is key!!

2. Denim - This is not just for weekend but for some reason denim just feels so good on the weekend. That relaxed feel is just so perfect and I love to feel put together yet laid-back.

3. Braless - There is nothing better then that feeling my freedom!!!

4. Favorite pieces - There are certain pieces in my wardrobe that I don't wear to work or on a regular basics so weekends are their time to shine. Currently my favourites are my new Ganni tee, Acne Studios cony boots, as well as these pieces shown above which are staple weekend pieces.

Do you have certain outfits and items just for the weekends?

So as you have noticed, whether that is just right now or if you have been following my social media aka Instagram then you have seen these new black booties that have entered my wardrobe. This is another one of those items that I am super proud to call my own, if you read my Cherry Bomb post then you will have a better idea of what I mean by that.

But anyways, I wanted to tell you a bit about these because I know that Acne boots are one of those things that are on everyones wish list and if your like me these are my first pair so I had no idea what to expect for fit and comfort. SOOOO...here is the dealio!!

THEY WILL KILL YOUR FEET AT FIRST!!! Literally I only wore them a few blocks because of that exact reason. I didn't want to wear them long if they were going to hurt since I had never worn them before. They gave me the BIGGEST blisters and popped all in that short time span and my feet were out of commission for a while (only wore mules after that)

BUT. I promise it will get better. Mine are not fully worked in yet but they are getting there. The second time I wore them I was able to wear them for much longer before it started to hurt. I don't know if this helped but I did try to wear them in a bit just by moving them around with my hands. Because the leather is very nice sturdy leather so it will take a while for that to give a bit. But wear I find it really tight (in the heel area) I tried to stretch it out a bit (not sure if it actually helped but).

But oh matter what, these boots are totally worth it. They are beautiful and a wardrobe staple. You can not go wrong with these and I am so happy to have them in my designer wardrobe. Also a bonus is that you get a cute pink box which is great house decor. I also got a pink paper bag, they are both so cute...triple bonus!!!

I would LOVE to hear if you guys are Acne Studios boots and what you think of them. I have also really wanted to get the Jensen boots and heave heard mixed reviews about comfort. So please share your stories with me.

Happy Saturday guys!!!

My new obsessions all in one outfit, basically.

I normally hate the colour red but recently have become obsessed with wanting red in my wardrobe. This new Ganni, a Scandinavian brand which I love, cherry bomb tee is everything I have been wanting in a t-shirt form. Typography, red, bold in an understated way!

The same time I picked up this Ganni t-shirt, I also picked up the cutest and ever so trendy net bag from Clare V. which is just perfect. I couldn't be more obsessed with two pieces at the moment.

I think this outfit is my favourite look I have worn. One, because I really love all the pieces but also because (and I know this might sound weird) but I am proud of the outfit and some of these items. Because...even though it might seem like no big deal, to me it is a big deal to add a Ganni piece like this to my wardrobe. It is a brand I have been following for a long time and have hoped to add to my closet, so being able to find and purchase myself a piece as significant, even if it isn't hundreds of dollars, it still means a lot to me.

....I hope that makes sense. Do you have pieces that you feel this way about?
