Layered Chambray

Chambray Dress - Gap Factory, T-Shirt (layered underneath) - Joe Fresh, Necklace - H&M, Wrap Bracelet - Gorjana, Watch - Michael Kors, Bag - Marc Jacobs, Shoes - Shoemint, Sunnies - Joe Fresh

I don't often ask my boyfriend his opinion on a clothing purchase. I tend choose the times that I do carefully because my boy has irrational hatred of some fashion trends - he doesn't like skinny jeans, rolled up pants, animal print, neons, and the newest one, plastic sunglasses. He definitely has a mind of his own when it comes to fashion! When I bought this chambray dress on the weekend, I really needed a second opinion on it, so I asked my boy what he thought of it and he loved it. So I had to keep it!

I thought I might wear this dress sleeveless for this post, but then realized that this Joe Fresh paisley tee shirt was the perfect item to layer underneath and add a pop of color. Expect this t-shirt to make another appearance on the blog - it's super cute and versatile!

Shirt - Old Navy, Pants - H&M, Belt - H&M, Loafers - J Crew, Watch - Michael Kors, Wrap Bracelet & Necklace - Gorjana, Sunnies - Joe Fresh

I know I'm kind of obsessed with my basics, but you can't really get any more basic than this look. Black trousers and a white top, plus a little bit of menswear with loafers - totally me and super comfortable!

Thanks Kate for the pictures again! Totally loving that last shot!

Black & Ombre

Shift Dress - Asos, Blazer - Vero Moda, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini, Necklace - Expression, Sunnies - Joe Fresh, Shoes - Zara, Bracelet - Orelia, H&M, Hair - Messy

When I first got this blazer, I truthfully wasn't sure what to wear it with. I was convinced that it would simply not go with black, but when I tried it on that morning with my Asos shift dress, I kind of loved it. As much as you can try to plan fashion in your mind, sometimes you just have to try stuff on to see if it works!

Happy Monday, friends!

Photocred goes to Kate :)

A Little Bit of Print

Peplum - Vila via ASOS, Blazer - Zara, Denim - J Crew, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Shoes - Marc Fisher, Watch - Michael Kors, Bracelet - Gorjana, Necklaces - Stella & Dot X2, Gorjana, Sunnies - Joe Fresh

Sometimes, it just feels right to get back to basics. Basics being a good pair of jeans, a cute top and a blazer. I've kept my accessories quite simple as well with a few dainty necklaces, my trust Michael Kors watch and my new Gorjana wrap bracelet I've been obsessed with. I've been wearing it almost every day! .

Hope you're having a good week!

My mood completely affect the way I dress. Sometimes I like conveying feminine in what I wear, and other times boyfriend jeans and a loose sweater is the way to go. Most of the time though, I try mixing up feminine accents with more masculine elements. Here are some of my faves items of the moment who would all be very at home in my closet. Especially that Zara sweatshirt. And that Topshop skirt as I've been obsessed with sequin skirts at the moment. Oh and that gorgeous Madewell popover. And I'm drooling over those Tibi flats. Well, you get the drift.

Breezy Blouse

Blouse - Covet, Skirt - H&M, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Pumps - Pour La Victoire, Bracelets - Vince Camuto, House of Harlow, Watch - Michael Kors, Sunnies - Forever 21

Oh no, it's Monday. I had a crazy weekend traveling around the province with a wedding, and a goodbye party for my lil' brother (who's not so little anymore!). He's going out West to work as a welder, the lucky lad! This has pretty much been his dream all along and I'm so proud of him! Thankfully, I'll still get to see him as he'll be working two weeks on, and traveling back home for a week off.

Hope you all had a great weekend and lovely weather like we did here!

Thanks to Kate for the pictures! :)

Dress - Old Navy, Sweater - Gap, Shoes - Zara, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff, Necklace - H&M, Ring - J Crew, Sunnies - Ray-Ban

Don't worry, I don't actually walk in forests in heels - that would be incredibly stupid. I live really close to a little patch of trees and thought I'd take advantage of the scenery (while gaining two giant mosquito bites) to take pictures this past weekend. This was one of those "nothing is working right" shoots, so forgive me if I look a little out-of-sorts. And in the first picture, I'm actually looking at a squirrel. He was cute!

I saw this little Old Navy dress online a few weeks ago and totally feel in love with its rusty red color. I could totally see it transitioning into fall perfectly, so I gave myself the okay to purchase. I can't wait to wear it with a cream knit, black tights and black booties! If you see something you like on the Old Navy website, buy it quickly - this dress is already gone and I bought it a few weeks ago!

I've hard to remind myself several times that today is not a Friday. Why does it feel like a Friday? The weekend cannot come fast enough. Oh, and Happy Acadian Day all!

White Dress At Sunset

Dress - ASOS, Shoes - ASOS Ponder Heels, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini, Necklace - Gorjana, Watch - Michael Kors, Bracelets - H&M and Unknown, Ring - J Crew, Hat - Smart Set

Can you tell I'm slightly obsessed with this Smart Set hat? I'm trying to wear it as much as I can before summer is over. And unfortunately, it's been feeling like summer is coming to an end. I guess the only slight bonus in the change of season are the gorgeous leaves in the fall. I love fall, but would much rather it be summer year round!

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Fall-ing in Love

Argh, I can't help it. Fall fashion has pulled me in. I'm trying to hang on to summer as much as I can but the fall colors are out, summer sales are on, and the weather is getting cooler. They're all working against me!

I'm trying to keep a mental list of essentials I'd like to add to my closet for fall such as olive colored trousers, a caramel blazer, tan booties... and well, the rest is pictured! Oh, and I'm on a mad search for a tan belt - it's harder than you think!

Chambray, finally.

Chambray Blouse - J Crew, Skirt - Madewell, Shoes - Banana Republic, Bag - Rebecca Minkoff MAC Mini, Necklace - J Crew, Sunnies - Joe Fresh, Watch - Michael Kors, Bracelet - H&M, Hat - Smart Set

I'm sure every blogger knows these basic rules. Don't take pictures in full sun, and don't take pictures in crazy winds. Well, clearly, I'm new at this because I decided to take pictures in both on Saturday afternoon. My sister and I were on a little mall trip and I figured we might as well snap some pictures while we're at it. So if I look like I'm making a dance move, it's because I was trying to make my clothes not look like they're sticking to me. And if you notice that some pictures are in the shade, it's because my sister and I waited for clouds to pass by. I learned my lesson, that's for sure.

I'm finally part of the Chambray Fan Club! Yay! I haven't owned a chambray blouse until last week - can you believe it? I just never happened to find the perfect one - the more I saw them out in the store, the pickier I became about choosing one. Does that happen to you? A lot of them looked too western to me, then I got picky about buttons (I didn't want snap buttons), then some of them were too dark, too cotton-y, it was never ending. When I saw this J Crew blouse on the website during the sale, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. It's structured, yet casual, the color is perfect, and the buttons are simple and cream colored. I can see myself wearing it dressed up or down.

Happy Monday friends!
