Hi Fall!

Fall is my favourite. Brisk temperatures (hopefully), colourful leaves, and best of all amazing fashion on the way. There’s nothing better than a chunky sweater on a cool fall day layered over anything. We’re not there yet, but as soon as fall hits my colour palette changes back to black and jewel tones. Yeah! Statement jeans are a must these days and these called to me from a sale rack at Anthropologie. The blouse isn’t new (the horror) but it’s one of my favourites from the colours to the sleeves and it goes so perfectly with the Gucci drivers. Can’t wait for the thermometer to tell me to wear a pair of boots! Enjoy!

Maelove Skincare

So, I’m really not a beauty blogger but this I have to share. When Maelove asked me to try their new product “The Sun Protector” I was excited and nervous. SPF on the face can be cruel. Breakouts, itchiness, etc. This product is a mineral based sunscreen (18% zinc) SPF 30 (non-nano) and is:

  • Infused with antioxidants and doubles as a makeup primer
  • Does not leave you greasy, flaky or with a white cast
  • Made in America and developed in Silicon Valley

I have to tell you. It’s great. My skin didn’t break out, wasn’t itchy and surprise… my makeup stays so much better when I use it! Plus it’s very reasonably priced for a great skincare product. Use it all year long. I know we don’t think about SPF in the months other than summer but it’s so important!

Try it for yourself and let me know how you like it!

Cheers!

One Tribe Apparel

Anyone noticed how much I love kimonos? Or anything BOHO chic? When One Tribe Apparel sent me this kimono I was psyched! First of all, their story is great. Second of all — kimono! They also donate part of their proceeds to help the Elephant Nature Park. How cool is that? Besides all the above, the kimono is so pretty. The vibrant colours and peacock pattern on mine even dressed up jeans enough for me to wear them to work! I love peacocks! I would wear this over a bathing suit or to give a pop to a simple tee or slip dress too. I’m tellin’ ya, these things come in handy. Stop on over to One Tribe Apparel and check out all the amazing things they have besides kimonos too!

Sloppy Pockets

Sloppy Pockets

Versatility. That’s what came to mind when I spied this fun little cardigan. It’s light enough and short sleeved so you can definitely don it over a tank in the summer yet a dark enough tone that it will make a great finishing piece over a long sleeved top of some sort in the fall or winter. Besides, who could pass up these awesome huge pockets? Since it is still summer (I say begrudgingly), I paired it with all white and added some edginess with destroyed skinnies. While I’m loving some of the wider leg pants that are out there these days I still love my skinnies and they allow me to wear those flowy tops I love so much!

Shorts or Pants?

I believe I’ve mentioned previously that I’m really not a shorts person. I own a couple pair but hardly ever wear them. It’s so hot here though! When I found these…. ports (can’t decide if they’re pants or shorts) I was in love. Shorts with an eyelet overlay to turn them into pants. Perfection! They’re even breezier than a skirt and you can’t really tell that I have absolutely no tan whatsoever. I wore shorts the other night and was ridiculed by my nephew for my ghostly gams. Geez! Working girl problems!

Lubi and Lace

Lubi and Lace

Obsessed with this maxi-tee. The see-through lace is summery and pretty while the length and cutouts add edginess. I have also worn it with a white tank underneath, but I thought that for an evening look I would wear a black tank to really accent the amazing detailing of the shirt. I wore black destroyed skinny jeans under though I can also see this really working over a pair of cutoff shorts or even as a fancy bathing suit coverup. I’m really not much of a shorts person; especially not out to supper. Oh…have I mentioned that flatforms are the best thing ever? Height without pain equals genius!

Feeling a Vibe

Possibly the last cool spring evening. So sad. I wish I could wear outfits like this in the summer but I just get way too overheated. I’m always hot. On another note — my pin straight hair seems to have decided that it would like to be wavy. Beachy cool or messy? What do you think?

Of course being the shopping diva that I am I hit the Memorial Day sales, like all weekend — #bloggerproblems! This tunic was on such super sale at Free People that I couldn’t leave it there. It just wouldn’t have been right! And it’s so soft and pretty. The new store that opened near me is amazing and the staff is awesome. I had a great time shopping and trying things on! The brand and the store create such a great vibe. I can’t get enough. Too bad it’s not actually free! More to come — must space out my exciting new finds!
