Today is my birthday (my ACTUAL 29th) birthday, and I’m celebrating with the cutest little ensemble.
The dress is the Kate Spade Structured Silk Mini Dress. When I first saw it in the store, I fell in love with it, but I wasn’t sure someone as tall as I am (5’10) could pull it off. Fortunately I was wrong!
I paired it with the sweetest Kate Spade necklace. It’s like the two were meant to go together.
Who’s ready for a party???
Dress and necklace, Kate Spade, shoes are Fly London.
It’s been just over a month since the Altuzarra for Target collection hit store shelves, and I’ve really been loving a lot of the pieces, in particular, the red suit. I’ve worn this to a couple of events already, including Western Canada Fashion Week in Edmonton, and received a lot of compliments.
It’s hard not to feel fabulous when you’re wearing it.
The Target collection is a cheap and easy way to be on point with the trends. Celebs, including Elizabeth Olsen have been spotted in similar suits this season. (Photo from Tumblr.) So in my opinion, definitely worth picking up if it’s still in stock at your local Target.
Suit from Target, top and earrings from J. Crew, sunglasses 3.1 Phillip Lim, bag by Louis Vuitton, shoes Saks 5th Avenue.
Rocking another concert tee today. This one is from the Ryan Adams show at the Winspear Centre in Edmonton last week. It’s still warm enough to wear sandals, and I’m thrilled!
I love the style of this tee! I’m not hardcore enough to wear actual metal tees!
It’s cute with patterned pants too!
Sunglasses by Celine, jacket from J. Crew, necklace from Urban Outfitters, pants from Club Monaco, bag by Louis Vuitton, sandals by TKees.
Wearing a little civic pride with this cute little tank from Bamboo Ballroom in Edmonton. The Whyte Ave boutique has long been one of my favourite shop local destinations, and I love that they’re branching out with their own design.

I’m back after a hard drive malfunction that caused me to lose almost two months of blog posts! In that time, fall has arrived, which means it’s fall gain fashion time! Plaids and ankle boots are IN. This cute little top from H&M is under $30, and it’s so versatile!
I picked up this cute Betsey Johnson tulle covered toque (beanie to you Americans) at Simons and it’s perfect for covering my dark roots!
Fall doesn’t just mean new clothes, it means new colours for your nails too! Red is always a classic, and it’s nice to go a little darker when the weather gets colder. I’ve got Claudette by Julep on order, and I know I’ll be wearing it a lot once it gets here! (Bonus, it’s on sale right now too!) What are YOUR favourite nail colours for fall?
Touque by Betsey Johnson, sunglasses by Kate Spade, bag is Phillip Lim for Target, top from H&M, bracelets Hérmes and vintage, jeans Marc by Marc Jacobs, boots by House of Harlow.
Crop top for a night out? Why not. Keeping with my rule that it has to be paired with a longer separate, and going all black this time.
This particular top has some killer back detail!
Midi type skirts have been a favourite of mine for years because I’m tall, but this year they’re finally trendy! And you can see why. They’re so much fun to dance in.
Skirt by Bettie Page, crop top from ShopNastyGal.com a few years back, Wayfarers by Ray Bans, bag by Louis Vuitton, sandals by TKees, black Puggle is my dear friend and a perfect accessory!
I went to a pool party this weekend, and kept it simple with the Hawaiian Sunset print from J. Crew. The long sleeves on the popover were perfect for when the temperature cooled down in the evening.
The little sunglasses necklace from Marc by Marc Jacobs was my favourite touch.
Hat, shorts and top from J. Crew, bikini is so old I couldn’t even begin to guess…., necklace Marc by Marc Jacobs, sandals by TKees, Ray Ban Wayfarers.
Despite the title of this post, this is a perfect outfit for work in the summer. Most offices and work places will allow a 10 inch Bermuda short, and of course a classic black blazer.
Of course, not all workplaces may be so forgiving of a blouse with a print like this, but I’m lucky enough to work in a place that does! This is the “Vacationland” print blouse by J. Crew. And it’s almost enough to make me feel like I’m on vacay!
Short and sweet. Blouse, Bermuda shorts and crystal necklace from J. Crew, watch by Daniel Wellington, blazer by Blend, sandals by TKees, Wayfarers by Ray Bans, bag by Alexander Wang.
A playsuit is my idea of a comfortable alternative to shorts and a tee shirt outfit for a casual night out. I wore this to a baseball game on Canada Day with a bunch of my coworkers.
It was hot and sunny out, so a hat and large sunglasses were required. These are the Frankie’s by Quay Eyewear.
This romper came with a ribbon tie, but I added my own belt for an extra pop.
Romper by Kensie, belt is vintage Moschino, sunglasses by Quay, sweater from Loft 82 in Edmonton, Sweet Nothings necklace by In God We Trust NYC, bag by Kate Spade, flip flops by TKees, sun hat from J. Crew.
A little bit of temporary patriotism!
With the girls from work.
I love this Lion King tank top from Hot Topic, but I wasn’t really sure it was something I could work into my day to day wardrobe. I guess I had forgotten the golden rule of the season, a statement necklace is the solution for everything!
I picked the J. Crew stone burst necklace, because the colours complement the shirt perfectly!
The black maxi skirt is dressier than leggings or jeans, and is lovely for lunch with friends or an afternoon walk. A denim jacket is a great third piece, and in particular I like the texture on the front of this J. Crew one.
How can you not love this top? I will say that it’s made from cheap fabric that’s prone to pilling, but I like that it was inexpensive because it’s not going to be a classic piece in my closet.
