Summer has finally arrived, which means getting ready is a breeze. Throw on your sun dress, flip flops, let your hair down and smell the flowers.

Of course no summer outfit is ever complete without a pair of sunnies. It’s the ultimate accessory and the icing on your #ootd.  I had my sights set on this mirrored Saint Laurent pair with clear frames from SmartBuySunglasses.ca.  Bonus….they were here 2 days after I ordered them.  Instant gratification.

Whether you are looking for retro 70’s styles, 60’s cat-eye or a sophisticated pair of perscription glasses- they literally have it all.  Use your sunnies to stand out from the crowd all while keeping the rays at bay.  With so many fun, playful options- the choices are endless.

I know I won’t be going anywhere else for my shades, cause Smartbuysunglasses.ca has me totally covered.

Emerald City

a

As my sister can tell you, I pretty much live neutrals, blacks and whites.  She’ll be happy to see this post and the pop of colour!  I got quite a few nice comments around the office today about this little emerald #, so maybe I’ll incorporate a little more colour into my wardrobe.  Big talker, huh?

I’m moving house this weekend! Ahhhh!!!! And one of the few perks to packing up your life (cause it’s pretty much pure hell), is finding things you completely forgot you had. Case in point- this sweater. It’s a shark-bite hem, which I don’t really love or wear anymore, but I didn’t want to get rid of it. So, I took the sides and tied them in the front. Love it. Small adjustment, pretty result.

And remember, your best accessory…YOUR SMILE!!

White Out

First off…apologize for the quality of these photos….but I didn’t have my camera on me and a good outfit cannot be wasted. iPhone quality ain’t that great though…any recommendations of a phone that takes better pictures?  For the days when you are just so fly that it needs to be documented at any cost. ;)

Second off….enter the white pant.  Highly risqué and impossibly difficult to find.  Biggest issue I had when scouring the racks is making sure that it wasn’t totally see-through. I mean, believe it or not- most of them are. And that’s just not a good look. Second is fit, like with any jeans it really is the most important part. These days I have been opting for the ankle length. It looks great with heels, and sneakers and makes your leg look that much longer. Sarah Jessica Parker admitted that she doesn’t wear any pants (evening NYC winters!!!) where her ankles are not showing.  So, I mean- what more justification do we need?

White bottoms can be difficult to pull off, especially with my apple booty girls (hey, I feel ya).  But don’t be shy! They look dope and there are so many different ways of styling them. They work for a casual look and you can dress them up. I just don’t suggest hanging red wine or eating spaghetti when wearing them.  I spent half my day making sure I didn’t sit in any mildly dusty areas…..how emmmbbarrasssinggg!!!  White pants + nude heels = legs for days. And how doesn’t want that?
