Booooo.. Summer is almost over! And we are winding things down into slightly cooler weather. There are going to be cooler days and chilly nights. And before you know it (as all the Halloween decorations are starting to show up!) it will be FALL.

I love fall. Fall for fashion, fall for crisp air. But NOT fall INSTEAD of summer. 

Fall also means my birthday is coming up – yay! Closer to being 30….

 

Happy Thursday lovelies!

Summer has been strange here in TO. Warm and chilly in the evenings, then hot and hot at night…but I sure do love those warm summer breezes…because goodness knows I get a chill when it’s 25+ with wind.

Everything has been good over here, busy and vacations and well just summer life. It is so short lived in Canada as we have a full 4 seasons to go through.

Hope you are enjoying your summer(s) or season wherever you are!

There is something about nice weather. It just makes you feel better. These pictures were from a time where it was still warm out…and weather in the 20’s was not like the weather we have now. Now it feels like Fall weather in the 20’s. I mean I guess I shouldn’t complain, because we are still getting warm sunshine.

But there is something to say when that sun drops, and we are left with a chill in the air. Toronto summers are so wonderful, and I can only wish that they were longer.

How is the weather where you all are at? Is summer really over yet?

Shop my look: Top: Zara | Shorts: Free People | Shoes: Sam Edelman | Bag: Target | Aviators: Ray Ban | Nails: Shellac Beach Babe | Rings: Nicola Chong Jewellery, something I got from Greece, GLAMROCKS Design | Jewellery: Madewell, local store in TO, local store in AZ | Necklaces: Maya Brennan, my Mum’s, local store in Utah

Sometimes you find trendy things that are worth it. I could honestly shop at Target every single day….it is sad. I was there for the Phillip Lim for Target launch, at 7am with my sister. And then drove about 1 hour to buy the rest because we were oh about 30th in line and were not lucky.  Weprobablyaretotallynuts at least some people think we are!

Luckily for THIS Target bag I didn’t line up for this one…and it was probably only $15. Trendy tribal bag – check! 

But what to you is the difference from lining up for a fashion item or lining up for a new phone…or lining up for a video game. It is all the same.

I said I would not do this again…and I may only once…and I will take my sister again.

Thanks for reading lovelies! xoxo

P.S. If anyone wants some Phillip Lim bags, we are selling a few online, as I know some countries out there do not have Target – but at least you know I am a real person!

I just love those times during the early evening where the sunshine peeks through those trees and casts spotted shadows on the grass. Summer in Toronto is apparently not over as we are getting this insane heatwave right now – it’s was 44 degrees outside today!

Ugh. Not impressed with this heat…I mean I love warmth, but not stagnant air. Luckily with the heat comes the sun…and well it isn’t leaving yet.

So keep your fingers crossed that my bday which is TODAY… and my bday dinner…FRIDAY. Have good weather!

Happy Wednesday Lovelies!

My neon shoes…

Top: Club Monaco | Skirt: Target similar here | Shoes: Prabel Garung for Target | Bracelet: Ann Taylor similar here | Belt: Joe Fresh similar here | Nail polish: Deborah Lippman “Girls Just Want to Have Fun” | Sunglasses: Versace similar here

Do you remember when the sister and I headed to Florida for a mini-sister-vacay? Remember when we hit up Target like there was no tomorrow? Well these shoes and that skirt is what we walked away with, amongst many other things.

It seems that tons of fashion bloggers are huge fans of designer anything, especially when it comes to a $39.99 pair of “designer designed” shoes! I am one of those peeps. I have decided to invest in better quality items, but sometimes the trendy ones sneak in there, and the trendy ones will only be purchased with a very low price tag..only. 

Therefore my usual “trendy” hit ups are places like  H & M, Target, Joe Fresh, Forever21. And if I want to spend a little more and probably hold onto them for longer: Zara, Anthropologie, Free People, Club Monaco,  Mendocino..along with some really cute small boutique like stores.

So this my friends is a trendy piece, and they are seriously neon and pretty darn great!

Nothing like a maxi

Jean Jacket: Joe Fresh (kids) | Maxi skirt: Old Navy | Sunnies: Joe Fresh | Lipstick: Boots No. 7: Strawberry Delish

This past week I mentioned that I was going to pick up my lovely sister! She went to South America and back! Mind you it was fall/winter there. So there was no heat wave like we have recently had here in Toronto. Well I am beyond happy to have her home! She is quite shrill (her loudness of her voice). And order is restored to our house.
It is wonderful!

On a side note, Maxi’s are super hot this season. And I was trying to “maximize” their potential (hahaha too funny). Sorry that was me being a nerd. But I love how they move, they breathe, you can dress them up or down… and they hide all the leg hair you have underneath (hahaha poor bf).

Happy Monday my lovelies!
