Pinterest Picks: My 2017 Summer Style

Last year I uploaded a post Pinterest Picks: My Style and I was overwhelmed with the great feedback! As summer is in full swing I thought I would share with you some of my favourite summer outfits I have come across while on Pinterest and possibly give you some inspiration for your own summer style. As you will see below,  light-weight shirts, dresses, white denim jeans, and off the shoulder tops are some of my go to pieces this summer. I love that I can feel stylish and beautiful while remaining comfy!

I would like to mention that I do not own any of these pictures and the links to their original posts can be found on the 'My Style' board on my Pinterest.  If you have not already, I would love a follow so I can see what you have been pinning lately!



Father's Day Gift Giving Ideas


HELP! Father's Day is right around the corner, just a few days away and if you are like me, you are struggling to find the perfect gift! I love to give gifts that can be used daily and will not go to waste but are still thoughtful and considerate.

I was recently approached by Top Men Shavers to take a look at their Father's Day Gifts and I fell in LOVE  with their gift sets. I had no idea how many different options there were and how little I knew about shaving! If you are struggling to find that perfect gift, I would highly recommend checking out their article!

To any Father's out there, including my own... Happy Father's Day! xo

Flirty Fall Essentials

When I was invited by Adore Me to create some flatlays featuring my favourite fall pieces to say I got giddy was an understatement, they are a company I adore and are constantly creating beautiful pieces I'd love to add to my wardrobe.

For those who may not be familiar with the brand, Adore Me is a women's intimates company that sells its products in stores and online through a monthly subscription service or stand-alone products. Adore Me's mission is to encourage, inspire and recognize body positivity and confidence. To get some inspiration for my flatlay I was went straight to the Adore Me Instagram Page, their Pinterest and their #flirtyfallflatlay on social media.

Like many others, fall is a time I like to remain comfy and cozy, here in Eastern Canada it can get quite cold and staying warm is essential. An idea I love is pairing a comfy sweater with a cute bra or bralette and adding my favourite leggings, blanket scarf and riding boots to create the perfect fall outfit!


Now, as many of you may know with the lacking blog posts, fall is an insanely busy time for me, with endless assignments, midterms and extra hours at work (I know many can relate to this), the best feeling is coming home and changing into something comfortable I can relax and unwind in. Adore Me has an amazing activewear section that is perfect to suit all my needs... and I kid you not, I want to buy all of their pretty, pretty pieces!



Although this is not a sponsored post, I highly recommend you look into Adore Me and browse their beautiful collections, they will not disappoint! NOW, after showing you some of my favourite pieces I love to wear in the fall, I would LOVE to know what YOUR go to flirty fall essentials are!

OOTD: Girls Night Out


I don't get out as often as I would like, but when I do this is my favourite go to outfit! It is perfect for a night downtown with your girlfriends or catching a drink with the special someone in your life!

This bodysuit and skort is perfect combination for girls like me as I still want to feel sexy, yet not reveal too much while doing so. There is nothing more frustrating than being self conscious all night and pulling at your outfit making sure everything is covered and fitting properly.


Necklace: Forever 21
Bodysuit: Dynamite
"Skort": JC Penney
Heels: Steve Madden

What is your favourite outfit to wear on a Girls Night out? 

OOTD: Summer Romper





Rompers are one of my favourite, go to outfits for the summer! Super cute, easy to style and require little to no effort, I highly recommend you all have one in your wardrobe!

If you follow me on Instagram or are up to date with my recent blog posts, this romper may look familiar as it was featured in my August Favourites. Purchased at Dynamite, the army green color of the romper showed off what little tan I have left and the beading along the chest gave it a feminine, elegant look. What I love about this romper is that it can be dressed down for running errands, or can be dressed up for a night on the town with friends! One of the best purchases I have made all summer!


What was your favourite OOTD this summer? I would love to know in the comments below! xo
