Black and White

Jacket: Lauren Conrad via Kohls
Bag: Gifted
Ring: Gifted
Shoes : Payless
Top: American Eagle
Skirt : Artizia

Hello Friends,
I dont know what it is, but i love wearing black and white, even in the summer.  My goal this summer is to wear more brights and colours.  I can do nail polish or accents, but i find it hard to get out of my usual neutrals.  Fashion is all about taking risks right?

Animal Print

So last week I decided that I would buy my first ever black purse (shocking I know) and I came upon on this lovely Michael Kors structured tote/cross body bag. It was love at first sight! For me, if I'm going to be carrying around a black bag, I still want it to be fun and blingy, and I think this definitely takes the cake with that. I paired it here with my old FCUK dress and Tory Burch flats and headed out for the sunshine!!

Maxi Fears

Nails: Essie (lilacism)
Bag: Aldo
Maxi Dress : Target
Sandals : Target
Hello Everyone,
These pics were taken a few weeks ago when I made a trip down to English Bay with a friend.  We had a blast relaxing and walking around in the beautiful sunshine.  I am obsessed with this dress, not going to lie, i wore it 3 times in 1 week!  It's super comfortable and easy to just throw on when its warm.  I had always been scared of wearing maxi dresses because of my height, but it turns out that they actually make me look taller!

Monthly Manicure : Top it off

Hello Everyone,
Today I wanted to feature a product that I really love.  This NYC in a minute top coat is by far the best top coat I have ever used.  It is also extremely affordable.  Like it says, it drys right away, and leaves my nails extremely shiny for days.  It goes on thick, smooth and clean. It can be found at walmart for under $2.00.

These Pics were taken on Friday, when it was sunny.  It was great while it lasted, but of course, Vancouver is back to it's usual rain.  A friend and I spent the day shopping and relaxing at English Bay and Stanley Park.  It was a great day full of laughs!  Hope you all enjoyed your long weekends.  I spent mine working and relaxing at home.

What's On My Wishlist?

Recently I've been feeling very uninspired by my wardrobe (or lack thereof). I'm always struggling in the morning to put something together that I actually want to wear. Maybe it's the fact that summertime is only a few short months away and I still have no clothes to show for it?? Anyways here are some of my summer picks that I simply must have (hopefully they help the inspiration come back!!). What's on your guys' wish lists??

American Apparel, 60.00$

Zara, 79.90$

Zara, 45.90$

H&M, 34.95$

Mossimo® Womens Elastic Waist Skirt - Navy Print
Target, 19.99$

Aldo, 70.00$

Unique Soles for Unique Souls

The other day, one of my teachers had on these great boots from John Fluevog that I had been eyeing for a while. I went in to the store later that day with the unfortunate news that they didn't have my size in brown. They did, however have them in burnt red. At first I was uneasy about them but I've slowly grown on them, and I think they suit me more anyways. If any of you don't know who John Fluevog is, I'd recommend you check him out. He is a very inspirational shoe designer with his flagship store set right in Gastown (Vancouver). His shoes are of the utmost quality and are super unique and fun. Enjoy :)

Hey Everyone,
Sorry i haven't posted in a while as i just got back from vacation yesterday.  San Diego was Great! The sun, relaxing and the beach was exactly what i needed.  I did some shopping, not as much as usual, since im on a budget.  I bought this great watch from Nordstrom, and it was only $18!  I've wanted a watch for quite a while and was so excited when i found one for a great price!  It's time for me to get back into the work mode, and im still very indecisive with what's going to happen with jobs.
