We'll go down this road 'til it turns from colour to black and white



Unbranded dress, H&M belt (similar here), ALDO sandals, House of Harlow abalone five station necklace, Boutique Minimalist gold bar bracelet (won in a contest, check out other designs here!)

Now that I own this belt, I can understand what all the hype is about! The buckle design is not only super cute, but functional as well. 

I know that a lot of people would include a 'little black dress' as a closet staple, but I think that the little white dress should get some equal love! It's such a perfect summer piece, especially when constructed in a lightweight fabric, like this dress was. I'm actually really surprised by how much I love this, as I don't normally own or even try on white dresses. I'm a huge stain magnet, but this dress has totally given me the confidence to try and include some more stark white staples in my closet!

Won't see it when it happens, but when it happens you're gonna feel it




Forever21 lace peplum top, Sparkle & Fade bow-back bra, Forever21 faux leather leggings (similar here), Forever21 bead necklace, Balenciaga City RH bag, Le Chateau red pumps

I haven't bought anything from Forever21 in ages, but finding this little gem reminds me that sometimes, it's worth it to rummage through the haphazard racks! The open back on this peplum top means I can experiment with different patterned and coloured bralettes without feeling too exposed. I also love that this piece has a bit of weight to it, so it doesn't feel like it'll fall to pieces in the first wash.

This is where your love is supposed to be



Forever21 tribal print tank (similar here), American Eagle denim shorts, Aerie lace bandeau, Topshop knuckle ring (similar here), Oasap eagle claw ring c/o

I haven't had such a busy weekend in a while, but I managed to squeeze in everything that I wanted to do: a few hours of volleyball, some time by and in the pool, two days in a row of great food at Night it Up, and a bit of shopping after a 6 week ban.

And for a lack of a better segue... I was a bit apprehensive when I first received this ring since it is a one size fits all item, but it did not disappoint! It measures 1.8 cm in diameter and fit my pointer finger perfectly so I can safely assume that it is equivalent to a size 7 for those who are wondering.

A funny story about this ring: when PN first saw it, he tried to pry it open thinking it was similar to my claw bracelet. It took him quite a bit of time to figure out that it didn't have a hinge!

Some nights I stay up cashing in my bad luck


Zara leopard blouse, Lucca Couture scallop shorts (similar here), ALDO Huesca loafers, H&M hair ring (similar here)

I've had this blouse for months, but I've never been able to snap a photo for the blog! The animal head print and the studs are great details, but the thing that actually drew me to this piece in the first place is the shape of the collar! I love how structured and pointed it is.

Speaking of hair rings, after having to draw winners twice, no one has claimed their giveaway prize! I think I may be slightly offended, LOL. I'm not quite sure what to do with the hair rings now.. Should I redo the giveaway, or draw another two winners and hope they contact me this time around?

I remember the first time we wished upon parallel lines



Unbranded tank with cutouts (similar here and here), H&M crochet shorts (similar here and here), H&M arm cuffs (similar here), American Apparel belt

I'm not quite sure what I love most about this top: the cut outs, the high-low hem, or the fact that PN picked this out. He always teases that he has a better sense of fashion than I do because most of the pieces he finds for me end up being the ones that I love the most!

You wouldn't believe the most amazing things that can come from some terrible lies

1. Forever21 swallow-print blouse (similar here), Lucca Couture petal short
3. Banana Republic silk safari tank, Unbranded maxi skirt (similar here)

If you already follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you may have already seen these outfits, so sorry for the repeats! Things have been quite busy lately, but I'll hopefully get back in to the swing of things for next week. TGIF!
