If what they say is 'nothing lasts forever,' what makes love the exception?

My atrocious tan makes me cringe every time I see it! At least I can't say that I didn't spend enough time at the beach this season...

The CNE always brings back such bittersweet memories. It's arrival has always meant the end of summer and the beginning of school. While I will no longer be hitting the books, I still feel a bit sad that the number of long, hot summer days are tapering off. Anyone who knows me knows that I thrive in the heat, and the fact that it has already gotten so chilly at night is just disheartening! While I may not be looking forward to the cooler weather, I'm definitely excited to see new fall merchandise hitting stores in an array of beautiful jewel tones. I'll be continuing my hunt for a pair of deep, wine coloured pants, and perhaps something mustard!

Getting photo-bombed is always funny.

We start with an hour and we find we waste the day

I own a handful of maxi dresses, but they're always the last thing I turn to when I'm trying to create an outfit for the day. I think it's because I find that they're really hard to style so you can wear them multiple times! Other than putting on different accessories, there's not much you can do to alter the look of one. 

What are some of the ways that you re-style a maxi dress?

The dreaming days where the mess was made




1. Zara silk blouse, Joe Fresh dress as skirt, Forever21 belt

I haven't taken as many photos this month as I had wanted, but sometimes you have to make do with what you've got! These are just a few outfits that I've taken off my Instagram

I hope everyone has been enjoying the last few weeks of their summer!

My eyes on your eyes like Peter Pan up in the sky

Zara scarf print blouse, Talula dolphin shorts, ASOS OTK socks, Burberry rain boots (similar here), House of Harlow garter bracelet

I have been practically living in these shorts since I picked them up at the recent Aritzia sale. They're made of a slinky polyester, which means they're very breathable and perfect for the hot weather. The fact that the 'dolphin tail' is edged in a matching black makes these shorts seem a little more dressy and a little less gym uniform.

On another note, looking over these photos has reminded me that I really need to make up my mind about my hair.. I've been debating the whole ombre dye thing for quite some time, and judging by my roots, it's about time I figure something out! Oh, decisions, decisions...
