My take on the Canadian tuxedo... and yes, I did just post two consecutive posts featuring my H&M denim button-up. I wasn't kidding when I said it was a favourite! And don't worry, that is not my bra you see peeking out there.. it's the famous Talula Noho bustier.

When the seasons change, I always feel an itch to do the same so I said buh-bye to my ombre hair and went for a nice, rich espresso instead. I love the streaks of ash-brown from my previously-blonde ends! I do have to be careful about fading and will probably have to return for another dying session to maintain the colour, but I think it's worth it! I'm also still on the fence about the (almost) middle-split. I've had side-swept bangs since I was 13 (it's a little horrifying to admit that was a decade ago!) so I'm still trying to figure out how to style this new hair. I have a feeling I'll be doing a little snip-snip in the near future, though..

We crave a different kind of buzz

TOBI bow bodysuit (a cute bow alternative here), H&M denim button up (current season here), Brandy Melville Lily skirt, Prada 01OS sunglasses

These three items have been on heavy rotation all summer, so it made sense to finally wear them all together in one outfit! I remember how hesitant I was to purchase the denim button-up a few years ago because I wasn't sure how often I would wear it.. and boy am I glad I took the plunge! It's a bit heavier than a chambray top, but lighter than a denim jacket.. which makes it the perfect piece to wear on it's own or as a cover-up!
