5 Summer Essentials I Can’t Live Without

POSTED July 28th, 2014

I can’t believe that we are almost half way through summer! It seems like temps went from 0 to 30 overnight and while I’m not complaining, I certainly had to quickly adjust my summer wardrobe and beauty routine to use in summer weather. I’ve pulled together my 5 essential items for the summer weather but would love to know what items get you through a scorching summer?


Chuck Taylor Sneakers, Foot Locker
I often flip back and forth between black and low versions of the Converse Chuck Taylor sneaker, but I’m all for white in the summer months. Paired with a summer dress or distressed boyfriend jeans and a tee, they’re casual and comfort in one shoe – perfection!

Cinique Moisture Surge Tinted Moisturizer with SFP, Sephora

This product packs a punch with lightweight coverage, that perfect ‘dewy’ look and is equipped with SPF 15. Eliminating two steps in my morning beauty routine is a-ok with me!

Denim Jacket, Gap

When you finally find the perfect jean jacket, it’s an indescribable feeling. Whether it’s styled with a pencil skirt and tee at the office or shorts and a tank on weekends, this crucial item in your wardrobe always does double time in the summer months.

Cat Eye Sunglasses, Tom Ford, Sunglass Hut

I may or may not have an obsession with sunglasses… but if I’m going to stick with my tried, tested and true – it’s a great cat-eye shaped frame in black. This pair from Tom Ford certainly do the trick and make quite a statement doing it.

Haute in the Heat, Essie Nail Polish
I am a firm believer on staying on top of your summer pedi. I mean how often do we get to bust out our open toed shoes in Canada?! Whether you’re doing it yourself or headed to the salon, this colour is sure to please!

Summer of Style with Aeropostale

POSTED July 25th, 2014

In the summer months, great style doesn’t have to be complicated to make a statement. Whether it’s the weekend, errand running or chilling at home on a week-night, we love the casual, laid-back style that Aeropostale is known to offer. A staple for denim, comfy tees and hoodies, I recently dropped into the store to find some cute basics but I was pleasantly surprised. Halter crop tops, printed dresses and plaid print pants left me with an armful of clothing that I had to try on. And you know I don’t even have to say it, but the prices are definitely student friendly!

Looks for Dad’s from Mapleview & Crazy Style Love!

POSTED June 13th, 2014

Some Dad’s are easy to shop for (i.e. beer loving, sock needing, baseball ticket wanting Father’s), while others are more like my Dad, who year after year utter the same words, “Oh I don’t need anything for Father’s Day, Dear.”  Although we know and love our Dad’s more than anything, it can be challenging to find them that perfect Father’s Day gift.  Read More
