‘Style Through The Decades’ with Glasses.com

StyleHeader

Let’s take a moment to think about style. I immediately think, ‘individual’ and ‘self-expression’. Whether we like it or not, the way we choose and piece together an outfit highlights our personality and speaks loads about our persona before we utter a sound.

 The way we accessorize—especially with eyewear—can completely transform our entire style and complete an overall look. Glasses have come a long way; selection of eyewear is boundless, so style is never compromised. Whether that be eyeglasses or sunglasses, the perfect frame can do wonders for any style and can be used for ‘self-expression’ rather than just an instrument for sight.

Style and eyewear strike a beautiful balance and this post is all about how #stylehasnoperscription. While traveling through Europe, I put together a lookbook showcasing my favourite eyewear from Glasses.com, with the theme ‘Style Through The Decades’—50′s, 60′s, and 70′s style.

Getting #SVMF ready with Topshop

Festival season is finally here and I couldn’t be more excited—Specifically for the Squamish Valley Music Festival happening August 7-9!

Yes, Squamish has an amazing lineup (Sam Smith, Milky Chance, and Porter Robinson to name a few). And yes, it has a great sense of community (old friendships will be strengthened and new friendships will be made ). And yes, the food is fantastic (festival food has no doubt evolved). But, one of the elements I’m most looking forward to is festival fashion! Continue Reading

Pool Days

These are what my last 5 days looked like, minus the ‘feeding myself grapes’ part (it was more like Noah throwing grapes at my head).

This swimsuit is my current obsession. It’s TWO swimsuits in one. The top and bottom are completely different brands, but I managed to unearth these two off Revolveclothing.com and they are a match made in heaven. They just happened to both be reversible and the same colour palette–unreal!

P.S. how awesome are these currently trending circle towels? Love the quality; it’s totally a mix between a towel and blanket.

Coco Fennell

If this is Coco Fennell dress isn’t a statement piece, I don’t know what is. If someone walked into a room wearing this number, I’d be like “WOWJKSLALDHNIWOJW–I NEED THAT DRESS”. But, I actually have this dress and it’s hanging in my closet, so whenever I see it, I think “WOWJKSLALDHNIWOJW, I HAVE THAT DRESS”.

It just gives me an immediate jolt of happiness.

Neglect

IMG_0195sm

This gorgeous weather is forcing me to neglect everything that doesn’t involve Noah, Mathew, and basking in the sun–blogging included. It’s so hard to concentrate on anything else! The best time of the year is fast approaching and I’m so excited for the next few months.

OH, and my little fam and I leave for Europe in a week! Woohooo!

The Perfect Fit

IMG_9740xvsm

Clothing that fits every body type? Not always an easy task. I’ve had such a tricky time finding the perfect pair of tall gladiator sandals that fit snug around the calf. FINALLY I’ve found these awesome Aldo sandals that adjust flawlessly (and were under $100).

P.S. Totally in love with Mejuri’s ‘Dainty Heart’ collection…so delicate + feminine! I think I’ll be saying goodbye to chunky jewelry for a while.

Unicorn

IMG_9652xvsm

With my changing hair, comes forgotten extensions. Brown, pink, purple, blonde, blue, coral–I have extensions just laying around that will never be used again. Or so I thought.

Found an awesome way to become a unicorn with those old extensions, and I’m dying from joy. I’m thinking of doing hair tutorials on my Youtube channel, this hairdo being one of them. What do you think?
