Upsize

Depending on where I buy my clothes, my clothes range from XS to an XL. I know that my measurements fluctuate quite a bit, but all in all, I know it’s not me. I remember the days when I refused to purchase something if the size number was too big. Yep, we’ve all been there. If you claim to be a certain size, you’re either lying through your teeth or you shop for all your clothes in one store.
I love anything oversize and baggy so this top definitely fit the bill. I have a few pieces from Free People and I just love the quality of their clothes. It has to be the magic fabrics they use because the shirts wash and dry beautifully with no detectable fading or shrinking. Their clothes run larger so it’s always a thrill when I can put on an XS and still devour a huge meal.

Colorblock Summer Dress





Dress: H & M (old, lusting over these)  | Shoes: Target (similar on sale here)

I thought I would post this one last  summer outfit post because I can't even face the reality of snow outside. So just for the next few hours, I'm just going to sit here and think about summer in all its glory.  
If you asked me to define an easy breezy summer glam, I would say maxi dress with sandals and of course, icecream on hand. Effortless maxi dresses are a summer staple for me because as lazy as I am, I get even lazier when the temperature rises. I tend to not care about my hair and makeup when it gets too hot. I like to think that I've mastered the lazy yet glam look. Fake the glam look by throwing on some colour to the lips and adding some jewels.

Denim Overalls













Overalls: Target | Shoes: Converse (here) | Sunglasses: Zara | Top: Victorias Secret (old)

Anything that's made for comfort and simple wear, this girl's all over it. So when overalls/dungarees came back in fashion, I was super excited. I think it's one of those pieces that you either hate it or love it. I for one, love it!! I can think of a million ways to style these, either dressed up or down. 
What do you guys think of overalls? Yay or nay?

Last Days of Summer











Top: Burberry | Shoes: Aldo (old) | Glasses: Warby Parker (loving these here)

Not even sure where this year went. It's September so the weather has cooled down quite a bit. The only reason I'm glad about summer leaving is because the mosquitos will be leaving with it. It's been one of the coolest and shortest Edmonton summers I can remember. Hopefully mother nature will be good to us this winter.

Festival Outfit Inspiration



Top & Hat: H&M (here) | Shorts: William Rast via Winners |  Shoes: Denim and Supply

I am not one to attend a music festival scene but I was fantasizing about what I'd wear if I was going to one. Despite my lack of ticket and funds to a music festival, here's a festival inspired outfit from yours truly. Easy breezy is the name of the game for me during the summer. I never know what state I'll be in, so wearing something forgiving is a necessity. I spotted this blouse at H&M a couple of weeks ago and didn't even think twice to purchase it. It can be worn two ways, as a blouse or as a kimono top. Now, if only going to work or running errands was like going to a music festival.

A-Line Fit

I just want to mention how amazed I am with the quality of these photos that were taken with my iphone. We usually take the camera along with us wherever we go, but what is a girl supposed to do when we forget it at home? Iphone! My husband was pretty happy that it took about half the time to take these than it would with our camera. hehe.
Anyway, I've virtually been searching for an A-line skirt to add to my wardrobe and couldn't be more happier when a friend gifted me one. I could be wrong, but I swear that this skirt looks good on every woman regardless of shape. It cinches at the waist yet glides away from the thigh area. Can anyone say Halleluiah. It can't be any more forgiving than this!
Ya call me crazy, but I did end up wearing this outfit to run errands. Some days just call for heels!  For an everyday wear, I would pair this skirt with a crop top and a pair of sandals.

Effortless

I can't believe it's August already! I look forward to this time of the year than I do over most holidays. It's a close tie with Christmas actually. August is a full a month of celebration for my birthday along with a ton of other family members.
Anyway, here's another quick post to show my most worn piece in July. I hope you enjoy!
