Ice Cream Dream: All New Flavour

fullsizeoutput_8c7

Surprise! I’m back and with a whole new ice cream inspired hairdo!

I’m loving my lavender locks with silver and purple all through. It was the perfect change I needed to bring in fall…only fall seems to have missed the memo! Today was one of the hottest days of the year and we just celebrated the first day of autumn. What gives?

Summer heat meant ice cream treats though! I completely adore this skirt from PlusBKLYN, a cute shop in, obviously Brooklyn, with a full & fun online store. My wardrobe became 110% more fun when I discovered them.

I’m so completely in love with bright colours although I tend to reserve them to home decor far too often. I’m always telling myself, this season I will buy all the colours!

We had endless amounts of rain over my vacation so of course now that I’m work ready… the sun is shining once again. I’m loving this outfit, mostly from Eloqui as the perfect day to night type of look. This will be going into the suitcase for work trips this summer.

100% More Floral

When life gets a little too hectic and you have zero time to blog, you go on vacation!

I wish I could regale you with stories of wild pool parties, exotic locations and a killer tan but since I already live in on of Canada’s favourite vacation locales I spent a week off just enjoying my town and completely winding down.

It was perfection.

Day 1 – I already look less stressed, and 100% more floral.

Pretty in Pink

I’m back!

It was a much longer than anticipated return to OOTD posts but my work trip was intense & then I got insanely sick. But I’m back! And so is SPRING!!!!

I was so happy to get in and see my stylist for an update of my colour. We had a bit of fun with a messy/curly style while I was there too.

Today I’m rockin this adorable, super short Forever 21+ collared dress. I tried it previously with leggings and jeggings but what it was really waiting for was Spring weather and tights!

We Love Colors are everything to me in the Spring and Fall. I have so many colours and honestly always think I need more. This particular shade is Orchid Pink. The adorable saddle shoes were a total steal from ModCloth.

This is my ‘Hi, I’m feeling cute’ look.

Cold Shoulder to the Cold Shoulder

Something has been annoying me; The Cold Shoulder.

 

I thought it might be a quick-to-fade fad but it’s hung around far too long.

Just to be clear, I’m totally fine with how these tops look on others. Here’s my real issues; they look horrible on me, plus size stores are filled with them and they are so often poorly fitted.

Can we please be done with this look already!

Dresses, blouses, tees, jumpers…. I’m so over this look. I want to keep my shoulders warm and when I want to show a sexy shoulder I love an off the shoulder top. Much more sultry…
