We are currently experiencing a heat wave here in Montreal and I am not complaining. Luckily enough I have access to water sources and all my boyfriends baggy t-shirts to help keep me cool.
Keeping cool often means dressing casual which is usually quite all right with me. Jeans and t-shirts will forever be staples in my wardrobe no matter the season; I feel like the opportunities are endless. Pairing simple basics with a heal or more of a statement shoe is one way to amp up any look.
I paired my current favourite boyfriend style shorts along with my actual boyfriends basic t-shirt and dressed up the look by adding another favourite item, the most comfortable Michael Kors wedges.

How do you keep cool and still dress in style during the summer? Do you have any tips and tricks you’d like to share? Let me know…. you know I love to hear from you!
I completely took advantage of the warm temperatures last week and was loving feeling bright in all my summer clothes. I even have some burnt shoulders to prove it (oops!). Although the past couple of days have been a bit of a downer weather wise… let me remind you that the temperature is only going to go back up!
Lately I have been feeling very casual when it comes to styling outfits and comfort is always on my mind. I have many dresses in my wardrobe that I have worn for more formal occasions which then end up remaining there until the next formal occasion. Thinking about this, I inspired myself to style some of these dresses for a more casual setting.
I paired this bright and floral summer dress from Winners with a plain t-shirt along these lace up Oxford’s from Zara to create a funky yet casual vibe. I felt that adding the plain shirt under the tank dress immediately dressed the outfit down. Also, pairing the look with a flat shoe versus a heel was what perfected the outfit.
What do you all think about dressing down dresses? Do you struggle to repurpose dresses after wearing them once?
Drop me a message! I’d love to hear from you 🙂
