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!
This week has been unseasonably chilly and it most definitely caught me off guard. Considering last weeks posts had me blabbing on about the hot temperatures we have been experiencing here in Montreal. With this said, I am not going to reflect on the negative but think about the positive; the upcoming warm temperatures this weekend.
Having fun with my style on the weekend is something I look forward to and when the sun is out and the weather is hot I feel even more open to explore my style. Playing around with outfit ideas for the upcoming week and my blog posts really ignites a fire within my soul but I know it’s easier said than done. I understand that pairing bold patterns and bright colours doesn’t always file under “comfort zone” for everyone but if you are curious about having fun with some outfits of your own I recommend trying it out with casual weekend fashion first.
As the weekend is quickly rolling in, I’ll leave you with a casual yet funky take on my weekend wear. Funky and bold patterned top, ripped boyfriend jeans and the staple shoe of the season; a white simple white sneaker.

There’s something about the way I feel when I toss on a simple summer dress. It’s light material and relaxed structure makes me feel free and ready to embrace the summer heat.
A dainty pairing of a summer dress and sandals also makes me reminisce of the days when I was a child and my mother would put me in dresses that my grandmother made me. I would dance around in the yard as happy as can be.
One time my mother had gotten me dressed and left me to play. She was busy in the kitchen, taking her eye away from me for just a short moment. She then realized I was no longer in her sight and she was looking all over for me. Her last thought was to look outside, there I was in a dress my grandmother made me, playing in the long grass and dandelions. This is a picture that has remained on my parents fridge since the day it was printed.
I was born in a small town surrounded by nature and all things green. I truly count myself lucky to be able to have had these kinds of moments as a child. Now a days I have such an appreciation for all the little moments from my past and I will cherish them forever.
To this day… I still love to put on a simple summer dress and frolic outside… sometimes even playing with a dandelion or two.
What’s one of your favourite childhood memories that you will cherish forever? Share them with me if you’d like! I love to hear from you.
