Happy Canada Day Weekend!!!

As you may know I am Canadian and am quite proud to live in such an amazing country. I started the long weekend off yesterday by the pool swimming and tanning for quite a few hours and slacked pretty hard on the sunscreen front which resulted in quite the sun burn. My skin is so pissed off today I don't even want to venture outside although its beautiful and hot. I will enjoy the outdoors tonight watching early Canada Day fire works that are put on in the sub division that we live in. The fireworks are literally in the field next to our house so we watch them from the comfort of our backyard which I enjoy immensely. So wether your Canadian and celebrating this weekend or not, have a wonderful weekend regardless of where you are!

Little Black Blazer...

I had good intentions of doing a fifth outfit post this week of 'how to wear a black suit jacket/blazer how ever time totally got away from me. I swear this week went from busy to beyond insane. I am fairly certain that I overloaded my plate with things I wanted to get done this week. I took it upon myself to overhaul our patio furniture which was a nice teak table and chairs and bench when we first got it a couple years ago. I did however always want a nice stark white set so....with a lot of painting in some crazy hot weather I finally finished yesterday. I spent a good 5 hours or more every day working on it and honestly don't want to see a can of paint for a long time. So with that said I found some great black blazers online and here are a few of my favourites and where you can get your hands on them.

1. Bloomingdales Aqua fitted girlfriend blazer - $115. Find it here. 2. Forever 21 sequin collar blazer - $39. Find it here. 3. Nasty Gal caged back blazer - $68. Find it here. 4. Forever 21 long lapel blazer - $35. Find it here. 5. Forever 21 shawl collar blazer - $33. Find it here.

Much Love....HAPPY FRIDAY!

Black Suit Jacket Number Four....Studded Skulls and White Jeans

I had one outfit in mind when I thought of doing this weeks themed outfit posts and I have yet to wear it. Its kind of like packing, people say "Only bring what you need" or advise to bring one planned outfit per day you are away. I NEVER pack like this, for the main reason of I never know what I am going to want to wear on any given day. That being said I have grabbed pieces for the planned outfit and I always end up changing my mind. Today I chose a relaxed black tank with a gold studded skull and a pair of comfy flared white jeans. (Again with the white ha)

What I am wearing:

Sunglasses - Ray Ban in Wayfarer. Find them here.
Jacket - Black cropped sleeve suit jacket from Dynamite.
Top - Black tank with studded gold skull from H&M.
Jeans - White high waisted flared jean by Mavi in Gwen.
Shoes - Black platform pumps by Qupid.
Bag - Black clutch with gold accents by Tommy Hilfiger.
Earrings - Tacori studs c/o Tacori, Harlings, Style Republic

Much Love...

Black suit jacket number two...Outfit Post

Keeping in tune with my post yesterday, I mentioned wearing 5 different outfits this week while showcasing one main item of clothing. A little black suit jacket. Here is number two in serious of outfit posts. Keeping a blog and showcasing your clothing really makes you notice what items you tend to gravitate to more often, what colours you wear more and I knew this already but somehow seeing it in photos makes it more apparent how much I wear white. (Also how stark white my legs are! So happy the rest of this weeks forecast is sunny skies and warm weather. Hopefully get these legs a tan...)

What I am wearing:

Sunglasses - Vogue oldies (there seems to be a trend of opting for these this Spring/Summer)
Jacket - Black cropped sleeve suit jacket from Dynamite
Top - White basic tank from Vivienne Tam.
Belt - Brown leather with silver buckle by Tommy Hilfiger (best leather belt seriously my everyday belt for the past 5 years its amazing!) Find a similar style here.
Shorts - Light grey casual short from Gap
Shoes - Grey braided leather with cork wedge by Charles Albert.
Jewelry - This is one of my favourite simple necklaces, it was my moms and I adore it : ). Various bracelets and rings.
Purse - Coral clutch with gold buckle
Nail Polish - Wet n' Wild in Club Havana. (Find it here) I am loving this nail polish more than I thought I would when I first applied it the other day, its such a great shade between orange and coral.
