Well it is officially Fall now and I have been MIA planning our wedding and engagement photos! Let me tell you, there is a reason wedding planning is a full time job! With everything coming together I finally found some time to share my staples for the season right now. I have been very into mixing neutrals and what I like to call the new neutral, blush! It feels so feminine and is so versatile. My favourite way to incorporate Fall accessories into my wardrobe is with a scarf, they will make any outfit instantly cozy. I am so happy to see some similar trends this year with jacquard, checkered and striped styles in stores! I have linked a few similar styles to my outfit above.
I’m a little late on sharing my picks for summer beauty favourites, but I have been busy enjoying the sunshine! My beauty routine has been pretty simple lately! I love nice glow for summer so I apply bronzer along my hairline and cheekbones. This one is inexpensive and has a great natural finish! I love using this brush for bronzer, it picks up just enough product for a natural finish and blends perfectly (I also use it for my foundation!). Add some mascara, brow gel, a pink pout and your ready to go! I use the brow brush to blend the gel once dry for a more natural look. My skincare has been minimal as well. I’m obsessed with this soap I picked up on a whim one day. Not only does it leave my skin feeling great, it doesn’t dry your face or hands out. Once my face is clean, I like to use a vitamin C serum to give my skin all of the goodies it needs! Finally, I love these two creams, they are lightweight, moisturizing and don’t make me break out! Hope everyone is enjoying their summers!
I’m finally getting around to sharing the beautiful images from a very lovely styled session that I collaborated on! Chloe came to me with her idea of this styled shoot and asked me to help out with the styling. I had admired her work for some time, plus the theme was vintage whimsical so I immediately knew it would be a great match! We met with the talented Heather of Orange Trunk Vintage Rentals & Styling and the ideas were flowing! I could not have been more thrilled and am so grateful for the opportunity to work alongside this talented team of people. We had such a great time and I learnt so much! I hope to collaborate again soon!

I am fully taking advantage of the warm weather any time I have a chance these days so I have been relaxing in most of my spare time! That means putting on something that is cute and comfy. The striped shirt is a staple to any girls wardrobe, this one is perfect. It has a lower cut back, they called it a ballerina style shirt, which I love! With cut-offs this is a pretty casual outfit, but add a floppy hat and some cute accessories and your good to go! Also, I adore Joe Fresh sandals, they are super comfy, go with everything and are such a great price!! And for jewelry, lately I have been pretty simple, I love layering bracelets and dainty chains! Have a great weekend everyone!
One of my absolute favourite features of our home is the porch! I have been waiting for what feels like forever to style the area! I knew I wanted it to feel really cozy and comfortable, like our home except well, outdoors. I went with the usual neutral pallet of greige, white, beige with black details. Plus lots of whimsical flowers! I do not have much experience putting outdoor flowers together, but I was so happy with how these turned out!!! We are thinking of adding another whicker chair so we can fit one more! I have already gotten so much use out of our porch and seriously cannot wait for more summer fun in my little outdoor sanctuary! Happy weekend everyone! I hope I could help give you some inspiration for your outdoor space!

Summer weather was in full effect for the long weekend, so we decided to head out camping with family in Mossleigh! It was such a cute little settlement that now serves as a campground. When you grow up in Alberta, there is nothing like being in the beautiful prairies and sunshine! I found this lace lined dress that was perfectly cute and comfortable for summer. I realized I tend to throw on my favourite jean jacket, hat and sandals with almost everything..whoops! I kept accessories minimal but this pretty pearl bracelet completed this look!
My favourite look period is one I feel super comfortable in plus still looks cute and put together! The best way to do this? Comfy boyfriend jeans and a cute tunic work just great! Throw on a great summer fedora and some chic accessories and your ready to go. I love this style of bag, everything is easily accessible and carefree. Finally, I love a good pair of embellished sandals for summer, these have a pearl detail that is adorable and at an affordable price! Thank you for reading! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
It is such a special bond that we share with our mommas, they do so much for everyone so I love a whole day celebrating and thanking them for everything! I had a great day doing what we love most.. shopping! There were some super cute pop up shops of some of my favourite spots in Calgary set up in Holt Renfrew for the special day so we stopped by for tea, macarons and blooms! It was all too cute not share!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day!
Spring is here! This is such an exciting time of the year, longer days, blooms and new décor inspiration! I usually add a few new pieces to update my space every season to freshen it up! Right now I have been totally into greys, blues and mixing different textures. I like to keep our living space as simple and cozy as possible, with a few feminine touches. I was on the hunt for a new mirror to hang over the mantel and I had this one in mind. I ended up finding one on Kiji for a steal! Another great and inexpensive way I love to give décor a new life is spray paint or chalk paint. I have been loving the idea of using more greenery in my decor too! I love the way the space is coming along!

I love the message behind She Is Clothing with apparel that takes an excerpt from one of my favourite proverbs.
“She is clothed with strength and dignity, and she laughs without fear of the future.” – Proverbs 31:25
It made me think about what it truly means to be strong and I believe the strongest people are the kindest. Because it takes true strength to be kind and to be positive about our future no matter what obstacles we may fear. This verse always uplifts me when I need reassurance so naturally I fell in love with this black and white tee. I think that this is such a fun way to stay inspired! Plus display it in a cute and stylish way.
We had some beautiful weather for a moment so I sprung at the chance to wear my new t-shirt and throw on some heels! I wanted to dress mine up a bit but add a few girly touches! I went with some pink accents, a bold fuchsia lip, glamorous sunnies and this gorgeous statement necklace that I have been wearing with just about anything I can. I decided to pair the tee with a textured and fitted blazer to add some shape. Last but not least, to keep things casual, it was a Saturday after all, I wore a comfy pair of distressed boyfriend jeans. PS – I later threw on a summer hat, some leopard flats and a cardigan which worked just fine too! I have linked as many original items as I could or ones that are similar.
Thank you for reading! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, beautiful weather and lovely times!
PPS – Remember to be kind to one another!
