This time around, wearing yet another favourite transitional piece for fall i.e. the universal plaid button-down. As many of may know, I love a good basic. Whenever I’m shopping for new pieces each season I keep an eyeout for the ones that have that special detail, whether it’s in the fabric, print or embellishment, something that really makes it special. This top is a great example of that. It’s not your typical red plaid shirt and what I love most about it is that it’s incredibly soft and comfortable, which is a perfect layering piece for the upcoming season.
If you’re looking to introduce plaid into your fall wardrobe, don’t be afraid to experiment with mixing and matching it with different textures and patterns. You’d be surprised that plaid is one of those patterns that can coexist so well with a variety of pieces. Think leather and denim or khaki paired with a cozy sweater. Just keep in mind that you dont want to go overboard with it either. Let it shine within your look while keeping it a little subtle. xoxo
You may be surprised to see me wearing white as we head into the second week of September, but let’s be real… white is so universally chic. It will be timeless for years to come and can most certainly be worn after labour day (hey, rules are made to be broken).
That being said, I’ve really been loving the high-waisted jeans look as of late, especially in white. They pair so beautifully with anything from tees tucked in, to body-suits to everything in between. In fact, this kind of style helps to elongate the silhouette, making everything look sleek and is one of my favourites by far. It can be so stylish when worn the right way- here are my tips on how to wear white anytime of the year:
Neutrals are such an easy colour to wear (think taupe, tan, khaki, black etc.). They work well with different shades of white and when paired together, really compliments your overall look. Since most of us already have neutrals in our closets, don’t be afraid to put them to good use and add it with your whites.
LAYER IT UP:
Nothing makes a stronger statement than adding layers to your outfit. This adds dimension and creates such a cozy, chic vibe that is perfect for staying warm when the temperature cools down. I love adding sweaters over tees or a long cardigan over a crew neck and skirt.
Accessories are a great addition to any outfit! It really transforms an otherwise simple outfit and adds that special touch of colour or embellishment, making your overall look put together. Another great tip is marrying opposites when you’re accessorizing. Think pairing leather with lace or something luxe with a print; the perfect juxtaposition.

I can’t believe we are nearing the end of summer, where did the time go?! It’s been quite a ride the past couple of months and I can honestly say I am truly grateful for every person and opportunity that has come my way. For those of you that have a dream, don’t ever give up or be afraid to take the leap! When you work hard work and keep pushing forward, doors will open for you! For those of you that have been following my blog, thank you for always being so supportive. I appreciate each and every one of you and wanted to take this moment to say that.
Now onto today’s latest look. This summer has been all about statement tops, especially red stripes or gingham. I know stripes won’t be going anywhere anytime soon as I’ve been seeing more of it in collections to come for 2018. The top I am wearing in today’s post is very similar to Johanna Ortiz’s collection (found here), but is a fraction of the price! What I really love about it is that you can play with the styling of it, wearing the top back to front making it extremely versatile. When I saw it, I knew it was a great addition to my current wardrobe; definitely the epitome of summer ’17.
