PRETTY STRIPES

TOP | RIPPED DENIM SHORTS | HEELS | LIP COLOUR ( LIPSTICK | GLOSS )

This pretty, striped number that I am wearing in today’s post is definitely one of my favourites of the summer. It’s one of those special pieces because of it’s colour and detailing, not to mention how fresh and modern it looks. The best part about it is that it can be worn multiples ways! If you haven’t seen this top before, it’s so versatile. It can be worn as a blouse, tank or off-the-shoulder, which makes this one a complete and total statement maker.

If you read my blog on the regular you will know that I’m usually a solid colours kind of gal. As of late, I’ve been experimenting with colour choices and found myself gravitating towards a lot of stripes for this season. Yes, even I couldn’t stay away from this season’s trendiest pattern! The fact that stripes can make such a subtle statement, while maintaining that classic vibe, makes this a must-have for summer.
I styled my OOTD with these shorts in a dark rinse along with the comfiest and on trend heels from Geox. What I love most about them is how well they’re designed. Most people aren’t aware of Geox’s design concepts with their shoes. Their patent reduces feet from overheating so you’re comfortable while their collection remains fashion forward and stylish. I can seriously last for hours in them!
What about you guys, do you love stripes for summer? Do share. xoxo

LESS IS MORE

When it comes to almost anything with beauty and skincare, I stick to the ‘less is more’ approach. The less you use, the more you let your natural essence shine through and that to me, is true beauty! I’ve learned over the years to stick to quality products that work and one of the luxuries that comes with being a blogger is having the accessibility to test out some of the hottest products on the market. While many of these products don’t make the cut on here, others have been the kind I have to replenish as soon as I run out. Today I wanted to share some of the select few that I have fallen in love with that will forever have a spot in my beauty and skincare regime:
 
When it comes to protecting and reviving my hair, I always turn to Kérastase. Though I’ve been using Kérastase products for some time now, I was pretty excited to try out their Soleil line after hearing about it’s release. Since using their shampoo, masque and protector I’ve noticed a difference in the feel of my hair after being in the sun all day. My hair is left super soft and shiny. Definitely something I’ll reach for every summer!
This is my staple year round. I am not a fan of caking on foundation and the reason why I’ve always turned to this one is because of how light, but moisturizing it is. It also has SPF and a fair amount of coverage. A win in my books.
One of my main goals within my skincare routine is to prevent acne while keeping my skin fresh and hydrated. Throughout the summer months, I can get dry, dehydrated skin especially after spending hours in the sun, not to mention breakout if I am not careful. I’ve been using this moisturizer for several weeks now and love it’s results! Not only does it hydrate, but what I love in particular is the fact that it doesn’t irritate my sensitive skin. It provides the right amount of hydration while keeping my skin looks refreshed.
This eye cream is everything! I’ve tried many in the past and none of them have held up as well as this one. What I particular love the most about the one from Alumier is how lightweight it feels on the skin and how well it improves dark circles and fine lines. My concerns have always been to prevent aging around my eyes and after using this for weeks now I can say this will forever be my go-to.
Not only does this lotion smell incredible (think citrus and fresh), it’s hydrating and very light on the skin. This one is perfect for everyday and a small amount goes a long way!

NAVY STRIPES.

VINCE TOP (similar) | PANTS | HEELS | CHLOE NILE CROSS-BODY

And so my obsessions continues….meet my all time favourite summer staple to wear: stripes! I am definitely a sucker for a good old striped top, always have been and always will be! I find that as summer approaches I tend to stock up in different colours and styles as it’s one of my favourite pieces to have. So timeless and versatile, it’s definitely something I reach for when I am travelling or want to introduce a pattern to break up my outfit.
With today’s look I kept it casual yet pulled together by adding heels to accentuate more of the details on these pants. You can easily wear this look by adding sneakers and a bomber to keep it casual. No matter what stripes work with pretty much everything and is such an essential item to have in your wardrobe. Love it!
How would you rock stripes this summer? Do share below. xoxo
