Black and cream tweed shorts

And here we are again.. The weekend ! it's a long weekend here in toronto, Monday is a holiday...although i am not really sure why... also can we discuss that this is the last weekend in july! august is basically here which means fall is around the corner. it starts getting a bit colder around mid september so about a month and a half left of summer... and i still don't have a tan lol i just haven't spent as much time outside as i normally do but i am going to florida at the end of august so ill have a tan right in time for fall! lol. For this outfit i wore this cream and black pair of plaid shorts that i got from the zara summer sale, if you haven't gone please go !  it's probably near the end of the same now so you'll get amazing deals haha. I paired it with this black chiffon blouse and as a pop of colour i added this mustard mini purse. i love small bags i feel like it ads a big of luxury to any outfit .... and of course i am already into mini backpacks for fall !  i feel like they are going to be everywhere!

Blue polka dot dress

Hello happy Wednesday everyone ! i hope you are all having a great week!  Here in toronto we are near the end of a  heat wave... and of course all i've been doing is buying fall clothes lol There have been so many amazing sales lately i just cant help myself... how do you say no to $15 sweaters... you cant.! i know.. i know.... i complained all winter and begged for summer, and now that its summer i can't wait for fall... lol. In the meantime i am enjoying summer the best i can with flowy dresses and sun hats. i've been loving this blue polka dot dress, the print its so girly and it being made out of chiffon gives it such a feminine look. This hat is the perfect touch to any dress, don't you just love the bow at the back, it's definitely my favourite part ! below i linked some dresses and hats to get a similar look :)

Summer dresses and patios

To us Canadians patio season is really important, it's rare that we get the chance to eat outside, ( unless you don't mind sitting in the snow.... hard pass..)  while it is summer i try to eat on as many patios as i can, mainly because i want to enjoy the weather, but also because the lighting is 10X better for instagram (lol just kidding... ok..not really..) if you don't already follow me its @carepinglo.  I don't know about you but Nothing sounds more fun than sitting on a patio, eating appetizers and wearing a summer dress.  For this look i grabbed my white lace dress... which i have probably worn 10000 times haha, but every time i wear it i switch up the accessories to make it look like a completely different outfit, i love pieces like that. For this look i added a silk scarf that looks like a water-colour painting, the purple and pink go so great together ! For another pop of colour i added a big gold brooch, now... doesn't this brooch look exactly like a bottle of Dior hypnotic poison !! that's the first thing that popped into my head when i saw it. Brooches are definitely my favourite accessory, i have actually accumulated  a fairly large  collection of brooches over the past couple of years, including some that have been passed down to me from my grandma (those are my absolute favourite)  Whats your favourite accessory??

Sephora store opening party!

Sephora  opened its doors at Oakville place this weekend ! On Thursday night i attended the store opening party which was a night filled with makeup, shopping, and treats. They had these pastries that had mini macarons on them and let me tell you.... they were amazing i could easily eat 100 haha. As for the store it was huge!  definitely bigger than the one i am normally go to.  all the shelves were  nicely organized and clean but i think my favourite part were the black and white stripped columns... perfect for selfies lol.  It was hard to not buy up the entire store.  For my outfit i tried to keep it in theme so i went with a red lace romper... i've been looking for an occasion to wear it haha what i love about it is that the top section had no liner so when paired with a nude bodysuit (or tank top) it looks like you hade nothing on underneath, it's a really nice look. For the shoes i kept it simple so i went with these strappy nude heels and a gold clutch :) look below to recreate this outfit as well as for some of the products photographed in this post !

Lacoste polo

Happy friday ! i thought i would share a casual outfit with you which would be perfect to lounge around in this weekend! i used to be obsessed with polos a couple of years ago and would buy them all the time, i don't really know why i stopped... Anyways... This used to be my favourite polo but can you believe i haven't worn it since grade 9!  The good thing about Lacoste polos is that they never go out of style! and you can buy them in whatever colour you want. i was drawn to this light pink colour because its the most femenine colour and pastels are always fun to wear.  This would be a perfect outfit for hanging out by the water, going to starbucks, riding a bike! Summers in toronto get pretty warm during the day, but it always cools down at night, its always a good idea to bring a sweater with you if you plan to be out all day. I love to tie sweaters/cardigans around my neck because it adds an added touch of preppyness to any outfit.
