I cannot believe summer is almost over!!! Where have the past 4 months gone? Spending my last few weeks over freedom back and forth between Victoria and Vancouver, sorting out things before school and (gasp!) packing all my clothes up and leaving the summer clothes behind.
If you haven't yet discovered Polyvore, check it out now!! it's an amazing site that allows you to express your creativity, create inspirational outfits, discover new trends, brands, and fellow polyvore users! (it's also a great time waster, if you're a procrastinator like me =P)
Anywho, hope this port inspires you to incorporate some colour into your outfits this fall! I'm currently on the hunt for some burgundy coloured jeans myself.

Loving these effortless summer styles. The westcoast is finally having some warm weather, but there have been weeks filled with rain and cloud. Let's hope our summer has finally arrived!! Because I'm longing for the days when I can actually dress like this.

Rompers are everywhere this summer. Walk through any mall, and you are bound to see these very cute, versatile pieces on display. Rompers are easy pieces because they keep you cool in the hottest weather and are perfect for layering. Rompers also come in many different styles, so find one that suits you (whether it be a tshirt like top, a ruffle-y one shoulder, or a simple spaghetti strap.) The lengths of the bottoms often tend to differ, so be sure to try rompers on before if you aren't comfortable wearing anything too short! Another great thing about rompers is that it can take you from day to night. All you have to change is you acessories. So have fun with this look and experiment with different outfit styles.
Here are some Tips and Tricks on how to wear one of this summers hottest pieces!
For a trendier look: throw on a crocheted sweater over your romper. It will keep you warm on cool summer nights while making your outfit look even cuter. To stay with the casual vibe of the sweater, wear flats or gladiator sandals. Keep makeup simple and pretty with pink lips and a neutral eye. As for the hair? Beachy waves would complete the easy-going vibe of this look.
For an edgier look (and a great transitional look for fall): pair your romper with tights and boots. Top it off with a leather jacket and your good to go! I'd wear my hair straight for this look and perhaps a bright lip colour with subtle smoky eyes.
For the girly-girl: keep your look casual yet cute with an oversized sweater and flats. Adding black tights would also be a great fall look, come September. Wear your hair curly for the maximum girly effect. As for makeup, long luscious lashes and pink gloss will do.
And for the most casual, yet still trendy look: try pairing your romper with a loose graphic tee and neutral acessories. This outfit works because the blue shirt picks up the blue from the floral romper, sticking to the currently popular colour-blocking trend. Mixing prints has also been a fun trend to try, florals and stripes seem to be the easiest to do. Keep the rest of your outfit simple by throwing on a neutral coloured scarf and flip flops! Perfect outfit for strolling around the city or a day out shopping.

Taking a break from reading about Canadian women's history... and admiring these photos taken by (who other than) the Sartorialist. I especially love how each picture emulates a different type of confidence these women have.
Sorry to be cliche, but I believe a picture really does say a thousand words.
I love the fact that pictures tell a story. They capture parts of someone's personality that maybe can't be portrayed in any other way. What I find admiring is how each woman is extremely glamourous; not only in the way they dress or the way they are made up, but in the way they act as well. Glamour is about confidence and being yourself. Glamour is about getting through life, with a smile on your face; ready to face whatever situation may come about.
Hope you enjoyed this random post... and possibly find some inspiration from these pictures.
Ta ta! xo
