Canada Day Outfit Ideas!

Red & White Striped dress
Celebrating Canada last year in Fort Langley, B.C.

Canada’s birthday is less than two weeks away!  We will be on the island camping for the long weekend, so unfortunately in my case, the cute party dresses are going to have to stay behind! I am so grateful to be Canadian and absolutely adore this beautiful country that we are blessed to live in.  I cannot wait to celebrate with my sweet little family and our friends next weekend 🙂

I have rounded up some fun red & white pieces if you are looking for a little inspiration. I hope that you are all having a wonderful week so far 🙂

Bold Floral Dress!

Once in a while, an article of clothing comes along and I know without a shred of uncertainty that my life can simply no longer go on without it! This beautiful pink mix floral dress was one of them 😉 It is conservative in length but adds an element of fun with the open back and slit.  It is super feminine and flattering, which I always love.  In my desperation I made the mistake of paying full price, but lucky for you it is now on clearance!!! LOL

Best Friends Style Series: Christine!

I started a new series on my blog a couple weeks ago called ‘My Best Friends Style Series’. If you missed reading about my gorgeous bestie Amber you can do so here.

My best friend Christine is literally one of the most hilarious people I have ever met! People naturally gravitate towards her.  It is actually super annoying as I am constantly trying to defend my title as her bff… there is always someone who wants to take my place… LOL! Her sense of style completely matches her personality… classy and FUN!  Her wardrobe is a mix of classic and trendy pieces and she is always dressed completely on point for whatever the occassion.

Christine’s Style Staples:

Great Denim

Lots of stripes

Dresses that can transition from day to-night

Accessories: Fun Sunglasses, Delicate Jewelry

Trendy Tops: off the shoulder, tie sleeves, cold shoulder

off the shoulder striped blouse

Christine is our boss babe. She works in human resources by day, so her classy and professional style always carries over to her outside of work looks.  She is seriously the life of the party.  So a huge component of her personal style is work wear that can transition from the office to going out for dinner with a group of friends afterwards, with a quick shoe or accessory change.

I have rounded up a bunch of Christine-style pieces below if you love her look and are wanting some inspiration:

The Cutest Red Pants!

I think it is safe to say by now that I am a huge fan of colour!  I definitely went through a stage where I was trying to be a little more understated and a large portion of my closet was all black, but ultimately that just didn’t last. I can’t help but be drawn to bright, bold colours and super fun prints.  I had to stay true to myself and my own sense of style!  When I saw these pants I had to have them.  First and foremost, I am a dress lover. So I guess for me personally, if I am going to buy pants they aren’t going to be ordinary! I think these fall into the fun category… LOL

They are super easy to dress up or down.  I decided to wear them with a simple tank and heels.  I’m 5 foot 7 inches and they were long enough to wear with a 4 inch heel.  I would say they are true to size or if you are in between, then size down!

Best Friends Style Series: Amber!

I started this blog because I wanted to be able to share what I love.  One of the things I hold nearest and dearest to my heart is my girlfriends! I am blessed to have a phenomenal group of women in my life.  They each have an amazing and very defined sense of style.  I thought it would be fun to start a new blog series featuring each of my girlfriends and their particular sense of fashion.  Talk about where they each love to shop, trends they like and share looks they are loving for Spring and Summer.  I pride myself on being completely authentic and hopefully very relatable to the every girl (like myself!)  I try to keep the clothing and items I link very reasonably priced… things that are actually affordable.  I figured what is more genuine then sharing my real friends and their everyday style.  I’m starting off this series with my gorgeous best friend Amber.  She is one of the absolute gems in my life.  She is as kind as she is beautiful and without a doubt, absolutely fabulous!

Amber’s Style Staples:

  • Coloured/ textured skinny pants & jeans
  • Fitted pencil skirts
  • Heels. Always
  • Blousy, flowy tanks & tops
  • Colours, patterns but absolutely no floral (trust me, I have tried!)
  • Accessories: Fabulous hats, earrings, rings the works.  This girl is always accessorized!

Protecting my skin with Neutrogena

I hope you all had a wonderful long weekend! The weather here was absolutely beautiful and we pretty much spent the entire time outside 🙂 The kids had a blast having a giant water fight with their friends in our neighbourhood and we spent the rest of the time playing at the beach! It was the perfect opportunity to put the new Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen with SPF 50 I was given by Neutrogena Canada to the test.

fullsizeoutput_18300.jpeg

Sun protection has always been on my radar, but recently I underwent fraxel laser treatment on my face for fine lines, wrinkles, scarring and the removal of sun spots.  Protecting my skin has become a huge priority! I was naive in not realizing that even on overcast days I should be diligent in applying my sunscreen, not just the super sunny ones.

I absolutely love this Neutrogena Hydro Boost Water Gel Sunscreen with SPF 50! I found it to be lovely and lightweight, yet completely hydrating, without leaving my skin feeling greasy underneath my everyday makeup. The coverage was excellent and I cannot say enough good things about it.  If you are looking for superior sun protection, I would highly encourage you to give this product a try 🙂 I am grateful I had the opportunity to try this new Neutrogena Sunscreen as it will definitely be my go to for incredible broad spectrum UVA/ UVB protection!

I hope you all got a chance to get out there and safely soak up some sunshine!!

Spotted: the cutest polka dots!

If you have ever seen my Instagram, you will know that I am a huge lover of polka dots! They are so cute and will never go out of style.  I always think this print has such a playful and retro vibe to them 🙂  I have a strong suspicion my Spring wardrobe might be accumulating a few more spots this season…. LOL!

Chambray & Laser Cut Skirt

This chambray shirt is one of my favourite and most versatile items in my closet.  It is so easy to dress up or down.  I love to throw it on with a pair of leggings when I’m home with the kids or pair it with jeans for a cute “Canadian tuxedo” kind of look 😉  One of my go to ways to wear it though, is tucked into various skirts.  I’ve worn it with dressier minis, tulle ballet type skirts, colourful pleated midis and I love it with this white laser cut skirt.

Denim Shirt // White Skirt (sold out) similar HERE & HERE // Tassel Earrings // similar Purse

Such an effortless and fun look!  I have owned a handful of different chambray shirts and this one is by far my favourite.  It is long enough to wear with leggings, actually stays tucked in place with pants or skirts and looks really cute knotted at the waist as well.  The lightweight material is also perfect for throwing on overtop of a sundress during the Spring or Summer as well!
