I said I wasn't going to buy anything for Greece but... Come on I'm sure you've been there, but then you came across that piece that would be perfect for the trip you're about to go on. This white dress from Aritzia is made out of a light, flowy fabric that screams Greece. The best part is it comes with a slip underneath that looks great on it's own when you want to switch things up and I'm really into the simplicity of slip dresses lately. I've worn these with a bit of a heel but look forward to wearing it casually with a flat sandal while I'm away. Keeping things dressy with this look I've layered up two Jenny Bird necklaces that I'm obsessing over and once again my Nicole Vienna watch that I haven't taken off my wrist. All white is daring but going to Greece without packing white is equally as daring. I can't wait to share this trip with you guys. 10 more sleeps!
...squeeze one in your hair and go surf. Bench just summed up the simplicity of my summer in this adorable Pinetrees Top. Not that I know how to surf but lemons I have been squeezing in my hair since I was a teenager. Come on, who else used this trick to get blonder locks? Bench really has some adorable printed tee's. I would know because I just about own them all. And FYI they're all on sale right now including this one. Snatch one or two for those casual days. I knew I had to take this playful tee to Sugar Beach to shoot. I know that's the 'genere' blogger move but the two are just so damn adorable it worked. Plus, have you ever been because I hadn't before. I'm totally going back with some ice-cream and a date to watch the sunset! White sands and the cutest pink umbrellas, LIKE HELLO?! I hope everyone has been enjoying their summer so far! xx

I want to take a minute to chat about bullying. Earlier this year I was contacted by The Canadian Safe School Network, a national, not-for-profit charitable organization who's focus is to create awareness to reduce bullying and make communities feel more safe. Not too long ago they launched a campaign called #StandTogether, where together we CAN stand up, speak out and put an end to this problem. Bullying is something that has always existed on the playgrounds unfortunately and now we also have cyberbullying to worry about. I often think about how difficult it must be as a child today and how it only must be getting worse so it really warms my heart that people are going out of their way to do something about it. The Canadian Safe Schools Network has partnered with YoSox where they came up with four fun printed socks making a statement with the message 'Stand Together'. With every pair of socks purchased, YoSox is donating a portion of the proceeds to CSSN to help fund anti-bullying programs for youth. I think it's really important now with school out that we still come together to make this message loud and strong to keep the positive momentum going. Over half of all teens have had at least one negative social networking experience, while an alarming 33% of students who are bullied online report symptoms of depression. This needs to come to an end. Help support, send a message and put an end to this!

Shocking, I'm back in my white J Brands. But we've already covered those in my last post so we will move onto my other muses. My love affair with off the shoulder tops is getting out of hand. This romance started two years ago when I found this one from Free People (still my favourite and most talked about). This style is beyond romantic for this time of year. Even though these tops offer quite a bit of coverage it does bare the chest in a tasteful way, the kind I'm into. It leaves enough appeal to create that same intrigue yet you don't have to feel naked. Something about shoulders and collarbones I find so sexy making this style one of my absolute faves. Now that this style is trending way harder from the first top I bought my collection has grown to an unhealthy amount. Blue seems to be the dominating colour and when I saw this one in particular I knew I was in love yet that voice of reason in my head reminded me I had to walk away. As you can see I ended up NOT listening it and took it home with me anyway. Oops! This time I'm done... The other part of my outfit I want to point out are these super chunky wooden heels from Le Chateau. K, I freaking love these guys. I actually looked at them and thought to myself 'do I'? Out of curiosity I slipped them on and just thought they were so cool. AND STABLE! I can walk for days in these pups. Who WOOD have thought. lol (sorry) They are something different from what I have in my ever-growing shoe collection so it made me feel less terrible about bringing them home. I can't wait to see more variations of this earthy detail hit the shelves. Is this trend something you could see yourself wearing on your feet?

Happy summer beauties! Thank goodness it's arrived, I am so ready to live under the sun and get bronzed. Recently I did a major purge and realized I haven't updated my white denim in over 5 years, which is pretty impressive if you think about it. I decided on these J.Brands that I'm pretty obsessed with. They have the right amount of rips, a bit of give, my ass looks fantastic and I'm trend struck by raw hems. They are perfection in my eyes. I've also stumbled upon 'THE' bodysuit. The neckline is flattering, slightly dropped sides and a great strappy open back perfect summer. And yes it has buttons on the crotch making going to the bathroom a breeze. Pairing up these two pieces I felt it needed a belt to break it up. I honestly love belts. I really feel they polish off a look. Having a classic simple black belt is an essential everyone must have in their wardrobe. If this is something you are missing then you can shop the one I'm wearing by Brave Leather. Today's look I've also accessorized with one of my favourite newest additions: my watch by Nicole Vienna. I introduced this piece to you in my last post and I'm absolutely smitten by it. It's so sleek and sexy and complements a classic look such as this flawlessly. I think this black and white look just might be my go-to this season.
