Zara Check Dress

Sept 2017 - 2 Looks Zara Check Dress - Cover.jpg

Zara has been clearing out their summer pieces over the last little while and I must say, they honestly have the best sales! Usually, when the sale starts, the sizes are all available but it quickly gets picked up by those who keep an eye out for their seasonal sales and the sizes run low as you are going through the pages online! So if you see something you like, don’t even think twice and pick them up first, you can always return them later. That’s another thing I like about Zara, their return policy and even their mobile app are both so seamless.

As I was returning a couple things back at the store, I didn’t have the intention to shop some more at the time but I saw this loose flounce dress sticking out of the mangled clothes racks (as expected during their sale season). I took a quick glimpse at the price tag and saw that it was less than $20 so I couldn’t resist! This is also perfect for the cooler weather that is right around the corner. I can wear this with tall boots! I really like these types of short, loose flounce dress. It looks great with all different types of shoes and it’s also super flattering. See how I styled it below in two different ways that are great for a day to night look.

Love the details on the back and sleeves – they give so much more style to the dress.

2 Looks: Summer Floral Dress

Sept 2017 - Zara Floral Dress - Cover.jpg

Wedding season is wrapping up for me and I’m finally getting a moment to take a break. This year has been a busy one, I had the honour to be in the bridal party for 3 of the 4 weddings that I attended. I will share with you my experience and photos from all 3 weddings once the professional photos start rolling in! Just in August, I went to an intimate wedding for a good friend that I have known since my elementary school days. I had such a great time and celebrated their marriage with a bunch of my friends.

I bought this floral Zara dress for the wedding and had to fight off the urge to wear it before the wedding. See how I put together the look for the wedding and also how I would dress it down.

Look #1: Wedding Getup

I paired this bold, floral dress with nude strappy heels and a peach coloured jewelled necklace so that it adds a nice touch to the dress without competing with the print.

My Obsession Monday: Polka Dot Dress

My Obsession Monday - Zara Polka Dot Dress.jpg

Spring is finally here! I’m so excited for the warm weather, it’s been tough transitioning back into the cold weather ever since my Bali trip. You’re probably wondering why I haven’t shared any photos on my blog yet but I promise you they’re coming! This year has been hectic with work, weddings (I’m in 3!) and bachelorette trips – it’s making this year fun but leaving me with no time to blog.

Anyways, back to this polka dot dress. I absolutely love the look, it’s such a perfect transition piece. The viscose fabric is light and airy so you can layer it or wear the dress by itself. Since the weather is still chilly in Toronto, I’ve been pairing this with tights and boots while accessorizing it with a scarf for extra warmth. For when the weather warms up, I would wear this dress with a pair of light-coloured sandals and summer hat to break up the black. I’m going to be honest, I was skeptical at first about the polka dots as it’s not a print that I own but the cutting and flow of the dress sold me! I loved it even more when I tried the dress on.

Tights: Rachel’s Box – I got a chance to try a few pairs of tights from Rachel’s Box and I love the quality and fit. I wear these Black Sheer Tight the most, they’re sexy and comfortable. What’s also great about these tights is that you can get a subscription, first complete the style questionnaire as the tights are pre-selected based on your style and then choose the frequency of the delivery.

Shoes: Aldo – I bought these boots last year but these Aldo Jeffres Boots are very similar!

Weekend Style: Earth Tones

Happy Saturday!

The weather is so beautiful throughout this week and it’s best to soak up the sun before the rain tomorrow. I wear a lot of heels to work so on the weekends, I try to give my feet a bit of rest and wear flats. Earth tones work really well together and you can see in this outfit, I mixed in khaki greens with neutrals and paired it with a bit of animal print on the shoes.Earth Tones - Weekday Style - IntroEarth Tones - Weekday Style - Bag
