After sharing with you my current obsession on My Obsession Monday: White Embroidered Shirt post, I thought I’d show you how I would style it in 3 different ways. You can dress it up for a night out with the girls, throw it on top of a bikini for a resort look or even wear it to work.
Look #1: Night Out
Lace Bralette: Aritzia | Faux Leather Skirt: Zara | Crossbody Bag: Banana Republic | Strappy Heels: Aldo Shoes – I’ve always wanted a pair of Raye heels from Revolve, these two pairs are super cute and they’re on sale right now – Mia Heel & Sebastian Heel!
Look #2: Resort
Wide-Leg Pants: Fashion Nova – I found these Ruffle Tier Pants from AE that are to die for, I need these before I go on vacation! | Bandeau Bikini: Victoria Secret Pink – really loving Spell & The Gypsy’s Hotel Paradiso Bandeau. | Strappy Sandals: I got these Billabong sandals from NEON Toronto. Currently loving these tied-up sandals from Billabong that would be great for kicking around the resort. | Statement Necklace: These are from Zara but a pair of statement earrings would work well with this look too to give a resort look. Here are a few pairs that I like from J.Crew if you are looking for a bit of tassel, colourful jewels or a pop of colour.
Hi lovelies – Happy Monday!
I love the look of embroidered shirts, skirts and shorts for when the weather starts to get warm. It’s light and easy to throw on with different pieces to style different looks. This cute little number has so many great details on it so when I came across it on the Zara website, I knew I had to get it.
The material isn’t stretchy so the crossover detail makes it easy to wear. I love the billowy sleeves, they’re airy so when the weather is hot in the city or during a vacation, you would stay comfortable while providing some coverup. This shirt just has so many cute details – I know I’ll be wearing it a lot over the next few months. Head over to Zara if you’re looking for more embroidered pieces – they have a lot of cute ones!

I can already picture myself styling this top in different ways – maybe I’ll put together a “3 Ways to Style” post!
Hope you have a great week – thanks for reading. xx
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.
I’m also really loving this bag I got from Zara, see My Obsession Monday: Suede Crossbody Wallet post for details!
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!
Last week I had the opportunity to attend the CMA Gala with my Tangerine work family. Although we didn’t win an award this time around, it was great to be surrounded by industry professionals who were recognized for their creativity and hard work. I felt inspired and had a ton of fun bonding with the team (they’re quite amazing). Keep scrolling for outfit details and more pictures from that night.
The Little Black Dress:
I found this dress at M for Mendocino the day before the CMA Gala. It was pure luck since I don’t always shop at that store but I thought I’d pop by. After trying on a few dresses, the one that was on sale with an additional 30% off fit the best. It ended up being less than $30! I’m not sure if they’re still available at the store but since it was only a week ago, maybe it’s still there!
You can never go wrong with another LBD. The thick criss-cross straps are what makes this dress and I love the open back too. With the back of this dress, I had to wear a stick-on bra but I couldn’t find the one I have the morning of the gala so I had to purchase a new one. I’ve been told that the La Senza Lightly Lined Feather-Lite Backless Bra one is pretty good so out of desperation, I decided to take the plunge and drop $70 for them. I know I know, it’s double the cost of my dress but don’t judge me. I wore it throughout the whole night and didn’t feel uncomfortable at all and it stuck on pretty well. Now I know why it cost that much! I do recommend it if you often wear backless tops or dresses, this one is way better than the one that I misplaced.
Hope you had a great weekend! I went to a wedding on Saturday and because the ceremony and reception weren’t back-to-back, I was able to do an outfit change for the evening. I LOVE weddings, it’s such a happy moment shared between 2 lovebirds with their closest friends and family. I’ve known my friend since I was 11 so it was needless to say that it was an emotional moment – so happy for the newly wed couple! This is the first of many weddings that I have lined up for this year so I will be sharing more wedding looks and outfits in the upcoming months!
Top: Zara – This top is quite fitted and cropped, to make it appropriate for a wedding ceremony, I made sure to pair it with a flowy, high-waisted skirt with a little more length.
Skirt: Small boutique in Seoul, South Korea (I need to go back for some shopping – miss it so much there!). This skirt is one of my favourite statement pieces in my closet. ❤
Bag: Danier Leather
Shoes: Steve Madden (similar ones here, here & here)
