Zara Embroidered Shirt

Hi lovelies!

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

Zara White Embroidered Shirt - Look2 - NightOut

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

Zara White Embroidered Shirt - Look3 - Vacay

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.

My Obsession Monday: Embroidered Shirt

MyObsessionMonday - Zara Embroidered - cover

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

Happy Wednesday!

I have totally been MIA for the last month or so, but for a very good reason so I hope you all understand!! I’ve missed blogging and I’ll be getting back into the groove very soon. I started a new job recently and it’s such a refreshing change of environment – the team, company and work are all amazing!

Spring is around the corner and Zara came out with so many cute pieces! Here are a few items that I bought over the course of this month – what do you think?

Zara Spring/Summer’16 Shoes

I LOVE Zara shoes so I thought I’d round up my favourites spring essentials from their S/S’16 selection! These are fun for when the weather warms up and the best part is that they’re all under $100! I’ve also included some style inspiration on how you can sport these with different looks.

For Comfort: Leather Fringe Plimsolls ($69.90)

I’m so happy that sneakers are so trendy now and you can sport them outside of the gym and potentially even dress them up a little! I don’t own a lot since I’m used to wearing more heels but I am always on a lookout for cool styles. This pastel pair is super cute – the suede material adds a softness to the look and the lace tie is perfect for the spring/summer outfits.

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you’ve all been staying warm and dry. The weather has been nasty lately but to make things a little brighter, let’s talk about spring! I recently got invited to the Ever New Spring 2016 Preview at the Rose and Sons Swan – all the flowers and beautiful pieces got me dreaming of spring looks!

Thanks for having me, Kirsten! She’s the absolute cutest and I love the dress that she’s in. Ever New has some really great lace-up piece in this spring collection.

Their ‘Season Essentials’ collection had so many  fresh pieces that are great for the city girl and ‘Positano Postcard’ had a feminine flare, filled with whites, light pastels and a burst of colour. Those pieces make you want to start planning your next holiday getaway!

MyBlancCanvas - Ever New - Flat Lay 3

They had a flat lay station – so genius! It’s great for those of us who want to capture the perfect shot for Instagram! I picked out some of my favourite pieces from each collection for my flat lays.

My Obsession Monday: Forever 21 Romper

My Obsession Monday - Forever 21 Romper.jpg

Happy Monday lovelies!

The sun’s out and it’s getting me excited about Spring! There may still be another month or so of winter jackets and Sorels, but it’s never too early to start looking at spring outfit inspiration! Am I right?

I love pieces that are great on their own and also versatile enough to transition from season to season. That is why I am obsessed with this Forever 21 Crinkled Surplice Romper in Olive for only $19.90! It comes in 3 colours – all neutrals! The peach colour may be a little too light for my complexion but I would definitely pick up the black one as well (if they restock)! The lightweight material makes it easy to layer pieces over and under the romper without making it feel too frumpy. I sported this piece with tights and tall boots at the Ever New Spring Preview (post will go up next week!) since it’s still a bit chilly but when it warms up, I’ll rock it with strappy sandals and open toe shoes!
