Basic Elevated

I have a few basic t-shirts in my closet that I would literally wear anytime, any season, with any style and that's what I love about them-- it's so versatile.  You can wear them to any occasion, dress them up with a silk midi skirt or dress them down with a pair of shorts, overalls or jeans.

Matching Summer Separates + Espadrilles

Been feeling ecstatic now that summer is here... Oh how I love to dress up in the summer time.  I love to be able to mix and match things and have fun accessorizing with jewelries. 

Whenever you don't have time plan ahead for an outfit; I think the best way to put an outfit together is grab your favourite matching pieces.  It is a great way to not overthink your outfit or when you're in a rush to leave the house.

For this particular summer separates, I love the rayon material and the way the shorts feel.  They're just so relaxed and breezy especially when you're at work in a 20+ degree weather!  I bought these particular matching separate shorts and top from Artizia last summer and I happen to remember I have them this morning. lol  

I'm crazy about espadrilles lately... they got to be one of my staple summer pieces.

Trend Alert: Ripped Jeans

Been obsessing over ripped jeans for a long time now.  The hardest part though is finding the right fit and the right amount of rips.  I particularly have a hard time finding a good pair that doesn't stretch out too much as well as finding a pair that fits to a tea.

I love these pair I found from American Eagle... the amount of rips are enough for me.  The cropped length is perfect for summer time too.

This is my first time doing an indoor photoshoot.... I have to admit I like the convenience it offers; for instance, I can just change clothes fast and not look for a change room... and i'm not out in the freezing cold! lol

MAC Lipstick Favourites

I love lipsticks that are long lasting and MAC lipsticks are no exception.  The vivid colours stay on for a longgg time.  When I say long time, trust me, I mean even when I'm eating.  As you can see, I can't get enough of the lipsticks that I decided to collect 5 of them.  My all time favourite colour is "Girl About Town" which is a bright blue fuchsia.  My fall favourite is "Rebel," a midtonal cream plum, as well as "Up The Amp" which is a good purple hue.  "Russian Red" is the colour I would use for a more dramatic intense look.  And for the summer season, I like a bright neon pink colour, "Candy Yum Yum."

Knee-High Boots for Fall

Knee-high or over-the-knee high boots are definitely taking centre stage this season!  I bought my pair about 3 years ago thinking I've always wanted a pair of flat boots that go over the knee and are comfortable as well.  I like variety of lengths in my wardrobe whether it be shoes, boots, skirts, shorts you name it.  Variety of style of different things help me have options when I put an outfit together.

Shorts from Urban Outfitters
Boots from Steve Madden

Blue + Backpack

I've been into casual with feminine pieces lately; and what great way to combine a slip dress with a comfortable sweater and casual backpack in this mild (when I had this photoshoot) fall weather.

I love love love the colour of this slip dress from Aritzia.  You can't go wrong with blue, it's always been my favourite colour and slip dresses were definitely the hot new item in the summer!
