Military Vest Summer Edition!

Hey guys! So this look is kinda creeping into the fall category....I want it to be fall but we're not there quite yet! This is also a look where when seeing the pictures, it wasn't as cute as I thought it was! The shoes totally ruined this for me....I would have much rather gone for a classic black pump or some strappy stiletto sandals or something. The green definitely doesn't look as good in the pictures as it did in person! Ah well, you win some you loose some. Such is the fashion game...sometimes you're totally on point and other times your outfit just isn't as fab as you think it is! Anyways, hope the military vest summer edition inspires you to bring out and start playing with some of your fall pieces! Enjoy! 
P.S. Now you all see why I wear sunnies in all my photos...I always seem to have a serious case of squinty eyes without them!

Drool Worthy Recipes: Part 2!

Hey guys! Happy weekend! Hope you all have some great plans! Not much going on here...just spending lots of time in the garden followed by lots of cooking and baking in the kitchen! That's partially why I'm writing this post...I have so many vegetables that are ready to be picked in my garden that I've been on the hunt for recipes to use them up so here are a couple that I've either made or have been holding onto waiting to use! Hope there are a couple in here that you like enough to add to your recipe collection! Enjoy!

 Corn Fritters with Spicy Zucchini Salsa:

Summer Squash Corn Chowder:
Cooking Classy 

I actually made a vegan version of this by substituting a mixture of coconut milk and unsweetened almond milk and tempeh "bacon" instead of the bacon and added some cumin! Amazing!

Blue Aztec Maxi!

Hey guys!! Hope you had a great week! I planned on doing more posts while my mum was in town visiting but it was such a busy week that just didn't happen! The entire week exhausted me! So much so I feel like I'm coming down with a bit of a flu now which I am nursing before it gets any worse! Anyways, I've been wanting to share this dress with you for a while now...definitely one of my favorites up on my online boutique right now! Maxi dresses are the perfect lazy day fashion piece. They're pretty spectacular on their own most of the time that they don't need great shoes or accessories to complete the look...it's fairly finished all on it's on! Hope you like it! Enjoy!

Wide Leg Trousers!

Hey guys! So I was killing time wandering around this second hand store called Buffalo Exchange before work a while ago and found two great pieces! An amazing pair of wide leg trousers, I have always been a sucker for wide leg trousers and these were such a great pair! I think I still need to hem them a bit as I'm super short and they're almost like pants on me when I'm not wearing pumps but still such a great fit otherwise! The other piece I found was a bright colored floral crop top, how could I say no!? I love second hand finds. It truly feels like you're striking gold! These two pieces came to a whopping $26! Amazing. This outfit was hard to shoot as these pieces move around your body because they're super loose but these photos definitely don't show that very well! I think the loose pieces work well together because there is a that little bit of skin showing from the crop top, if not I would usually pair wide leg trousers with a fitted top! Hope you like the look! Enjoy!

Sunshine and Polka Dots!

Hey everyone! First off I really hope you can't see too much of my crazy bruised legs in this outfit but it's just been so hot out this little tube dress has been nice and comfortable! It's breathable, light and loose! I love it and of course, I'm always such a sucker for polka dots! It's been a busy week here, with getting all of my accident stuff taken care of and preparing for the arrival of my mum! She's here to visit for a week and go wedding dress shopping with me! Hopefully I'll have a couple fun pictures of me in wedding dresses to show off with you guys! Anyways, hope you like the look! Enjoy!

Nordstrom: Back to School Cool!

Hey guys! So sorry for the delay on a new post. Last Wednesday night on my bike ride to work I was hit by a car. I'm super lucky and only walked away with lots of really bad bruises from head to toe but it's taken a while to get back on track. I'm slowly but surely getting there but still haven't had the energy to put an outfit post together, partially because all I want to do is be comfy and live in my pj's! Anyways, it's rolling into fall fashion pretty quickly...the best time of year! Time for lots of layers! I just checked out the juniors section of Nordstrom and am loving so many pieces! The BP section is my favorite....petite sizing and the price point is perfect! I had to share some of my favorites with you! I hope you love them as much as I do! Enjoy!

Clarks Wedges!

Hey everyone!! Happy Monday! Just sharing a little post with my favorite new pair of wedges from Clarks.....these things have a great print and are by far the comfiest pair of shoes I own these days! I want a pair in every color! The rest of the look is pretty casual! Cut off shorts definitely dress down this entire look a ton but I think it works! Need to dress it up to another level!? Just trade out the shorts with a pencil skirt or some dressy oxford or chino shorts! Hope this look inspires you a little! Enjoy!
