marie claire - august

Ok I know I've been a very bad blogger lately..please forgive me!! How much are you loving this spread from Marie Claire's August issue? I'm obsessed with the Dolce & Gabbana look I'm a sucker for sequins! (note: I just made it the background on my computer) Fall, which is my favorite season, is on its way and I'm ready to welcome it with open arms. Yes the thought is bittersweet with winter soon to follow but let's pretend that won't happen for now. I apologize for making you think about winter in July... On a positive note, I recently celebrated my birthday with the most amazing people I know - family and friends of course! Everyone made it so perfect I couldn't have asked for more, I'm trying to take photos of my lovely gifts to share with you all so stay tuned :)

listen up - The Black Keys

I went to see The Black Keys two nights ago with my friend Lily, I agreed to go see them months ago after only hearing a song or two on the radio. I'm happy to announce I am an official fan! :) Their sound is incredible you almost can't believe it's just the two of them. Extra little point they started right on time! Cage The Elephant opened for them, I've attached one of their videos below - watch it! 
Have a great day!!

style strut snapshots

Modern Vintage Wedges available at Winners $129

House of Harlow flats available at Winners $99

Leopard Print Envelope Clutch available at Zara $60 (SALE)

Took some snapshots while shopping last week, wanted to share my style finds with you all :) So the wedges featured above are the best purchase you could possibly make this summer, they're nude so you know they'll go with everything and anything and who doesn't like to strut their stuff in a beautiful wedge?! I swear I could wear mine all day and night and you wouldn't hear a peep about how uncomfortable my shoes are.
Next find the velvet flats, now I should mention that fall is my favorite season the layering, the cool yet sunny weather, the new collections!!! So I suggest you add a little drama to your wardrobe with new fabrics in deep jewel tone shades and purchase these flats (I would have but unfortunately they weren't available in my size)
Finally, the leopard print suede clutch. In love with it and totally regret not buying it but c'est la vie. I must point out my favorite part the gold closure such a simple yet beautiful detail.  

PS I went to Ottawa for Canada Day and saw Will & Kate! Will post more tomorrow
