Summer Outfit Recap

Dear Friends,

I know Summer is OVER and I will never get over it…every year!  This past season was one of my favourites in terms of trying new trends and styles.  My personal style motto is definitely ‘Simple and interesting Silhouettes, always with Contrast and Minimal accessories’.  I put together a recap of my favourite outfits this past summer, I hope you enjoy this post!

This look is probably the girliest I will get! I loved that two wide hem items were layered here – the off the shoulder blouse and the flared mini skirt.  It worked well because the top was slightly cropped so the silhouette of the skirt was not lost and it still gave me the look of a waistline.  I wore these lace up pointy toe block heel sandals to further elongate my legs.  If anyone knows me in person they will know I almost exclusively buy pointy heels and have a tendency to get blocked heels as well (They are so much more walkable!)

dsc_2601My mom bought me this “top” from Korea that I wore as a dress – it totally freaked her out! So funny.  It is barely long enough to be a dress but whatever! I paired it with my Stan Smiths for a really simple, I don’t care kind of look. The key here is to add interesting accessories – like a watch and a statement handbag/ shoulder bag.

I am a bit late to the wide legged pants game but I finally gave culottes a try this spring and fell in love.  They are so flowy, easy to wear, and actually elongating to my legs, despite their wide width!  I love to pair culottes with a crop top or a wide hem blouse that is slightly cropped.

This is the last look, but certainly one of my favourites too because it is simple and modern.  I love how the white silk blouse matches with the white Stan Smiths and the skirt visually divides the look.  It feels very Oak + Fort, if you know what I mean.  Another thing I LOVE to wear are body con midi skirts with slits!  It is clean, flattering, and a bit sexy while still being sophisticated.  Finally, I added interest with a simple bracelet.

So that’s it for this post!  I hope you enjoyed it and found some outfit ideas for yourself if you (luckily) live in a hot climate.  Please leave me a comment or a question!

MY FIRST PHOTOSHOOT

A friend of mine recently asked me to be his model for his portfolio, and we, along with some friends drove up to a beautiful beach called Deanlea beach in the township of Tiny.

We went an hour early at 7:30 to make sure we catch the 8:30 sunset, which was ethereal. I still can’t get over how pretty the sky and the beach were.

My friend JP as well as his photographer friend Kenneth shot me standing in the water.  Honestly, my feet starting to hurt after stepping in the rocks for so long, but it was worth it for the pictures!  For my first time, I think a lot of the pictures turned out quite well.  Here are some:
