[MEN'S] For Summer

It's really starting to warm up out there! I thought I'd put together some summer essentials. The last post I did for you guys, was pretty scattered, so I'm going to try to stick to on theme - summer. There are some things you should stay away from, are some things you should really try out! Take a look...

Now...some people need to realize that really colourful plaid shorts should be left in 2006 and on the golf course. Let's....just not. A pair of more structured and tailored shorts are great for a casual summer day, but also to dress up in the evening. Try them with a pop of colour too!

1. Chambray Short - Asos - $43.49
2. Stone Pleat Tailored Shorts - Topshop - about $52
3. Chino Shorts - Asos - $38.27

4. Plain-front Bermuda - Old Navy - $32.00 

A good light shoe for summer is important! Gotta be cozy. Sperry's Top-Siders are still in trend, and they could not be more perfect for summer! There are a lot of great options out there.

1. Authentic Original Boat Shoe - Sperry Top-Sider - $80
2. The Dom Sneaker - Karmaloop - $117.55
3. Trees Jute Wrap Sneaker - Urban Outfitters - $38.00

It's summer, it's hot, maybe let's try something lighter then one of the stiff fitted hats? Maybe I shouldn't be making opinions on hats...I know how some guys can be. But also...prints! These also happen to all be from Karmaloop. You can probably find them at stores that carry those brands. They just happen to have a good selections of hats.

1. Benny Gold The Native 5Panel - Karmaloop - $36.90
2. Obey The Dry Dock Hat - Karmaloop - $25.56
3. Brixton The Henshaw Hat - Karmaloop - $24.60

So what do you think? Let me know in the comments below!

[OUTFIT] New Oxfords

I've been wearing this shawl/cardigan thing like crazy! It's incredibly's like wearing a blanket. I thought wearing lighter colours on top, and wearing dark lipstick could be I tried it out! Also! My new Steve Madden oxfords finally came in! My other ones were getting pretty old and beat up, so I thought I'd get a new pair. They fit perfectly! Luckily, and I've already been wearing them a lot. Oxfords are always a good shoe to have.

[VIDEO] Double Bun

I thought it was about time I make another video! A little while ago, someone asked for some hair ideas. Here is one that I thought I'd try out! It was my first time doing it, and I wasn't paying full attention, so it could be better. It's quite similar looking to the sock bun, but slightly different. It's very easy to do! So give it a try!

[ETC] Good Hair Day

I don't know why...but I felt it necessary to share my good hair day with you! This doesn't happen very often, and when it does! It's really quite exciting. HOURRAY!

[OUTFIT] Make a Wish and SNAP

So this outfit is a little Aritzia filled...but shmeh! I like it. I got these clothes last Thursday when shopping with my mom. I saw these pants, and had to try them on! This style of pant has never really looked good on me until I tried these ones on. They are the absolute most comfortable pant next to sweatpants. Best part? Surprisingly not too pricey! With everything at Aritzia with a bit of a gasping price point, I was surprised at the price of these ones. Definitely check them out if you're ever in Aritzia, they come in all sorts of colours, and they're great for summer!

[OUTFIT] Chained

I was handing out some resumes today, and as I as handing one in at Forever21, I found this great necklace! It's definitely my style, simple but with an extra umph! I love the contrast it has. This stripped crop top I got last summer, I'd lost until a couple days ago. Last August, I could not find this shirt anywhere, and two days ago, I found it here in Ottawa, intertwined with a sweatshirt. I was so happy to find it! I know it's nothing fancy, but I really like the widths of the stripes.

[OUTFIT] Thrifted

I bought this shirt a little while ago from Goodwill. I thought it was kind of interesting. After buying it, I realized it sort of had this gospel gown kind of feel. I think it's funny. The purple in the photos, is not the actual colour! I was getting really frustrating with editing it. It's actually a very royal purple, not so much a pinkish raspberry. I'll try to get a photo of it outside, to get the actual feel of it.

[FASHION] Summer Lovin'

Slowly but surely, the temperature is getting warmer! Soon it'll be summer, and we can enjoy the nice hot sun, late night walks, and just being outside. I thought I'd do a post on some summer pieces I'd like to add to my wardrobe! But unfortunately cannot afford being on a student budget...hopefully I'll have a job soon? And will be able to update my wardrobe! Here are some fun summer ideas!

Lightweight tops are definitely a necessity for summer! But I'm also a denim lover, so I'll still be making exceptions. If you haven't noticed, I am a button up addict! Always so flattering. 

1. Silk Shirt with Applique - $69.90 - Zara
2. Laced Tail Blouse - $47.38 - Nasty Gal
3. Stella Shell Blouse - $110 - Aritzia
4. Racer Back Denim Shirt - $39 - Urban Outfitters

So this is really just a list of garments that I really like...I'm not following any particular trend. I should do some sort of post for that in the future maybe. I'll be sure to get to that. So these are three dresses that I really love! That dress on the far right, I was about to order, but then discovered they only size large left. I was rather upset. I thought it was an interesting dress, unlike any other. Hopefully it will come back in a medium!

1. Embroidered Dress - $69.90 - Zara
2. Banded Colourblock Dress - $27.90 - Forever21
3. Sasa Sparkle Dress - $46.98 - Nasty Gal

I saw this bolo tie last time I was at Topshop, and now I really regret not getting it. It's marvellous! And a good twist to a regular necklace. As for the Comme des Garçons coin purse...I just really need a new coin purse. The one I use now, I use as my wallet, and it's getting pretty icky. I love this one! Perfect for the neon trend. 

Triangle Bolo Tie Necklace - about $16 - Topshop
House of Harlow 1960 Star Stud Earrings - $56.51 - Shopbop
Comme des Garçons Embossed Leather Coin Purse - $100 - Net a Porter
