Top 5 Jumpsuits for Summer!

Jumpsuit: Shein (only $25!) | Purse: H&M | Sunglasses: Aldo (similar) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar) Happy Hump Day! The weather is finally starting to get warm here in Toronto which makes me think of a lightweight and versatile wardrobe. I absolutely love the heat and I love dressing for the heat even more. I am totally not a layering girl so thinking of warm rays against my skin gets me so giddy, lol! One of my favourite Summer pieces is the jumpsuit. It’s one and done and always a good idea! I’ve been curious about trying a jumpsuit but wasn’t sure if it would flatter my body shape. And I wasn’t sure if I’d like pants at the bottom. I’ve been seeing them everywhere on Instagram so I really wanted to give it a try. I decided to play it safe and stick with black with pleats for some added chicness. I have to say I love, love, love this jumpsuit and it’s just so cozy and easy! It literally feels like I’m wearing my pj’s lol! And because of my new found obsession with the jumpsuit I decided to round my top 5 favorite jumpsuits of the season!: Top 5 Jumpsuits for Spring: SheIn (mine and it’s under $30!) Missguided (SO tempted to buy this!!) Showpo (LOVE this one!) Nordstrom (the perfect everyday jumpsuit) Showpo (the lbd version of a jumpsuit) xo Lauren Thank you to SheIn for collaborating with me on this post!

Summer Must-Have: The Perfect Pair of Sunnies with Made Eyewear

    Sunglasses: Made Eyewear ($20 off with code LAUREN20) | Bodysuit: Mendocino (similar) | Pants: Mendocino (similar) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar) | Purse: H&M Sunnies and me go together like peanut butter and jelly, lol! Seriously, I’m pretty sure you can’t find a recent picture of me without my sunglasses on. I literally do not leave my house without my favourite pair of sunglasses on and my car is basically the home to my any pairs of sunglasses. And I honestly feel like no outfit is complete without the perfect pair of shades. My sunnies usually consist of cat eye style lenses or oversized lenses. I also tend to buy sunglasses that are cheap and mainly for style. But I recently had the opportunity to select a pair of sunglasses from Made Eyewear. They have an amazing selection of sunglasses and optical glasses. And even better is that you can customize the lens type in your glasses to really suit your needs! Another perk is that most of Made Eyewear’s sunglasses are unisex. I don’t know about you but my hubby and I love to swap sunglasses when possible. And it’s pretty much more possible for me then him as all mine usually tend to be very girly, lol! So he loves the Hudson style too since he can wear mine finally!! I chose the Hudson style sunglasses because I wanted to get a more sophisticated pair of sunglasses. I wanted a pair of sunnies I could wear to…

Top 5 Must Have Shorts for Summer

Shorts: H&M (under $30 and available in black here)| Top: H&M (couldn’t find it online but similar here)  | Shoes: Vince | Purse: H&M (gold colour) | Sunglasses: Ray Ban| Watch: Daniel Wellington (15% off with code ‘LAURENEVA’) | Necklace: BaubleBar Happy Friday babes! Short season is officially here in Toronto and I’ve been filling my closet with so many different styles of shorts. I love shorts that are cute but most importantly cozy. Shorts that are too short or too stiff literally drive me crazy! I like a pair I can through on, look put together and go! Like most girls I love myself a pair of denim shorts. But high waisted shorts have my heart for so many reasons. They hide bloated I-ate-way-too-much-food bellies, hit the tiniest spot of your body and can basically go with any top! I found these navy high waisted shorts at H&M and I have worn them three times this week already! I just lurve them and think these may be my most fave pair this season! That being said, I decided to round up my top 5 pairs of shorts you need for Summer! Top 5 Must Have Shorts for Summer: 1.  H&M (mine above) 2. Urban Outfitters (the best mom shorts/90’s inspired) 3. Levi’s (love these!) 4. Missguided (want these so bad!!) 5. Wildfox (need these in my life!)

Currently Crushing On: Little White Shirt Dress

Dress: SheIn c/o (only $23.99!!) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar here) | Purse: H&M | Sunglasses: Aldo (similar here) Lately, I have been totally loving shirt dresses! They are so versatile, super easy to style and literally look good with any bag or shoe. I love wearing shirt dresses with a heeled sandals and a cute crossbody bag for a complete look! When I saw this shirt dress at Shein I knew I wanted it and loved how it was maxi length. I also loved how it was white because what girl doesn’t love a breezy white dress in the Summer? When I first tried it on Qais told me it looked like I was wearing a lab coat, lol! So I was honestly a little nervous to wear it out! But after he saw it styled he told me he liked it. So I hope he was telling the truth!! This dress fits true to size. It is majorly see through so just wear a slip under it! I’m just wearing a black bodycon skirt underneath because I couldn’t find a white or nude slip. It doesn’t have buttons which I wish it did. But overall it’s such an easy dress and perfect with a pair of sandals or heels! And it’s only $23.99 so you can’t go wrong adding this to your cart!

Spring Fave: Pleated Maxi Skirt

Skirt: Make Me Chic | Top: H&M| Purse: H&M | Hat: H&M (similar here) | Sandals: Forever 21 (similar here and here) | Watch: Rosefield | Sunglasses: Aldo (similar here) Happy Monday! Today’s look is an outfit I wore out for a day date with Qais on Sunday! I am a huge date night girl and I love to dress for it. But I find day dates a little harder to dress for if I don’t want to wear jeans and heels! Luckily this maxi skirt was the perfect choice for a comfortable and easy day date look! I haven’t been a huge fan of maxi skirts lately. I literally wore them out a few years ago and got really bored of them. This maxi in particular really caught my eye because of the pleating and how shiny it was (as weird as that sounds, lol!). I decided I would give the maxi skirt one last chance and I have to say I do really love it! I absolutely love the material and the pleating! It’s nice enough to dress up and wear to a wedding. Or you can dress it down like me with a basic white tee and sandals. I originally paired it with a hat but it was too windy to wear! I literally lost my hat like 10 times trying to shoot this look lol! This cute maxi is only $21.99 and fits more on the snug side. I would say size up as this skirt has zero stretch!

Currently Crushing On: Baby Blue for Spring!

Skirt: GoJane c/o (on sale!) | Top: Zara (old – but this top would be cute with it!) | Shoes: Forever 21 ( love these here and similar here) | Purse: Le Chateau (under $50!) | Sunglasses: Shades Crush c/o Yay for hump day! This Spring season I have been trying to experiment as much as possible with new styles and new colours. I have a strong love for black, white and grey clothes. But I really love some colour in the Spring and Summer and made it my goal to incorporate it as much as possible! Baby blue has been a pretty popular colour this season. I can’t say I have ever owned a baby blue piece before. But when I saw this baby blue tie up skirt from Go Jane I loved the colour and of course the tie up on the front. I did a previous post a few weeks back about my love for tie up skirts. You can read that post here. This skirt is such a simple skirt but the colour makes it really stand out. I love baby blue and white together so that was a no brainer for me! And I finished the look a flattering pair of heeled sandals and my favorite Chloe Faye dupe (which is under $49 BTW!). I also decided to round up a few of my favorite baby blue pieces I’m swooning over!

Top: SheIn (similar here) | Jeans: Levi’s | Shoes: Aldo | Purse: BP (similar here and on sale!) | Sunglasses: Quay Happy Monday and happy Memorial Day to all my American readers! Here in Canada, we celebrated our long weekend (which is Victoria’s Day) last weekend! Long weekends in the Spring and Summer are seriously the best and I’m already excited for the next one! Summer to me equals easy outfits that are light weight and flowy. But, I also like to just throw on a pair of jeans and a tank or an off the shoulder top in the Summer too! As much as I love dressing up, relaxed days and errands calls for a jeans and t-shirt kind of feel. Now that being said I always try to amp up my ‘basic’ outfits to make them more fun and stylish. I love wearing jeans and a plain top but honestly that can be a little boring if you don’t find ways to make it a little more fun! That being said here are my go-to tricks on making my everyday outfits waaay more fab: 3 STEPS ON MAKING A BASIC LOOK NOT SO BASIC: 1. It’s All About the Shoes Rule of thumb for most outfits is it’s all about your shoes! Shoes can most definitely make or break an outfit and for a more simple look this is no exception.

Wedding Season Ready with Marshalls

Dress: Marshalls (only $39!! – but similar here and here) | Shoes: Charlotte Russe (similar here) | Purse: H&M (under $30!) | Earrings: Kate Spade | Sunglasses: Shades Crush c/o It’s officially wedding time and I can’t wait to attend my first wedding of the season! I absolutely love attending weddings and seeing the love in the air, eating the food and of course enjoying a few free drinks from the bar! I also love buying dresses for wedding season. And ask my hubby, each wedding I attend I need a new dress! I mean when else do you have an excuse to buy a dress and only wear it once!? I tend to splurge when it comes to buying guest-of-wedding dresses for no good reason except that I just want to, lol! But I think I found good middle ground that will keep my hubby and wallet pretty happy. I actually found this gorgeous dress I’m wearing at Marshalls for only $39! It regularly retails for $80 and is a amazing guest-of-wedding dress in my opinion! I couldn’t believe how many options for GOW that Marshalls had. I actually had to narrow down my selections! When I tried this dress on I knew it was the perfect dress to kick off the wedding season. It’s the perfect length, I love the crochet overlay and the high neck is such a nice detail to really pull the dress together. And to keep it simple I paired it with my black sandals…

My Favourite Jean Shorts EVER!!

Top: Forever 21 (similar here) | Duster: Zara (similar here) | Shorts: Urban Outfitters (under $60!) | Shoes: Vince (on sale!!) | Hat: H&M | Purse: H&M | Sunglasses: Aldo (similar here) | Necklace: Baublebar Happy hump day! Today Qais and I are enjoying our mini getaway at the cottage. We are only gone for 3 days but sometimes a mini vacation is better then none! I wore this outfit on Monday strolling through the city because I was DYING to wear these new shorts I just snagged last weekend from Urban Outfitters. But first I need to tell you about these Vince shoes I snagged from Winners! These shoes are my new babies that originally retail for $500+ and I got them for only $59! So crazy right? I have been looking for the perfect block heel strappy sandals and these are it! They are made from real suede and the heels are real wood. I’ve linked the cheapest I could find above which is under $200! Secondly, these jean shorts are life! I have been looking for light wash high waisted jean shorts that would give me all the 90’s feels. The fit is beyond amazing and they are under $60 so you can’t go wrong. They fit true to size and have the perfect butt coverage (I hate when butt cheeks show when wearing shorts, lol!). Basically, these shorts and these Vince sandals are going to be on major repeat all season long!  I totally vouch for…
