The easiest piece to wear in the summer is a dress – hands down. One piece and you’re done. But also, its HOT (not complaining) and there is nothing breezier than a loose fitting strappy dress.
Also, if you are looking for a little more coverage up top, layer a tee underneath. White is always a good option but grey would look cute with most of these as well. Something fitted but not too tight.
Here are some of my favourite strappy midi dresses for the hot summer months ahead.
1. Ruffled Eyelet White Midi. Zara.
This is probably not for every day errand running because while white is beautiful, it’s just not the most practical. But this would be beautiful for a date night. OR an afternoon party.

I love gingham in black or navy. It’s casual yet there is something about this print that makes it feel a little more structured and put together.
I have put together some of my favourite gingham looks together, mostly dresses, and mostly from Nordstrom because its the half year sale. Which means most of these are 40-50% off until June 3. If you haven’t shopped Nordstrom before, they do have an excellent return policy. The only downfall is that shipping isn’t free from Canada but at these prices, I don’t mind paying a few extra dollars to shop. Or you can call your local store to see if they have it in stock and have them set it aside for you to pick up.
1. Mixed Print Dress. Nordstrom.
The back detail is so cute. Although probably not a great dress if you are busty. The sale price is only $40.

I love how feminine and flirty an eyelet piece is. Plus who doesn’t like a little ventilation on a hot summer day. This summer, there is no shortage of eyelet pieces from dresses to tops, shorts and even shoes. Although I am not sold on the eyelet shoe. Here are a few of my favourite eyelet pieces.

I took a peak at some of the new arrivals at Aldo this morning because they are having a BOGO 40% off sale on footwear. And they have some really cute stuff – great casual everyday flats and some really nice heels. As always shipping and returns are free (if you spend $70). Here are my favs.
1. Fuschia/Orange Pump with See Through Side Panel.
I love these two colours together. They look great as a pop of colour with a neutral outfit or go bold and pair them with a bright blue or yellow.

A light kimono is the perfect layering piece for summer. The prints are always so fun and the flowy light fabric is breezy and cool for hot summer days. I love wearing a kimono over denim cutoffs because not only does it give me a little coverage but it also adds a little something ‘extra’ to an otherwise basic outfit. Plus, a kimono makes a great beach cover up.
Here are a few of my favourite kimonos for summer.

I was apprehensive about the mule trend at first. It took me a while to get on board. But now mules are my go-to shoe and not because I need or want to be “on trend” but because I finally realized how practical a slip on shoe is. I wish I figured this out last summer when I was 9 months pregnant. Anyhow, I have become slightly obsessed with mules so I am sharing some of my fav mules under $100.
First I will share some casual options and then a few that are more office appropriate.

Here are some of my favourite bags, all under $100.
Half Moon Crossbody. Banana Republic.
This one is a little more pricey, but Banana Republic does go on sale for 40% off, so keep an eye out.

The shirtdress has become a wardrobe staple for me. Not only is it comfortable and flattering but it’s a really versatile piece. And because of its versatility its also a great piece to pack. I have been trying to become a more efficient packer (still a work in progress) so I am always on the hunt for pieces that can be worn multiple ways. To say that I am overpacker is an understatement. Anyhow, back to the shirt dress….
Here are three different ways to style your shirtdress. Plus I have included some of my favourite spring shirtdresses if you are looking to add one to your wardrobe.
One: Add a Belt
I typically replace the self tie fabric belt that comes with the shirtdress with a belt I already have. I love the look of a chunky leather belt paired with neutral mules for a more casual look. And you can see how a simple belt switch changes the look – the red belt totally dresses it up especially if you add a pair of a heels.
