Collaboration with BBXCollection

I don’t know about you but I love a good slogan tee. I’m so excited to share my collaboration with BBXCollection this weekend, where I helped model some of their adorable slogan tees. BBXCollection is an Ottawa based retailer that specializes in slogan shirts for everyone! BBX is owned and operated by certified boss babe Megan Racicot. I love the cute slogans on her products and the tees are so comfy and easy to wear. Megan also has you covered for your bachelorette party with her bridal line.

For my shoot with BBXCollection I modeled the Turn Down for Brunch and Darling tees. I thought the slogans were so me as I totally love brunch and well darling is just so cutesy! Watch for the photos from my shoot on their Instagram page and website.

I particularly liked the Darling tee with the pink lettering. I wanted to style the t-shirt based on the pink so I drew some inspiration from Sarah Jessica Parker’s tutu skirt in the opening sequence the show Sex and the City.

I just happened to have a pink midi skirt that paired so well with the t-shirt. As tees are typically dressed down and more of a casual piece I thought of going for a dressed up or formal and feminine look. I added a pair of nude block heels to dress up the outfit and add a more girly feel to it. To accessorize I brought along the newest addition to my purse collection, the Neverfull in white (totally an investment piece). I felt so light and airy in this outfit I literally just wanted to twirl around all afternoon ๐Ÿ™‚

If you haven’t already done so make sure you check out BBX online and on Instagram, you may just find your new favourite t-shirt.

Favourite Fall Sweater Dupes

Is it too early to start shopping for Fall yet? I don’t know about you but Fall is one of my favourite seasons for Fashion. The air is cooler, the leaves are changing and people just seem to dress up more in the Fall. I’veย  been doing some browsing for my new Fall wardrobe and lately I’ve been loving all the designer sweaters and their more affordable dupes! If you know me personally you know I love a good bargain so here are some of me favourite Fall sweaters and their dupes.

Colourblock is back and trending this Fall and these sweaters are no exception.

This pullover sweater from Topshop was all the rage during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Unfortunately it’s not available in-stores in Canada and doesn’t ship to Canada.

Luckily I found this dupe at H&M for a fraction of the price ๐Ÿ˜‰ This striped colourblock sweater is only $20 and readily available in-store and online in Canada. It’s a great way to get the look and stay on trend for less!

In keeping with the colorblock trend I also found this pullover from B.P. at Nordstrom. It’s available in Canada in-store and online and was also part of the anniversary sale.

Don’t feel like paying close to $70 for a sweater? Garage has you covered with this adorable dupe for half the price!

Rounding out my choice of Fall sweaters is a cardigan. I loved the Halogen varsity knit cardigan but I couldn’t get it in my size and it’s no longer available in Canada.

I was so glad when I came across this dupe from Dynamite that looks just like the white version of the Halogen sweater, with a splash of color. This sweater retails for $55 and gives you the same preppy chic look.

What do you think about designer dupes – would you splurge on the real thing or get the look for less?

Mustard Match Up

Fall is one of my favourite seasons and although we still have some Summer left to enjoy, I couldn’t resist picking up some items from Suzy Shier‘s Fall Collection. I was thrilled to find this mustard match up online.

Mustard is definitely making an appearance this Fall and it’s a great Summer to Fall transition colour. I’ve been a little apprehensive about jumping on the mustard band wagon but when I saw these high waisted pants I decided to hop on. These slip on pants are so comfortable and easy to wear. I love the black button details on either side of the waist that give the pants a more structured look. The flared legs also give it a more formal and airy feel. These pants also come in black if you’re looking for a more conservative look.

I wanted to accentuate the mustard colour in the pants so I paired them with this printed crepe blazer. The blazer is more of a kimono style piece with a sash that typically ties at the front. I tied the sash at the back for a more traditional look. This is a great piece as you can wear it so many different ways – tied at the front, at the back or sans sash. I also added a white camisole to contrast with the pants and pick up on the white floral pattern on the blazer as well.

When I saw these items in-store individually they didn’t look like something I’d normally pick up but put them together and you have the perfect match! I’ve linked the exact items in my outfit in the hyperlinks in this post and I’ve also included some similar items below.

Mustard Midi Dress

Hi everyone! I’m back after a small blogging hiatus. I’ve been so busy with South Asian Fest that I haven’t kept up with blogging, although I’ve been consistent on Instagram ๐Ÿ™‚ Can you believe we’re almost in to mid-August?! Like it or not Fall is around the corner and one must-have trend I’ve noticed this year is the colour mustard! Traditionally yellow is more of a Summer colourย  but the rich tones in a mustard yellow are perfect for Summer to Fall transition pieces. I was thrilled to find this adorable midi dress that’s a great transition piece.

This shirt dress is on trend with it’s deep yellow colour and bold floral print. The reds in the print make it great for Summer or Fall. The longer length is also great as midi length dresses and skirts are very popular at the moment. This dress is so comfortable and easy to wear. The belted waist gives it some definition as well.

I paired this dress with some nude Sam Edelman sandals and a basket bag I picked up on my travels. I also added a pair of bauble drop earrings in various shades of red and pink. To take this dress in to Fall you can add a pair of nude closed toe shoes and a perhaps a red cardigan. I would also swap out the basked bag for a nude or tan purse.

What do you think about mustards for Fall?
