Patio Time

For me, a perfect day would ALWAYS include spending time with friends while eating yummy food. So when Lena invited a group of lifestyle bloggers over for lunch and patio time - I couldn't wait to hang out!
My outfit for the event: top (c/o) / jeans / bag

It was such a lovely afternoon - we tried new dishes and learned how to prepare some of the recipes. If you plan on entertaining this summer, read on for two easy-to-make appetizers! We started off with this fresh fruit and dip combo:

What I Packed for a Week in London

My husband is from England, and we fly there once a year to visit family. I lived in London for 8 years, so it's always a treat to go back and revisit my favourite places - and share them with my children.

We usually split our trip between two hotels - one in Central London and one closer to family, so we always try to pack light. I find the best way to avoid over-packing is to plan EVERY single outfit I'm going to wear - from clothes to shoes and accessories.

Meeting a BAWSE

Do you have trouble finding the right top to wear with a flared midi skirt? While crop tops look amazing, they're not something I'm comfortable wearing (A peek of my midriff? No thank you!). This black bodysuit is a fun alternative. It's fitted, so it contrasts nicely with the flared silhouette. And because it's a bodysuit, you don't have to worry about it bunching up at the waist.

The One That Nearly Got Away...

I'm so upset with Joe Fresh - and here's why. FIRST - they design the PERFECT white lace dress...just the right length...with short sleeves...the prettiest lace trimming AND priced at only $49. THEN - they send this dress to various Canadian fashion bloggers - who proceed to share gorgeous outfit pictures on Instagram.

All of this may sound good...then why am I so upset? Because Joe Fresh didn't make enough of this dress! It was just SOOOOO hard to find, I had friends and family all over Canada looking for it.

Lemons, Vintage Gucci & Summer Loves

I was talking to some bloggers at a recent party, about all the cute prints we've been seeing recently - from lemons to pineapples and flamingos. We thought we'd left those prints behind in our childhood - yet here we are, tempted to wear them because they're so colourful and fresh!

My lemon-print top is actually an off-the-shoulder design, but we all know how I feel about off-the-shoulder tops, so I wore it with the sleeves up. As for my bag, this was the first designer bag I ever bought. Although I purchased it directly from a Gucci store - it's now over 10 years old - so I guess you could say it's vintage?  I hardly wear it anymore, but after seeing the Dionysus and Blooms bags everywhere, I remembered that I had a Gucci bag (or 3...) of my own in storage!
