Le Chateau dress / Steve Madden heels

Hi friends! Happy Sunday! I can’t believe there is only one more weekend in August and then “summer” is over! Like what? Wasn’t it snowing last month?? I am so NOT ready to take out my winter boots – and yes I know we are still months away from winter but let’s be honest… Once September has passed it is all downhill from there.

On a bright note, it is the perfect time to wear this gorgeous summer AND fall appropriate dress! I saw it in store and fell in LOVE with the color palette (pair it with a faux leather jacket and dark heels and you are good until October). There are so many pretty details about this dress, like the tied-up shoulder straps, or the open back. A little tip, if you are not comfortable going bra-less opt for the sticky cups like I did! So comfortable – and not painful to remove I promise.

The girls at the store recommended me to wear wedges with the dress, but to be honest I find wedges unflattering – I just feel they make your feet look bigger and larger than they are… So I decided to take out my new pair of super simple super nude heels, which I love.

I hope you all had a good weekend, it’s been raining all the time here and the humidity has been killer. Stay tuned next week to see what it did to my hair… not flattering!

Dynamite bomber, jeans, bodysuit / Baublebar choker / Marc Fisher booties

As much as I hate to admit it, I am excited to take out alllll of my boots and booties out to play in the next few weeks. Summer might be the best season all around, but Fall is just so comfortable – you know what I mean? Walking outside and it is crisp and fresh, and then getting inside and smelling the pumpkin pie in the oven and your cheeks are slowly warming up… So I know the temperature right now is still crazy hot but I couldn’t resist styling all my new favorite pieces from Dynamite’s Fall collection. The hem of these jeans is so fun, and I always love a good pair of high-waisted! I never thought of myself as someone who would wear a bodysuit, but for some reason this one just called my name and I love how it looks with a light bomber jacket! Perfect mix of casual and feminine. Choker have been a love-hate thing for me, sometimes I hate the look because it makes me look like I have 3 chins (yes, not 2 but 3), but sometimes like right now I love the look because it just pulls everything together!

Now these booties are just from another world. They combine everything I love about shoes. Block heel, fringe, peep-toe, and suede. The color is spot on for next season!

Goodnight Macaroon dress / Marc Fisher sandals (on sale) / Linell Ellis clutch

Clearly I have been having a slight obsession all summer with Goodnight Macaroon, because almost every other outfit I talk about comes from there. But there is a reason for that! The clothes are absolutely the cutest, they are super affordable and the shipping is crazy fast – especially great if you are like me in Canada or another country, and shipping can usually take a few weeks.

I love the blue flowers on the dress, and the contrast with the red door makes them pop. I read an article saying that photos where the color blue is the most present have much more success on social media… Is that weird? I did have that in mind when I saw the dress online, but to be perfectly honest I would have still gotten it even if the flowers were green, red, or any other color! 🙂

A litte tip: I had to use fabric tape to prevent the top of the dress from being too open (and too revealing).

Hope you all had a great Monday, thanks for stopping by! And don’t forget to subscribe to my newsletter! XO

Goodnight Macaroon dress / Steve Madden sandals / BP earrings ($10!)

Here are the details of the gorgeous – and affordable! – dress I wore to last week’s Diner en Blanc with Metro! I am obsessed with it, but the best part is that if you are not into a fully white dress (maybe too formal?) it also comes in black, or in white with a nude slip!

I only wore one earring to the dinner, I wanted it to make a little more of a statement and loved the way it ended up looking. And the nude sandals I am wearing are so comfortable (well up to a point AKA 12am) and come in a bunch of different colors.

I hope you are all having a great Sunday and enjoying the last weeks of summer 🙂 XO

Diner en Blanc x Metro

Last night I had the chance to attend Metro’s Diner en Blanc in Ottawa, and it was ah-mazing. That was my first time attending an all-white themed dinner so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But just arriving to the meet up location (the dinner location was a secret!) there were so many people who had taken this as a challenge and were wearing masks, gloves, hats,… that I knew the evening was going to be good!

I’ll be honest, I was a little freaked out when Laura (my +1) and I arrived at the dinner location and saw everyone carrying their chairs and food baskets – and we had nothing with us! But since we were invited by Metro, they had us taken care of and we were treated like celebrities. No, for real. We got seated at tables and they brought us wine, champagne, food in individual baskets, sparklers to light up later in the evening… and the dessert table was to DIE for! I have a HUGE sweet tooth and as some of you may know I will NEVER say no to cheesecake. I was in heaven (and when we left, we received boxes of cheesecakes and cupcakes to take home… my fridge is full and I know I will not be able to eat them all but cheesecake for breakfast is where it is all about!).

We ended up dancing the night away in the centre of the city under the stars, came home way too late and wayyyy too full – but I am not regretting a single bite I took. Thank you Metro for having us!

PS: I will be sharing all the details of my look on a new post in a couple of days 🙂

PPS: Here are a couple of videos I shared on Instagram, the quality is terrible (I guess it wasn’t meant to be blown up on a computer screen!) but you can get an idea of the vibe of the party!
