Are you a frequent traveller? I am, and I like to think I have packing down to a science. It drives me a little batty when I’m going through security at the airport behind someone who doesn’t have their sh*t together. Digging through their carry on for their liquids and gels or forgetting to remove their laptops or tablets – it can be a stressful thing especially with a huge line of people with flights to catch behind you. My friend Gloria of Rogue Stories is also an avid traveller and she recently decided to put her experience to work by designing and creating The Flight Pack.

Fall is on the way and the time for short rompers is almost coming to an end. I don’t know about you, but I have a few rompers that I got a lot of wear out of this summer. They’re just so cute and comfortable, whether you choose to dress them up or down. I found this bold orange over-the-shoulder romper at Mendocino earlier this season and I absolutely adore it!

The long flared sleeves on this over-the-shoulder romper make it perfect for the summer-to-fall transition. The high waistline with wide ruched legs makes it look like a fashionable mini-dress with the all the function of shorts. PS – it has pockets!

With the heat we’ve been having lately it’s hard to think about fall fashion, but it’s time to start preparing your wardrobe for seasonal transition! The seventies are back in a big way this fall with playful bohemian prints, billowy shapes, earth tones, luxurious suedes and more. I was inspired to style a monochromatic seventies look when I found these coloured suede heels at DSW Canada.

To create a chic tonal look, I combined apparel and accessories in similar seventies-inspired earth tones. The playful paisley and floral print on the dress adds texture, which is important to keep monochromatic looks from falling flat.

Festival season is in full swing and with all the thought we put into our festival style, it’s important not to overlook the beauty component. To me, festival beauty should be effortless…or at least appear that way! I like to keep my makeup natural, with glowing skin, water or sweat-proof mascara and a pink tinted lip balm. To achieve that flawless festival glow, there are two things that go hand in hand – sunkissed skin and sparkling white teeth!

DSC_2120We all know that white outfits enhance the appearance of tanned skin – well so does a bright white smile ladies, and I have Colgate* Optic White* Platinum TM/MC High Impact White TM/MC  toothpaste to thank for that! Whenever I travel for a music festival (such as WayHome this weekend and Osheaga the following weekend), I always pack my whitening toothpaste, sunless tanning lotion and of course sunscreen!

I recently discovered a new brand on Shopbop called Yumi Kim by New York based designer, Kim Phan – and it was love at first sight! Her collections include vintage shapes in flirty floral prints and almost every piece is made of 100% silk. I have been stocking up on lightweight maxi dresses for my honeymoon in Bali this fall and when I saw the Rush Hour maxi wrap dress I knew that it would be perfect for the occasion!

This gorgeous Yumi Kim maxi dress is fully lined and super comfortable to wear on a hot day. The classic wrap style with a v-neck and crossover shoulder straps lends itself perfectly for a dressed up day or night look. The wrap style offers a sexy little peak of your legs as you walk too!
