White After Labour Day









Some people might think wearing all white is risky, but I'm not one of those people. It's well after Labour Day and I'm simply not ready to retire my treasured white jeans. We've also been experiencing unseasonably warm temperatures - which is even more of a reason to continue wearing white. 

I was snooping around my local Aerie store, and I was super impressed by the clothing selection. For some reason, I thought Aerie only sold lingerie, but they actually have super cute loungewear and pieces (like my sweater) that I would actually wear out! I picked up the lace up back sweater just to try on, but I ended up loving it so much that I bought it. I love the detail on the back of my sweater. It definitely adds something interesting to an otherwise basic piece and I know I'll be able to style it in other ways! The sweater is also very light, despite looking super thick. It's actually a tad bit sheer on top of the semi-open back; which would be great on for those days where it's chilly in the morning but super hot by lunchtime. 

Shop the look:

A New Playlist

I just took a whole weekend off from everything and it was so great. I had a lot on my plate and I was so glad to have time to chip away at tasks that have been on my to-do list forever. My biggest task was switching over to my Fall/Winter closet. I have quite a bit of clothes and not much space to store them. I rely on vacuum sealed storage bags and thin hangers to set up my closet.


Once I have all of my tools ready, I have to get some good music going. I can't work in silence! I love Spotify because there are always great song suggestions in the 'Discover Weekly' section and the 'Radio' section. There are so many great artists featured in these sections that I wouldn't know about had it not been for Spotify. My only complaint is I often lose focus on my task because I want to stop and save the songs for later!

Here is a playlist of songs I've been loving lately!

Fall Staples


Fall is a few weeks away and I'm so excited! It's definitely my favourite season. It may be cliche, but I live for the colourful leaves, crisp air, seasonal activities and of course the clothes! I'm planning on switching over to my Fall closet this weekend, and I've been figuring out what pieces I need to update and add. I tend to go for classic items as the base of my outfits, then I try to incorporate some trendy and current pieces in as well. I definitely do not rely on trends, however, simply because they do not last.

As fun as some trends can be; investing in quality pieces that stand the test of time will save you from having a closet full of dated clothing and money! I put together my Fall staples in a widget today: 

What are your fall must haves?
