Is there anything better than slipping into a cute romper during hot summer days? The functionality of shorts with the appeal of a dress combined into one irresistible package really does the trick for me. Here are my top 10 choices for this summer:

Focus on Blue Skies

fashion blogger Canada

I was really excited to test the new lens blur feature that came with the software update of my Nexus phone. The description hints at a targeted fashion blogger demographics, so I thought what better way of putting it to the test than by shooting a mini ootd. The result was decently good for a smart phone whose strongpoint was never its camera. While there still are some kinks (determining the accurate contour of the subject) that need fixing I was overall impressed with the lens blur effect and I can see a lot of applications for it. Let me know what you think.

Weekend Shopping Guide

summer outfit inspiration

Once in a while, I find that I need a little bit of pink in my life. It makes bad days better, cupcakes yummier and apartments more cheerful, so I'm hoping it will have a similar effect on this week's Shopping Guide. Enjoy!

How to Rock Kimonos This Summer

how to wear a kimono

I don't believe there ever was a bigger hype about kimonos since the 1920s when art deco captured a generation's obsession with everything relating to Japanese art. I've been practically living in them all summer and I personally can't see a better investment in a warm season clothing item. Wear them with a pair of cropped shorts, a lacy top and a pair of comfy plimsoles for that much craved careless music festival look. Layer a couple of necklaces on top and you're good to go. How do you rock your kimonos this summer?

Canada Day

Our Canada Day celebrations involved tons of food, fun in the sun and fireworks. Which made me think: if every day involved a pyrotechnic spectacle before going to bed I'd feel super accomplished about everything I managed to get done during those 24 hours. What do you think fashionistas? Do we need more fireworks in our lives?

Vero Moda and Only Fall Bargain Finds

Only aviator jacket
Only faux leather jacket for $15

Since I was buying cropped shorts in the middle of January at -30 degrees, it shouldn't be a surprise to you gals that I already started to look ahead to colder months and purchased a few fall items. I always like to bargain hunt off season because, in the long run, it saves me a lot of money - hence these three awesome jackets bought for the equivalent of $60 while I was in Europe.
