Top 5 Items On Sale Right Now!

OMG it’s hot! I’m not complaining, but I’m kinda ready for sweater weather!

Here are my 5 favourites things on sale right now!

1. BP Stripe Slub Knit Pullover (via Nordstrom) 40% off!
I am trying to contain myself and not buy all the colours available for this sweater, it’s just that good. I picked this sweater up during the Anniversary Sale and can’t stop wearing it, even though it’s hot out! It’s oversized, so soft and I love everything about it. (I bought a size small, and it’s still big on me!)

2. Treasure & Bond Roll-Up Denim Boyfriend Shorts 40% off!
The PERFECT pair of boyfriend shorts are on sale! Check out my blog post here where I gush about how much I love these shorts, and now they are on sale. Since they were a bit pricey to start off with, this is a great time to buy a pair! I bought a size 29, which is pretty much my usual jean size, so no need to size up or down. They do stretch as you wear them, but I just roll them up a bit more until I wash and re-shrink them!

3. Tory Burch Amanda Foldover Black Messenger Bag 70% off!
I can’t say enough good things about Alfred & Co., ottawa’s best designer consignment store. They have an incredible selection of items from top designers, including this gorgeous purse. Check back often, they post new items on their online store weekly!

4. Aldo Lucania Pointed Flats Under $40!
I am on the hunt for a great pair of flats for this fall and I think these might be the ones. I am done with round-toe ballerina flats, I want something a bit edgier and you just can’t beat Aldo’s prices! Also comes in two other gorgeous colours!

5. American Eagle Jeggings Buy One Get One 50% Off!
I love this sale so much. It’s the perfect time to stock up on essentials, and jeans are at the top of my list for things I wear ALL THE TIME. I love all AE jeans, but their jeggings are my all-time favs. They have the perfect amount of stretch, they keep their shape and they are uber flattering.

Happy shopping!

My Fall Wish List!

My Fall Wish List!

I’ve mentioned in a previous post that I’m going to try and keep my seasonal closet to less than 40 pieces, and I’m starting to think about some essential pieces to add to what I already own. This is what I’m looking for:

1- Black Skinny Jeans
I really want a pair with holes only in the knees and they need to be VERY black. These are some of the ones I’m considering (click on the pictures for more details!):

2- Black Flats
I’m trying to distance myself from the typical ballet flat and am looking for a more interesting flat shoe. Something that would look good with and without black tights. Some options:

3- Long-sleeve Maxi Dress
I’ve been on the hunt for this for years, still looking for the perfect colder-weather maxi dress. I don’t want it to be fussy, I’d love a slit and I want it to look effortless. I like these:

4. A lightweight cardigan
I want a long, thin, and super casual cardigan to wear over my boyfriend denim shorts and white distressed jeans (because, yes, I wear white after labour day!) I’m going to try these on:

5. The perfect black flat boot
Another yearly struggle to find the right pair. I have slim legs and calves and I don’t want them to look to bulky or too perfectly black (if that makes any sense). I’m leaning towards these pairs:

What I Wore – LBD Edition

What I Wore – LBD Edition

This “What I Wore” post is a bit different. It’s more of a “What I’m planning on buying” post! I mentioned earlier in the week that I bought the perfect little black dress from Topshop (at an unbelievable price nonetheless!). Now it’s time to accessorize it, and I wanted to find a way to dress down the dress a bit and make it work for the summer months.

I think a colourful statement necklace, a bright purse and strappy sandals with a thicker heel achieve an effortless look that works well in the warmer months. Truth be told, I’ll probably be purchasing this purse in a beautiful ivory colour, but I do love this bright yellow shade too!
