With every season comes new trends and fads that you just have to try. Most of these trends become passé in a blink of an eye, but a select few can actually turn into go-to staples in our wardrobe. 

Here are my trend predictions for summer sixteen:

  1. French Braids: Cute and practical for summer and fall months, but will disappear once the winter rolls around. This intricate hairstyle hasn’t been created to be hidden under toques. It’s like getting a tattoo and covering it up with makeup – what’s the point? After spending decent chunk of time out of your day splitting your hair into the perfect part, braiding, undoing the braid, then braiding again to perfectly match the other side until you A. give up or B. your arms go numb, you better show it off. French braids are basically pieces of art.
  2. Leather Backpack: Here to stay. Invest in a quality leather handbag or backpack, it is always helps to upgrade your look and will last a lifetime.
  3. Shirtdress: A neutral coloured shirtdress is something that will never go out of style and can be worn all year round. This sleek shift silhouette is super flattering and is chic enough to get away with around the office. I can definitely see myself swapping out the nude wedges for tights and ankle boots once the weather cools down in the fall.
  4. Choker Necklace: Fad. The choker popped up in 2014 as a nostalgic trend from the 90’s and was finally adopted by the masses this year. As a ’94 I couldn’t resist buying into it and I secretly hope this trend becomes a staple. It definitely has the potential with the launch of Pokémon Go and rumours of a Spice Girls reunion, however I really can’t see it lasting until next summer. But for right now, while there are more people trying to catch Pikachu on the street than swiping right on Tinder – long live the 90’s.

What I’m wearing: Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Shirtdress: Abercrombie & Fitch (It’s on sale right now!), Leather Backpack: VereVerto, Wedges: Winners, Bracelet: Alex & Ani, Watch: Daniel Wellington, Choker: Forever 21

Blue Jays Recap

IMG_0799

Brandon and I were lucky enough to score some amazing seats right behind the home dugout to the Blue Jays vs Kansas City Royals baseball game last night at the Rogers Centre. Naturally, we took advantage of the situation and brought our camera along to practice our sports photography. The MVP of the night goes to Donaldson who hit, not one but, two home runs leading the Jays to a 8-3 victory over Kansas City making for some happy Toronto fans. However, personally, I think Brandon and I hit the photography out of the park too! Check out our shots from the game below.

Head to the mall this Canada Day to shop the many seasonal sales taking place before celebrating this evening! At the time of this photoshoot in Paris I had paid full price for my outfit.
