Soak Up The Sun

I wrote in my previous post that we have had scorching hot weather, and I must have jinxed it because it truly feels like fall where I live now. I wore a leather jacket yesterday and I'm currently writing this post bundled up in a big sweater. I did take some photos of me laying out last week when the weather was beautiful, wearing a Ten Tree Apparel "Soak Up The Sun" shirt. I get a little sad looking at these photos. I'm seriously hoping the weather gets warmer.

Floral Dress








Here is my look for today!

I'm a sucker for anything floral so when I received this Pink Martini Collection dress I was ecstatic to have an entire dress with a beautiful bold floral print. I thought I would let the dress stand on its own with minimal accessories, but keep the bohemian style with a hat. 
I took these photos just as the sun was setting. Just being in my backyard full of flowers and green grass made me sad that summer is soon coming to end. I will be putting together a ton of fall outfits for my blog soon, but don't worry I will still make sure to incorporate some summer posts!!

Lululemon Top


We went through a slight cold spell last week, but this week is back to scorching hot summer weather. I've been taking full advantage of the weather and making sure I'm outside as much as possible. I found the perfect little spot on my balcony in the morning that has enough sun and shade, so it's possible for me to still see my screen to edit, but enough sun to get a bit of a tan. My backyard is my happy place, for relaxing in the morning, drinking coffee and eating fruit.


When I was in Muskoka visiting my best friend who works at Clevelands House Resort, I purchased this Lululemon sports bra/bathing suit. The resort is so nice and one morning while I was visiting, we set out to Abbeys bakehouse for some breakfast. The little bakehouse is a 19th century church and is adorable. Beside the bakehouse was a pop up Lululemon shop. Being the shopaholic that I am, I obviously had to take a look. It was so cool walking up to a small little pop up trailer full of Lululemon. I purchased this mint bathing suit top/sports bra. I'm pretty positive its more of a bathing suit, but this is also great for yoga.

White Crop Top










 Here is my look for today!

I've been embracing the crop top as much as possible lately and this long sleeve knit is a perfect transitional piece for end of summer, leading into fall. However, it was scorching hot the other night so rolling up the sleeves was a must, and pairing a slim shorter skirt made it an appropriate outfit for summer.

Ripped Jeans





Completely oblivious I had blue lips.





 Here is my look for today!

This is the outfit I wore the other day when I spent my day downtown Toronto shopping around Yorkville and grabbing lunch on a patio. It was such a beautiful day so the jeans were pushing it a bit, but I figured the rips gave them a summer look and was a bit breezy. I have been obsessing over Marble Slab lately, and my favourite flavour is cotton candy ice cream with bubble gum bits, nerds and marshmallows. Yes, I have the appetite of a 10 year old. I wasn't aware, as I was devouring my ice cream, that my whole mouth turned blue. Sorry for the blue ice cream/pink lipstick mouth.

Hammock Life



I spent another amazing day at my friends cottage yesterday. I mentioned in my previous cottage post (here) that I spent most of my time drinking wine and laying out on the hammock. To be honest thats pretty much what I did again. I did venture out a bit this time with a little swim, a tour around the lake on a sea-doo and some more paddle boarding. 


Being a massive Vogue and Blake Lively fan, it was a no brainer picking this magazine up.



There was the most beautiful sunset last night. Nothing nicer then cuddling up on a hammock with some tea and watching the sunset. Bliss.

Sister's Birthday


The other day was my sisters birthday and we both had the day off to do whatever we wanted. We started with a 5k run by the lake, which isn't an ideal relaxing birthday morning, but we always feel better after runs. Then we turned super girly and got shellac manicures, did some shopping (so many sales) and finished with a lobster dinner in my backyard with my family. Pretty much my ideal day with my sister.



The lobster was absolutely delicious, but I was a little sad and skeptical about this full dead lobster just staring at me. Poor guys.



Finished off with a little jump on my trampoline.
