A few months ago I along with a few other local bloggers were invited to go to the launch of the Kate Moss Topshop collection here in Calgary.

I was so excited to see how her well known personal style would reflect in her collection. The verdict? Great vintage inspired pieces that appeal to all sorts of styles. The quality of the pieces were really amazing too, you could tell a lot of thought and time went into each piece. Although I wish I could have gone home with everything I decided I couldn't leave the store without this tribal inspired dress. 

The dress is so cute on it's own but I what I realized was that it was a tad short on me so I thought why not pair it with jeans and have it as a tunic? I think it creates a really laid-back boho vibe and it is easily one of my favourite outfits this summer. The possibilities are endless with this dress! 

Have you ever worn a dress as a tunic? I'd love to know!

These past couple of days have been quite chilly here in Calgary and as a result the sun decided to take a vacay all weekend (I was NOT happy). When I took these photos yesterday, the sun finally decided to make an appearance! I was so happy because it was truly "golden hour" which of course makes for great lighting for photos. It's supposed to get warmer again this week which is such a relief because I'm not ready for Fall yet!

This neon sweater was one of the items I purchased from Joe Fresh when they had a huge sale a few weeks ago. I don't know what it is but I'm obsessed with neon especially if it's yellow! I know some people might think it's a little "highlighter" but when paired correctly it can look quite chic.

What do you think of neon? Would you wear it?

I hate to say this, but it looks and feels like Fall is almost here. 
The air is definitely changing and the evenings are chillier. In a way, I'm kinda excited for Fall to come since it's my favourite season but unfortunately Alberta kinda skips the season all together. It's basically two weeks then BOOM winter for almost the whole year.. major major SIGHS. 

On the bright side, the colder weather brings cute clothes like hats, boots, sweaters, coats the list can go on forever! Speaking of cute clothes, it's no secret that I love to shop but one thing I really don't like shopping for is jeans. I have such a hard time finding a pair that fit me. I'm short, curvy but with a smaller waist so there always tends to be a discrepancy in one of those areas. A few weeks ago, I was invited to go preview the new J.Crew at Market Mall here in Calgary and had the opportunity to get a pair of jeans. I tried these on and was actually surprised at how great they fit me. The higher waist is really flattering and ever since I've got them I can't seem to take them off! Nothing like the perfect pair of black jeans!
