See the Joe Fresh x FLARE Collection

I haven't posted about a collab in awhile but just had to share this latest Canadian team-up with you. The fashion editors of FLARE have partnered up with Joe Fresh for a Fall '15 capsule collection and I'm loving the results. The exclusive line embodies the season’s most essential style notes to bring your wardrobe right up-to-date for the season. And since it's Joe Fresh - you guessed it - the prices are irresistible. 

The Joe Fresh x FLARE collection includes a pleated Lurex skirt, a classic tweed coat, 70’s-tinged flare jeans, a multi-checked print dress, a cozy funnel neck sweater and an extra-long, chunky cardigan. Everything in the lineup is priced from $29 to $99 (CAD) so I certainly plan on picking up a piece, or two, or three. 

“Why are we so excited about our collaboration with Joe Fresh? Because we sincerely believe that each item in the six-piece line, from the tweed car coat and shimmery pleated skirt to the high-waisted flared jeans and cable-knit cardi, is an instant wardrobe upgrader. Oh, and the fact that you can have everything [in the entire collection] for less than $300? It’s a fall fashion miracle,” write the editors of FLARE in their September issue.

The Joe Fresh x FLARE collection will be available September 10 in stores and online and the FLARE September issue is on newsstands now, featuring Karlie Kloss killing it in Joe Fresh on the cover. Think she'll be able to get Taylor Swift to wear Joe Fresh for fall? I can totes picture Taylor in that funnel sweater, can't you?

Thanks for bearing with me over the last little bit while I've indulged in some summer slacking. All this fall fashion is the best motivation, though, so expect the posts to pick up in the next little while. Love you!

3 Reasons You Need a Shirtdress This Summer

via Stockholm Street Style

Originally posted in The CLOSET

If I was stuck in a heatwave (which we are), and had to choose only one item of clothing to wear (which I sincerely hope to never, ever have to do), I would always choose the dress. I love dresses. I live in dresses. And when it comes to helping my clients choose their dream summer wardrobes, dresses are always part of the equation.

While my obsessions come and go, I always come back to the classic shirtdress. It's easy to throw on, it's flattering on almost every figure, and always looks super chic. The menswear-inspired piece is inherently cool on its own of course, but as some of my fave street stylers have proven time and time again, it's all about choosing the right accessories to make the outfit epic.

See 3 cute & compelling cases for the shirtdress below. Stay cool (even though you already are....)

SUMMER STYLE CLASS | 3 Ways to Do Off-Duty Like an It Girl

via Blog and the City

Originally posted in The Fashion Scoop

Fridays are always good, but this is not just any Friday. It's the Friday before the long weekend (yay!) and like so many of you, I plan on making the most of these next 3 days. For people who are camping this weekend, please stop reading now, douse yourself in OFF, and come back to us once you've come to your senses. Camping is for tees, joggers and, for the hardcore fashion peeps like me, cute casual looks like these. For the rest of us, it's time to chat off-duty summer style. 

There's the time-off outfits we all wear when we know we won't be seeing anyone. Do All-Day PJ's ring a bell? But for those precious vacation hours when we're meeting friends for lunch, heading to a fun backyard bbq, or going out for date night, it's always a bonus to look amazing. Here's how I suggest you do it:

BE A BOHO BEAUTY | Tassels, fringe & flowy dresses will help you feel like a boho goddess, whether you're hitting up a music festival or just heading to the Market. Inspiration: Pretty Little Liars' Shay Mitchell's flowy beach waves (use a salt spray to mimic her tousled beachy perfection), sweet cotton dress and cool leather sandals. A fun straw fedora will protect your locks from the sun and/or rain (fingers crossed for sun, please) when you're outside. 

BE A MODERN MUSE | Let's face it: a modern style influencer like Olivia Palermo never really goes 'off-duty'. If you always like to look polished like OP, opt for sleek black & white pieces which mix & match perfectly if you decide to head away for the weekend. Don't forget sky-high sandals, an enviably awesome watch and a pop-bright handbag. Oh, and chic don't-bother-me sunnies - after all, the paparazzi doesn't take time off either. 

HAVE A GARDEN PARTY | Want to look sweet and summer-ready like Taylor Swift? Fun florals, either as a dress or matching set, will help you bring out your feminine side this weekend no matter what's on the agenda. Keep it low key with cute sneakers or add heels for a flirty date night look.

Scroll down for 3 ways to do off-duty like an It girl. Happy looooong weekend!

5 Ways to Get Out of a Summer Style Rut

Originally posted in The LOOK

While summer is the most laid-back of the seasons when it comes to fashion, I know so many women who still struggle on the daily with what to wear. More specifically, they struggle with getting out of their style rut. It's happened to the best of us. You know, your work uniform. Your weekend uniform. Your gym uniform. So many of us have the tendency to reach for the same colours, the same styles, the 'practical' choices when we're shopping because it's easy, it's safe and we know it's going to work on us. The result? Fashion fatigue. Zzzz...

Luckily, all it takes is a few key summer pieces to take your summer outfits from boring to beyooond. I've hit up some of my fave street style blogs to help inspire you out of your summer style rut right now, and they're all incredibly easy to pull off. Read on for my 5 simple summer tricks to add instant interest to your wardrobe...

FASHION CLASS | Score Effortless Summer Style in Seconds

via Sincerely Jules on Instagram

Originally posted in The Fashion Scoop

The middle of July is one of my favourite times of summer. The stresses of end-of-school have subsided, work has resumed but at a much less frantic pace, and I haven't even started to think about fall yet. Oops, just did. My wardrobe has relaxed a bit, too. While I always like to look polished and put together, it just doesn't feel right to spend loads of time putting together outfits this time of year. 

My summer fashion philosophy? If you can throw it on and go, it's good. I mean, I don't even want to see an ironing board until September. Luckily, there are loads of stylish options for women like me who want to be lazy but don't want to sacrifice their style in the process - from easy, breezy summer dresses to chic basics that you'll rely on summer after summer. 

Want to look like your favourite Instagrammers? I've rounded up the pieces you need to score effortless summer style in seconds. After all, I'm sure you have more important things to do than worry about your outfit, like, um, sangria? Yup, thought so...
