YOU GUYS. Summer is here. You don’t even know how excited I am. Summer is easily my favourite season for many reasons; sunshine, beach days & patio drinks are just a few of them. The biggest reason? I love summer clothing. Dresses, skirts, shorts – they all make me a very happy girl.
Of course, summer clothing also means cute clothing, which is exactly what I look for when it comes time to date night on a warm summer evening. I went shopping at Dixie Outlet Mall to try to find the perfect summer date night outfit (for under $150!) and I came out very much on top with the #DixieDeals that I picked up.
To me, nothing says summer date night like a romantic maxi dress. There’s just something so lovely about flowing fabric and a bit of skin showing through in the right places. I found this floral print maxi dress at Winners (for only $35 – I love Winners for finding these great summer pieces at an amazing price), and it definitely fit the bill of everything that I look for; between the gorgeous summery print, open back and see through detailing in the front, it’s the perfect date night look. The best part about a flowy maxi like this? They provide lots of cover but are still cool enough for any situation, from a day at the beach to a summer festival to a romantic dinner under the stars.
When it comes to styling the outfit, I like to stick to pieces that are chic and continue to add on to the romantic vibe of the dress. The dress that I found has several different colours throughout, and I decided that pulling from the pale pink shade for shoes and a purse would be the perfect way to go. I fell hard for these strappy sandals I spotted at Aldo. The short heel means they’re comfortable and can last for hours (because the last thing you want to do while you’re on a date is start complaining about how much your feet hurt) and the millennial pink shade/rose gold metal detailing on the heel really got me. The scratch and save promo they were running didn’t hurt either; it brought them down to $64 before tax with 20% savings!
To finish the outfit off, I needed a small bag that matched with the dress. I found a super cute pink bag (for only $30) with a gold chain at Winners that went so well with the shoes and I absolutely had to get it. The woven front and tassel are so cute and the size is perfect for bringing a few things that I know I’ll need during my date.
How do you like to dress for a date night in the summer?

Ahhh. Spring has finally sprung; the trees are blooming, the sunshine is returning and the warmer weather is on its way. It means that it’s time to enjoy long weekends & cottage trips. Today I’m sharing my long weekend style essentials and some of the cute #DixieDeals I picked up at the Dixie Outlet Mall. These pieces will definitely be in heavy rotation for me this season and into the summer.
Since things are still warming up a little, a cute jacket (pictured from Urban Planet, $30) is an absolute must. I love having a lightweight jacket that I can just throw on over anything to protect from the wind and rain when I’m out. It isn’t too heavy but adds that little layer of protection from the elements and inevitable mosquitos.
For cooler nights spent by a bonfire, you can’t go wrong with a cozy sweater (sweater pictured from Dynamite, $2 – yes, $2). Wrap yourself up in a soft one to keep yourself warm when things get a little chilly. And if you’re like me and plan on spending your spring & summer going on adventures – there’s never been a better time than Canada’s 150th to get out and explore – grab a pair of sneakers (sneakers pictured from Urban Planet, $12) to keep your feet protected and comfortable.
Printed shorts (shorts pictured from GUESS, on sale for $32) are always a great option. Whether you go with a pattern or print (like these flamingos I’m so enamored with), they add a little personality to any outfit and they go great with a sweater. Pair them with a cute, loose tank (top pictured from Winners, $17) and you’ve got a perfect sunny day outfit.
Of course, if you’re planning on a weekend getaway you’ll need a cute bag that can hold everything you need. A large weekender bag (bag pictured from Call It Spring, on sale for $40) doubles as a purse and is great for packing your clothes, toiletries and anything else you need for a road trip, beach day or cottage escape.

What do you like to bring with you on a weekend getaway?
After the weather we’ve been having for the past couple of weeks in Toronto, I’m ready to call it a day and move down south. I may still have a few weeks to go until I can spend some time in the sunshine, but I decided to start getting ready early & give you a little warm weather inspo. I recently made a visit to Dixie Outlet Mall to pick up some Spring Break Essentials – let’s check them out!
Of course, when it comes to spring break, spending some quality time on the beach is always key. I love a good pair of jean shorts ($12 – for real – at Boathouse) for wearing to the beach; they’re comfortable and look cute over a bathing suit! A pair of cute shades is always a must-have as well. I managed to score an amazing deal on these heart-shaped sunnies (on sale for $6 at Aldo) that give me major Riverdale vibes.
Of course, a cute bathing suit is basically the uniform of spring break, and I fell in love with this one from Ardene (I picked up the matching set for only $9). It has this retro feel to it that I adore, and has a really great fit. Who knew you could pick up an amazing bathing suit at such a great price?
To finish off my casual daytime wear, I found these fantastic Montego Bay sandals from Payless ($15) that can be worn on the beach or out for drinks later on! The gold and white straps add a really nice feel to these.
When it comes to spring break essentials, I also like to pack a fun nighttime look that’s perfect for dinner along the beach or dancing all night with a margarita in hand. This romantic romper from Winners ($25, compared at $40) was the perfect choice for this; I can’t wait to wear it for drinks at my favourite spot in Costa Rica next month! And of course, the perfect outfit deserves the perfect shoes, so I decided to splurge a little with this gorgeous pair from Call It Spring ($60). They’re really light and the wedge makes them super comfortable, which makes wearing them for a few hours that much more bearable.
What do you bring along when you go on a spring break vacay?

Lately, I’ve been trying to expand my jewelry collection with a few timeless, classic pieces that I’ll be able to wear in many different situations. Of course, a new watch seemed to be the perfect place to turn; it can add a little professionalism to an outfit, a touch of sophistication, or a bit of fun to a look.
I recently got the chance to pick a piece from Medium Watches, a new Canadian-based watch brand (that ships worldwide). The brand launched with two lines, the The Debut (their women’s style) and The Intro (for the guys – but of course, you can switch it up to match your style).
Both styles are available in a nice selection of shades, and can be customized with different straps, making it easy to find the perfect piece to fit into your collection. They also add a really nice touch with the option of engraving so you can add a personal message for yourself or someone special.
Of course, I’m a sucker for rose gold, and had to go with The Debut in black with a gorgeous rose gold mesh strap. It suits my style so perfectly, and I love that the rose gold adds a nice hint of femininity to this sophisticated looking piece. What style would you choose?
