THE COLORS OF RIOMAGGIORE

August 31, 2016


Though we only had a single day to explore Riomaggiore, the experience was so amazing, it left an impression which will last a lifetime! Even more stunning and picturesque then we could have imagined, we fell in love with Riomaggiore the moment we saw it! In fact, both Ninel and I were so captivated by this place, we already find ourselves planning our next visit so that we have a bit more time to see everything Riomagiorre has to offer. And it probably goes without saying, but if you guys are planning a trip to Italy, I definitely recommend taking at least a day to explore this charming sea-side comune!


BIRTHDAY GIRL

August 29, 2016


Good morning everyone! I would like to start by saying thank you for your wonderful birthday wishes! I can't even begin to tell you how much they mean to me, this is actually a fifth birthday we celebrate together and you've always been so incredibly sweet, kind and supportive! Thank you so much for making this day even more special for me!

If you've been following my blog for a while, you may already know that my family comes to visit me from Toronto every year so that we can spend my birthday together. Though what we do on my birthday always changes, sometimes we have a cozy little dinner at home, other times we travel somewhere fun as a family, the one tradition that became a constant in the past few years is going out to dinner the night before so that I get to blow out the candles on my birthday cake at exactly midnight. Another little perk of this arrangement is that I also get to open some of my presents a bit early, and I don't know about you, but patience is definitely not one of my virtues, so I definitely don't mind that at all!


HIGH RISE IN ROME

August 28, 2016


I have always loved skinny jeans and my current obsession du-jour is the high-rise version. Aside from the fact that they do a great job creating a very long and lean silhouette and they pair really well with most tops, from crop tops to button downs, especially if you leave a few buttons open at the bottom, the way I did in this look, in partnership with Lucky Brand.


VIVALUXURY ON INSTAGRAM

Good morning, Everyone! Hope your week is going great so far! I just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few recent Instagram moments! Hope you enjoy! :)


STAR EYES IN SANTA BARBARA

August 24, 2016


Of all the off the shoulder numbers I wore this summer ( some recent appearances here & here ), the Star Eyes top I'm sporting in today's post is definitely a favorite! Love the shirred, ruffle sleeves and the super easy silhouette, but I think that it's the little pearl detail that makes it so special to me.

Another reason it's been on heavy rotation this summer is because it pairs with dressy and casual bottoms equally well. So cute with anything denim, I also love the way it looks with tailored bottoms and strappy heels for a slightly more polished, dressy look ( paired with tailored shorts in this look )!


4 SHOE STYLES TO BUY THIS FALL

August 22, 2016


As I was organizing and updating my wardrobe with a few fall staples, I started thinking about which particular fall shoe styles I tend to wear the most. Despite the abundance of cute shoes out there, there were exactly 4 styles that came to mind right away. What is it that makes these particular styles my staples? Well, I think that it's really important to have a versatile shoe wardrobe complete with timeless pieces that make you look effortlessly pulled together and add a perfect finishing touch to any fall outfit, and these 4 pairs do exactly that! And so, since I haven't done a must have shoe post for this season yet, I thought it'd be fun to talk about the 4 pairs I will be practically living in this autumn.


MINT IN MALUBU

August 19, 2016


Good morning, Everyone! Just wanted to say a quick hello and share a few images of this casual outfit I wore in Malibu recently. Most of what I'm wearing in this post you've seen before, especially these One Teaspoon shorts ( previously worn here & here ) and my Chloe Inez bag ( last spotted here ) which I've been wearing pretty much non stop all summer long, but the mint crop top is brand new and already well on it's way to becoming of of my favorites. Obviously love the color! You know me, I'm obsessed with mint! But also, love the off-the-shoulder/on-the-shoulder option which sort of makes it two tops in one:)!
