Street Style Inspiration: 1 // 2 // 3


Well here’s another 90s trend that I am full heartedly in favour of: the slip dress. Truth be told during a certain era these were pretty much all I wore. But even though I have been there and worn that, this is one trend I think is forgiving enough for a second round. I always love a mix of masculine and feminine and obviously a slip is pretty perfect for that (as the above ladies demonstrate). They are also pretty great for layering (ie. fall!). So there you go: slip dress round two.

It’s August. It’s hot and sweaty. This is the time of year where practicality reigns over fashion. When you are a hot sweaty mess (as I was this past weekend), you just want something simple. But not sloppy, you know? An easy dress is a great alternative to my uniform of cutoffs and tees. They are great for brunch, patio drinks etc. and I would have been happy to wear any of these this past weekend where I indulged in all of those activities. With these dresses as inspiration, I’ll be remedying my wardrobe situation soon enough. xx

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of those legendary sort of shopping affairs. The deals are pretty amazing plus since they are actually on fall stuff you are guaranteed to get lots of wear out of your shopping scores before the season is over. There isn’t an actual Nordstrom here (yet) so I have to make do with the online selection – which isn’t too shabby! Look at all these great pieces: buttery leather, silky plaids and stylish knits – all essential items for your fall wardrobe. But one caveat – if you want them get on it now. It all ends after the weekend. xx

This one is a bit out there even by my standards but it has become to prevalent to ignore! Cartoon prints are hot, ranging from cheap Mickey Mouse tees to Spongebob by way of Moschino. Cultural kitsch as it might be, when even high end lines like Givenchy are getting in on things, it will likely stick around for more than a season. Admittedly, the bright yellow stuff is a bit beyond my reach but I do really like the subtle Mickey and Bambi prints. Kawaii.

I was a little behind on spotting this trend but I’m on it now. But here we have it: the triumphant return of the Adidas Adilette slide. I guess this is an offshoot of that whole normcore thing but these I approve of. They are black and white, super simple in form and comfortable. Hello holy grail footwear. Get them now to enjoy for the rest of the summer. xx
