Whimsical Summer with Perrin

Despite running around shooting my own fashion outfits and working [super duper hard] on other endeavours, I have not forgotten my commitment to my 2017 fashion project! What's I'm noticing with this latest shoot with Perrin is that my fashion shooting has gotten a lot faster and more efficient -- whoo-hoo! We cranked out these photos like *that*, at brunch and then another outfit en route to ice cream :) it's a fantastic combination of knowing what works (for both posing and photographing) and feeling the wonderfully sunny summer vibes!





Q: What do you like best about summer fashion?
I like the casual nature of summer dressing. Dresses are easy to style, and you don’t have to worry about tights or pantyhose. Sandals and open toed shoes feel fun and relaxed. Flouncy skirts give a whimsical, feminine feeling.



Q: What are some common elements across your summer outfits?
Bright colours are definitely a must for summer. My skin tone works well with bold colours like teal, magenta…

Be Our Guest

I seem to have reached the age and season where my Facebook newsfeed is filled with pictures and posts of beautiful summer weddings. I haven't gotten to attend any myself but I know my time will come! In the meantime, I've been practicing for the eventual day, watch. Ahem.

Hi there :) Congratulations and thanks so much for having me!  Your dress is gorgeous and the venue is simply breathtaking.








What?? One of your bridesmaids is suddenly sick?  And you want me to step in? Oh my goodness, well, anything I can do to help!




All kidding aside, I had the honour of being a bridesmaid for my friends' wedding back in March and it was an absolutely incredible experience to be a part of their special day.
If I could've changed one teensy weensy thing, it'd be the weather! It snowed pretty heavily on the day of the wedding, and the group photo shoot (which was outdoors, in nothing but a bridesmaid dress + heels!) turned into a real test of my Canadian-ness.

Picnic Pairings

Summers are always jam-packed with events that your weekends can leave you as exhausted as your weekdays!
One low-key and cute date or hangout idea for those lazy weekends when you still want to do things but also want to relax is to go out on an old-school style picnic.

I honest-to-goodness feel so lucky that Nick likes to cook :9 Plus, I finally got to use my super-awesome picnic basket that I found for an absolutely steal at Kingston's Value Village (more on thrifty finds below!)



After pigging out in the park, it's nice to go for a stroll to burn off some of those calories :)
I made sure to wear comfy flat shoes (brand new for $25!) paired with a cute summer dress ($5 steal from 613 Flea!) topped off with a matching polka dotted sun hat ($5 from H&M sale!)



I love taking walks in parks because there's always something interesting to see. When these photos were taken, there were baby [Ryan] goslings everywhere!


Unfortunately, the mama geese have been known to be prett…
