Hey everyone!! I know have been away for a super long time and to be honest, I am really disappointed with myself. I had so much passion for my blog and there is so much that I want to do with this blog. When it wasn’t moving as fast as I wanted it to, I honestly gave up. While I have been away, so much has happened in my life and for whatever, reason this whole blogging thing hasn’t left my system. I honestly feel like this is what am meant to do and I still have so much passion and love for blogging. Whenever I picture my life, it is always me as a blogger, mother, wife. I thought not blogging for so long would have gotten me to forget about it but I just can’t get it out of my system. I have been thinking about making this post for a long time and I keep procrastinating. I keep making up excuses in my head as to why I don’t want to blog anymore but deep down I know this is something that I am passionate about. I have tried so hard to forget about blogging but I just keep coming back to it. I was listening to a podcast by Brandon Burchard, he was talking about finding life’s purpose and he goes on to say when you are meant to do something it will haunt you until you do something about it. I feel like that is how it has been for me with this whole blogging thing. I guess what am trying to say is that if there is something you have been thinking about doing and something has been holding you back trust me figure out a way to to get done.

I want to make a couple of changes on my blog in terms of what I post. I want to share more of my life and include my family, share mommy moments and of course fashion. Like I said earlier, a lot has changed in my life some not so good and some really great and I can’t wait to share with you guys!! I also think it’s time for this blog to get a facelift haha!! Anyways, I won’t take anymore your time. Thank you so much for reading this post, hope you keep in touch. Is there anything that you have given up on but still think about every day? Please share!!!

casual stripes

Casual stripes and denim are the perfect summer combination, stripes are a must in any closet. My wardrobe would not be complete without a (few) casual stripes tops. Stripes makes for the perfect summer outfit. I am starting to collect one too many stripe tops in my closet, I have a couple of posts here, and here that I share a little but of my love for stripes.

There are so many different kinds of casual stripe top that you can get your hands on. The most classic stripe is, of course, the white and navy stripes. I would definitely invest a little bit more money on a white and navy stripe top. It is such a timeless colour and it looks so good with denim and a bit of red.

I use to only wear skinny jeans. You know when you rediscover things in your own closet? That’s what happened with these jeans. I totally forgot how comfortable they are and how much I miss wearing them. Found these pairs from Old navy, and I love how they fit and the price wasn’t bad either. I linked a lot of options for you guys below so make sure to check them out!! thank you so much for stopping by!

white top

White top and denim has to be my favourite combo, it is just so effortless, crisp, relaxed and super easy going. It just feels like I got up and put on a white top and denim shorts together. I fell in love with this top when I saw it in Zara. This lady was looking at it and I was just praying she’d put it back on the rack and she did. I wasted no time grabbing it haha. I love the detail on the top, it makes the top look dressy and casual which is the best of both worlds. It’s super airy and very lightweight it’s perfect for a day at the beach.

Its has been sweltering the past week in Toronto, (am not complaning at all, I love the hot weather) so I have been basically living in shorts and white tops. I love the hot weather because I get to wear outfits like this! Thank you so much for stopping by.

Spent the day the lake and it was so good being there by the water, I haven’t gotten a chance to go to the beach all summer so this was a really good treat.

Ps. how cute are these slippers? I got them from old navy for under $10! It was the last one.

stripe dress

I love this striped dress and the way it fits! I have a little obsession with stripes, as soon as I see stripes, I just gravitate towards it also mentioned in this post here. I have to be honest, I am not really a dress kind of girl I would choose a pair of jeans over anything. This stripe dress, however, makes me want to be a dress kind of girl. I love how it can be dressed down with sneakers and a denim jacket like how I wore it here. I have also tried it with heels and it looks so good. The price was a steal! This stripe dress from Zara is under $20! It’s a basic piece they have each year. If you are looking for the perfect summer dress that can worn casual or dressed up, this dress it!

I’ll link some other options for you guys to take a look.

off the shoulder top6

Off the shoulder tops are so major right now, it’s kinda crazy. I know you guys have been seeing it too. Everyone is wearing off the shoulder top. I totally understand why it made a comeback and it is so big for summer. I don’t know about you guys but wearing this top has me feeling all types of ways. I feel super sex but am not showing too much skin. Ok, wait maybe I am but you know what I mean. My breasts are not hanging out, not like I have any haha. I can’t wait to pick up another top like this. This one I’m wearing is from Zara and I believe it came two colours. This white one and light blue one.

denim cut offs 1

Denim cut offs!! Summer is in full effect and I couldn’t be happier, it is definitely my favourite season. I love summer outfits, and my go to outfit is cut offs and tank or a tee. These cut offs are probably one of my favourite pairs, I got this pair last year and I love the fit and the wash. I love easy and comfortable outfits and summer is perfect for that. With any type of denim, there are so many ways to wear them.

I love wearing my cut offs with sneakers and flats. I am seriously all about comfort, I don’t want to be hot and uncomfortable. This look is perfect for a day out to the beach or spending time with friends or even a bbq. I am definitely going to be living in my denim cut off.

never give upNever give up anything that you want to accomplish, a goal you want to achieve, or anything that you want to make a reality. Ps I know I look super dressed up but I promise I have a good reason lol. I finally graduated!! You guys like I still can not believe I am a graduate!! I can not begin to tell you what I have been through going to school and to be able to say I am graduate for me is such an accomplishment. So today I am here to tell to never give up on a dream, or goal. I went through so much and I had to overcome so many obstacles and there were so many times I wanted to give up because I didn’t think graduating was going to be my reality. Just to give a few examples of some of the obstacles I had overcome, my program is a two-year program but it took me pretty much four years to complete and not because I was failing my classes, haha I promise. I got pregnant in my first year, so I had to take a year off, I had to wait another year because I couldn’t secure placement. You guys that’s not even half of the things that happened to me. I knew I couldn’t give up because anything worth having you have to struggle through. Not giving up has made realize that if you set a goal and it is something that you are passionate about, it keeps you up at night, then never give up on it! There will be struggles, but think about how amazing it’s going to feel when that goal is accomplished and keep that dream in your mind, visualize it every day until whatever goal it is has become a reality. Just remember that everybody goes through struggles, we all just have different struggles and it is how you deal with those struggles that will determine if come out on top or not. We werent created to just walk through life with the challenges or struggles that we face, we were given the ability to figure things out. Believe in your ability to figure things out.

simple outfits3

Simple outfits are the way to go for me, I seriously want to get up and just put my outfits on. I don’t want to have to think about putting an outfit together, and since its summer it makes it even easier! I think that’s why I love the hot weather so much, you really don’t have to think about the ten things you have to layer. I love this simple outfit here, wearing my mom jeans and a long sleeve top. This outfit is perfect for running errands, or meeting up with friends over brunch.

Over the weekend, went out for bae birthday, had breakfast and dinner,  am sorry but I couldn’t take any pictures because someone was too cranky to wait for all the food to come, am not going to say who lol. Took these pictures after we had dinner, it was such a quick photo shot because it was literally like five minutes of us taking pictures and the pictures came out so good, wanted to share it with a post.
