Summer Sunday Feels

I LOVE Sundays. To me, Sundays were made for sleeping in, lounging, recharging, but also enjoying some Sunday Funday time! We had a family birthday party to go to this past weekend and I had the Sunday feels. I had no idea what I wanted to wear when I walked into my closet, but I knew that I didn’t want to have to think too much about it. And to my, and hubby’s surprise, I left the house in the first outfit and pair of shoes I put on… I know, shocker! 😉

The trick to that relaxed and effortless Sunday look that you can also feel fab enough to go to brunch in is having the right key pieces.

Here are a few tips on using pieces from your closet to create your summer sunday look:

  1. An effortless one piece outfit. I chose this polka dot H&M piece out of my closet because all I needed to do was literally throw it on and tie a bow. Done! Other pieces that would work well would be rompers/jumpsuits, a maxi dress, or a sheath dress.
  2. A pair of shoes you can “slip” into. I am a BIG fan of slip on shoes, mostly because I love the feeling of my feet being free. It must be the California girl in me that grew up in flippy floppies pretty much 365 days of the year. So when I discovered these mules I thought to myself, “slip on shoes that come in heel form?!” That was a no brainer for me!
  3. Statement accessory. I felt a hat worked best to pull this look together. Find whatever works for your outfit/mood/style to tie everything in.

Rainy Day Essentials

Living in Vancouver, you definitely learn to appreciate two things. The first is: sunshine, because when it’s sunny here, it’s BE-AU-TIFUL. And the second thing is a great rain jacket.

Here are the essentials that get me through those rainy days:

1. A Solid Rain Jacket. For a city that rains so much, you don’t see THAT many umbrellas. And I am all for this, because I am not the biggest fan of umbrellas. After living in NYC, I developed a secret fear of getting my eyes poked out by one of those unnecessarily pointed tips. Plus, why do umbrellas have to take up so much room?? 😉 I would much prefer a light rain jacket with a hood. I love this jacket because it has a feminine cinch at the waist, nice zipper detailing, and best of all there’s a little hood that can be zipped away.

2. A Pair of “Are those rain boots?” Rain Boots.  I love a cute pair of rain boots that have fun funky designs… but the forecast isn’t always accurate and sometimes that rainy day turns into a beautiful sunny day, which is exactly what happened the day these photos were taken. And when that happens, it’s good to be wearing a versatile boot.

3. Hair Texturizing Spray. There’s nothing that can ruin a good hair day like humidity and rain. When this happens, I like to spray my favorite sea salt spray into my hair and give it a scrunch to give my hair some texture and dimension. That way, I turn my frizz into something more manageable. My favorite texturizing spray since cutting my hair short is the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray infused with Dead Sea Salt & Sea Kelp. It can be found at Target and Ulta in the U.S. but I haven’t found it in Canada yet.

4. My Best Fur-iend. Okay, Toby, our little Corgi is pretty much an every day essential. The handsome little fellow even has his own rain jacket. It’s pretty much normal to see dogs in rain jackets in Vancouver. 🙂

I am a hopeless romantic. I still cry every time I watch The Notebook and don’t get me started on P.S. I love you.  There is something about the combination of black lace and red lips that screams romance to me. I like this outfit because it can be worn in the office but also has the versatility to be worn to a romantic dinner at the end of the work day. I love putting together a nice outfit without spending too much and it’s so do-able! My trick? When shopping, I search for affordable pieces with added embellishments. I love the embellished collar of this blouse and the studs along the waistline of the already beautiful lace skirt. Both pieces are from Forever 21!

To top off this look, I donned my skirted trench coat from H&M. This coat is perfect over skirts like this and is sure to make you feel a little more lady like.
