Summer is Almost Here!!



It has finally arrived ...
that time of the year, in Toronto, where temperatures are reaching  the mid 20 degree Celsius, and with the rise in temperatures - I find myself reaching for softer colours. This past weekend Canada celebrated Victoria Day, - which meant a most welcomed long-weekend. We divided our time between country and city homes and with all the fun and excitement outfit photos were not taken, so here is a little throw back to last summer ...


While the temperatures may be warm during the day, it can feel a little chilly when  you are in the shade or the sun goes down, so one of my must have accessories is a scarf that can double as a shawl, and when wearing white can easily be used as a barrier between you and the sitting surface.

 Along with being practical - a scarf can add a little personality and colour to finish your outfit.







Outfit Details (all items are previous seasons): pants - Blue spice; top - Banana Republic ; accessories: scarf - DiFirenze ; sunglasses -Roberto Cavalli ; wedge shoes - Splendid ; orange bracelet - Herm├Ęs; tote - Louis Vuitton

5 Things I'm Loving Right Now ...




1. Foundation Primer - Hydrating - Laura Mercier: This little unexpected gem came as a sample in my Holt Renfrew Spring Beauty Bag. Even though it's meant to go under your foundation, I use it on its own and find that it just softens the overall look of my face. I noticed LM offers one that is oil free and as the weather warms up I may have to give it a try; but for now this primer is doing great. I did use it under foundation a couple of times and was pleased to discover my foundation went on with greater ease and the overall finish was silky smooth.

2. Ombrelle - SPF 60 Face Stick- Garnier: Last summer I used the SPF 50+ face stick and was most pleased to not end up with red nose and forehead (when I remembered to apply it) - this year with the weather man predicating an extremely hot summer I'm preparing with SPF 60. I loved the compact size (think small glue stick)- easily tucks into a pocket as it does a hand bag, for those unexpected afternoons on a patio sipping some cold beverages.

3. Ballet Slippers nail polish - Essie: While I am adventurous with my toe polish when it comes to my hands I like to keep my nail colour neutral/simple and this Essie shade is one of my summer favs.

4. Cherry Blossoms - High Park: Each year I look forward to Mother Nature's show of the cherry blossoms at High Park. This year with the warmer temps, followed by a cold snap in April ~ the show was a little sparse. But, I did manage to find these beauties by the tennis courts off the Bloor street entrance and was tickled pink (punt intended) to take in the blossoming delight.

5. Chuck Taylor All Star sneakers - Converse: These have been my go to for getting around Toronto, whether I'm wearing jeans, shorts, or a casual dress - they seem to go with everything and are tres comfortable. Can't wait to get my white ones in rotation and have been lusting over a red pair too!!

What are you loving right now?
