Silk Flowers

This week, Fashion Magazine asked their style panel how to wear silk during the hot summer months. Silk, while it’s very breathable, also allows for sweat to leave some embarrassing pit-stains :(  which could be problematic on hot days. But, with help from a good antiperspirant (I love this one from Dove) I spend my summers sweat-free in luxurious silks! Here is how I told Fashion to style them.

This dress is clearly one of my favourites, seen here and here in each Spring/Summer season.

Fashion Magazine asked their style panel what they were wearing when we head up north during these beautiful summer weekends. I always tend to pack with basics that are easy to mix and match as the temperatures vary so much throughout one day. Here is what I told Fashion.

Being a tourist in your own city is one of the best ways to spend a stay-cation, but wearing the appropriate shoes is key in lasting the day. This season’s running shoes encourage being active and are super on trend. The light weight materials that the new sneakers are made with make them perfect for walking in all day and exploring the city. Two pairs of runners that I’m eyeing right now are these beautiful navy Nikes, perfect for the upcoming spring-to-fall transition, and these ladylike New Balance ones that are just simply adorable.

Last Spring I wore this same dress with an amazing pair of Nike high-tops that I had borrowed from my girl Katelynn.

Since dying my hair, almost 2 years ago, bright red, with the super talented Natalie of Image Makeover located on Queen St. W in Toronto, I’ve been rethinking how the colours of my clothing interacts with my hair. With unexpected hair colours being all the rage this summer, it is important to take a second look at your wardrobe to find those items that will make your hair makeover pop.

For fire red, my favourites are light sky blue and Kelly green. Here are some examples of how my hair pops when wearing these complementing shades: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7.

Do you have colourful hair? If so, what colours work best for you?

When Fashion Magazine asked me to discuss what to wear while in the office, I chose to discuss the simplest option, of the little black dress, with some great accessories to complete the outfit. Here is what I said.
