I hope everyone had a great week! Today I’m sharing a summery OOTD featuring this palm print off-the-shoulder top from Cotton Couture. I love how airy and light the material is, and the best part – it doesn’t wrinkle, so its great for travel! I went away a couple weekends ago and packed it to wear to dinner with a pair of white jeans, and when I pulled it out of my suitcase it was the best surprise that there was not one wrinkle in the material! Cotton Couture is a cute little online boutique based in the US with a good variety of trendy pieces at reasonable price points. They were nice enough to send me this turquoise choker as well and I’m obsessed, you’ll definitely be seeing it pop up in my Instagram feed sometime soon!

On another note, Wednesday was my dads birthday so tonight we’re going bowling as a family – as per his request! He’s been wanting to go with all of us for a while, so we made sure to clear our schedules just for him. Other then that I’m taking it pretty easy this weekend and going to try and enjoy some time outside, maybe go for a hike on Saturday or something! Do you have any exciting plans for the weekend? I’d love to hear about them!
Just a reminder the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public today, and items will start selling out really fast! Everything will be restocked first thing this morning, so if your planning to purchase something from the sale make sure to place your orders while items are still in stock!
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekends, and for those of you in the US and Canada – long weekends! I spent my whole weekend outside with friends, celebrating Canada 150 and it was so much fun! Peter and I both had Monday off too so we went out for ice cream and shot this summer date night look.
…and can we talk about this adorable cheetah print clutch from AlusIndonesia!? I am obsessed! It adds the perfect splash of colour and print to tie any outfit together, and it’s also the perfect size to fit the essentials, which makes it easy to just grab and go. I have carried it almost every day this week, whether I was going to the mall, or out to dinner, it’s been glued to my arm, haha! If you haven’t heard of AlusIndonesia before, It’s an Etsy shop that carries a gorgeous range of purses, clutches, makeup bags, scarves and more! And I was lucky enough to get a coupon code for you guys if you see anything you like in their shop 🙂
Can we talk about how cute and summery this little pom pom top is!? I mentioned it in my ‘affordable spring clothing haul‘ post a few months back and have finally gotten around the wearing it. It’s no secret that I’m obsessed with the off the shoulder trend but these pom poms make it so much better! I feel like I should be somewhere tropical, with a big floppy hat on and a drink in my hand while wearing it hahah! Instead, I wore this outfit on a lunch date with Peter and it was just as good. We couldn’t have picked a better day to spend together, the weather was perfection.
Anyway, I mentioned in Wednesdays post that Peter and I have a wedding to go to tonight and I managed to pick an outfit up for Peter but I still have no idea what I’m going to wear. S.O.S!! I can’t seem to find any dresses that are catching my eye lately, and that actually look good on me. I’m going to run to the mall again today for a second look…fingers crossed!
I wore this lace tee out last week and got tons of compliments and questions about it so I figured it was blog worthy. It’s actually the same top I wore in a post back in February just in a different colour, and its grown to be one of my favorite tops! It’s from a couple seasons ago but I found the newer summer version online and linked it above, they’re basically the same top just the new one is sleeveless. I love them because the lace mixed with the rope detailing makes the top a statement on its own so you can keep the rest of your outfit really simple but still look put together. It was a hot day when I shot this look so I just wore my top with a nude bra but if I’m going out with family or friends I just throw a nude camisole on underneath and I’m good to go!
