Sunrise Chased Us, We Never Stopped

 I'm so excited to share this post with you from my latest collaboration with Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren. As I'm sure you're aware -- I'm a HUGE fan of this line by Ralph Lauren and I always tend to re-wear the items over and over. This latest collection is no exception and I am so in love with the staples-meets-boho vibe of this look. This line is called "Inca Trail" and you can see this influence in the bright intricate weaves of the top as well as the red and yellow beading on the khaki jacket. The jeans are the absolute perfect pair of destroyed boyfriend denim and worn with the flowing peasant top, I felt ready for an adventure. I couldn't think of a better place to shoot this look than at sunset in the hills of Tuscany. I felt right at home, running through the fields as the sun was setting over the olive groves and grape vines that surrounded us. I love a magical moment like this.

This particular look was inspired by Tyler Knott Gregson's story for Denim & Supply's #ProjectWarehouse: night became morning, sunrise chased us, we never stopped. Make sure to check out the rest of the collection and more about Project Warehouse here or on their Instagram page @denimandsupplyRL. Also, make sure to keep checking in on the Project Warehouse page because they have a new competition starting very soon! And trust me -- the prizes are pretty amazing.

I hope you have an amazing weekend! xoxo


Thank you so much for visiting!

London, I've Missed You

Good morning and happy Wednesday! I've gotta admit -- hump day on the Amalfi Coast is not a bad thing. It's really sort of amazing. We decided to slow down a bit today and check out our local area of Praiano. It was just what we needed after so much sightseeing and trying to fit in as much as we can in this short amount of time. We're with a group of 7 people and I think everyone just needed a bit of a break from being a tourist for a moment. I love days like this where you just take it as it comes and don't need to worry about a thing.

I'm pretty excited to finally be digging into my trip photos and start showing them to you as well. These are from our second day in London, where we decided to go for a walk along the Thames and take in the beautiful views of the city. We both hadn't been there in quite a few years, so it was nice to see it with fresh eyes. We also found pretty much the best little market along the water that sold all the tastiest treats you could ever imagine. I think we spent about twenty pounds on brownies and Turkish delights. We might need to make another stop there on our way back through London...

I thought I was being pretty smart and layering up for the day, but I had forgotten just how cold that London wind can be. The temperature actually said a few degrees warmer than here on the Amalfi Coast, but trust me when I say that you cannot judge clothing based on that alone. I've been walking around in sleeveless tops and shorts here and actually got a sunburn the other day, whereas I would have been much happier in a parka, sweater, scarf and jeans in London. But, since I had already left the hotel and taken a few trains to get to the river, I was committed and had to live with it. My theory is that you just need to own it and act as if you aren't cold. It actually helps to not feel like you want to die! Plus, I'm from Canada, so a little chill in the air isn't going to kill me :)

Festival Fringe Dress with Wild & Heart

Happy Monday!! I hope you had an amazing weekend! We arrived on the Amalfi Coast yesterday and I truly can't believe how beautiful it is. We checked out Amalfi, Positano and Ravello today and each one was more gorgeous than the last. I can't wait to show you the photos! We have been pretty snap happy! This is my last set of photos before I start digging into the ones from our trip, so you'll start seeing them very soon.

In the meantime, I'm so happy to show you this last set of photos from my festival style collaboration with Wild & Heart! I was so excited when I saw this fringe dress and couldn't wait to take photos of it. It turns out we were a bit jinxed with it because whenever we were about to set out to shoot it the rain would get too heavy, making it impossible to shoot. In the end, we did get a pause from the rain but I can't even tell you how freezing cold it was. Luckily, if you are attending Coachella you won't have to worry about the cold at all! This dress will be so ideal for that desert heat -- it will truly feel like you are wearing nothing at all. I love a dress like this -- something about it feels so sexy.

If you are going to Coachella next weekend or another festival in the near future, make sure to check out my other festival style posts from my collab with Wild and Heart! They have got the absolute best selection of festival appropriate clothes and anything you could ever need to be transformed into the ultimate boho babe. Check out the other posts here, here, here & here.

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day! xoxo

Festival Poncho with Wild & Heart

Happy Thursday!! It's an exciting day because Coachella starts tomorrow! I'm a little sad that I'm not able to go to the festival this year, but I am in Italy, so I really don't mind too much. But just because I'm not attending doesn't mean that I didn't prepare some festival appropriate for you :)

This is my most boho of all the looks I prepared for my collab with Wild & Heart and I loooved dancing around on the sand in it. The poncho is perfect for keeping you warm on the chilly nights, or if it starts raining (like it did here). 

I've got to head out for a day of exploring, but I hope you enjoy this look! And I really hope that you enjoy Coachella if you're lucky enough to go. xoxo

Festival Fringe with Wild & Heart

I hope you are having an amazing Easter! We are in London at the moment and had actually almost forgotten that it was Easter, but the quietness of the city and the shop closures quickly reminded us. It was actually quite nice though -- we ended up meeting my cousin and his fiance for a late brunch in Brixton and went for a walk around Regents Park without all the usual crowds and line ups everywhere. We then had a traditional English pub supper and are calling it an early night to get up for our flight to Rome in the morning. I really can't wait to get to Italy and finally settle into our holiday. I think I mentioned it a while ago, but Ollie and I have both lived in London at different times so it has been so much fun revisiting our old haunts and seeing what is the same and what has changed since we were last here. I'm pretty sad that we are leaving so quickly, but I'm so so happy that we decided to do this stopover in London before heading to meet up with his family for the rest of our holiday. I'ts making me quite nostalgic to be honest!

So on to the important part, which is the 3rd installment of my festival fashion collab with Wild & Heart! As I'm sure you can tell by now, I'm pretty obsessed with the fringe trend and I really can't get enough. This look is my version of wearing fringe while steering clear of becoming too boho. Don't get me wrong -- I loooove me some boho style, but I know it's not for everyone and I wanted to give plenty of options for everbody. And so, this time I decided to go with this gorgeous Cleobella off-the-shoulder top and pair it with black skinny jeans and a Chambray top for when it gets chilly. I could see myself wearing this look even when not at a festival so that makes me like it even more. I hope you do too! xoxo

Festival Leopard with Wild & Heart

Wahoo!! It's time for the long weekend and for me, that means that we are finally leaving for our trip to London and Italy. I feel like I've been anticipating this trip for such a long time that I can't believe it's finally here. I've just got a morning fitting to do and then it's time for relaxing, drinking wine and eating my body weight in carbs every day from here on out. 

But on to the fun part for everyone else -- more festival style!! The last look was about being a gypsy goddess in a beautiful maxi dress and fringed leather jacket, but this look is all about the fun! This is the perfect outfit for getting down and dirty in the dusty grounds and is the ultimate look for being comfortable while dancing the entire day. And you can trust me on this because we took these photos in the absolute pouring rain and I was having a blast! The best part about this look is that the shorts have little bells on the drawstrings so there is the prettiest jingling sound every time you move. Now you know these MUST have been made especially for this occasion. I'm also super obsessed with the backpack. There's a surprising amount of space, it's 100% hands free and it is pretty much the best backpack I've seen. I know that Wild & Heart will be getting the bag in early May, but everything else is in store now so make sure to check them out! 

I hope you have an amazing Easter and I can't wait to show you my next festival look! xoxo
