Last New Years, I went away to St Maarten with my grandma to celebrate the upcoming year. It was a paradise on earth! The island is gorgeous, the people are so very kind, and the culture is rich! I was so devastated to hear that hurricane Irma had destroyed it all. It is so hard to believe that everything is gone; the hotel room in which I stayed, the beach on which I walked, everything. I would like to give my condolences to all who were affected by this disaster. To everyone there, I hope that you are safe and unharmed. To the bus driver who gave me a tour of the island, the young gentlemen with which I went four-wheeling, the owners and stable hands of Lucky Stable with whom I went horseback riding in the mountain, to the staff of Coconut Reef with whom I went snorkelling, my heart goes out to you. I send my prayers and positive thoughts in your direction, and hope that you will be able to recover swiftly from Irma’s wrath.
Anyone who has been in university knows that it is sometimes challenging to find that perfect first-day outfit that sets the pace for the remainder of the semester. Here are a few simple fall looks to get into the school spirit.
This look is for anyone who is not quite ready to let go of summer. This beautiful blue cold-shoulder blouse and white jeans are the perfect compromise of summer style and fall denim. Can even be paired with a grey knit cardigan during colder days.

This look is for anyone whose school blasts the AC and makes it just as cold as Alaska (I am part of this group). It is cute and comfy, and definitely fits in with autumn colours.

This blouse and this pair of shorts are actually from a few summers back, hence are no longer available. However, they make for a cute outfit, and it is very easy to interchange the blouse for one of a different colour or style. The bag is by Karl Lagerfeld; it is still available, white however is sold out.
One can never have enough white blouses! They are all unique and style possibilities are endless!
My favourite beauty items!
Think pink! Left-hand blouse is from Laura, however is no longer available. Middle blouse is from Le Château, and is on sale right now! Right-hand blouse is from Melanie Lyne, and is on sale right now!
As we all know, the end of August is a busy hustle of back to school preparations and labor day party planning. So, I decided to squeeze in a quick shopping trip to Montreal before life starts to get crazy again.
Cold-shoulder blouse with frills at RW&Co for $70. This blouse is very comfortable and I absolutely love the sleeves! The Natalie white denim skinny pant with cuff is also from RW&Co for $70 as well. The denim is thick, which makes the jeans opaque and gives it that real denim feel, while still being stretchy. I love the white on white look here! Makes for a great summer ootd!
I paired the white blouse with the linen-blend pencil skirt from RW&Co. I absolutely love the belt and the front and back slits! This skirt can easily be dressed up with a blouse or dressed down with a simple white tee.
I found this Yamakazi sweater in heather warm grey, made by The Group by Babaton, sold at Aritzia for $200. This 100% cashmere sweater can be worn by itself, or layered with a blazer or pea coat during the colder weather.
I am completely in love with this bell-sleeve sheath dress! It is from the Calvin Klein outlet and is sold for $145. This raisin colour is perfect for fall and brings out the warm glow of what is left of my summer tan, hahaha! This also makes for the perfect work to night out dress!
I found this draped leather trim wool blend coat at Holt Renfrew for $318. It is made by Soia & Kyo, whom I utterly love their wool coats! The belted look is one of my favourites, and I very much adore the leather accents of the sleeves and pockets!
