This orange tone is super on-trend at the moment and makes for such a rich and saturated colour for the Summer! Accessorized with gold-toned pieces, this look is high quality with designer items, such as the Chanel bag and Christian Louboutin heels. Moreover, it is made fun with statement fashion jewelry that is cute and affordable!

A dressy yet casual way of styling a neutral-coloured pair of paperboy pants. I think this outfit is perfect during Summer for a dinner or a night out with friends. Alternatively, these pants can be styled with more conservative clothing for a business casual office look. I decided to keep the outfit relatively simple with not much accessorizing or variation in colours and to put the emphasis and focus on the shiny and jewelled snake bracelet. I like how it serves the same purpose as a typical gold bracelet, yet is so much more bold and definitely adds personality to the overall look.

Life update: I am keeping busy at work teaching leadership courses and guarding full-time down at the beach. I am very happy to be spending most of my time outdoors and to be getting lots of sun! If you have seen my IG stories lately, you know that the tan line game is real haha. #lifeguardproblems

Other than that, I am looking forward to my last year of my undergraduate degree. As much as I believe that school is important, I cannot wait to graduate this coming Spring! I am also looking at purchasing a new phone and my first car within the year, so be prepared for even more budgeting tips as my budget just got tighter….In all honesty, it is difficult being on a tight budget and paying for school out of pocket as I go through it. It may not seem like it right now, but the benefits for sure outweigh the cons. I will be graduating debt-free, which is such a big accomplishment in itself, but I have also learned so much about  managing my money appropriately and I have gained a new found appreciation for the value of money.

Have a lovely weekend, xox

4 Ways To Wear Leopard Print

Leopard print goes back as far as Ancient Egypt and today is now a prominent pattern in the world of fashion. Representative of boldness, confidence, and glamour. I believe this trend will never truly go out of style. I have always loved this particular print as far as my memory goes. Even as a toddler, I wanted to wear my spots!

A bright and colourful look to take on the Summer heat! Spice up your wardrobe with a hot pink blouse, or any colour of your choice, and be up to date with 2019’s neon fashion trend. Instead of purchasing something that will be out of style later and that you will not be able to reuse, try finding something that suits your body type, personal style and personality and that you will be able to mix with many items in your current wardrobe.

As much as I like more of a classic wardrobe with neutral tones, I find myself drawn to very saturated colours for the Summer. It makes me think of the Amalfi coast, with its vivid azure ocean and magenta-coloured flowers found throughout the towns.

Shop this look: Lilysilk blouse (on sale!) | Kensie denim (similar here) | Sam Edelman heels | Ava & Aiden rings (similar here) | Zara belt (out of season) | Chanel wallet

A simple yet very chic outfit! Using basic pieces as the foundation of the look, and building it up with designer accessories and quality gold jewelry. Because I am using a very neutral colour palette of black and white, I decided to be bolder in my choice of belt. This gold chain and pearl belt from Zara is a total Chanel dupe that came into fashion in 2018.
