FASHION: Brighten Up Your Summer Blues

Mixing up patterns and colours is a great way to brighten up your look, especially during these overcast summer days. As we gear up to say goodbye to another highly anticipated season (that we never really got a chance to enjoy), it’s time to think about fall fashion and with that comes button ups and trousers, my favourites trends. September is the perfect month to play with a few of your summer favourites and mixing them with your fall favourites. Try playing with different colours, patterns and trends to create your own unique look.

One of my favourite trends that I love wearing during all four Canadian seasons is a button up collared shirt. Whether it’s sheer, black or chambray, it is the perfect trend that can be transitioned from season to season and day to night.

It’s no secret that I am ombré obsessed, which explains exactly why I love this ombré green to blue shirt. I opted to pair it with a subtle blue pattern trouser to create a fun and colourful look. For those who prefer a little less colour, pair it with black trousers or denim. Nothing ties an outfit together more perfectly then a great pair of shoes, I chose a white sandal that looks great with just about anything. If your going for more of an evening look try swapping the sandals for a pair of black patten leather pumps, they are always a great choice to dress up any look.
