Back-to-school time always has a tendency to bring out my preppier side and while this outfit isn’t exactly termed preppy, I definitely feel more put together than when I am wearing my summer uniform consisting of shorts and tees.

I can’t even begin to tell you how much I have been loving this vest. I’m so glad i bought it because I have been wearing it nonstop lately. Today, I paired it with this seersucker blouse from The Fraternity Collection. The Fraternity Collection is a company dedicated to southern, preppy style and I love combining that style with my more Canadian style. I love how the edginess of my vest compliments the classiness of my shirt.

For bottoms, I’m wearing my boyfriend jeans from American Eagle. Currently, my legs are covered in mosquito bites so goodbye shorts and hello jeans. I’m not even complaining though, I love these jeans! As for shoes, I recently got these Steve Madden heels for a super good price at Town Shoes. They are surprisingly comfy and not so surprisingly adorable.

For accessories, I kept it pretty simple with one of my new favorite bracelets from the Willamy Collection. It is a beaded leather wrap bracelet and I think it goes great with this outfit! I love the layered look of it! I then just slipped on a cool pair of sunglasses because even though summer is slipping away, the sun hasn’t quite yet.

Colour Pop Eyeshadows Review

I have heard such great things about these eyeshadows from Colour Pop but I was never quite convinced. How good could an eyeshadow really be after all? Aren’t they all the same?

NO. The answer is definitely no. These eyeshadows from Colour Pop are like no other shadows. Everything about them is perfect. Let’s talk about the formula first. These are creme-like powders that have an elastic-like texture. This means there isn’t any fallout and they apply beautifully. Plus, they last super long and don’t even crease throughout the day. Next, let’s talk about the pigmentation. Oh my goodness, are these ever pigmented. Take a look at those swatches, are those not the most beautiful colors you’ve ever seen? From left to right is ‘I Heart This’ which is a gorgeous light taupe. It is perfect for all over the lid. Next is ‘Desert’ which is a warm medium brown. ‘On The Rocks’ is a deep bronze with purple and gold glitter. I love this one for deepening up the crease. Next is ‘Amaze’, which is the perfect rose gold. I think golds with pink undertones are the most flattering colors! To the right of that one is ‘Meow’, which is such a cool color! It is a tie-dye shadow with pink, purple, and gunmetal colors that all combine to produce one gorgeous shade! Lastly, ‘Envy’ is a deep black with tons of purple glitter! It is the perfect color to line my eyes with!

Colour Pop has so many beautiful shades of eyeshadows and I think I need every single one. I’m not even exaggerating. And did I mention the price? Each eyeshadow is only $5. For quality like this, that’s practically, no definitely, a steal.

I’m a rainbow

This summer, I’ve been shying away from color. But sometimes, I just want to go back to my roots and step out in an outfit that is reminiscent of a rainbow. Because who doesn’t want to be a rainbow?

This dress is from a cute boutique called the Happy Wardrobe and it is a summer staple. It is such a light material so it’s absolutely perfect for the hottest of summer days. It has cute three quarter length sleeves with a accompanying navy belt. I love the coral color and print of this dress. Coral is the mandatory summer color.

For jewelry, I went along with the colorful theme. The cuff is also from The Happy Wardrobe. It goes great with the dress with the blue underlay and the gold metal. My necklace from the Hawthorne Collection also compliments the colors in the dress perfectly. As for shoes and purse, I think these two are pretty self-explanatory. I feel like I have been wearing this combination every single day this summer. But don’t change something that isn’t broken right? I think that rule applies to fashion.

Back to School Fashion

I know you all are going to hate me for saying this, but school is right around the corner. So, it’s about time to start thinking about back-to-school fashion. Let’s start putting away the crop tops and shorts and pull out the fall sweaters. Summer is over y’all.

As I have recently mentioned on my blog before, Aeropostale relaunched it’s new look with AeroNow. It’s more focused on trendy, stylish clothing and I recently had the opportunity to pick out some pieces.

I have always been obsessed with printed jeans so when I saw this colorful pair, I knew it belonged in my closet. These are the perfect transition piece for the end of summer. The colors are the perfect mix of summer and fall! Plus, they’re high waisted so I was able to pair them with my olive crop top! I fell in love with this oversized cardi that is from Bethany Mota’s new collection at Aeropostale. It is so warm and cozy and I have been wearing it with almost every outfit. It’s a great layering piece.

I dressed up the look a bit with some heeled booties, my favorite layered necklaces and of course, my favorite purse of the moment. I know you guys aren’t the happiest about going back to school but at lease fall fashion trends are super cute this year, am I right? Or am I right?
