Socks + sandals
Fashion. Food. Flair.
Tee, Fashion. Food. Flair.: "Socks and sandals are in (shocker!). Who would have thought that the look that immediately brings stereotypical images of the average dad to mind would hit the runways?" Find out more about Tee's socks and sandals look, here.
Kristina, Kourture Kitten: "Before there were even signs of spring, I decided to buy this floral jumpsuit. It still really isn't here yet where I live in Ottawa, but that's OK — I'm taking advantage of any type of sun." Find out more about Kristina's look, here.
The Souls Of My Shoes
Kimberly, The Souls Of My Shoes: "This number by Aquazzura is especially captivating with its sumptuous, pomegranate-coloured suede, EXTREMELY high heel (5.5 inches to be exact) and lace-up detail. This stunner is sky high and adds the perfect pop of vibrant colour to any summer outfit." Kimberly shares more about these Aquazzura platforms, here.
Pretty in pink
Amanda, Latest Wrinkle: "The Nicolette Mason x Addition Elle collaboration was a delight to me as Nicolette and her lover-of-all-things-pink self, is a woman after my own heart! I loved the girly pieces and I picked out this beautiful dress, called "The Natalie," with the incredible mesh sweetheart detail and floral lace hem." Find out more about Amanda's look, here.
Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Gel Cream + SPF 15
Henna, Canadian Beauty: "This is the lightest sunscreen-containing moisturizer I have ever used, and of course, it doesn't leave a whitish cast on your skin because it’s so light." Read Henna's full review of Neutrogena's Hydro Boost Gel Cream, here.
Cool girl chic
Allure Of Simplicity

How to look good in any photo
