Summertime fun has begun! Okay, it technically begins June 21, but that shouldn’t stop our fun. See below for two looks I created for the season using two color groups, pastels and primaries. Oh, and a little metallic for fun. I love pieces that feature basic geometric shaped in primary hues. For the pastel look, I focused on whimsical shapes and designs, kind of like a summer galaxy. That summer galaxy vibe lead to the metallic jacket paired with goggles, which is so much fun! The primary look below is perfect for a beach date or garden picnic. While the other, is so fitting for a summer sunset outing for ice cream and milkshakes.
2016 is wrapping up, but there are some trends that are here to stay (for me, anyway!). Slip dresses over tees, graphic tees, pastels, and shimmery fabrics will have this fashion editor’s heart forever.

Though comparatively mild to the rest of our Great White North neighbours, Vancouver’s West Coast winters are no joke. So, when the sunshine decides to turn up, the city and its inhabitants get that much needed vitamin D boost. Reenergized and revitalized, the boys and I take advantage of outdoor urban life as much as we can. Aimlessly wandering, we naturally started our day at the park. Fresh air and fun times always leaves us a bit famished. We eventually found ourselves down at Granville Island for a little refuelling. Sitting outside on the pier not only allows us to take in the beautiful waterfront views but keeps the little ones occupied just enough for me to squeeze in a few bites myself. If all else fails, they also have each other to keep occupied. Unfortunately for Mase, that doesn’t always work out in his favour!
Building your kid’s wardrobe is as important as our own when one asks a mother. Just like adults, there will always be the must have lines. I wanted to hit on those items for our children and how I like to play them down. When I splurge for Wang, I down it with some Topshop… When Revel goes Bobo, we down it with total complimenting pieces that can pair differently a thousand times.
I always find a super strong foundation. The statement. From there I build on colors/moods. This Chateau Bobo Choses top has intense blacks & the smallest hint of blue. Pull out hidden gems by adding a pop-ful accessory companion. These Marc Jacobs head phones draw your eye straight to the blue, while our Mason & The Tambourine shorts and Ruum Boots pull down the dark. The last addition is the Lot801 scarf, great for breaking up your color schemes or just adding a minimal token.
