Take it Easy

Tee shirt c/o Gap, H&M wedges, Rebecca Minkoff bag, DIY shorts, necklace c/o Blackbird
This is about as casual as it can possibly get (barring a matching sweatsuit outfit or yoga pants, that is). One of my best friends moved to TO this weekend to stay for the rest of the summer so naturally, we celebrated her arrival, meaning I was not feeling my absolute best in these pics! Really though, I’ll jump at any excuse to wear my favourite cut-offs or Gap’s super comfortable and soft shirt, so a casual Sunday night dinner party seemed like a perfect time to throw on some of my comfiest, no-fail pieces (I needed room to eat, after all).
Anyway, I had such a great weekend and am so excited to have one of my favourites here!
Hope you all had an amazing weekend as well, and don’t forget to enter my Hattitude necklace giveaway – ends this Friday!

    You're too funny, pally – and I have to say, you really put the rest of us to shame by looking so gorgeous while hungover. How unfair! Loving this simple look, especially with the addition of that fabulous geometric necklace. So pretty. Miss you!

    No matter how much I love dress up, yet cool casual looks are my favorites. I usaually go for jeans and soft, simple T-shirt. I like your look even it's simple and casual yet you look so stylish.
