Let's go to the beach

Ohh been feeling so fly since you’ve been gone
My face to the sky, sunglasses on
Turnin' up the beat so sick
I’m like a brand new chick

Beautiful weather here in Toronto!  I am loving my summer.  I got a weekends only job doing bottle service at a swanky upscale chic sexy nightclub and I think it is going to be a lot of fun!  This way I can focus more on doing my blog during the week as well as looking for jobs in my field of PR & Communications.


TREND UPDATE


Wedges are so hot right now!  You have to be careful because some wedges are just ridiculous and others are fabulous.  Here are some that I love.

Neon has made a huge comeback since my preteen years (back in the 90's) when everyone wanted to dress like the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.  These bright hughes are huge this summer!  I am on a hunt for something in yellow, hopefully something similar to this gorgeous piece by Elise Overland.

I have always loved pink and this shade is stunning!  This dress by Jason Wu shows three other great trends, cutouts, maxi length skirting as well as sheer overlay.  Photo via Imaxtree.
Can't forget colour blocking!  I am on the hunt for something yellow and I love this whole outfit by Nina Ricci.  I would wear every piece especially the gorgeous high waisted skirt.  The bow detail on the top really adds perfect detail to finish the look.  Photo via Imaxtree.

Patterns are huge right now!  More trends to try:  Tribal prints & crop tops are super cute if worn properly.  Coming soon to a post near you.  Here is a great clutch I am lusting over by Jimmy Choo, it combines neon with a gorgeous leopard pattern!

I am loving the cigarette-hole and crochet effect for summer.   It is easier to layer on your knits when it is cool and breezy at night and it gives and edgy sophisticated look.  Today's outfit is brought to you by a gorgeous skirt I picked up at BCBG that features tiny cigarette-hole detailing that I am in love with!  The skirt is super soft and a pale, nude colour.  So many outfits planned for this baby!  Here are some photos of my outfit for today.
What do you think?  Shirt tucked in or out?  I am wearing my mother's vintage clock necklace and a stack of bracelets I grabbed randomly before heading outside.  The skirt was down from $220 to $50! 
Close up on the details of the cigarette-holes!  The skirt has a suede feel but not as heavy.

I am working as a bottle service girl on the weekend!  Super excited to meet some new people and make some cash. 
For tomorrow... heading to the beach!  Which bikini to wear?  Hmmmm...
My camera is coming along to the beach with me!  Can not wait to soak up the sun.
