summer style link up

good morning everyone! i'm very happy to be co-hosting the summer style link up today with tara at mix & match fashion. she's one of my favourite bloggers, so this was beyond fun for me to do. her outfit is a great casual weekend look. my outfit sums up my summer uniform for 2014: white on white, and midi skirts. i will always love colour, so it always finds its way into the picture in some form. it would be great if you joined the link up too - the instructions are below!

the last few weeks have been really hectic. i don't think work got the memo that it's summer. already, my kids are talking about how the summer is almost over. yikes. it really has been flying right by, hasn't it?

my outfit - t shirt: madewell. skirt: zara. similar hereherehere. cute black one here. shoes: h&m. similar here. purse: miss dior. similar hereherehere. rings aldo, here.

gap boyfriend jean shorts

i cherish my weekends with my family, especially those in the summer. we have a tradition of "family date night" where all four of us go out and relax on a patio somewhere on a saturday night. going out isn't really the key thing but mostly for us, it's the chance to enjoy some quiet time together. while i love coming up with reasons to dress up, comfortable and casual outfits are de rigueur when you're out and about walking for hours on end. it's just such a relaxing and fabulous time just to be able to spend this time with my boys. they are growing up so quickly, and we are just so busy. it is good to take a step, slow down and enjoy.

sizing wise, i went with my regular gap 25/0 for boyfriend cuts, as i find these are made big, so for me, i usually go down one size in my regular jeans size. don't forget to come back tomorrow and join tara and i me *thanks Mindy* with the summer style link up!

clover canyon hollywood bowl print dress

i've been travelling a fair bit this summer, and have had engagements, showers and client dinners to go to. it was a fateful day when i found out how much neoprene can help nip and tuck things in. this is an incredibly forgiving material and the clover canyon prints are absolutely breathtaking. the colours are vivid and some of these colour combinations beyond beautiful. i've been lucky to find this clover canyon dress on sale. it holds up wonderfully for travel and really easy to pack. no worries matching your shoes to the dress - there are so many colours and combinations! add to the fact that fit and flare shapes are also a girl's cheat sheet too, and i have myself an easy outfit rolled into one.

i am co-hosting the summer style link up with tara at mix & match fashion on thursday. we would love for you to come on by and join the fun!
