The Summer Style Report: White Out

I have lately been digging the palest shades on the colour-less spectrum: whites, off-whites, and everything in between. It does match my Snow White skin, after all - HA!

But let's be real, sometimes it can be hard for an ultra pale gal like me to wear whites without blinding people, but I say if you're liking the pale shades of white this summer, go for them! We all have to face the sun sooner or later.

When I think of the "colour" (colour/shade debate - you decide) white, I think of things like daisies, marshmallows, and light sandy beaches. If that doesn't scream S-U-M-M-E-R to you, I don't know what does.

[Side note: Yes, I am aware that I have left out the obvious: snow, snowmen, wild yetis. Realistically, who wants to blend in with the snow? I stick to my darks in the winter for a reason. I'll stop with the pale jokes now. Did you hear? Pale is the new tan. It even said on a t-shirt.]

These five picks are great to pair with a splash of colour or simple neutrals like black, but I would bring out the light greys and earthy tones. Save your black wardrobe for the dreary months of slush invasions and ice traps.

The Date Night: Pizza Party and Parks

Thursday night was date night, and if that's any indication, "date night" is ALWAYS synonymous to "food fiesta". Justin and I opted for an acclaimed classic: Pizza Libretto. If you've never once had wood oven pizza, you are severely deprived.

The Lippy Post: YSL Rouge Volupté Shine in #13 "Pink in Paris"

Have you ever been in love? In the world of things, I think I've only come close twice. My love for guacamole will soon be evident, but my second love has to be this beauty of a lipstick. Materialistic indulgences aside, I purchased this baby with a gift card I got for my birthday last year. Let me tell you, I couldn't be happier that I had used the $60.00 gift card for this one item; it is a godsend to my lips! You're probably thinking, "man, this chick's exaggerating", but you do have the option to try before you buy! Visit your local Sephora/YSL counter, slick it on, and be transported to the land of the unicorns. Okay, maybe that's a stretch...

Pleased to meet you.

Dear potential readers, subscribers, cat ladies, and fashion-seekers,

I'm doing it.

 I am finally embarking on the journey that is blog-writing. Is one even supposed to write an introductory blog post up in these places? Being the new girl on the block is an intriguing and simultaneously fear-inducing role, but I am ready for you guys! Hit me!
