Black and white is going to be THE fall look for me.  I've spent years collecting patterned and/or colourful pieces, and suddenly all I can seem to put together is all black, all white, or a combination of the two.  Isn't it so funny how fashion works?  At least we all have something to contribute to the trend, as this duo really is a timeless pairing.

But, since I did decide to add and element of new, I'm SO glad I finally got a white blazer, even though it's linen I'm going to try to rock it for as long as possible.  And the see through black tee is going to take me far, I just know it.  Thank you LOFT for being a one stop shop and for my 'photographer' Adam for finding this gem of a spot in the city!

"I'm adorable!  I look like Keira Knightley running errands." is one of my favourite Mindy Kaling quotes from The Mindy Project.  It perfectly encapsulates how I feel when I'm wearing a sporty-chic look.  Slightly slouchy and laid back - effortless, really.  No matter how much time, thought, and money you've poured into it!  I had all of this in mind when I popped into the Lululemon in Kitsilano on West 4th.  I stocked up on the usual Ta-Ta Tamer (hands down, best sports bra. ever.) and a cute little tennis skirt.  But, I wanted to go beyond my exercise gear and venture into their everyday wear.

Low and behold, the best darn shorts around.  These have been a summer staple for me, I feel like I can barely remember what dressing was like before them.  They've already been on all sorts of adventures, including my flights to and from Vegas, a couple road trips, and even sailing!  They're comfortable, exactly on trend, and somehow flattering.  I can only assume they're also magic.

They get at least one more big adventure before summer is over at Lululemon's Sunset Festival a.k.a. the Seawheeze after party.  And no, I won't be running it this time around, but have it be known that these shorts really could take me from a half marathon to an afterparty, no problem.  Anyway, you should come join me!  Really though, I don't have anyone to go with...so like, you should come with.  Details are below xoxo
