PERSONALIZING MINIMAL STYLE - PART 1

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

I am SO excited to share this shoot with you guys! A collaboration with my two best friends - Randa & Sharday - was way overdue. When the three of us are together, people often comment on our complimenting style. We share the same love for minimal designs and muted looks, and regularly show up in monochrome looks at the same time (no memos, I promise!), there is always a distinctive difference between our styles. Coincidentally (or not), these pictures are the perfect example of those differences. Can you spot them?

As for the designs we are wearing... They are (hand!) made by the incredibly stylish Melissa Araujo. I first came across Melissa via Instagram and had no idea that she lives in Vancouver as well! I love her monochrome style and her minimalistic approach to her designs and her personal looks. I encourage you to visit her website and check out her minimal designs. Curious to see more of her own style? She blogs as well and offers a daily dose of inspiration on Instagram @melissa.araujo.

SUMMER CLASSICS

 
 
 

These pictures were taking a while ago, but I am still rocking these classics as we're currently enjoying that so-called 'Indian Summer'. I am sure it will start cooling down soon, which I don't mind at all. Sure, I wish I had spent more days at the beach the last few months, but I am pretty excited for a new season. Speaking of new: there is a major blog change coming up which I can't wait to tell you more about. Stay tuned! 

WEARING // COS basic white tee, Element black distressed shorts, Birkenstock all-black Arizona sandals, Zara quilted chain bag, Le Specs sunglasses.

STREETSCOUT


In July I met up with the lovely couple behind the lens of StreetScout - a local photography duo that captures 'a realistic profile of street style with an eye toward the fashionable'. It's always fun to meet new people and work together on a shoot, so I wanted to share some shots of our collaboration with you. Head on over to StreetScout's blog for more pictures and a little Q&A on summer style!
