What To Wear to A Summer BBQ

I don't get excited about summer until I am officially able to BBQ. I'm not quite sure what I mean by "officially", however, I do know there is nothing more satisfying than the smell of food grilling on the BBQ. Not to mention, everything seems to taste better when you've cooked it on the BBQ doesn't it?

When it comes to dressing for a BBQ get together, comfort is essential. This type of gathering is one of fun and relaxation so go for bright colours and fun prints. Think light and airy, oversized and flowing pieces that allow you to move effortlessly and perhaps even conceal that "food baby" which may inevitably pop up after that hamburger, grilled chicken kebab, second helping of sweet potato fries and grilled veggies (always eat your veggies!).

Take It From Your Marshmallows

Like marshmallows are heaven with melted chocolate, so too are crisp whites in the upcoming warm-weather months. Blame my love of S'mores (though, who doesn't love them?!) as inspiration for these white pairings with rich brown tones. The muted colour of spring is perfectly grounded with earthy tones like cognac, slate and of course chocolate. When it comes to wearing white experiment with different materials and fabrics like soft leathers and pretty lace and add accents of bright colours like the turquoise shown below and other vibrant hues of the season like fluorescent pink, hot red, tangerine and kelly green. Now if you excuse me, I am going to finish my breakfast of marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers (if only).

Cobra. Boa. Rattle. Python.

While I may have no desire to come face-to-face with a snake, have a pet snake or even eat snake to wear a python print I will gladly endorse. The slithering creature makes for a great source of inspiration when it comes to summer dressing and had transferred it's print to summer pumps and sandals, chic jewellery and handbags you'll be begging to hold on to (as opposed to that somewhat inevitable child-like scream that comes out every once and a while. What?! Snakes are scary).

Hot Pants

While last spring was all about soft toned neutrals, S/S 11 is all about infusing your wardrobe with hot hues. One way to incorporate the season's bag-of-skittles colour palette into your own closet is by pulling on a pair of hot hued pants. The key to making this look end with a pot of gold is by keeping your bottoms as the statement-maker while the other pieces of your outfit simply compliment.

Ladies Night

Single lady or not, a girls night out is undeniably one of the most fun socials penciled into your calendar. Girls night, as I am sure you already know, is all about going out with your best friends and getting a little (or a lot) crazy. SO this is absolutely the time to have fun with your wardrobe and try something more daring than your usual ensemble.

Ship Shape

For the longest time I hated stripes. And then my aunt forced me to try on stripes. I now love stripes. My nautical obsession is somewhat ubiquitous with the spring and summer wardrobe of a fashionista, and for good reason quite frankly. Reason being, pairing this season stripe with your favourite solid pieces (perhaps a hot hued trouser or a pencil skirt in a grounded navy or slate tone) is effortlessly chic. Not to mention, for those of us fashion girls who work during these warm months (aka most) incorporating a few nautical pieces accompanied with the imagination of spending the weekend in Cannes may subside that migraine from that stack of paperwork.

Oxford Women

Lace-up styles were all over the S/S 11 runways and are undeniably at the top of this fashion blogger's list of Must-Haves for this season. Reason being, designers have taken this old school style and made it refreshingly modern with intriguing textures, luxurious materials and even hot hues your feet will surely "Thank you" for.

When it comes to styling you can take a couple routes to highlight your fashionably adorned pied. You may choose to contrast the masculinity of your oxfords with feminine pieces such as floral tops or an airy ankle length skirt. Alternatively go for a relaxed look with your favourite pair of worn-in denim, oversized thin knit pullover and hobo leather bag.

Oh So Golden

Hemlines are rising. Shoulders are bare. Necklines plunging. All the while I can't help but notice one thing - I. Am. Extremely. Pale. And when I say "pale" I mean I am borderline reflecting any light that hits my bare skin (there is potential hazard in this ladies! I can imagine the headline now "Seven Car Pile-Up on Princess St. Due to Glare Caused by Girls Paleness" could happen). 
Though, I digress. As laying out in the sun is months away and crawling into a tanning bed is less than desirable, bronzers are the way to fake that golden goddess glow. Everyone can wear a bronzer, the trick, however, is choosing the right shade and applying it properly.

Mama's Day

Happy Mother's Day! 

While today is Mother's Day and most of you have likely already shopped that perfect gift for your Mum, I love the idea of going out with my Mother and buying her a special something while we're together. There is the inevitable back and forth of "No, no I don't need it" and then the "I'll buy you something at the next store" and then when the Visa goes through and my Mama turns to me and says "Thank you SO much! I LOVE it!" Whatever it is I end up buying it's nothing compared to everything my Mama has given/taught me over the years. 

Lots of love to the Mama Bears, Mamacitas, Mommys and Mums we love so much!

Mother's Day Contest

Mother's Day is right around the corner (Sunday May 8th) and our Mother's Day Contest officially ends tomorrow and the winner will be announced at 9am on Facebook! As I write this post, eleven entries have been made and each one inevitably makes me smile. The one common factor in every entry, is how inspirational these mama bears are to their loving daughters. No matter who wins I think the greatest takeaway from this contest is how important our mother's truly are in our lives.
