Hey there, it's been a while since I've last posted. Ironically I had more free time during the school year than I do now. 

Anyways, let's talk summer trends. Basically, if you do not own anything off-the-shoulder, what are you even doing with your life!? Totally kidding. However, in reality, this "cold shoulder" look is the hottest trend of the summer, and definitely my favourite thus far. 

The off-the-shoulder trend is actually quite easily wearable. You can thrown on a pair of jeans, a pair of shorts or even a skirt. My personal favourites are off-the-shoulder dresses and rompers because that one piece is your entire outfit (no need to mix and match pieces from your wardrobe). 

Surprisingly, off-the-shoulder isn't the only 90's trend to make a major comeback. Chokers, bodysuits, slip dresses and denim skirts have made it from the runway, to the top models, to Forever21. Denim skirts especially have made a huge comeback.  However, this is not your mom's 90's-esque denim skirt. This new trend is equally versatile and can be dressed up, or down. Going downtown? Throw on a crop top and a pair of wedges. Going for lunch? Add a nice pair of gladiator sandals,  a white T-shirt, a crossbody bag and a pair of statement earrings. 

When I first saw that denim skirts were making a comeback, I honestly laughed. In my mind those skirts were SO 2006 and were usually accompanied by those hideous Hollister polo's or leggings underneath (by the way, I am totally guilty of this fashion crime, *enter elementary school photographic evidence*).  The last time I wore a denim skirt, I was at sleep-away camp and thought that smearing black eyeliner all over my eyes and side-bangs were cool. I then saw Marianna Hewitt (who is stylish AF) wear one and I was like "okay i'll give this a shot". 

Side note: I was shooting this look at the Resort in Estérel, Quebec (Up-North), and this random rainbow happened. The funny thing about blogging is that there are always people around when you're taking pictures. It usually leads to some funny looks thrown your way, but I always just try to laugh it off.

5. Off-the-shoulder tops

6. Statement earrings 

7. One pieces (swimwear and bodysuits) // Zara (The best quality in my opinion) 

8. Midi-dresses

9. Dress, sneaker combo. For the first time in forever, it is actually acceptable to go out wearing a dress and sneakers and I couldn't be happier about it. I personally like wearing converse with my dresses. Although I was coveting the infamous Stan Smith's for a while, I can't even fathom how many people have those shoes and I didn't want to be a #follower. I recently got these Wishbone shoes instead and I'm LOVING them.

10. High-slit maxi skirts 

What I'm wearing: Top: H&M (very similar, Forever21)  , Jean Skirt: Second Co. (similar Forever21), Earrings: H&M (exact), Sunglasses: Ray-Ban, Shoes: ALDO (similar)

What are your favorite summer trends!? 

Have a great week
