cne 2016 midway outfit (6 of 14)
pink forever 21 dress converse low top sneakers

Going to the Ex at the end of summer is a bittersweet tradition. Read on to see what to eat, where to shop and what to see at the CNE 2016!

I wanted to dress comfortably, so I wore a pair of casual sneakers with a light pink dress to match the pastel, retro hues of the Midway at the Ex. I always love walking through the carnival stalls and watching the rides. The midway gets especially dreamy at night!

I wore a pink dress from Forever 21, low top Converse sneakers, a purple crossbody bag from Kate Spade and a Daniel Wellington watch.… View Full Post

If you’re visiting the capital region or looking for a date idea, check out my favourite date spots in Ottawa, from chic restaurants to rejuvenating spas.

el camino tacos best restaurant ottawa

1. El Camino

This Mexican restaurant often has hour-long lineups, but the tacos and cocktails are so worth it! My favourite item on their menu is the ox tongue taco. I usually go right when it opens on a weekday to get in and avoid the queue.

2. Soif

You need to cross the bridge to Gatineau, but it is so worth it. The wine bar is operated by the world’s top female sommelier, Véronique Rivest, and most of their bottles are natural wines can’t be found on the shelves of liquor stores. Oysters and prosecco make for the perfect, sensual date night.

3. Bytowne Theatre

This indie movie theatre is probably my favourite part about living in Ottawa. They screen independent and world films, as well as host film festival programs throughout the year.View Full Post

I find it difficult at times to dress for work when you have life events or parties on the same day. But I think I found the right balance with a cute navy scalloped dress that worked for the office and my sister’s convocation. To keep things work-appropriate, I wore the dress earlier in the day with black suede flats. The scalloped dress has a shorter hemline with my height, and I needed to be comfortable as I was researching in a library, so I stuck with flats in this case. I swapped those out for a pair of iridescent holo (any holosexuals out there!? I’m addicted to Cristine’s nail videos!) pumps to amp up my look into semi-formal attire for my sister’s convocation.

I’m wearing a navy scalloped dress from Winners (similar scalloped dress here), iridescent pumps from Vince Camuto, and a medium Harmony tote from Kate Spade.

An off the shoulder dress is the quintessential piece this summer. I love this Zara denim dress because it’s so versatile- whether you’re lounging around at the cottage, or grabbing drinks with the girls, this dress is on point! Chambray is one of my favourite things to wear in the summer, so here’s how to wear this chambray dress two ways:
