Denim & Lace

Happy Memorial Day to all my friends from down South, I hope you're enjoying your extra long weekend! After a morning frost on Saturday it warmed up to be the most perfect temperature for a beautiful afternoon spent with Tyler and his family outdoors. I seriously wish it could stay spring forever, don't you?
Dress: Garage {exact} | Jacket: Thrifted - GAP {similar} | Necklace: Old Navy {similar}
Shoes: Tory Burch {exact}
This thrifted jacket has been a staple in my spring/summer wardrobe for years now, and I aways get super excited to bring it back into the rotation. Pastels are some of my favourite colours, but I feel like they are a bit more wearable after I've already gotten a bit of colour. Though they may seem like the same colour in these photos, this dress is actually a pale mint and the jacket a washed out blue that both look pretty killer with a tan!

You can see this jacket remixed in this post:

How did you spend your weekend?

Back To Our Regularly Scheduled Programming...

Happy Friday friends! After four long weeks of radio silence I got the amazing news yesterday that my camera is fixed (and there's no charge, it's a miracle I swear) and I can finally get back to my regular schedule & quality content! I have a bunch of post ideas that I've been collecting while my camera was out of commission so I'm excited to get back into the swing of things, but if you have any requests I'd love to hear them!

It's supposed to be a beautiful weekend so get outside and have some fun!

Guest Post: Orange Beauty

Hello everyone! My name is Erika and I blog over at Hedonist in Hats. I'm glad to be guest posting on Nadia's blog as part of the Canadian Beauty Bloggers monthly post swap. This month's theme was orange, and I am all about the orange life in the summer. Whether I'm accenting my hazel eyes with some orange in my crease or adding some coral to my cheeks, there's usually always an orange hue going on my face somewhere.

Orange is a great color that really works well on any skin tone, even people who have very light skin and red hair can add some coral if they do it strategically - I think that it looks particularly great on the lips. And for people with darker skin tones, oranges just compliment the skin so beautifully and can provide a vibrant glow.

The great thing about orange is that it never really goes out of style from year to year. While it may not always be en vogue to wear a bright orange lip and look like a pumpkin, coral is always a safe bet to give you a warm, healthy glow and it's a perfect transition shade into the autumn, even though we're a long way off from that. If you're interested in seeing what my top eight high-end orange products are, then follow the jump and take a look!
